hello all,
ive been playing sh4 and ordered sh3,should be here soon.

i love the graphics in sh4 and the game overall but the convoy behavior really ruins the game for me.after you hit a ship all the others start a freewheeling zig zag that never stops.ive used the free camera to watch them run into each other ,stop and then back out of the way of a approaching ship.it just doesnt work for a game that wants to be a simulation.

when i played silent service yearssssss ago the ships held their places in the convoy and zig zaged instead of milling about like a bunch of drunken sailors.

do the convoys act the same way in sh3?

They do and as I have understood it that is fairly realistic according to history. I find it fascinating to go submerged into the convoy, maybe hiding under one of the transport vessels - you can observe it through the periscope - to get away from the escorts. Using external view intermittently does help, too..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif
