I found this article that unfortunately makes advertising on $eewolves (of course I informed them of the scam it was), but I've nonetheless read it carefully...

http://news.softpedia.com/news/Get-Ready-for-an-Unoffic...II-Add-On-5156.shtml (http://news.softpedia.com/news/Get-Ready-for-an-Unofficial-Silent-Hunter-III-Add-On-5156.shtml)

Quote :

'When asked by Softpedia News, the Ubisoft Romania spokesperson, Silvia Velicu, said that Ubisoft ... has not reached a decision regarding the making of an official Silent Hunter III add-on.
In an interview carried out by Softpedia News, Tiberius Lazar, lead game designer and Cristian Hriscu-Badea, 3D Artist, said they are considering an add-on, but the decision is in the hands of the producers.'

I believed development was supposed to have started already ???

I wouldnt worry too much at this stage,

We know the dev team is working on a new project and that everyone at Ubi is refusing to comment on the subject of SH3 expansion. I think these two things can generally be considered good signs rather than bad.

Silent hunter 3 was only released four months ago, if they do make an expansion, its unlikley they will announce it until its about 50% or so complete.

Well, this article has been posted on July 21st, sowe can assume that one week ago the Addon was not in the schedule, while at the same time it has been said the developers were working on a new project... I guess that means the addon project has been buried.

Hi everyone,

As this is my first msg, I'd just like to say hello. I've been a long-time lurker of these forums and I'm a big fan of WWII u-boat history and of this game. If I'd taken the time to get to know SH1 and SH2 a little better I believe my social life would have ended a lot sooner than it did a few months ago. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

OT bit: While searching for screenshots of u-boats I came across this German games review site claiming to have in-game shots of " Silent Hunter 3: Seew├┬Âlfe (http://www.gamestar.de/aktuell/screenshots/PlayerPicList.jsp?galleryId=1198) ".

Amongst the pictures displayed, there are some titled "Before" and "After" depicting NY Harbour and it shows a definite improvement in the environmental detail.

If I'm not mistaken this looks like the same project you are discussing in this thread. If I am mistaken then I apologise for wasting your time and raising your hopes unnecessarily.

Well technically "new project" could still mean SH3 expansion.... who knows.

Argh! Note to self: ALWAYS check for new stickies! Now that I've caught up with the latest news I'll apologise for inadvertently advertising this contraversial "addon" even further than it might deserve. First post too... what a moron...
