View Full Version : RuB mod- still worth it?

12-04-2007, 04:40 PM
I know that the new GWX is coming out, but I can't get it due to hardware issues. So I was wondering, is it worth it to get RuB version 1.45? With exams over soon, I am looking forward to some more SH3. I am confused a little about some of the following features:

'Lite' versions of the radio mods added. Mods adapted from various sources. 051016: Added Hospital Ship mod. Mod by Iambecomelife and Sergbuto.
Added ability to sail on the surface with decks awash.
Added French language support.
Added new 'Speed of Sound' mod version 1.2. Mod by Average Joe.
Updated (8 October 2005) Improved Convoys mod added. Mod by Jasonb885 & Sergbuto.
Added Cloud fix. Mod by Seeadler.
Added new world map with text for all major ocean features. Mod by FLB sale U-999.
Fixed misaligned cables on some Type VII boats. Mod by Flakwalker.
Added Officer Icon mod. Mod by Captain America.
Fixed weather reports icons. Mod by Marhkimov.
All new Campaign_SCR.mis file added. Mod & Bugfixes by Teddy Bar & Stiebler.
Fixed some (though not yet all) incorrect town and port alignment colours. Adjustment by Beery.

What is Speed of Sound mod?
What's improved convoys?
What's "Added new world map with text for all major ocean features"
"All new Campaign_SCR.mis file added" Does it mean there are battles like Denmark Strait?

A few more questions.

What else is there? I can't seem to find the complete description.
Does it work with Commander?
Does it add new ports like GWX and WAC, since they take about 8-10 minutes to load on my machine?

Well, if you never tried it, you never know, what you missed! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
Anyway, sure it is worth a try! However, I must confess, back then I made my own tweak mod for RuB as well as I do now for GWX, so I'm not sure, I'm the best to ask! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Speed of sound mod - I know from subsim that it's in GWX as well, I guess it modifies the sh3.sdl, the file which controls the sound in SH3
Improved convoys - a mod of the convoy routes, their dates and their content. Don't know exactly now, what was in it, since I don't use RuB campaign anymore, but my own...
World map - on your F5 map, you can see land and sea. On the seas like on any real map, the names of the seas, bays, straits etc has been named.
SCR - I suppose some historical events were put in. I do recall that the Bismarck battle was put in...
Else - well.....
Com - probably...
Ports - thinks so yes, compared to stock, but not many extra, and not as many as I'm preparing...

light version of the radio mod - http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif
that one caught my eye since I'm about 2-weeks away from releasing RadioLog_Expanded with over 7,250 radio messages http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
