Before you think I'm crazy, look at the picture below. Unfortunately this happened at night just after I'd refueled my IXD from U-463 so the picture isn't as clear as it might be---but wow!! After I refueled and started heading on my way, I saw some strange wakes in the water and to my surprise, they were dolpines.

These are the mods I'm running: RUB (my modded version) , Harbor Traffic, NYGM Sinking and Air mod.

Alright, before anyone points this out to me, I know that the reademe which is included with Steiblers milk cow mod (which is inlcuded with the Harbor Traffic mod) states that you might see dolphins at the milk cow sites. But, I've refueled from many milk cow sites and have never seen the dolpins before. I actually forgot about this until I saw them. Pretty cool

Edit: How can I get this to be a larger picture? Is it photobucket or is it how I'm posting it?

There was a pod of three in front of this lone dolphin that I got pictures of but I like this screen shot the best as you can see U-177 behind it. I also have a screen shot of the pod if anyone wants to see that.

Speaking of U-177, has anyone spent much time in the indian ocean playing the Monsun boats? I'm kind of hesitant to spend the time it would take to get to the indian ocean (I don't have a ton of time to play) just to find out that there are no ships to sink.

Cheers,

J

What do you think? 1/4 ton? Worth a torpedoe?

I assume you have IUB mod installed. The dolphins were a planned feature of SH-3 but were never implemented until a modder finished the job. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The dolphin mod is part of the IUB package and thats why you came across them. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif So dont worry we believe you. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Nah don't waste a torpedo on the cute little dolphins. Just throw out a tuna net. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Dolphins are the fruit of the sea... you can boil them, broil them, fry them, bake them, theres um Dolphin kabobs, dolphin soup, dolphin sandwich, dolphin steaks, dolphin veal, and my personal favorite dolphin slurry. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif Just kidding (from the lawyer) Psychfilm in no way endorses the hunting or sensless slaughter of any of God's creatures especially dolphins. And yes the big softy cried when Flipper was caught in a horrific 30 car pile up on I-94 just outside of Kalamazoo.

mmmmmmh, dolphin steak sandwich...little bit of mayo...tomato...provalone cheese slightly melted on a crisp bed of lettuce. On Rye, slightly toasted with a smige of horseradish sauce.

Just kidding...don't attack them...or they may attack you...

Dolphins and Porpoises are cool. I loved watching them race our boat up in Alaska!

We also ran into a pod of killer whales, cool! They are fast, sleek and deadly (and love eating other whales by the way...Nature takes care of it's own)

Killer whales dont eat other whales. Their name is based on an widely spread misunderstanding.

They hunt for robs from time to time but mainly eat small fishes.

And they are excellent sonar operators http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Cel...I'm afraid they do...and they do it viscously by attacking the spinal column of the large whale to paralyze it...then they essentially eat the large whale alive. This was just captured on film a few years ago.

here's some proof...

but this brings up a humorous note, I saw the movie version of "hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy" last year and found it very funny...but the openning had this song sung by Dolphins as they were abandoning earth to the humans!:



"So Long & Thanks for All the Fish" was also the name of a song opening the movie version of Hitchhiker's Guide, as written by Joby Talbot, Garth Jennings & Christopher Austin, and performed by Hilary Summers, Kemi Ominiyi & the RSVP Voices. The song goes:

So long and thanks for all the fish
So sad that it should come to this
We tried to warn you all, but oh dear


You may not share our intellect
Which might explain your disrespect
For all the natural wonders that grow around you
So long, so long and thanks for all the fish


Your world's about to be destroyed
There's no point getting all annoyed
Lie back and let the planet dissolve around you


Despite those nets of tuna fleets
We thought that most of you were sweet
Especially tiny tots and your pregnant women


So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
So long, so long and thanks for all the fish


If I had just one last wish
I would like a tasty fish


If we could just change one thing
We would all have learned to sing


Come one and all
Man and mammal
Side by side
In life's great gene pool


So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
So long, so long and thanks for all the fish

Great song http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

The hitchhikers guide is a great movie.

I havent seen the new made one yet by i know the original movie.

I like the scene were those aliens build a super computer that is supposed to calculate what the meaning of life is.

He calculates for hundreds of years and as he is finished after all that time the aliens gather in front of the monitor and the computer displays :

"THE MEANING OF LIFE IS : ................. 42 !

And they all look http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

TAL...Great photo...you should enter it in the screenshot constest.

I wonder if that mod got the killer whale's speed right...Those things MOVE! It's like one minute they are up, they submerge and then they come up in a few moments about a 1/2 mile away.

Yes CEL the answer to everything is ... "42" and you must be using a good Babelfish.

You need to see the new movie...It's good!

after long time of frustration over my idiotic crew[I](not hearing planes till theyre riht over me
not hitting a big gray target in broad daylight with the deckgun etc)i decided to replace them with dolphins... and a salmon as WC cleaner

works great!!!
