It’s fixed! №65

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.

Have a pleasant flight!

A week ago we added[] an ability for ground vehicles to keep moving in cruise control whilst a player controls the UAV. But the ground vehicles decided to misbehave: with cruise control enabled they kept stopping, and when in neutral they started moving instead.

The error has now been fixed. Let cruise control keep moving your vehicle in the right direction while you enjoy your pleasant flight in the UAV.

Fixed aircraft torpedoes

In naval locations, such as Golden Bay, Japanese Port, Black Sea Port, and Drowned City, there are cargo ships, oil tankers, and hulks of damaged ships. Naturally, they are supposed to be obstacles for various projectiles. And they were — for torpedoes launched from ships. But the torpedoes launched from aircraft could slip through models of damaged and other static ships. Well, it won’t happen again!

Smoke means safety

A smokescreen is supposed to hide your movements from the enemy: as you hide behind it, the marker of your tank disappears from your enemy’s screen, and they can’t track you. Well, now they definitely can’t as before, if your enemy kept holding RMB, they could track you even after your marker disappeared behind the smokescreen. This was an error, and we’ve fixed it. Feel safe behind the cover of smoke!
