View Full Version : Really need help - coordinates

02-20-2008, 08:46 PM
I really need some help. I am running SH3 with GWX and SHCommander.

I got a contact report with a position in Longitude and Latitude. Unfortunatly there are no Long/Lat coordinates on the navigation map so I have no idea where the contact is located.

Am I missing something? Is there a tool I am missing?

You're thinking of one of those "ambiance" messages that are added to the game. Real contacts are assigned a grid reference and the convoy sighting appears on the map. Other messages are randomly sent to you, such as from merchant ships sinking, U-boats reporting sinking, etc. These do not correspond to real events in the game, but are "chatter." They are added by modders to give some atmosphere to the game.

Thanks for the info.
