Is there an external camera key? I just finally got sh4 reinstalled after a time away and found Dark Waters. Love what I see so far.

Yeah... F12 key.. I believe... there is also the old fashioned studio movie cam icon, on the HUD while in the command room, as well.. clicking on that icon will show a free cam, and next & previous cam options, as well...

Will probably release new version with new better waves, volumetric clouds and further few adjustments one of these days

Have to test all this yet...

can someone explain how to use Stadimeter in Dark Waters? I mean, i know how to use Stadimeter in general, but in Dark Waters it does not change the range dial for some reason

and another question: there is a "AP_Night_Filter.tga" texture in "Karamazov" folder, is there some button that i'm missing to switch the attack periscope night filter on/off, or is it applied automaticaly?

Sorry, I don't know about that one.

It's not a Dark Waters thing, it's an OM thing (technically a KiUB thing but it was integrated into the OM so it's an OM thing). It's explained in a document - do you have "KiUB User Guide.doc"? (I believe it comes with one of the OM patches and sadly missing from Dark Waters installation).

EDIT: @VDraculaV I've uploaded the file, available in original DOC format as well as PDF format, here: https://gitlab.com/themrwho/stuff

@Fifi, another improvement for the next version perhaps - could you leave the "KiUB User Guide.doc" file in the Support folder please?

For volumetric clouds, there is a known issue in SH4 where the clouds appear only at launch, but after some moving and some TC they just disappear and never come back!

I have found a turn around to always keep them even when moving or TC
But the only way to get them, will be through a little mod for each submarine type...

So i will release volumetric clouds as add-on mod for each submarine you are playing, and will have to be activated on top of my mod.

Problem is at night, they remain too much white for my taste, and have great trouble to decrease that...

Stay tune, it’s not even for this week. It can take some time

Absolutely fantastic job!Clouds and atmosphere are much more beautiful than other mods.


By the way...Once you tune Dark Waters ,may be add traffic at Baltic Sea?

Totally empty this moment.
