My first mission out of Manilla. December 10th 1941. USS Seadragon.

My orders are to carry a group of special forces from Manilla, to the other side of the mainland. "Strange," I thought to myself...."Why don't they just take a land vehicle?" We found out after just a few short hours of traveling up the coast. Radio messages starting flying in about a Japanese invasion of the Philippines. "Sir, multiple Radar contacts!" I thought to myself...This is it. This could be an invasion task force.

Sure enough...A screen of about 8 cruisers and destroyers was escorting 6 troop transports from the Chinese mainland to partake the invasion of the Philippines. DAMN...Only 4 fish up front on this pig...It'l have to do. I lay into those troop transports with all 4 fish...
Nothing but fire and twisting bulkheads.
I know those escorts will be on top of me in just seconds. I turn 180 and loose 4 more fish. HITS. Thousands of Jap soldiers hit the seabed before they can fire a single shot. Diving deep, we slip away from the chaos of the frantic searching and depth charging....

The lieutenant leading the special forces is getting restless...Better drop him off soon and return to the fight....

I just finished my first complete patrol in SH4. In defense of the Philipines, USS Sculpin, was ordered to patrol the Celebes Sea (oddly enough, the same area where my grandfather was shot down and beheaded in 1944.) After a week without contacts, I moved farther south and into a terrible storm. Just as we were about to submerge, I noticed some lights through the storm. At about the same time an Akizuki came out of the mist aft of us. A snapshot blew her in half, and she promptly rolled over and sank. Thinking that I had encountered a convoy, we charged ahead at flank looking for merchants. Instead we ended up with 72,50o tons of warships, 1 Hiryu class fleet carrier, 1 Shokaku class fleet carrier, 2 Mogami class heavy cruisers, and 2 DD's. Not bad for a first patrol. (On a side note I will have to hand it to Ubi. The graphics are fantastic, and I for one am really enjoying this one despite the problems. I will still keep SH III on the drive, but I will be playing Wolves of the Pacific more.)

Maximum image size 1024x786, JPG format only.

Resizing images

If you need to resize a screenshot because it´s larger than 1024x786 you can use Irfanview, it´s free:

Open the image with Irfanview, go to Image -> Resize/Resample, under Size method select Resample, then type in the new size in Set new size, after that click Ok.

To save it go to File -> Save as, set Save as type to JPG, tick Show Options dialog and set Save quality to 85. Then save the image.

Alternative method

If you already have a JPG, Imageshack can resize it for you. On Imageshack.us click resize image? and select 1024x786, then upload the image.

Uploading images

Quoting (as suggested by Safekeeper and addedd by Drebbel)

Just some back-seat moderation, if I may: Could everyone be so kind as to not quote posts containing pictures? It clutters up the thread and makes it take longer to load.

Happened upon this one in a convoy. Sorry to say I did not sink it or anything for that matter. Only two torps and bad calculation=no sinking.





These guys milling about like they are on a 2 week cruise

Messing with various files to try and increase graphics I decided to do this... seems like ramming doesn't work as well in SH4; I rammed that cruiser about 3 times.... :rotfl:

Thanks for posting. We should have an artwork competition....
