You'll see it very briefly when opening up the captain's log in either office.
Aye, I knew it was somewhere in the logbook, but never got a glimpse of it. But, I claim this as an easter egg! Now, give me my cookie!

The radar smileys are in the stock game.

But don't worry; it's cool that you pointed them out again.

An easter egg in this context is something placed into the game by its makers that shouldn't be there. In SH3 there was a submarine under construction in the home ports, and underneath it were a couple of equipment crates with the logo of the band U-2 on them. In SH4 there are...well, that's what this thread is about.

You find them in almost every game, and it's a game in itself just to spot them and point them out to other players.

If you have a DVD of Star Wars Episode II (I think it is), when the ships are descending to the planet for the big battle if you freeze-frame it, through the window of one of the ships you can see the pilot is Homer Simpson. That's an easter egg.

That they didn't put Homer Simpsons name in the crew list of SH4 is unforgivable. :p :rotfl:

HarHar... nice joke... but why Ubi didn't have done like they had promised ?:rotfl:

Did someone else found other eggs ?
Way necro, but this is a sticky. Anyway, that's talking about Herr Oesten, the guy they got to help design SH III. You can see some of the videos with him here:
