U-Boat Sight By Enemies

Post by SimTheSor » Tue Aug 27, 2019 4:04 pm

Hello fellow strategist,

I'd like to know why those ships don't attack me.
You could say, that they are buissy with the other (non U-Boat) ships, but that is not the case.
I encountered this several times w/ submarines (over surface) and enemies in two hex-field distance (like in the attached picture), when no other ships were around.

Can't they see me even when being over surface?

... (if I add a picture, the status doesn't say anything. I'm pretty sure I attached a picture years ago ... )

add: From the FAQ:


"Why can’t I add attachments?

Take a look in this thread, particularly about how they changed submarine mechanics: https://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewto ... 64&t=76808

Regarding picture attachments, they need to be of certain types and below certain file size limits.

From the link given by bru888:
"First off, surfaced submarines are now much harder to spot. Previously, they could be spotted by any surface ship or aircraft as long as they were in visible range. Now, they will only be spotted by adjacent ships: this allows brave submarine captains to take risks and gamble. Surfaced submarines can move at a higher speed to close in on merchant convoys or stalk enemy fleets. On the other hand, while a submerged submarine is slower, it can only be detected by sonar."

Oh if I would have known that before I finished this glorious campaign :cry: :D

There have been three major changes to this game which are not in the manual:

Order of Battle: the new Specialization System
Order of Battle: the new Import tool
A look at the new features of Order of Battle: Kriegsmarine

They really should think about updating that manual.

To update the manual would really be a delight!
Nevertheless OoB is one of my preferred games since years!
