There are many contributor to this mod, if I left out anyone is not intentional and I apologize in advance for this. Also many thanks to Ruby2000 and Ustahl for testing the mod while under developement, they helped a lot in tracking down problems and have them fixed.

Changed mod name because some of the german players found a bit weird the naming "Das Campaign". This mod is a improvement over my first attempt to create and extended campaign, Open Horizons.

The mod is in public beta test. Instead of releasing patches that sould solve problems reported by the players, we decided to release a public beta test version first. After gathering bug reports and fix them all, we will release a final version. Hopefully this will happen soon.

====================================== Important Notes=======================================


Important notes.

Installing
The mod is compatible with TDW UI, FX and IRAI. Install OHII last.
JSGME ready.

Starting New Career
Just click "New Campaign" - enter your name and select the first campaign "Coastal Waters". Skip the tutorial.

UPDATE: The tutorial is now working (from v1.7) so you can install your mods and OHII to play the tutorial. If you use TDWs UI, you need to enable the strategic marker on the TIA. You can do this with the options button at the base of the TAI (small target shap button).

If you do have problems with the tutorial - use the info below to start your career.

When starting a new campaign using OHII - DO NOT PLAY THE TUTORIAL - you will get a ctd when returing to Kiel at the end of the tut. Select "Skip Tutorial" when starting.
If you are not getting an option to skip the tutorial when starting a new career, go to Documents\SH5\data\cfg\CareerHistory.cfg and edit the file with Notepad. Change the following line:

HasCompletedTutorial=false
with
HasCompletedTutorial=true

Play Any Campaign
This is done by using the SilentOtto command - see here

Campaign Progress
Within each campiagn (i.e. coastal Waters) there are main objectives to achieve. These will be things like "Patrol the East UK coastal shipping area". As you achieve kills, tonnage is recorded on the progress bar and it will fill so you can keep track of your progress. When the bar is full, you have achieved the objective and will be awarded crosses to fill your campaign bar.
Most of these objectives a time/date related and if you fail to fill the progress bar within that time - you will fail the objective.

Failing the objective will not stop your campaign. You may have some blocked objectives or even blocked campaigns as a result, but your career will continue.

If you finish an objective within the time frame given, a new one will be triggered. If you fail within the time a new one will be triggered. Sometimes there is no trigger and then you may not get a new one untill a later date. When this happens, you should go out and patrol anywhere you like, hunting any ship you like. this is a good time to test your skills by trying some harbour raids etc.
When the time comes for a new objective, you will be sent a radio message informing you that new objectives are ready. You do not need to return to port and select it. You can just go and start the new objective from where you are. You do not need to select an objective from the main briefing map (except Triumph of the Wolfpack and the Training Drills for WA and TP).

When you do select an objective from the main briefing map, you will also be given a secondary mission. This will be thing like "Drop of supplies at area X" see here for an example When you achieve these secondary missions, you will be rewarded with extra renown points that you can use to upgrade your u-boat. If you do not do these secondary missions - there is no penalty.

See here for campaign and mission objectives and how they work Clicky Click

Campaign Objective - Triumph of the Wolfpack (TotWP)
With version 1.7 and higher, I have added a new type of campaign objective. Now when you play Triumph of the Wolfpack, you will get to take part in actual wolfpacks. This is done using the secondary missions that you get when you request mission in the briefing map as normal. Now for most objectives, this does not matter if you pick these missions or not. With TotWP, they are required.
So to play this campaign objective, click the request button and you will get an orange marker on your map. You then go on patrol as normal - but his time you must sail to these markers. If you meet a convoy while you are heading there and decide to attack it, you should think about re-arming before going to these marker.
If you do dicide to re-arm - goto a near by base and select "refit". If you went back to the bunker do not select end patrol. If you do then you will need to go back to the briefing map and select a new mission. I have only made three of these missions so far and each time you return to port, it uses one up even if you did not go there.

So - when you arrive at the markers a message will be sent to you. These messages can be sent to you by the stock game and so can be read in the captian log button. You can also get them sent by TDWs radio mod. These can be read the normal way and will have a red background (sometimes you may not get one, but will get the other - looking into why this happens). Both these message types will drop your TC to preset number and play a sound. Pay close attention to these messages as you will be told to go to map areas etc. The next stage, when this happens is triggered by you doing the task as in the message. So if you do not check the messages you get - you will not be able to continue the wolfpack attack and be recorded in history as the u-boat that did not show. At some point a message will be sent ordering you and the other boat in the wolfpack to attack. This is always the last order you will be given and you should act on your own data from then on.

Sink em all


Campaign Monsun Gruppe
This campaign was added in version 1.9 and adds the Indian Ocean. Many new harbours, nations and shipping had to be added. Anyone looking to edit this campaign - the files are not common with other campaigns, so must not be shared.
As the campaign is based on the Monsun Boats, I have tried to follow this as much as I could but there are some limitations with the game as it is now.

IX Type boats.
Due to the large distances to get to the Indian Ocean - the IX type boat was used due to its greater range and load out. This type of boat is not in the game yet and if it ever does make it, I will add it then. But for now we are stuck with the type VIIC41.

