Cheers in advance.

Hi Major!
to adjust the depth of the crash dive depth to 90m you have to change the value you find in the .cfg file of each uboat. In TWoS this value is "CrashDepth=150" and you must change this value to "CrashDepth=90".
For example the cfg file for the uboatVIIA is "NSS_Uboat7a.cfg" and you find it in:

data\Submarine\NSS_Uboat7a\NSS_Uboat7a.cfg

open this file with a notepad and change the value 150 to 90
in the [Properties] category:

value in TWoS 150
...
[Properties]
PeriscopeDepth=12
SnorkelDepth=14
CrashDepth=150
MaxDepth=180
DiveDepth=300
SurfaceDepth=5
TorpLaunchMaxDepth=20
StormConditions=11.0.4; max wind speed [m / s], max rain intensity [0,1]
...

modified value 90
...
[Properties]
PeriscopeDepth=12
SnorkelDepth=14
CrashDepth=90
MaxDepth=180
DiveDepth=300
SurfaceDepth=5
TorpLaunchMaxDepth=20
StormConditions=11.0.4; max wind speed [m / s], max rain intensity [0,1]
...

so for the UboatVIIb the cfg file to be modified is:

data\Submarine\NSS_Uboat7b\NSS_Uboat7b.cfg

and so on for the other uboats.
I advise you to make a backup of the files you modify. The best thing is to make your own mod that you will activate with JSGME

P.S. You can activate this mod for the North Sea and deactivate it when you are in seas with greater depths.
