View Full Version : weather mod?

05-02-2005, 10:37 PM
Dose anybody know if there is a way to mod the weather? I PERSANALY find the weather a bit distasteful for my liking. It seems to be heavy fog and rain way to much! In real life I have spent many days for several years out at sea and I can tell you that it aint that way out there. The constant heavy rain/ heavy fog combo makes for lousy game play. Atleast for me.

Oh, and by the way, if your a troll, GO AWAY! If you dont have something nice to say or constructive, GET LOST! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

I personally like the weather the way it is. It's a good variety and the stormy weather and driving rain add to the immersion of the sim.

The game seems to love extreme, seemingly without notice.

At 0 m/s there should still be a bigger base "roll" or 0 m/s shouldn't happen but very rarely. Also, I wish the weather would depend more on the time of year. With fog in the morning usually that lifts by day. Winds high from 1100 to 1600, that kinda thing.

Agree so let's now make a petition: Give us a weather mod!

I agree, the weather is a bit strange in the game sometimes...

In SH3, when the weather is bad, there is almost everytime lightnings and all... In North-East Atlantic it's weird... Stormy conditions in NE Atlantic don't imply everytime lightnings... It would be more realistic to have only rain, with (very) strong winds and waves... And snow too in winter.

BTW, I know that a weather engine needs a lot of computing, but I would like to see more realistic conditions in some areas, specially near lands. For example, in the "mer d'Iroise", around Ouessant island near Brest, the navigation should be far more difficult (specially in autumn), as in real life : strong tide currents (even with good weather), short and powerful cross waves, wind, etc. Everytime I leave Brest (in SH3), it's funny to see that the boat crosses easily this area...

I dont want to drasticly mod it, I just want to lessen the heavy fog/ heavy rain thing. But, what ever I can get to make it more playable would be great for me! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I'm on my forth patrol with the same weather. 12 solid weeks of storms and never able to use the deck gun...never!

And why is the highest wind speed only 15mts/s!?

I want hurricane strength winds! That'd make me think twice before surfacing in a storm. As it is now, it's just a nuisance.

I agree BobV_07.

The weather is so bad so often I actually wrote down the dates and the weather conditions for a patrol or two just to make sure I wasn't crazy. It turned out that out of a five week patrol four of those weeks were spent in fog of some degree.

I've stopped keeping track, but it's been similar for all of my patrols in 1942 so far (it's currently September '42 in my game). As a matter of fact, my current patrol has been nothing but fog with the exception of one day when I left port.

Argue realism all day, but the short of the long of it is that after awhile it's just plain no fun (for me).

I agree. Storms for an entire patrol four patrols in a row is no fun.
