The second star of the day is the late Great War German monoplane Fokker D.VIII

Thank you - an unexpected gift! Crash from start of programme once again... 😞

 

EDIT - if you use EVGA performance software, do not use the OSD option. This is what caused my crashes. Now --- back to the air!!!

Awesome!

 

Can we get clarification on the density changes for weapons?

 

What would we notice in game?

Probably it won't be noticeable at usual firing distances, it's a thing for heavy guns like Todt battery and naval ones firing far away, they would be severely handicapped without accounting for more sparse air at the height of their firing arcs.

And in hi-altitude combat bullets and shells will loose speed not so fast as usual.

I'm curious to what changed for audio. Any new plane engine noises? Or just for the new vehicles and aircraft? I didn't see anything specific listed in the notes. Well done can't wait to get home and fly! :)
