Default helgoland minefield?(gwx)

i hate mines i really do

patrol was going well i south east of scapa flow and went to periscope depth to avoid a destroyer only to suffer a massive explosion when a mine snagged my conning tower near the deck gun

critical flooding but thankfully my hull held as i sank to 104 meters before bottoming so i repair pump out the water ive lost both periscopes, hydrophones, deck gun and radio antenae

so i thank the u boat gods im still alive and head home for wilhelmshaven

then comes the final blow i just southeast of helgoland im jolted out of time compression to the tune of critcal flooding again

this time there was no saving her i order abandon ship and we go for a dip in the northsea and await rescue from a nearby vorpostenboot

now heres the thing i traversed this area many times savely and as far as i know theres no minefield here but i cant be sure

anyone know about minefields around helgoland? i hate mines

Yep. Check the campaign files if you still want to use that route, but I'm pretty sure the East side is clear.

Go to your silent hunter 3 folder and open the mission editor.

From file, select open SCR layer, and open this file.

I am playing GWX also I tend to avoid all shores because not familiar wit where mines are located. I went into the campaign file you mention but am not sure what to look for. I found an entry like this:

[OrdnanceUnit 4]
Name=Minefield#1
Class=Minefield
Type=500
Origin=France
Side=0
GameEntryDate=19380101
GameEntryTime=0
GameExitDate=19400614
GameExitTime=400
Long=7249.000000
Lat=5941232.000000
Height=0.000000
Heading=0.000000
RandStartRadius=0.000000
Density=5.000000
HeightIntervalMin=-12.000000
HeightIntervalMax=-7.000000
NextWP=0

I take it that this is a minefield. How can I decipher this to understand what location this is and at what time are the mines laid?

There is a British minefield to both east and west of Helgoland.....pay particular attention to the dates because they are not permanent fixtures.

Are you using GWX? If so, the fields are already there and already active. If not, no minefields.

I'm glad you posted this. I always take the western side. Must be sheer dumb luck that I haven't gone 'boom'.

Check the campaign file also because they are dated.
