View Full Version : weird, very weird

Last night after playing for a little while I saved midpatrol. I was just southeast of England in BF-16. Anyway, I loaded my save just now and as soon as I got back I found that my sub was in a crash dive, and by crash dive I mean real crash dive. I dropped close to 150 metres in less than 10 seconds. The knot-meter displayed a speed of around 50 knots. I was almost vertical.
So what the heck happened?

I loaded the save 4 times and everytime the same result. I looked at the free view and I couldn't see a thing. I checked the crew control and it said no damage. So really, what's up?

I sorta remember reading about this previously but I couldn't find anything using the find function.

Any ideas?

Is it that when I saved there was another ship close by and that when I returned the computer/software decided to put that ship right on top of my boat?

Did you save submerged, that is an SH3 no no ?

Also saving near ships is not good either, it causes the ships to loose their waypoints and go all over the place, or even sink.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I can't remember, but it is a possibility.

Well good thing to know for the future, I suppose

I am not complaing or anything but I saved the game while at periscope depth in Scapa, staring at a battleship(Nelson I think)and then I exited, reloded, and my sub shot through the battleship at 600 knts http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif I was undamaged, the Nelson did not do so well http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif
