Multiplayer. Multiplayer is the only thing that's not in build 41 at this time.

We made the decision to release build 41 without it because fixing and balancing both would have been an impossible task for us, the game would have released in a bad state with both SP and MP needing lots of fixes, and the wait for build 41 would have been a lot longer if people weren't able to at least play SP in the meantime.  

Multiplayer is basically a complete rewrite. We went into details here:

As a whole, build 41 gives you basically a new game. I can only recommend to try it yourself if the lack of Multiplayer is not somehow a deal-breaker. Playing it now will get you accustomed to all the changes as it is what Project Zomboid is going to be going forward, and it maybe will even give you an edge compared to people who don't play until MP is out. You'd also help shape the game as you provide us with feedback and your thoughts on how build 41 plays. The changes will take some time to get used to for someone coming from build 40 but it's no doubt a better game because of it.

The majority of people who are active on this forum, our Discord, and our Steam discussion boards are playing build 41 if that's an indicator of how stable it is.

@nasKo Were sleep events also disabled for build 41? 

 

Just to build on nasKo's comment, build 41 is VERY much playable at the moment and would highly recommend it. Just be aware that bugs are possible (normally graphical or gameplay issues rather than major game breaking ones) and to report any significant bugs that you may find :) 

 

+ there are plenty of mods also available for the build if that tickles your fancy (keep in mind though this can make it a lot buggier, but they are fun! Check out the Superb Survivors mod)
