215
Hello friends,

This week was a hard one - we had to let you play during the weekend without problems, so we released another update that continued the work started in 3.010. The majority of the changes are in the GUI and are required for the new Marschal multiplayer mode that is coming this Spring and will concentrate on the interaction with the map. Other important improvements were made for tank weapons and damage calcualtions. We hope that now the basic damage model is adequate and we'll start working on more particular tasks in the tank systems and combat damage department next week.

This week we finished the map of the Southern part of the Kursk salient while two next tanks, M4A2 and PzKpfw III Ausf.M, will follow soon. The new tanks and the map will be released into Tank Crew Early Access after beta testing. Today we can show you the first in-game screenshots of them taken near Prokhorovka:

As much as I would like to get the tanks I am a bit concerned that I only have 20Gb left on my SSD. Would like to know how much Bodeplate, FC and the tanks are likely to chew up.

 

I have Bodenplate and FC ordered but am reluctant to sign up for tanks fore the aforesaid reason.

You guys f**king rock!!!! The best :)

 

I just was wondering if it would be feasible to have skins with battle style stuff such as sandbags, pieces of track, tools, etc

I don`t think the size of the game installation is affected of what you buy or not. It`s all there anyway, you just have to buy it to use it.

For me it is 17gigs total [1C install on SSD w/o user skins] for all modules and planes released by them so far. We still will get 3 Maps on top of that one for each FC, TC and BoBP and the not yet released planes and tanks, so my personal guess is we will end up somewhere between 20-25 gigs total.

 

By comparision my steam install [other harddrive] with tons of skins has 33gigs total.

I'm really looking forward to the iconic Sherman and getting my hands on that .50cal... and maybe giving her a new paintjob or 3.

 

Good job devs - she's a beauty :salute:

I tell myself that I'm probably not going to get Flying Circus, but then I see screen shots. I tell myself that I'm not getting Tank Crew, because I get enough of that with War Thunder. Then I see the screenshots. Are the Russians getting the M5, light tank, too?

Don't worry too much about that - I've got all the modules, some scripted campaigns and lots of skins - and the toll is 26.2 GB in total at the moment.

Any word about how the new high detail maps will affect performance?

 

I'm really looking forward to the new maps. :cool:

The only map with more detailed mesh than usual is TC map. Should not be a problem because it is smaller than the others.

Really like that Sherman and can't wait to see it in-game.

 

Will there be a chance of seeing modifications like logs or armored plates welded onto the sides? The M4A2 has two very weak spots to the front and I'm curious if we can get some armored plating as a modification.

Were those used by the Russkies?

Not 100% sure about the front plates but I know they used armored plates on the sides and turret.
