So my La-5 pilot is the only one I've got with Cruise Control skill, have used it several times since the latest patch & felt something was off, just realised its that Cruise Control hasn't been kicking in.

 

I'm guessing the sparkly version for Rudolf the xmas pilot broke the normal version.


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

The problem with the skills not displaying is known and is being processed at the moment. When investigating the issue the team found out that the problem is only in displaying of active skills. Thus, skills work but are not "lightened up". As soon as the fix is ready the team will release it.

“Lit up” the phrase you’re looking for?  

 

How much longer does your player base need to suffer the consistent incompetence of Persha before you find a good developer to put in charge of this property that will listen to the player base, not give the finger to vets, and bring back anniversaries?  Just a rough eta...say next October for the two year 2.crap anniversary?  Maybe spring 2019?  2021?

Special skills still work actually, however they don't light up at the moment. You're probably feeling placebo from not hearing the activation sound and noticing the icon light up since on planes I was using cruise control on I'd notice my speed jump up slightly.

 

The easiest way to test it would be to use Resilience or Fire-Extinguishing (and give it multiple attempts due to how finicky it is already) and see if you feel their effects, I did. 


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

I'm pretty sure that this whole fiasco is a 10 year test of patience

once you resolve yourself to that fact... it's fun

:amazed:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Maybe they're just waiting for Mongooser's 10 years of premium time to run out before they really put their noses to the grindstone?

 

This is good too:

That's part 1...trying to find part 2...  anyhow:

 

For a long time now, whether it's in the forums or at the various conventions, we keep hearing about a new "bomber escort" game mode. However, aside from affirming plans, we haven't seen much development on this front. Can you bring us up to speed on what's the actual state of this feature?

OG:A first version of the bomber escort game mode has been accomplished already way back in November 2012. However, we decided not to test or develop it further. This comes from the fact that we all came together and determined which features, in our opinion, were absolutely necessary for a game release, and which ones could be delayed for later. That means that we had to prioritize and put a couple of active developments on hold, which didn't make it into this important 'Release-Must-Have' category. As much as we all would love to see the bomber escort mission right now, we just decided that having helpful tutorials, for example, will be more important come release time.

In fact, as soon as the game is released, the same team that's working on the tutorials right now will switch over to game mode production and resume the development of this long-awaited feature. We didn't want to rush the production of this. In the end, it's supposed to feel like a completely new experience and not just a clone of the main mode. It's meant to feature unique gameplay, which naturally requires just a little more time.

MB:From an artistic point of view, you also have to consider that maps for such a mode would have to be different as well. The regular maps, which we have in the game right now, are not entirely fit for escort missions, in my opinion. Maybe we'll need to start thinking about stepping away from the rectangular map design and explore different shapes that would be more appropriate for the new gameplay. Sadly, so far, our BigWorld engine doesn't allow for any other formats than the rectangular ones we already have.

OG:Trust us when we say we're also very much looking forward to the introduction of new modes. We will keep working on it, regardless of the challenges we may face. If production of it has been slow, it's not for a lack of will, but because we need to prioritise our resources. If we had more programmers, things could go much quicker. We're in the same situation as the World of Tanks developers, by the way. They, too, just lack the manpower sometimes. We already have about 150 developers per project strictly programming the game right now. As we staff up, development of both games should speed up as well.

 

Hey blindfold, do these two still work at Persha?
