View Full Version : too much armed merchants - where to change ?
03-07-2010, 08:02 AM
i am playing the second campaign at the moment (03/1940). i want to change the armament of the merchants, because approx. 80% of the bigger merchants (regardless of convoi or single ship) are armed with a deck gun (bow & rear), which is afaik not historically correct.
can this be changed to a more realistic percentage ? where ?

Yes can be done
Ship by ship
C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5\data\Sea\
Inside are all the ship folders
Lets open the NLL - Liberty
Open the EQP in notepad
LinkName=NULL < No gun on node
EndDate=19400131 < no gun ends this date
LinkName=4.5In_Mk9_US < now has a gun
StartDate=19400201 < which started on this date
You can change the end date for the NULL entry and the start date for when has a weapon
Need to go thru them myself as all those searchlights in a convoy is a killer
NodeName=L01 ( L is usually Lights\M is usually main guns\S = secondary\A = Anti aircraft\W is usually depth charge,anti sub weapons and T is normally torpedo tubes )
Ignore the commented out lines
Tis where the devs just used the SH4 EQP :doh:
Hope that helps
