Thanks a lot for the news. Two questions though :
- does a cloud prevent all deck operations, including spotting / back to hanger or just the launching and landing of aircraft ?
- is the critical ship feature an option that can be chosen or is it embedded in the game engine ?

Just launching & landing of aircraft.

The CS feature is toggled on or off in the scenario editor, so is not set by default.

Many thanks for the reply, rahami.
The one on deck operations is obvious enough, but safer is safer...
I look forward to the update.
