View Full Version : Hi Devs - Excellent game - Need one bit of advice if you have the time.

I am sure you are busy with polishing the game and helping people with the odd bugs but i was hoping you could quickly just tell me one thing;

For the carreer or variable campagn missions;

Is there any way i can edit a config file or change some variable to allow me to use the deck guns in all weathers.

If not - can i make the weather permanently calm somehow.

I really love the game but i am not a hardcore simulation person and not that brilliant at managing the sub - i just want to have fun and i enjoy finishing targets off with the deck gun but it is nearly always 'storm conditions'

Really appreciate any help or advice.

Although you would love to use the deckgun in stormy weather, you would probably have trouble hitting the mark. Also if you find a way to always have calm weather, you would kind of miss out on the graphics and weather system that makes the bar on this sim so high. But if that's how you would like to go with it, try looking into some of the .cfg files and you may find some way to edit the game variables to your liking! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the quick reply Bulwark,

I realise it would not be realistic but i just love using the deck gun and want to have some fun.

I have looked through the config files but can't seem to find the correct references that control the changing weather or deck gun parameters.

This is where i need the help.

There's quite a few config files, I haven't went through them all, but it seems you could almost change anything you want pretty well! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This is the best sub sim ever! I love it. I've had no problems at all. I do have a question though. Where can I look up the different ship flags? I ran across a ship last night that didn't have a Union Jack in the flag, so I couldn't tell if it was a neutral.

You can see the ships flags if you look in the Museum on the main menu.

Go into the museum in game and check the ships of different nations. That way you can look at the flags. Also im sure there are many websites out there if needed.

You probably saw french 3 colours blue white and red
Norwegian red flag with white cross
German red flag white circle
Swedish blue flag yellow cross
Italian red white and green (tricolore 3 stripes)
