There has to be a new DC made because SHIII uses new models,sounds,textures, and simulator engine. The old DC is only good for SHII. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Shouldnt be much time to do I'm guessing. For how ever long it took the artists and programmers to make up the physics for each ship because of mass, different guns and torpedos. The whole interrior needs to be done and crew. Radar and sonar needs to be redone and more accurate this time. (in shII last time the sonar ping would work sometimes in manual and sometimes it wouldnt.) All new crew voices need to be made. Overall it shouldnt more than 6 months to a year to complete such programming but there is always the beta testing for both single player and multiplayer. I wish I had my hands on these projects. I would work at home even to get these features added. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Im looking forward to modding.

Silent Hunter II and Destroyer Command both used forks of the same game engine so interoperability was highly easy. Silent Hunter III has a completely new engine, trying to make DC interoperable with SHIII would be no easier than trying to make say, IL-2 forgotten battles, work with SHIII (impossible).

There will be no DC2.

"In a German forum a UBI official stated: ......A continuation of Destroyer Command will not come in a foreseeable time. I.e. in the multiplayer mode of Silent Hunter 3 you can only steer together the submarines in a wolfpack to attack hostile convoys. Silent Hunter III is developed by a new team that has nothing to do with the Silent Hunter II team. You can look forward to a technically perfect game.....
At E3 the SHIII team told Neal that if SHIII is a success they want to make a new Destroyer Command II."
