Gday guys,

I normally dont like repeating the same stuff over and over again in forums, but just bear with me please..

So I decided i'd finally jump on the bandwagon and try TGW. I thought that with its .exe install, it might be a bit easier for me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif As it turns out, it was. And oh my lord was i impressed. The screenies and descriptions simply dont do it justice! i mean, WOW! its absolutely unreal.

I just did a patrol out to AL69 from St Nazaire in 43, and had only one contact the entire time.. a river class about 5km behind me in medium fog. Does anyone have any tips for increasing the amount of shipping i might come into contact with? I spent a good deal of time submerged, listening both through the sonarman and myself to try and find contactgs, and all to no avail...

cheers guys, and a huge thankyou to everyone who was in GW. Cases of Crownies for all i say!

Hi there, look in your game folder. There is a folder named documentation, there is a jpeg there of all the shipping lanes during ww2. Out of Liverpool north and south of Irland its a lot of traffic. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Try to sail near British ports if you can, you're bound to pick up some merchants on their way to and from port.

A word of warning, going near british ports in GW is close to suicidal. Only surface long enough to recharge batteries, don't time compress above 64x (or you won't be fast enough to save yourself) and be ready to dive in an instant. The 'Sleek Grey Messengers of Death' Destroyers hide in the fog - look out

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif Oh, yeah... There are plenty of hot spots. Just explore those shipping lanes. The trick is to get close enough to a busy port to catch some shipping, but remain far enough out to
avoid the unwanted attention of those DDs.

You will be rewarded... and often it will be as much as you can handle.
