Changes from previous release

  • Made an adjustment to the autotakeoff function to avoid some planes getting prop strikes on takeoff.
  • Some guns on vehicles were still not getting repaired with vehicle resupplies.
  • Adjusted the prop position on the SBD, B5N, Spit V, and Seafire.
  • Autotakeoff mode for the F4U-1D, F4U-1C, and F4U-4 now uses flaps. These are now the only planes to do so.
