‘ROCKET LIGHTNING SPIN’ STEAM UPDATE

March 24, 2016 — A recap of the 0.9.2.1 “Rocket Lightning Spin” Steam Update, video at the bottom.

  • P-38L equipped with HVAR rockets available via new challenge “ROCKET LIGHTNING”.
  • PITCH/ROLL/YAW controls re-balanced for flight sticks and 360/XB1-compliant gamepads.
  • Upgraded engine ignites code so spinner/propeller looks more realistic during take-off, engine-off, and ignition.
  • Improved flightstick support. For example, Saitek’s “dual device” X-55 Rhino H.O.T.A.S. system now fully configurable.
  • Added “city light” rendering feature; take-off for a test-flight over Akyab or Rangoon in the middle of the night to sample a myriad of shiny, digital light-bulbs.
  • HUD/GUI overhauled for clarified controls and in-game hint messages. Dynamic keyboard and button icons for improved instructional messages.
  • Adjusted the Campaign mode’s difficulty so that it (should) take more skill and less luck to complete missions.
  • New aircraft: C-46A “Commando” replaces the DC-2 transport for FREE FLIGHT and the “OVER THE HUMP” Himalayas/Campaign mission.
  • New aircraft: Upgraded the Hurricane Mk. IIB fighter so it looks a little sleeker, now comes with five selectable skins for multiplayer, etc — including English-Chinese “Nightflyer” and Soviet Russia variants.
  • New aircraft: P-38L Lightning fighter aircraft added with HVAR weapons system for firing rockets. Four skins are available including ROCAF (China) paint jobs.
