  • The Silent Hunter Series

    So, who here owns a copy of any of the iterations of the Silent Hunter series and would be interested in Multiplayer? I know Dredge and myself play every once in a while and would like some others to join in.

    I loved playing Silent Hunter 4 but sucked at everything but the lowest difficulties.

      I own both Silent Hunter 3 and 4, but I'm only familiar with 3 (and even then, I use the GWX mod). I'm not sure about multiplayer: are there multiple players per sub, or is it limited to one sub per player? And what are the gameplay modes?

        It's one player per boat, all of the scenarios i've seen are wolfpack vs. convoy scenarios - thought i may be able to make some sub vs. sub missions.

          Somehow I doubt having a sub vs. sub mission would be particularly fun, what with almost all the torpedoes being unguided :icon_bigg
          Still, how are the Wolfpack convoy hutn missions?

              Oh come on, Dredge, don't sell yourself short: I bet you are absolutely invaluabe in providing a distraction, allowing ACOG to slip in unnoticed while the escorts are bombing you to kingdom come. :icon_bigg
              Well, I guess I'm up for some multiplayer, then: just call me on X-Fire or PM me or just say: let's play day X. ;)

                Lol, too true my friend. We should def. get something going. Its always nice to hunt with more than 1 or 2 subs.

                  Sounds good. I'll just need to know what version we are using and if we are also using any mods. Also I'll need to set up my game, but I don't think it will be that hard. :D

                    Right now for SH5 i'm not using any mods until a supermod (ala GWX) comes out. Same with Dredge.

                      Ah, then I don't think we'll be able to play, unfortunately: I'm kinda boycotting Ubisoft and I have not bought Silent Hunter 5 yet (and don't think I ever will, unless someone can reverse the lobotomy Ubi exec gave themselves).

                        I'm in that boat with you Merula. SH5 looked awesome but no way I'm buying it with that DRM.

                          I prefer the scenario of SH3 but can't stand it as a sim. Babysit-the-crew is not a fun simulation. At least SH4 got the concept of watches done right. But, of course, the scenarios in SH4 don't appeal to me. Probably because I picked a pre-war sub my first career thinking I could upgrade as quickly as I could in SH3. Crawling around the Pacific at 1/3rd so as to conserve fuel is horrible.

                            Well, I have 4 and the expansion owned on Steam (would just need to re download them), and am up for some games if anyone wants to. Just toss me a PM and I can give you some ways to get in touch.

                              Ive got 3 and 4. Would like to play online as 3 stopped working over hamachi for me and my mate for no reason. Anyone have this problem?

I turned around and fired a torpedo from the surface straight into it. How I lol'd
