Hi All,

Just recently taken to the seas and found sh3 to be a fine gripping affair. I'm on my 10th patrol which has been littered with heart stopping moment being chased about by flower corvettes and destroyers (how can the renown be so low for getting one of these pesky things) So stumbled across this huge convoy in my patrol area with only 2 torpedoes left, drat!! delighted cos managed to sink a passenger liner with one and a troop transport with the other only to find on my return to base map there is no sign of Brest my new base of ops anyone any idea where its gone? REally pleased with how mission went and don't want to have to redo now I know what's there.

Welcome to the forum, topaz101,

Not sure what you mean by "Brest has gone?" It's always been in the same place in my game. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif although I do remember a post from some time ago about "vanishing" bases. Can't remember where..

wiki entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brest,_France

Your install may have a bug. What mods are you running?

Welcome Topaz101.

Married to Mrs. Jambo and the Father of two little Jambino's, I'm constantly reminded that 'Brest is best'

Or at least, I think that's what she means http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I hope you find your way back http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

It's a known bug in the game.
I remember I had the same problem in my very first career.
The radio message told me to go to Brest, but the map didn't show the harbour. Not aware of its correct location, I googled for a hint and simply sailed there - to find it rendered and ready to welcome me.

Right where you left it?

Sorry, no help, I know. Couldn't resist. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Did you find it okay? It's just south on the western shore, and in a little river deltaish area.

I'm constantly reminded that 'Brest is best'



and as they always say, two is better than one....

My BDU said that "best" Brest was located in grid DD 36...


ok, sorry, I couldn't help myself and had to jump on a bandwagon here... but honestly, I am a nice guy.. really!

Saint Nazaire is wrong is all I know, it's too far along the coast, it should be up the estuary. The U boat pens at Saint Nazaire were right next to the Giant Normandie docks about a mile up the river.
