I know this is not historically correct, but I like to see some Olympic class liner (troop transport) in TWoS. I have the VonDos Titanic in GWX (SH3), scripted and works very fine. Nice to see (for me) the old lady in SH5....(BTW, I have a Lusitania, too).

The french BB is awesome, looking forward to see it in TWoS.

I see ALL the Museum with v2.09a in one session, without CTDs. Only a little more time to charge the submarines, specially germans. But all works fine. I think this is reflected in campaign and the new ships will work nicely in it. Now doing HT and I can´t see the new ships in ports (I´m in the middle of the Atlantic).

Many thanks for the fantastic work and best regards.

Sorry, that is a feature that I had in mind for a long time, maybe I even discussed it with you a few dozens of months ago, but I had missed your implementation of it. I watched your presentation video btw. I probably might suggest some improvements, like sirens customized by nation (the one heard in your video is actually the red warning used by the British), the warning starting a few minutes before the actual raid and lasting a bit longer, etc, but all in all the the effect sound very cool indeed

What ships? what features? Can I help with them? Maybe we can remove the conflicting features rather than discarding the units that they are found in...

EDIT
Correction...Guns can be added but they will be permanently hidden behind the ship's hull...
Is that one of the stock auxiliary cruisers?
How were those recessed guns supposed to fire (in reality and in game)?

Vecko, I usually follow your install/updates to the letter, however I missed that post of yours and installed the new update from link in your signature.

I didn't see the part about 'Install update in port'.
I installed it during my Atlantic Air Gap patrol....mid Atlantic.

However I didn't have any problems, and I completed the second 48hr patrol zone objective without a hitch.
I didn't see or hear a single ship, but I just put that down to bad luck, and that area being like searching for a needle in a stack of needles.

Hello
I do not think that these two auxiliary cruisers from the basic game (in Mtns Cormoran, Orion) are modeled according to real backgrounds.

What do you mean? Ubi models might not be especially accurate, but thiose ships having their guns disguised or hidden in special recesses of the decks is a fact

Absolutely Correct "Q" Ships being the best Example. These Ships existed prior and during the WW2 Atlantic/Med Campaign





British First World War Q-ship HMS Tamarisk

To Gap: I thought you asked what the real auxiliary cruisers looked like.
Otherwise in combat, these cruisers actually functioned as Q-ships. Their weapons were masked and unmasked immediately before their own struggle. So, in the case of the Ubi-auxiliary cruisers, side aprons would open and guns would fire.
If I could get the weapons and shells on the auxiliary cruisers working, I think it would be really a masterpiece.

Hidden guns can work indeed but parts of the hull designed to hide them can not be opened and that is the problem...

Mostly SH3/GWX ships...The game crashes if certain simact patches are enabled (RPM inertia IIRC). I tried everything including creating new controllers from scratch in goblin but nothing...

Unfortunately there are not game controllers which can be used for hiding guns in their "unmanned state" and unhiding them when the ship enters in alert state. I can think of some workaround methods for making containers and crates to open up when an enemy unit is in firing range, thus disclosing the gun hidden in them, but I have no idea how we could make a recessed gun to be rised and lowered according to needs

Make the "side panel" of the ship part of the "turret" for the gun?

Well, if that's the way it worked (my original question was exactly about that), with some adjustements your idea might work: we should separate the gun doors from the ship model, and tricking the game into thinking that they are the muzzle of a gun pointing straight upward in its rest position, and with training arc set to 0. When/if the ship tried to aim its gun toward a possible target, we would possibly see the hinged door opening. This method is a bit tricky, but it could actually work

Hi Niume, I can't tell you for sure what is wrong with your installation, but those squares are common when New UI's (inluded in TWoS) is enabled and the game is not patched with the Ubi patch 1.2

Hello
So I started a new career and unfortunately I have to report some mistakes in the location of AI ships. At the harbor in the Kiel Canal, a fishing boat is housed in a pier. There is a submarine in Bergen near the bunker at the port pier.
