WarBirds III Mandatory Update to 03.20.02
8:46 AM | Tim Morgan | Comment on this story

iEntertainment, makers of WarBirds III, recently released a mandatory update bringing the multiplayer online World War II simulator to version 03.20.02.

The new version rolls in the changes made by the previous two non-mandatory updates, including, most notably, Mac OS X support. In addition, 03.20.02 adds some new features of its own:

  • New: Kaga and destroyer models/cockpits.
  • New: Macchi C205.
  • Tracer smoke texture separated out-now in the \textures folder.
  • Collisions will now not result in maneuver kills.
  • Added torp limits: Torps will fail if on entry to water:
    • Angle < -30deg
    • Speed < 385mph.
  • CM-Level commands:
    • NAVDRONES system setting: This controls who gets to issue .nav commands to drone boats, CVs & Ground Vehicles.

WarBirds III allows players around the world to participate in a persistent online universe set in Western Europe during the Second World War. The game's primary focus is air combat, but vehicle and ship support is slowly emerging.
