War Thunder: Update Fixes Smoke Temperature Issue

War Thunder Update
War Thunder Update Steam

A new update for War Thunder has been deployed. Update has fixed the issue where smoke temperatures are affected by the time of day.

You see, the smoke that comes from smoke grenades should remain at a constant temperature, day or night. That said, a bug was found where the smokescreen was displayed as low temperature when using thermal imaging equipment at night. This shouldn’t be the case, so the developers fixed the problem in the game’s latest patch.

Aside from that, the issue where some planes have missing aircraft contacts when the game resolution was set at a lower value than the monitor's resolution has been resolved.
