Can anyone reading this confirm or deny enemy AI warships they come across can sometimes get stuck in a passive state?

For example, I have had a few torpedo boats that will point their guns at me and drive around my boat without firing a shot?

I have also come across DDs that are immobile, blairing sirens, deck guns pointed at odd angles towards upper reaches of the stratosphere. I even surfaced near one of these in broad daylight at max speed (in frustration with this bug) and they did nothing.

Also aircraft buzzing over practicing attack runs but never shooting.

Doesn't seem to affect all AI, yesterday I go fed up and TCd out of an area that had some passive ships/planes and then a separate Task Force engaged me putting a very many holes in my boat.

It's an old chivalry thing modelled into IRAI. They just allow you to feel good one last time before they kill you!

Pretty much all is true , especially if you're dealing with lone warships which are protecting ports or similar. That's why I don't do harbor raids any more, including Scapa Flow mission...
You'll notice that things are a bit different at open seas and escorts and destroyers will actually do their job...Mostly... Although I would give them a bit more precise active sonar. Afterall, IRAI is still a WIP...

Airplanes problem is caused by use of TC while they're on the attack run...This may be because of some faulty settings in main.cfg file but I'm not really sure.

Thank you for the detailed explanation. Yes I was only encountering this while in the shortcut of Pentland Firth south of the Orkney Islands. There is a port or two nearby.

It's a big weight off my shoulders, thought some of my lite-modding might have screwed things up.

EDIT: Nevermind, fixed the problem.

Does this mod include a snorkel you have to unlock or does it lack that entirely? If that's the case, TDW's snorkel mod work with it?

How do you mean it is not existing?

Hi MCM

Look at the instructions on Post 1 it tells you all you need to know.

Code:
The Wolves of Steel 1.03
The Wolves of Steel 1.03 - Patch 5
The Wolves of Steel 1.03 - Patch 5_HotFix 2
The Wolves of Steel 1.03 - TDW Real Navigation *
The Wolves of Steel - *x* Resolution Patch * (if needed, default is 16:10)

vecko tells you that the hotfix 2 is not cumulative meaning that it has to be enabled in its own right.

Peter

ANSWERS TO SOME RECENT POSTS:

The snorkel mod is included in this modpack. Only available very late in the war.

Damage control is fully automated. You can click things but there is no prioritization. Time=damage control. Some systems cannot be repaired at sea at all.

My Subsystems are also labeled in German, but the lower half of the page, that shows descriptions, is always in English. Click the subsystem box and read the lower half to see what it is.

Is it just me or is the deck gun 100% useless in this mod? I swear I hit a ship 50 times and it didn't even look damaged. What a waste of time.

That definitely doesn't sound right...

Those little freighters like the Uekel Medium Composite Freighter are fast and tough little suckers and can take a hell of a beating before coming to heal. You can waste a lot of deck gun ammo to kill them! Here's a link to another post regarding U-505 using 80 rounds of 105mm shells to sink a Liberty ship after it had already been torpedoed! http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...61&postcount=9
