I recently bought Silent Hunter III and have enjoyed reading through this forum. I have a few questions that someone can hopefully answer.
At the moment I'm nearing the start of 1941 in career mode with a realism setting of 47%. I wondered if attacking convoys will start to get more difficult as time goes on? So far I've not had any major problems with engaging a convoy, evading the escorts and re-engaging the convoy once my torpedoes have reloaded.
I was also wondering if there was any point in sending a patrol report? So far I've either received 'keep up the good work' or 'return to base' if I've used up all my torpedoes. Do you ever get any different messages/orders?
So far I've come across merchant shipping, destroyers, trawlers, etc. Do you ever come across large warships like aircraft carriers and battleships?
My last question is do you ever get different missions in career mode? So far all I've been asked to do is patrol a certain square for 24 hours.
Thanks in advance!
