There is also a 'world of warplanes' planned by the same developer:
http://worldofwarplanes.com/#

And 'world of planes' by the bird of prey guys, who evidently sneakily scooped up the name in time: http://www.worldofplanesgame.com/en/
Actually their offering looks more convincing to sim fans at the moment.

I think you can do that in one of the Silent Hunter games...

Supposed to be able...the actual implementation was marred by the group responsible for the networking coding pulling out of the project IIRC. There may be community mods that make it work (SH2 and Destroyer Command I think were the games involved) but it's a no go with out of the box versions.

Silent Hunter 2 and Destroyer Command can be combined and used as one game that you can play either Sub or Destroyer. Still have both games... but haven't played them for a while.

There are also surface ships for both SHIII & SHIV that can be played.

Did it work out of the box or were community mods needed?

Same question, is this with mods or out of the box?

Silent Hunter 2 and Destroyer Command can be combined out of the box. There is a UBI 1.1 patch for this merge.

The surface ships, sub & armed merchant cruisers mods and such for either SHIII or IV are mods that can be added into the either game.

Here is a couple links for the two patches needed.

Destroyer Command patch and the Silent Hunter II patch.

Cool, will have to give those a try. I think I still have disks for both games http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I do have both discs and can helpout with questions by a quick setting up of the games at the moment with my present rig.

But I'm going to be setting up a new rig this coming week... so I'm not sure if I'll run into any problems as far as going from XP to Windows7 with any of these older games?

There are workarounds listed on forums for most of them, I recently got the original Thief Gold from Eidos working on Win7 x64

There was still a small online following for SHII & DC. Didn't know if it is still around.

But after a bit of wine and a hurricane making tracks for us in the following days. Time to hit the sack. LoL

World Of Battleships does look fairly good in the screenshots... but wonder how is the actual game play?

If I have a chance later today after some storm prep work around the house... I'm going to install a SHII/DC game.

Here is a Subsim thread that has some info on getting started with SHII with Windows7.

Don't know how old this info on playing SHII online is or if it is still usable... but here are the links.
