In this digest we would like to tell you about the work on improvements and fixes in the game. You can find information about all updates that have been released in War Thunder in the website special section.
As much as everyone likes to destroy tankers, you have to know the limits. That’s why this time we will begin our “It’s fixed!” digest with some good news for them. Bombs that have been dropped on the ground are no longer magnetically fixed to vehicles that have passed over them!
This is exactly what happened previously - when you drove over a dropped bomb it would fix itself to the bottom of your vehicle with very predictable results. It won’t happen again.
Angular inner world
X-Ray view is very useful in a battle - it allows you to accurately assess the condition of vehicle modules and crew to better understand the vulnerabilities of your vehicle.
But in rare cases the detailing of the interior of the vehicle may have decreased and you viewed the engine, ammo and crew members as angular models.
Although the issue was just a visual one and had no effect on the damage model, we have returned the visual detail to the internal modules and their surroundings in the X-Ray view.
Fixed thermal imaging sensor
A simple but welcome fix. Your helicopter’s thermal imager will now be able to detect another helicopter at ranges greater than 5 kilometres.
Previously the helicopter’s thermal image camera could not detect another helicopter at this range. It was a kind of professional solidarity.
Creating and configuring vehicles for War Thunder is an incredibly difficult process in which even the smallest little thing can lead to big trouble. For example a trivial error with the 3rd person camera position on the F-89B, F-89D and P.108A led to the fact that the tail unit loomed within the aiming line. And that’s all - you were not able to shoot or to bomb.
A little time and patience and the problem has been fixed. Have a more comfortable flight.
For each release of the “It’s fixed!” digest we are collecting the most notable improvements to the game that are fun to read about. However in addition to these you will also find separate improvements in the changelog that will likely directly improve your own game experience.
This time we have worked on aircraft armament and clarified the settings of the ground vehicle transmission - the latter change will allow some vehicles to become more dynamic and more powerful even without increasing engine power!
Once again, many thanks for all your bug reports that you submitted in our bug report section on the War Thunder forums.
