View Full Version : SH3 Commander and Ranks

04-13-2006, 01:41 PM
I just installed SH3 Commander. I am in the middle of my 12th patrol. I noticed that my commander's rank and first officer's rank was lowered from Lieutenant SR to Lieutenant J.G..

Does anyone know why the ranks of officers would be lowered by SH3 Commander? Can my officer's rank be restored to the higher ranking they had prior to SH3 Commander?

Thanks and GOOD HUNTING ! ! !

The way I understand it is this: your rank is dictated purely by the unspent renown you have, so (ridiculously) your rank can drop if you spend your renown on a new boat or upgrades (if your remaining renown dips below the threshold for your current rank, then you go down a rank!)


From the Community Manual (http://www.communitymanuals.com/shiii/index.php?title=Promotions):
To be promoted, you must accumulate sufficient renown. For your first promotion, you'll need to accumulate 5,000 renown. Your next promotion comes at 15,000 renown and the third promotion comes at 25,000 renown. The renown needed for a promotion is not the cumulative renown you've gathered through your career, but rather your current amount of renown.

because SH3 Comander was just instaled your "old" carear is taken as a new one in SH3 Comander. A patrol or 2 should clear it up. I had the same problem.

Thank you. That clears it up. I'm sure after I return to Brest, or maybe by the end of the next patrol, it will correct itself.

I do have to say, I like the fact the you can adjust the wave heights. I was never satisfied with the wave heights in the stock version. Not that it's always rough, but every now and then it's good to get slammed by a killer storm with huge waves like in Das Boot.

Again, thank you and GOOD HUNTING ! ! !
