just installed the latest upgrade to v1.02 build 1147.14
and started playing the new surface tutorials.. just to see if there were more things I could learn to make myself more Surface Warfare pin qualified.
One of the things I noticed, playing tutorial 1.4 is the use of Sprint/Drift, and while I'd attempted to use it playing other scenarios, I'd never actually noticed it action, due to my attention being drawn elsewhere in whatever particular scenario I was playing.
Anyway, I'm wondering if there is a way to change the default setting of 4nm "drift" to a different value, since I am just now paying attention to this feature, maybe the experts have decided that is the best drift length? but seems to me to "drift" for 4 nm at 5 kts takes up almost an hour of "sim time". Which while not long in the usual grand scheme, I wonder if having the ability to change it from 4 mn to say 2 nm, would be of value. Obviously going to a value of > 1 nm would probably defeat the purpose, I do wonder if having the ability to set from say 4 to 2 nm drift would help isolate subs in that situation.
What are your thoughts?
