You can still use the "max range at current speed" command trough navigators and WO interaction menus.

That's right...KSD medals and awards are historically accurate.
In SH4, you can "cheat" the realism to put 100% to a 0% realism (only for renown and awards), so you sink high tonnages and receive a lot of awards. Never see if this is possible in TWoS, so if you play 100% realistic but tell the game you are playing as 50% realism, for the same tonnage you receive more awards. This is how works in SH4 "cheated".

Regards.

Hello
I would like to ask whether it would be a big problem to replace the German supply ships for Operation "Paukenschlag" for submarines. I think it would be more historically true. If the memory does not lie so much about destroying the surface water carriers in the Atlantic, it happened not long after the sinking of the Bismarck.
I would still like to comment on the morale of the crew. That's very unbalanced in my game. If a submarine gets damaged during an escort attack, it is definitely the entire crew is working at a hundred percent to eliminate the damage and penetration of any water into the submarine. It is unthinkable that he refuses to meet the order for more crew to be repaired, even if he is living. See Das Boot.

Importing new subs into the game has proven to be very difficult. That's why no one has ever done it.

Why did you allow your Chieff to loose all of his moral points then? In my patrols he is eager to work even after 30 days at sea.
I talked about in game moral/fatigue mechanics so many times guys that I'm starting to sound like a broken record.

However, I'm redesigning this part of the game right now because it seems that many people just can't handle it. For example, in the future updates Chiefs ability to send more crew to damage control won't cost any moral points , but it will still take one moral point from the rest of the crew and also drastically increase moral degradation as long as "faster repairs" ability is active.
Don't complain here if your cook is not able to prepare special meal for your crew after that...
Play safe and your crew won't let you down...

Ugggg.....so embarrassing.

My grid chart is off screen. How do I get it back? I forgot how.

I can see it at the top of the screen I just can’t grab it.


If I have to delete the draggables to get it back....where do I find the file to delete please?

Hi
thank you for answer. I did not mean a new submarine model, but type VII of SH5. I know this is not true, but it would certainly be more faithful than the German tanker on the east coast of the USA in 1942.
Personally, I did not have any moral problems until the "Paukenschlag" operation. When I take into account the time I need to cross the Atlantic back and forth, the time for combat operations, with three times as much as I need, so the total time far exceeds my 30 days. And although I've sank quite a bit, the crew of BRT has beaten my own way and I could do what I wanted to raise the morale of the team.
Now I'm just heading for Gibraltar to South America (Distant Waters), and I'm afraid I'll have the same moral problem.

Thanks Fifi...

I took away the TDWdraggables but that just messed up my screen.

Help! I need my grid tool!

What do I do?

Maybe you've deleted wrong files? Game reinstall maybe?

Vecko, how long convoy escorts can depth charge you?
I guess only few hours, because they canít leave the convoy alone for too long?
Last time they hunted me for 3 hours...

In counter part, i think task forces hunting submarines can stay a lot longer?

In general, convoy escorts will stay with you as long as they can they detect you with their sensors or until convoy moves away to a sufficient distance. They will then return to convoy protection duties.

Pretty much the same will happen with TF which have capital ships in it...

But, dedicated destroyers only hunter/killer groups will be really nasty. They'll stay with you as long as they can detect you , even occasionally. The keys are depth, silence and prayers that the game didn't spawn one destroyer with especially skilled sonar/ACDIC operator...

In HT 1940, I could leave five nasty destroyers after 6 hours of silent running at 1 knot and 140 mts. depth. I navigated to the opposed direction from the convoy so finally the escorts returned to them and I escape with some damage.

Ok, that was what i was thinking. Pretty much logical in fact.
So submarine hunter groups are to be avoided by all cost

I try to know also what kind of destroyers are hunting me from now on.
Just because some are less dangerous... like VW?
They donít have the depth charges throwers all around, i think...
Have to check in the museum

I'm trying to fix those messed up crew efficiency bars and also to add couple of more but it is not an easy task. I just can not understand what were developers thinking while programming them. It's a complete mess with totally illogical dependencies. I hope I'll be able to bypass some of their nonsense with few tricks of mine.

Anyway, this is how it will look slightly modified crew efficiency page in the future


I'm going to revise once again and adjust positive and negative bonuses for for all abilities to be as realistic as possible. Efficiency bars may not follow this 100% exactly but they should be accurate enough to give you rough idea what is going on in your sub...

I also may add optional mod for disabled moral costs as well (yes guys, you won ).
