So....Maybe it's just because I have not had that many missions into the game, but has anyone seen snow or ice?....It would be cool to have the boats caked in ice and icicles dangling off the cabling.....Or maybe I just need to sail a little further North.

It would really be cool if we had snow also...no matter though, still great.

We, tough men of the U-Boats, do not feel pain, are never cold, and do not care about cozy snowflakes falling over our eyelashes and blinding us when we look for enemy ships!

There was an interesting thread about this at SubSim.com about a month ago.

As I recall, some have seen ice-covered fir trees in the far north at the appropriate times of the year.

Overall, I think precipitation in the stock game is modeled in a very limited way. I believe modders were toying with the notion of thick snow as a 'very thick rain', as far as its graphical presentation from the conning tower view.

I've seen ice covered foliage in many places during the winter months. I really wish there was some snow though, seems like that would have been an easy thing to implement. Another thing that would have been cool but maybe to time consuming for the devs is a separate ice model for the U-Boats, when traveling in cold areas. I'm sure many of you have seen those pics of ships and/or u-boats with loads of ice covering everything. Probably would be a good mod but temp would have to be added to the weather system.
