What a great idea!

I wonder how it would handle a transatlantic patrol? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Seriously though, that mod is a major achievement. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

it's really pretty cool i installed it lastnight and have been having a great time all the gun positions work..rips along @40 knts ..waiting for the skinners to get up a good hi res skin or two..but it's sweet...evading gunfire @40 knts while zigzaging is wild ... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Whoa, just tried it, it's superb! Played the Happy Times mission, managed to sink the auxiliary cruiser and a T3 tanker. And got away with 7% hull left. It's so much fun :P

And I dunno about a transatlantic patrol... Considering it can't make Scapa at ahead slow, with no fuel to get back http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Lots of AA though, gotta check it out in later years

The Modding community has gone mad.....

BUT I am not complaining, what an experience....just dont go in the control room....talk about sea-sickness feeling!!!!!!!

10/10 for the Modders.

This is a lot of fun!!

I tried it the other day, and the only complaint I have is that I can't close enough to anything to make a good shot, the escorts always get me! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Its a blast. In so used to only being able to go 20 knots on a calm sea. This can do 36 where a IX or VII caould only do 18. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

This is the next best thing after gwx 2.0.

I imagine that in a while, sh3 will be transformed from not-quite-finished-uboat-sim to WWII-Submarine-and-Small-Naval-Units-Simulation. I mean, if this can be done with an S boat, it can be done with Elcos or American PT boats as well, right?

It worked for me for 2 patrols, but now the game randomly freezes or does a CTD when i try to load a patrol with this boat... Sigh... And it doesn't work in 1943. I was going to test out the AA guns in Biscay, but it wont even load the patrol...

If you try to load a game mid patrol it wont work. Due to the fact that the IIA is missing one of its torpedo tubes.

Well i set up a mission to test it out fully, a group of S-boats vs a group of PTs excorting a group of ocean liners and full speed.

was quite fun, the battle with the other PT boats was more of a dogfight tiwsting and circling and chasing at high speeds with baots going in all directions. after we beat them i torpeadoed the queen mary, then shot at the maritinia and to my surprise it sank.

to my surprise i sank the maritania with my Flak Guns!!!!!

Interesting. DU-flak guns...

And @ Wilhelm, it won't let me start a patrol anytime except 1939. At all. I don't load a saved patrol, i start the first patrol of a new career. Won't work. I suspect it has something to deal with flak guns... maybe not
