I'm looking for the exact date when we see new base icon appearing on nav map.
Shouldn't it be the dates of the Axis_NavalBase file?
Like this:

[Unit 17]
Name=St. Nazaire
Class=NavalBase
Type=407
Origin=German
Side=2
Commander=0
CargoExt=-1
CargoInt=-1
CfgDate=19380101
DeleteOnLastWaypoint=true
DockedShip=false
GameEntryDate=19400621 <--------------------------------
GameEntryTime=1200
GameExitDate=19450508 <---------------------------------
GameExitTime=2359
EvolveFromEntryDate=true
Long=-262889.000000
Lat=5675333.000000
Height=-20.460619
Heading=180.000000
Speed=0.000000
CrewRating=3
DelayMin=0
ReportPosMin=-1
ReportPosProbability=100
SecondsUntilReport=-53.513515
HighPrioContact=false
RandStartRadius=0.000000
TacticalUnit=false
AvailStartDate=19400621
AvailEndDate=19450508
NextWP=0

Game entry date should make base icon appear on map?
Game exit date should make desapear the base icon?

i only mapped the boats to flotillas/bases vs dates. i did not analyze the Axis_NavalBase file. if there is a base availability issue in the base file that is not in sync with the Flotillas file or the CareerStart file then there will be problems.


on a separate but related note, i noticed that you released a new set of mod for OpsM. Congratulations. did you fix the date issues in the Flotillas files? there is at least one invalid date reference in that file and some other dates that appear to be out of sync. just asking ....as i have not downloaded your new mods.

The dates question was to synchronize the new radio messages that i added in my compilation.

I was not aware of those dates issues youíre talking about...didnít know.

It's fantastic to see someone is still working on OM. Bravo!

One question though: Have you ever played to the point when a new conning tower is awarded? There is a very nasty bug in OM that prevents the player from continuing the career:

Maybe you could come up with a solution to this problem...

I have very limited skills in modding.
I wish someone like HanSolo from WAC5 or VDR1981 from TWOS could look into this OM mod and find solutions to the few issues it seems to have.
From what i have played yet, other than the sound playing mess, i didnít encounter any game breaker bug.
But iím still Far from 1942 and any upgrade to get
When time will come, iíll See what happens

I can't move the deck gun and crew manning the gun is not able to do this as well. They are just firing straight on 0-degree course. Anyone had a similar problem?

Nope.
Must be an issue on your side...

I have intercepted several american tankers in the Baltic Sea during the 1939 campaign.
Seemed weird to me, is that a possible thing or an error?

In fact, i donít know in reality if American tankers were sailing in Baltic Sea

Didnít they trade with Russia? Or maybe Finland or Poland...

No idea why there are US tankers in the Baltic in the game during 1939 but:

- US is still neutral and so was liable to trade with non-belligerents anywhere;

- The USA was the world's largest oil producer and exporter in 1939; and

- It is not inconceivable that Sweden and or the Baltic States, lacking indigenous oil resources, would buy American oil and this would necessitate US flagged tankers entering the European war zone to trade with neutrals.

Not saying that this is what you're seeing but it is certainly within the realm of possibility unless you have positive data for precisely where the neutral states got their oil supplies.

Don't get me wrong guys, I was just asking for advice since I have never seen something like this before.
I was in doubt about it being an error or a possible thing.
It's all right now
