Hello, I would hope that you got the "Gold Edition' or the one with the U-Boat addon, if not you might need to patch to get up to date.

Depending on youre intrests and game style, I would suggest for realisim, RFB, RSRDC combo and for added fun Op Monsoon for the U-Boat side.

2. TMO is a MOD that ups the challenge to the game, the escorts are harder to evade.

3. RSRDC adds realisim to the shipping lanes.

4. RFB adds the crew management and shipping realisim,ship sinking realisim.

5. Op Monsoon, is the U-Boat add on KING, if you want to play the german side of the game.

there are many "mini MOD's" and one general "game fix mod" also to be found at the below link.

Most MODs are found for download at the link below, and go their fourm posts for explanation, and details.

Best suggestion, if your not used to subsims would be to play the stock game and get a feel for what is happening. Once you feel like you've got a hand of what is happening then you can move up to the mods. You'll find that the mods raise the bar on the level of realism at which you'll be playing.

I think it was just one of old stock , 1.3, I updated to 1.4 latest one ..

Do you get the Uboat add on from Ubisoft ?

TMO does A LOT more then that, but the above quote is one thing it does, and it's also the reason why i wouldn't recommend TMO to a beginning player.

thank for the help , I got the uboat mod from ubisoft. On that , I didn't want to trawl through hundreds of posts, but I take it that has bugs to fix too.

I was sitting out side of port waiting to start my mission, as soon as I started the engines and moved off, I get this voice calling out "Passing Thermal Layer" I was on the surface.

another quick one, in SH4 (us) I can change the depth of the torps in the Att/Pscope section, but in SH4 (uboat) I can't see this option. Is that because I was on easy to test it out?

another thing I would have like and mentioned this before in sh3, you only get renown points for sinkings. I sunk 1 small transport , but had 4 other Hits on another small transport and a couple of DD.

I think you should get points for damage too.

any thanks for the help!
