Hi all,

I'm glad to announce a new release of BDAc for KSP 1.5.1!

	* New smoke model.
	* Autopilot: Orbiting direction can be set.

* ENHANCEMENTS:
	* Explosive blast forces increased.
	* Hitpoints rounding reduced to 100. #432 
    * Missiles can be jettisoned using action group #539
	* Max detonation range for air explosive bullets increased from 3500m to 8000m.

This could be dealt with some third-party coding, but I guess it would be useful to someone else too. Would you consider that?

To be honest at the moment it is just me doing some active development on BDA.

Currently, I will just do maintenance of BDA to make it work in future versions of KSP and features that I'm really interested on like missile guidances and modular missiles, etc.

It is based on real life emp, which disables all electronic equipment.

Aka, a computer controlled aircraft.

I know what an EMP does, it's just that I don't understand why it would be implemented within BDAc, as it more or less does the same thing as a conventional AMRAAM? I mean, if you like the concept of EMPs, that's bound to give you a little fun, but I just personally don't see the reason behind the EMP variant.

Nothing says you have to use it. Other people do. Not everything in there is going to appeal to every person.

I know that, I'm just putting out my two cents on it. If you like it, that's fine. I'm not wanting to stop you - far from it. If anything, I miss stuff like North Kerbin with its' nukes. I miss building ICBMs and what not and flinging them at targets and actually seeing the apocalyptic aftermath. :(

Well, disabling a tank and bursting through layers of armour and destroying it is different.

I created some nukes, hope you like it.

Have you guys fixed the occurrence where 2 or more AI's pick the same target when there are other enemy's who pose a larger threat in the latest release?

It really got on my nerves in the previous release (1.2.2.2)

How is this a bug?

@Hojoz It isn't really a bug, if the A.I decides to attack that fighter plane instead of the bomber, then that is their choice. You can't blame the A.I., they weren't made for super tactical target picking.

Thanks for answering. 

It'll surely be less annoying seeing as nearly all the other things that bugged me have been fixed in the newest release.

On a seperate note, this might be a good development, labelling individual craft as high/medium/low threat for each seperate craft in a GI.

is there a way to make multiple gun variants fire at the same time? like a m230 chain gun turret shooting at the same time as a vulcan turret on the same craft.

Currently, no. But it is something that all of us would like to see :)

This should be calculated using weapons detected on that enemy craft and their distance from your craft.
If enemy weapon range is higher than your it is "high" priority target, if it is lower then "low".

I suggest a new UI on the weapons manager, tagging the craft as bomber/fighter/interceptor/AA gun/SAMbatteries/tank/tank destroyer/others.

Bombers will always be engaged first, tank destroyers too.

I would like to see my bombers shooting out enemy aircraft while bombing.

While talking about AI, is there a way that I can get rid of evading in the code or something? I just want to force an AI to go bomb the target, not evade the one .50 cal firing at it.

Fly... higher?

not really a solution, I want low-flying bombers to work, and sometimes stray fire distracts even super high aircraft- not to mention I'm using Abrams cannons as heavy AA... might work with the .50 cals though

Was the AI aiming of fixed guns fixed this update? Even with version 1.2.3.0 in ksp 1.5.1, they still cannot hit the target if it is flying straight or maneuvering slightly, the lead is always a little low.
