Wouldnt that make em "friendly"? We dont sink french ship after France taken do we? As far as I know the brits sank some to prevent Germany from getting them.

there is convoy map chart in game take a look at it and u will see the convoy routes ..... in WWII there was u-boat captain who never saw a ship in they patrols .....to hunt a ship need patience and time....

The game will recognize Holland ships as "axis" after invasion (homeports turn blue) even if they location and route can be sometimes questionable...

Testing out TWoS full up with realnav and I'm puzzled. Why does my navigator take so long to plot a celestial fix? As I remember it never took the QM's more than about 5 minutes after shooting bearings and angles. :hmmm:




Other than that I finally feel like I'm playing a proper sub sim. Thanks to everyone who helped put this awesome megamod together. :salute:

I never found anything in atlantic, i always met a boat only near english coastal waters, but its still 1940, happy times starts soon :-)

Keep it up and play only with real navigation, its really gamechanger, i already fixes my map position only manually by calculating speed, course and time in 50+% this is the first time i feel SH is really simulator, dont want to see waypoint system ever! :)

True that, but there,s gotto be a way to Find the coordinates of convoys bdu sends you.

1) I prefer RAOBF, because its instant way how to get AoB instead of not really precise drawing on map. You'll get even distance and speed with it, but its not usable without a little teaching how to use it, but its really handy as you'll get into it like many things what seems not really intuitive at start..

Check this 4 part video if you want to learn RAOBF.

This is new cool video about TDC targeting and real navigation (definitelly recommended to all real navigation newbies) from TWOS fan.

2) Maybe this thread gives you something new about TDC targeting, i believe it contains important things about it, because i didn't get these infos really from TDC's videos..

3) If you want to go deeper, this thread shows really neat and quick ways how to set TDC to kill targets which you would let go otherwise because of bad position.. (and it really works in TWOS)

4) This looks like my advertising, but i dont really care if someone reads it, i just love to use trigonometry instead of map drawing :)
This thread is about how to calculate target course just from distant hydrophone measuring more precise and quickly, than drawing 4 bearing method on map..
This way you can calculate ideal approach bearing to your target.

Yes you can, just jot it down to map by lat-long from message and draw their rough course (for instance sws could be somewhere between 185-220).
You have to wait for them under water to hear them even if you are not at the right place :salute:

Oh and check speed charts ingame (E / speed / speed charts for minutes or hours) on the top you could see how much knots could be slow, or medium convoy speed from BDU message to be able to expect the convoy at your position in rough time..

Hi Vecko

People should first learn to install and update the game before advancement to modding.
Installing the game is not the problem.
There are no instructions anywhere telling the noob where to find the updater hence the problem, whether un-modded stock or TWOS.
Ubisoft have made it difficult because you cannot see it when they have put the game updater application behind 2 folders.

There are instuctions how to update the game in the how to install YouTube video.

Hi oscar
How many gamers will actually take the trouble to view a long tutorial video?
If they did they would not be posting their problems on Subsim.
Its the same with the documentation, cannot be bothered to read it, then ask questions!
