Hi All,
Long time lurker on these threads, posting for the first time. Can anyone tell me if there are renown points for intercepting an enemy ship as the result of a flash message or radio contact report. Playing TMO1.9 w/RSRD (and loving it....)

Welcome cmdrmoosicvs.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif As far as I know, you only get renown for completing objectives and "sinking" enemy ships. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The reason I 1ask,Werner, is that I have a renown sheet for sh4 that I obtained somewhere on the forum that I use to calculate renown for shipa sunk and objectives completed. When I intercept a radio contact or convoy threough flash message, my renown at the end of my patrol is way more (sometimes up to 4000) than what I have calculated through my own record keeping.

Well then, if that's the case, I'm due for a windfall when I return to base. I just intercepted the Midway Task Force, twice. Once on it's way to Midway and once on it's return to base. I sunk a Fleet Carrier coming and a Kongo BB going and, I haven't even reached my first objective yet. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Werner, Nice shooting, that is awesome. I hope my theory holds true, although, I seem to have more questions with this game than any answers. It's nice to know that I'm not alone. By the way, I don't think the Emperor will be very happy with you.

Yooperbacker,
Where might I go to get that list?
I check that link at the top of the page but it doesn't work.
Thanks.

Yooper, I noticed that the Flying Dutchman is on that list, and worth 1000 points too. Does that imply that there is actually a way to sink her? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

You can download this chart in a PDF by clicking here. (http://www.filefront.com/16738721/SH4_Renown.pdf/)

This Renown Chart was made by raduz in 2007.

I ran into the dutchman in the stock game and haven't seen it since but I would like to know myself how to react if and when I see it again.
Also,if anyone keeps a record of ships sunk and their renown as I do, I would greatly appreciate feedback on results 'cause this point on renown is driving me crazy! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

If you want to know what renown is assigned to each item in SH4 you can go to the main folder where SH4 is installed then go to the folder Data, then go to the folder called Sea. In the sea folder you will list of ships. Click on a ship folder name, then go to the CFG file. Click on this file. If it asks what program to open it with select Note Pad. Once this file is open you will see what renown was assigned to this ship.

Thanks Yooper, would I be able to look in the files for renown pts on successful intercepts also?

To clatify, is there "bonus" renown in addition to renown for ship or ships sunk?

Not sure about bonus points. Just look in the files and you might find out.

My thanks to Yooper and Mr VonTrapp for the input. BTW I do have an officer with "command presence" if that was what you meant Werhne, or were you giving me the needle? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

No, no needles, I assure you. I wasn't talking about "Command Presence". I was talking about a "Theoretician". They seem to be moral boosters, as far as their ability goes but, they also are claimed to boost renown for the Skipper. I have not seen the "Command Presence" ability yet. If you mouse over the crewman, it should give you a brief synopsis of his capabilities.

Werhner, I honestly have never come across the ability "theoratician" yet. I am playing TMO w/rsrd at 85% reality. I've been playing it for quite some time now. Don't have the guts for manual targeting yet, but I just might have to force myself. Even though you were'nt needling, you did put a smile on my face. Thanks a bunch.

Well gang, here are the results of my latest patrol.
13 merchants
8 warships
1 refit
184,240 tons
3 objectives completed
1 radio contact intercepted (Buzyun) sunk
1 flash message intercepted (2 merchants escorted by a minesweeper) wiped out all
9,407 renown awarded
My self-recorded renown for ships sunk was 6,418.
Now I'm not sure what renown was awarded for completing my objectives,but, I'm fairly sure it wasn't 2,989. This leads me to believe that intercepting flash message convoys and radio contact reports on ships are well worth the effort if possible.
I hope this info will be of value to my fellow captains.
