In this digest we would like to tell you about our continuing work on improvements and fixes in the game. You can find information about all updates that have been released in War Thunder in the website special section.
This time the list of improvements is smaller than usual: we’re very busy preparing the upcoming major update!
Clearer achievement progress
Many achievements require hard work that can take several days or even weeks. Wouldn’t it be great if you could see how much you’ve done in a productive gaming session? Or in a week?
That’s why we’ve implemented a new checkpoint feature. When you press the “Remember current progress” button on an achievement in the “featured achievements” menu, the game saves date, time, and current progress of the selected achievement. And in the future if you want to check how close you got to completing the task, the game will show how many progress points you’ve received since setting up the checkpoint. It sure is great to see the fruits of your labour, isn’t it?
Our improvements aren’t limited to just achievements! After all, there are also Battle Pass Challenges and Battle Tasks. We added a “Personal tasks” menu to the game that allows you to check your progress in various tasks and achievements up until the start of the mission mid-battle!
You can find the “Personal tasks” button at the bottom of the respawn window, next to the “Orders” and “To battle!” buttons. Use it well!
We found the root of the problem that caused the players’ vehicle presets to overwrite each other — and fixed it. It happened, for example, when the player was using different PCs: the preset chosen on one device overwrote the preset that was active on the other.
The issue also manifested on the PlayStation consoles, but in a different way. Upon closing the game client, there was a chance that the vehicle preset chosen by the player could save itself in the final slot, destroying the preset that was already there.
That’s Not All
You’ll find the full list of improvements in the separate changelog — there are many interesting things there. Night vision won’t get enabled on vehicles that don’t have it, and console versions of the game no longer freeze in the “Maginot Line” location.
