View Full Version : More Deck Gun Ammo.

Is there any way of moding a file to allow you to have more deck gun ammo. Having gotten the IXC i only get 60 HE and 40 AP rounds. I used to get like 160 each on the U-boat i had before.

Yes, you can edit the default ammunition settings for different weapons in the basic.cfg file (this file is in the SilentHunterIII\data\Cfg folder). Open it with Notepad/Wordpad and do a search for 'AMMO'. You should find around 10 entries similar to this:
[AMMO_TYPE0];10.5cm SK C/32
Just change the AP, HE and SS numbers to give you more ammo.

300 AP, 360 HE should do it.

I hope to become a member of the 100K club somtime in the future, I'm still getting the hang of the game,and when I asked about the 88mm Star Shells I was concerned that some would think that I had a Super Type VIIb on patrol. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

All I can say is this:
I've edited my deck/flak gun ammo counts a fair amount higher. But to reflect the additional storage space requirement I "offloaded" some food and restrict myself to 3-5 day patrols.

According to the stuff on www.uboat.net/types/u-flak.htm (http://www.uboat.net/types/u-flak.htm), U-Flak boats only carried five torpedoes (in the tubes) as self-defence. What would be good would be to create a new U-boat type (basically a VIIC), called "VIIC/Flak" or something, which would only have the capability for the actual five tubes to be loaded, but otherwise would have the correct amounts of ammunition for the Flakvierlings. Does anyone know the "correct" amounts of ammunition, and does anyone know how to create a new U-Boat type in the game?
