for me it's Sh3 it just feels superior to SH4 in every way

SH3 plus SH3 Commander plus GWX 3.0.

Does what it says on the tin.

I prefer U-boats to fleet boats 'cos they are closer to my culture and experience, but hey, whatever 'floats your boat'.

SH III Comander is the official expansion pack? I remember that was said to be just a bunch of free mods packed and sold by Ubisoft. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

SH3 Commander is a free mod. Nothing to do with Ubi. You can download it from Subsim.

Oh! Yes, I'll check Subsim, they always have some nice downloads to all those games.

You will have to do a complete un-install then re-load the game before upgrading. There are directions for moving saved files/careers so you don't have to lose everything.

SH 3 Commander gives some nice options...

GWX 3.0 Gold means you are likely to get sunk more often... It ramps up the difficulty quite a bit. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I like SH-3 many players like SH-3 and I see it if my server is open.
I can make flotilla missions like in a movie.
I rather not just warships in my folder , that should be all well organized .
I'm not much online, through my work.
SH-3 for me is the best game.

Just to add to what has been said - there is aalso a utility called Multi SH3 which allows for multiple installs of the Silent Hunter 3 game on your computer. There are directions in the forum as to how to do it but it does require a clean install of the game - so take the advice and save your game saves.

Multi SH3 allows you to have for example -

Stock Silent Hunter 3
Silent Hunter 3 - GWX 3.0
and others if you so desire.

MultiSH3 just creates a different save folder for your progress in your My Documents folder.

If I remember correctly SH3 commander can be run over the top of any version of the game and removed just as easily.

Any problems just post back and I will find all the relevant links for you.

Edit - here is the link for Multi SH3
