Default Playable Type XXIII for GWX3.0

Here is a playable Type XXIII for GWX3.0 in Campaign, Single Mission and Multiplayer modes.

This addition to the choice of U-boat available to the player is well overdue IMHO and should compliment the Biber if my/our mate ever finishes it.







From the readme:

Playable Type XXIII for GWX3.0

This is not an official GWX mod.

This mod is a standalone and should not be incorporated with any other mod in GWX3.0.

This mod is meant solely for those who wish to play a career, single mission or multiplay map using a Type XXIII.

Enable via JSGME.

In single player, or multiplayer mode choose the XXI option.

This mod should not be enabled whilst playing any other U-boat type.

If you are finished with your current Type XXII career or wish to commence or resume another career using a different
U-Boat type......DISABLE THE TYPE XXIII MOD!!

The player cannot purchase, upgrade or transfer to a Type XXIII.

Whilst this mod is enabled, the Type XXI will not be available to the player.

In career mode if used with SH3 Commander untick the Historical U-boats availability dates
and choose 11th Flotilla Bergen from anytime during April 44 onwards.

The first XXIII was launched in April 44 and the first operational patrol commenced
in January 45. The XXIII is available from April 44 to allow a sustantial (if not historically correct)
career for those who want it.

The schnorkel takes well over a minute to raise or lower (better historical accuracy IMHO).

Don't forget to put the hydrophone guy into his position.

This mod has not been as extensively tested as the official GWX mods so please bare that in mind
if you discover any anomalies.

Much credit and appreciation should go to Steibler, Dietrich, Tomi_99, Flakmonkey, Mikhayl, Kptl_KUrtz and the GWX Team
for the concept and development of the Type XXIII in SH3. If I have missed anyone out please let me know and I will
gladly add you to the list of credits.

I'd also like to thank a great set of guys (PaulH513, mrwho1, magick1971, REBEL2 and franz3) at the multiplay site comsubcommand
http://www.comsubcommand.spruz.com/ for testing this mod and ensuring its compatability in career, single mission
and multiplay modes.

The multiplayer testing was carried out using the Official GWX3.0 Online MP Gaming Mod http://www.filefront.com/14157171/Official-GWX3.0-Online-MP-Gaming-Mod.7z/

SINK EM ALL!!

Pretty similar, they weren't meant to be deep diving boats, but more for coastal waters operations.

"Dwarf"....You should have listened to your mom when you were younger and eaten all your dinners

Just got finished making a custom coastal map for the XXIII and I will try it out with the other MP captains soon. It will be a sneaking in map with a few surprises, should be good fun to see how we do.

Thanks again Jim and the rest of the crew at GWX for all your time and efforts to bring us a new playable sub.

Much appreciated

Many thanks to all that were involved in creating this very nice little type23 U-boat! It not only looks mean but it is a real killer sub too! Good hunting!

Thats probably kinda my fault, i screwed up the bridge floor level on the original model (the blueprints didnt show any scale so i guessed ).

To avoid floating watch crew, every modder that has worked with the model since has placed them on the floor, leaving you feeling a bit short!

I`ll have to make an add-on to give you a cardboard box to stand on!!

Happy to see "Type XXIII" and "GWX 3.0" being mentioned in the same sentence with a thumbs-up! Have been using NYGM's files on top of GWX for some time to steam with the 23, and while there seemed to be no weirdities, enabling this feels much more comfortable.

Bravo Zulu!
