It’s fixed! №46

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.

Optimised ship repair process

We have greatly re-designed the repair mechanics for naval but most importantly we made it faster! Now even the heaviest repairs will not last longer than 40 seconds. Repairing less complex damage has also been improved and the repair logic is as follows:

  • The timer during the repair shows the time for the most difficult (lengthiest) repair of modules.
  • After receiving new damage, the updated timer will show the time until the end of the repair of the module that was previously functional, which again received damage. In this case the module that is already in repair will be repaired in the previously indicated time despite the hits.

In general you are familiar with this mechanic from ground battles. Naval battles will become a little more dynamic.

Working on the performance by explosions

After the “Wind of Change” update some players encountered freezes during explosions. The cause has been figured out - a new effect of fragments which spectacularly fly around the point of impact of the shell affected performance.

While we are busy with optimization of this part of the effect - it is temporarily disabled for objects. But remained on the surface and water as it does not have such a noticeable impact on performance.

This is one of many examples of little things that can affect performance and your comfort. We are working on them all the time.

Fixed camera in replays

A little bit of good news for those who like to capture their best moments. We have fixed the “cameraman” camera which was broken some time ago. In some cases it was inside the tank's barrel if you switched to it during a pause.

Fixed! Enjoy the content creation process!
