That's because nothing happens by magic. For SH3 Commander to give the ship a name someone would have to find out exactly what ship type it was in real life, do some research on the names that type of ship had, make a list of those names and add them to Commanders Ship Names list, and do it in the proper format to make it work.

With my Ship Names mod you get names for all the imported SH4 ships and IABL's MFM, but I haven't done any new ships since last April, and don't plan on starting any in the foreseeable future.

I already knew that stuff.
In fact I have added more names and other classes in your Ship Names.
Congartulations on your job done here for the original file!
In this case I have added the line : NFWS=NOTCW
so that the class will be named after the converted whale factory ship class , no result though.
The .cfg file of the data/Sea files is:

[Unit]
ClassName=NWFS
UnitType=102
MaxSpeed=11
Length=180
Width=17.8
Mast=41.5
Draft=7
Displacement=16625;GRT
DisplacementVariation=100
RenownAwarded=400

Name3=Engines Room
Area3=207,13,52,18
Name4=Fuel Bunkers
Area4=261,13,30,18

What am I doing wrong here?
The procedure described above has worked for other classes.

Have you checked to make sure the ClassName matches in the unit .cfg file in the '...Roster\xxxxx\Sea' folder? :hmmm:

Oberleutnant z. S. Ernst Klein commanding U-53.

What's there to say, winter in the North Atlantic. The weather absolutely sucked. But high seas and rain can't deter this crew from completing their mission. We actually cruised into a convoy with decks awash due to the rain and fog. Managed to send three of em to the bottom, but we were getting too close to land and too shallow for my taste, so we headed back to deep water, and found another convoy, escorted by a Revenge class. Oops, sorry there good buddy, kinda sunk your battleship.:arrgh!: Received the U-boat badge and Iron Cross, second class upon return to base.

Well, the first thing I see is that in the Ship Names list you have NFWS=NOTCW and in the [unit] listing you have NWFS. If you made the typo there then it won't recognize it. If you made the typo here then I don't know what the problem is.

Missing Name 10-29-11 09:13 PM

Waiting around the waters around Scandanavia, I watched a friendly tramp steamer. I also saw the massive British task force steaming very quickly the same way. I think the shell from the Nelson was larger than the tramper was...

That was the mistake and I never saw it.
Thank you.

Oberleutnant z. S. Ernst Klein commanding U-53.

Transferred back to U-flotilla Wegener.

Boy, first convoy we found had some nice targets, and only 2 escorts. Hit a large merchant that went up instantly. One eel and the fireworks began. Must have been carrying ammo or explosives, or I hit her fuel tank. Oh, and who says playing chicken with destroyers is a bad idea?:o

Received Iron Cross first class and U-boat front clasp upon arrival at base.