Refuelling.
Refueling and spares was one of the biggest challenges that the boat faced (other than air attacks) and OHII tries to add this. Resupply tankers are used in most objectives in the campaign, but a game limitation restricks you to one refuel only (I had always wanted to use two) per patrol (leaving and returning to dock).
EDIT: Resupply is now fixed by TDW - Use his patcher to fix this bug

Historical refittings from German tankers moored in Spanish ports:

Historical refittings from German tankers in the Atlantic and Indian Ocean:
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...postcount=2158
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...postcount=2159



If you are caught out with low fuel and can not get a resupply - I have a work around:-

Quote:
Save game and note the time that you saved and then exit to desktop.
Open your docs and goto here - C:\Users\Owner\Documents\SH5\data\cfg\SaveGames
Look for your save game (by date and time that you noted). It may not be the top one as those are auto saves - normally 3rd one down.
Open that folder and look for - GameplaySettings.cfg
open that file with notepad and it will look like this:-

[Current]
LimitedBatteries=true
LimitedCompressedAir=true
LimitedO2=true
LimitedFuel=true <<<<<<< change true to false
RealisticRepairTime=true
ManualTargetingSystem=true
NoMapUpdate=true
RealisticSensors=true
DudTorpedoes=true
RealisticReload=true
NoEventCamera=true
NoExternalView=false
NoStabilizeView=true
MPShowPlayerNames=false
MPShowTorpedoes=false
NoShipHealthBar=true
NoGunProjectilePath=true

Change the line to say "LimitedFuel=false"
save file.
Load your save game and you will have unlimited fuel so you can reach port and either dock or refit.

You can then change your fuel settings back to limited.
There is also a mod that can be used to give your boat the spec of a IX.
See here for the mod by FromHell Boat Type IX


Note:
When you are in the Bunker - check that you can get to ask the officer for upgrades. If this option is greyed out (this normally happens when you progress to a new campaign or use the silentotto trick) - save/load to fix.
If you do not do this your game will not show a loading screen when you enter your boat. If this happens - dock straight away.
Leaving the bunker like this, the game will fail to load properly and weird stuff can happen, including CTDs.

CTDs
Getting CTDs and have a 32bit os vista/win7. You are most likely running out of ram.
See here http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...&postcount=316

Only change you mods when you are in the bunker or you know what you are doing.
Dock in bunker - save game - exit game and make changes - load the game and your saved game.
Now when you go on patrol - the correct file info is loaded for the whole patrol.
Note: If mod change is campaign, crew or boat spec related - you may need to restart your career.

Long Patrols
When you save your game - lots of information is saved. Your campaign progress is also saved and is set out per patrol. If you use "refit" (refuel and re-arm) rather than "End Patrol", your patrol info get longer and longer. Some have said this may also be a cause of ctds. I never use refit more than once per patrol.

CTDs during Scapa Raid

Just to return to an issue in the earlier thread, I just came out of port for a new campaign (Black Pit) to test out the new 1.5. Six Allied aircraft came overhead to hit the base & surrounding ships - bang, CTD.

I'm starting to wonder whether it's something to do with aircraft attacks on the zombie ships, or the imported ones, as this is several times now I've seen planes go overhead and CTD just seconds later?

Just for your info Trevally, maybe it'll help. Think I read that Rongel found unusual effects with torpedoes on the imported ships, maybe something similar is happening with planes?

Thanks for the list of ships Trevally!

How does the number of ships compare now with the like of SH3 + GWX? Are we still a long way off?

Does SHV have british or american AI subs?

Ok that was a tough nut to crack

Fixed ctds caused by air raids on you base in TheBlackPit and DistantWaters.

Remove Patch1 and install Patch2 when in bunker.

@0rpheus or anyone else who was playing these campaigns.
Sorry but you need to load a save game before starting those campaigns after installing patch2. When you then progress to TheBlackPit - your ctds will be fixed.

Download Patch2 here

Not a fair question.
GWX is a magamod
OHII is a campaign mod
If you want to know about extra ships in SH5, then check the mod by Uekel

Only UK and Germany have AI subs in SH5 so far

Nice, glad to be of help What was it in the end, if you don't mind me asking?

I've seen quite a few occasions where aircraft have immediately preceded CTDs, throughout nearly, if not all the campaigns, but it's very hard to tell in any single case. That area of France, especially late war has always had loads, most often approaching Brest etc. But it makes me wonder (depending on what the problem was) whether this is the cause of many of those seemingly random CTDs - an aircraft attack or something else generated by the game layer that occur outside the sub's visual range, but is enough to CTD it (think about how many planes are spawned in response to player sinkings etc).

Some of it no doubt is still memory useage, but I'd bet a fair wager that over 50% of the CTDs are teeny tiny things like this that slip through, and it's just a matter of time before they all get spotted and fixed.

Restarting with new patch

As far as happening anywhere else, tbh it could be all kinds of places, especially late-war when planes become more common.

The ctds with the planes are not when they attack any particular ship.
It is just too much going on.

I tested with all SH5 ships removed and just had zonbies ships is harbour. 8 planes attacked this time - it was a fine sight 4 ships sunk and 3 planes down. I had left the DDs in game and they were firing to kill the planes. Each ctd happened with an explostion, either plane blowing up or boat being hit.

When the harbour was fully loaded = ctd a lot faster.
So I stil think this is a system mem issue even for 64bit users.

To fix - I stopped the air attacks on the harbours
