Full Sim Mode Vid

Post by Nefaro on Wed Jan 21, 2015 6:06 pm

I did have one match recorded for the Full Sim event. I suspect we'll see this mode with no map updates & such replace the old Sim mode since nearly everyone enjoyed it.




I drove a Tiger out on this one, but over the long run I think I did better in the JgPz IV with the long 75mm/70 gun (and better frontal armor over the regular JgPz IV).

I don't have any cool tanks like that. I've not been playing long enough.

It's pretty cool, they plane on adding ship combat too. One day it will be some massive map with planes flying in off carriers, over islands, with tanks battling as bombs and arty rains down on them.

The 'Sim Mode' joystick settings were troublesome for me to adjust properly when I tried.  There are some extra sliders and such in them that are rather confusing and I couldn't quite get the sensitivity as low as I wanted in one axis IIRC.  So be aware, it will take some trial & error to get yours to where you want it.  Fortunately there is a test flight option for any aircraft you own, or ones you can possibly purchase with in-game money, so you can tool around an open sky and adjust your control settings at the same time.

I gave up tweaking the stick settings last time I tried, especially since the wait times for Sim Mode were pretty damn long.  But if these changes to Sim Mode tanks goes in, there will likely be more people in the queues.  Sim Mode tanks is much easier than the aircraft anyway, so there are more people playing it these days than there used to be.  


I also have a vid of the current Sim Mode in my JgPz 4 from yesterday.  I'll get it converted and posted up overnight so you can see the little differences.  It's still fun.

the competitor to war thunder.. the world of... has first naval footage out:

the mechanics look a bit dodgy.. but overall if warthunder pulls a balanced sim mode with ships and tanks and planes it might get a whoping whole lot more attractive.

World of Warships looks like fun. I'm not expecting a sim from them, of course, but for an action-y shooter style thing it could be enjoyable.

Hopefully they don't turn carriers into the insta-kill orbital lasers that they f'd up their tank game with (i.e. the artillery mechanics).

frankly, without knowing much more then it is a constant short range slugfest.. I think carriers are sort of pointless.. because wouldn´t your job be constantly running away?!?
