Default Map Contacts/Game Options resetting

Hello Captains, I've returned to SH5+WoS after many years. I love you all.

I found that I couldn't get map contacts to work(I'm a lightweight and need lots of help hitting anything with a torpedo). Overall, I was really having a hard time getting my Game Options to take effect.

I struggled for many hours and then saw a hint: Change Game Options while you're in the Bunker and they will take effect and remain. It worked for me!

I hope this helps anyone having the same issues. And a big thank you to this community. All the love for this game has returned for me now. It is really a fantastic experience. Happy Hunting, Captains!

Hello. I have a simple question and I am sorry the answer must be simple but I can't figure it out..
Where can I find the file "TheDarkWraithUserOptions.py" when I want to modify the setting in the TWoS - OptionsFileEditorViewer program ??

Thanks you for the tip :p

Once again I find myself setting sail on another new campaign. Once again I want to thank all the various contributors to TWOS for their hard work.

After many, many years of gaming this is the once game that I always end up coming back to time and again. I may take breaks of years in between campaigns, but TWOS never gets old for me, in the same way as SH3 modded before it.

It's amazing to me how this mod stands up to the test of time against all the new shiny, flashy games that I download, play, and then get bored with. If only Ubi had the foresight to embrace this mod and those like it wholeheartedly and officially, then perhaps their official games wouldn't die off so quickly.

Fair winds everyone...

Hi, i don't know if you heard this, but on Czech game magazine, there is an article about list of deprecated Ubisoft games which will loose online support and it says, Silent Hunter 5 will not be available to install officially (probably even from Steam).

Always keep your illegal ISOs.

This is in external view?

Game world is actually flat, not round - it "pretends" to be round by lowering objects that are far away so that they appear to be hidden behind Earth's curvature. This looks realistic from submarine conning tower which is positioned low so you don't see the "cheat" but if you move camera higher it becomes obvious.
