Greetings fellow sim submariners!!!

I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to the forum.... Over the last few weeks I have been reading them, and I must say --- the community here is excellent. I am looking forward to adding.


I first played Silent Service for the Atari 1040 ST and was hooked to WWII submarine sims! Unfortunately, that was the last one I played.

I picked up this game, as I liked the Pacific theatre also featured in Silent Service.


I am having much fun in the game, despite some few frustrations and having to lower the settings so that my mouse pointer moves with closer accuracy.


Looking forward to sailing with you on the high seas!

Howdie Howdie you picked yourself a fine game to play. Once you get familiar with how the game plays I recommend getting into installing Super Mods like Trigger Maru , Real Fleet Boat and all that jazz.

My advice is to add the "Real Environmental" Mod to the SH4 game , this Mod make the ocean look Amazing and very realistic

Thank you all!!!

I do have a question about the forum --- how do you put in the nifty little avatar picture below your username? And how do you put in the even niftier signature picture?

I'll get to work on making a picture for my signature --- is there a size constraint? Or file size constraint?

Thank you again!!!

If you look at the top you will see many stickys posted. One is about avatars, ect. Take time to read all the stickys...Make sure you read "Tips, Mods ."

Edit...avatars was under the sticky "Forums"

But heres the link..

There we go!

Now I have an avatar and signature pic!! The avatar all I did was resize it... The signature pic I did a little more work to it -- but made it in about 20 minutes..... Ill do a better one sometime later.
