I don't understand why my ships in San Francisco don't upgrade!

It is 4/7/42, the submarine Grampus with 29 sys damage is on upgrade 4/42 and on "yes". I switched now to "player defined upgrades" to "no" in the preferences in the hope it will upgrade now.

My other 5 carriers are on route to SF. If the next 2 turns an upgrade won't happen with the submarine, I assume it won't happen with my other ships either and just not bother upgrading.
Any similar experiences out there?

Cheers.

So far you only mentioned ONE ship () and the reason why it does not upgrade is rather clear. To upgrade ship must be in good condition. Sys damage of 29 is definitely too high. You need to wait till it get somewhat repaired. Can't tell you what is the max sys damage value at which upgrade is still possible - have no time to look for exact formula (which may depend on either ship class or durability). From memory I remember DDs which were upgraded instantly with sys damage of 10 or slightly more.

"player defined upgrades" setting has no relation to your problem. In short it determines degree of freedom you (and your opponent in case of PBEM) have when upgrading your airgroups from one aircraft model to another.

I don't recall the exact number ... but it might be sys dmg <=5 required for upgrade ... or maybe it is <= 10 ... but agree with other poster that 29 is too high ... the yard has to clean up the damage mess before they start working on the upgade.

Thanks. Now my ships update, after they cleared the damage.

Should be in the manual as I thought they did it in any harbour, not just one with repair. You guys helped clear it up. Cheers for that.
