SHIII Comander is a mod, that among other things, adds the those details (ship name, cargo, crew lost) at the end of your patrol.

OSU 12-19-10 09:55 PM

Actually, SH3 Commander is not a mod, it is sort of an add-on to the game. It does not change the game like a mod would. It just adds more immersion.

reignofdeath 12-19-10 10:29 PM

Point is I have Sh3 Commander and GWX and it doesnt do the cargo and crew lost and stuff like that, just ships and their names.? Forgot to mention that part lol

Sailor Steve 12-19-10 11:21 PM

Do you have the latest version, 3.2? That is the only one that does it. If you do have that version I don't know what's wrong, because it works out of the box for most people.

Gargamel 12-19-10 11:24 PM

May have to enable the option in the settings though.

reignofdeath 12-19-10 11:28 PM

I just checked its 3.2.. hmmm

Sailor Steve 12-19-10 11:30 PM

Gargamel might have a point. Check under Career Options and make sure that Use Historic Ship Names is checked. I didn't think it would give names at all without it, but you never know...

reignofdeath 12-19-10 11:34 PM

Says Use Real Ship Names in patrol log, and that is checked.

Gerald 12-19-10 11:40 PM

Then everything is fine!

Gargamel 12-20-10 12:17 AM

Try randomize ship tonnage?

Gerald 12-20-10 12:24 AM

I've tried but I think it sucks,but of course, try this not hurt :lurk:

I'm having the same problems. I also get ship names in my patrol logs, but never any crew lost or cargo information. It's a strange problem...

I'm beginning to wonder if it's an OS problem. I have windows Vista Home Edition 32 Bit....what do you run?

Missing Name 12-20-10 07:31 AM

U-127, Kapitanleutnant Ohne ein Namen.
Type IXB: 10.5cm deck gun, 2 FlaK/30 Zwilling.
Patrol 24, set out from Lorient. Early July, 1942.

....

July 12: Intercepting a small merchant. She is unaware of our presence. Took a good 10 minutes to sink after a torpedo to the middle.

Alright, enough with the dates. I'll just tell you all why I love the IX so much. Took down a destroyer with the deck gun and sank the ships in the small convoy. Slight damage.

Pissed off an ASW trawler. Destroyed my radio, sonar, hydrophone, periscopes, aft batteries, FlaK guns, and brought my fuel down to less than 25% after a fit to the tanks. Made it back from the Carribean to Lorient with a bit less than 10% of my fuel remaining. 37% hull integrity. (And no 10.5 shells left.)

U-505 29th patrol
 
Yesterday night I completed the most succesful patrol ever : 185000 tons
The renown I took was 5000 points.

It took place in the Med.
I will post the patrol log soon. I am posting this from my laptop because I can not wait to go home to post the complete report.

I even sunk the RMS TITANIC!

EDIT : I am posting the logs

Nice haul!

Funny though... you dont have any "average" ships, theyre either huge or tiny lol.

VONHARRIS 12-22-10 12:56 AM

@Gargamel ,
Yes indeed. The engagements were one after the other and I was extremely lucky finding them. Moreover everyone of these huge targets went down with the first torpedo salvo.

It is the first time for all the years I have been playnig SH3 that this happened.

Gargamel 12-22-10 02:44 AM

Oops I did it again!
 
Woot! Encountered another convoy with just a single ASW escort. I figured this could never happen again, I assumed the tommies would have learned from the first slaughter!

There were 2 "neutrals" (greek) in there too, sank one, left one to pick up the survivors. As it was getting dark, I "marked" the "rescue" boat by blowing off it's cargo with my AA guns.

But then....
On my way back to base, after being recalled before the invasion of Norway, I just about got ran over by a task force. Turns out it was the Hood and a Revenge. Managed to get 3 hits on each. Apparently they turned around and came back. Ran out of torpedos, after I had disabled the Revenge. :nope: Coulda bagged another 2 capital ships. Least they'll be out of action for a while.

Here's them about to run into each other in panic.
