Ok, Silent hunter 2, 3 and 4 had what seemed like bottomless oceans. where you could crush your sub. in SH5, there is too much shallow water and not enough abyss. Anyone agree or am I wrong?

In the Atlantic there is plenty of depth. The navigator reports depth under keel as being below safety depth.
Hope this answers your question:salute:

Step 1- Disable all Mods
2- Take you boat to the middle of the Atlantic.. or if you really want to, go to the Pacific near the Marianas Trench.
3- Dive to the max depth you can, and then set speed to 1knt.
Edit* These are not modern nuclear submarines. They are not designed to go to 1000ft + and come back.. Theoretically it shouldn't matter how deep the ocean is past 400m. But with querky game problems, crush depth is less of an issue.
I'm pretty sure all recent SH games are made with relatively reliable global depth/elevation data. Haven't really seen any inconsistencies with the real world so far - sure, if you're staying in the North Sea, it's shallow. Because it is in real life.
