View Full Version : Iceberg/Icefieds issues
Trying to make a High density Iceberg field, but when I sail into it WOW
they are rolling, tumbling about and floating in the air, and sometimes from no where up pops a flow, One even picked me up,, out of the water, and left me stranded high in the sky as it stopped rolling! then the brid DD tore me apart when it showed up 20 minutes later,, I was a sitting Duck
am I doing something wrong??

Im not sure if I understand what you mean, but the only reason I could think icebergs would do such things is that you have placed them too shallow. I once put a group of icebergs in very shallow water and was rewarded with this wierd looking island where 50m high icebergs had "fell" on their sides because there wasnt enough water for them to actually "float" :P
And escpecially if you have given them some speed it could be that they are just hitting the bottom all the time.

Hewsu is correct... the most likely cause is water depth. What you should do, is run the mission in "Normal" difficultly mode (so you have an external camera) and then zoom down to the bottom of the icebergs to see if they are touching the ocean floor. In some cases it may also be "clipping" the bottom too, which also causes major problems. Also avoid placing the icebergs too close together, that will cause them to interfere with each other.
There is no easy way to figure this out before hand, although you could place some "test icebergs" to get an idea of the minimum distances, and then go from there to populate the rest of your ice-field.
