I'm kinda new here and to Silent Hunter (III), so first of all I'd like to say Hi....

"Hi..."

Ok here are my questions:
1) How come that sometimes when I'm compressing time it stops compressing?;
Is that because there's some risk or danger (which I haven't been able to notice so far.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif)

2) Can anyone get me a savegame in which the war is really started.. and where I don't have to patrol all the time.. I'm kinda sick of patrolling without finding ANY ship.

3) Does shooting cargo sink a boat faster???
I think it does but i'm not sure...

1) Most things that stop compression are mentioned by the crew. IE "ship sited." Some other things such as being close to land will stop your compression.

2) You can start the game as late as 1943. You don't need to stay in your patrol zone, nor do you need to come right back. Just stop there for 24 hours and then do your own thing.

3)Shooting the waterline under the stack and just infron of the stack sinks ships the fastest.

You get some renown for patrolling it for 24 hours, but that is it. If you'd rather go off elsewhere and sink lots of ships, you'll only miss out on that renown. If you sink lots of ships, that will more than make up for it.

NuclearManta, welcome aboard!

1 - check lecek's post about this point of yours, it says it all.

2 - Try travelling throught england canal or passing between germany and england (if you can).
Yet, as leck mention, you don't have to patrol grid X and return to home immediately, instead, use your available fuel to freely travel where ever you prefer and be sure to spend all torps on enemy vessels http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

3 - No, the best thing to do is to shoot the enemy bellow the water line.

Welcome to the forums, NuclearManta http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
A couple of other guys posted pretty much the same problem recently. Maybe you'll find my response (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/857101043/m/7551093343/r/9821084343#9821084343) useful.

Good hunting!
