    I have been sitting on these two for a good year now and yes you can have them.

    The first one is for SH3, its just a change of the night map and should be alright with stock SH3 and all the super mods as well.

    Blue night map.
    SH3 Blue Night Map.7z

    Day time, night time.

    This one is a SH4 mod and once again you need to be on v1.5 and is only for stock SH4 only. This is a mod for the lazy skipper, yes your see refit bases saving you that long trip back to home base. Please Read Me the Notepad very important.

    More refit bases
    SH4 More Refit Bases.7z

    The U-Boat add on changes the version from v1.4 to v1.5 and no Ubi did not release this as a separate patch.

    Finally picked up a copy of SH4, it isn't much of an improvement on SH3 and the made up medals irritate me but hopefully with some of these addons it'll be brought up a bit.

    Plenty of mods out there.

    BTW: if you get the U-Boat add on I found that some mods for the American side cause CTD...pick up the JSGME Mod so you can activate or deactivate them when playing on the German side, that is to say, if you pick up the U-Boat add on.

    If you want to get rid of that orange circle when you dive and that wibble wobble underwater look let us know.

    Oh that under water effect is irritating. It also annoys me that every now and then i'll be cruising around and my ship will suffer massive damage for no good reason which is an irritating bug. Also for some reason it won't let me end my current patrol which is a pain. Need to mod it up i think to get she of the medals and more annoying aspects to the interface.

    Here is how to...

    I got my SH4 on a different drive any how you know the file path. SilentHunter4 \Data\Filters folder open folder and locate Underwater open this with the note pad. As I recall you should see 0.025 change this to 0.000 save and exit, job done.


    You not hit a small land mass have you? Not knowing what version you have sounds odd to me...check the box should say v1.4...as you have not got the U-Boat add on then it will not be v1.5 Ubi only released this patch with the add on and not on its own.


    What do you mean? Patrol area or returned to base...don't forget your base could move. The tilted anchor shows home base.


    I think there is a mod out there for the medals. Some I would recommend from Subsims would be these...

    Ships...well that goes without saying. Most are straight forward, some need there names put it.

    Bombs...changes the bombs dropped by enemy planes slightly weaker to make it more real.

    Historical four bladed props...changes sub props from three to four.

    Smaller Rocks...reduces the sea bed rock by 40%.

    SMOKE ON THE WATER -beta2-....Nice black smoke when the ship goes down, there may be a update now.

    Sobers explosion mod v2.0...better explosion when ships are hit...again this may be updated.

    No small land mass, i just get catastrophic damage and when i look no island, ship or anything else. It also made me laugh when i bumped into a spy's life raft and it sounded like i had crashed into the yamato!

    It turns out they had shifted my home base without telling me which is irritating. Still, I've had some good patrols and my 2 40mm guns mean there is hardly any point submerging to get away from patrol aircraft.

    Still keep getting destroyed by (apparently) nothing, also I've noticed that my deck watch are nearly blind, not spotting ships I'm about to collide with when using the time compression. Ah well, still enjoying it, just got to get the U-Boat add on now.
