Default THEBERBSTEES All In One Beginners Mega Mod List For SH4 221117

Last updated 25th November 2017
Download links can be found at the bottom of this post.

THEBERBSTERS All In One Beginners Mega Mod for SH4 221117 <updated version.

Important Installation Instructions Must Be Read First
Did you remember to create the new folder that I mentioned in my SH4 tutorial?
No, then Exit the Zip file and copy and paste the Zip file to your New Folder.


Ok, so you have your New Folder and your Zip file download is in it.
Open the Zip file and you will see 8 items.
Click on the Extract Tab.
Follow the prompt to Extract and Exit the Zip file.
You will now see the contents of the Zip file in your New Folder along with the Zip File download.
Copy and paste the folder called MODS to your
SH4 Main Game Folder.


Installing JSGME
Copy and paste the JSGME Application to your SH4 Main Game Folder.
Open the JSGME Application and accept the prompts.
Untick the option to View online user guide.
Click on Finish to complete the installation.
Open the JSGME.exe icon.
You will now see all 17 mods disabled on the left side of JSGME.


Document Folder
Inside this folder you will find a “Readme” for each mod telling what it does in the game.


Note 1.
If you have previously been playing a modded game I recommend that you install this mega mod on a clean SH4 installation having used a Registry Cleaner.


Note 2.
If you have been playing an unmodded Stock/Vanilla Game then there is no need to re-install.


Note 3.
Large Address Aware (LAA) is an essential application for those of you who have a certain amount of spare ram.
SH4 only allows you 2gb of ram LAA allows your system to use what ram is available to your game.
By using this application stops ctd’s where without it ctd’s would undoubtedly occur in the game at some time.
Further information and instructions can be found in my SH4 Tutorials.


Note 4.
Webster’s New Orders Bar mod is no longer needed as it is included in Mod 2 MaxOptics IV for GFO 1.1.
I have included the text document from the original Webster’s New Orders Bar mod so you can see what the mod does in the game.


Note 5.
Mod 2 MaxOptics IV for GFO 1.1 includes Magnified Hud Dials for v1.5_Medium


Note 6.
There are 2 optional uprated Deck Gun versions over the stock game available in the mega mod.
8 Webster’s Uprated Deck Gun v1
8 Webster’s Uprated Deck Gun v2


Note 6.
For different bearing tool resolutions to the default Mod 14 3000 Yard Bearing Tool 1920x1080 mod go to:
Downloads
SH4
Game play
Page 6

Note 7.
Mod 16 Magnified Hud Dials for v1.5_Large is an optional choice to the default Magnified Hud Dials for v1.5_Medium included in Mod 2 MaxOptics IV for GFO 1.1.

Picture 1. > This is what is in the Download Zip File.



Picture 2. >
These are the Mods used in this Mega Mod with options showing that can be changed by you.


Picture 3. > Document Folder Mod Information Text Files you can open and read.


Mega Mod Download Link > MediaFire
THEBERBSTERS All In One Beginners Mega Mod For SH4 221117 < Latest Version

Mega Mod Download Link > Subsim
THEBERBSTERS All In One Beginners Mega Mod for SH4 221117 < Latest Version

Changes to latest version 221117
Updated installation instructions.
Updated text document readme’s.
Updated mods list.
Removed mod > Webster’s New Order Bar Menu for v1.5 as it is included in MaxOptics IV for GFO 1.1
Removed mod > Webster's Improved US Torpedo v2 as it was causing a ctd when the S18 type boat was selected.


Courtesy acknowledgement to all modders.
A special thank you to Webster.

Olde Fahrtz can order off of the Beginner's menu also, correct?...

I've always liked Webster's GFO, and you've got a much better looking mix than what I used to run. Now to find some time for this...

Thank you, THEBERBSTER

Hi pb
Just gives any newcomer an easy option into modding rather than Stock.
GFO very under rated IMO and a joy to play.
Thanks.

GFO is a great mod for veteran players. I was totally shocked how much fun it is and spent a year playing that way.

Hi Niume
I have never played the German side in SH4 because I also play SH3 and SH5.
I always liked the American boats with their advanced TDC and radar and it makes a good game alternative for me to play.
Sorry.

Hi Niume
I would not bother with mods and lists the only way forward with SH4 for advanced playing is with the FOTRSU mega mod.
This is excellent work done by a dedicated group of modders and is highly recommnended as I am currently playing this as well as GFO, LSH3-2015 and SH5 TWOS.
All highly recommended versions of Silent Hunter.

And off-site mod links are mostly dead. But Subsim Download mod links are ALL alive and well. Those who relied on Medialink, 4-shared and imitators, File Planet, other hokey sites that don't cut the cheese: they're all gone. Even Carotio's Silent Hunter Mod site is gone. Kickinback, where TMO, RFB, OM and RSRDC were developed is gone. Only Subsim is a safe place for your mod.

Every single SH4 mod ever put on Subsim is a good healthy link and will be for a long time. Nuff said! Thanks Neal.

Cough, cough, cough!!!

See link below. Still alive and kicking with mods still being added. All game versions 3,4, & 5 supported.

As a side note, Neal now has these mods roughly up to june or mid-july, [see update log for latest files] in his hands on an external USB drive to upload to SUBSIM.

Just to let you know, kind wonderful sir THEBERBSTER, you have put together an exemplary package with this. Full of options with clear, concise instructions. Something we hope to get close to with the FotRSU mod implementation. Excellent job, and I am having a wonderful time using it as a diversion, along with my recent OM install. It's even more fun your way than what I used to have! Again THEBERBSTER, excellent job, sir! I cannot recommend this high enough, and not just for the beginner, but for all SH4 players. Webster should take another bow for his mods!

Hi pb
Thank you for your kind words.
As has previously been said Webster's GFO is very underatted and deserves better recognition.
In my own way I have tried to do it justice buy complimenting additional mods, many of his, and turning into a larger mega mod for all to play.

The instructions to me are always an important element as you have to take a view that the player may have no, or little knowledge but still wants to play your game.

I have pitched it purposely at the beginner rather than an intermediate or higher level player this because I believe FOTRSU is the Ultimate game for SH4.

Like you said pb it makes a good diversion even for us veteran players as a nice alternative.

To Webster.
Peter

If GFO were the only supermod for SH4 we'd all be very happy. It is the purest embodiment of the original game developers' vision of how Silent Hunter 4 should play. It's magnificent.

Hi RR
Totally agree with you.

What is amazing considering its age is it has stood the test of time and is still going strong.
I have played many different versions of GFO over the years with optional added mods that Webster shows in his very informative text documents.
The list of mods I have put together in the Mega Mod however remains my favorite and I am pleased to be able to show it to newcomers rather than they take the stock route.
The key of course has to be good informative information that can be easily understood by anyone.
Peter

Hey mods, can we get this thread stickied? What could be more important to the future of the game than giving a clear blueprint for success to newbies?

3 out of 4 doctors recommend Peter's thread for relief of pain and frustration caused by the steep learning curve of Silent Hunter 4.
