Default CTD problems

If I start a new career in August/September 1939, it's smooth sailing. But as time progresses I start getting more and more CTDs, until by September 1940 I can't leave Wilhelmshaven without a CTD (either during loading, or within kilometers of leaving the harbor locks).

This is my current mod setup:

Sh3Weather
Sh3Commander
WarAceCampaign 5.0
WAC5.0 Campaign_Atlantic_Baltic
WarAceCampaign 5.0 Patch_5.01
WAC5.0 Full_Interior
WAC5.01 H.sie Supplement to V16B1_Atlantic_Baltic_Campaign (with all of the options selected for h.sie's hardfix except Wolfpk less contact reports)
O2-Gauges v2
torpedo trail and wake fix
WAC_5.01_WhaleChaser_Fix
Visible Flags_moderate
Zones Config
Dials scroll speed
Auto Plot Kiel Canal WAC5
damage texture 1.0
no officer at helm station fix
Gameplay Settings Realism Adjustment

After (literally) several days of experimenting, the most likely culprit seems to be the WAC5.0 Campaign_Atlantic_Baltic mod. If I do not have that enabled I'm able to create a new career in October 1940 (Type IXB, 2nd Flotilla, Wilhelmshaven) and successfully travel several days without a CTD.

My current system specs are:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3601 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
Installed Physical Memory (RAM): 16.0 GB
Adapter Description: AMD Radeon (TM) R7 370 Series
Adapter RAM: 4096 Mbytes

Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated.

Danke!


Update: I also experience CTDs at times simply pressing F5 (nav map), F7 (crew/station window), or shift-U (mount UZO). For instance, I'm just passing through the outer lock doors and press F5 to examine the map, and the game CTD.

@Schlechter_Pfennig

Try without Full Interiors! I suspect them responsible for random CTD.

I have a three-monitor setup, and didn't think any of them could run that res. I thought the best I could get was 1600 x 900 . . . but that was the recommended resolution, not the max res. Turns out I can bump that up to 1920 x 1080 . . .

. . . and wow!!

Default GPU intense!

Out of curiosity, especially after again reviewing:
System requirements:

CPU: 3-4GHz CPU –more high frequenzy is better
RAM: 4GB free RAM – more can avoid stuttering
GPU: AMD 7750 and higher or Nvidia GTX660 and higher with 2GB RAM

I decided to run GPU-Z.2.7.0, a spiffy little Video Card Information Utility program, and wow! WAC 5.0 sure is graphics intense! In particular four values greatly change between normal operation and running SH3 WAC: GPU Core Clock, GPU temperature, GPU Load, and VDDC.

  • During normal operation:
GPU Core Clock: 450MHz
GPU temperature: 59.0 C
GPU Load: 0%
VDDC: .900
  • During SH3 WAC:
GPU Core Clock: 1050 MHz
GPU temperature: 74-81 C
GPU Load: 72%-100%
VDDC: 1.163

To be fair, I haven't as yet examined the GPU intensity of other supermods, so I don't know how they compare. But HanSolo78 wasn't kidding when he said this was graphics intense!

I've tried it and, so far, I'm really impressed with it. I do have two questions, however:

  1. I no longer can open and close the hatches (shift-H, ctrl-H).
  2. I can't scroll through the messages (ex. "Depth under keel is 20 meters", "No warship sound contact", etc.)

1-open/close hatches (such rise up/down obs persicope) is a graphic animation from full interior mod, it is not included in WS mod

2-You click and drag to the left of the hours (not direct of the hours) or you place the mouse to the left of the hours and you press arrow up or down

Default Are Red Cross freighters legitimate targets?

Are Red Cross freighters legitimate targets? Or are they considered the same as hospital ships?
