Known Issue
1. Because I do not understand German and French My enhanced Mod just changed the English Parts. Please chose the English text Language and keyboard settings in Option menu

2. The diesel engine animation will stopped after submerged even you raise the Snokel

3. Can’t access the cameras located in the conning tower when enable the Full interior mod (except by moving camera up the ladder by using the free interior Camera).

4. The valve stem animation only related to the telegraph command. If you draw a route on the Navigation map and the U-Boat ahead automatically at the standard speed from docked status, the valve stem will still at the idle speed. Also every time you load the saved game, the valve stem animation will back to the idle speed regardless what speed you saved before.
Just click the telegraph again with the wanted speed to refresh the valve stem animation to fix

For the Install guide and Optional mod introduction, please read the read me file after unzipping.
