Can someone confirm this?

I was following a merchant at night and decided I'd just test out the changes made in this mod so I try to get as near as the merchant to see at what distance he will see me. Turns out that at a stunning 300m (not 3000m) he didnt even see me yet. I know he didnt see me because he kept the same course ( I play 0% realism (just to spot these "changes")) Then i was thinking ... hummm, maybe he's from a country I'm not at war with. I was going to fly off but then decided to shoot two torpedoes, just to make sure. Turns out he was an enemy after all (there was a red sunk ship icon on my map).

So ..... bascically, the merchants can't spot you at night? Am I right? I think this is a good idea but maybe exagerated a little bit, 300 meters is darn close....

This is very interesting. Last night, I intercepted a convoy at night in rainy weather using the GWX mod.

I torched an amunition ship with 2 eels and attempted to maneuver my Boat to get a clear shot at a large tanker. I kept my scope up for about 2 minutes inside the convoy and the ships were evading me and kept hearing we have been spoted. In no time there was a destroyer on top of me and it was all over! even though I took the skope down and switched to silent running!

They saw me!

Yes, as Fong said, your conning tower can be intermittently revealed in rough weather while you travel at periscope depth. Try having an external look at your sub next time you are in a storm.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
