beginner; sh3; ships, red and blue, dissappear from the navigation map when i get close to them; is this supposed to happen ? i can't see the ship through the periscope; is the ship still too far away ? thanks.

Welcome to the forum, wsony12.

Sounds like you're running stock SH3 as in the GWX expansion all the map contacts are grey.

When a navigation map "contact" appears, it is a snapshot of that ship in that position at that time. The contact will fade over a period of several hours as the ship has moved on, and the map won't always update its new positions.

When you first click on the contact it will display an approximate speed (slow, medium, fast) and a heading (SSW, NE etc..). You will need to plot an intercept course using the map tools.

Heading directly towards where the contact "was" won't help you much when you get there hours later...

Check out the community manual on Intercepting Targets. Good hunting!
