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.)

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 08:49 PM.
