Support I am curious about

Could someone please put me straight on the following questions please?

1. I read that every time I order my crew to the deck gun my watch officer loses moral. Is this true?

2. I also read that if I load a game save that I initiated that also affects moral. Is this true?

3. Can my crew gain experience by carrying out drill crash dives, etc?

4. If I switch off one engine on the surface can I still recharge my batteries?

5. Does switching to one engine save much fuel?

Thanks in advance

Of course not...

2. I also read that if I load a game save that I initiated that also affects moral. Is this true?
I never noticed that. Where did you read that?

3. Can my crew gain experience by carrying out drill crash dives, etc?
Not really...

4. If I switch off one engine on the surface can I still recharge my batteries?

5. Does switching to one engine save much fuel?

Engine/shafts selector is mostly just a demonstration of TDW's modding abilities. There isn't much use of it in normal gameplay...

I can speak for the one shaft engines. It does seem you save fuel when using them!

I’ve tested this on many patrols. The percentage of fuel does tend to go down less. How much... unknown but I’ve saved more fuel this way.

Again, I don’t know the specifics but I believe it does save fuel.

I am watching all your videos, they are superb and it was one of those that prompted me to ask on the forum. I also downloaded your "Bible" to read on my nexus when on long patrols. Enjoying it. Still thinking about getting a dedicated clock - maybe a bit too hard core for me

If you swtich or automatically go into battery reloading mode, you should wait for the message 'battery reloading' in the message box, and the battery icon in the engineer dialogue option not blinking before you go higher than TC 64, otherwise batteries will not reload, this is a finesse of TDW modlist - and most likely also TWoS.
