Any ideas when 2.25 is coming out.
 
Hi there does anyone know anything about 2.25

Dominatus 06-29-2022 08:11 AM

Once again I find myself setting sail on another new campaign. Once again I want to thank all the various contributors to TWOS for their hard work.

After many, many years of gaming this is the once game that I always end up coming back to time and again. I may take breaks of years in between campaigns, but TWOS never gets old for me, in the same way as SH3 modded before it.

It's amazing to me how this mod stands up to the test of time against all the new shiny, flashy games that I download, play, and then get bored with. If only Ubi had the foresight to embrace this mod and those like it wholeheartedly and officially, then perhaps their official games wouldn't die off so quickly.

Fair winds everyone... :Kaleun_Cheers:

Hi, i don't know if you heard this, but on Czech game magazine, there is an article about list of deprecated Ubisoft games which will loose online support and it says, Silent Hunter 5 will not be available to install officially (probably even from Steam).

Always keep your illegal ISOs.

Why are ships displayed half underwater?

This is in external view?

Game world is actually flat, not round - it "pretends" to be round by lowering objects that are far away so that they appear to be hidden behind Earth's curvature. This looks realistic from submarine conning tower which is positioned low so you don't see the "cheat" but if you move camera higher it becomes obvious.

External, from bridge. But other ship close to them is looking fine.

I think this is a try of fata morgana inferior effect on sea.

Deckgun and flakgun ammo are spent only when you shoot yourself. Is it okay?

Continue talking about "half-sinking ships on horizon", there is another bug reports:

Maybe it is because im using "fixed" exe version?

Options File Viewer
 
Hi


I recently installed TWoS and it works fine but the options file viewer is empty. I'm using Windows 10. Any ideas why?


Thanks
Jason

"electric engine only"
 
One of the propulsion commands you can give the chief engineer is "electric engine only" which presumable forces the electric engines to run on the surface. However, one I click on this, nothing happens. Is it broken or am I missing something?

Please help
 
Recently got a new computer and decided to install SH5 from Ubisoft (not available from Steam)
I have been trying to get TwoS to work for days with no luck I thought that I had read all there was on the subject and was about to give up when I as a last resort I fell upon this thread.
Is there now a work around to getting TWoS and the patcher working, If there is could some kind subsimmer point me in the right direction.

Thanks Terry

Try this fix from Peter THEBERBSTER out, and see if it can still do the trick:

Ubisoft uses UConnect now instead of UPlay, but the principal is still the same.
