Yup. Thankfully now, you've got everything short of FM sonar.

More precisely in stock SH5 v. 1.5 sonar slots exist only on Gato-class sub...

Just sayin'.

Thanks to lurker I've made some real progress. To use construction work as a metaphore....

- In the next day or two, i should have this "house" framed up completely.
- Will probably take me another week or two to hang the sheetrock.
- Will take anywhere between a few days to a week to mud, caulk and paint.

That ill be version 1.0

The hardwood baseboards, chair railing, wainscoating, and what not (IE Detail work) will come later.

So, im guestimating ill have a release in three weeks or so, if i don't fall down dead before then.

Finished hashing out the flotilla arrangements this morning. Just have to test it now to make sure things are transferring right.

Here's how this will play out.

Career option 1: " Sea Trials"
Sea Trials.
StartTimeInterval=1942-03-10, 1942-03-15
- will be similar to the sea trials in TMO.
- You will be transferred to the 10th flotilla upon completion.

Career option 2: "Opening Moves"
10th flotilla
StartTimeInterval=1942-09-01, 1942-09-05
- 9D2's were in this flotilla breifly for one month before being transferred to the 12th.
- im thinking of using this flotilla as an opporunity to get a caribean patrol in.
- Your base will transfer to the 12th flotilla in one month.

Career option 3: " South Atlantic and Beyond"
12th flotilla
StartTimeInterval=1942-10-01, 1942-10-05
- get a few patrols into the south atlantic and around the cape of good hope, returning to france
- You will later be give a mission to travel to penang, IXD2's will be transferred to Monsun group 1. The premise here is to send you to the far east, and do this base change/flotilla transfer while your enroute, so you make the journey like the real boats did.
- You will eventually find yourself in Monsun group 1 (first wave of boats sent to the far east ) stationed of penang

Career Option 4: " Into the far east"
Monsun group 2 ( This is the second wave of monsun boats )
StartTimeInterval=1944-02-01, 1944-02-05
- Starts in france,
- Base change to Jakarta after one month


Career option 5: "The far east"
Monsun groups 1 and 2
StartTimeInterval=1944-03-01, 1944-03-01
- this exists purely as a way to start in either the first or second monsun group, bypassing the journey to get there. However, this career option starts in march 44, so you'll have missed quite a few years of the war.

Updated first post with some screenshots. Probably won't be posting any more "carrots" for awhile. Sort of a waste of time when i could have been working and making progress instead.

When you do release this Ducimus could you please give a list of recommended mods as well as essential mods please, since there are so many to otherwise go through.
Cheers.

I am done with SH5

In anticipation of this new MOD, I have removed the SH5 DVD from my NAS-DVD 6 disk changer and replaced it with SH4 Wolf's of the Pacific and SH4 U-Boat Mission prepairing for clean install.
Quote:
Clean SH4 + SH4 UBM 1.5 install complete and ready to go.
Seriously, after playing (pre-order) SH5 I feel I have been raped. So many problems, so much potential that can not be accessed. Consitant CTD after prolonged run times (4+ hours). The "No Internet Connectiion: Game Play Access Denied" and the game action freeze Auto-Save feature that always happens when I approach a convoy or task force I never figured out how to disable.
I don't think I was totally ripped off but I do not think I should pay money for a product that IMO, barely meets Beta-Test criteria.

Looking forward to your new MOD.

Thanks!
