This update will definitely peak your interest, as it introduces further improvements to the new sound systems, some redesigns in terms of the minimap for some maps, and the replacing of the Lorraine 40 t with a new tank: the Bat.-Chatillon 25 t AP. Here’s a handy summary of the update’s highlights:
Introduction of ActionScript 3
We are moving to Action Script 3. This is good for the game because it will open up more ways for user interface performance optimization in the future releases, as well as make the workflow for mod creators consistent. However, in the short term, this change can have an impact on the modding community, as the creators will need to update their mods to work with Action Script 3. We have worked with the modmakers to check compatibility for the biggest and most popular mods and have been able to verify 9.15.1 compatibility with a number of them.
The new system for sounds, that was introduced with Update 9.14, has been supplemented with additional sounds, in order to improve the ambiance and the immersion, and in order to provide more detailed acoustic information about the battle to the player.
New Minimap Prototypes
With this version, certain maps will feature a new minimap design that is aimed at improving the player’s ability to assess and process battlefield information. Based on player feedback, these new minimap prototypes may be improved and expanded to other maps with future game updates.
Replacement of the Lorraine 40 t with the Bat.-Chatillon 25 t AP
The current Tier IX French medium tank in the autoloader line will be replaced by another vehicle, whose characteristics make it a more natural progression link in the respective tech chain.
Personal Reserves Available for Purchase In-Game
Personal Reserves can now be purchased with gold in their management menu in-game.
More Information about the feature will be provided soon.
