Ya the range deviations from real life for "Gameplay" reasons have always annoyed me. Nice to see someone address this with a mod. :wink:

My problem with this is the anti submarine aspect. It diminishes their early power. To be fair, there were a couple instances of submarines being attacked. I believe a battleship even rammed one. But the reality is that there were few weapons to deal with submarines at the outset of war, but by giving so many ships an anti submarine value, it'll result in them being damaged and sent to port pretty consistently. I love the speed changes otherwise. :) I haven't looked into the weapon ranges, but I'll take yours and Fistalis's word on the improvements and I'm grateful for you putting the work into it. :D

I will probably make another version with 0 attack range for all ships modified with subattack values. I agree it is a problem for subs in early years, when subs were actually a real threat. But still the attack values added (ie for BBs) are still low in general, a sub will survive and kill its opponent if in pack hunt. And you are right for the ramming sub, it was by the HMS Dreadnought :lol: (which need to be added in game btw, like said in anothe rpost).

Yeah, I'm honestly not even that happy about subs being able to attack other subs at this stage, because it was also a very rare thing. lol. In the British AAR I'm going to be playing, I'm kind of debating whether I'm going to use my subs to track the Germans or not, because I'm just not convinced it's a very realistic option. I'm definitely researching the Flower class escort as a priority to give me some kind of genuine anti submarine force. The real big problem with the game is that technology doesn't really improve existing designs. It'd be great if you could research the option to retrofit old designs with the equipment needed to track and combat them, but it just doesn't work that way sadly. :/

Mod updated, the torpedoes attack values for surface naval units was a problem for most submarine, so i decided to remove them in the end.
