Default USE THE AUTOMATION SCRIPTS!!

For the purpose of testing !! I did a mission in historical missions, attacking a warship fleet that included an aircraft carrier, I sank the carrier, without using the automation script's I fought and dived and was depth charged to death by 4 destroyers -- basically I lost.

In the second try .. I sank the carrier once again and decided to use the script for after attack and turn 180. what the difference was that the boat goes immediately to silent running, and the RPM is at .05 knots while a slow gradual turn is towards heading 180 .. and the boat goes to the depth of 80 meters . was pinged a lot but eventually, the escorts lost contact and I escaped. I advocate using scripts it is nearly impossible for you to set the speed manually at .05 knots -- enjoy All

I'm new to this =)

There are automation scripts related to that? I saw only tutorial/real nav scripts. I need to pay more attention!

Thanks

Setting this script to a Automation key of your choice will activate the script immediately and save you time when you need to use it.

Hmmmmmmmmm.
Come to think of it: TWOS does not have external cameras, so there are a plenty of hotkeys free on the numpad! =)

Yes it has when you use the F2 key.

In the picture you can see the different camera's of which I took this picture to have a look at U47's twin flak guns.
Use the arrow keys to move around and IIRC also the numpad numbers will also work as well.

Not as many as you think because when you press the F1 help key you only see those in view.

There are other working keys allocated but are not being shown.
Some of these keys work when the boat is surfaced and others when submerged.
Test some of the keys next time in your game.
Here are the various Keyboards with allocated keys showing.

Hi CAj
Here is a close up of U47 using the Camera's Arrow keys to zoom in on the Flak guns.

Crew ready for any likely air attack.
