Default (REL) Destroyer Depth charge Range Fix

Version 1.1 is up.
This little mod will fix the problem some people get of the destroyers blowing them selves up.

Version 1.1 increases the minimum throw distance for the minimum range throw to 75 meters on the Standard KGun, and 65 meters on the MK9 KGuns.

New Download file, comes with two mods in it, only put in one of the two mods, and do not attempt to install the "Depth Charge Fix" Folder, the other mods are within that.



The medium range throws have also been increased slightly, so the medium and short range are not too close.

This mod is here to correct that.

Open for criticism and other suggestions.


This is now JSGME Ready.

Link to the download http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/down...o=file&id=4033

If any bugs or errors are present, report them so I can fix them.

New Version released.
Version 1.1

Not current bugs or problems.
Constructive criticisms are appreciated.

This is just the announcement thread where people can suggest or report bugs, because last time I left out some details and forgot to Label it as (REL) Because I have finished looking for bugs or problems and there are not current problems.

I'm glad you like it!

It's good because destroyers are smart enough to Not use the DC racks when Idle but they still will throw the charges off the sides when idle but now they will not blow themselves into pieces like before

did you looked into the mod's folder what was uploaded for the people?
what means .DC_store for the main game folder? and what is it at all?
what means unchanged DC_barrel.GR2 in the Library folder?
what means guns_radars.sim in the DC range mod?
and where are the DC_barrel.zon and DC_X_H.zon if you wanted to change DC range?

I have edited the the Guns_radars has the Depth charge projector stored within, all I have done it increased the range of the thrower so the charges will not land within the damage radius of the ship.

And the DC barrels file has been had it's explosion range decreased using Goblin editor.

I have tested this, and it works, destroyers will not damage themselves with their own KGuns because they throw the charge out of the detonation range, and the explosion radius has been decreased from 60 meters to 50 meters.

I've done something similar in my game. But I wasn't sure the kguns were the problem. I set the explosion radius and the minimum depth a DC can explode to compensate for the draught of an escort, which is 2 or 3 meters. IF they don't overlap, it shouldn't be a problem.
