View Full Version : Some ####### around

05-24-2005, 04:11 PM

well, tried once more to sneak into a harbor, and see what could be found there. And again, zip, nada, nothing. I hear there is a mod available that "fills harbors with ships", at least merchants right? If someone could point me to that mod, I be happy to download it.

Than, the cause of me ####### around in a harbor was because BdU assigned me to grid GR-someting, which is near Capetown, freaking South Africa. Did the math.... my NO said that on ahead slow (8 knots most of the time) I could do 24000 in my type IXC. Capetown is 13 to 14000. I wouldn't have made it back, short by 4000. So, instead of boring myself out of my scull by doing even less speed than 8 knots, I decide to look in a harbor again, this time the lovely Portland.

Well, here goes..... some pics.

Me taking a lovely postcard shot of a lighthouse

Me running into subnets

Me surfacing in Portland harbor



Me shelling a light house, no damage though

Oh yes. And on the way to Portland, I found a ghost ship. No visual sighting by myself or WO. Sign on nav map was grey ... Anyone seen this before?

intresting ghost ship there, its marked as very fast, must have been a PT boat or something, not much else in the game is capable of "very fast" apart from aircraft, maybe it was a classified allied prototype stealth boat, or a whale with a torpeedo stuck up its backside. or or......http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Yes I have seen the grey ships on the map before. I get them when radar picks them up.

Yeah, but they are identified if you move closer.

Great surprise, if it's a passenger liner, but a whole bucket load of bad luck if it's a destroyer keen of blowing you to smithereens http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.
