My questions pertain as to how will I know when I have fulfilled
the required kills? I the old version I was informed as to how many and types of merchants kills I should sinks. Those parameters
are no longer listed in the OH2v. Can I attack any merchant I wish and will I eventually get a message that I have completed Triumph of the Wolf-pack ?
I see the same grayed out shapes on the upper left which in the old version would get highlighted after so many kills, is this the same in this newer version.
One last think, on my main page I still have my old OH version still reading as 1.2.0 is this something that the new OH 2 did not change. Thanks.
Hi Harbinger1

You can view your progres with v2 now with the same use of the progres bar (a white line will grow as you sink ships). See this thread for more info http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=198799

As for targets - any ship sunk will count

As you are playing the objective TotWP - see this note from post 1 on the main OHII thread:-

Quote:
.
Campaign Objective - Triumph of the Wolfpack (TotWP)
With version 1.7 and higher, I have added a new type of campaign objective. Now when you play Triumph of the Wolfpack, you will get to take part in actual wolfpacks. This is done using the secondary missions that you get when you request mission in the briefing map as normal. Now for most objectives, this does not matter if you pick these missions or not. With TotWP, they are required.
So to play this campaign objective, click the request button and you will get an orange marker on your map. You then go on patrol as normal - but his time you must sail to these markers. If you meet a convoy while you are heading there and decide to attack it, you should think about re-arming before going to these marker.
If you do dicide to re-arm - goto a near by base and select "refit". If you went back to the bunker do not select end patrol. If you do then you will need to go back to the briefing map and select a new mission. I have only made three of these missions so far and each time you return to port, it uses one up even if you did not go there.

So - when you arrive at the markers a message will be sent to you. These messages can be sent to you by the stock game and so can be read in the captian log button. You can also get them sent by TDWs radio mod. These can be read the normal way and will have a red background (sometimes you may not get one, but will get the other - looking into why this happens). Both these message types will drop your TC to preset number and play a sound. Pay close attention to these messages as you will be told to go to map areas etc. The next stage, when this happens is triggered by you doing the task as in the message. So if you do not check the messages you get - you will not be able to continue the wolfpack attack and be recorded in history as the u-boat that did not show. At some point a message will be sent ordering you and the other boat in the wolfpack to attack. This is always the last order you will be given and you should act on your own data from then on.

Sink em all
Where you see v1.2, this means the SH5 version, not OHII. So you will only know what version of OHII you are using by checking you mod list.
I could if the next release add a version number to the OHII banner in main menu to make this clearer.

I am also going to paste this message to the OHII thread as it may help others

Cheers
Trevally

I have looked into OpDrumbeat and can find no errors.
Can you post a screenshot of your campaign box in the map view so I can see more information.

Thanks

Default Resupply

Hello Trev

I was reading in this thread where TDW had fixed (or made working) resupply. What are the parameters that will dictate when you can, or can't, resupply. Every time I request resupply via the radio man I get request denied.

Running Sobers mod fyi.

Thanks!

For resupplies - only some campaigns have that option.
Anyone where distance is an issue, so:-

U-boat refitting at sea
Part I: German tankers interned in Spanish ports

continues in this post



Even though neutrality regulations prohibited merchant ships interned in neutral ports to refit war ships or u-boats, with connivance of the Spanish authorities some ships secretly refuelled and provided U-boat with provisions. These refittings usually took place at night, when the risk of being caught was smaller, and they were abondoned by late 41- early 42, when the commissioning of the new type XIV Milchkuh U-boats rendered the use of surface vessels for U-boat refitting needless.

The list of the interned German tankers and U-boat that refuelled from them follows below. By comparing patrol dates and areas (marked in color) of the refitted subs, it won't be difficult to track down the OHII campaign/mission best fitting those patrols.

Here is the list:


Ship name: MV Max Albrecht

  • U-30 (type VIIa), 6th patrol: outbound Wilhelmshaven, 08/06/1940, inbound Lorient, 07/07/1940; patrol duties carried out: patrolling South Western Approaches; refitted from MV Max Albrecht on 18/06/1940;

Question . If i add the mod Expanded Navies by Cybermat47 v.0.0.06 after OH2 . Is there a finite number of spawned ships at any one time . So basically if more contries ships are added does this reduce the amount of ships spawning from a certain country . Hard for me to explain . More rosters but same amount of ships so less of each country . Do you get what i trying to say . Less polish ships etc .

Thanks Gap - I will have a read through that

EDIT:
Ok great work Gap
I have taken all this info and will go through the campaigns and add any missing tankers.
Looks like SW approaches should get a tanker for 41 - I think most other are in the war already, but will check.

This mod will sit quite nice with OHII
If we look at the Australian roster - when in campaign MG the Australian navy will spawn ships as per the cmapaign files. I did use the command "generic" as often as I could.

So if your Australian roster now has more DDs than the standard OHII Australian roster - they will be pulled into the game. The numbers will be the same, you will just see more types. So no - this will not lessen other ships from other countries.

However where new classes have been added "CV" etc - these are not within the OHII campaign files and so will not be pulled in.
I use generic for DD and Escorts.

Where these new ship classes were used - I could add them the next time I work on the mod. This would require me to add Cybermat's mod

My pleasure Trev

Can you please give me a summary of OHII's player base changes, with their respective dates?

P.S. How can I check campaign mission's patrol areas in ME?

This is not easy
If all the playerbase.mis are common to all campaigns you can look at them in ME and there will be icons stacked on each other. Each one will give a date range and how owns it

You look at objective.mis and ??_map_locations.mis - ensure you have the "Map locations edit mode" on (zoom/unzoom) to activate it.
Then look at the edit campaign in the campain tab
