Description
Have you ever wanted to have an authentic, gritty periscope?
Do you like having limited visibility, but the assurance that your game is authentic?
Do you find these questions annoying and derivative?


Then this mod is for you!

THIS MODS THE AMERICAN SCOPE

The purpose of the mod was to get some practice with graphics, and it turned out better than expected. I edited the periscope graphic and smudged it up some, to make it look a bit more weathered.


This works with any mod that doesn't replace the periscope.
(You can still use this mod alongside them, if you prefer this periscope)


WORKS FOR BOTH 1.4 AND 1.5

Superb and thankX.. Our main city has the USS Drum.. ant its scope looks like this.. a little lens dirty ring at the outer edge.. I figure if it is a museum sub and people clean it all the time then a sub in WW2 months out probably looked the same

Hmmm I may be wrong but there may be a bug here- still mod testing it- Anyway after installing it my crew would not comply with anything anymore- could not even get the screws to turn.. I then replaced back the original dds and still the same.. I think the dev who made the scope did not want wis work edited mayby. I even keep a full data folder backup. I deleted the active one and pasted in the backup.. still the same.. crews will not comply. I am doing full reinstall.. no problem-- It don't take long.. would like to see what it is.. I know the mod is just a simple dds texture edit.. It seems to be something about new equipment detected that you have not earned yet or something.. anyway still might be wrong but it happened after mod install right away.

Anyway after a SH4 re- install I tested it again.. I discovered it only affects the from scratch -start a War patrol- or start any quick mission.. at load none of the crew will comply....cant even get sub started .. However-- Saved games are ok... So .. What I did was - after another re-install - first before I inserted your weathered peri- I loaded each war patrol and saved each one at their start.. Then I loaded each quick mission and saved them the same.. Now I have everything in a saved game.. I then load your weathered scope and I just use the saved games and all is great.. I even tested by saving a saved game as I progressed.. Still ok.. There is no more Sir cannot comply- message.. I am going to test my own later to see... The orig DDs is 1 mb and yours is 4mb.. Might be because the dds is to big ?.. who knows.. Thanks
