I take it you are enjoying Mikey's gift http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

For starters, before you begin a Career, you can do the Academy and you will begin your Career with extra Renown. Also, if you look at the Rec Manual, you will see the amount of renown each individual ship is approximately worth.

We are here for anything you need, don't hesitate to ask my friend http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Hi genrich - sorry for the delay in responding to your thread.

Do you mean how do you earn more renown on each patrol? If so, here's what you need to know:

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">
Renown Basics

Renown is the measure of the success of your patrols in Career mode.

You earn renown by:

<LI> Reaching your patrol zone
<LI> Patrolling for 24 hours
<LI> Sinking enemy ships
<LI> Shooting down enemy planes
<LI> Returning to your base at patrol end, instead of using the ESCAPE key to "return to port" in mid-patrol. When you're within 30 kilometers of your base and hit the ESCAPE key, you will then be offered the option to "Dock at: base". You do not have to travel the last mile and dock in the U-boat pen.

You lose renown by:

<LI> Sinking friendly ships. Sinking a friendly ship will penalize your renown by a factor of ten times such a ship's renown value. Keep it up and SH3 will toss you out of the Kriegsmarine.
<LI> Sinking neutral ships. Neutral ships will cost you the same renown amount that you would earn for sinking the equivalent enemy ship. Armed neutral ships will also begin firing on you. As with sinking friendly ships, sinking neutrals can lead to the end of your career in the Kriegsmarine.


You do not lose renown for skipping your patrol grid square. It is just a place to earn points if you visit it. It is not required of you to go there or stay there.

You will not see the renown you've earned in your current patrol until you've returned to base.

Renown can be used to upgrade to a new type of U-boat, purchase upgraded conning towers, radios, or guns, or to enlist more experienced sailors and officers.

The above information is taken from the Community Manual website for SH3:

Renown page in the Community Manual (http://www.mysh3.info/shiii/index.php?title=Renown)

Also bear in mind each different kind of enemy ship has its own renown score if you sink it. The individual scores are listed in the link above, but basically big ships (e.g. tankers, battleships, aircraft carriers, cruisers, large cargoes, liners, etc.) give you more renown than small ships (e.g. tug boats, destroyers, corvettes, small cargo, etc.).

One other thing to remember is that the amount of renown you get for sinking an enemy ship is affected by whatever difficulty settings you are using in the game. The higher the difficulty, the more renown you get - but the tougher it is to get it! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hi, I'm new to SHIII and have plenty of questions: First is: When in base, how can I actually upgrade my boat and/or weapons. I have enough honor points but can't seem to actually do it. Any help would be appreciated. Tx, CoM

About the renown: Do I get less renown if I have unused torpedoes left when arriving the home base?

Hi I used that link VikingGrandad mentioned too, but it is down...
Is there a new link or is the site down for good?
It was a really good one, too sad he/she/they didn't post it on wiki or something like that :/
