what you experienced happens from time to time when you sink a ship that was previous detected by your sensors but was not detected when you sank it.
it is an unexpected feature of SH4.
you should receive credit for the sinking.

That's exactly what happened. Radar spotted it, but my lookouts never saw it even though I could see it with Binocs. My gun crews wouldn't even engage. I sank it myself with the deck gun.

Doing Subron50, just got back from 3rd patrol and was offered a new boat. As I've never played long enough for this to happen, Yea or Nay?


I had saved before ending patrol so I accepted to see what happened and it sent me to PH on USS Balao.

I reloaded the save and declined. I got orders to head back to U.S. east coast and then to PH.

New London is the home port. It's were I left at the start of the game. As you can see, I'm supposed to return there, then refit and head to PH.

I've had this problem crop up before in a previous game, which was date related. It could be the date but I don't think so, since I departed there to begin with.

I'm going to reload a previous save and see if it happens again.


+++++++++


Reloaded last save and stopped at Halifax (can only ream/refuel), New London, could not end patrol, even went to Newport (can only rearm/refuel). Date was 7/16/43.

I'm just going to start over, but in the Pacific this time. I really don't want to start another SubRon 50 tour at the moment.

this is definitely a date problem.
if you can reload the problem-mission one more time, look for a fouled anchor icon within the entire map. it is possible that your home base has moved to the Pacific...a bit earlier than you would have liked (or expected).
this is a SWAG on my part but it is definitely a possibility.
