Hi again, 

 

Thanks to @Gitaristing , @Finxo_O and a twitch clip from @malimoo we found a , in my opinion, critical bug that needs to get fixed ASAP. 

The issue here is that the spotter plane doesn't follow the ship as it did in the past but stays at the position you started it. This results in a far extended view range for you ship, ALSO IN CYCLONE!!

 

 

Please see data below for reference: 

 

This is the clip that made us go "waiiiit, this can't be right!"

So we just ran some tests ourselves and the results where quite shocking to me: 

 

Max range test from @Gitaristing , no cyclone

Range test from me without and with cyclone (mountain range with CB rules, so 12km cyclone)

I also streamed it and will attach the replay files: 

 

From 6:00 Minutes 

 

and from 7:00 minutes 

 

 

Please give this priority as it has some heavy Influence on CB, expecially on cyclone maps and ppl WILL use it.

Simply not important enough. Doesn't generate cash.

Sorry for the delay guys, we've had a busy few days.

 

Let me just jump in and clarify: The fact that the plane stays in one place when being launched is indeed a bug, the fact that the plane extends your view range during a cyclone is not a bug and working as intended.
