Easy fix. As Anvar said, simply make the light available at any date you wish. You can find the light in the plane's .eqp file.
Copy that file, delete the light from it, and use it until the date desired for the light to appear.
Put the .eqp file with the light in a SH3 date folder or make a mod for JSGME and add it at the date desired.
The same can be done to replicate the end of u-boats carrying topside torpedoes in 5/43, via the sub files.

It is already fixed. Will be in version 1.46

I find that this is quite present in onealex. from 1943 onwards, it is no longer a walk in the park and can even be painful to play.
it is good.

1943 brought aircraft radar more into play vs. ship radar. Even in 1942 commanders found surface attacks much more difficult due to ship radar. Also, though the game doesn't simulate it, escorts routinely used ship borne huff duff units to chase down sub bearings when they were around convoys radioing convoy info. to BdU/other subs well before 1943.

No zoom
In the ship camera view (Key <), is the Zoom function (mousewheel, #73 in Commands_en.cfg) working for anyone?

It's listed in-game by F1, but the mousewheel doesn't zoom the view.

I'm not referring to the ability to move the camera closer via up/down arrow, which isn't zooming and as the camera comes closer, produces a rather distorted perspective. It's ultimately a matter of taste but at the minute, it's like taking a portrait photo while using a wide-angle lens instead of the preferred short telephoto. The former is fine for 'landscape'-type views which emphasise your boat in is wider environment; but the latter is better if you want a view which emphasises the boat (and we have some lovely boats in this mod).

I've tried copying across various combinations of the camera-related files (starting with cameras.dat) from other installs where the zoom function works properly; no joy.

I installed OneAlex by unzipping the complete archive to a new folder outside Program Files (x86) (not onto an existing SH3 install) and used Multi SH3 to create a fresh folder for the career etc files in My Documents, and all else seems fine (it's a great mod).

I've Pm'ed the author and know of one other user who has the same issue; but it would be good to know if this is a universal situation or if anyone who is bothered by the lack of this zoom function has a fix.

Thanks Anvar. But zoom still doesn't work. Weird. There isn't a Commands_en.cfg anywhere other than in SH3/data/cfg so its not as if I'm editing the wrong file.

I have the same entries for 73 and 74 in my other, GWX install (except just Context 1) and zoom is fine there. Even copying those entries over to OneAlex install's Commands_en.cfg didn't work. I tried copying over also any file with 'Camera' in it, one at a time, no joy. It was like they were being ignored.

The same 'Key' line is used in three other assignments unrelated to zoom, but those lines are commented out, so there can't be a conflict.

Strange. A second player on SimHQ to whom I recommended this mod has also confirmed mousewheel zoom, tho listed in-game under F1, doesn't work for them, either.
