Players presence within 60km of traffic generator nodes (mostly located in harbors) will prevent game engine to spawn any convoys or units which can lead to potential campaign corruption, so you should stay well off any major allied ports.
Sticky destroyers are known game bug, save and reload the game will fix the issue. This bug appears sometimes, a destroyed starts to follow you around in south east direction at constant distance. You can do tricks like getting a near land so the destroyer runs aground and then you can torpedo him.
When docking/ending a patrol the orange anchor icon doesn't appear, then save and reload the game. The "anchor" should appear.
Use rotating save game file names like MySave1 through 4, always saving to the oldest file name in rotation. This way if you run into anything bad, being it a bug or bad tactical situation whatever, you can easily revert into more suitable save game status. Use also specific save game for all harbor dockings (remember you should not apply campaign mods file being on patrol, only at harbor).
No matter what nationality you are, australian, british, polish, american, japanese... no matter, you should always always select German Language from install options, as that is the only real way to play Silent Hunter U-Boot simulations! JAWOHL HERR KALEUN!
