and don't forget there could be a US campaign in their operation zone southeast of Ireland too, so I think this is the right forum too, and yes, more traffic.

nice work on the Sandalwood.

I like!
Maybe, and just maybe, when TSWSM v1 and v2 is released, we can help you expand this mod into a version of TSWSM!?!

If I hadn't become a student lately I'd have been happy to help you, but I'm a little short on time ATM...

I guess you're right. I missed the part of surface warfaring and Pacific missions.
And yeah, more traffic in this part...

And I do look forward to some WW1 action too for a change....

Good to hear, but is there any chance of adapting the model for the U-19, U-35, and other more modern boats? We really need to start work on their exteriors. Don't take this the wrong way, but as Deamon pointed out the U-1 saw little service.

FYI I will be drawing up a more detailed "plan of action" so that the work's a little less haphazard. Expect to receive it by PM soon.

I just found a nice (but tragic) clip on Youtube commemorating the "Lusitania" sinking. I might like to use something similar to replace the starting menu movie. After all, a bunch of swarthy American sailors will look a little bit out of place in a WWI mod.

Oh, and one quibble - in the movie at 1:00 it looks like U-20 has two torpedo tubes on her starboard side, implying a total of 4. My sources indicate she had only two forward TT.

Iam...probably you have already noticed that the underwater scenes are taken from U-571 and the u-boot depicted is nothing more than a VIIC. If you want a good ww1 U-boat reproduction search into youtube for the movie Britannic, ( fanta-historical movie based on the sinking of titanic's sistership in the first world war). The U-boat is very good, it seem to be the same class of Max Valentiner's U-39.

Congratulations for the idea of creating a ww1 mod...good luck!

Thank you very much. Again, we really need scans of the middle-war U-Boats like U-19, U-35, and U-87 that were common & medium-sized. Very important for players who aren't interested in cruiser subs or tiny boats with two torpedoes.

I hope this project indeed comes to be...are these surface ships actually working in the game yet?

and a small note about lusitania, it as indeed carrying a huge number of rounds of ammunition contrary to what the British said at the time, so it was indeed a legitimate target. Such is the sad state of truth in war.
