Just show up on the conning tower wearing that hat, and any ship in the vicinity will sink from laughter. :rotfl:


BTW, I'm currently on my 14th patrol, around Gibraltar. Up to now I sank 4 ships (16,000t) and 1 Kingfisher, who caught me by surprise. :DL

Just got back from a patrol in the littorals off of Hartlepool in good ol' U-2321 (NYGM's XXIII mod pasted on top of GWX 3.0). Fourteen days overall in February '45.

Spent most of the time avoiding hunter-killer teams and small patrols, but ran into a convoy headed south in AN51. Two columns of five freighters each, and the usual six escorts. We just happened to be in a perfect position to attack from the starboard beam; approached at 50m's depth and creeping speed until the leading and starboard beam escorts were put astern. Full-speed ahead, up to periscope depth and turn into the convoy on a 90-track; slowed to take two shots at a freighter in rough seas for one hit.

Released a Bold, took a sounding, and dove at full speed to scoot out the convoy's port quarter, giving the narrow silhouette to the trailing escort. No sign of detection, so we hung around for three hours to watch our victim slip under by the stern. By that time, the convoy had long vanished, but a seventh destroyer came in from the west to investigate, so we slunk away on a general course for home and Stavanger.

2800 GRT :up:

Sockeye,would you be so kind as to explain how you got the TypeXXIII to work with GWX:06: Would love to give it a try someday,its a cool looking U-boat,but just 2 eels:nope: Man thats a downer:03:

Sockeye 06-10-2009 10:19 AM

Actually, the only thing I did was enable the "FuMB37XXIIINYGM" folder pretty much as-is from the NYGM 3.1 patch (the latest version I had at the time). I enabled GWX's Late War Sensors Snorkel Antennas beforehand.

Then just start the game, select 1945 and the 13th Flotilla at Stavanger, and off to the east coast of England.

The only issue I'm having at the moment is with SH3 Commander. After enabling the mod, flotillas aren't showing up correctly there, but it doesn't seem to be a problem as long as the campaign is started in-game. Working on this is a bit beyond me though.

Thank you for the info:up:
