In this digest we would like to tell you about our continuing work on improvements and fixes in the game. You can find information about all updates that have been released in War Thunder on the website special section.
Continuing to improve digging
In one of the recent publications of “It’s fixed!”, we told you about the optimization of performance and general improvements to terramorphing and reported on further priorities to refine the interaction of vehicles with terraformed surfaces.
It’s done! We significantly improved the behavior of the vehicles in trenches and craters created with blades and shovels. Vehicles as well as the gunner’s sights shouldn’t twitch anymore.
Fixed the “flying” thermal imager
A rather critical bug was allowing the gunner's thermal imager to run without being in gunner view, but while using 3rd person view. We want to thank all the players that reported this problem to us separately.
It’s fixed now. The thermal imager is back in its place.
Retrained air defense
We are already paying a lot of attention to air defense in air battles: improving the working logic, adding more modern means of protection. Now our focus is on protecting airfields for aircraft and helicopters in combined battles. Let’s see what has been changed:
We have streamlined the number of cannons on all airfields. So now, while you are being repaired, you will be assiduously covered by 4 large-calibre cannons and 6 automatic medium-calibre cannons.
Improved the logic of air defense firing towards helicopter pads. They now fire evenly instead of short sparse fire bursts that sometimes cause unexpectedly excessive and instant damage. Also, beyond the maximum firing range, air defense will fire warning shots that should scare away some of the fans of easy targets and clearly notify them of entering the danger zone.
An additional improvement is that we have increased the update rate for the targets that have left the target zone so the air defense system will stop firing shots faster. If you ran away, why waste shells?
For this digest we have prepared a large set of useful fixes and game improvements. Be sure to read the full list which we have prepared in the separate changelog - there are many interesting things.
Once again, many thanks for all your bug reports that you submitted in our bug report section on the War Thunder forums.
