Bomber Crew - Update #2 Patch Notes


Thanks everyone, for all your suggestions and feedback. We’ve got plenty of work to do in preparing the console version of Bomber Crew, but your enthusiasm and support has given us the extra boost we need to continue improving the PC version, and the second update is here!

Here’s what’s new:
  • ‘Lock Pilot to Station Button’
    If you’ve ever found yourself in a situation where your pilot has wandered off without you realising, you may appreciate this new feature! There’s a new button on the Pilot’s station panel, which can be clicked to lock your pilot to the station, preventing them being sent elsewhere in the bomber. Click it again to unlock.

  • ‘Enemy Ace Health Bars Appear as Objectives’
    Now when your crew encounters an enemy Ace fighter, their health will appear on the right hand side of the screen as an objective, giving a clearer idea of how the battle is going.

  • ‘Toggle Quick Peek with the ‘Z’ Key’
    Hit the ‘Z’ key and your view will zoom straight into the bomber, allowing you to quickly get managing your crew. Hit the ‘Z’ key a second time to return to the previous camera view.
  • Other Changes:
    - Balancing of mid and later missions has been improved. They’re still challenging, but some groups of jets have been spaced out a little.

    - Leaking fuel tanks now display a visible effect.

    - Crew can now move when the bomber is at steeper angles.

    - Low fuel warning are now repeated to give them more urgency.

    - ‘Bail Out’ order can now be canceled by clicking the button a second time.

    - ‘Slow Time’ camera zoom is reduced.

    - Fixed: Engine fire extinguishers would not deplete if station was vacated.

    - Fixed: ‘Medium’ and ‘Low’ altitude button labels were swapped around.

    - Fixed: Rockets can no longer be detonated by clouds!

    - Heavier crew gear now slows down crewmembers slightly less.

    - Fixed: Rendering error on rear-starboard tail fin.

    - Fixed: Audio stuttering sometimes caused by many anti-aircraft guns firing together.

    There are plenty of things that didn’t make it in this time, but more improvements are on the way!

    If you’ve enjoyed the emotional rollercoaster of guiding your crew through Bomber Crew’s campaign, please consider nominating it for the “Choices Matter” Steam Award. This award seems to be tailor made for what we were striving for!

    We’re so grateful for all the kind words of support we’ve received, it really has been the best year :)


    Dave & Jon.

Halloween Update Patch Notes

Here’s what’s new:
  • ‘Slow Time’ - Hold Ctrl
    We think this is a good compromise for the players who like their action a little less intense at times, while retaining the urgency of the situations crews found themselves in.

    By holding ‘Ctrl’, time will slow, allowing more breathing space for quick decisions. A small bar in the top left of the screen will show how much longer time can be slowed for. Once the bar runs out, it will fill again over a short period. The Slow Time feature can be used even when the bar is not fully filled.

    For those of you who are hardcore #nopause advocates, a bonus is rewarded at the end of each mission if you do not use the Slow Time ability. And if you really dislike it, it can be switched off entirely in the options menu.

  • ‘Quick Peek’ - Hold Shift
    Quickly move the camera to view inside the bomber! This was in the previous release, but somewhat hidden. Especially powerful when used along with ‘Slow Time’!

  • Camera control keys - ‘W, S, A & D’
    The camera can now be zoomed in/out with the W/S keys, and moved left and right with A/D.
    This is especially useful in ‘Quick Peek’ mode!

  • Hot Keys!
    We’ve added a few hotkeys to make some trickier actions a little more straightforward in the heat of battle!

    Hot Key: Reload Ammo - ‘R’
    Select a crewmember and hit the ‘R’ key - they will immediately head to the ammo box and grab a fresh belt. If they were manning a turret when the command was issued, they will return to it and reload!

    Hot Key: Heal at Rest Bed - ‘F’
    Select a crewmember and hit the ‘F’ key - they will head to the Rest Bed to regain some health.

    Hot Key: Go to Pilot Station - ‘P’
    Ever get that sinking feeling during a sortie? It’s probably because your pilot has wandered off!
    Now you can simply select a crewmember and hit the ‘P’ key - they will go straight to the pilot’s station and grab the steering yoke!

  • Difficulty Balancing
    We have made some changes to difficulty based on your feedback.
    Later in the game, you’ll now receive higher level recruits and replacement bombers featuring better upgrades.

  • Improved Options
    Volume for music and effects can be independently adjusted.
    You can now flip the camera’s Y axis in the options menu.

    The controls options have now been moved to the pause menu’s ‘Options’ page.

  • Happy Halloween!
    We’ve included a few free special livery items for you to celebrate!

  • Various bug fixes and improvements
    We’ve chased down many bugs, fixed a bunch and *think* we’ve fixed a few more.
    We’ll try to address specific issues in the forums. Please do keep reporting anything you happen to find, we very much appreciate it!
    We’ve also made various improvements, such as speeding up the crew survival wheel at the end of the missions.
That’s all in this first update! Please keep the feedback and suggestions coming, we are listening!
