Hello all,
Been out of the forums a couple weeks, and I see some discussion regarding NYGM TW v2.1. I haven't been able to find a link or any info regarding a download in the forums search.

Anyone have any info on how to upgrae from 2.0 to 2.1?

Thanks!

The NYGM Tonnage War v2.0 - U-boat Visual Update to v2.01 here http://www.filefactory.com/?1ed0b0

Forum feedback had mimicked my own in game experiences regarding that the u-boat was often being detected by the improved escorts before the u-boat detected the escort. This is occurring even though NYGM have not yet modded the u-boat visual.


I will state that in my current in game testing of the U-boat visuals, that my u-boat spots escorts no differently than previously. During the day I am spotting escorts at ranges from over the horizon to about 7000, possibly a fraction lower.

BUT... I am incurring more instances where the escort has spotted me before my crew have spotted him. This should not be the case.

This is my interpretation of what is happening before.
Previously an escort was essentially blind at distances over 3000 metres when travelling along. Because of this, an escort could come into your zone of detection; he could sail around up and down closer and further just as long as he stayed far enough away nothing would happen.

The escort could have, and most likely did, spend a lot of time within your detection zone before detection. That is, even though you detected the escort when he was on the horizon, the escort had been in out detection zone for 10 minutes.

This is my interpretation of what is happening now.
On a perfect day the escort can now see your u-boat bow on at approx 3000+ and side on at approx 8000+. This is a calm day, 0mps, no clouds, sunny....

Where as previously the escort would sail up and down in and out without detecting you, up until you detected him, he is now detecting you because he can see further.

As like the Crash Dive Blues, NYGM's modifications have exposed a standard SHIII behaviour that was either not an issue as it had been managed.

Having spent that last 4 days going over the U-boat visual sensor, I have come to the conclusion that the u-boat AI has no day/night differences and for all intensive purposed, the U-boat visual options in the sensors,cfg are operationally impaired.

I am releasing an interim patch to re-establish the balance between the u-boat and the enemy detection abilities. This patch simply reduces the required surface area required to detect an enemy ship.

This update changes the detection by your u-boat crew of an escort coming at you bow on from 8700 metres up to over 13,000 metres.
