Okay, in future we will work on it. Now, as you said, time for our families

Yup! And I have to say that what you've done is a huge improvement. I might have started work on increasing the realism of ASW, but you've taken it miles and miles beyond what I'd started.

Hi schlechter pfennig

have you seen these? #128 and #129

I realize that after many years since you last worked on your increased ASW mod, you might not have an answer to all my remarks on it, but since you offered to help with padi's mod, I ask you to do an effort and to give me your opinion about at least on of the topics I raised:

ASW Weapons @ navweaps.com
). Both navweaps.com and Campbell list the illogical figure of 600 fps (183 mps!) as terminal velocity of the streamlined Mark VIII 250-lb a/c depth charge, but I regard it as a typo. No information at all on the sinking speeds of US depth bombs.
Thank you

I had no intention of being rude or dismissive. All of my info came from online research and was at least two computers ago. I've been trying to resurrect my oldest pc that should have all my research materials on it. Basically, I can confirm that any and all of my decisions were founded on articles (the majority military in nature). I've also been distracted trying to debug the CTD issue with the depth charge noise mod, something that's been taking roughly 8 hours a day of focused time, and that also distracted me from a speedy reply.

I'll try and go through the noted posts and make replies to them in the next few days.

Schlechter pfennig you haven't been neither rude nor dismissive. I never thought that, and I am sorry if I gave you that impression. On the contary I realize how busy you have been with your other mod, and I share your frustration about it.

I should have started my post of yesterday night by saying that, but I forgot to. Anyway... just take it as a friendly reminder, and take your time on those replies.

I am not in a hurry

I resurrected my old XP; the files aren't on that one, so they must be on my old(er) 98 HD. That, I'm afraid, may take me quite some time to access.

This part of the preparation is finished.
You could find the file here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/f9zxa1...alit%E4ten.ods

In the first tab you have the classnames of the ingame destroyers and the nations in which rosters they are included.
In the second tab I have faced the classnames and the real names.
In the third tab we have all the aircraft in game and their nationalities. I don´t know, if they carry ASW-gear, but I have written them anyway...

I´m now working on part three. What do you think which nationalities we could feature?

GB and US should be sure, whats about french, polish and italian DCs?
