Default Trigger Maru Overhaul (TMO) 2.5

is anyone actively supporting TMO 2.5?
I have not seen Ducimus for a while so it is unclear if he is still among us.
i found an issue between Flotillas and Patrol Objectives that i wanted to pass along.
Please....only reply if you have info on support.
thanks.

Default Photo Mission will not complete

i am trying to figure out why i cannot complete a photo mission to Bandar in Borneo.
the time frame is late March 1942. driving a Sargo out of Fremantle.
the mission specs require closing within 12 km however i have closed to torpedo range, with both scopes up(alternately), and the camera icon will not light.
my thought is that the cause is something simple.
any thoughts?

That is a South China Sea Mission, so the file is "Photo South China Sea 03". The mis file for that does not have any ships set as a photo_target, so you have to find something within the 12km Zone that defines the photo area. That basically covers the point and a little bit of the water area... Not much. So you've got maybe 1/2 of the mouth of the harbor on the south side, and all in the shallows. Photo Value is 20, threshold is 0 (zero) though, so one picture of most anything with a RenownAwarded of 200 or higher should work, or maybe 10 pictures of a fishing boat? But there has to be something within the zone to take a picture of, for the light to light-up. Another thing though - the light does not light unless you lock the target, and hover your mouse over the camera button... Don't forget to have them smile!

yes, that is the mission. and yes, there are ships in the harbor.
i lock the periscope on the target but no camera icon light.

the light just went on in my head. probably from too many hits.

i am used to other mods where the camera icon lights up once you are in range and lock on a target.

forgot to think that other mods do not do that and your statement turned on the light.
thank you. i knew it was something simple.

Default wrong turm

i wish i could figure out why SH4 refuses to assign the correct conning tower.
the date is somewhere during October 1942. Why does my boat still have the early war conning tower when it should have the mid war conning tower?

i am at a loss as to why these things do not kick in on schedule.

Default Have gun, not have gun

check this out.
my Sargo class boat had fore and aft deck guns at the end of mission.

i was offered a new boat and refused the new boat.
shoved off on my next mission and at a critical point discovered that i had a Stern Gun in theory only.
the ghosted Stern gun had to be manned but only the Forward Weapon would fire. it was very weird and never before experienced.

Default No joy on Photo mission to Hiroshima

Driving the USS Narwhal (SS-167) out of Midway, May 1943.
we drew a photo recon at Hiroshima.
Awfully close to Japanese home islands.
we dodge two exiting convoys, hide out overnight (day, actually), sneak into Hiroshima harbor, start taking photos and nothing. i bet i took 10 photos but no success for the Objective.
i saved and exited and reviewed the dotMIS file (Photo Honshu 4) and we should have had a successful mission on the first photo. i know photo missions can be funky just like this because i have experienced this in the past.
anyone else have this difficulty with this mission?

That is basically a "Stock" mission KaleunMarco, and has "35" as it's points for the foto, which means you need a ship with at least 350 renown awarded. If you go in there early enough, a Shokaku Class should be about dead-center of the area. There is a BB just to the west of it, but it is outside of the area, and will not suffice, as most ships in the area will not. They have to be within that circle. Part 2, I would set that "35" to "2" and be done with it. Even the Asashio then would be good enough... Be warned that if you have "duds" enabled, you might shoot a boat-load of torps at them, never get an ASW response, and never sink either of them... very strange... but I did get the mission to complete by reducing the points required down to "2"... never did get it to go with the points at 35, even with the Shokaku there...

@3catcircus, look in the sub-folders of the OTC mod

Ah, ok. I thought maybe this was in addition to what is in the OTC mod's own 16x9 option.

so, which value did you reset?
[Objective 1]
ObjName=Photo Honshu 04_Objective1
Obj=5
ObjType=0
RenownAwarded=350 ****these are the Renown i receive for achieving the objective.
ZoneName=Photo Honshu 04_Zone1
PhotoValue=35 *************are these the points i receive for each photo i take?
MinPhotoValueThreshold=0 ********no idea what this means

ZoneName=Photo Honshu 04_Zone1 = The circle area where the target and the sub must be inside of
PhotoValue=35 *************are these the points i receive for each photo i take? = Eh... yes and no - they are a percentage of the RenownAwarded= line of a ship's Sea folder cfg file, which you do "earn"
MinPhotoValueThreshold=0 ********no idea what this means = That would be the number of pictures, which have to be a multiple of the above... "zero" is easiest, but is actually "1" because that's how computers count... it can be very difficult to get a mission to function correctly between these last two settings...
Setting up FotoOps can be very frustrating to say the least...

so....playing with the parameters...........

what would happen if i set the RenownAwarded to 5000 and left the PhotoValue at 35?


what would happen if i set the RenownAwarded to 350 and changed the PhotoValue to 100?
