[REL] STzSinkingShipsFix

STzSinkingShipFix released!
------------------------------

In several of my patrols, I have noticed some ships seem to have a great deal of difficulty navigating heavy seas. How many times have you approached a juicy target that has no apparent damage, only to hear the creak and groan sound that tells you the ship is slowly sinking? What's more, if you put an eel into her, you frequently don't even get credit for the kill?!! How unfair is that!? :p

This mod is designed to end the sinking ship bug that exists for ships like the Tramp Steamer, Granville Type Freighter, Landing Ship Tank, and others once and for all! Simply unzip the file to your MODS folder, install via JSGME, and enjoy! As a special treat, even though it doesn't have a sinking problem, I have made some non-graphic adjustments to the C3 Cargo so that it doesn't look quite so bulky and out of place next to all of the other merchant ships.

I hope you enjoy this mod. If there are any other ships that you feel have that "sinking" feeling, please let me know and I will try to fix them, too. For example, please note that I have not looked at any of the warships yet, so warships are not included in this fix. If there is enough interest, I will consider working on them, as well. Finally, please direct any questions, problems, or criticisms to me in this thread. I look forward to your feedback! You can get my mod here: http://hosted.filefront.com/SubTypeZero/

Good hunting!

STzSinkingShipFix2.1 released

I have just updated the sinking ship fix to include the HMS Aquitania, the Large Troopship, and the Ocean Liner. Hopefully, these ships should no longer slowly come to a stop and sink when undamaged. Please note that my changes do not alter the graphics of any ship in the game, just the "mass" value and sometimes the "gc_height" value in the .sim file so the ship is less likely to take on water in high seas.

This mod is designed to replace the .sim files of the selected ships in both 1.4b and GWX 2.1, but should work with any mod, with the exception of the LifeBoats&DebrisOptionalFiles mod (optional neutral bouyancy mod) because of changes to the .sim files of the selected ships.

Thank you VonDos for kindly allowing me to use your .sim file for the Cunard passenger liner as a starting point for this version of the mod.

Version 2.1 includes all of the ships already contained in 2.0, plus three additional ships.

Or, are you saying you don't want the additional ships included in 2.1? :hmm: If you want to get rid of the three additional ships in 2.1, just delete the folders for these ships. The folder names are NLUS, NPPL, and NLPL. (Be sure to disable the mod first)!!

If you are uncomfortable deleting stuff, I have already provided separate links for both 2.0 and 2.1.

EDIT: Now I see what you mean by version 1.2. Version 1.2 is for my TrampSteamerFix. Both STzSinkingShipFix 2.0 and 2.1 replace and add to the TrampSteamerFix. Don't use the TrampSteamerFix mod anymore since it only contains fixes for the tramp steamer and is out of date, to boot. I will edit the readme file to try and make that a little more clear.
