how are nets avoided and are they detectable in any way?

if you want to avoid them..stay out of enemy harbors..as far as detecting them...you will hear a very loud screeching noise....then you know you found the antisub netting.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Went to Portland today (the port is huge btw!). Thought I was real clever when I marked the path I took into the harbour, via the south entrance.

Unexpectedly, I ran into a net at 1 kt (just in case..). The 'net' is located between the two lighthouses. Sustained some minor damage, blew ballast, cruised over it.

The funniest thing occurred to me on my way back out though. Heading east, and with the port entrance 2-3 kilometres west I decided to submerge (I made sure to leave Portland the same way I approached).

I raise the scope once the boat's submerged, but before it breaks the surface I spot a flipping naval mine to my left! Quickly scanning the sea, I conclude there are none in my path, but discover one at 180?/50m, bobbing at such a depth that it just about allowed me to pass surfaced, but had I submerged half a minute earlier, U-5 had been no more.

Needless to say I blasted the tanks and ordered flank speed, hoping for the best.

well are the nets in the patch version 1.4 game or do you have to have a mod installed for nets to be present?
