View Full Version : Adding Ships to SH3

07-05-2006, 11:39 AM
I have noticed on the forum that some of you have been adding non stock merchant and naval ships to SH3 even though you are using many of the super mods.

Where can you get the extra ships from and how do you install them to get them to work in the game?

Thanks in advance

well it's not as easy as shulz said....but it's not that hard...first you need the ships.i d/l'd mine from carotio's site...if the mods are bigger than 1 file ..it takes about 4 hrs to get the whole lot...once you have all parts of the file open it with winzip you then find the sea /roster folders...look over the read me's in the folders..pick the ships that you want ..add them to the sea folder..YOU MUST ADD THE SHIP OR SHIPS NAME IN THE ENGLISH OR GERMAN NAME FILES!!!!!!!the read me for each ship will have the name to add ..then add the ship or ships to the roster filder fot the contry you want to have them ...execpt the german capital ships and the u.s iowa class..only german and u.s for them ...MAKE A COPY OF YOUR CURRENT SEA/ROSTER FOLDERS .put them where ever you can find them..if after adding a ship or ships..you ctd http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif ..swap the folders and look at the new folders with a sharp eyeball to find the error...it takes a little time to get comfortable with doing this ..but it's well worth the time ..some use the jsgme to add ships..i do not ..i add them manualy to the folders . http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif..i only add 1 ship at a time also..it takes more time...but it's less prone to errors imho ..ALSO..if the files are in more than 1 part..aka 2-3 or more..place them in a folder .as the come in ..put them in order..once all the files are dl'd.right click on the first file and open with winzip..all the files should extract..into the folder..
