People who prefer "realism" tend to use RUb. I use IUB because it consolidates a lot of other mods into one, including a lot of "eye candy." IUB is built upon RUb, but it differs in some areas so that they are not the same.

I personally prefer Improved Uboat 102. It's a 600mb overhaul of the game where as Real U-boat seems to be only a 45 mb overhaul. With IUB I've found I don't need any other mods except for no_fatigue, and gramaphone music.

Same mods too! A good combination http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I have a slow connection, so downloading a large file such as IUB can take days http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif but there's also something else to consider in all this.. the speed of your computer, i don't know for sure, but i'd assume all those graphical changes and sound file changes may slow down your system, especially if you're using a low end graphics card. I use RUB, since i like to go for realism but i also find myself enjoying this game on my laptop, since i can take it anywhere http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
thus the question.. has anyone noticed a substantial slow down of their gameplay with the IUB?

IUB102 here as well. I also runSH3 Commander which allows me to use the fatigue model from Rub as well as to other benifits. This is the only thing I think still needs attention with IUB.

I'm one of the few sticking with IUB version 1.01. I tried 1.02 but it caused problems which disappeared as soon as I reverted to version 1.01. My machine is no slouch, either: Athlon 64 3200+, 2 gigs of memory, Nvidia 128 meg card, Audigy 2 sound card.

I didnt notice any effect on my computer from the normal game. Playing with IUB 102 works for me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif have what you can call an average computer.

IUB 1.02, i think that it includes a big improvement in gameplay and improves graphics a lot, it isn't a problem on my system as it is quite good, AMD X2 4200, 7800gtx 1 gig Ram.

what i enjoyed the most is the upgrade in realism while still retaining gameplay, nights are more realistic, you can't see for miles underwater, subnets and mines and refueling boats included and the deck gun takes a little longer to reload, though not as long as in RUB. Good blend of relism and gameplay for me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
