Hi, 

 

After the new update, something is wrong with the Perth smoke, you get spotted every 9 seconds now no matter what speed you do now.

 

please fix

Moving too fast?

 

Not really, noticed that too when moving at 8kn. Sometimes you get spotted without rhyme or reason.

The new smoke nerf is still not live and it will be a variant of the first one, so it should not effect Perth and her marathon generator.

(Which is why I bought her. :cap_haloween:)

New smoke mechanics have been included in 0.6.9 but haven't been fully activated (i think) Perth has a Smoke Penalty value of 0.42 if you fire main guns (secondaries have a value of 0.0001)

 

After a very quick test in the training room.

 

1. Ships are spotted for a few seconds longer after going in smoke, esp form planes

2. Perth occasionally gets spotted when firing guns in smoke.

 

Edit.

A full broadside makes you spotted for ~1 second. As a work around only shoot 1-3 turret salvos.

dunno, seems ok to me, but i hold the mouse to fire one turret after the other, rather than full salvo...

It's all under the hood changes that 'hasn't been turned on', all the new smoke penalty values can be seen at https://gamemodels3d.com/games/worldofwarships/vehicles/destroyer

For most the mechanics should be no different from 0.6.7 but Perth is unique and won't have have been fully tested.

i just tried it's fine...

 

You can replicate the bug in the training room. Make sure your plane spotted to remove any new smoke blob blocking LOS to a ship.

 

I'm undetected and fire a full salvo. (enemy ship and planes are near enough to spot me)

I get detected by both ship and planes in my smoke.

The new blob blocks LOS to ship but I'm still plane detected.

Causing me to be ship spotted too.

Finally undetected after 5 seconds.

Those changes are from supertest. Like you said, not activated. 

Perth only has a long lasting generator and short lasting smoke. I don't see where it uses a different mechanic.

0.6.9 added a new smoke engine with a truck load of code. It's been configured to act like 0.6.8 but there's a few differences, not just for Perth.

Thats quite useless, I reported several bugs from the previous version (mostly carrier related) which in this version are still happening. They don't read that section.

brave statement

if you think something is bug doesnt necessary mean it is one actually

nevertheless more feedback in bug report section would be nice

Helloes, quickly checked:

  • The devs are already working on solution and will deploy it when ready and tested.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience :fish_boom:
