Thanks for this mod. I have often wondered if merchant ships used search lights following a u-boat attack for obvious reasons. This mod should also help u-boats with escaping on the surface following a close range night surface attack on a convoy. In my experience if you get in close, say 1,000 metres, as soon as your torps hit you are likely to be illuminated by a merchant ship with his search light no matter how far away the escorts might be and are immediatly under attack and have to dive. This should give you a better chance of sneaking away on the surface in the darkness to reload and attack again.
