Having had to start my career all over again I have decided this time I will stick with the VII uboat type which I have not done so far, always transfering when the IXC became avaliable. Was hoping the forum members could recommend the best flotillas to serve with through the course of the war, which send you to your favourite hunting grounds for example. Look forward to hearing from you.

It might be worth you considering using SH3 Commander, which you can download from here (http://www.users.on.net/%7Ejscones/software/products.html) It will allow you to choose your own patrol grid, amongst a whole host of other tweaks and options.

Here's some info regarding which boats are available in each flotilla and when.

I like the 1st flotilla the best for my VII careers. I love port raiding Scapa Flow and catching convoys north of Ireland heading into Liverpool. Plus Brest and Wilhelmshaven are awesome ports to start from. (well Brest and Kiel if you use GWX)

Will be looking at using this mod sometime in the future, but I am not very confident about downloading and installing them and I don't understand the rollback either, also the mod for the VIIC/41 looks very attractive too. I am worried I will mess up the whole game by not following the coreect proceedures
