Icon7 New to SHIII: Which mega mod to choose?

Hi guys,
Today I will buy SHIII (I played through all of SHIV and some of SHV before), and tomorrow I want to start my career.
As far as I know, this game near-enough needs a mega mod to unleash its potential and eradicate its bugs. The question may have been discussed to death, and I found some information, especially this page was rather helpful: http://www.donitzeliteflotilla.com/f...php?topic=54.0
But I'd love to get a second opinion. I'm not the greatest captain and not entirely focused on perfect realism (contact updates and automatic targeting is usually what I roll with), I should add. Which mod should I choose? Why?
Thank you.

Best,
Brett

Thats pretty hard to say.

A lot of people still use GWX (Grey Wolves Expansion). But you would need to install alot of additional mods to get it to a "modern" SH3 standard. It has a bit of "all" from the other megamods and is a great balance. I guess thats why most people still use this one.

If you need a good all in one package which is also beginner friendly I would recommend LSH3 (Living Silent Hunter 3 http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=220285). It has a lot of new ships and also has widescreen GUIs.

If you like eye candy and seeing and "participating" in historical events I would go with WAC 5 (http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=233626).

If you want to be hardcore and play with a very good enemy AI but with less eye candy you should go with NYGM (http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=139231).



All in all its up to personal taste and if you should try them all to see what fits your taste the best.



Here is also a short summary of the different megamods. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfil.../?id=315056037

Thank you both!
I will start with LSH then. It appears to be closest to my wishes, and your tutorial is quite simply lovely.
Does it include the - moderately useful - Typ XXIII?

Best,
Brett

Hi BS
The type 23 is listed in the Main mods Submarine folder so I guess that is a yes.

Thank you!
Skimming over the mod description, I couldn't find it, so it's great that this little sub is in the game as well.

Best,
Brett
