Is it able to set target direction even by other way than just periscope bearing?

Am i able just get complete target picture from distance by periscope and then, just wait until sound engineer, or myself find out, that target is already at fire bearing, put current target bearing to torpedoes and fire without showing periscope again?

Or i just need to set periscope before leaving to my firing bearing, wait and fire which is kinda workaround?

I found out "send data to tdc" button at hydrophone, but it doesn't seems to work, track angle in tdc would change...

If you want to observe without disrupting the firing solution, change from auto-update to manual (red to gray) on the TDC dials.

Dont want to ebserve, i want to say fire to 340 without using periscope
(equivalent of going to peri, look to 340 and fire).

My idea is to get everything mandatory from longer distance and then just ask sound engineer for bearing of contact.
I can calculate easy where the target will be at wanted angle on bow, so i dont need to show periscope anymore when i want to fire and it doesn't seems immersive to go to periscope station and fire without raising it out of the water just because i have no other way how to aim torpedo bearing..

You could be like me and fire torpedoes at German ships . Luckily they missed, but I definitely have to work on target recognition as well, mainly not firing from too far off

Is there any no-foot-sound mod available which works with TWoS!? I mean the footsteps you sometimes can hear when using the map. Or is maybe someone able to create a sound mod which delete this footsteps.

I like the sound. For me is immersive. There is a mod for "no foots" sounds, and I think is compatible.

Somewhere....If I find it, I will post the link.

Finally found my first merchant vessel. Would have sunk it with torpedoes if I had identified it right, in my excitement I chose the wrong one, so the range was all messed up.

Luckily I saved right as I spotted it, so tomorrow I shall try again! To good hunting!

Steel Captains, You can check Subsim download section for a new regular TWoS update.
The update is named "v2.0.4a" because it will add only one fix (clouds visible underwater).


Enable the update anytime/anywhere and continue your campaign...

The bug can also be seen trough periscope so the update wouldn't hurt even pro captains...

Show some respect and buy Vecko (vdr1981) a beer, Paypal donation is in footer of any of his posts

This modpack ultimately create the best sub sim ever (in my oppinion) and even if there's a lot of work of modders which created partial mods, Vecko is compiling them together into one simply installed and tested consistent piece and supports us for years!

just few of SH5 players made it so far to find a way through so many mods around and create playable version of SH5...
