Default BF10?

First patrol of a new career, and I get assigned BF10...... but I cant seem to find it...... It's prewar and I'm sailing out of Wilhelmshaven in a 7b.


Also, Just north of the barrier islands of the Netherlands, pretty much north of Amsterdam, I spotted a tug boat, sitting idle, right beside another ship with two light house type masts blaring away. I'm assuming this is a rally point for shipping to meet up with the tugs for escort into the interior ports?

I was typeing out the answers but hit a wrong key and lost it all.
Then I got side tracked.
But Glad to see you have sorted it.


Everyone gets a 'RTFM' at least once.
You may be one of the first to give it to Yourself!

If it was easy to play it would get old fast Gargamel.

Give it time and alot of things will become second nature.

Then the fun begins.

Maybe, but I doubt it was in public

Going to bump this as I never got an answer to this question, more curious than anything. I did a google search but nothing came up that really answered it.

It's a lightship to indicate dangerous waters. It's part of the "environment" so it cannot be sunk.

The tugboat is there so your lookouts will spot it and call it out. If the tugboat wasn't there, the lookouts would not "see" it since the lightship is classed as an environmental object.

And in the very early testing days one or two of the team collided with the bugga IIRC
