Untill now only did my job. BDU asked me to patrol some grids and i did it. after that i looked for some ships or convoys. Whenever i found a large convoy i start to sink the destroyers with torpedos and and the ships with the deckgun.
HERE are my results. :D Not bad i think.

U-29, 4 sept 1939

Encountered Polish steamer An 46. Sunk with deck gun due to night cover + good weather. A torpedo saved!

6th sept 1939 - bounced in the early hours by a brittish bomber while surface running off of shetland islands. Seaman Keitel sprang to action on the AA gun and hit her engines as she leveled off from a failed bombing run... the aircraft exploded from further fire and the deck crew cheered! Karl earned himself a bottle of beer for his exploit, he's only out on his first patrol and already bagged a plane!

16th sept 1939: Encountered Brittish cargo ship (approx 4,000 tons) at BF76 in heavy weather. Pursued and executed surface attack at 500 meters with the rear tube before diving. Hit just for of the stack, dead under the bridge. Remained afloat for 12 hours, despite listing heavily early on.

17th Sept 1939. Crash dived to avoid aircraft off western coast of spain. Spending the day submerged to avoid enemy recce.

U28, 28th Oct 1939
Encountered task force of some kind in shallow waters of the north sea... depth restricted to 60 meters or thereabouts. Depth charged for several hours, sustained minor but repairable damage to the stern dive planes, and some minor hull damage from running aground. Single destroyer seems to haave ran out of depth charges by night fall and left after making two more (apparently dry) attack runs. Surfaced the boat at 3 am the next morning and continued on course for patrol grid, repairing the jammed planes by the next day.

3 Nov 1939

Sunk one ship off the northern tip of scotland, en route to patrol BE99. Medium sized merchant, 5,000 Grt or thereabouts. Continuing to patrol grid.

5th Nov 1939.
Convoy report just 10 km away from me. Moved to engag at 05:30. Penetrated convoy in extreme weather. Fired 2 torpedoes at large merchant- either failed to detonate due to malfunction or ran too deep in the storm. Fired impact torpedo at second merchant from stern tubes and hit. At this point an escort appeared out of the fog and engaged. Took minor damage to the conning tower and some damage to the batteries. Dived to evade. Depth charged. No further damage. Surfaced 3 hours later and located a straggling tanker. Two hits aft from 2 torpedoes and the tanker exploded... possibly carrying gasoline or refined oil? There's no way the merchant I hit aft could survive this storm with probable engine damage, chalked up it's tonnage too.
17,000 tons that won't make it to england.
Pursuing convoy

6th Nov 1939 no sign of the convoy but a lone merchant, 6,000 grt found on it's course... potential straggler. Took three torpedoes to sink... what is it carrying? Balsa wood?

I refuse to return to port with only minor hull damage and only a few days at sea, without even reaching my patrol grid. Setting a course for the Corriantes for resupply, then some action off spain.

9 April 1940:
Goeben departs on another raiding mission. Ran into some real bad weather, so therefore missed attacking convoy on British E coast; CO and crew really disappointed.

The bad weather plagued us all the way out into the Atlantic until we were SSW of Iceland. Finally, we caught a break and headed for Reykjavik...

and ran STRAIGHT INTO a LARGE CONVOY! After dispatching the lead escort, our first merchant target was a LARGE TROOP SHIP (first time I was able to sink the game's stock Passenger Liner...WOOT!:yeah::woot:) Needless to say, the convoy was obliterated.

Returned to port on 21 April 1940, having sunk twenty-seven ships for an impressive 114,807 tons, and even shot down a single Anson patrol bomber en route into the Atlantic. Gunners of all rating were showered with medals and promotions upon return to port.

1 Modern Tanker
1 Medium Tanker
1 Ore Carrier
1 Empire-type Freighter

I had posted the following in "Dumbest way you have died." and while reading these posts noticed that several people have rammed ships and not died. Is my sinking a glitch or did Bernard put me at the wrong place in the wrong time???

After putting two torpedoes onto a small merchant from 500m, I received the "she' going down" signal. I instructed Bernard to return to course and set about rearming my torpedoes, setting the watch and radio my status. When I hear the tearing of metal and I am taking damage. I go to check my status and see damage from the bow to the command area red and filling with water. Repair crews to to the damage area. I check with the Watch officer and find no ships in sight. Not a DD??? Finally I go on deck and find my ship lodged behind the stack of the sinking merchant and unable to repair the damage. I join her in the cold depths of the Atlantic.

@ VONHARRIS: I see your last entry says you installed Alberich at the end of August 1941. Does the game let you do that? Obviously it's possible, but is it via a mod, or is it stock? I ask because the first one was indeed installed in 1940, but it was on a boat under construction, and due to problems encountered they weren't available for regular use until near the end of the war.

I don't think that any of these mods can do that.
I have changed some items on the basic.cfg but these are about renown values for Ubooten and torpedo loads.
Hope this helps.
