Hmm, the fix for the upside down flag was in WoS (I just checked and it is corrected in my 1.06 archived zip). It seems that texture was reverted back to stock somewhere along the way.


Edit: and appears it's going to be fixed again, ty Vecko. Could you also look at the NZ flag? It should be the Red Ensign but stock game has the Blue National Flag.

I'll check it out...:yep:

EDIT
Red Ensign flag should be both for military and merchant ships, is that correct? I'm talking about WW2 period of course...

I was referring to the merchants' flag, which should be the NZ Red Ensign according to the wiki.

I'd have to look up the military flag for the WW2 period.


Edit: looks like during WWII the navy ships used the blue National Flag.

"During the Second World War New Zealand ships wore the National Flag in addition to Baffle Ensigns." - from http://navymuseum.co.nz/the-new-zealand-white-ensign/


I don't know if you can set up to have both flags in game (I notice they are currently using the same image file) but I've run into NZ merchants in the game ( even in the Med. ) more often than military (IE: never)

Hi Vecko
Merchant ships flew this flag.
"Red Enisign" also known as the "Red Duster"

Royal Navy Warships flew this flag.
"White Ensign"

Those are British flags. New Zealandís red ensign was posted above by Katze, and the NZ white ensign began to be used in 1968 - it was also different from Britainís white ensign:

The game supports two different flags per nation, one for navy (military) and one for civilian (merchant) ships (see British flags for example), but I'm still not sure which flag to use on which type? :hmmm: Any additional explanation?

To clarify, in WW2 Merchants used the New Zealand Red Ensign :

and New Zealand Navy ships used the blue National Flag (the one currently used in game for all New Zealand ships).

Today restarted my career (for the thousand time :D ) playing 100% realism to see how long i can survive, and to see how much tonnage i can sink full realism.

Completed the Baltic operations successfully with 3 ships sunk...2 Polish and 1 French.
At my surprise, i saw the French was considered neutral in my statistics even though after i received the message telling France was considered at war with Germany!
I sunk him on the 5th September and France was all in red on nav map...

So i think there is a little error here :salute:

:timeout: ok it was middle of night, but was pretty close to this small tanker, and the red seemed red on flag!
Could it be orange then??
To me it was blue white red in the correct order.

…DIT: thinking about it, it was probably the blue by night gives a green stripe...so could be Italian...damm

Could be Belgium maybe? I remember once I made the very same mistake. This is quite possible especially if you use default "greenish" color filters for periscopes...:yep:

Correct :yep: I will never use this green filter again by night to identify flags!

Itís not the first time i canít see the right colors.

Hi guys
 
Hi guys ! :Kaleun_Salute:

I'm new here... I've been playing SH5 some time ago and, of course, never able to finish it, because of the bugs.

Now I've installed latest TWOS megamod and I hope I can deal with it (it seems soooooo different :ping: ).

A couple of questions please

1. How can I (re)install a captain photo ? I have one, but where to put it and how to rename the file ?

2. How can I edit my sub name (U-**) and captain name as to be the same in all places, including reports, logs etc. ?

Thanks guys !!! :Kaleun_Cheers:
