I'm at almost 40%. Okay, so I'm a wimp.

I am on 48%

I started at my 1rst patrol at 48% and now I am 72%.
I change realism according to my experience.

06-30-2005, 09:20 AM
66% but I was at 74% for a long time.

53% I think it is. Everything turned on except the ones that matter http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I play at 83%. I have outside view on (I like the eye candy) and weapons officer assist. I just feed the range, speed and AOB. Thats it for me. The only other thing I would turn off is the outside view. I believe you need the assist from weapons officer. You can't do it all!

100% with RUB (Real UBoat) since I started playing (now about 1 month). I have been relying on all the forum screenshots for the eye candy effects, as I have only seen the views from the scope/bridge... so please keep'em coming!

Haven't gotten back into it yet since RUB1.41 to see the new minefield w/ escorts out of harbor (sounds like it might be a pain now to leave harbor too or get blown up by my own minefield - that would suck - or worse coming home from a successful mission) but have previously played with the targeting mods master Beery added since RUB 1.4. I think these require a reduction in realism to something like 96%, although that is misleading as the mod changes the map updating significantly... (but requires map updates to be on).

About 45% I'm here to have fun and watch the Eye candy. (That's probably why I die so often, I'm never in my sub) If I wanted stress I'd go back to work.

I like the eye candy and doing all the computations is just not my thing. I assume that if my life depended on it and I was captain I would learn how but I would much rather focus on manueverring the U-Boat for a good shot than "number crunching.

06-30-2005, 12:12 PM
The eeye candy is great. Maybe I'll jack it up later (to 41%).

Typically, I only use Map Updates and Free Camera so that puts me at 80%.

But I do sometimes turn off the free camera for more of a challenge, in that case its 88%.

Haven't needed to play anything below 80% since my 3rd patrol.

(I'm sure the majority of you realize the realism setting is a renown multiplier right?)

Noticing your sig... I wouldn't even have submitted a 100k club score at 50%!

06-30-2005, 12:34 PM
I play at 97%. Do I win a prize?

06-30-2005, 12:53 PM
The first time I played was at 72% percent but after a few patrols I went to 92%.
I keep the outside view for screenshots but will start today at 100% with RUB1.4.

For those that are afraid on manaul targeting, don't be.
Just start by simple point the boat at the line and fire when you see the bow come into the view and go by trial and error. It is so much more satisfying to make those shots after you start to see the angle changes. Yes I still miss many shots but the ones I make, I made. You will love it once you have done it.
I would stay with 92% but admit when things get hairy I cheat, its the survival mode thing and I must simply not have it. I want to simulate being a U-Boat CO so that is the only way.
Cover me, I'm going in!!!

Started at 89% always been at 89% except the occassional 97% when I only have event window on. But I miss looking at the Uboat cut thrut he waves with external so I end up going back to 89%.

The only options I leave on is God Eye's view on the map, detection meter, and WO, IIRC.

You can still turn it on, just use the Weapons Officer to get the targeting of the target. It's practically the same thing as having auto targeting except you just have to get the targeting info from the WO instead of it being automatic.
Plus, you'll get more renown per patrol since you'll be playing at a higher realism setting.

I am now at 76% and aiming manually. I keep the WO-help in aiming around just in case, but will be switching him off as well, since I am getting really good at manual shots.
