War Thunder is ‘within a hair’s breadth’ of a complete destructibility system

War Thunder players will soon be able to destroy the game’s ground environment, according to a new Gaijin dev blog. Previously the ability to destroy vegetation and small objects such as fences and statues was added to the World War II combat sim, but now “wall fragments, ruins, and entire buildings” will be available as well.

Gaijin says that it is “within a hair’s breadth of creating a system of complete destructibility.” You can watch a brief demo vid just past the break.

cald BalsBigBrother In sim battles you don’t get overhead markers, so bushes and grass actually do hide your tank.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdyPhdZLWmA  this video shows you the effect of that perfectly…. and tbh I am not playing a game that looks like classic Dark Age of Camelot did in 2001… unless it’s classic Dark Age of Camelot :P

cald BalsBigBrother its the visual aspect in that some people (who I assume are on high settings) have driven past me simply because they didn’t pick up the shape of my tank hidden in bushes. To people on low settings I am sat in the open because those very same bushes are simply not there.  Yes as you say in what is supposed to be the sim mode that is completely ludicrous

BalsBigBrother I dont think bushes or stuff like that hide your vehicle in this game.. to be hidden the object needs to be solid like a rock or something. Only then will your vehicle not be visable to the player and not show up on the map.

BalsBigBrother That’s just terrible design. Ground cover in a game like this shouldn’t be “optional” Turn the bush into a blob of green or something if they want the settings that low but to just remove it and expose the other sides tanks. /rolleyes

DPandaren BalsBigBrother If an area gives you cover then you should get cover regardless of whether people are gaming the system or not.  It completely spoils the what is otherwise the best tank sim on the market.
