File Name: Better And Realistic Flotation v1.3 (215.6 KB) Download
Author: Arclight (Uploaded by Arclight)
Date Added: 03-15-2010
Downloads: 14478
Grade: A+
Description
Changes ship properties to put the results of a torpedo attack more in line with expectations. Aim is to make it possible to sink any ship without resorting to depleting it's HP; i.e. sink it by flooding.

Just to be clear, it's not about strict realism (what would happen in real life), but subjective realism (what we expect to see in the game).


Comes in 3 modules:

BARF full: flotation tweaks + flooding times increased
BARF lite: flotation tweaks only
BARF HP balance: changes HP to be more in balance with the mods objective

Just extract the contents of the zip to your JSGME 'MODS' folder and enable:

1. Either "BRF 1.3 full" OR "BRF 1.3 lite"
2. "BRF 1.1 HP balance" if desired

HP balance is optional, both for convenience and for avoiding possible incompatibility. Should another mod already mess with the .zon files for the ships, you can still use the core mod; ie. the HP balance is not strictly nescesary for proper functioning of the flotation tweaks.

Feedback is more than welcome, in fact it is needed to further this and refine the modifications.

Ahh, Now I can sink a ship without it bursting into flames and slipping under horizontally (every time)!!
This had made a great difference. Many Thanks.

What does exactly your mod ? I am asking because it's confusing to me. Maybe my English is not so good.
You wanna say that your mod solves the "hanging" of ships which took a couple of blows , they are tilted and seem to sink but they still are floating ? That is what you mean ? Cause I encountered this aspect and it was annoying. There were ships at 45 degrees , stopped and still refused to sink...Nasty. Please PM me if you have an answer.Thank you

`it's not about strict realism (what would happen in real life), but subjective realism (what we expect to see in the game).`

That`s what I call thinking too hard. Real life can`t be all that removed from what we might expect. The only thing that tends to be different is stuff sinks not always that fast. I`m not one for pretending I`m looking at realism when it`s not like how it would look. That`s just sort of deceiving yourself. I`d just do it like reality so it`s like looking back in time at the experience itself.

Oh great, now I`m thinking too hard!
oh nvm,

Thank you for your hard work!

I could not find the folder to extract the mod to, and when I do a search for SH5 it is in my startup folder. So I hope it will work for me when I can figure out my current problem. Right now, when I click the icon to open SH5 I get the error message (widows cannot access the specified device path, or file. you may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.) When and if I figure this out I will let you all know if it works for me.
