Well, since i feel that SHII is coming to the end of its operational life, why not spice it up a little? How about making the waves bigger? Ok, this is how you can do it.
------------------------------
Go to C:\Program Files\SSi (or whatever)\Silent Hunter II\Sim\Scenarios.

Find the Weather file. Just stare at it for a few seconds. No that wont do it. Open it. Scroll down to whrere it says [weather8]. Now, change the SeaState to 8, the wind to 60, E and visibility to 8. That it the waves made a little bigger.

Now, have you wanted to see a Ubi Soft Tanker Sim, or a Ubi Soft Destroyer command sim (oh that example doesent work!) or a Landing Craft sim. Make your own...

Go to C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\Silent Hunter II\Sim\Units, and decide which of the USSUboat models will be your host. I choose the first 4 boats as they are not used that much in normal campaign mode. Go to NSSUboat2B and open. Now, delete everything inside, and copy this into it. Copy inside the question marks.

?????????
;; NSSUBoat2B.UDF - Unit descriptor file for German Type IIB submarine

[UNIT]
Category = SUBMARINE
Type = GENERIC
Class = Type IIB
Model = MPPoceanLiner
Origin = Germany
Date = 3507
Crew = 110
UpdatesPerSecond = 10
Preprocess = TRUE
ExemptFromSilliness = TRUE
MaxTorpedoLaunchDepth = 22

[VESSEL]
Displacement = 81237
SubDisplacement = 81299
TestDepth = 120
CrushDepth = 155 ; diving depth 80m construction 120, calculated crush 150
MinSubmergedDepth = 5
MaxPeriscopeDepth = 11
AlarmTime = 30 ; little faster than IIA

[PROPULSION]
Type = DIESELELECTRIC
System = Propulsion
Screws = 2
Speed = 28.0
Range = 30000 ;8 ; @8kts
SubSpeed = 7.0
SubRange = 42
FuelCapacity = 100.00

[MANEUVER]
System = Maneuver
FullTurn = 110

[SENSOR1]
Type = LOOKOUT
System = Lookout

[WEAPON1]
Type = TURRET
System = GunGenStar
ElevRange = 45,90
TravRange1 = 0,170,-170

[COMM1]
Type = SEMAPHORE

[COMM2]
Type = BLINKER

[COMM3]
Type = RADIO
System = RadioComm

[ARMOR]
Side = 0
Deck = 0
Torpedo = 0

??
And now you can be captain of the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse or the August Victoria. I dont know if anyone knew this, but I hope it may help you enjoy SHII until the 18th.
