Thanks Samwolf and privateer.
Don't have SHC installed.

You can't rollback something you don't have installed.


GWX 2.1 No other mods installed.
My bad . It's just that usually it's the number 1 reason for that sky effect.

Changes in this version:
  • Several tweaks to the water graphics in OLCE2.
  • Removed the fix to the small freighter mast height in GWX 2.1 because the GWX team are going to release a fix for it.
  • Fixed a typo in OLC GUI Special.
  • Fixed some reflections which were still visible after enabling one of the Remove All Object Reflections mods.
  • Removed the OLCE2 game/mission loading screens.
I hope people like the new look of the water.

I've changed the wave textures a bit, and the reflections a bit, because after more than a dozen OLCU patrols those are the things that looked to me like they could be improved (and the recently added option to remove all object reflections meant that for the first time I could tweak the reflections without the constraint of trying to stop the ship reflections getting too messed up).

I wasn't sure whether to release that change since people seem to like OLCE2 as it is, but I really think it's an improvement so I took the risk.
Let me know what you think!

Hi OLC!

Just downloaded it

I had a sneaky suspicion another version would be released. That's the problem with being a perfectionist, you can't leave the tweaking alone... :rotfl:

Excellent work again,

Cheers!

Default Help for dialups?

Hi OLC, enjoying earlier version of your mod, any chance you could upload the new version in smaller packets? My dialup connection times out...Thanks and Aloha from Hawaii!

@Budsurf,
If it's OK with OLC, I could burn a copy and mail it to you.

Really? :hmm:
When I tested 7zip a few months ago it wasn't as good as WinRAR.
I'll give it another try...

Yes I have. I do not exaggerate, I assure you. Ahead flank, fully surfaced, I've (more than once) run circles around escorts in 1939 on clear-night tests. Each time I would pass right in front of the destroyer at a few hundred metres, once or twice nearly colliding with it! In a couple of these tests it didn't see me at all, and in a couple of tests it caught sight of me the second or third time I passed in front of it's bow.

In one test I also weaved between merchants in a 1939 convoy, again fully surfaced at ahead flank. I was not detected, in spite of the presence of a BB in the middle of that convoy, which I circled a couple of times.
Oh yeah!!! You are more than right...

While on patrol at BE61 a convoy suddenly came into view. Unfortunately, the weather was awfuly bad (15m/s , visibility 5km) and the ships were cruising at 10 knots... I fired two torpedoes to a large merchant but both of them exploded prematurely. The next salvo didn't find the target...

100 meters away from that small merchant and didn't see me. Of course, one might say that i passed undetectable due to the heavy sea but 100 meters is close enough...

BTW, v2.4 has just been downloaded from the FF page.

One minor thing: I can't get the lowered df antennas to work with OLCE. Neither installing the antennas before nor after worked out. Maybe someone managed to get them lowered?
