NYGM3_6F, it is May 1944 and I just was attacked and sunk while snorkelling by an invisible aircraft with the observation periscope raised and at 1 x TC.

Currently using NYGM, no enemy aircraft are visible on the map even with "No Map Updates" disabled. The problem is when snorkelling, you have no way of knowing when an enemy plane comes within visual range.

There is a "Restore God's Eye View" mod but I do not want that, I just want to be able to spot enemy planes on the map using the periscope alone. You can do this is GWX3 with "No Map Update" disabled.

Any help anywhere? Thanks in advance.

There is a .tga file for aircraft that is probably disabled with no map update enabled. There is for single ship contacts in the same situation.

Maybe look for that and reactivate it in it's relevant folder. But then that may have them always show up one the map, scope or not....

Ok thanks, have found what may be the offending file and replaced it with one that should be less offensive. Will create a new late-war career and see what happens. Cheers.

EDIT
Will confirm for all of you late-war career aficionados that swapping out the ...\NYGM\data\Menu\Gui\Units\UnitAir.tga file with stock or that found in GWX3 restores the airplane icon to the map view when the Map Updates option is in effect.

NYGM is still an amazing mod after all this time.


I have a question for the expert mod programers.


1. My mod list is shown in (6) below.

2. I am trying to have the watch officer only give out bearing info while on the surface and not bearing and range. I have been unsuccessful with coding this change.

3. I have done the following change to ACM-GUI Reloaded-h.sie's Edition (Commands_en.cfg) and enabled via JSGME. Result: no change.
This from the esteemed "Bilge_Rat" dated: 12-26-2012, 01:16 PM. (link: https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/arc.../t-200812.html)

ok, found it, it was in the MENU.txt file.

changed line 4616 from:

4616=Nearest visual contact at bearing %03.Of, range %. Of %s!

to

4616=Nearest visual contact at bearing %03.Of!

now I only get the bearing and not the range. Its already that way in RFB.

Thanks everyone.
4. Any expert ideas what I missed?
5. Thanks in advance and I suspect NYGM will have another 20 years of use .Everything else runs rock solid stable and fun.

6. Mod list.
Win10. 16GB RAM.

Current mod list for my NYGM install.


Of interest, I am using a 34" monitor and the old stock resolution is "good enough". Not bad.

Also the GUI used below is related to AMC reloaded and the old OLC. Part of the goal of the Hsie AMC reloaded variant was to be compatible with NYGM.

This also has the old "dark files" built in. In this case I think it helps keep the lack of high resolution, tolerable.

Again, while not a high res setup. Not bad; playable and fun.

Interesting little event with La Rochelle. Type VIIC.



Twice around the circle x area (going by memory), ran aground. Took damage.





3rd time, stuck to the escort ship's tail (the plotted track) and got out to sea safely.



The blue vertical line is a rough (inaccurate) location of the minefield.



Otherwise everything works perfect.



My mod list during this event below.
