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.

Thanks to the dev team for your continued dedication!

Command shares the distinctions of (1) having one of the highest price points I've paid for a PC "game" and (2) being one of the most satisfying titles I've ever owned. Best of all, it's exciting to know that Command will continue to get even better!

When they are, it will definitely be listed.

It's far more complex than simply changing a few numbers.

Build 568 seems far less stable than 562 was. Playing a large scenario (no problem under 562), my PC keeps freezing. No error message, the game just slows and stops. I can't "click" on any units, I can't close the program. Everything just stops and I have to Shut Down and Force Shut Down on Command to get everything to re-set.

Same here. Cant play a single mission without CTD or the need to ALT-TAB out and termintae the programm. Is there a way to uninstall the beta update?

I find you hilarious. I promise

Just do us a favor and keep the funnies out of anything troubleshooting related. We just want to do our thing and fix stuff.

Thanks

Save of brass drum which has locked up on me 4 or 5 times, seems to be related to changing time compression from my observations (which maybe totally off the mark lol)
