Now John, you're not supposed to leave it on 24-7... only a couple of sweeps and turn it off... then crash dive as they've found you anyway...

Exactly. "Thank you for the radar BdU ! ".................splash, as it goes overboard as soon as we're out of sight !

I avoid having it installed on the boat and do not use it when it is. Just a magnet for escorts and the like.

You have to click on small green button (bottom left of speed telegraph) and you will see the gauge on the right side!

Thanks Fifi.

One (hopefully) final question: Is there something I can do to make this GUI in English?

great gui mod 'n all, but just a few questions after using it for a few minutes.

how do I enable manual targeting, since you talked about switching between manual and automatic modes?

where do I find the identification book for identifying ships?

I played vanilla sh3 wayyy back and this is my first time actually modding it and this is the only wide gui mod I could get working

2) key N

Fifi, is there a way or place that contains each individual mod/change included in your enhancement above? Some of your changes I like better than others and was hoping that I could pick and choose each individually (great work by the way!).

That’s not the right topic to discuss that, but no you shouldn’t separate what’s inside.
