Hey guys. Perhaps we can use that thread for questions about Sub-Tactics.

So i start now with an happenig, i dont understand.

I controled my sub which was hunting a CA. The enemies had no sub left and no DD was near my sub or in range to detect it. I was there alone with that nearly destroyed enemy's CA.
Then i saw a squad bombers with waterbombs starting from the carrier. I thought...doesnt matter cause i was dived. So i went on with hunting the CA and suddenly my sub was destroyed by waterbombs of the bombers.

The next game the same happened to a team member...same situation. The only difference was, he wasnt hunting anyone...he just moved his sub. And both times our subs were dived. And in can say in my case...the bombers werent directly controled by a player.

So why that bombers knew our exact positions? There was nothing which could have find us under water!

Re: U-boats

First quick explanation is - CA and CL are equipped with sonar too. Take a look for tactical map - u can see a small circle around CL and smallest around CA. This is their own sonar. Of course range of destroyer sonar is much bigger than cruiser sonar. So - if u want to be invisible - u must stop ur sub.

And about ur teammember accident - maybe its possible there was an enemy sub (subs are equipped with big range sonar) near your teammate sub? When enemy sub is not moving - u can't see her, but she can see you.

Perfect subs tactics are combinations between stop and dive to level three. You can switch level three to two and again to three and stay in the middle between these levels - this prevents your hull against taking pressure damage and u are still invisible.

Im not good with subs ab Maybe Adi or QQryQ can answer you - they are much better subcommanders than me ae

  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
