Description

FotRSU is a great mod but there are still some minor glitches and I'm trying to provide fixes or possible solutions for future test. This add-on is recommended to be activated after Fleetboat Interior Mod, and it will:

1. change crew management inferface: providing new avatars and correct epaulettes of warrent officer. (This part comes from "Rank, Uniform & Insignia Mod (R.U.I.M.) v1.0 for SH4 v1.4 & 1.5 by John W. Hamm". FotRSU already uses the colthing settings of this mod.);


2. change keyboard command assignment. Now: "F" for plotting course, "Ctrl+F" for returning to course, "G" for max range at current speed, "F9" for toggling radio message ("F9 for conning tower" has already been disabled by Fleetboat Interior Mod);

3. restore the missing "T head" of JP Hydrophone;

4. add helmets for gun crew. The watchmen will aslo have helmets during "Battle station" status;


5. restore the red indicator of "test depth" in depth gauge;

6. have the correct crew showing in the command room: restoring the officer and removing the wrong guy from engine room. (Porpoise and S-boat are all right and need no modding);


7. integrate "CSL Pure Stopwatch Mod by ColonelSandersLite";

8. restore the correct occlusion map texture of gato hull and conning tower textures of gato and tambor;

9. restore the missing names of some US naval bases in south Pacific;

10. restore the descriptions of player's rank and increase the requirements of player promotion a little;


11. give the crew a longer but slower process for skill upgrading by promotion. Now the CPOs and warrent officers will also have opportunity to improve their specialities.

12. have complete settings and descriptions of all crew special abilities. (In FotRSU many descriptions of special abilities are missing. I compared the relevant files of Stock, TMO, and FotRSU then made new special ability functions and descriptions based on my own understanding, hoping to get a better balance of reality and gameplay.);

13. reduce the number of Japanese aircraft and pilot skill.(Japanese aircrafts in FotRSU are too powerful. The mod team already notices that and is working on it. Before next release, this may be a temporary sulotion.);

14. restore correct mid-war conning tower of salmon, sargo and tambor subs. And fix the matching issue of surface radar and conning tower.
There are several types of SJ radar mounts. Most fleet boats (Gato, Tambor, Gar) use "supported mount", while Porpoise and Narwhal use "shaft mount". Howerer, Salmon/Sargo use "shaft mount" in early/mid war conn, then shift to "supported mount" in late war conn. That will cause issue and may be the reason why original FotRSU use Gato conn, to avoid the changing of SJ radar mount types, I think.
This patch makes both "supported mount" and "shaft mount" available for Salmon/Sargo, so that players can select corresponding type base on the conn which they currently have.


Since the FotRSU as well as relevent additional mods, such as vickers03's series, are still activly updating, This add-on will also follow any news about them.
