View Full Version : First Campaign- Uboat Question...

10-28-2008, 11:10 PM
I've been playing my first campaign and it's June 17, 1940. I was wondering when the U-boat IX would become available. I have about 4600renown, but I can't seem to see one (supposed to be out in 1939). Is it triggered by when I get close to 6500 renown? I really don't get it.

Which flotilla are you in? If you are in the 1st, you won't get IX boats, at least not early in the war. Transfer to 2nd, and you should find one therehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Better yet, if you install GWX-2, you can start in the 2nd and have it available immediately

Thanks for the link. A lot of cool information

Yeah, I'm in the 1st. I only see the 7th though. When can I transfer to the 2nd? I don't think I can install GWX2 because I have the steam version of SH3.

-Thanks again

In that case, wait. Let me guess, you're still sailing out of Wilhelmshaven?

Wait till the Wehrmacht captures the French Atlantic ports. Around the summer of 1940 you will be transferred to Brest. From there, you should be able to transfer to the 2nd in L'Orient. And get the IXb there. Have fun http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Thanks a lot.
Can't wait.

If you can't wait, do the following... Install SH3 Commander. In there, go to options and set the "days in base" to a larger number. That way, you can finish a patrol say in winter, and start a new one in summer. Don't forget to revert the Days back to a historical 28 (or something else, if you want)

Well, I made it to Brest, but I must have some corrupt files or something. When I try to transfer to the 2nd it says "approved," but then I'm in the 7th. When I try transferring to the 7th, I get a "null" status...

I might have to reinstall.
