Ahoy, bluenarwhal

Give a look then scroll down & find the native rez you have, then go for either imperial or metric as needed... link as follows:

unfortunately, Ubi did not program that into the game.
HOWEVER, there are milch cows.
so, you have that going for you....which is nice.

I think lurker was getting around to doing them, but never actually finished the mod. You can't get them like with Stiebler's or h.sie's, but you can put a submerged AI sub and maybe a surfaced AI sub into convoys, just like in SH3, but you will not get the response that you do with SH3. I think I may have come up with an idea to use in the DynamicMiss file, which SH3 does not have, but I am not certain it will work just yet... Stay tuned FotRSU fans!... lol

Thanks Rick. So putting an AI sub in a convoy won't generate it to attack once the player sub gets in the 3d bubble range ?

In OM & DW, the submerged sub does not have the capability to shoot torps, and of course is not fast enough generally to keep up with a convoy, once the player gets within spawn range, but the surfaced ones might have an active deck gun, I just haven't looked at them. However, they are both Type=200 vessels, and as such are not particularly aggressive. It would be easy enough to copy what CapnScurvy and s7rikeback did with the FotRSU torp guns and deck guns from FotRSU and apply that to DW, then you would have a pack of convoy-attacking doberman pinschers whenever the player gets within range...

Yes, very easy to fall into "Just one more thing to try and then I'll quit for now....." trap !
But really really impressive work !

Default Empty seas

HI!
Baltic Sea Operation is strange because there are not any ships,except German battle cruiser at Danzig bay.Whole Baltic Sea is totally empty at September 1939.Around Britain Isle there are many ships.They are just fine.

ahoy paroni!

yes, this is an unintended feature of SH4 that arises from time to time. we have attempted to fix it but the fix causes other problems.
i'll take another look at it.
