Disappearing boats
#1
Just loaded one of my savegames, and noticed that some of my convoys have disappeared off the map. They can be found in the drop down list of all the convoys, they aren't on a journey to the mediterranean. They won't move or go into automatic trading mode when I tell them either.

Any ideas?

I would upload the save game if I could find out how.

Did you update your game and load an older savegame by any chance?

Hi haeal, if you haven't already. Try playing for a little while. Sometimes I lose ships when the screen needs to refresh or they get hidden by a cloud, other ship or something like that. ~Bogi

Not unless Steam did a stealth update. Will check when I get home.

Just checked, and it's been at 1.3 for a while. Well before I lost my boats.

There's a couple of boats that have done it. I think it may have had something to do with winter and having the harbor ice over.

Ah you play on "profi" Level.

Yes it is a known BUG, that sometime a convoy that has only 2 Towns to sail to, disappears into the Nirvana when the route is canceled because of a freezed harbor. To my knowledge the BUG is known, but not jet found. Meaning the reason why that happens is not jet identified. The problem is that this BUG is difficult to repeat.

For me that is another reason to use no 2 town routes. I do my distribution to my counting houses with routes that have at least 3 towns. So the routes are not canceled because of one harbourg freezing over. The moment all towns are implemented in my supplysystem all routes have 5 to 6 towns, so the routes will never be canceled.

And that way no convoy gets lost in the area between the town map and the sea map. My personal oppinion is, that this BUG allways happens, when a convoy is right on the border betweenn sea and town map, when the port freezes over. Than the convoy is struck between both maps and not accessable anymore. If the convoy has a 3'rd to 6'th destination the route will not be canceled and the convoy wil sail on to the next destination without getting stuck between the maps.

Is there any way to get rid of the ships? I don't mind the loss of the ships, but having them constantly there is annoying.

Thanks for the information too. They were indeed convoys with 2 stops in their automated route.
