Unlike some installers? There are no pre-condition checks in the Installer of some Mega Mods.
GWX 3 is one that does this pre-istalled check.
However.
GWX 3 DOES have a Backdoor that allows me to extract all the files to an empty folder.

Coming back to playing SH again after ages please allow me to ask some questions:
Is TWoS THE megamod or are there others to consider too?
And should I pack any mod on top of SH5+TWoS?

Thanks, impressive list!

Was toying around a bit trying enigma, what a workload! I need one of the ladies in their Wehrmachts gray.
Now a little problem, deciphered the message and send it to shiplog, but there it is also only encrypted.
Is the decrypted message save somewhere, or do I lose it when decrypting the next?

Gents,
I decided to come back to Silent Hunter 5 after 6 years. I installed the mod with no problems, but there are two thing that makes me not 100% happy of the playing. Both of them happen in the same historical mission "The new merchant fleet":

1. There is no damage on the vessel after the torpedo hits. "3D ship damage" option either ON/OFF doesn't help. As I understand, this models were imported in the game by modders (so should be some limitations), but at least 2D damage should work, right? Strangly enough, in the mission where "stock" ships are used, only 3D damage works. If I switch it OFF, no damage is shown at all.

2. The smokes (both from the ship engines and fires due to damage) disappear at some distances, when the external camera is used. And in weird way: when you are close to the ships, you can see the smokes, you are getting far away they disappear suddenly, but if you continue to move away they start being rendered again. The "no-render" distance is very narrow actually, no reason for that. So it is definitely a bug. I have all graphical settings on Max. The video of the bug "in action":

Stock models as well as Rosomaha's C3 and my coasters use different 3d format (.gr2) than most of imported models which use .dat format of previous Silent Huner games. Only .gr2 format supports 3D damage and only .dat format supports 2D damage sprites, which is why you will see either one or another. Furthermore, damage does not always appear (that is true both for 2D and 3D damage.)

Interesting. I haven't noticed this before. From your video it is for both .dat and .gr2 ships so probably not ship LOD issue, but something with smoke effect itself, but other than that - no idea what causes it.

I'm done yesterday a test of this behavior in the campaign (August 1943) where I have a convoy with more as 30 ship + 8 or 10 escort ship in front of me and I do not have this issue/bug with the smoke.

Trivia Question
 
Is there a way to stop to bob and weave we get during the exterior view of the boat? I don't mind the rocking and such when I'm on it but when viewing from afar I'd rather I wasn't flying all around the sky during storms.

Hello! I can't find these modifications anywhere on SUBSIM that I see in your post

After installing TWoS, my game starts with a training mission, although I know that this should not happen. Which files are responsible for this? What did I do wrong? :hmmm:

Did you make sure to go into the SH5.exe's properties & un tag it as "read only"... :hmmm:

Is it installed?
 
I have downloaded the TWoS mod and update ran both exe's selected the mods I wanted installed. Is there any visual difference when TWoS is installed I see absolutely nothing different.

Greetings Captains, it's been a while! :salute:
First, I have to apologize for my absence here on Subsim, lot of stuff happen during the past year for me, both good and bad, so I really couldn't spare much time for modding and answering your questions. My PC is also quite old now and until I replace it my internet access is mostly reduced to my phone, which isn't the best thing for modding and forums, you'll have to agree. :) However, I've managed to squeeze in few hours and fix some errors I stumbled upon couple of months ago.
I'm really glad to see that The Wolves of Steel community is still very much alive and active!:Kaleun_Salute:
So here is a small update for you guys...
No Campaign restart is necessary.

Download The Wolves of Steel v2.2.xx to 2.2.25 update

v2.2.25 Changelog
- Crew dialog scripts fix in Turning Point campaign chapter.
- Few minor tweaks and fixes.
- A huge thanks for outstanding TWoS supporters/donors who have supported this mod during the past year/ added to TWoS ingame credits page: John Cudmore, Constantin Homatyano, Erik Maarleveld, Michael Esquivel, Francois Coussement, Joshua McWilliam, Robert Frantz, James Tipton, Samu "yagura" Rahkila, Jorge Sanchez, Maurizio "Torpedo" Cattaneo, Lasse Pesu and Evert-Jan Bos! Thank you very much Captains and happy hunting!



Download links for v2.2.25 full standalone installer can be found in my signature.

All the best and happy hunting Captains!
