View Full Version : Medals - what are they for?

What I mean is, I don't know what each medal means. So it's hard for me to distribute them to crew members because I don't really know why I would give a particular medal to one crew member.

Unfortunately I don't have the complete SH3 medal list on me at the moment, but does anyone have the list of medals and what they are awarded for so I can award the proper crew members? Thanks! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Off the top of my head:

The U-Boat badge, awarded (in RL) for completion of two patrols.

Combat badge, for combat of particular merit.

The Iron Cross 2nd Class, a proper medal for tonnage sunk.

The Iron Cross 1st Class, more of the immediate above.

The Knights Cross, for serious tonnage (and Ace status).

The Oak Leaves to the Knights Cross (more serious tonnage).

The Swords to the Knights Cross (yet more serious tonnage).

The Diamonds to the Knights Cross (Winston is having kittens at this point).

The Knights Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords & Diamonds in Gold (now you're just showing off).

All have a benefit on crew experience and performance. To see who is best suited to get them you click on the award and those best suited show a blue outline (apparently). http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This should help you out and if you haven't visitied this site before, it's got all you could ever want to know about U-Boats.

anyone notice how easy it is to gain medals? i'm playing with 97% realism and after 7 patrols i have the knights cross with oak leaves, swords & diamonds in gold.. my first officer, my watch officer and my weapons officer all have knights cross 1st and 2nd class.. is this normal? it just seemed too easy for me.. i thought such medals were more difficult to earn..

I agree. I think the medals need to be about twice as hard to get. I've altered my basic.cfg file so that it will be harder in my next career.

what do you do to make earning medals more difficult?
the game looses its excitement when the medals come too easy. i want to feel like i've earned my iron cross, instead of being surprised i got one..
