SILENT HUNTER 4 MODS
'Mods' - unofficial modifications created by SH4 enthusiasts to enhance specific aspects of the game such as graphics, models, sounds, interface controls, etc.
There's a growing number of mods for SH4. Before you install a mod, bear in mind that future patches for SH4 will probably not work unless you remove any mods before patching. If you use JSGME (link above) it will simplify the process of installing and un-installing your mods.
