We continue to talk about the improvements in the game's appearance that will be brought by the updated graphics engine ‘Dagor Engine 6.0’ in the next major update “New Power” for War Thunder.
We recently showed new skies and visual improvements for War Thunder aircraft. Today we continue to expand on how the new graphics engine in War Thunder will change the look of the game.
Hit effects on armoured vehicles
War Thunder: New Power has improved the appearance and “physics” of hits on ground vehicles. Physically correct armour scars appear on ground vehicles in places where shells hit, now their shape depends on the angle of the shell's collision with the vehicle's armour. In some cases, the projectile can even get stuck in the armour! If armour is penetrated, holes of different diameters appear on the armour, depending on the calibre of the projectile. If a vehicle is on fire, you can see the flame through any holes.
