It's a pretty neat compilation of playable surface ships! While I was a bit disappointed that type of ship you select in the campaign doesn't reflect on what kind of orders you were given, the upgrades for some of the "non-combat" vessels more than make up for it. After all, who wouldn't want to stare down a convoy, Captaining a Liberty ship armed with a Mk6 16" turret? Sure, you wouldn't be smiling too much when the escorts arrive and poke you full of holes, but it's certainly goofy fun while it lasts.

Overall, just some grade A fun. My only suggestion is; In the future, could an option be given for cargo ships be given supply/transport orders a little more often than combat?

In my opinion this could have been much better if you did all battleships and cruisers separately. Cause all these in one pack causes the gun textures to look glitched out and it may cause crashing for allot of people as well. I still love your work though! You're the first to do such a thing to this game. Thank you benji!: Kaleun_Applaud:

the damage models on these ships are non-functional - if they are, damage isn't properly detected on them, making these ships functionally useless.

shouldn't be able to tank depth charges from aircraft and take 0 damage on an unmodified career.

Congratulations on this Mod. I usually play SH4 and I always appreciate the news, but if these allow me to play with different models of the usual submarine.
I have not tried all the models but some I find them more suitable to use in the game than others, the battleships, cruisers and destroyers fit very well in the missions, I have even in the race (as long as you do not have to do a photographic recognition, impossible action for a ship if I can't press the camera) and I liked the variety of small ships such as the Japanese cannons or the Black Swan or Subchaser, ships to reinvent missions in islands or river mouths for example.
I would only dare to ask for a little more effort after six months of work and it would be the possibility of increasing the number of torpedoes in the units (there is a large majority that only have two) both in the firing device (2 or 4 better than 1) as in the storage slots. I don't know how complicated this is to solve.
And another wish would be the possibility of creating a freighter (it could be a Japanese merchant unit of those that already appear in the mod) with more naval and anti-aircraft armament and transporting mines instead of torpedoes to recreate German raiders in Indian waters or off the Australian coast. There is already some mod in subsim but it is not very playable.

Thank you for your time and make more fun a game already fantastic.

very nice work well done...one thing...at the german side there a lot of ships you can add like bismarck yamato fuso kongo and graf spee
Benjamin2557
02-03-2020 at 04:45 PM
"bismarck yamato fuso kongo and graf spee" aren't on the pack simply because they all are already available as playable ships. I made his megamod for the ships which weren't playable in the game.
If you are looking for these, I'll share my ENTIRE Mods folder soon by creating a topic for that. I still don't know when but I'll make it, for sure

the AAs on some ships aren't working, i mean, i detect the plane only when it's directly above me. then AAs ignore everything. and guns don't fire if i don't manually mark a target. but aside of that, this mod is great

This is... without a doubt... the greatest playable ship mod of all time!! Dozens of ships, for all sides! Anything from a Battleship to a Fishing Trawler! AND IT WORKS!

I've spent days looking for specific ships I wanted, because after years of playing the game as it is, I still love the game, but I got sick of playing as a submarine. Boy, this turns the tables! Now I get to be as powerful as I want to be, on the other side of the water! I can't thank you enough for this mod!!
