Default A new promising overhaul MOD for CW

Hi All. Find a fantastic overhaul mod for CW in steam, "Epic MOD" from Russia, partly translated into English, which introduces some amazing new features like wake homing torpedo, manually release towered array, etc and improves AI significantly.

See the following link

M134 mentioned this last month in another thread and I downloaded it then. It's a big mod to be sure. It and CW Playable Subs mod certainly could duke it out for the inevitable "CWX" ultra-mod title.

It was updated recently, in which multi-language is provided. It also provides metric system with Russian crew voice, which is really fun.

Glad you like it guys) We're trying to make this mod fun and with more content. Thanks to efforts of Rokvam, Frank and some other people it is now with partial translation to English.
Btw, Epic Mod is quite old, but it became avaliable to english-speacking community just recently.

@ETR3(SS) You've served on a sub... Can I ask you a question?

Well, I remember when GWX for SH set such a bar for mods that "DWX" was the title all the Dangerous Waters mods tried to adopt (Reinforce Alert being the first, and eventually earning the status). "CWX" would seem to be the corresponding milestone for Cold Waters.

Thank you. I could say I have little knowledge about submarines and their crews, especially foreign ones, so I've run into one problem.
I wrote a code for crew leveling system, in which once submarine gains a level, a random crew division(?) gains a point and corresponding bonus is applied. On russian ships those divisions are called "boevaya chast'"(боевая часть). I'm using 4 out of 7:
boevaya chast-1 Navigation
boevaya chast-3 Mine/Torpedo Weapons
boevaya chast-5 Electromechanical
boevaya chast-7 Radio engineering

So question is how can I call those divisions(?) in human English)? What similar divisions are on US subs and how do they called?

How it will look ingame:
https://prnt.sc/smry2t
https://prnt.sc/smryhm
P.S It seems that forum do not accept images from LightShot's server, and I do not really want to use an image hosting... So direct links instead of images...

We have Departments and Divisions. Each Department will have several Divisions that make it up. For example Weapons Department would be made of Sonar, Fire Control, and Torpedomen. Looking at your screenshots I'd say you'd want to go with Divisions as your English equivalent.

Thank you for your answer! Could you please suggest a names for divisions? Probably not all divisions are 100% compatible with chosen bonuses, but at least closest variants?

I guess it depends on what bonuses you want to do, with a full list I could match up divisions better.

Well, for now we have only bonuses showed on screens

БЧ-1 - штурманская:
- Periscope autoposition error:
- Periscope autoposition speed:

БЧ-3 - минно-торпедная:
- Tube reload is X seconds faster.
- Noisemaker reload is X seconds faster.

БЧ-5 — электромеханическая:
- System repair speed: + X%
- Water pumping speed + X%
- Self noise reduction: - X db

БЧ-7 — радиотехническая:
- Radar range: + X km
- Signal noise from speed (on sensors monitor)

I think Fire Control would fit this one best.

Torpedomen without a doubt

The first two are general damage control, but could be a good fit for Auxiliary. The last one doesn't fit any specific division.

Navigation for radar range. Signal noise from speed I assume is the sensor degradation from going faster. Self noise reduction and Signal noise from speed would go good together in their own General category. Marine growth on the hull would contribute to both factors.
