I finaly got my XXI! Yay!

But.. I'm kinda sad, I love being able to be submerged all the time but it seems kinda crazy. When I go to periscope depth it has to go down to 25m then it goes back up to 15. So if I'm in shallows , I crash into the seafloor!

Then with my snorkel up I've died so much to airplanes. They apparently can see it miles off, and I get no radar warning of their approach. Just, depth charges in the water! game over!

I tried only using the snorkel at night but they still found me! Is there some super snorkel trick? It seems completly pointless. I was safer with all my guns and radar on the IXD2 :O

Yes, it is a bug with XXI snorkel. On radar, it appears just as big as the real sub. There is a mod for this, and it works like a charm. Unfortunately, I forgot where I got it, but if you wanna give me your email, I can email it to you, its a very small file.

Don't dive to P depth at ahead flank http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif And you'll be allright

Yes, that one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif No problem. I had to put up with that for about half a year game time, up to the point when I didn't sail anywhere except the Arctic. Ahh, what a relief when I found that mod

Did you use the Jones mod enabler to install the mod? It didn't really have any instructions, I hope I Did that right :P

Sorry, my bad. It was not the mod I used. Mine is called the Sensor Pack, with two files. One relates to the snorkel on XXI, another to DD's active sonar. I only used the first one. If you want, I can email you the file http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif All you need is to copy/paste

Are the Sensor pack mod included in GWX?

I'd like to get my hands on this mod too...anyone know a place where you can download it? Subsim seems to be lacking it, strangely enough.

turns out I could fix it myself with the minitweaker thing

I just set the radar and visibility to 1 meter min height

Edit: nevermind I'm still dumb. I thought that would work but a few km from norway and BOOM uboat destroyed by flooding.. plane got me again http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Maybe I am using the mini tweaker program wrong.
