Probably right it's going to be a long time yet. Still, it's very heartening to see that they are going after the actual problems. The previous MTG dev diaries mostly sounded to me like fluff.

If they can actually fix naval combat, maybe they can actually fix the battle planner. Do those two things and they'll have a helluva good game on their hands.

2.  Fixed UI piece to show that the Artillery Support tab is actively selected

3.  Fixed missing building damage artwork (shows up black)

It looks like a paintshop jobbie to me  ???

The 'eyes' are a not very uncommon cloud phenomena called 'fallstreak holes'..

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallstreak_hole

A fallstreak hole is a large gap, usually circular or elliptical, that can appear in cirrocumulus or altocumulus clouds.

Such holes are formed when the water temperature in the clouds is below freezing but the water, in a supercooled state, has not frozen yet due to the lack of ice nucleation. When ice crystals do form, a domino effect is set off due to the Bergeron process, causing the water droplets around the crystals to evaporate: this leaves a large, often circular, hole in the cloud.

It is thought that the introduction of large numbers of tiny ice crystals into the cloud layer sets off this domino effect of fusion which creates the hole. The ice crystals can be formed by passing aircraft, which often have a large reduction in pressure behind the wing- or propeller-tips.


As they are mostly formed by aircraft we know them as 'pilot holes'.

Also, guys, come on. I drove the ball straight onto the green -- or onto the ice-covered pond perhaps.

How is it that I have not yet seen EVEN ONE Arnold Freeze meme yet.



Fine, I'll change the thread title.
