When I receive a radio convoy report, if the heading is ENE, does it correspond roughly to 67-68 degrees or is it anything between 45 (NE) and 90 (E)?

From the next update every item you sellect from the equipment page will have clear and unambiguous (with BIG LETTERS) English translation which is impossible to miss. In your campaign the translation will become visible only after new campaign start though since the old descriptions is already embedded in your gamesaves... Here is a small example...

Interesting. Many thanks!

So to plot an intercept course, do you take the middle value (67) and then once near do 4 bearings?

Yes, that is already the technique I use (I do like your channel, by the way, very informative), I was just unsure if I should eyeball the WSW, ENE etc. or use its specific value. Sadly at times it doesn't work, possibly because the convoy changed speed and/or course.

@vdr1981

I made some fixes to TWoS Schute_M1 aka small tender - replaced the low res immobile sailors with SH5 crew, fixed ship wake and damage zones and gave it an AO texture. Here's the result (spoiler tags because of large images):

 




If you like this version, here's the download link for modified ship:

That look really nice Kapuhy, thanks!
I'll have to do some stability tests first in order to verify that everything is OK. Then I'll add it in through the regular update...
