Hey there, I'm coming back after a long pause and i feel some appealing toward this game again. Feels fresh and in many aspects some changes were made through patches.

Anyway, i'm experimenting with equipment and i've noticed that the bonus gained and lost are shown when you switch them. But one thing puzzles me:

I was under the impression that Camo net does not increase view range too. So is this a bug or something else happening here?

Simple, if you replace camo net with optics, you  will gain 10% VR but lose the camo bonus.

Yes, i figured that too. But look in the picture, it says i lose 111 concealment and also lose 101 spotting. I mean i get the concealment loss but wouldn't be logical to gain spotting in return? It's like camo adds spotting too and more than optics's 10%. That does not make any sense as it's not supposed to do that, binocs are for that. This is my predicament. I suppose it's a bug but what if it's not because with other equipment exchange the win/loss attributes are displayed properly. As far as i know of course. Maybe someone else has a better explanation?

Either you have bincos on it to, and that shows that optics won't make it better then you have currently. Or you have a really badly trained crew in it still. As red numbers just show it's not at it's max performance yet, even with those optics.

Aha, makes sense. I do have binocs on. Just tried again with them off and it doesn't show view range increase, just camo loss. Weird that it would show optics mounting in the slot of camo net, as a view range loss. As the max view range was increased by a different equipment from another slot. So it is a bug! :)

Like mentioned, the reason as to why you lose spotting is because you must have binocs mounted as well

and your viewrange would decrease becauss it compared the optics with the binocs, and the binocs would give more than the optics

Not a bug as such, it just shows that the current equipment won't improve over anything you currently have on.
