For first time ever in TMO Update, I sunk a Yamato Class BB. Rare find. Took 15 torpedoes over 8 hours.

It is a epic scream lol

Thanks, sinking Yamato was really unexpected and proved the highlight of the patrol, as in 46 days encountered nothing else in patrol area lol. Open ocean area(Philippine Sea), tough to locate targets at times.

Stand corrected on My... estimation of what the date was in My last reply.

Back tracked just a wee bit to 1 of My earlier on, game save points... guess that was a good thing I did.

Paid a bit more attention to all the flash traffic messages flying about...

Midway attack, final message on that, mentioned the Attu & Kiska being infiltrated.

Side shifted My plot course &... sidled it down to come into the Attu Island, just a hair south of the main island, in between that & the 2ndary ones.

Date, currently... is 08/06/42... about 1000 hrs.

Did that course plot, based on that message... which, I didn't see... or failed to see when I was engaged in pushing to get on station.

No problem Have you found any merchant targets yet? Wanting to check it for myself, I had a test career in S boat started in June 42 but edited start date in career file so went out in July 1942, found targets .

Third attack the escorting DD caught my in the calm seas in July 1942, beat my old boat up with a depth charge attack. I survived, somehow. I was not really trying to survive, was a test career.

One oversight, I apparently did not ever add the Battle of the Komandorski Islands in March 1943 as I said. I really could swear I did but I checked the files and its not there and did not show up in game, so not hiding somewhere in the layers lol. I guess i never got around to it, so it is being added and will be in next release .

To keep it on track here, will mention, in passing... that I've been looking into KSD II: Ace edit., which you asked about on the other thread...

In short, last save I did, had NOT ran into any targets of opportunity... yet.

Operative word, being here... YET.

Been kinda busy, floating between... KSD II: Ace, SH3, FotRS, & working on ironing the wrinkles outta WdaD*.... (We dive at Dawn, Brit sub addition in the SH4 lineage. ) soooo... haven't had much opportunity to really roll with the S boat career.

That's not counting tooling about as a Sith/Jedi... or a SFFP Capt., either...

have a bit of info on KSD II, but.. will relegate that to the other thread...

Almost a month after release, had some great feedback and appreciate it everyone.


Something have not heard from others about is the full on night surface attacks in 1944/45. Anyone braved going inside the convoys and attacking? Curious as to your experiences, tactics, outcomes etc. In testing i did fine and in my career with TANG on last patrol (third) was inside screen attacking on night on surface in shallow waters, sunk three ships, was chased, fired on. Quite exciting.

Would say with, preliminary testing, My... figuring, the latter end of the war, should be Aces... from what I've seen thus far.

Now, to see of reconfiguring, with the chats we've had... on those areas to tweak... & this will be golden.

If anyone witnesses the Battle off Samar Oct 25 1944 let me know how it turns out, if any weird issues etc. Looks fine on my end .

Now, when start a career in Asiatic Fleet in 1941....can actually start are Cavite. USS Canopus sub tender is there (blue marker will be corrected) and will have other vessels added. The big air raid of December 10, 1941 on Cavite is scripted, will be refined in forthcoming patch. Thanks Mad Mardigan for the reminder, I forgot to correct the starting location in last release.
