Nuke DWX vs LWAMI mods?

Hello guys, I just got Dangerous Waters yesterday. I installed the DWX mod right away then found out about the LWAMI mod.

I found out the hard way I can not run them together so I am wondering what some of the main differences are.

Perfect thanks!

I think I'll stick with the DWX, but I would like to try the increased performance of the LWAMI sonar because as a newbie I'm having a bugger of a time finding anything with the truths off.

In my opinion it is not good choice. That's bacause you will learn "bad habits".

Depends if he is ever interested to play in multiplayer.
But I agree. On top, there's simply no reason not to play with RA/DWX (it is the same, isn't it? So why different names? I'm confused by what the Russians do...)

DWX/RA Mod is both good and bad. I love the ocean environment, the addition of many playable platforms, the addition and adjustment of many weapons, and playable Boomer subs of both Russia and the USA with launchable SLBMs.



-The problem with this mod is the Russian subs are totally unrealistic. The Russian nuke boats have been made unrealistically quiet. I see that at some depths/speeds the US subs cavitate, but Russian subs do not at same depth/speed combo. Try it....(Makers of this mod obviously give this mod an unrealistic Russian advantage in sensors/quieting by my testing of things)



-Super cavitating torpedoes in real world stocks is minimal, but in mod....Russian AI units use these as front line weapons. Again..not realistic at all. Maybe this has changed in the real world? And warhead is unrealistically powerful. Do these simulate nuke warheads? Again...not realistic.



-Russian subs again are too quiet. All sources in real world show US and UK nuke subs having a decisive edge in quieting and sensors against Russian nuke boats. Russians in real world have advantage in diverse option of weapons. Only latest build of Akula have quieting advantage "at low speeds only". This mod fails at this reality.


You of course can use DWedit to fix some of the glaring issues if you have the time...

Check your PMs. I think that's what you're looking for?
You can also find the older version of DWX here in the downloads or over at Bill "subguru" Nichols' site but RA gives you so much more.
