Storm of War Server Update

Mission Type

   All old rotation missions have been retired and the only mission active will be the Persistent mission (which will be renamed at some point)


Campaign Interface/Web UI

   CHANGED - RDF and Freya Web UI updating from server, not reliant on data copy. Removes reliance on cron job to run and increases stability.
   CHANGED - RADAR page on website is now active again for testing purposes mainly.
   CHANGED - public missions page is retired and replaced by a "what is SoW and how does it work?" page
   NEW - Pipsqueak display


Server code

   CHANGED - complete rewrite of the AI raid generator code to be more modular and class based. Easier to add in new types of AI activity.


Recon

   CHANGED - Recon Photo's increased to 4
   FIXED - Damage to airfields done in current mission will now show in Recon photo's taken subsequent to attack.
   FIXED - AI Recon units are now checked out when spawned, meaning they're a finite resource.
   FIXED - AI Recon mission being created with unavailable assets no longer errors.
   FIXED - Rogue bug that meant that if an airfield was bombed and a static object was destroyed, the wrong damage percentage might be displayed in any recon.


Objectives

   NEW - Additional target will be generated after Current active target is attacked.
   CHANGED - Selected targets are only good for the mission that runs next. Prevents one target being active permanently.


Airfields

   NEW - Consequences for airfield destruction are now live. Loss of spawn point. Airfields that are knocked out lose 50% of any aircraft in stock at the base at that time.


Aircraft Numbers

   NEW - Aircraft damage is now live. Damaged aircraft no longer returned to pool instantly.
   NEW - Damaged aircraft landed at a base which is not yours will not be instantly available to respawn. There will be a 3hr time penalty added onto the repair time, but the airframe will be automatically added back to your home base stock once this time has expired.
   FIXED - Available aircraft in game not matching the available aircraft in Campaign Interface. (Due to replacement aircraft only updating to the database, not to the airfield class.)
   CHANGED - Spitfire 1a renamed to remove the "(100Octane)" designation.


Stats

   NEW - Mission by Mission Summary
   NEW - Mission Summary/Detail


Game Mechanics

   NEW - TAB 4 Menu now includes ability to query what the current target(s) are.
   CHANGED - Bomb craters spawned on damaged airfields are no longer random after initial appearance. Repairs will remove oldest craters first.
   ADDED - Events system to load by time. Enables timing of AI Raids, Recon, Resupply & Messages & Base Transfers.
   ADDED - AI Raids Spawning broadcast a message to advise players. They still need to then use the Friendly bomber finder to see the raid.
   ADDED - Pipsqueak now live.

So the Persistent mission is now up 24/7 (not counting the mission change every few hours) - which should make bombing and recon more important. Smile

Crikey, if they knock out our airfield we lose our 50% precious well maintained kites! and we'll be homeless....I think we should invest in more AA guns. Very Happy

Also 3 hr wait for damaged planes to return to stock if landed at a different airfield. pale

And our golf clubs will be destroyed, and we'll have to go to that old flying club with the nasty little shack full of dead flies!
