Dear Steam players!
For unknown reasons, Steam have started downloading the game files again.
In order not to download existing files again, you can use the following algorithm:
- Pause the download of the game on Steam client.
- Find the folder with the War Thunder game and rename it (for example, as “War Thunder1”).
- On Steam client, uninstall the War Thunder game.
- Rename the game folder back to its original name.
- On Steam, find the War Thunder game and click “install”.
- Steam will check the files and download the missing ones, if necessary, so you can continue to play.
