I think (ouch) that different folders would be good enough.

The game makes a folder called "SH3" on your C drive where it stores your career data. I wonder how that would work while having multiple installations on the same computer? Let us know if this experiment works. It would be useful information for those who would like to run different mods without having to bother with all the insallation hassles.

Yes, installing on different partitions, drives or even the same drive does work. All installations will point to the one set of Career files. In fact, SH3Cmdr R2.1 added specific support for this exact scenario as a lot of mod makers like having multiple installations in order to test their creations.

Don't be so hard on yourself. I doubt most people on here would have noticed that.

It's good to know we can have multiple installations on the same drive. I guess if you make desktop shortcuts you would have to label them so that they would point to the exact game you were running, i.e a Real U-boat version, an unmodded version, etc.
