Yea, we sort of deal with different issues and mods. 90% of my escorts are set to elite, they just work and hunt you much better, but I've tried to tweak values to give me a fair chance.
I like the long visuals during the day, but as stated if you tweak visuals down, it effects both day and night, so only way I can do it is by adjusting light values, I have tweaked the subs AI visuals to match the enemy, not fair they could see you first, lol. But even with no moon they still see you pretty good if you're broad. Now I trying to adjust env files to help tweak with the visuals......just so time consuming.
I may DL and check 2.5 out, just I have 2.2 so tweaked I don't want have to adjust my changes depending on what changes he made.
