Hello again everyone,
After a long break due to a downed computer and a run in with World of Warcraft Im back. But I remember having a few questions. First and formost.

1. Are there any mods I should get? I see alot advertised out theer but which are worth my time?

2. When on a mission. Do you vets use time compression to get to your designated patrol area? If so what do you do when you get there? Troll along looking? Dive and use the parascope to find enemys?

3. Any other pearls of wisdom anyone can give me. Before anyone says....I know "dont get blown up", lol.

Thanks in advance for any help. I see SHIV will be coming out soon. I just hope this older comp can handle it lol. But, in the mean time I need to get used to this so I might have a chance once SHIV comes out.

<salutes> Good to be back!

Welcome back!

1-The best mods out there are GWX, WAC, NYGM (don't ask me what NYGM stands for.) GWX=Grey Wolves Expansion, WAC=War Ace (I think) And several smaller mods can really make the game what you want it to be, realistic, or semi-gameish. There is also SH3 Commander, you can use this to create/delete careers, edit the Time compression settings, and some realism points of the game. there is also SH3 Gen, this is a program that will give you a little bit of an intellegence report, and the results will be written on your nav map.

2-Time Compression can be your friend or foe, depending on when you use it. anything over 256 will make an air attack not happen, and at anything higher, and your watch crew will miss things. If you're short on fule, just go to about the center of the grid, go to periscope depth and just wait, listen, and look. If you have good fule, you can do whatever, after you patrol your grid, you can go around and look for targets, etc.

3-yes, don't sink http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Hope I was helpful, maybe not for point 3, but still, I hope I was helpful. If you need anything else, just ask, someone will always answer http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif, most of the time http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif.

NYGM stands for Not Your Grandmother's... torpedo damage, merchant vulnerability, etc http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Thanks for the advice and for the mod list =) Ill have to find them and check them out. Gonna get used to the sim before getting them ready though.

Also, how do most of you play? Do you play online? or just single player and do the missions over and over? Just curious that way I can get some good idea's and change up my game play every now and again.

I tried a couple single misions, they are OK. I normally play Campaign, and try to not die going from September 1939 to the end. Wasn't successful so far
