Hey guys im just wondering if its worth adding, how good do you rate i? Also is it compatible with with other mods?

From what I recall it sounded really interesting but if memory serves correct it was not compatible with Beery's RUB mod. I could be wrong on this as it's been awhile.

I dont got it because many people says that it keep the renown for ship sunk but not their tonnage.
Personally am not too hot on it as it's a hack and I believe you spend 31 days in 'port'?

I'm using it and I like it! :up:
The only drawback (for some) is the fact that when you dock with a milk cow, your current patrol ends and you will start a new patrol with fresh fuel and eels. If Sansal is ever able to find a workaround for this glitch whereby re-supply extends your current patrol, I think it will really come into it's own.
Also, you only have 2 cows (in Spanish ports) early on in the war, up to 1942 - the mid-Atlantic cows don't come into the game until about mid 1942 onwards.
Check it out.

It is a very good mod. I can say it is essential.
The ressuply gets only one day, and you have your renonw and medals.
The only problem of the mod is that when you go the normalport, the next misssion will starts one day later if you don´t do any changes in your sub. You can control the stay in port changing the emblem of the sub. For each change, the stay will increase in 5 days. So with this mod you can control the stay in the port. :up:

it is great, but the problem is that it mixes up the time in base - it takes the "milk cow" or supply ship as a base, but reduces the time for reloading and refuelling down to one or two days, like this supply would have taken in real time. I found the time spent in the real bases reduced to two days or so also, and this interferes with SH3 commander (if you use it) and maybe also with the RUB mod.
If someone posted what really interferes with what ?

Beltza just said in his post above that time at the real base is controlled by changing a sub emblem. When at the base, replace your emblem and then change it back and you have 10 day delay and if you get a new equipment the time spent at the base becomes proprotionaly longer.
As to general question about the compatibility with other mods, it depends on what the other mods are. Be more specific.

I'm curious as to 'Milk Cow's' compatability with the 'no fatigue' mod, myself.
