It's a little annoying as there are 5 destroyers circling overhead and I cant maintain depth without flank speed. I have a savegame on hand of the situation.

Do you use manual dive planes? Try it. What is your level of hull damage? Are your electric engines working well? The boat can sink without flooding, too.

I also noticed that something might be wrong with the flooding in the game, or more accurately with how it is displayed. I think we got that problem since the new Interface for U Boat Systems was introduced.

Once I got damaged and had some flooding. The Interface showed me a flooding level of zero for all compartments, but when I walked through the boat multiple compartments had water in them. The boat also had trouble keeping its depth, so I know it was a graphical glitch.

Since I did not get damaged agin after that I was not yet able to verify the issue and therefore did not report it.

We have a serious problem if we are not able to trust the damage reports in the Sub System interface....

We can trust it but note that not all the compartment have percentual flooding values displayed. You'll only see percentual damage values for these compartments. For example, U-raum (aft crew quarters) and conning tower. Note that damaged ballast tanks will also make your boat very hard to control underwater...
Yes, TWoS is hard and not really optimized for reckless Captains. :yep::D:salute:

I have updated official TWoS install instructions so that anyone with installation related problems may have more info about how to set up and prepare SH5 for TWoS...:yep:

This was not the case in my example. I had water in the engine room, however, the flooding percentage for that compartment was 0.

That is possibility, visual flooding effects can not be 100% in sync with the "real" flooding which effects ships physics...

OK, so trust the numbers, not your eyes ;)

Hi Veco,
it would be fine if you put this link on your 1st page of this mod, so potential new players know what they are gonna deal with...
I say this because I just linked a player to this mod and he says "I don't know what to do". And I'm not joking :D


Bye,

@Vecko,

A small question - I stumbled upon this while testing my ship.

What is the reason for Rudders in Zones.cfg file to be defined as non destructible? I was thinking these were supposed to fall off like propellers do:

[Rudders]
Category=Propulsion
Multiplier=1.000000
Flotability=0.000000
HitPoints=60
Destructible=No
Armor Level=-1
Critic Flotation=0.300000
Critical=No
FloodingTime=60
CargoType=None

Hm, I don't remember really...:hmmm: I'm not even sure that I change it. It's better not to touch it for now. It could be that I changed it in fly due to some encountered issues which I can not remember right now.

Sure, but from some reason I'm not able to edit my old posts. Moderators?


Anyway, download link for install instructions is available on the main TWoS download page since long time ago...
