So, for a while I have wondered how to aim torpedoes in this new rework, just got back on the game. No white thing, how is it done?

hit #3 and your reticle should come up...and its a "cone" and match your cone to the target ship (put cursor on ship and hit "X") and fire away...if target does nothing then  you have a good chance to hit with some of the torps you shot.

Well, I don't see any way to turn them off outside of running a mod, so that shouldn't be a problem.

If this is with a surface ship, as Morpheous said, select your torps, select a target, and an aim assist (really a lead indicator) will pop up and you should be good to go.

If your talking with Carriers, nothing but practice, not hard against non-maneuvering targets, but it takes some guess work against targets that turn.

Experience, spend some time torpedoing moving but non-firing ships in a training room to get your aiming down without worrying about plane losses. With most BB's you want the trailing edge of the torpedo arc near the bow, or cruisers a bit more lead, and for DD's a lot more lead.

Thanks man! I'll try and do some practice. In a stroke of luck, last game I got a DD all on my own with HE bombs!

Glad I could help, using planes is like gunfire, experience is the key.

You should NEVER use torpedoes if you're playing an aircraft carrier; rely solely on your guns!

Speed, range, angle - using TB's is like using a ship gun with big, slow rounds. Depending on ships speed/acceleration I find 1-3x the width of the cone is the lead you want. But overall - it's going to take practice.
