Sorry to bother you again, I have a bunch of questions and a few requests for you:

1. Compared to OHII that TWoS' campaign is based on, have you added/removed from the game any national ship roster? If yes, can you please give me a list of all the nations that have at least one merchant/naval ship in their roster?

2. Is TWoS' DefSide.cfg exactly the same used by OHII? If not, can you send me a copy of it?

3. I suppose that OH's campaign_radiomessages have been edited since the release of TWoS and encrypted for decoding with SkyBaron's Enigma machine also part of TWOS. Can you please send me copies of those files (encrypted and non-encrypted versions)? If someone wants to add new messages, how can he encode them?

On the other hand, is there a way I can extract game files from TWoS installer without overwriting stock files? That would be useful for modders who want to make their TWoS-compatible mods without bothering you every time :)


I can answer part of question 3

Silent Hunter 5\data\Applications\Enigma Message Encryptor
is where you will find the app to encrypt enigma messages.

The manual can be found in
Silent Hunter 5\The Wolves of Steel - Documentation\M4 Enigma

HI Guys I have been working on the external graphics of the boat a bit. I am working on a mod I will probably upload in a few days if anyone is interested. Here is some screens:

Definitely good stuff! Please, share your work with the community :D

OK Guys file is up at this link:

https://www.mediafire.com/file/5se6a...ernal.zip/file

It is not so much a mod as a way to combine several of Nozaurio's great files that he made back around 2014 to use the type 7B and 7C boats with your own Captains emblems. See the screen shots here:
https://imgur.com/a/Uhm8a2F

These were made using a combination of Nozaurio's great texture files and my Boogies Refit ver 2.0. The lighting and colors may vary in your own game depending on whether or not you use Reshade. I used Reshade version 4.54 in the shots. The preset.ini is included in my refit mod if uou want to use it. It adds Technicolor and HD shaders that really enhance color and detail in the game and adds more natural depth to the shadows, esp since Vecko's last update to TWoS

Well done Boogie, those textures are amazing :up:

May I suggest that you upload the mod on subsim and/or open a [REL] thread to discuss/advertise it?
I am afraid that the TWoS thread is not the best place for doing that: in a few days your post below will get lost among many others, and no one will know about your nice mod :)

Yes thank you. It is now posted in the SH5 graphics mods along with my other mods for the boat internals. I can't take a lot of credit for this one though as it is more a way of combining Nozaurio's great work from 2014, which are still avaliable on mediafire. He did most of the work and it is probably the best and most detailed graphics for the boat externals avaliable for this game. Vecko's last update to TWoS fixed so much of the sky and environment stuff and combined with Reshade and my own humble files I believe the screenshots I posted show that this game now is comparable with any other modern graphics game:

I originaly posted about it here in this thread because I mainly made my mods for use with the Wolves of Steel.They are only graphics and HDR filters so they do not affect gameplay other than to add Immersion factor. And let's face it, this game without the Wolves or Sober's great work ,or your own for that matter is basicaly a broken mess. I am simply standing on the shoulders of giants like yourself and all the other great modders for this game, and trying to improve a few things and refusing to let this game die and go away as have so many other games many of us have spent decades of our lives with.

@ boogieman

Thank you for your kind praises, mate.
I am a subsim lover and a modest contributor of this community just like many other members, including you. All I know about SH games, was learned with the precious help and from the great example of other modders. I probably could have done and I stil could do more for our games... if it wasn't for my laziness and for my pedantic meticulousness (note to myself: in future try not to be such a fussy slacker lol) :D

On the other hand, your modesty makes you onor, but in my opinion there is not a thing as a "minor" mod, as even the slightest game improvement keeps other members visiting our forums, and other modders motivated to do their part.

Okay, I think I got carried away. So many words to say thank you again you for your recent release and keep up your great work! :salute:

TWoS 2.2.17
 
Hmm... I am in need of a little clarification and help with troubleshooting.

Until recently I thought that visible damage (holes after gun/torpedo hits) are only showing up on gr2 format ships. I've never seen them on .dat format ships in my game but thought it's normal. Recently though I've seen a video made with TWoS which had .dat ships (SH4 imports) showing holes after being hit, so I'm kinda confused - is visible damage on imported ships supposed to show up? And if so, what can be the cause for it not showing up in my game?

(Just to be sure, I made a fresh install of TWoS 2.2.17 which works perfectly well otherwise, but still .dat format ships don't show any visible damage after being hit)

Problem here
 
Hey lads,
installation of game and mod worked great, but as soon as i give an order to the crew (like speed 5 knots) the game crashes.

Hey Captains! Sorry for my low activity on forums these days. I've got some real-real life problems and I don't have much time for modding and subsim. Stay sharp and happy hunting. I hope you still enjoy Wolves of Steel! :salute:
