[Development] Parallax and Updated Sights for Ground Vehicles

Ground battle fans! Not so long ago, the third-person-view sight, the main weapon of every War Thunder tanker, was updated. We’ve added a new marker whose main purpose is to notify the gunner in advance about potential obstacles in the shell’s flight path.

Aiming the cannon is now based on data from three main markers, two old ones and one new one:

  • The large central marker: Not the gun sight, but the player’s view indicator and the center of convergence to which the gun tries to turn.
  • The new half-transparent small marker: This marker notifies the gunner in advance about potential obstacles between the gunner and the target, and displays the point at which the gun will be aimed after aiming is complete. It follows the large central marker almost without delay, but in contrast to the first, takes into account the limits of the gun’s aiming angles and the presence of obstacles in the estimated line of fire.
  • The small opaque marker: This marker’s task is to indicate the weapon’s actual trajectory at the current moment in time. When this marker matches the new semi-transparent marker, and if they are both aimed at the target, you can freely open fire.
The new marker not only provides a timely warning of obstacles in your line of fire, but also provides a means to significantly reduce the influence of the parallax effect, which we will now describe in more detail.

It is rare for skirmishes to take place on a completely clear field with only a few trees between you and your opponent. The battlefield is more often a complex collection of objects, full of bomb craters, strewn with the wreckage of war other obstacles that make aiming difficult. But there is another factor separating the gunner from their prey.

In most game modes, the camera is located above the vehicle model, allowing you to better control the vehicle and view the battlefield, but the price of this convenience is the so-called “parallax effect”. After all, as much as we might want it to be otherwise, the gun is mounted on the tank and the shells fly from its barrel, which, in third-person view, can cause a distorted understanding of the battle conditions, leading the player to hit a defenseless rock or a nearby hill instead of the opponent.


Parallax in action – the target is visible to you, but not to the tank’s gunner.​

“How can this be?” you ask. It’s all very simple.

Look: in third-person view, when your line of sight floats above your tank, you can see your opponent, but the crew’s view is another story entirely.


The enemy will be destroyed!


A rock will be destroyed

If you fire in this situation, the shell will hit nothing but stone, and the enemy will be sure not to miss in response.

Of course, the parallax effect also has an influence in the sky, but the issue of aiming there is not so critical, and the victim of parallax is, in the worst case, an ally who gets between you and the target you’re attacking. The effect itself can be smoothed by configuring the vertical and horizontal aiming of aircraft weaponry.

The most reliable solution to the problem is informing the player about the shell’s behavior after it is fired. And this new aiming mechanic is already available to all tankers.

But before that, we have made another very significant change to aiming mechanics – when aiming the weapon, obstacles that aren’t part of the earth’s surface were ignored; this solved a problem that presented itself as a barrel raising up when approaching large objects.


The enemy is in our sights and we’re ready to open fire as soon as we come out of cover – the barrel won’t move.

The convenience of aiming around obstacles increased, but the new mechanic made the parallax effect even more apparent to players, showing it not only at the time of the shot, but also when aiming from obstacles. An unavoidable consequence of all these changes aimed at improving aiming mechanics in battle was updating the main weapon of any tanker – the sight.

From now on, the sight takes into account natural obstacles, but doesn’t concentrate on them, at the same time allowing you to both easily aim at the enemy and take into account potential obstacles in the firing line before the weapon turns in the required direction.


Even the most insignificant obstacles can cause shell detonation!


Enemy detected, sight aimed – all that remains is to wait for the turret to turn.

Parallax has been defeated, now all you have to do is defeat your enemies. Good luck in battle, we wish you many frags!

Wahlweise kannst du dich auch der gepanzerten Vorhut am Boden anschließen und für die Vormachtstellung auf dem Schlachtfeld kämpfen: Entscheide dich für einen schweren Kampfpanzer mit beeindruckender Feuerkraft, nutze die hohe taktische Beweglichkeit von leichten und mittelschweren Panzern zu deinem Vorteil oder schirme deine verbündeteten Bodentruppen mit einem Flugabwehrfahrzeug gegen feindliche Luftschläge ab - die Wahl liegt bei dir!

In Zukunft werden die Spieler von War Thunder auch selbst ‘Segel setzen’ und dabei eine Vielzahl von Kriegsschiffen im Kampf um die Kontrolle der Weltmeere steuern können, was dem Spiel zu wahrhaftig epischen Ausmaßen verhilft.

amazing game, only thing i have wrong with it is it updates when you open the launcher so if you want to play it you have to wait for it to update but beside that one of the best free games ive seen/played. The in-game purchases arent spammed at you and you can easily upgrade without buying anything

Great graphics, runs smooth as silk, fun gameplay, i dont have the patience for anything other than arcade air and tank battles, but they've done great with both.

My only complaint is having a bomber in air battles with nothing worth bombing, waste of a slot, i should get a air to air only option prior to these sorts of battles.

amazing game for a free to play, wait for a sale (theres no rush trust me) and ask chats for premium tank/aircraft advice.

gameplay: 9/10
visuals: 10/10 (even better if you got a beastly pc, im playing it at mid level graphics and its beautiful)
value for money: f2p/10
story: story is for illiterates who cant read books, you dont need no ♥♥♥♥ing story!

Overall: give it a try if you got the hdd space, huge game.

Of all the hours I put into this game, I can't recommend this game. It's a massive grind to get to any new tank and the matchmaking is seriously so bad that it makes it impossible to play correct or have fun. And good luck playing America

Warthunder ist ein ganz nettes Spiel, ich persönlich konnte ihm nicht zu viel abgewinnen. Die Spielmechanik ist zu undurchsichtig. Ein nette Abwechslung. Allerdings sind die Entwickler absolute Arschlöcher, die Youtube/Twitcher bedrohen(Copyrightstrike missbrauch zur Schließung von Kanälen, falls diese nicht kritische/auf Bugs und Cheats hinweisenden Videos, nicht löschen). Die Drohung wurde zwar zurückgenommen allerdings die Dreistigkeit diese aufzustellen ist nicht hinnehmbar.

Also ein großer Mittelfinger in Richtung Gaijin

Ich liebe dieses Game. Es gibt Flugzeuge, es gibt Panzer. Es gibt keine Goldmuni wie bei einem ähnlichen Spiel. Es gibt irgendwann Schiffe. Man kann so geniale Gefechte haben. Wir zocken das mit Clan und haben einfach nur unfassbar viel Spass mit diesem Spiel. Wer Interesse an Panzer und Flugzeuge der 2. WK und bis 1950er Ära hat, reinschauen. Ist ja Free-to-Play. Und es gibt keinen Pay to Win. Saugut! Hab mal ein Video von einem unserer Gefechte verlinkt.

I started playing the Game back in 2013 (Patch 1.27) and it was great. Since then the Game gradually went downhill. The Introduction of an excruciating, unnessecary Vehicle/Module Grind (especially at High Era Vehicles) and the outright broken Battle Rating System. Combined with the sheer amount of broken Features and the dismissal behaviour of Gaijin to Community Feedback, in addition to their Soviet-/Cold War Mentality made me stop Playing the Game a long Time ago.

The Grind

Barely noticeable at low Level Vehicles it will soon begin to get ridiciulous at Mid to High Era Planes where some unlockable Modules will cost more RP than most of the Era 3-4 Planes.
Starting with Patch 1.31, Gaijin continiously reduced the Credit/RP income which forces you at some point to buy a Premium Account and/or overpriced Premium Vehicles.

Btw: Don´t bother to convert your Free RP via Gold as the Conversion Rate isn´t worth your Money (1:45 Ratio)

Battle Ratings

The Battle Rating System was originally designed to replace the Static 20-Tier System but made the Gameplay with every new major Patch procedural worse as more and more Vehicles are compressing the BR Brackets, resulting in Mid-WW2 Planes sealclubbing Pre-WW2 Biplanes or Korean War Jets clubbing late WW2 Prop Planes. Since its introduction Gaijin claims that the BR System is working as designed which simply isn´t true.

Gaijin

Gaijin went from an open, transparent Company to ignorant, nationalistic Bigots who don´t give a damn about their European/American Playerbase, effectively shielded by their Forum Mods/Community Managers from any constructive Criticism and have an openly sycophancy attitude towards Gaijin. Many of those Mods often resort to trolling and outright abusing their Powers against regular Players. Even Youtuber/Streamer are affected.

Historical Accuracy and Balance

To give them Credit, Gaijin manages to recreate Aircraft/Tank Models with great Details but that´s it. On multiple occasions many Tanks and Planes were "corrected" via "Secret Documents" from unverified Russian/Soviet Sources and were thus stripped from certain Equipment Modules and/or recieved inferior Performance Characteristics compared to their Real-World Counterparts. Most of these were applied to Non-Russian Vehicles. At the same time, many Russian Vehicles recieved considerable buffs (the Best example being Post-War Ammunition added to T-34/T-44/IS-2 Tanks).

