Update 22.07.14 (1.41.29.26)

Main Changes

  • New lighting render has been added;

  • Physics have been improved;

  • Planned changes in ground forces matching, battle ratings and progression rate;

  • Squad streaks;

  • Ground forces maps improvements;

  • Bugfixes and massive corrections to performance figures of ground forces;

  • Multiple aircraft flight models have been updated;

Gameplay

  • Fixed AI tank behaviour during collisions. Now they will have the same collision mechanics as player-controlled vehicles;

  • Added base visibility check when viewed through trees - at the moment it is only enabled for the armour penetration indicator in AB;

  • Fixed a bug causing players to be unable to douse fire whilst in water.

  • Added repair and rearming of ground vehicles at capture points;

  • Added influence of tank crew on detection. A non trained crew will be able to locate targets up to 1km away, fully trained to up to 1.5km; direction of detection as follows: commander - towards camera direction, aimer - towards barrel direction, driver and radio operator - towards tank movement direction;

  • AI aircraft take off behaviour has been improved;

  • Improved tank physics on the ground, especially when crossing trenches;

  • Ground forces visibility check has been improved;

 

Graphics and Models

  • Improved rendering. Diffused lighting added; this will improve objects and landscape visibility in deep shadows, particularly in dusk and dawn time.

  • Fixed an issue causing anti-air vehicles’ barrels to get stuck in rare cases;

  • Added penetration visualisation on flexible parts of ground vehicles and aircraft;

  • Collimator sight brightness now depends on the time of the day;

  • Visuals of the VOF-530 (KV-2) HE shell hits improved.

 

Economy and Progression ( Not implemented yet! )

  • Reduced the amount of RP rewarded for tank battles to better match the air vehicles progression speed;

  • All ground vehicles’ Battle Ratings have been adjusted to better match aircraft BRs and reduce the waiting times (full list of changes);

  • Maximum gap between the lowest and the highest ranked vehicles in a battle set to 1.0 BR; now the rule of maximum 1.0 BR spread applies to all modes;
  • Aircraft economy and Battle Ratings adjustments (full list of changes).

 

Interface

  • Added visual warning about incoming artillery attack;

  • Added ground vehicles’ symbols for the web map;

  • It is now possible to share the following events on Facebook:

    • Vehicle purchases;

    • Researching of all modifications for a vehicle;

[PS4]


  • Added localization for  French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Polish. It's selected automatically based on Language setting in System Software.
  • Vehicle purchases are now shared to "Recent Activities" feed.

 

 

Damage Model Changes

  • Many small errors fixed in ground vehicles damage models (missing support rollers, reserve tracks, external shields);

  • Extra normalization added when the shell calibre exceeds armour thickness. Maximum additional angle of the normalization is 6 degrees if shell calibre exceeds armour thickness by three times.


FM Changes

  • F2A-3, G. 50 serie 7AS, Spitfire Mk Vb and F. Mk IX, G4M1, Blenheim Mk IV, B-17 series, Ki-49, Ju-87 - preliminary tuned.

  • I-16 type 27 and 28, F8F-1b flight models updated to better meet historical data;

  • Drag coefficient reconsidered for 500kg and bigger bombs (reduced) and Br. 21 rockets (slightly increased);

  • Fixed rudder behaviour at low speeds during control-rod locking;

  • Fixed bug that caused deflectable trimmer position set on the ground to not save after test flight;


Weapons and modifications

  • Fixed elevation angles for М4А2 Sherman tank from -12+25 degrees to -10+25 degrees. (According to Hunnicutt  “Sherman. A History of the American Medium Tank” page 542);

  • More detailed armouring model of the Pz.Kpfw IV ausf. H series, arrangement of protection now is after Trojca “Sd.Kfz.161 Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf. G-H-J [vol. 2]” page 15. Hull back - 20mm, side skirts 8mm, roof of the turret is separated on two zones with armouring of 95 and 30mm;

  • 152mm cumulitive BP-540 shells for ISU-152 have been added;

  • Blunt head AP BP-540B shells for ML-20S (SU-152, ISU-152) have been added. Default shell changed to pointed BR-540;

  • Starting speed of the Pz.Gr.39 shell for 105mm KwK.46 cannon has been changed from 900 to 1005m/s (after “German Steel Armour Piercing Projectiles and the Theory of Penetration” page 30);

  • Added a parameter that simulates anti-recoil and muzzle brake systems. It is more noticeable on light vehicles with powerful cannons (ZIS-30, GAZ with anti-air 72-K cannon etc.);

  • Reduced arc of fire for ZIS-30, traverse angle to the left was decreased from 30 to 17 degrees so gun breech won't go through model of the loader;


Missions and Maps

 

Carpathians

  • There is no longer line of sight between the central hill and the Northern respawn point in Arcade battles;

  • Fixed some landscape collision bugs;

Jungle

  • Riverbed has been reworked so ground vehicles will not drown when entering the water;

  • Added a pathway to the hilltop in the centre of the beach from the right respawn point;

  • Centre capture point area has been slightly changed so the team from the left respawn point will have better protection;

  • Added shell-hole textures to the existing shell-holes;


Sound

  • Added sounds from recordings of the original Griffon engine for all the variants of the Spitfire fitted with Griffon.

  • Improved firing sounds for Kw.K, Kw.K 36, Kw.K 37, Kw.K 38, Kw.K 39, Kw.K 40, Kw.K 42, 20-К, ZiS-4, ZiS-5, L-11, F-34 cannons.

  • Added sounds for the Sh-37 cannon.

  • New sounds for the MK-103 30mm cannon (both aircraft and anti-air variants).

 

 

 

Update

  • Fixed errors in Mouse Aim mode;
  • Added two aviation missions in RB mode: [Operation] Kuban. Myshako and [Event] Attack on Pearl Harbor
  • Respawn points for tanks on Carpathians [RB and SB] was moved further away to increase battle zone size;
  • Fixed bug on northern respawn points on Carpathians [AB]. Tanks should no longer spawn inside the rocks;
