Can anyone confirm that there should be a canal at kiel. This would relieve that long hike before entering the north sea. I do believe uboats made use of this. Would it be difficult to add it ?

PS Thanks to all the people helping out and to the mod people

Yes there should be, but the Devs said long ago they would not have time to put it in the game.

Is it that difficult? You sail to position x, NO says "Go through canal?"

Choices... YES or NO...

Yes: Cutscene and you're at the exit

No: Nothing Happens

Takes some realism out, but gets the job done.

doesnt even have to be that complicated. it would have taken less than a day(testing included) to add it since it only has to be done once with the map editor. not having time for wolfpack i can understand bc of programming their ai and such
but lack of kiel canal is just laziness or ignorance since it would have been so easy to add to the map.

Well speaking of lack of canals, how did U-47 get into Scapa Flow.

I mean I'm in charge of U-47 now, but I had to go through the western entrances.

its funny how in this game they didnt model kiel canal and they also didnt model the eastern entrance to the scapa flow?? in the game i managed to get in from the south but it was completely unrealistic from the real mission....

I know all about that, when I wrote my post I had a tone of sarcasm in my voice, which I can't exactly write. What I'm getting at is the inlet that U-47 used to get it isn't in the game.
