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)

  • Shouldn't the store page get an update too? June 24, 2017

  • Onyx Watch own Missouri? June 24, 2017
    -Missouri is a state in the United States of America- I just thought of this. Missouri's abbreviation is MO. MO filpped upside down is OW. OW is, of course, is the abbreviation of the Onyx Watch. So of course that can lead us to the conclusion that the Onyx Watch owns Missouri. That also means […]
