Game version 2.004 changes

Post by Silk » Wed Oct 19, 2016 12:03 pm

Today's patch to 2.004 brings with it a multitude of things that look like they will improve things for pilots and mission builders alike. The things that will probably effect us the most are:
2. In this new version (2.004) missions format was changed, so binary missions which were created in previous versions will not work properly. To restore your mission delete .msnbin file and keep only .Mission file, open in in Mission Editor and re-save it with new .msnbin binary mission.
1. First optimization task completed: AI controlled aircraft on the ground can be doubled, while resources used by aircraft in the air decreased by 20%;
....
39. It is now possible to give the spotter ability to an aircraft, making it recon plane;
40. It is now possible to give the spotter ability to a spawned object;
41. Cloud height and thickness can be set in a mission;
42. More than 32 buildings can be destroyed in a city block (restriction removed);
....
51. Significant performance increase for ships (their impact on the game performance is reduced 5 times);
1. Cloud level height (distance between the ground and clouds bottom) can be set to any reasonable value. Cloud thickness is limited for different weather presets:

Landed the P40, cut the throttle and rolled to a stop with some light rudder input without ground looping. Also there's a lot less bounce on landing and if you do bounce you can now just let the plane settle it self back on to the ground.

I've just had a very quick practice in the P-40 and what a difference in the landing characteristics the patch has made! I bounced on landing but instead of bouncing right back up into the air like I had jumped on trampoline or something, it was a gentle, controllable bounce and she settled back on the runway very smoothly!
Taxiing seemed to be a lot easier too and I noticed they've put in the 7° 1st stage steering the P-40 tailwheel had.
