I wish a manual log book or, at least, an automatic one where you can edit personal notes.

Besides a captians log (curious where it will be since there is no captains cabin ;-) ) we also need a proper ships log that will list weather/position/engine use/events/etcetera for every watch, this could easily be automated.

I hope the captains log will be automated but does give us the option of deleting entries and making our owb entries. I also hope we will not get a typewriter font but a nice 'handwriting' font.
The listing of every order (as in SHII) does not belong into the captains log. It would be better to have a 'campaign log' for that.

That means we need THREE logs ! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Because the dev-team told us we will only have a 3d control room, bridge, radio room, and sonar shack I concluded one can not enter the captains cabin and open the captains log.

I only noticed the cabin after I just re-played the in-game footage http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

But I still think that we can not enter it, maybe the book is on the table/shelve and we can just click on it without entering the cabin ?!?

bump this up so the dev team sees it i think a cpt. log is a very important part of the game

I believe they said the control room, bridge, radio room and sonar room are the only places you can actually "walk" around in. There could be more rooms where you can only look around you.

I could be terribly wrong though, that's just how I interpreted what they said in the live chat.

I truly hope there will be an option of completely manual captains log. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
...I think there is captains cabin, opposite the sonar room. You can see it in the ingame footage... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

In the captains log there will be a page with the ships sunk, like aces of the dept log?
