Game version 3.008 discussion: Damage model update, fixes and improvements

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

We spent the two weeks since the previous release on intensive work on important aspects of the project. In the not-too-distant future, we'll be adding some huge new features for our Early Access titles, so we've decided to take some time and concentrate on several smaller, but important and long-awaited improvements and create this update.

Great additions, I`m very interested in these "huge" new features to the engine.  I wonder is ASW 2.0 in the wings for us rift users, always chasing the fps or ways of improving the experience.

good news, long overdue.

 

The "engine limits" discussions are getting out of control. 👍

I don't think Han was quoted correctly, my friend - with the engine he might be thinking of the game engine?

Wow a pleasant surprise thank you!

I look forward to checking out even more performance improvements in Kuban!

No that's not right to say. All airplanes will see changed due to hit angles being considered and other adjustments.. You should read more closely. We continue to improve everything within our product.

We'll see for 109 and Pe-2 DM but for sure, looking to the RAF pilots we can say that IL2 pilots are the best ever seen in a flight sim. Insane, what a job guys!

 

Abosolutely stunning.

@Han is there a possibility that you could explain the following few changes and how it affects the game? they seem a little cryptic to me:

 

15. An overdone HE explosion effect on the primary structure of an aircraft has been reduced.

 

What is an overdone HE explosion effect? does it mean less HE structural damage in general?

 

16. Damage calculations of the airframe take a hit angle into account;

 

Can you elaborate on that a little further? seems like a huge change. If it wasn't in the game before, it could explain a lot of things.

 

17. Damage from direct hits and explosions on the skin and control rods has been tuned;

 

Same thing, could you elaborate a bit more?

 

21. Aircraft primary structure won't erroneously receive double damage in case of hits on the internal components like fuel tanks, engine, radiators, etc.);

 

How does this change affect HE/AP ammunition? 

 

23. Armor of the internal components corrected whenever it was wrong;

 

Is there a list of the corrected components or which aircraft are affected by this?

 

 

Many thanks in advance!

Hi Jason

 

That is my opinion and I think I m not alone with my opinion...

 

Nice that it wil be fixed!

 

I continue to fly with my good old paperplane....

Why this list then?

 

13. P-47D-28, Yak-7b and Spitfire Mk.IXe wings made less fragile when damaged;

 

And to which direction other planes are tuned? More fragile direction or?

I guess this means the graphical effect of the explosion. While it was big IRL, it was a bit too big in game?

HE shells have provided too much damage for longerons before, it was overdone.

You have more chance to hit longeron when AP shell hit along airfoil chord, and much less when perpendicular.

Control rods damage by HE hits now less abstract and depends on number of hitting fragments of explosive fragmentation.

It was too much damage to longerons in case of hit near ammo boxes, radiators, tanks and so on.

It is too long to quote. Many planes many items.

Yesterday I took a flip in the almost new Sopwith Camel & noticed that when I fired the twin Vickers that the empty shells didn’t appear to be ejected from the shell chute on the port side of the aircraft where they would be seen, when viewing from the cockpit. I’m not sure if this effect is seen on the other three WW-1 Flying Circus aircraft. Have I just missed this or is it on a list to be added later?

Thanks!

This is a big and welcome change IMO. This should increase the realism of structural wing damage a lot. I think we will see less wing-off scenarios on all planes, not just those that have had the wings strengthened.

Actually all the updates to the damage model look great.

The AI stuff is good to see too! I appreciate the small improvements here and there. The AI experience has, for me, improved in a small but noticeable way since I started playing not too long ago.

Thanks for all your hard work! Pass along our congratulations to the rest of your hardworking team.

Nice that Ap now is going to make less damage if not hitting the longeron. Lets see next days how the changes work. I am looking foward to see if the tail on the 109 is a little more stronger. 

Thanks for the work

Too me it reads like AP will be even better compared the HE now.

It depends.

Before the wings were like hitboxes and no matter where the shells went they ripp of your wing. Now unless they hit the spar Ap is going to be way more useless. 

He is going to lose power as well.

The HE nerf seems a bit odd to me.

I always thought HE was the primary/best ammunition to down aircraft. Now in game AP was already better then HE to shoot down aircraft before the update (easily replicable by taking La5 and switching between AP and HE only). And now HE was made even weaker? Or am I missing something here?

We shall have to run all our tests again :)   I think it means that AP shots from behind will still be effective but if you are making a hit on the planform of a wing the AP shot will usually "go straight through" with reduced damage.

Yep, maybe 109 is made with a thinner paper ;)
