View Full Version : Torpedo reloading? Tried everything!

10-16-2006, 08:50 PM
I'm on my 3rd patrol in a IID and my torpedos won't reload. I've tried doing the silent running thing and have made sure auto loading is checked. I've got 2 torpedo qualified guys in the tube room and the meter is about 2/3rds full. I can't figure out why they won't reload! I've sat with TC on for an hour thinking it was just taking a long time, but that wasn't it.

Any suggestions? Bug?

Only two guys? or is it fully crewed? Fill every space. BTW, it will take at least 15min real time to load 1 torpedo<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

You can judge the character of a man by the condition of those around him.

Fully crewed with 2 qualified guys. Ok, so even with TC on you're saying it will take a real 15 minutes?

Are you missing a weapon officer? Make sure that the green bar above the torpedo room is over 50%.

Check the crew fatigue (endurance)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Yeah I've got a weapon officer and the green bar is about 70%. No fatigue on anyone either. So weird.

Very strange!
Have you tried to save and reload the game, just in case it would unlock the situation?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I'll try that. Hopefully it works.

maybe i'm thick in the head here, but whats the silent running thing?
torps wont load if you are in silent running. If thats not what you meant then please disregard

Does crew placement have an impact? I know you need a torpedo qualified guy in the room and fully staffing it helps too, but I'm wondering if there's something else that needs to happen?

I'm about to just start a new career and not mess with buying a new crew. That's the only reason I can think of now why my torpedos won't reload.

Once someone had a problem with an open tube...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">


There is no safe distance

So to put all the answers in conclusion, DON'T be running silent, HAVE fully stocked crew in compartment, DON'T be submerged, make sure tubes are CLOSED, maybe qualify your WE in Torpedos and place him in the compartment.

Foehammer had written a thread about the perfect crew compliment, but I can't remember the order. Haven't seen much of him lately, he's too busy at Military School, or he could shed some light on this subject.

In the Weapons Management screen, place your cursor over the selected torpedo, and it will display how much time is left in the reloading procedure. You can TC to make time go by faster, just be careful about using TC in the middle of engagement.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
