Changes from previous release

  • Fixed a bug that caused additional damage to airplanes when a specific weapon hardpoint was damaged. This could manifest itself in the loss of flight controls, phantom fires and other non-normal damage events.
  • Fixed a texture problem that caused certain video cards to not correctly display the gauge faces on WW1 planes.
  • Fixed a bug that caused wing damage effects on the lead bomber to also be present in drones.
  • Engine cutouts from negative G cutout or selecting through an empty fuel tank no longer requires a manual start.
  • Smoke, leaks, and fire on wings now correctly disappear again when the wing is destroyed.
  • Fixed an alpha issue on some WW1 gunsights.
  • Startup prop animation now spins up correctly instead of disappearing too soon if the engine had already been started and shutdown once before.
  • Fixed a couple minor issues with offline drone vehicles.
  • Updated WW1 engine and start sound. Thanks again to AKDogg!
