Take-off plane and fog of war

Post by terminator » Sat Sep 02, 2017 1:14 pm

During the AI turn in the fog of war, as a plane takes off from an hangar, the symbol of the plane becomes visible during a fraction of a second then disappears.
Impossible to take a screenshot (It is as well difficult to make a screenshot as photograph an UFO :wink: )

Test with my scenario (bêta). There are 2 hangars :

- near Korinthe

It is necessary to center on one of the hangars before the beginning of the turn of the AI :!: .

Yes, I have noticed this too. It's a quick flash in the dark, if the enemy airfield is onscreen. (Frankly, I like it. It's like an advance warning system. But I am sure it could bother purists a bit.)

I know this is going to sound arbitrary, but I don't think this rises to the level of "bug." More like a "quirk" in game program functioning that is not going to merit much official attention.

I don't mean to dismiss your concern. I could be wrong about it receiving attention, of course. I always could be wrong. Regularly, in fact, depending upon whose opinion you ask. :wink:

Here, this is what it looks like:

You can see it about 33 seconds into this video. Look at the airfield to the northeast of Elefsina:

For me, it is a minor bug. This phenomenon does not respect strictly the principle of fog of war but it does not risk to change the course of the war.
I do not know of what think of it the other players ?

Noticed this bug as well, and in a naval battle it helped me to destroy an enemy carrier. There was a flash at the enemy carrier location (hidden by a fog of war).

I think it can influence naval battles, and should be got rid of.

Satisfied to see that I am not the only one whom it disturbs. :)
Has to note that it concerns as well the take-off as the landing of the plane.
