Ok so I bought SHIII, 2 weeks ago, and since then I am having a blast. Playing with manual targeting, and realism setting up to 86% (I think it is been great so far.
I've played the first silent hunter years ago and I remember how good it was. Going back to the same feeling is great. I've downloaded SH3Commander, but I could use and advice for any other mods that I should use.
I haven't been able to do 100k yet but I am very close. My max was so far 76k if I am not mistaking. But I am still at 1940 and using VIIC atm.
I haven't had a chance to see any battleships or carriers, but just once I saw a little warships convoy but they where fast and I didnt had a great opportunity to fight.
I have one question. If I am attacking something during the night I only use my sonar information, since I can't see anything. Is that the only way to handle night attacks? I mean periscope is useles, While I can lock the target I don't think it is any realistic since I can't even see it on my screen. And of course it is impossbile to do the range calculations when its that dark, with the periscope.
I got killed just once so far, which only happened in a foggy night when I was on surface, the C3 cargo came out from nowhere and rammed me!
Thank you, and I apologise for my english since its my second language
