It's a bug of a game actually. In Silent Hunter IV and Silent Hunter V is fixed.

I wouldn't say it's "fixed" in SH4, just that the dynamic loading of the game allows a little more room in the RAM, but high TC can still bring the game crashing down around you, as well as getting one sunk... With 512x TC, a second in real time is over eight and a half minutes in game time... Time flies when you are having fun!

After getting bored with the classic Silent Hunter 3 campaign, I decided to play the GWX missions!

The problem is that when the submarine is immersed, I no longer see the arrow on the surface of the water. I'm using the external camera and now is so difficult for me.

Also, on the map, I no longer see the ships as a line but as a point and it is difficult for me to do the calculations on the map.


Please tell me that I can solve these two problems!

A couple of things you could do. Remove all mods and copy all of the "Data / Sea / ShipName / ShipName_shp.tga" files, and copy the "Data / Misc / UMark.tga" (the arrow for your sub submerged) file to a safe location, and then put them back in their respective folders after activating GWX, or find them elsewhere (such as a mod) and copy over the locations in GWX. GWX adds some ships, so you would have to substitute a tga for those. I am not real familiar with SH3 mods, other than the likes of mega-mods such as WAC, GWX, LSH, etc., and I have not tried any of the above... but I did stay at Holiday Inn Express last week... (tired old US joke). The UMark doesn't really help you much, and if you make a mark at the "dot" when you first see it, then do it again in 3 minutes, you have your course, and can calculate the ship's speed, so not having them really isn't that much... of course, I'm somewhat used to playing like that after 12 years of it...

Thank you, now I can see the narrow; I copied "Data / Misc / UMark.tga" and it works.
I can not find "Data / Sea / ShipName / ShipName_shp.tga" file! Do you have other ideea?

It is very nice of you to always help those in need

shipname_shp.tga he meant any suitable folder ships. Example data/Sea/NDD/NDD_shp.tga

Exactly sort of like using a "variable" in a math equation - substitution... there are a lot of ships though...

I think the problem with the narrow is enough... I am so happy, I did my first mission. I sunked Duke of York, even it was not enough to save Scharnhorst I am verry excited. My first mission in GWX. This supermod has a lot of U-boat love to share, from the developers of the mod to players!
Really amazing work.

BTW, today i did some A-10 Thunderbolt II missions in Lock On, great day !

1) When I try to open the "April Fool" mission, after it is loaded, the game closes and no longer enters the mission!
How can I open this mission?

2) In the mission "Curacao" I have two objectives: to sink tankers and to sink tonnage. Even though I sank all 6 ships, it does not appear to me that I complete the second objective, and only 5 sunked ships appear on the map. If I open Captain's Log, I can see all the 6 ships sunked!
I should have done something else on the mission or it's a problem with the game?

Default Circular contact report

Just had one of these, and I know a circle instead of a square means a sub is the lead ship.

But I also got no contact report for it, just the circle showing up that I happened to notice.

It also had no estimated speed, just time and direction.

Google turned up nothing; is this how such convoys are handled by GWX ? I.e. no contact report, no speed, etc. ?

Never mind; re-googlized it and got the answer. Not that it matters; upon intercept got a ctd.

1) Probably game bug because mission is completed. Restart game for fix. 2) Probably you sunk one ship, then your distance from shipwreck was bigger than 50km, then sh3 restored shipwreck as "regular ghost ship" (sh3 known bug), and then probably you sank it again and meanwhile you lost another one.

An addition.

1) Open it like any other mission. There are no quirks in this mission. Your problem lies elsewhere.

2a) Your second objetive is "sink tonnage". Not "sink six ships". Go hunt more! There are more. I have seen a Clemson and one more Tanker in the area. So the second objective is possible. But only if you have the "normal" Campaign-files in use. If you use some "blank" Campaign-files for faster Loading Single-Missions you cant get it.

2b)
 
Technical: Curacao (GWX).mis
Tonnage need=52000
Tonnage for these six ships=47890
So the author of this mission must had intended this.


Greetings.

Let's test more single player missions. We will do work on mistakes.
