if you have patched the game to 1.4 you can edit the .cfg files in the data/cfg/submarines directory for every boat.

It has something to do with the wind speed I belive, I may be wrong.

You have to do this edit for each sub. Go to your: game folder\data\submarine. There is one folder for each boat. Inside each folder is a file that is named the same as the host folder. Edit this file with Notepad or other text editor. Look for this section [example here is for a Type 2A]:

[Properties]
PeriscopeDepth=10.5;meters
SnorkelDepth=8;meters
CrashDepth=70;meters
MaxDepth=300;meters
SurfaceDepth=7;meters
TorpLaunchMaxDepth=16;meters
StormConditions=9,0.1;max wind speed [m/s], max rain intensity [0,1]

You need to edit the StormConditions line to something else. Let your conscience be your guide here. You could change it to something like this:

StormConditions=12,0.1;max wind speed [m/s], max rain intensity [0,1]

Using this example, you will be able to man the deck and flak guns in conditions up to 12 mps winds. I've always felt that in certain boats you should be able to man the flak guns in worse conditions than those for deck guns, because the flak guns on some boats are at the same height as the bridge. Sure, the decks might be awash, but you could still get to the bridge-mounted AA gun. Like I said, let your conscience be your guide.

You'll find that above 11 or 12 mps, you'll find it nearly impossible to aim, your crew also.

10ms = 36Kph which is not that bad.

ya, the 7 that the IXc is set at is ******ed...
and ya, if yaou can stand next to the flakgun on the bridge, you can man it!

I think something like 10ish would help a whole lot
