May 1943, Biscaye bay...excellent job with the planes!
From Brest or St Nazaire, crossing Biscaye Bay is challenging :up:
Even at night.
As far as i play no more than X256 though. More than X256, almost all planes are skipped...(at least on my computer - known SH3 issue)

Greetings everyone!First of all, I want to offer my sincere congratulations to the creators of the mod. You guys are amazing! This mega modification works very well on my old laptop Samsung RC530. However, I would like to ask you why at periscope depth, destroyers are not able to track me, they do not ping at all. In 1944, it seems to me that such a situation should not occur. Being at periscope depth, I am practically invisible

2 first easy fix with notepad++

- In LSH3 Commander/Cfg/Randomised Events, delete the whole section about thermal layer...it is screwing up AI sensors, becoming almost deaf.

- In Data/Campaigns/Campaign/SCR & RND file, change all crew rating =1 & =2 to =3...
Don’t worry, with Notepad++ it is doable in 15 seconds...if you know how to use it.

Then, you would have to make some changes in Data/Library/Ai Sensors.dat using S3D application.
Opening all Sonars nodes and Hydrophone node, and changing their max heigh to -10 (instead of -15 so they can detect you at periscope depth) or even to 0!

Reducing the noise factor to 0.2 of hydrophone and Sonar in Cfg/Sim file helps also.

There are plenty ways to make LSH3 more challenging in my opinion.
I did it for myself, and result i have never passed 1943...often destroyed by planes when playing no more than X256.

LSH3_2020 SH3 Validator errors
 
Urmel and the LSH3_2020 Team,

You folks have done amazing work on the LSH3_2020 and everything seems to work. :salute: Really looks great. :yeah:

But, when I am in a career mode I get CTD for no apparent reasons and in looking for a possible source, I came across this in SH3 Validator :


Roster errors:
Unrecognized unit type of Belgium found in C:\Silent Hunter III LSH3-2020-CAREER\data\Roster\Environmental
Unrecognized unit type of Denmark found in C:\Silent Hunter III LSH3-2020-CAREER\data\Roster\Environmental
Unrecognized unit type of France found in C:\Silent Hunter III LSH3-2020-CAREER\data\Roster\Environmental
Unrecognized unit type of FreeFrench found in C:\Silent Hunter III LSH3-2020-CAREER\data\Roster\Environmental
Unrecognized unit type of Greece found in C:\Silent Hunter III LSH3-2020-CAREER\data\Roster\Environmental
Unrecognized unit type of Italian found in C:\Silent Hunter III LSH3-2020-CAREER\data\Roster\Environmental
Unrecognized unit type of Netherland found in C:\Silent Hunter III LSH3-2020-CAREER\data\Roster\Environmental
Unrecognized unit type of Norway found in C:\Silent Hunter III LSH3-2020-CAREER\data\Roster\Environmental
Unrecognized unit type of Sweden found in C:\Silent Hunter III LSH3-2020-CAREER\data\Roster\Environmental



Not sure if these are the cause, but thought would share these possible issues with the roster. I am not sure or savvy enough to fix these errors so I thought you may need to look at these.

I am still working on trying to locate any other possible issues as the cause of the CTDs.

Good hunting,
FUBAR295

Problems loading LSH3-2020
 
I have returned to try to install LSH3-2020, but find I cannot.
I have downloaded : LSH3-2020-Full and LSH3-2020-Installation files

1.The 'Full' file seems to be a 7z compressed file that I cannot open. I have used 7z for years but have never encrypted anything so there is no password that will permit me to open the '2020-Full' file. I tried 7z Help to set up a 'new' password but that results in an 'Access denied' msg.

2. The 'Installation' file seems to 'extract' 100%, gives me a 'LSH3-2020-Multinstallation.exe Access denied' msg. When I try to run the Ubisoft/Silent Hunter 3 file to run LSHS, it opens with a screen that refers to LSH3-2015 (?) seems to load and then blacks out. LSH3-2015 does not exist on my computer

I can find no independent LSH3 program files loaded anywhere on the drive that would open and run LSH3 , nor can I find any LSH icon or *.exe file for the actual game...so I have assumed that LSH3 modifies the Ubisoft/Silent Hunter 3 files and opens and runs from there. Most frustrating.

Maybe there is a different forum for problems like this, if so, my apologies and please redirect me.

Dear old Member "Archive1

Thank you for your detailed analysis on the "LSH3-EDITION-2020" files.

Basically the supermod "LSH3-EDITION-2020" consists only of official Ubisoft SH3 files and SH3 patch files officially accepted by Ubisoft.

- About 90% of all SH3 image files have been replaced/created by LSH3.
- About 70% of the original SH3 programming files have been reworked/rebuilt by LSH3.

Supermod "LSH3-2020" is a "freeware supermod", 100% legally created and worked out for the whole world for free!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Technical questions to be able to play "LSH3-EDITION-2020":

1. download the supermod "LSH3-EDITION-2020", at www.lsh3.com
Start download: https://www.lsh3.com/v20/dl/LSH3-2020-INSTALLATION.EXE

2. after downloading, start the downloaded file "LSH3-2020-INSTALLATION.EXE".
and follow the instructions.

3. after the first installation, another installation can be carried out at any time.
The file for this is called "LSH3-2020-MULTIINSTALLATION.EXE".

4. no other programme (z7) is needed for "LSH3-EDITION-2020"!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Dear Archive1, thank you for your statement.

Right here/Subsim it is important that we have clarified this "user issue" - thank you!

I am open for new and further questions 😊

Thanks Urmel and Fifi! What a beutiful setup! Silent Hunter 3 is like GPL(grand Prix legends, papyrus) It just get better and better every year. Nice work guys, thanks again.

Herr Urmel:
Thank y0u for the extended reply. Unfortunately my success was nil.
I downloaded the LSH3-2020-INSTALLATION.EXE and copied it to (let us say) my E: drive (a fast digital drive) in a folder labelled LSH3 in a drive that contains the original Ubisoft/Silent Hunter 3 program.
When I open it I get 4 files (2 of which are the EN/DE pdf files):
1 is the 7z LSH3-2020-FULL

One is the 7z LSH3-2020-FULL and the second is LSH3-2020-INSTALLATIION file

When I select the INSTALLATION file it seems to extract and I get the Error loading the multigames msg I have described before.

When I then click on the SH3 icon to open the program I find the MODS and JSGME folders are empty and when I click on the SH3.exe icon to run the program I get a black screen, a moving pink ribbon loading line, another black empty screen and a crash back to the desktop.

This is exactly what I have had before. And now the Silent Hunter 3 original program that actually did run, no longer works.

So now, I have no LSH3 and no (old but viable) Silent Hunter 3.

Sorry, but this isn't progress but a retreat.
Cordially,
Archive1