This Russian Bias - which is constantly being denied by Gaijin - killed the Game for many of the Players.



tl;dr - I can´t recommend this Game anymore

I have played this game since I was first introduced to it by jingles. (Jan, 5 2013) When i first started playing i was in love. It was the only thing I ever did all day. The thought of getting to jet drove me to play for 14 hours at a time. The game was great. Then the updates started to come... At first it was just harder to make money and xp. People hated it but I kind of liked it. Then the BR system came and balance left. Matchmaking had trouble getting fair matches but even that wasnt so bad. Then the russian bias got real. Im not one of those people that complain that I died to X russian plane/tank but after seeing russian tanks and planes survive things that would destroy any other tank it got annoying. (planes putting out fires, t-34s bouncing tiger 2 shots in the side, ext) But even this wasnt what made me quit this game. It's the company. They are absolutly terrible. Constantly censoring anyone with an opinion than dosent match theirs. They threaten to ruin RB if we dont let them attack youtubers that help them by finding cheaters? And even steam isn't safe. They constantly have people downvote any review that is negative. I can forgive russian bias. I can forgive the terrible BR system. I cannot forgive this company for the way they treat their community. To Anton Yudintsev, you made a game that was amazing. I loved it so much and always will. But what you have become as a company will destroy you in the end. Listen to the community, let them help you make the game better. If you do that, this game has a chance to rise back up into greatness.

Played the game for months, unlocked tier V planes for every nation and reached the mid-ranks with some tanks.
Then Gaijin sent me a message claiming I had used the Steam refund system to refund money on a 5000 Golden Eagles purchase MONTHS after they claim the refund had happened.
However, I have never used the Steam refund system before. I couldn't find any record of it on my bank account and had to spent €25.- in the Gaijin shop for War Thunder in order to get my account back after it got frozen.

After that I' am no longer interested in playing this game. Not after the Devs showed a poor ability in communcation and made accusations which I couldn't even defend rightfully.

Don't spent any money on this game, Gaijin might ask you for more after you do ;)

War Thunder is complicated to review.

The game itself can be good fun at times. I enjoy flying the F84, an American jet fighter, and flanking an enemy tank in the M18 Hellcat, and destroying them with one shot, is a satisfying experience. However, War Thunder can also be extremely frustrating. It's rather annoying to have your tank's track blown off by a teammate as you're leaving the spawn. It's downright infuriating when you flank a T34 and its gun rotates 90 degrees in under a second to blow you up, because the enemy player is using an aimbot. That's a story for further along, however.

Moving on to how the game itself plays. The controls are fully customizable, and you can fly with a joystick or mouse and keyboard. Aircraft controls can be as in-depth or simple as you wish them to be, controlling everything from prop pitch to fuel mixture. If that's not your style, you can just press W to throttle up and have the game take care of everything else for you. Tanks are much more simple to control than planes in game modes such as Simulator Battles, only requiring you to drive and aim. Each avaliable nation in the game has its own unique play style. The American planes tend to rely on speed and firepower, working well with "Boom and Zoom" tactics. The Japanese planes are very maneuverable, usually putting them on the top of the heap in dogfights. Tanks are the same way, the Germans relying on heavy armor and big guns, while the Russians are usually a tad more maneuverable for instance.

The mechanics of the game are good on their own. However, when the company behind this game enters the picture, the waters get murky. Things they control, such as the BR (Battle Rating) system, are not the most well designed or balanced at the time of writing. There is also a presence of bias for some nations at different tiers. This is most noticeable for the Russian vehicles in the game. Russian planes will commonly outperform their opponents despite all circumstances. The topic of "Russian Bias" is a very complicated one, and I don't wish to go too far down the rabbit hole with my review, but I assure you it is there.

Outside of the game itself, the company is very heavy handed with controlling the community. A very recent incident presented a poll, which to my understanding was taken down due to a large backlash from the community. This poll was created because of a video made by YouTuber PhlyDaily, who creates content related to War Thunder and other similar games. PhlyDaily made a video exposing a hacker within the game, and Gaijin claimed that this would cause more harm than good, hence the poll. This poll is a problem because it presented two choices: Ruin a preferred game mode, or abuse YouTube's copyright strike system to silence any YouTuber that covered hacking or any related issues in War Thunder. If that wasn't bad enough, they asked for the community's help in executing option two. What they proposed is technically illegal.

The company behind this game is constantly pulling shady moves and attempting to strongarm the community keeping them afloat. I haven't even mentioned their awful business model yet. It is for these reasons that I sadly can not recommend what could be a fun game. The only reason I continue to play War Thunder is because I've sunk money into it, a product that I wanted to see reach its full potential. However, I do not intend to spend another dime supporting this game, or Gaijin, and I suggest you stay far, far away until things improve, if they ever do.
