I don't want to give away secrets, but there are at least 2 channels into Truk Lagoon that are not mined or guarded by nets in mid-1943. Not saying which ones.

(maniacal laughter) - don't forget the air patrols, as well as harbor patrols... The flyboys can see you almost anywhere you travel in the lagoon, since there are only a few "holes" to get deep enough in...

That's what I was alluding to with the pensive "thinking" "smilie"... - I don't know. The game chooses that "default" for us, and I don't know if it is a "requirement" of the coding, or maybe just a choice they made based upon "historical" information of most US subs having aft-mounted deck guns early-war - but I haven't found a way to alter that "choice"... ??

Just the addition of the dual-deck gun set-up and it "defaults" to the rear gun?... I've looked at the dual 5" 25 UpgradePack set-up, and it doesn't list "aft" or "bow" for either of the guns... again like a game "default" at work here... but it uses the M02 Position when it does that. The fore mounts are M01... Either way though, there is only one deck gun camera, and apparently, the game chooses for us, preferring the aft position, if available (the last one initialized??). Unless someone knows something more...
well...my fix did not work.

i've checked:
the 5-25 dotSIM file and the dotDAT file
the Weapons.Upc
the Upgradepack.Upc
the Equipment.Upc
UnitpartsGato.upc
Nss_Gato.upc, Sim, Dat, Cam, Eqp

there is no distinguishing feature differentiating the two weapons except for the names of Fore and Aft or Bow and Stern and one is designated as M01 and the other M02.

as near as i can tell, they are duplicated weapons except for their location on the boat.

SHO Re: Stationary ships...

Ahoy..

Whilst on My 10th patrol, patrolling just off Lingyaen (sp?) Gulf, off to the NNW of Manilla, best guess... ran across a ship, sitting stationary.

Tender Heian (snap attached of it complete with lat/long coords in the ships sunk log).



Dunno if this was 1 of those ships you found & corrected or not.. if not, then will need to check into it then...

End Report.

M. M.

Yes, the Heian Tender was one of our previous "victims"... - All dressed-up now for strutting her stuff with a high bow wake... thanks.

Wasn't sure if it did get found during all that poking about or not.. figured I'd post a report.. just in case it did get missed or overlooked.

Default What is this thing escorting a troop ship

What in the name of David Glasgow Farragut is this thing escorting a troop ship in the middle of the Pacific?

wasn't that a beautiful photo-scene?
and it played out very anticlimactically.
we were minding our own business, just looking for some targets in Area 7, when Ol' Bungo displays as just another ship on radar.
when he closes enough for us to recoginize him, my attack team worked the geometry and we were about 4000 yds off his track.
take her down, ahead slow, making our course to intercept.
we arrived a bit early and just waited.
when he closed to 2000 yds, with an AOB of approx 75-80 degrees, we fired.
Bungo Pete, meet my little friend, Mr. Mk18.
You-two, have a good time.

and that, as they say, was that.
He went down do fast that by the time we surfaced, he was gone.
and i so wanted to say "Hi".

Good Day Gentlemen,
I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this question. I enjoy FOTRSU, so I am sing it as I tweak things I am looking into changing an American sub into a German sub that can do German campaigns. I have been comparing the two versions of subs. I believe I can tweak them. My question is have any of you done this? if so, may I ask which files you changed that worked best.
If this is the incorrect forum for this question. Please point me to the correct one.



Thank You
Comder

Comder,

you should probably post this in the next higher forum and start a new thread.

so, you want to drive an American sub in the German Navy? is that your objective?
