I have playing sh3 for about 2 weeks solid and am impressed with the game.I have been averageing about 500 renowns per patrol and have been buying extra bits for my u-boat.I am currently in 1944 and have just had the chance to buy the top boat the xx1 i think,but at 30000 renowns im looking at a possible purchase around the mid 1960s.thought i would look for a cheat to get renowns but dont appear to have a careers folder in "cfg".think im doomed for the top boat but never mind will crack on anyway.

Don't feel as if you are missing out on something big in not having access to the XXI. From many posts I have read, it's really not worth the bother. Enjoy the war in your conventional U-boat.

Probably part of the reason it's so expensive... They don't want you to get it. Just a theory, but as you've seen, you have to do very, very well for yourself throughout the war to even be able to think about getting one.

Despite the fact that I personally like the thing, I'd have to agree with K61; it's just not worth it. I'd rather be happy with the 2000-5000 tonnes I worked for than have uber kill numbers patrols every time out, so I can stack up the renown for a Type XXI. That, and trying to get away late war even with a Type VII is difficult enough. A XXI makes it almost too easy. Almost. I have gotten cornered by a Destroyer Escort a few times in a XXI.

Check out the community manual link in my sig. Beofre it disappears. I believe there was a section in cheats of hot to get renown. But i'd not get the XXI. I leaned not to like it, check out my replies to the XXI post http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
