Just for fun, shV is on the left while the shots on the right are from sh3.

The shV shots are from a quicktime vid of the preview code so dont represent the final quality of the game.
The sh3 shots are from a modded version of sh3.

i know that it's not the final version of SH5, but at this stage, UBI just got owned by the modders of SH3 (joking)... they both look really good, but no modded SH3 will probably compete with the added features of SH5, atmosphere, and various other stuff :P

Nice pics. I appreciate the newer graphics, but I do hope that Ubi puts as much effort into "reality" as it does eye candy. By that I mean the whole concept of simulating the U-boat experience as expressed in thousands of posts during the life of SH3. All the graphics sweetness in the world cannot substitute for all the things we hoped for in SH3 but didn't get: interaction with BdU, being a part of the U-boat fleet rather than fighting the war all by yourself, adherence to historic reality, i.e. no stupid Hurrican fighters deployed on ASW patrols, no swarming by whole squadrons in the wrong period of the war, realistic damage models and sinking models, etc. "Aces of the Deep" now looks like "Pong" compared to SH3, 4 and 5, but the immersive atmosphere of that game still has players remembering it fondly. A game that looks pretty but doesn't deliver the goods is worse than a game that delivers a good experience but doesn't look so pretty, if you get what I mean.

Ubi really has a chance to deliver this time. We have aired our opinions and beefs, now they have a heritage of work done by the modding community to draw from. I'm really wishing for good things from SH5. We now have the coding and hardware sophistication capable of giving us a great gaming experience.

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif SH3 looks better to me in screenshots. Of course this is a mod of the game. But SH3 runs nicely on my computer while looking quite good. SH5 on the other hand I know will not.

Is there any word yet on "minimum" system requirements and realistic system requirements?

Where did you get those shots in SHIII? I've never been able to get into the engine room, the galley, or most of those other places. I can get to the control room, Captain's cabin, radio and sonar cubbys, and the conning tower and that's it! The hatches are locked beyond that. And I have GWX too!

Some guys have been modding access to other areas. We don't often hear of such mods here at Ubi's forum. This sort of thing you'd more likely hear about over at SubSim.

The modded versions of SH3 still take some beating and although the graphics have been improved in SH5 I still prefer the screenshots of the SH3 version.

I do like the sh5 screenshots but the sh3
screenshots give me the feeling that i am
really onboard.

There is too much space in sh5. Ceiling to high
rooms too wide. The lighting in sh3 is much better.

But we have modders.

I think one way to cut down on that space is to place more crewman into those areas that are accessible, and have the population in the various compartments vary according to the sub's current activity, such as diving, reloading torpedoes, watch changes, eating, etc. There must be more crewmen visible because that is how it was. U-boats were very cramped, as any viewer of Das Boot would understand. I don't have any complaints about the interior dimensions, they only appear too large because the boat is not crowded enough.
