You need the newer stuff for sure.
I can picture your angle on the tube doors opening!

Plus the Splash shielding and other upgrades!!

Give this man the latest so he can do a REALLY cool vid!!
Thanx privateer!

I started with the movie in February, and did not want to switch in between. But I'm glad new stuff will be available (and already is). Cheers to all the modders! I especially bow on your modding skills (is this english?).

Bye

For the panel position, I liked the previous one but when switching to the navmap or damage screen it got too much in the way.
Anyway even if the 2 GUI seem to have nothing common, Latemail's work helped me a lot to understand how things work in menu.ini and how to add/keep some features, all that a lot faster than before (I made a first attempt 2 weeks ago, it took me 3 days to have a crappy gui that didn't work right...).
Ahoi Mikhayl,

I really agree with you... the gui of OLC has all we need, to steer the boat and fire torpedos in one time - and it's not necessary to change stations. But I think the chronometer of the U-Jagd tool is not needed for an attack with the s-boat ? We don't have the full tool, because we don't need the Attack Periscope. Maybe the stock notepad will be enough - there we're having all datas we're needing to attack a ship: Type of Ship and distance! The normal Stop-Watch in combination with the notepad will be enough ! The rest of the OLC Gui is great! What do you think Mikhayl ?

Edit: @Mikhayl: If there is still help needed to bring the great S-Boat Mod forward - Maybe you need help to modify the messages in campaign data, the menu.cfg etc. and change them for S-Boat Commanding?

Also thanks for the offering, I included a list of the part that need to be translated to german in the new release for anyone who wants to give it a go. However it's still far from definitive so it may not be worth spending time on it.
Ahoi Mikhayl,

wow - am I dreaming ? Mikhayl you rule! The new S-Boat rocks...

Question:
- Does the smoke generator (fog cans) working yet in V.0.9? In a further post you said, that the "deploy decoy" Button ("J") now is ready to switch on the smoke generator ? I gave a Bold to my S-Boat before leaving harbor. But "J" doesn't work.

I keep an eye on the translation list for the german datas! Hopefully you'll have email soon as possible.

I hope that's the only thing I overlooked
Ahoi,

what a pity... Never the less, maybe there will be a chance for the smoke gen in future of the S-Boat Mod... So - because you have forgotten to make it unavailable... I have only to cancel the semicolon in the line of commands.cfg for the bold - to make it possible?

What a shock...

Is it possible to extract the actual, much better looking S-Boot, from your great mod to an other Mod as AI-Schnellboot?
Kind regards.

Loving the new version... I finally got my first destroyer kill on my first patrol with 0.9

Was late at night, no moon, barely spotted the destroyer and charged in at flank. At about 1500m, launched both torpedos in a salvo. The first torpedo passed harmlessly behind the destroyer, but the second detonated directly underneath their screws

Needless to say, after the torpedo blew away the aft of their ship, they were angry...VERY angry. Got their spotlights on me and started firing with their dual cannon turrets, their first barrage hit the aft section of my boat, before I was able to take evasive action. Then I fully realized how bad the situation was... I spotted another destroyer that was following behind the one I torpedo'ed. That one started firing too, and with its third volley it hit the crew quarters. After that volley the spotlight finally lost it's fix on me...might have had something to do with the aft of their ship starting to disappear under the water!! :hmm:

Still wasn't out of the woods yet though, I was low on fuel and had flooding that I knew I wouldn't be able to stop. I kept the engine at flank as long as I could, trying to get my battered S-100 back to Cherbourg before the flooding overwhelmed the crew compartment. About 40km from port I reduced throttle to 1/3 and literally entered Cherbourg just as my chief let me know that we were out of fuel.

Only a 3800t patrol, but man was that fun...wish I was capturing video :rotfl:

Default report on S boat update 0.9 for shiii vanilla, (not mods)

Graphics are beautiful ,, very smooth and runs very very well.

two small notes,

crew skill level bar does not show up in f-7 positions. so you never know quite how good they really are, I can live with that,

when in this mode (f-7) went to silent running (z) two out of 4 trys the program crashed, only once in 4 trys on main screen did it crash on this command. not sure why, so FYI,

still testing other parts ,

seems to want to crash on death screen too,

overall, a beauty of a project. learning a lot by looking at your files.

thanks!!!
