New features & improvements:

* Simulation Performance. Major portions of the core execution pipeline have been re-architected to optimize performance and scalability. The boost is most noticeable on "heavy" scenarios (not just in terms of number of units but also activity, e.g. numerous concurrent pathfinding processes, everybody jamming and scanning everybody etc.). Stability is also improved.

* Air Refueling fixes. You asked for smarter and more dependable refueling AI & mechanics, and we listened.
The list of tweaks & improvements is too long to list here, but three major changes stand out:
a) Crews are now context-aware in their logic of picking the most suitable tanker. Depending on what the aircraft is supposed to be doing (enroute to mission, returning, free-roaming, on patrol, on support circuit etc.) the optimal choice is often significantly different.
b) Tankers are now smart enough to avoid overbooking (and thus getting completely drained). They now reject refuelling requests that they estimate they will not be able to service.
c) Aircraft returning from a mission (e.g. strikers on the RTB leg) will opt to bypass available tankers and head straight for their home bases if possible. This lightens the load on available tanker assets and eliminates the need to manually change the "use refuel" doctrine mid-mission. If they do need to refuel on the return leg they do as before.

* NCTR (Non-Cooperative Target Recognition) for select radar systems has been added, enabling active type/class-identification of air targets. See here for introduction to the technology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radar_MASINT#Non-Cooperative_Target_Recognition

NCTR as modelled in Command is broken into two techniques:
* JEM: Jet engine modulation (aka fan blade counting). This is simpler to process and more widespread but works only within a frontal arc of 15 degress offset from the target's front (so that the fan blades are visible to the radar).
* NBILST: Narrow-beam Interleaved Search & Track (aka synthetic pseudo-imaging). This is far more demanding computationally and is possible only with phased-array radars, but can work regardless of target aspect.
Interestingly enough, even some quite old radar systems (like Square Pair on SA-5 batteries) have an NCTR ability. However, because of its manual/semi-automated nature (the operator literally looks on raw radar return modulation data on an oscilloscope) the classification time varies highly with operator proficiency. In modern systems the highly automated nature of the process (point the radar at the target and wait) means that crew skill is irrelevant.
When a target is classified using NCTR a relevant message is added to the message log.

* BVR cranking: Fighters launching BVR missiles now regularly attempt to "crank" (turn to the side while still tracking/painting as necessary, and throttle back) once they have taken all their shots. The purpose of the manouver is to reduce the rate of approach with the enemy and thus delay enemy countershots as much as possible.

* Damage repair rates (for sub-systems) have been increased and messages are now provided when a subsystem is repaired for a heavier to a lighter state of damage or fully restored.

When examining subsystems damage on a unit (Damage Control window), the different degrees of subsystem damage (light, medium, heavy) are represented by different colors (yellow, orange and orange-red). Destroyed systems retain the red color.

* Numerous fixes and tweaks to damage modelling including ARM impacts, cluster munitions, proximity blast damage, depth charge damage & duds etc.

* Includes the v418 versions of the DB3000 & CWDB databases with numerous fixes and additions.

The list of fixes is kind of wonky looking. It sticks way out of the text box down to the bottom of the page.

btw, is there a way to see just waht has changed since beta 568?

Not much really. The most important is a tweak for ARMs that makes it much more likely that if they impact, in addition to general applied damage, they will specifically focus on the emitter they are homing on.

While installing, please disable temporarily your security programs. If, after doing that, the issue still persists, then please install the update in Windows Safe Mode.

Thanks for the updates; no issues with the installation.

Noted that the missing SSN-578 Skate Class never made it into the updated CWDB though.

Missing Skates

Apologies for the nitpick, please keep up the great work.

While we're mentioning submarines, and also at the risk of being a nag, sorry, USS SEAWOLF, CONNECTICUT, JIMMY CARTER and HMS ASTUTE all have only 1 reactor, not 2.

Some sources for SEAWOLF class (1x S6W reactor)

For HMS ASTUTE (1 x PWR2 reactor)

*Fixed*

Installed it fine but will not run even with AV in game mode. Will try more later but too tired now...

Just says windows looking for solution and crashes - well closes the program as it is not in task manager anymore. Tried to start from game menu also same result. Hopefully my pc only.


quote:

Edit : it installed to new directory. Build 568 still works fine. Maybe that has something to do with it. I noticed a 'game of the year' edition folder option. hmm.


Edit: That was it, moved new install files to old folder and works fine. Just a quick install and not paying attention to the install folder.

I think I need to do a fresh install of the game, I am still using the beta folder with all the stuff still in it.

Since it works maybe I shouldnt and should just keep going as I bet I am the only dummy to have done that. It goes to show how good the programmers are, as I have not had any issues.

Reminds me of the poon days, I could find errors that no one ever thought of cause nobody would think of doing that!

Hi! Great work, as always!
Any chance you could clarify how the databases relate to the versions on Warfaresims? I just want to make sure I have the latest and "best". :-P

I am truly sorry if this is explained anywhere and I missed it.

Think all that is on that download page is the additional (optional) images and descriptions for the database that the community has come up with. May be wrong, but don't believe those are in the game unless you download and add them.
The fixes and additions referred to in Sunburns post are the platform adds/changes since previous versions.

Hi,

I tried to update from 1.04 to 1.05 but I've got this message once and again:

"Error:
Unable to download file.
An error occurred while tying to open an ftp file."

I run CMANO on XP in Parrallels on Mac.
Firewall disabled and no antivirus.

Any advice?

Thanks.

-------

Fixed.
I found the link to download and upgraded.
True update client keeps on failing.

After I installed the 1.05 patch, I cannot even get the launch display to appear. I get an error stating "failed to extract file to memory".

What can I do? Any help will be very much appreciated.
