Game mechanics

Fire control system mechanics have been added to Naval battles. It is the new system for aiming, target acquisition and aiming correction. Fire control system consists of several modules, which can be found on larger ships in different combinations:

Fire control room - usually located within a ship’s hull under the bow superstructure deep below the waterline, or in the superstructure itself. Specific ships may have up to two fire control rooms. This module is responsible for fire solution calculations based on data received from rangefinders and fire directors to correct aiming at acquired targets. If a ship lacks a fire control room, but has rangefinders or director control towers, fire solution calculations are made by the bridge.

Rangefinders - are located on different levels of the superstructure and in main calibre turrets. Rangefinders measure distance to an enemy ship.

Director Control Tower (DCT) - located in the superstructure top and sides in special towers. The DCT is responsible for measuring the target's distance, bearing and speed.

When the system is operating, all modules are intact, (particularly including the fire control room), a player has to lock on target, wait for the calculation to complete and fire a ranging shot. After that, the lead marker appears on the water surface in AB, or in RB, a convergence marker in binoculars

Turret markers have been reworked for naval battles. Status of each turret is pinned at the screen’s bottom.

Turret is broken - red circle.


Turret is in the dead zone - grey circle.


Turret is ready to fire - green circle.


Overheat is in process - red filler inside the circle indicator.


Reload is in process - green filler inside the circle indicator.


Turret is aiming - the circle is dimmed.


A projectile drop marker has been added to the ship's binoculars. This marker shows up-to-date information about the averaged place of shells falling both horizontally and in range.

Visual effects of fires of different types have been reworked for coastal and bluewater fleets.


Splash effects have been added for ship hulls collision with waves.


Assets disappear when moving out from the player now equal for all (not depending on graphics settings).



Sound

The sounds of all machine guns and automatic cannons of ground vehicles, ships and aircraft have been reworked. The principle of formation of the sounds of rapid-fire guns have been changed in order to more adequately and realistically sound the high rate of fire.


The engine sounds of the ground vehicles have been reworked so that the engine RPM better reflects the load falling on it. The RPM changes more noticeably when driving uphill, shifting gears, slipping, etc. Also the power in the area of low frequencies has been added.


Maximum volume of the engine of the player's vehicle has been increased.


Game volume settings have been reseted with the update release to the values at which the game mix has been configured.


Volumes of sounds of material under tracks and wheels of ground vehicles are now independent of volume of the player's engine.


All sounds of surfaces under tracks and wheels of player's ground vehicles have been reworked. Also new types of surfaces have been added. Now there is water, earth, sand, snow, concrete (asphalt, paving stones), liquid mud, and ice (frozen ponds).


Aircraft of the Phantom type now have authentic engine sounds.
