View Full Version : OT: Listen up sim lovers!

For all of you sim lovers waiting for the patch that have missed the release og SHIII (it's a ubisoft game so I guess some advertising for another game ther is OK http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif).

I purchased Silent Hunter III yesterday and must say this...

OMFG! They did it!

It is simply light years better than any other sub sim previously released. It is all that I had hoped for and MUCH MORE after seeing the movies and reading the specs. Some flaws (like the low poly aircraft http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) but anyway, if you like simulators in general you must buy it. You don't even have to like sub simulators - it's a must anyway!

Back to my VIIC and the icy north atlantic...

I bought it yesterday but I've only had a short play as I got BiA at the same time. From what I've played it's sweet... except in the training mission I couldn't get my AI AA gunner to fire at the planes. I don't know if it was a limitation added to the training to make you do it manually or what.

EDIT: But otherwise, I certainly agree that the Ready Room is the last place this belongs.

You're right - I was just so exited and wanted to spread the news (and the ready room is where I usually go on the IL2 forums)

Besides there are actually strong links to the major topics in the ready room http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Is the ammo belt composition of the german 20mm 38MII flak gun really correct? It feels to weak!

There is an AI Avenger in SHIII - why can't we fly it?!!

There are british BB:s but no american - WHY?!!

(this last part is meant as a joke and not to offend any of those involved in these discussions!)

I haven't played a sub sim before but I picked up SHIII as well.

I must say it is fantastic. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I agree that sim lovers should really enjoy this game.

I think I should mention that I feel almost foolish in my above post. My problem was using the video tutorial as a guide to using the flak gun. It tells of how you can change the flak gunner's target with the binoculars, but it didn't mention that you have to designate a target with them to start with. All is good now.
