When I touched down on the deck, the life rails lowered into life nets. Which was great, but why didn’t they do so before I landed? Do you have to do the whole “Inbound” and “Request Landing” thing? Regardless, it is cool.
“Open the Hangar Doors HAL. I’m sorry Dave, I can’t do that now.”
The hanger doors have always been weird. I haven’t known them to open on parking. Hell, a good number of times you spawn in - they fail to open to let you out!
The smoke markers are currently quite dramatic, yes. A handful of them and you can make a screen as opaque as a snowy mountainside and would be equally damaging to performance as the resulting avalanche is to anything in it’s path.
The VR & helicopter stuff, unfortunately I cannot speak too.
I’ve seen the sinking armored vehicles before. I’ve also seen various vehicles run through each other. This is especially annoying when civilian road traffic plows through your carefully created military convoy or a train passes through another train that you were able to stop by taking out the engine.
Yes, you can disable civilian traffic but sometimes you want to have that traffic as “atmosphere”… i.e. “it was just a normal Tuesday when the enemy struck.”
This is afterburner employment. An unfortunate bug that has been lingering about for years but luckily is not very impactful. My guess is it’s about it’s rather unique afterburner design with its emergency power stage.
