View Full Version : REFERENCE LIBRARY MOD possible? [concept design included]
07-09-2005, 02:12 PM
Someone asked about this possible(?) mod the other day, and it definitely is something everybody could use in one way or another. :rock:

Why not take an approach that is much easier.
Add new chapters and pages to the ships ID book and/or F1 help screen.
07-09-2005, 02:50 PM
I tried to add a speed, distance time table to the F1 help. While it was possible to make the page and make it clickable I came to a dead end when the text would only support two columns.
Your idea about the recognition manual is interesting...
So far, people have made new slidable and functional compasses and dials. I believe from scratch...
Would it be possible to "clone" the recognition manual and make a reference book to sit on the nav map screen, multiple pages etc. You could have the data entered as text, or "fix the data onto a tga" and have graphic text on each page.

Any more word on this concept???
07-16-2005, 08:08 PM
i want it so much i'l bump this . :up:
wish i could do more :88) :cry: :oops:

the concept is good, i think it can be got to work, but the people you need to ask if they want to do it, are the guys that do things like the huge clickable compass that came out recently. They seem to know how to get things working like that.

Tested in Game Crush Depths for various subs in game.
Navigational Time Tables
Useful Data Charts
Data Conversions, etc.
Celestial Navigation Charts
Other charts. depth charts, etc. Possabilities are endless if this could be modded.
Any takers? The community needs it!!!
Pls pls any and all super modders if this could come to reality it would rock :rock: :rock:

Brilliant idea! :sunny:
07-17-2005, 10:46 AM
Very good idea, we all are awaiting for that! :up:
I would sooooooooooooo use this.
07-18-2005, 01:14 PM
That would be killer!
:hmm: here's another thought...perhaps excerpts from the U-Boat Commander's Handbook could be included? Or our own version of it. But give it the same title, look, etc as the original?
07-18-2005, 03:00 PM
Is anyone actually working on this? I have heard lots of praise given to the concept of the idea, but not to any work in progress. Can I expect any mod to be produced from this idea? If not, I'm not coming back to this thread. :nope: :P
07-18-2005, 07:26 PM
Actually we revived the thread to stir intrest in to have someone modding it. Other threads talked about what was next on list so here ya go, plus as seen here there is a lot of interest. :up:
keep posting we will ware them modders down ;) (just a friendly joke)
but pls if someone with these talents could begin to take a look at it .

I would love this mod. Unfortunately, while I can work develop databases and code financial apps with no problem, I have no skills when it comes to this kind of work.
07-19-2005, 06:22 AM
I bump for that...great idee
07-19-2005, 08:10 AM

Any recent developments?
08-15-2005, 06:31 AM
Look out- bump ahead.
08-15-2005, 06:59 AM
Damn! I just hit that bump.
08-15-2005, 02:01 PM
I thought I was the only one who noticed the constellations and.....
....THE NORTH STAR!!!!!
(The front edge of the big dipper points up at it. lol I learned that in the army... land NAV..... yessss I said "the army.")
This mod idea rocks! :rock:
This is still a good idea. Has anyone done anything like this yet?
09-04-2005, 02:48 PM
This is a great idea but I've heard nothing from any of the modders indicating this is in the works. All we can do is hope and keep bumping.
Unfortunately i'm one of those guys with an over abundance if spare time and an under abundance of talent when it comes to stuff like this.
04-06-2006, 08:01 PM
So and if we crack the ID Codes, Id numbers... :rock:
Sorry mi mistake it was suposed to say this in a diferent topic... :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
I start tiping imediately, wothout watching where am i! :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
I got to make this work...
04-06-2006, 09:06 PM
wohoo so is this project underway!? A while ago some1 tried this but i dont think they ever followed up on it.
04-07-2006, 12:23 AM
Man, I hope someone is still looking into this - I would so love to see some of this stuff but most of all if this could be used to give us a calendar with moon phases and rise/set times and sunrise/sunset times like we had in either AOTD or SH2 (can't remember which - maybe both?) this would be so AWESOME :rock:
It's always chapped me about SH3 that we lost this great feature from a previous subsim - would so love to get it back.
04-07-2006, 05:38 AM
Totally agree :up:
04-07-2006, 06:19 AM
I am trying to contact Tikigod, cause i'm doing a similar project on this topic:
I understand that basicly a thing like this will not work without
Creating some new ID Numbers and crack into the game ID Numbers Codes, or we have to take something from the game like
The Recon manual, or another interactive element to use it
and make insted this one work.... :rock:
