Just a few things here.......And i would appreciate some responses. 1. How many torpedoes does it freakin take to drop a ship? some ships take 3 in the side or 2 head on and still keep moving along at a HUGE list with over 1/2 of the boat still in the water (yea like thats realistic). Also, Anyone else notice how SLOW the boat creeps underwater as in diving time? One more thing, Im unable to even see where I can load a deck gun crew?! I can man it, but in the area where u assign crews, there arent any boxes where I can put people. what gives??
1. Avoid head on torpedo shots, theyre pretty much useless. Also set your torps to explode below the ship,does far more damage. If you are using TM1.6 I think it has a sinking mod which makes ships sink more realistically, try that.
2.Slow diving time, there is some bug in that, where the slower a boat is going, the faster it dives. Dunno if its been fixed, have you got all the patches for the game?
3.Deck Gun can be manned in the crew management menu. If there is no box for the guncrew, then you didnt equip a deck gun when you left port.
Have you switched the mounting of the deck gun? I don't know if the problem is universal, but when I tried to move the gun on my Gato from stern to bow, the crew slots got removed also. Judging from another thread, the same is true with boats boasting two deck guns, only one or the other can be AI manned.
