View Full Version : Does anyone have speed charts for each U-boat?

Suddenly realised I have no idea how many knots I'm doing, in each U-boat, when surface or submerged at the various telegraph speed settings.

Does anyone have a handy reference guide? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Sure!

The actual speed in knots is shown under the telegraph.

If you want to make a chart look at ...\Ubisoft\SilentHunterIII\data\Submarine
All Uboats are in there.


To get the relevant data for a 7b for example check ...\NSS_Uboat7b\NSS_Uboat7b.cfg


Open with notepad.

Max. speed surface/submerged and the speedsteps for the telegraph are enlisted.

Just be aware that those figures are dependent upon the efficiency of the relevant engine compartment, the status of the batteries and engines themselves, etc.

Running on one screw when recharging will tend to make you slower than the figures in the configs.
When the battery is at or below 25 percent, you will start to notice the speed dropping off with submerged propulsion.

Also if you click a small dot next to your telegraph settings it will change from "slow, Medium..." etc to a pure knot dial and you can allways tell the exact speed! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Aaahhh... I was wondering about that. It's tricky business getting things 100% accurate... especially when you're attempting to get yer noodle around advanced plotting and intercepts.

Thanks muchly one and all. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
