I'm wondering if anyone has had the patience to make a chart or list showing which boats become available when and in which flotillas?

I can do that. These are just the flotillas featured in the game:

1st Flotilla:
until 1941 IIB, IIC and IID.
after 1941 VIIB, VIIC, VIIC41, VIID and XB.

2nd Flotilla:
until 1941 IA, VIIA, VIIC, IX, IXC, IXC40 and XB.
after 1941 IX, IXB and IXC.

7th Flotilla:
VIIB, VIIC, VIIC41 and UA.

10th Flotilla:
IXC, IXC/40, XB and XIV.

11th Flotilla:
VIIC, VIIC41, XXI and XXIII.

29th Flotilla:
VIIB and VIIC.

I'm not sure when each type becomes available. All I know is that in the game the XXI is available from April 1944 when really it shouldn't be ready until at least March 17th 1945.

Beeryus, are you using historical data, or the game files for that? The reason I'm asking is that 1) I transferred from 7th to 1st in Sept 1940 to avoid the radio bug thing, and they had the entire set of type II and VII subs that the game has available, and 2) according to the data files, the 7th has sub types 1 (the VII series) and 3 (the type XXI) available to it.

Historical data.

If the 7th Flotilla has the Type XXI, it's wrong. The 7th Flotilla never had Type XXIs as far as I'm aware. Similarly, if you can get the VIIC41 before 1944 in any flotilla, that's wrong too. As for the 1st flotilla, I believe it only received its first Type VII in March 1941.

If these things are inaccurate I'll have to see if I can adjust the assignations and publish the necessary file(s) in a realism mod.

The way it reads in the flotilla.cfg file is each flotilla has a number of sub types it can get. Sub 0 is the II series, 1 is the VII series, 2 is the IX series, and 3 is the XXI. Availability of any specific model is in it's own listing, but any flotilla eventually gets all available types of those subs. The game availability of the XXI is April 1944 as you found yourself, so any and all flotillas which list Subtype3 will get the XXI on that date. I think the VIIC/42 is 1944 availability, while the VIIC/41 is late 42 or 43. I'd have to dig into the file when I get home and look.
