Good evening,

I'm slowly working my way through the flight tutorials - having fun as I go.

Can someone help me understand what all the lines mean. I think some of them are the sensor limits (I think these are in white). Not sure what the red ones are, nor the yellow ones.

Thanks!

Under the "Map Settings" menu, you have the oportunity to turn on and off the ranges for several types of weapons and sensors (Active sensors, like radar or sonar. Passive sensors, like FLIR or TV cameras, don't show a range circle.). I could write up which colour corresponds to what thing, but the best thing is for you to play around with your setting, turning options on and off, and see what's what.

Two things to add:

- The solid lines are your side's active weapons/sensors max ranges (and in the case of sensors, the available arcs), while the dashed lines are other units' potential weapons/sensor max ranges/arcs.

- Except for sonars/MAD, passive sensor ranges are not displayed.

Also: If you are using the Steam version, please disable the Steam overlays and DirectWrite for this game.

Dimitris: I never of heard of those two things. What does disabling them actually do? How do we find them? Thanks.

Steam Overlay: Right-Click on Command in the Steam client, select Properties and disable 'Enable the Steam Overlay while in-game.

As for DirectWrite, this seems to be only for the Steam Client as a whole, not per game. Disable Settings->Interface->Enable DirectWrite...

Mike I also recommend experimenting with the setting in the highlighted box. I vary these often when I need more info or sometimes to remove clutter.
