Problem is i didnít find his flag in the flag chart :hmmm:
It was blue/white/red horizontal striped, the blue on top, but with a small logo in the white stripe...
The one most approaching in the chart was the Yugoslavian one, but at this time it was neutral/friend.
A shame a forgot to take a screen shot :oops:

So, in the doubt, i decided to surface to see if he started to zig zag (hence an ennemy)
He didnít change his course...
So to make sure, i ordered my deck gun men to fire at will...and they started to fire!
So i thought it was definitely an ennemy...and i sunk it with my deck gun.
At the end, he turned 90į and try to head towards England.

Final result was an ennemy on the destroyed mark, and was credited so.
But impossible to know what was this country flag :hmmm:
He was coming from south and heading North/North Est with no illumination.

Could you draw a picture of what it looked like? That might help narrow it down.

Closest I can find to what you describe (excluding Communist Yugoslavian flags) is the naval ensign of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, 1922 - 1944.

No this is not the one Cybermat.
The logo in the white stripe was smaller (only in the white) and seemed horizontally...donít even remember what it was exactly :oops:

Never saw this flag before in any SH!

Don't forget that you can check flags in recognition manual as well. It seems that South African flag is missing from standard flags chart and I don't there is enough place to squeeze one more in... :hmm2:

Is the South African flag blue white red horizontal like the Yugoslavian ?
I thought it has some green and black...

Hereís the South African flag of WWII. The modern one is different for obvious reasons.

Well, the South African flag in the game is upside down, and the orange is rather dark, so it could be it.

Bingo Cybermat!! :up:

This is the one!
Effectively the orange stripe looks red to me in the night... :oops:

So this South African flag wasnít in the flag chart...hence my doubt for neutrality.

Hi Guys
Might be of interest to those who would like to jazz up their SH3 Dials.

Hi guys,

Would be nice if we could use the binoculars while decks awash.

I realized i couldnít use it when was trying to approach some destroyer for flag identification.

Maybe some day Vecko could fix this :salute:

Incorrect South African flags are now fixed, together with few more flag problems like incorrect German flag shown in the museum (info card) and missing "Free Netherlands" flags on ships. :yep:

I will also add in the next TWoS update:
- Initial loading screen updated with additional "Black screen pause" note and "Best of Subsim 2017" badge.
- Edited appearance dates of FuMB-1 Metox radar warning receiver, FuMO-29 radar and Bold1 decoys according to historical dates in single missions and campaign.
- Added "Russian fonts patch" with appropriate install instructions.
- Add better description for some TWoS optional mods and add-ons.
- Edit some ingame texts and tool-tips for better understanding.
- Add more recognition manual additional info entries for various ship types.
- Fix some incorrectly placed traffic in few British ports.

I am also experimenting something with U-boat radars in order to get even airplane contacts showing on radar displays but I have encountered some CTD problems...:hmmm:

Next update is scheduled for the end of the month because I'm in the process of provider change and my internet is very limited now.

At the and, I have obligation and honor to once again say big thank you to the Captains of steel who have kindly supported my work with generous donations since last update: Richard Roberts, David "HW3" Stevens, Ales "Kikinado" Bily, Dale Francisco, Christian "Kuddell1982" Eilmes and Yangfan Xu.

Cheers and Happy Hunting! :salute::salute::salute:
