radar Refueling

Hey guys,

I just started the North Western Approaches mission, and as I'm a little concerned with fuel. Are we able to refuel in neutral ports? I don't really see any friendly ports anywhere that would be helpful for this area.

Thanks again.

I dont know, but you should not to show yourself before neutrals, they are not to be trustworthy, you just cant to sink them thats all.

I always hide before neutral freighter.

How long have you been out? You should have enough fuel for a month or more, unless you run at full speed all the time

Average 10 knots, more than a month.

I just started my 4th patrol, but I just worked out the distance just to my secondary patrol zone and back is something like 7200km, which does give me some room and all, but I was wondering if I ended up needing fuel, but was still good on torpedoes if I had another option than going all the way back to Wilhelmshaven.

Default War badge

Also, I thought after your 3rd patrol you were awarded the U-Boat War Badge? As I said in my last post, I just started my 4th patrol and haven't received any medals or commendations.

Hey Alex, if you are in 1940, there is a resupply ship docked in Cadiz harbour you can use.
It's there from February to November 1940.

I went there from south west Ireland, and it was around a 1000km shorter than going back to Wilhelmshaven.
But if you are on North western approaches it may be a similar distance to both I guess.

John.

Exclamation KSD Commander

Hey guys,

This one is another separate issue (I think.) When I start KSD Commander, up in the top right, where you login, it says:
"Database connection error. Could not allocate space for object 'dbo.career_tracks'.'P K career tracks' in"

I'm assuming it's supposed to say more, but that's all that is visible. It also crashed once.
I took a picture, but now I can't figure out how to include it in this post.
Thanks for your time,
AV

Thanks John, I've never used a resupply ship. How do I use it? Do I request a resupply via the radio man, or can I just show up at the ship?

No worries. When you get into the harbour area, and near enough to it, the anchor will show at the top of your screen.....same as when you dock/refit at home base. Just click it and then choose refit.

Hi
Can someone confirm if you need the steam workaround for the Uplay version as well, I can't get it to work.
Followed instructions carefully on a clean Uplay install. Game starts to load but goes to a black screen and needs a hard reset.
Using Win 10 and tried compatibility mode for XPSP3, Win 7 & Win 8.

Hi Miggs

Is only for STEAM.
All other versions are compatible with TWOS.

The black screen can last several minutes before you see something again, just be patient.

P.S. You will get another brief one when you load a save game.
