@Gap if you get a chance PM the Hedghog Rounds both Fuse Capped and Launch Ready. I will inplement them into an improved Launcher. I'll include with the flower class corvette full credits. Also will build the "Split" design Hedgehog, 12 port, 12 starboard. Fir ships with narrow beams, and deck space at a minimum.

You find it under this Link.
The files are the Real_ASW_Mod.dat, Real_ASW_Mod.sim and Real_ASW_Mod.zon.

The new informations that I have received here in the past few days are not implemented, I´m working on them.

I am sorry guys, I am not leaving you behind but, as you have probably noticed, recently all my free time has been absorbed by Kendras' lighthouse mod and by a problem with the specular texture of model we are experimenting with. I we find a solution, hopefully also your mods will benefir from that.

Thank you for your paticence and stay tuned for updated from me anytime soon

@gap no problem, took a week off from SH III/Wings3D from burnout. ( normally I start something new and avoid what i'm tired of ) not this time! 1942-45 RN Flower Class Corvettes are real close to being done! RCN versions next. Then backdated versions. Type A bridge and short Fo'c's'le, minimal AA, Minesweeping gear.Type B bridge long Fo'c's'le extended bridge wings, upgraded AA, removed MS gear, added ASW Capability ( more throwers ) backdated versions all with mast forward of bridge with a different rigging and mast stay combination. So Beta testing is my only future. ( takes longer than a new model )

If you want I could create a fitting set of DC-files for your mod so that it could be released with the extended DC-system.
If you are interested just PM me the necessary information and the shipfiles and the data is in the works.

Niume anticipated me: during the last few days I have been wondering if you had made any progress with your mod. Since the last time we have discussed about it, I have added a few new models to my collection of 3D ASW ordnance. Models I have (more or less) ready so far are:
  • US 300 lb depth charge Mark 6 / Mark 6 Mod 1 + throwing arbor
  • US 600 lb depth charge Mark 7 / Mark 7 Mod 1
  • US 200 lb depth charges Mark 9 / Mark 9 Mod 1 and Mark 9 Mod 2 + throwing arbors
  • GB 300 lb depth charge Type D Mark III (this one was a WWI depth charge but, according to navweaps.com still in service as late as 1940)
  • GB 290 lb depth charges Mark VII and Mark VII heavy
  • GB hedgehog / US mousetrap projectile (according to John Campbell's "Naval Weapons of WWII" , a version of the latter was modified for being fired or dropped from patrol aircraft)
  • GB squid laucher and projectile (those models are already part of a mod by LGN1)
  • GB 60 lb HE and 25 lb AP RP-3 rockets + rail
  • US 3.5-Inch and 5-inch FFAR rockets + rail (I hope at some moment my rocket models will be merged with Kendras' WIP rockets mod)
  • GB 100 lb A/S bombs Mk. III, IV and VI
  • GB 250 lb A/S bombs Mk. III and IV
  • GB 500 lb A/S bomb Mk. IV
  • US 325 lb Mk. 17 / 350 lb Mk. 44 depth bomb
  • US 350 lb Mk. 41 / Mk. 47 depth bombs
  • US 325 lb Mk. 53 / 350 lb Mk. 54 depth bomb
  • US 650 lb Mk. 29 and Mk. 37 depth bombs
  • US 650 lb Mk. 38 / 700 lb Mk. 49 depth bomb

Moreover, I recommend you to read carefully the following short essay I have found on the lethality/damage radii of underwater ordnance:

http://www.alternatewars.com/BBOW/Su..._Lethality.htm

other useful rediangs on the same topic:

Andrzej Grzadziela - Model of Impact Underwater Detonation, Journal of KONES Powertrain and Transport, Vol. 19, No. 2 2012
David Sulfredge, Robert Morris, Robert Sanders - Calculating the Effect of Surface or Underwater Explosions - Oak Ridge National Laboratory, January 2005
E. Kowsarinia, Y Alizadeh, H. S. Salavati Pour - Experimental Evaluation of Blast Wave Parameters in Underwater Explosions of Hexogen Charges - 2011
Frederick A. Costanzo - Underwater Explosion Phenomena and Shock Physics - Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division, UERD, February 2010
Robert H. Cole - Underwater Explosions - Princeton University Press (1948)
Schneider, Nathan A. - Prediction of surface ship response to severe underwater explosions - Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, June, 2003
Warren D. Reid - The Response of Surface Ships to Underwater Explosions - DSTO (1996)

Of course we cannot simulate the complexity of real shokwave damage but at level required for gaming purposes we can get relatively close to it, and the articles above contain most of what we need to know on the real thing

No, until now because of the trouble with rowi58 who is behaving like a child I was very annoyed and lost interest in SH3 at times.
Meanwhile, the disappointment over his behavior is gone and I focus again on SH3.

I will DL WAC this week and adapt the modfiles to it if the mod looks like an improvement over ccom, what I think should be the case...

@gap

I'm online today for the first time in many months, so I have to look at your mod first before I could say anything about it and the useness of the models.
But they sound really interesting and useful!
Are they made with the same file structure like the Stock-DCs?
