Why is the XXI boat not included in the career game? The manual does not list it in any of the 6 Flotilla, but does list this model in the back of the manual?

I haven't used an XXI yet. You're likely not seeing it in any of the flotillas because you're still early in the war and it's not available until the war is almost over. The first XXI commisioned, U-2501, wasn't sent into active duty until 27-Jun-44.

Because the manual only lists the boats you start with in a flotilla and date. As you can only start a career untill '43 while the XXI comes out at '44 it will obviously not listed in there. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

You can have it for 30000 renown at april '44 in the career.

Only the 7th and 11th Flotillas have access to it in the game. And if you're using Beery & Co's Real U-boot (tm) mod, only the 11th will be able to get it.

Well I'm only getting 1500 renown per patrol in 1941 that's the big deal, at that rate I'm never gonna be able to afford something like a XXI

What year did you start and how the hell do you have so much renown??? I sank about 14 ships mostly tankers and cargos plus I downed loads of planes in my last patrol. Yet when I got home I earned only 1300 renown!

Are people cheating or something or is Admiral Donitz ripping me off?

I started in 39 on a VIIB U-52, and I have so much renown because I don't waste it on useless things ie. Engine Upgrades, Battery Upgrades, fancy hydrophones etc. I've only spent about 4K renown. Early in 41 I got a big chunk of it because for 6 straight patrol I ran into large convoys off of Ireland and sank 90% of each (in two cases I wiped out the entire convoy). Also on one patrol in early 1940 I ran into a Battlegroup in the open ocean in which I sank two Battleships. When I got back to base after that patrol I had a nice 4K renown waiting for me and 8 knights crosses for my crew.

Try to rise the realism setting or sink more ships.
I started from the earliest/beginning. 1st Flotilla going from type II to VIIB when it was possible. Realism 72%. But less realism>less renown. And I have sunk some ships too, of course.
Maybe start a thread with patrol/career summary?

Don't forget that at 0% realism you'll only receive a fourth of the renown that you would get at 100%.

Someone said the formula is 75% of your realism percentage plus a base 25%. I don't know if that's true, but that sure seems like it matches the data I've observed. The higher your realism settings, the more of the renown you accumulate during a patrol will be awarded.

30k is not a lot of renown for a U-Boat that never saw combat.
