I have returned..TMO update
 
Well my vacation ended up lasting much longer than planned between family illness and two hurricanes, then arrived home to a non functioning air conditioning and wi-fi Thursday , so been a terrible weekend lol but all resolved now.

Plan to to do one more check on the TMO update this week then package for release for next week.

Did I miss anything? Have only brief perused the forums in last month or so.

I can imagine you at home calling "battlestations", klaxons ringing, damage control teams being summoned, demanding damage reports, etc. I await your final "Patrol Report" and welcome you back to port.

My current mod set:

I generally only like a minimum of mods (the less, the better with fewer problems with 'mod soup madness). And I never quite know the potential redundancy problems created. I do know this has been the most enjoyable combination, so far. I did like playing FoTRSu with the additional interior sections but the visits forward took second fiddle to the uniforms, rank promos, sound, visuals and feel of my current set.

To keep the number of mods play needs to minimum, pretty much all of my mods have been incorporated into the forthcoming update, will list them in the readme.

Thanks. Yes, pretty much lol. Fired the sim up for first time last night since July, depth charge in shallow waters off Honshu Coast(traffic shifts to just a few thousand yards off the beach at this point per history) after sinking a ship in December 1944. Gave me chance to really test the damage model tweaks. Sub took a beating but no instant death, survived with no apparent bugs.

Pinging by enemy escorts bothers my dog suddenly. lol

Do I need the original TMO 2.5 before the newest 2.5 update? I can't get TMO to run. The directions are really convoluted, the names of a couple of the files in the required readme aren't actually the names, I figured that part out, won't start for me gives me an application load error

Fresh SH4 install & the following mods, in this order :(which are included in the unzipped folder/s for TMOverhauled v2.5 after downloading here: :Kaleun_Salute:https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/sho...80&postcount=1)

1- Trigger MaruOverhauled v2.5
2- Nav Map MakeOverTMO Update
3- NavMapMakeOverTMO UpdatePatch
4- Allied ships pack -TMOverhauled v2.5
5- Ships for TMOverhauled v2.5
6- EAXsound w-o Websters maneuver for TM
7- TMOverhauled v2.5 different smoke & splash effects
8- IJN_Radar_Fix_2

* = special note... just one of these mods, for depth charges to be activated at a time... both are listed here, with special date notation included by Me, to clarify which to use 1st & which to replace the 1st with at the appropriate date.

Hope this helps, clarify how best to activate TMOverhauled v2.5

Hello, it is unfortunate found the directions convoluted, I did attempt to make it easy to understand and first user have had mentioned found it confusing, but I understand. Having said that, I am glad to help you get moving.


No, the TMO update does not require the previous version of TMO, simply download the update and installed into mods folder. All required additional mods are included in the download, please see the folder inside the TMO 2.5 Update download labeled "Required Mods" and there are important optional mods in there as well as README clearly explains.

Your install order in JSGME should be:

TriggerMaru_Overhaul_2-5_UpdateBH Revised Final
NavMapMakeoverTMOUpdate (Required-Included in download)
NavMapmakeoverTMOupdatePatch (Required-Included in download)
Allied Ship Pack TMO (Required, see Subsim downloads section under ships)
Ships for TMO (Required, see Subsim downloads section under ships)
EAX Sound Simulation without Webster Maneuver TMO by Vickers03
TMO2_Different_smoke_and_splash_effects by Vickers03
IJN_Radar_Fix_2 (Required-Included in download)
Any Optional mods included with TMO and TMOupdate.(See optional mods folders included in the download)*
Others mods of player choice . Of course be wary of conflicts as can break the mod!


Among the optional mods, you should select based on the time period as README explained.

TMONewDepthCharges Type 95 should be enabled between December 1941 and late 1943.


TMO NewDepthCharges Type 2 should be activated late 1943 until end of the war. As the specified above , these are optional mods included with the download and the activation order is shown above.

This has to be done to reflect the different depth charges used by IJN during the war. The extensively revised damage model of player submarines was created to work with these depth charge mods. If you choose not to activate them, you will have the default TMO depth charges which will likely find are very over powered and will not interact with the damage model properly, so choose one of the included depth charge mods based on appropriate time period.


Same with torpedoes as from December 1941-February 1943 want to use the Torpedoes Early TNT, which is included in the download.


The Torpex Torpedoes mod included should be activated when on patrol from February 1943-end of the war. This represents the switch from US torpedoes using TNT explosive in warheads to Torpex, which had more power and thus in the sim, will notice the Torpex torpedoes are more effective.

The Australia Torpedoes (Torpex) should be activated if running an Australia based boat from February 1943 onwards. Everything is the same except the dates the magnetic features are disabled, reflecting history.



Let me know if need any further help. Please refer to the master TMO Update released thread below. :Kaleun_Salute:
