So GWX is supposed to have sabotage represented within it. So I wonder has anyone been sabotaged? In recent games, in one instance my batteries drained much too quickly, which was resolved when I updated the batteries, now the zoom function on the persicope won't work...

Yes, sabotage happens in SH3. I cannot speak from experience, I have sabotage turned off with SH3 Cmdr, but there are many threads about this.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Is it actually sabotage, or mechanical failure being represented?

I would say that it could be mechanical or rather electrical malfunction - batteries don't last forever the older they get the less charge they will hold!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

One of my Chief Bootsmen was killed by local partisans before my most recent patrol...silly partisans.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

One my my boatsmen was urrested due to being drunk, and the other (my First Officer awarded German Cross in Gold!) had a car accident... I should had ordered them to always stay at sea. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

But that's certainly not sabotaige, but "realistic crew transfers" option. Sabotaige usually causes, that I can't order ahead flank speed, so I can't crash dive also. And that hurts... Some other users also reported this malfunction. That was the only one I encountered ever.

I must have the wrong version of commander, I dont' have that option.

It's in SH3 Options/Gameplay Settings/Model Effects, Keep unchecked.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Tthe option to turn on/off the sabotage and malfunctions option is in the latest version of 2.7 and not in any other previous version, if it is there in the previous versions it's there by default.

Going from memory I may have experienced the feature while playing the game with the NYGM mod.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Isn't sabotage a feature of SH3 Commander, not GWX?

In SH3 Commander, sabotage is 'on' by default and you have to switch it off in the settings if you don't want it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Problem with ahead flank is solved by going to your command room, right click on your cheif, go to the knot meter, and select 18kts. No probs<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

You can judge the character of a man by the condition of those around him.
