Advice Needed, Manual Navigation
After reading some old posts by Corsair and Kumando I realy want to try this
Managed to find a file via a posted link. however it is a file only with no readme.
The file is "NSS_Uboat9b_shp.tga"
Do I just place this in the submarine folder for each sub overwriting the tga files for each one ? then edit the map as per Kumandos instructions ?
Or is there more to it than that ! ?
This is only good for the 9b right ?
Is it possible to hide the other boats or is it the 9b only?
Any help appreciated

You can use the .tga file you have for any of the sub folders since it's just a transparent file. Just rename the existing tga file in each folder to something like *.bak and then copy your NSS_Uboat9b_shp.tga file to each folder giving it the original name of sub folder you are in. I only command 7b's and 7c's in my careers so I did the following:
1) Rename NSS_Uboat7b_shp.tga to NSS_Uboat7b_shp.bak
2) Copy NSS_Uboat9b_shp.tga to folder and rename as NSS_Uboat7b_shp.tga
1) Rename NSS_Uboat7c_shp.tga to NSS_Uboat7c_shp.bak
2) Copy NSS_Uboat9b_shp.tga to folder and rename as NSS_Uboat7c_shp.tga
By the way, this game rocks when using manual navigation with manual targeting at 100% difficulty. Just try not to go above 32x speed since the helmsman has a hard time keeping a straight course in bad weather (though I like a little of this since I pretend it's course drift due to sea currents and such). I usually just right click the navigation officer to take over his position when using time compression. That way you have a great view of the clock on the wall and the map that may show ship positions received via radio and then you can pull out of 32x time quickly (can't go above that speed when at this station).
Hope this helps.
