Hi all,
After playing with 1.4 today, I found a convoy in BF14 more or less after just cruising into the square.

Great I think, set my attack run up but didn't bother to use the depth finder. Fired my salvo, then decided to go deepish 80m.

Low & Behold the ocean floor was only 38m or there abouts http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I don't think I'm imagining things here, but I sure remember this sector being down to perhaps 109m.

Anyone else experienced this at all?

I do not honestly know if it was changed or not, but BF14 does have a wide variety of depth changes in it from fairly shallow in a few small spots to very deep.

It is possible you were on one of those reefs , I see 4 of them on my map.

In the places I am used to, I have not seen any differences.

Always use your Navigator for depth sounding before diving to know what is going on under you.
