You mean for more frequent weather changes? I'm afraid that's not possible because it seems that weather changes in SH5 are hard codded and follow they own rules (regarding time of the year and world location).

SH5 doesn't really like old 4:3 resolutions. The settings are there but you can not see them. Try to select the highest possible ingame resolution and see will the required setting options will appear in the menu. Otherwise, you can manually edit cfg file...

Also I am still looking for the original Das boot bunker clip and music which went with TWOS in earlier versions. Deleting the .bik file did not work on my previous version 2.1. Any info on how to do that?
Search for mod called "Das Boot main theme" or something like that. It should be compatible...

then, do I set finished tutorial on true in the cfg file? And my campaign advance checker keeps telling me there is a problem.
It's probably a false warning.

With "some" versions of the game you always get "error" message but your campaign transfers will work OK. If not, we have the alternative campaign transfer method which is described in TWoS documentation. In-game campaign/flotilla transfer radio messages will tell you what to do approximately 1 month before designated transfer date.

Hi Ashikaga!
the mod you are looking for is "Das Boot Departure Theme", it is a mod that I did with the collaboration of Yoram and if you are interested this is the link:

questions
 
Hey Vecko
I noticed that patrol boats are still setting themselves on fire.

Is it possible to make a view under the water which gives the depth of the ocean. Even when I am 500m under the keel, I feel like on a coral reef.

Another thing. The smoke chimney is visible in the reflection of the water even though the ship itself can not be seen.

Sensitivity to small caliber fire.
During the attack of armed small ships very quickly suffers critical damage, and the crew, although staying in the ship suffers serious wounds.

Hello
I think submarine damage is fine. Have you wondered what kind of weapons are these boats equipped? The submarine has no cloak armor. The pressure body has a force of 2 cm.

Thanks, but I am a bit confused here. I didn't see a "camera bar". I also do not see any "next unit" in the key map.

Please forgive, its been a long time since I have played this title, and I have just reinstalled, and applied the TWoS mod. To give you an idea how long its been since I have played this, my last save on Uplay was in April of 2011.

To be clear, I am looking for a way to have my external camera, attached, and following my sub.

Thanks again!

Ashikaga 03-02-18 09:15 PM

Camera bar is in the top of your screen. Move your mouse pointer there and it will show up.

The follow sub cam is the second eye : camera on next unit.

@Vecko, is the event cam somehow disabled in TWoS?

Got it...
Ashikaga.....Thank you!:Kaleun_Cheers:

Only in high waves, but I have already fixed this for the next update...:yep:

All underwater visibility parameters are in FogDistances.cfg file...

If you were there I don't think you would consider 20mm AAA gun with armor piercing rounds and high rate of fire so "minuscule"...

I am not referring to the distance of visibility, rather the visibility and brightness of the seabed

1. KSD working fine offline in my installation.


2. I enabled destroyed marks in the map. Now I'm in HT, august 1940 and I see sunk ships with date 1943 (known problem?). I use the map marks colour addon.

Best regards.

What is the best way to hit destroyers? I set the torpedos to 1 meter depth and they still often go below the keel of the destroyer. I tried setting the torpedos to magnetic but they prematurely detonate or don't detonate at all, even though I disabled duds in the gameplay settings. Can somebody give me some advice? I would be very grateful.

Hi guys,

first of all, I am totally enjoying the Mod. Its soooo good!
Despite the occasional Sh5 bug (destroyers friend and foe, stalking me unless I reload and they lose track, RMB-Camera, scrollwheel for binocs etc) I am having an absoloute blast.
Already sunk the QE when she was entering the fjord to narvik. took her 3 torps to finally go down and a couple of C3 cargo liners. Currently at early 1940 and still in my Typ VII A. Which is a shame, already got 120.000t sunk of which 31.000tons are warship tonnage.

Anyways, I was just wondering if its correct, that my sub is always called "U-**" I would love to have a regular number...

Best wishes and vecko so much thank you for this outstanding overhaul
