The article has the pictures of the two maps mislabeled.

 

Now it's fixed.

Kinda surprised this is being pushed out in the middle of a month long event. If patch bugs inhibit player's ability to complete it that would be unfortunate.

Holy moly there's a lot going on here. I'm not sure if the "reduced... impact of extending flaps" means no net effect, and just more maneuverable without flaps (please don't be a nerf to my Beaufighter :sad:). I hope somebody writes a concise guide to how strategy is now changed, if I have to figure that stuff out on my own it will take a loooooong time. Also - "increased dispersion in a dive"? I don't feel like that was necessary...

I think the patch is actually necessary for people who complete the event to receive their plane. The addition of the Meteor is listed in the notes.


There are no bombers in the game.

And download time if it's a big one. But there's always a mission or something going on, they can't put it off forever.

Any idea on the size of the download? I'm on limited portable internet right now, depending on the size I might have to take a break on the month long mission till I get back to High Speed net.

 

I dont think it will leave me with enough time to complete the last mission

Only Wging would think it's a good ideal to change the game up while everyone is trying to complete this months missions.

Necessary? Likely not. More accurate? Most certainly. Especially on large calibre shells. They are aerodynamic, but not THAT much. Wind resistance, aircraft speed, gravity, muzzle velocity all have their effect. In an extreme dive(say more than 60 degrees, as an example), the wind vortices at the muzzle openings WOULD cause a bit more dispersion, plus wing shake as you pass optimum speed(for wing mounted weapons), buffeting of the aircraft, etc...

 

Now, I do not want any more dispersion. It is already hard enough to hit you squirrely bastards. But I can see where they are going with this. And frankly, with all the GOOD stuff coming in, I am willing to overlook this one thing.

Are you 100% sure? Original download was only 3GB for SD if I can remember right.

 

Where did you get this info from? Can you post a link?

Can't wait. Hopefully it does not break the game and prevent players from completing the month long mission!

I would be fine with that. I guess we could use a clearer definition on what constitutes a "dive" for the purpose of this rule. Is it just pointing your nose down? Pointed down and exceeding a certain speed?

a sharper, better polished landscape that strongly resembles the postcard view of actual national parks such as Yosemite aka Yosemite

 

lol, made me laugh.


Well, I guess I'm really just like a finger puppet of WG. Not a whole hand puppet though.

Wow.  I logged onto the CT server and played 1.5 a week or so ago.  I thought it had a long way to go before release.  It was stiff and not very responsive, even taking lag into consideration.  Also images, planes and controls were not anywhere near what I've become used to.  Sure hope they have worked the bugs out and will maintain the high level of play that we all have become accustomed to.  I guess that time will tell.

It seems to take me 1 or 2 days to do an update. This clearly impacts the ability to complete the next weeks mission. I believe I can do it but this creates a very clear obstacle seeing that week ends are ahrd enough to get any time at all. I've been keenly awaiting 1.5 but this is a clear downer in timing.
