I too have both, and I agree, SH3 is still #1. But, 6 months from now, that could end up being SH4.

SH4 is still an infant, and has much room to grow. There still isn't a real decent Supermod yet for SH4, but Atlantic Sharks is in the making, although I would like a really cool Pacific supermod instead. Real Fleet Boat is OK, and I just installed Trigger Maru, but I don't qualify them as "Supermods".

I expect SH3 to stay popular for many years to come, as I know of 2 new projects in the making, so SH3 developement is far from over.

One is War Ace Campaign 3.0, and the second one I mentioned is so new, it don't have a name yet(I am actually on the mod team), but I have not been granted permission to say anymore about this project yet, but I will keep y'all posted.

Last two nights I played once again SH3 with GWX and ...
it's still much better :
- less planes in the sky (outside main ally ports)
- much more different targets especially civilian liners/vessels (but still less occasion to meet fat TF)and more countries involved (+ more neutral)
- I like simply things - salvo, manual change u-boot type or equipment , better orders/promotion/crew systems etc
- longer War at Sea
- and better atmosphere ... guess why http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

SH4 has better graphic, good different patrol orders and you can play more than x 1024

What is Your impression ?

(I expect once again nice surprise in GWX 1.04 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif)

Guys,

Some advice/ opinions please?

I have not played SH3 for some time - well over a year and a lot has happened since then (new patches and huge mods). Recently, I have been playing SH4 and now with TM 1.3A.

My question - amongst the SH3 community, is there now a "default general standard" set up in terms of mods/ supermods that people use?

I have just installed the 1.4b patch and GWX is currently installling. Should I be looking at other mods past this?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Well no surprise, stock SH3 planes were BS...way too many for one thing. Modders are already on that for SH4.

Ya the bigger variety of targets is nice, but no surprise as more nations were involved.

Can't agree with the rest, except for automatic salvo I prefer the SH4 set up...in fact SH4 is pretty accurate and more like the real USN TDC than the German version in SH3. The position keeper is and was very clever gadgetry.

Crew management no question is faaaar improved in SH4...no more worrying about fatigue (unless you forget your crew on battle stations and that is just like leaving your boat on silent running) much more detailed and realistic IMHO.

Type XXI in SHIII

vs

No Narwhale (spelling I know) in SHIV.

Dunno about you, but that clinches SHIII for me. OK IF a Narwhale is added in a mod, I'll have to re-evaluate my preferences, but UNTIL then SHIII for me. Besides, I don't have SHIV yet http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I like US boats more then German boats, but as it stands with the mods out there SH3 is a better game. Maybe someday SH4 mods will be as good.

I like my SH3.
*My trust in Ubisoft got completely destroyed with the SH4 release (and people laughed when i said its gonna be buggy).
*I like my IX/D2.
*GWX is great, but I couldn't stand the insane slowdown. My machine ain't powerful enough. Still 1 more point for SH3.
*You can dive deep in a U-boat
*Chronometer is working
*Did I mention SH4 was buggy, and patch 1.3 didn't fix many of them?

<span class="ev_code_RED">So what if the graphics are great. Releasing an unfinished game is like handing in a school project with a really nice title page, but with half the stuff missing. And then you complain why the teacher doesn't like you... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif</span> That's my philosophy on the subject
