New to SH5: help!
Hi. I'm new to the forum and to SH5. I did play SH4 (TMO) extensively but am having a hard time making the shift to a U-Boat.
I've installed a number of mods including ui-boat. Could someone offer a few tips or point me toward a tutorial about how to use the TDC in manual mode with the gauges in the ui-boat mod? I don't speak German and am unclear even what the gauges do.
Even a translation for the following terms would be helpful:
Thanks in advance.

While I am not familier with that particular mod, (I use the "Multiple UI and TDC byTheDarkWraith") I would suggest going to the SH5 mods workshop forum where you'll find all the most recent mods with the threads for reading up on them.

Ramitaylor, Dogfish has it right. Unless your fluent in German, at least initially until your comfortable with SH5, I would follow his advice and check out what has to be one of the most popular MODs ever for SH5. In variety, flexiblity, and usability it has , in my opinion, no equal so far.
Here is the MOD's briefing sheet which describes the MOD in great detail. Read it carefully;
After you've read about it you can download the MOD here;
If you've got thirty or forty hours to kill, curl up with a box of bon-bons and read all five hundred pages or so about the mod in this thread;
Give it a whirl. If you don't like it you can always uninstall it. I don't think that's going to happen, though, once you tried it!

1. running track
2. of direction
3. opponents ride
4. position angle
7. straight running
8. scattering angle (salvo spread angle?)
9. Zietrichtung (something to do with direction?)
10. Sucswinkel (? )
11. heading angle
I'm sure someone can offer a better translation than Google.
