Default The Noob Modders Task Force.

This thread is to announce the creation of a new modding group for Silent Hunter 4 known as the Noob Modders Task Force or NMTF for short. The goal of the group is for those with limited to no modding experience to share our experiences of learning how to mod modding, help each other out when we get stuck, help future modders out by creating a guide for the stuff we learn(something sorely needed) and creating mods together with the ultimate goal being the creation of our own super-mod(but that'd be a bit down the line) and having fun. If you're interested in joining please state so below.

Thanks as I was worried about it. What do you think of the name for the group? Keep it or change it?

I thought I'd give this a little boost. We'll see how it goes.

Where are the ambient and surface ship sounds stored for the sonar station if your manning it yourself? Are the sound files wavs? What format are they in and can Audacity be used to edit them. I have an idea for a sound mod for the sonar.

This is a question for the american side and the german side. Just in case they are different. Cause I do not know ... and I'm a non-modder.

Nonmodder ... I hope the other kids don't make fun at me at school.

Is there a maximum sound clip length for the ambient wav files?

Don't know on question 1 yet.

Sound files are wavs.

Again don't know yet on both.

I'm pretty sure they're the same for both sides.

Don't know yet but pretty sure there is.

This is a good idea.

I will certainly contribute, if I can.

GWX 3 uses a 26.6 MB wav file for ambient Sub interior sound in SH3.
I'd think SH4 would be OK with large files also.

Best way to know for sure is place a large file in-Game and see if it crashes.
