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...


Ah ok, so next time I will link any interested player to the download section.


Have a nice time!

I noticed something that is bothering me and Im curious to know if that can be improved.

When Aircraft attack you, they immediately break off their attack as soon as you dive below the waves. They do not try to drop their bombs in the area where you have been last.

I think that is a shame and it makes aircraft much less dangerous. Also I do not think that any aircraft can be armed with depth charges, because they would never use them effectively.
It is a very different Experience in SH3 GWX, where aircraft are the biggest danger to you.

Id it possible to improve Aircraft AI, so that they drop their ordinance even if your sub is already below the waves?

Unfortunately nothing regarding airplanes AI can't be improved or at least I don't know how to do it. TDW's IRAI improves things to the some extent but still, airplanes AI is one of the weakest points of SH5 in my opinion as well...

Do you think it is possible to look at the SH3 GWX implementation and learn from that? Or does SH5 work in a very different way?

I'm not 100% about this but I really doubt that would make any noticeable difference. The problem is that even default airplanes AI in SH3 and 4 is quite good and functional while in SH5 is completely broken.



Also , if you take a look into SH3/4 files you'll see that literally only few files control planes performances (airstrike.cfg ?) while in SH5 is completely different story due to scripts introduction...

So the default AI is already missing too much functionality to significantly improve it. Shame. But then we just have to take it as it is.

By the way, in order to make aircraft a little bit more dangerous, I would like to enable the option that Carriers can launch Aircraft. I remember that it was advised to not do that. Why was that again? What could happen?

A new video, this one shows how I managed to sink so much tonnage in my last patrol :)

Aircraft carriers will spawn airplanes just like any other airbase regardless of mentioned patch. I'm not really sure what was TDW 's intention with those patches but they definitely don't do anything useful in the game. You can easily create test mission to confirm this.



From my testing I learned that those patches will only spawn airplanes on carrier's deck but the planes will instantly fall down to see, not really nice bug to see...

After several years off, I reinstalled SH5 and the TWOS mod. I have to say I am very impressed. It is very easy to instal and has a nice mix of mods.

I only have one issue, the are numbers in the top left corner that look like a FPS counter. How do I turn that off? Ctrl+F8 does not work.

The keys for see FPS in game are Ctrl+F8.

But I think you have active the FPS counter in Uplay (?). Go to your Uplay settings and put it off.
