DESCRIPTION

This simple mod halves the range of airborne magnetic anomaly detection (from 1000 to 500 yards), making them buzzers somewhat less vicious and psychic but still dangerous to your precious sub.

It's based on Xenophobia's research and the following bit of documentation, which states realistic aircraft MAD ranges are in the order of 500 metres:

Cold Waters deals in yards, but that's close enough.


INSTALLATION
  • The mod's structured with JSGME in mind, so the ZIP file can be directly extracted to "Cold Waters\MODS" and then activated via JSGME's interface. I recommend creating an "override" folder within "Cold Waters\ColdWaters_Data\StreamingAssets" beforehand, to avoid unnecessary JSGME warnings.
  • Alternatively, you can dive a little deeper into the ZIP and extract the "override" folder into "Cold Waters\ColdWaters_Data\StreamingAssets".

500 meters is about 1000 yards btw. And newer MAD can supposedly work for up to 1Km away.

Scratch that. Got my imperial units mixed up. 500 Meters is about 500 yards. MAD can however go up to 1000 meters.

In 1984?

This document (page 3) from 1976 puts the best MAD range around 1550ft, still under 500 metres.

The one I referenced on the description makes the following statement:

"The function, then, of airborne MAD equipment is to detect the submarine-caused anomaly in the earth's magnetic field. Slant detection ranges are on the order of 500 meters from the sensor. The depth at which a submarine can be detected is a function both of the size of the submarine and how close the sensor is flown to the surface of the water."

You can make it 547 yards, so it will be cca 500m
