Another long-time SH3 player here. I played the original Silent Hunter back in 1998 (along with Red Baron II), and have played every one since. SH3 is my personal favorite just because of the amount of modding that has been done. SH4 has better graphics and better gameplay, but it came just two years after SH3 and has not had nearly the modding attention the earlier incarnation received. That said, it's the only decent sim for the American submarine service in WW2. One of Subsim's members has been working on a WW1 u-boat conversion for years now.


Some people are born stupid. I've had to work hard my whole life to get this way. I'm proud of the job I've done

Garfield Lynns of 54 RAF has already spent 41 days of his 51 day career in hospital. I hate Camels.
Konstantin Smirnov in SPA 57 is doing much better in his SPAD XIII.

I was flying in Jasta 36 for a pretty long time and just got a Fokker D-VIII. On the third mission my guy had a mid air with a French Breguet two seater and that was it! Now I have to start a new campaign but haven't decided which service.

Hate Camels?!? Hard to imagine sir.
Every time I do one (Fall of 1917) I am like Death on Wings with my twin Vickers.
Fall of 1918 may be another story though...

Duke, Garfield “Bullet Magnet” Lynns hates his machine. If he were a quitter he’d already have transferred to a squadron flying S.E. 5’s. He earned his first trip to the hospital after a landing “accident”. His next trip was earned after he flew into his own bomb blast during an airfield attack and the latest trip to the local hospital was a result of the engine quitting right after he picked up two Fokker D.VII’s on his tail. And the nurses aren’t that pretty either.

Yes. Never faced off with a DVII in a Camel.
The title “Death on Wings” may be premature.

I have better luck in a Camel against D-VIIs than if in a D-VII against Camels. I know I'm 'against the grain' on this one but I don't like D-VIIs unless it's the BMW version. My newest guy is flying DH-5s in 24.

DH5! Another bold pilot!
I have yet to fly a DVII as hard as that is (for me anyway) to believe.
Always have one rolled up but....blessed retirement can’t come soon enough.

Camel Jockey!! December 1917. Bloody damn cold even at 5000 feet what!! Just standard line patrols at the moment until CO sends me over the top! Apparently wants me for team leading exercises leading flights of 5 Camels in A flight. Apparently likes the look of me, although I only have 9 hours flight time on Camels and 2 sorties to boot since arriving in Flanders. Apparently, the CO knows my old man back in Blighty and is keeping a close eye on me. Don't like it myself as I want to be able to prove myself a worthy pilot for the sake of the other fellows in my squadron. We''ll have to see what happens. Tally Ho!!

Camels are a fun plane to fly. What squadron?

I'm currently slowly moving through March 1916 with an Airco DH.2 and RFC 24 (Hawker's squadron.) Since I'm trying to wean myself off time compression again, I'm not going very quickly (haha), but just enjoying the scenery and the occasional Eindecker. No kills yet. Last flight my wingman decided to get into a fight without me. He and I had words when we got back!

Unfortunately, for me, TC is a necessary evil.
Wish I had enough time to fly a mission at normal speed. Usually TC the form-up and climb to altitude plus, for the Allies, the trip to the front. Some of the squads are really in the rear!

Oh I still use TC for getting to the front, or when I have a long way to go home and don't expect anything to happen. I use Ctrl+W to get past the climb to altitude as well - I find the AI and we are perfectly capable of climbing en route.

On a side note, I spent the evening downloading and installing a LOT of mods. That last mission felt like I was playing a whole new game. All our great modders have my highest respect and gratitude!

The modders have certainly done awesome work for this game with tweaks here and there.
God bless the lot of them.

Thanks DukeIronHand! S! The DH-5 can roll well. That's about its only attribute... roll one way or t'other while pulling 'up' elevator to get away from those pesky Albi!!! The full scale version was supposed to be able to dive like a brick but that isn't true in the SIM. I love flying crummy aircraft like the DH-5 and Pfalz and surviving!

I had a 1 Squadron career going in 1918 too. Se5’s. What a great plane.
All this talk has me itching to play.

after a four year hiatus I'm finally playing the game again. my old computer could just BARELY handle the Hat in the Ring on all of the lowest settings. it got to be so time consuming that I just stopped playing it because it took forever to load basic missions. I figured I would wait it out and get a nice machine later. I can crank everything up to the highest settings and have pretty smooth gameplay now on WOFF UE. just doing basic turkey shoots (Camels shooting down Aviatik B.Is and so on to get used to things).

I'm impressed by how easy it is to shoot down zeppelins... once you finally reach them.

I'm glad that the French player has a larger variety of names for his squad mates! it used to be that you would have the same twelve last names used over and over again! sometimes having two or three randomly generated AI wingmen with the same name!

the mod has really come a long way.

I hope to enjoy/squander hundreds of hours on this nifty mod.

I do miss the outrageous volume of aircraft that we saw in RB3d... but for the actual experience of flying missions this is a huge improvement.

thanks to the development team for all of those years of hard work.

Apart from the Centenary DiD career, I've just started a career with J11 starting in April 1917....giving myself an easy ride, seeing as I'm new wink
