This is because you have OHII installed.
OHII changes the hogIsland to a new type.

This means the SS Chapman will not show in your game - but all other units will show.

Hello everyone. My name is Rob. I LOVE WWII games of any sort and as soon as I saw screenshots from SH5, I knew I had to have it. My wife and I spent our honeymoon on the Queen Mary. I am a maritime historian going back to when I was 4 and saw a picture of the Lusitania sinking. I was hooked. I had to know everything about ships. When I was 13, I made a web page about the Titanic in Windows Notepad using all HTML code and linked it to every major search engine that was available at the time and it won many awards from Yahoo at the time.

Here's my issue, I have downloaded this single mission and have activated it in the game with JSGME. JSGME says that it's activated. When I enter the game and go to the Historical Missions, it's the first mission that comes up. If I open it in Mission Editor (which I have NO idea how to use) everything comes up as it should and I can see the Queen Mary's waypoints. It seems that the ship actually has a waypoint right in front of my original waypoint. Anyway, after 8 failed missions I have yet to locate the QM. I ran across a troop transport that was escorted by two destroyers and sank all three of them, but the transport was a two stack ship that doesn't even resemble the QM.

My question is, what am I missing? How can it possibly be this hard to find a 1,035 foot long ship in the Irish Sea? Is there any way to check if the mission is properly installed? I know alot about computers and I actually built this one but I know nothing about how to use these programs. Is there a place I need to be on the map? Any help would be appreciated.

BTW, I found one of my old WWII games the other day, Command: Aces of the Deep and an old DOS game called WolfPack. Kind of cool to reminisce.

Hi Rob, welcome to Subsim!

Can't say I've used the SH5 mission editor yet, but I remember all to well from my SH3 days just how tricky, (and downright misleading) waypoints can often be.

And that even when you appear to be right on top of them!

If it was me, I'd double check to make sure we're on maximum zoom before estimating her position. If that still doesn't nail her down, you could always have a look at this tutorial in order to edit the waypoints (and starting spawn position) for yourself:

http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=164578

Once you know where she's gonna start, the task of making contact should be a lot easier. Good luck, and I hope you find her in your scope soon!

Hi ConnersDaddy,

some people reported that they have to 'buy' the official Ubisoft Queen Mary mission via Uplay credit points before they could see the 'real' Queen Mary in the game. This changes some .ini files and forces the game to use the correct model instead of the two stack PLConteVerde. Because I own the download version of SH5 I got the correct model right from the start. If the Queen Mary appears in the museum then you should see her in the mission as well.

The waypoints in the mission 'Ambush of RMS Queen Mary' are set randomly to some extent. Therefore she must not be exactly at the waypoints that you'll see in the editor. The area where she may appear is designated by the circles around each waypoint.

Good luck!

You need JSGME, that is "Jonesoft Generic Mod Enabler".
