War Thunder: Update 2.17.0.80

War Thunder: Update 2.17.0.80

In this section, we talk more about the work on improvements and fixes in the game. You can find information about all updates coming to War Thunder in a special section.

Like clockwork

War Thunder: Update 2.17.0.80

We strive to ensure that the game runs as smoothly as possible – without a hitch. However, on some PC configurations, after several battles, the picture began to freeze, despite the fact that the frame rate remained normal.

We have been looking for the causes of this problem since we received reports from you about it, but this mistake turned out to be not easy: it took a lot of time to find its root, and after that – to deal with it. But we did it! Stutters are a thing of the past: the game should now run smoothly and without delay.

Turned down the fire

War Thunder: Update 2.17.0.80

Actually, fire is good, especially if the game is about shots and explosions, but it should be in moderation. It was on the anti-aircraft machine guns of some tanks that this rule failed, as a result of which the flashes of the shot simply began to block the view when firing through the anti-aircraft sight.

And it was a mistake. We removed flashes and left tracers on a lot of vehicles with anti-aircraft machine guns and autocannons.

That’s better.

Fixed telethermal imaging systems

War Thunder: Update 2.17.0.80

This is not about thermal imagers, but about a more specific system.

Some SPAAGs are equipped with an acquisition and tracking mechanism that is guided by the heat signature of an aerial target. Aviation, in turn, can shoot decoys, releasing hot decoys. But some aircraft and helicopters have options for decoys in the form of chaff – thin strips of metallized foil designed to deceive a completely different type of guidance and tracking systems.

It was on dipole reflectors that telethermal imaging systems were distracted – which is completely wrong.

Made scientifically. Now only enemy decoys can interfere with you.

Repaired ballistic computer

War Thunder: Update 2.17.0.80

The ballistic calculator helps the pilot to display the predicted location of the impact of projectiles, for example, for air guns. Due to a bug, the calculator marker was displayed behind the aircraft. The bug has been fixed, now the marker works correctly.

By the way, for aircraft with a variety of forward-facing cannons and machine guns, pilots often use the “Vertical Aiming” option, which changes the sighting for some weapons and allows you to fire shells of various weights and calibers at a specified distance for effective fire at one point. Now the marker of the ballistic calculator indicates the place of impact of shells more accurately even with vertical aiming turned on.

Even more improvements
We continue to work on all aspects of War Thunder. Once again, a large list of improvements to the sound picture of the battle – a lot of fixes and improvements. We worked on the convenience of logging into War Thunder on consoles and, as usual, made dozens of adjustments to gaming equipment. You will find a full list of improvements in a separate patch note – there is a lot of interesting things there!
