Ahoy, Berserker...

Can't stress this enough... the devil's in the details.

Where is the SH4 installed...

Is SH4 stock, if stock is it modded with add in mods or modded with a mega.. if a mega, what mega...

did you add the mods in, using jsgme or no jsgme...

Did you use multiSH4, if you have more than 1 instance of SH4 installed...

Did you patch it with 4GB patch or Large Address Aware...

Details, assist in looking to figure out what can be causing issues... the more there, the better.

It's an old bug that keeps popping up that has existed since the vanilla SH4. Nobody has been able to figure it out as far as I know.

If you raid harbors, a ship is not always able to get "under water" in a timely manner, and sometimes not at all. A ship might show as sunk, but the "sinking" has not completed. It might show in your log, but as soon as you leave the spawn area, then the ship is no longer "sinking", and is capable of re-spawning if you come back... Just another oddity of the game.

What propbeanie states, is true.. also sometimes, but not terribly often... a ship will appear to sink but yet a small portion bobs just barely visible, just enough to keep it from completing the sinking process too, I have found.. as was the case with an IJN sub I sank... by all aspects accordingly to the crew, saying it had... & the icon on the nav map, as well.. & reported in the ships sunk portion of the messages log clipboard... though on return to port... no credit for it at all, in the base records... think propbeanie may & can recall My mentioning that a bit back.. if ol'man-itis hasn't clouded that from his recollecting.. that is... *chuckles* if so, no worries propbeanie...

Was a bit back & I know you've been burning a lot of midnight oil, what with getting v1.46 ready with FotRS... which was & is, very much appreciated...

as I recall, you mentioned if needed, surface & pump a couple of deck gun shells into its carcass the next time something similar happened.. but just to be aware that a not afraid of death overzealous AI IJN crew member, may still man a gun & pop off rounds back at Me... even if they were under water... just wondering, when did they develop a Thomson lung.. or its equiv... however that was spelled... so as to continue to man a gun underwater.. much less still fire it...

Any way, long & short of it.. is 1 of those things that can occur.. a ship shown as sunk can still not be 100% sunk until you confirm it... before you leave the area completely...

May take a bit longer, but.. is prudent.

Hope this helps... & what I said, still does hold true.. helps to give as much info as can be.. in any case.. just in case.
