:up: Great logos...I really like the "Iron Wolves" one.
Personally, I'll like to see it with the subtitle phrase "You're the hunter...they're the prey" and, if I may suggest, you could use it for the :D possible release of the "magui" interface version of the supermod?:yeah:

I'm not sure about this, this is exactly the reason why I've decided not to go with "The Iron Wolves" designation. I also have thoughts for "The Steel Wolves" but is sounds to much like Steel Beast... :)

How about to add some old camera effects to periscope view ?

Okay, I will keep updating the three of them until we decide which one is better suited for Vecko's megamod :up:

In my opinion your phrase is better suited for the logo n. 3 :hmm2:

The Steel Wolves sounds very good to me :yep:

Good idea :up:
I will add some chromatic aberration to it. What about the font and the plate texture? Which one do you prefer? Those are freely interchangeable.

CTD
 
VDR 1981
Just a heads up (Not a Complaint.) Tried WOS V1 and was getting ctd's every once in awhile. Not often enough to be a real problem. Seemed to happen when I would open the map or change views nothing consistent. Don't know what was causing it.
I Really like the mod
I loaded up V 2, your instructions for both Versions are great.
V 2 crashed every time I attempted to submerge. I think it was a depth change problem. I added your mod setup several at a time and tested after each change until I found what appears to be causing the CTD

When I removed EMCCD v0.3.1 by archer 9 the problem disappeared.
Maybe this information will help.

Huh, that sounds like a lot of work...

So your game CTD when you try to submerge? Which command? Command menu from first officer or via panel from the left side of the screen?

Could you tell me exactly what should I do in order to replicate that CTD?

CTD
 
I probably am not going to be much help here but: I followed your V2 mod list exactly. Ran the sim. When I attempted to submerge I clicked on the icon, left side of screen. The boat took a little time to begin to submerge the depth bouncing between 5 and 6 meters. When the boat began to submerge, and the depth reache 7-8 meters the sim CTD. I tried it with a historic mission where the boat began the mission submerged, I tried to surface using the surface icon on left side of screen and when the boat began to surface I CTD, I believe EMCCD v0.3.1 has to do with sounds. I really do not have enough background in modding to make sense out of it other than I removed the mod and all seems well.

WOS V1 crashes where not often enough or constant to make any sense.
I am running a Win 8.1 Desktop: I7 3770 @3.4 GH, 16 GB Ram,AMD Radeon HD 7800 Graphics card with 2 GH mem.
Wish I could be of more help

Logo proposal #4
 
This is a variation of logo #3, with the following changes:
  • Shortened the mod name to "The Steel Wolves", as originally intended by Vecko.
  • Changed the subtitle phrase to "you're the hunter they are the prey", as suggested by ZAGOR64BZ.
  • Applied a slight "old photo" effect to the periscope view. Let me know if it is enough.
  • Minor modifications to the metal plate (brushed metal texture more visible through salt and seaweed incrustations).
  • Switched to the Postdam font (from logo #2), for better readability.

Very strange ended...So far I haven't managed to reproduce nothing similar.
If I've understood you correctly you are now using modlist based on TWoS 1.01 but without EMCCD v0.3.1, right?

I will watch it :up:
do you have any better idea in the meanwhile?

vdr1981 02-16-14 12:04 PM

"The Sea Wolves" is my favorite from the beagining but it is also widely used term...:hmm2:

You don't have to watch entire video, just few seconds when you click the link, what Kretschmer heard in the train...

Yep, I saw it: "U-boats" and, after a few secods, "The Sea Wolves". I will create a version of the 4th emblem with that name.

My favorite is still "The Steel Wolves" though. I also liked "The Iron Wolves", for its association with the Iron Cross, but there is really no reason to swithc to that name unless we finally select the iron cross emblem as mod's logo :yep:

vdr1981 02-16-14 12:24 PM

Whay about "attack, tear, sink" slogan?:cool:

For symmetry reasons, I would need for a fourth verb (two to the left and two to the right of the periscope sight). Unless we switch to the 1st logo, for which your slogan is better suited due to the presence of claw tears on it :03:

This is better suited for the periscope logo imo ("hunt" and "kill2 are relatively short compared with "survive", and I can group the on the left of the sight, while the latter would stand alone on the right). ;)

Looking it all over: How about a straight-forward "DIE STAHL WULF"( wolf pluralized or not?) with no 'of' about it... a little on the order of "I am Iron Man"; harder hitting, as opposed to "a man of Iron"; the 'A' in 'STAHL' should center over the periscope logo for symmetry. Nice tighter three-word title as direct as...DAS BOOT... almost! :yeah: love the all-gothic script...especially the small 's'!
