You can install RA next to Lwami.
Nobody play serious MP sessions with LwAmi - this mod is almost dead. Also some "features" of LwAmi aren't realistic like very strong broadband.

RA FOR MULTIPLAYER
+ very good enviroment (for example layer, bottom, ice etc.)
+ outstanding settings for weapon
+ very good weapon control
+ modification of TiW messages
+ rich ocean fauna
+ new sensors (photonics masts, laser)
+ many playable units
+ still developed
+ very good for designers "West vs East" type scenario
+ good manual for weapon
+ community
+ AI subs can attack passive and active torpedoes
+ AI sub can use own active sonar for detection

- longer HF sonar for "russian subs" than written in USNI reference
- narrowband is main sonar mode (but this is realistic)
- manual for weapon - have to read this because weapon settings are different than in vanilla



LWAMI FOR MULTIPLAYER
+ nice looking broadband (like in holywood movies)
+ some fleets have lots of units (for example Iran)
+ good "layer"
+ better for single player mission designers (more small surf and air units, more countries)

- too long range of detection for sonobuoys
- lack of playable units
- painfull for balancing MP missions because lack of units for both sides
- nobody play MP with LwAmi
- dead over 5 years
- AI subs use only active sonar torpedoes with both active/passive homing

Great mod comparison P7. I pinned your post to my discord server so that all can see.

Let's get some numbers and let some fish lose!

Debatable, if not factually wrong.
RA offers so much more. So, so much more for designers.


I will try to attend. Since Tunngle isn't required anymore, why not.
BTW, anyone fond of multi-station platforms (in theory, not for this wednesday). Is there a way to actually share a station instead of 'blocking' it?
It seems when player 1 holds the F2 station for example, Player 2 will never be able to access it, let alone use it - which is a shame. Or is there some way?

Always thought about crewing a boat with ~3 people and role play a chain of command with authentic lingo. Could be fun!

Nope, that's how it goes. If you're playing by yourself, for example, and forget to assign all the stations to yourself, you won't be able to access those stations. It's rather unfortunate lol.

RA now installed with no issues. Well, other than that the enemy is now extremely trigger happy. They fire almost a full volley of torps at me the second they detect me! So I'll try to hook up if I have the time either tomorrow or this weekend.

You can stop by anytime and we can go over your config to be sure it will work.

Ok, so I've created an account on Discord as well. Same name as here on Subsim.

Is voice the preferred method during multiplayer sessions?

Do I also need that Tunngle thing? Or how do I connect?

Installing Tunngle was a mistake. After restarting, my computer is misbehaving badly. I had to unplug and reconnect my mouse to get it to work. Firefox refused to start for about five minutes. Everything is really slow all over. Slow to load. Oh well, what's done is done.

Can we sticky this so it doesn't get lost?
