I enjoy setting the TDC manually - and I dont like the fact that even though I choose this in the difficulty settings I can then simply ask the Weapons-officer to set the target solution. He does so within the blink of an eye. As far as I can tell his solution is always 100% correct, independent of his experience, or the time the target was observed. He will also know the type of ship immediately (no matter how far away or bad the lighting)when I ask him. The Watch-Officer and the sonar-man can tell the distance to targets, even without active sonar (their estimates are 100% accurate). This is not realistic, and at the highest difficulty levels this shouldnt be possible! I would like to work at establishing correct solutions, having these guys mock me by knowing it all right away, while their superior captain doesnâÂ´t have a clue - makes me feel bad
I know, I know, the answer is "just dont ask them, then", but still, I think with "realistic TDC" selected, there shouldnt be workarounds like those within tempting reach...
What do you guys think?
