    Explosions NEVER have affected shiels in the words meaning - at least not in the VANILLA game.

    To understand the changelogs meaning:
    A rocket has a DAMAGE and a BLAST DAMAGE. The modifier for BLAST damage has been set to 0 since shields were introduced. So only the rockets "hit impact" Damage (Base Damage) was counted. Same for all other AoE weapons.

    See ItemsConfig.ecf
    DamageMultiplier_4: 1.1, param1: shield > primary "on impact" damage
    BlastDamageMultiplier_3: 0, param1: shield > AoE damage

    The only "device" that was an exception were the C4 charges (explosives) as the ONLY have 'Blast damage', other than nearly any other weapon they would really do zero damage if they were set to 0.

    See EClassConfig.ecf
    ExplosiveDevice > BlastDamageMultiplier_3: 0.2, param1: shield (Will probably be increased to compensate for the changes)

    PS: Weapon effects, effectivity against, values and numbers and whatsoever might be subject to a rebalancing in the future, though.

    Thank you for the clarifications on #61 and the reminder to everyone regarding weapon's effects and their upcomming rebalance, on 62. I missunderstood that such rebalance was talking place already with the energy damage type weapons, but had tested only with explosion charges that do only blast damage.:D

    Assumption is the mother of @#[email protected]#$ some say.;)

    I can't take any credit for spotting this. All the credit goes to @Khaleg.
    I just asked the devs for confirmation of if the change was actually meant to be applied to the Explosive Devices.

    You can always set the shortcut keys to default. Vessels do not have special keys for navigation. Up and down works the same on all circumstances, on foot in SV/HV/CV. Default keys are "c" and "space bar" Unless you mean the free view "look around" :

    For third person page up/down changes your view.
    In first person there's no way to change the camera, though you can use a hot key to look around while in the cockpit.

    There used to be, I am sure. While in 1st person in cockpit of my HV i was able to rise or lower my view. It was in small steps. This key was not stated in menu bindings. Can someone ask the developers?

    That was never a thing in this game.
    First person view has always been locked.
    Only third person views while piloting a vessel have ever been adjustable.

    Left ALT is how you look around, but height in first person has always been locked.

    You can ask the developers if you really want to, but we aren't lying to you.
    It's not possible.

    I meant in 1st person view while in HV cockpit. I remember this because it was suprising :)

    That is what they are trying to tell you mate.
    While in 1st person and in a HV cockpit, there hasn't been a way to raise and lower the view. You can only look around.

    Yeah I knew what you meant.
    It's never been possible in this game.

    Thanks for the answer. Then it's not really important for me, EAC recognizes the macro keys on my G510 keyboard as cheat and blocks the complete keyboard, so I deactivated EAC ;-)

    Hey! I've been gone for a very long time. Are there any plans for other updates coming down the road? I know this has probably been asked somewhere else, sorry if it's a repeat question.

    They are constantly updating the game but we don't know what the changes are until they drop them.
