1.897

Loads of fixes and improvements- and quite a number of new features to keep you busy.

[Improvement] Missile laser retains aim direction more effectively
[Improvement] Shield projector has complex controller input for excess drive factor
[Improvement] Turrets are now back to being smoothly rotating like they used to be
[Improvement] Firing constraints for turrets have a bug fixed that was affecting azimuth when using elevation only constraints
[Improvement] turret traverse speed is now based on turret mass
[Imrovement] Explosions now limited in their ability to turn corners and get past armour
[Improvement] APS barrel traverse speed is slower for larger barrels
[Fix] Loading a shell directly into the firing piece now works as intended
[Fix] battery power will not be used to run generators to charge batteries- in the absense of any fuel
[Fix] Aerial AI less likely to lose altitude whilst moving to waypoint
[Change] Jet model replaced with a new one- and jet engine drag factor set to 0.25
[Improvement] Inline turbo provides cooling to cylinder if exiting directly from it
[Improvement] Standard turbo can be placed inline if you wish
[Improvement] Exhaust outputs are a source of heat for the attraction of IR missiles
[Improvement] Inline turbos which have a lot of exhaust passing through them are equivalent to a turbo that is run at a higher engine RPM
[Improvement] The turbo efficiency improvement curve now goes up to a value of 5- which results in 50% fuel usage. You can achieve this efficiency by running an engine at 100% with an inline turbo with 5 exhausts flowing through it
[Fix] Jets are now counted as hot objects again
[Fix] Qualification mode now counts advanced projectile system projectile damage correctly
[Fix] Fix with APS explosions managing to pass through a single layer of armour
[Fix] Bribing in localised resource mode fixed
[Fix] A fuel refinery when destroyed and repaired will still work now
[Improvement] hot object list added to the Constructable Info GUI (V)
[Improvement] Required accuracy before fire has a minimum of 0.5 instead of 2 now
[Fix] Out of play resource gathering now uses fuel- and needs fuel to run
[Fix] issues fixed when fuel engines run out of fuel

[Improvement] railguns reworked to use vehicle battery energy storage and be more configurable. New rail gun propellant component added as a shell module
[Improvement] Experience is given to all players in multiplayer
[Improvement] Intel images can be taken for all vehicles. Screenshots now properly encoded as jpeg
[Fix] Fixes to naval AI that broken when the PIDs we introduced and fix to submarine fleet move
[Fix] Fix to out of play oil to fuel conversion and fuel use for resource gathering (numbers were both too pessimistic)

  • MOST EFFECTIVE APS SHELLS August 16, 2018
    Currently doing some research on APS shells. I have previously used shells types such as HESH and HESH HEAT tandem warheads. I'm currently experimenting with a APHE. This is for a 402mm 6m autoloader gun. Any suggestions for a heavy hitting shell type?
  • [DevTest 2.2.2] Buoyancy/stability with >2000 block vehicles August 16, 2018
    Buoyancy of vehicles start going all over the place when the vehicle reaches 2000 blocks or above. Attached a blueprint with 1999 wooden blocks. Add one block of any type and observe change in buoyancy. Originally observed in other vehicles.   2000 block bug test.blueprint (Size: 103.91 KB / Downloads: 1)
  • Invasion of the Modern Earth! Custom AOTE with modern armored vehicles! August 16, 2018
    All Modern armored vehicles used in the campaign will be posted in a few days to the blueprint section for downloading!

  • [v2.2.1 dev] APS guns spawn with empty or half-filled magazines August 16, 2018
    I've reported this already in the dev thread, but I think it might help to put it here as well, particuarly considering I got another example. Maybe others can also speak about their experience, if they experience the same issue. Basically, if I spawn or load in ships, they appear with some guns full, some empty […]

  • Proposition Mock for the Build Menu August 15, 2018
    Years ago I designed a mockup for an improved UI. I had already written the post, even, but it seems that I forgot to actually post it. My apologies for the severe and unnecessary delay. Thankfully, I found it again in my SCREENSHOTS folder. This is in reponse to Nick's post here. I've decided to overhaul the build […]
  • How do I change the campaign difficulty? August 15, 2018

  • Some atempt to flying laser units. August 15, 2018
    So, after I started working on fliers (I almost have a full OOB now, from corvette to light cruiser), I also started to add some disco to my units. Here are the two that made it so far; I've been trying them during camapign (hard mode) and have been quite successful. They are designed to […]
