Just purchased SH3 (cringes - yes, I'm behind the times), and am *blown away* by the game. I immediately patched to 1.4b, which fixed a bunch of issues, but of course I'm still playing vanilla. I am in a campaign and still noticing some of the gamier aspects of vanilla. I am trying to research the various realism mods, and trying to decide on the best "big rework" package. I am sure this may have been discussed previously, but, am hoping for your current opinions/experiences/anecdotes with mods you're using, and what you like best, and maybe some links to concentrated info (if they exist).
As an example, from another genre, I purchased Rome Total War and didn't even finish a vanilla game before modding with the Rome Total Realism mod - I never looked back. Now, I'm hoping to do something like that with SH3.
From what I see so far, the "Not Your Mother's . . " mod may be the way to go for me - but am hoping some of you will chime in with info on what the current "big packages" are, opinions of overall effect - anything you can provide. I know different mods are the result of a lot of research and creative hard work, so i don't want to step on any toes by sounding like a popularity contest. Bottom line, just hoping for a "this is what I like most, and why" discussion. Any input will help - thanks in advance!
