The 'edit' button is only accessible when you click on your captain in the 'top captains' column.

Not sure why this isn't working for you, Vecko. Have you tried deleting all your saves and starting a new career?

Please don't do this again if there are problems with the program in the future. I'm sorry that you spent so much time It's my bug.

The program was supposed to write what you already have an account under a different login. Instead, it makes visible that everything is good. I've fixed it on the server side. Just try again. You have registered under the login aaa. I changed it to vdr1981.


vdr1981, why are u still Oberleutnant zur See with Sinking tonnage - 381118? In SH4 you would have been Kapitanleutnant or Korwettenkapitan.

Good question, I was wondering the same.. . Some entries from CareerTrack.upc game save files in SH5 definitely do not work as they should. Captains rank is one of those entries. I'll check some other files inside gamesave folder to see is there maybe some other entries which you can read with KSD Commander....

OK, the only "working" captains description entries are located on top of ActiveUserPlayerUnits.upc inside gamesave folder. You can see example of players advance in following lines, taken form different war periods...

It is clear that these entries are not shown in game...Instead, the game will read values from CareerTrack.upc file, which are broken and can not be updated...

You can also read player current location from CampaignMission.mis file. Tell me if you want to know more about this...

Is there any place in game interface where i can see current rank of my captain? I cant find it. Maybe in stock sh5 there was that place and there isnt that place only in NewUIs?

Or maybe in SH5 there isnt info of captains rank at all? If so i will add ranks in KSDCommander depending on merit points sinking tonnage and number of patrols.

Only here, but as you can see those values are taken from CareerTrack.upc which are messed up and always the same...



I'm pretty much sure it's the same even in stock game...

What about values from ActiveUserPlayerUnits.upc which I showed you two posts ago?

In this file i see only parameters like CurrentExperience, Personality, Leadership etc. But in program i want to release captains rank like Oberleutnant zur see, Kapitanleutnant etc.

If the game does not have ranks for the captains. Well. I have information about the number of patrols, merit points and tonnage. And on the basis of these data, I can realistically increase the ranks.

Thanks too camrade Ansirial i can visualize it. Kapitanleutnant for example:



if you see some inaccuracies in the form please let me know.

That sounds even more realistic in my opinion...

I'm also creating small modification which will make visible only first medal of the same class, while other duplicates will be ignored, something like this...



Can you do something similar in KSDCommander?

Yes i can. I will remove duplicate awards.

But in game there isn't some awards and awards are given for some illogical principle. I want to make sure that the awards will be given to historical criteria. I will make option for it.

Is it possible to make mod which will do so the game will not longer give me any awards? Maybe make unreachible criterias for rewarding them? And also delete the button that show this window:



I want to make for myself that KSDCommander will rewarding me, not the game.

Medal criteria in SH games are still a bit of mistery for me but I really doubt that there is too much logic and historical accuracy in it.
For example, I know for sure that in SH5 the game will give you IronCross2nd class for almost every patrol with more than 1000 merit/renown points, 2000 point or soo IC 1st class ect...Other available medals requires more of something but I'm still not sure what (tonnage , renown or maybe certain ship class )
All in all, if we ignore duplicated medals issue, medals system in SH5 could work more or less OK ...
