Also, a side note, do you use the 4 Bearings method at all?

I always came back after expiration and had no problem with it, so i can confirm its ok so, but cannot say anything about coming back before..

Yes i use 4 bearing method, but calculating it by hand in numbers, no drawing on map.

Hey there!

I have two questions mainly:

1) what do you mean by calculating by hand?

2) And also, when BdU gives you a report about the contact they only give Latitude and Longitude, no course or speed, how can you set up an intercept? I watched stoianm video but he is given that information about bearing and course. He doesn't use TWoS though, so this is why I asked you.

Thanks!

Sorry for responding here, but its better for the others who would like to ask the same thing (this questions was asked via private message).


1) This is how i calculate 4 bearings method "by hand", its much better after lets say 3-5 tries because its much easier in the end and not so irritating like drawing at map.
Find yourself paper and pencil and learn again good old elementary math, calc is exploit here! :salute:

2) Yes sometimes you have only location without target's movement info, in this cases, you have no way to find it, you have to be there quick, or pick some choice blindly..

Well, no offense Peter, but if you want to use such a tool, you would better switch on direct target course showing at map ;)

Hi Palmic
No offense taken, its just an option.

No worries, I asked in the PM because it wasn't totally related to this thread and I was afraid of going off topic! :)

1) Eh, I love maths, I only have one issue: I dislike trigonometry. Calculus and set theory? Love it though, despite it being much more difficult. I will break open pen and paper and will ask if anything is unclear.

2) Ah ok, in those cases when you have no precise location you get the message only in the Captain log and not in the radio feed, right? And when do you start the clock, when it still says Unknown contact or Contact on the hydro?

so ive got a good question. Whats going on with coastal defensies? and aircraft being launched to respond to radio threats/carrier ASW, i see that the patches are in the genric patcher and i read that they possibly cause game issues and CTD's any idea if this is now stable? or is there a way to make it stable? My current campaign is end of january 1940 and im sitting in eye shot of british coastal waters at some points up west of scapa flow just raiding all the armed merchants for 16k to 18k a pop and got a total tonage of over 300k. really wondering when the british are going to send something a little tougher than two hurricanes and more armed merchants to come die lol im playing in pretty high realism settings not with real navigation yet but thinking about adding it on my next run thru and disabling the extrenal camera... besides that im pretty much maxed on realism. Not to complain, the mega mod is awsome , i was a submariner for real and i like how close you guys got this... but im pretty sure with all these ships ive taken out , british would of repositioned there main fleet to take me out by now im more deadly than the bizmark and moved way more aircraft assets with coastal batteries..... mines ive yet to see more than one of even tho the msg traffic says they have been laid in X harbor. Just curious thank you

Hi Guys,

Quick question just installed this mod and all is working great, however i don't seem to have a 16x9 aspect ratio mod.... only 4x3 and 16x10.

Can anyone please advise me where to get the 16x9 patch or if it is needed?, i have a 16x9 monitor

Thank you

The megamod is optimized for 16/9 displays by default...

Hello i just installed the mod and when i play the manual TDC tutorial it after a few clicks it gets to the "turn on TDC" but i have no clue where i do that, i think i have looked everywhere but i just cannot find it.
Any help would be nice thank you :)

IIRC it's always on.


Ok, I've attacked my first convoy, June 1940. I got into position, drove alongside and overhauled until it was night, I made my first attack at around midnight, sank 2 ships after having penetrated inside the convoy and I noticed an issue.

1) Escorts immediately find you even at silent running while in the middle of the convoy, they just have no issue despite all of that noise.

I managed to shake of the 5 escorts and proceeded to do the same thing, I surfaced, ran parallel, overhauled but tried doing a surfaced attack with the moon in front of me, I was at a depth of 8 meters with only the conning tower exposed, at a speed of 1 kts.

2) Escorts immediately spotted me before I launched my torps. I managed to launch 2, which sank two 7000 tonne ships, while I dove to safety, I got depth charged for almost 2 hours, had to go to 177m depth, my crystal hydro broke, but no depth charge feel close enough to damage. I felt like there were atleast 4 escorts, since my sonar man was crazy and couldn't follow any of them despite I ordered him to do so.

I decided to go and look with the external camera, I was shocked:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=722452005
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=722435261
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=722435142
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=722435017
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=722434835

To sum up:
1 CL;
2 BBs (Battlecruisers, but still);
1 CV;
15 DDs.

Isn't it a bit too excessive? The 1 CL, 10 DDs, 1 CV and 2 BBs I suspect were vectored in after the second attack because they were nowhere close, not even hydro contact, when I pressed the attack.

palmic 07-11-16 01:25 PM

Wow hardcore approach, congrats :rock:

I think this is really way too much

1) Cruisers would be escorted to safety immediately
2) I don't believe England navy had so many DD's to spare for one convoy at all at 1940'

Thanks a lot Palmic! Ended up sinking over 20k tonnes AND survived!

I also noticed that they can see torps (the steam ones) during the night, which again could happen, but would take an extremely attentive crew I find.


Can any of these issues be addressed vdr1981?

Btw Palmic, did you see my question on your 4 bearings thread?
