Hi guys...

BTW thanks for answering my question earlier about the deck gun and storm usage... Another thing I cannot find help on as it relates to another issue is why the crew who are perfectly rested and so forth wont repair when I tell them to. I have some yellow compartments and the crew will not begin repairs. I fill up the damage control slots and pick a compartment and there is no little moving wrench. And all the guys are perfectly rested... Any ideas on that one?
Thanks!

I think this has to do with one of a few things:

You may be in silent running mode, in which case all things that make loud noises are stopped. So if you try and repair, it wont do anything untill you come out of silent runnning.

Also, It maybe too damaged to repair. A few times my bridge is Red with damage, and it says unable to repair, or something like that.

Maybe one of those........

Hi !

Yep! It was silent running mode! Thanks! I could not find in the manual anywhere where silent running would cause repairs to stop but logically it makes perfect sense! Whoa! I have to get back... My XXI is being stalked by a destroyer!

thanks!

Hi Mike...

Well... my XXI bit off more than it could chew. I did manage to take out 4-5 destroyers but alas... no dice on the end game . Destroyer with one depth charge in 50m of water. DIRECT hit on the casing just aft of the sail. I wish the game would show the sub fizzing and sinking like the freighters and so forth. Kind of completes the experience you know? Just starin' at the sub sitting dead on the bottom....

Thanks!

When you are in silent running there's a window that appears with 4 {I think} actions that you cannot take. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif I love this game!!!
