I used to use a load of separate mods, but I've recently started using the Improved U-boat 'super mod' (a diverse collection of many mods, including the Ailantd mods I think). I'm loving it so far.

By the way... Welcome back! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hello!! Can you tell me where to get that Improved U-Boot "super mod"?? Im downloading some other mods from SubSim.com and i will be trying them out. But what im really looking for is for a mod that increases the amount of traffic, both for merchants and warships. Thnx in advance!!!

Improved U-boat will do everything you mentioned and a lot more. You can get Improved U-boat 1.3 (the latest version) and nearly every other SH3 mod ever made from:

http://u-boot.realsimulation.com/

(click on 'SH3 Downloads'. Mod description files can be found in: Articles > Silent Hunter 3 File Readmes)

You will need to un-install any mods before you install IUB 1.3. You can then install other mods afterwards (using JSGME), but you have to be careful they don't clash.

Also check out 'SH3 Commander' and the 'JSGME Mod Enabler' (found in: SH3 Downloads > SH3 Must Have Downloads)

Yeah IUB Is awesome! i play on 71% realism (i think) and i was lucky to get past dover alive on my first patrol, although i had to go back to base (flak gun, deck gun, periscope was destroyed!! IUB adds so much!

Thanks

I would recomend Grey Wolves with NYGM Tonnage war mods. IUB is good, but 1.3 is too buggy and I couldnt get it to run right.

They are both good mods done by good people, but I prefer Grey Wolves over IUB

Same situation here.
I guess it's more then 7months since the time I stoped playing Sh3, lol.
But I got RUb1.45 - UwaC combinedV1.51.7z as I instaled Sh3 and Patch v1.43 and only after I saw Grey wolfes that I assume is for a non patched version.
Is this correct?
And if so can I install a clean Sh3 on another folder or do I have to remove Sh3 completly and if so will starforce need to be removed also (I still have a starforce cleaner/remover somewhere on my hd!)
Btw, what other mods should I use with RUb1.45 - UwaC combinedV1.51.7z, besides skin mods (I assume those dont have any compability pbl)?

Ok its simple to have 2 Silent hunter 3's
If you have more than one hard drive copy and paste the CLEAN silent hunter 3 file into the other one (im not sure if you can install twice!)

If you dont have 2 hard drives then copy and paste to a different folder in the Program files Folder, and just create another shortcut. I did this one clean install for Multiplayer and one modded version For single Player.
I hop its not too confusing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I thought about that but the pbl is that I already patched the game and added RUb1.45 - UwaC combinedV1.51.7z.
I usually install all games like this.
Clean install, copy/past to a back folder.
then install patches and or mods as required.
But on Sh3 i was distracted and installed the patch before creating the backupl lol.
So now I can copy/patch a sh3 v1.43 as a backup (as I added RUb1.45 - UwaC combinedV1.51.7z via Jgmse) but not a clean v1.0.
Perhaps Gw work over v1.43?!

The GW Mod is ment to be applied over the latest patched version of the game.

You have to be careful when you are combining the different parts of the GW mod into the one folder. It took me 2 days of messing around, trying to get it to work, to realize the folder were being combined wrong.

Tks for the tiphttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Started using also Sh comander and Sh companion also.
1st mission was a bit painfull, I spent a lot of fuel stupidly and when I engaged 1 C2 I missed all torpedos due to miscalculation.
Besides I didnt manage to reload the remaing torps, dont know cause the sea was 2 brave or My crew was 2 tired (using Rub fatigue mod on Sh comander).
So I had to retire to base and last miles where done submerged cause i had no fuel left at all.
