Info on Downloads, Bonus Mods, Avatars, Signatures, multiple accounts
Downloads, Bonus Mods, and Daily Download Limit

If you have received a message Sorry! You have exceeded your daily allowed download amount it is because one of two things:

You have hit download limit for the day. We have a limit because with hundreds of members downloading every day, it can get pretty expensive for us. Look to the top right of the forum, see those names? Those are the guys who recently donated to keep Subsim rolling.

You can donate a small sum here and instantly have access to 25, 60, even 100 downloads a day! Plus get the Bonus Mods and choose your custom avatar.
Your donation goes to pay for the server at Softlayer. A website this big uses a lot of bandwidth and needs a really powerful server to stay online day after day, for 15 years. Thanks for the support!


If you have been a member a long time, and you've never posted or have not posted in a long time, your account may be in Limbo. Solution: make a post somewhere in the forum. This post will be placed in the moderation que, and after 24 hours or less the forum will automatically enable downloads for you again. We have to do this to prevent spammers from joining, waiting a few months and then bombarding the forum with ads for Vi-a-gra, etc. When you sign up to Subsim, we encourage you to be an active member of the forum community. That means making at least 1 post and introduce yourself. You, you're an interesting guy--you like submarine games, history, and computers. We want you to be part of the Subsim crowd.


To get the Bonus Mods & become a SUBscriber & member of the Subsim Navy, there are several levels of membership available, as low as $5! That's the cost of a Starbucks coffee or a pack of smokes.

You can download 25, 45, even 100 regular downloads daily, as well as gain access to the bonus mods, have a custom avatar and profile pic, and more album uploads. You are supporting the Subsim website and that's something to be proud of! :salute:

:rock:Click here to join and get your Bonus Mods! :rock:

After you have donated, you should see a new forum at the top of the page:
SUBSIM SUBscribers Lounge - BONUS MODS. That is where you go to collect your Bonus Mods.

This is where the Bonus Mods be, skipper. :ping:

This website hosts thousands of mods for over 80,000 registered members. To keep Subsim running, there are a few Bonus Mods (less than 10) that are available to supporters of the website. These include GWX Gold, We Dive at Dawn for SH4, Philipp_Thomsen/Sober Mega Mod combo pack of all the favorite Silent Hunter 5 mods, Narwhal Mod, several Tanksim mods, Pacific Aces, & a few more. Once you donate, your name will appear in the Donor's Corner at the top right.

Note: one donation allows you access to all of the Bonus Mod files.

Once you make a donation and become a SUBscriber, your Bonus Mods will be visible here. If you have a question or issue that needs my attention, please post here.

If you are not a SUBscriber and you have a question, OR you have donated but cannot find the SUBscriber Forum, please post here in this thread.

Wenn Du eine Nachricht erhalten hast "Sorry! Du hast Deine täglich erlaubte Downloadmenge erreicht" liegt das an einem der drei folgenden Gründe:

1. Du bist ein neues Mitglied und hast noch keinen Beitrag geschrieben. Neue Mitglieder mit 0 Beiträgen können auf bis zu 3 Downloads pro Tag beschränkt werden. Lösung: einen Beitrag irgendwo im Forum schreiben, wie z. B. einen Beitrag hier in diesem Abschnitt, um Dich vorzustellen. Nach etwa einer Stunde wird das Forum automatisch Downloads aktivieren.

2. Du bist schon lange Mitglied, hast aber noch nie einen Beitrag geschrieben oder lange Zeit keinen mehr geschrieben. Lösung: einen Beitrag irgendwo im Forum schreiben. Nach etwa einer Stunde wird das Forum automatisch Downloads aktivieren.

3. Du hast das Download-Limit für den heutigen Tag erreicht. Wir haben ein Limit, weil es mit hunderten von Mitgliedern, die jeden Tag herunterladen, ziemlich teuer für uns werden kann. Schau einmal auf den Spenden-Button oben rechts im Forum. Deine Spende trägt dazu bei, den Server bei Softlayer zu bezahlen. Eine Website dieser Größe verlangt viel Bandbreite und braucht einen wirklich leistungsfähigen Server um Tag für Tag online zu bleiben, und das seit 15 Jahren. Vielen Dank für Deine Unterstützung!

Downloads sind hier erhältlich und kostenlos, aber die Bandbreite der Website ist nicht unbegrenzt und nicht kostenlos. Lade heute ein paar mods herunter, morgen kommst Du wieder und holst Dir ein paar mehr.

Wenn Du Dich bei Subsim anmeldest, bitten wir Dich, ein aktives Mitglied der Forengemeinschaft zu sein. Das bedeutet: Bring Dich ein und erstelle mindestens einen Beitrag, um Dich vorzustellen. Du bist ein interessanter Typ - Du magst U-Boot-Spiele, Geschichte und Computer. Wir möchten, dass Du ein Teil des Subsim - "Haufens" wirst.

Forum Ranking System


Neal Stevens
Posted: Mon Jan 10, 2005 12:21 pm

Ostensibly, it would appear that the ranking system is based on a plain post count, and I allow some to believe that because if they knew the true method it would make their heads explode. Let me give you the bare outlines of the actual Subsim High Intensity Tallying method to determine the Captain Ranking System (CRS).

As you may have heard, I live in Texas and I work for the petrochemical (oil) business. One of the other substantial industries in the Lone Star State is the aerospace industry. Now it happened that one fine Saturday morning about eight years ago I was playing a round of golf with a couple of NASA engineers (rocket scientists) who are buddies of mine, Bob and Jack. I had just started the Radio Room forums online and apparently one of the engineers noticed my mind was elsewhere (I was two over par on the eighth hole).

"Neal," Bob asked me, "what's got you so worried this fine Saturday morning?"

I explained how Subsim Review had this new communications medium called an online forum, and how it was pretty clear to me that we would soon have over 20 users and there was no way to tell the wise old salts from the scrubs. Jack, the other engineer, chuckled and exchanged a glance with Bob. "That's easy," he said.

"Maybe for you," I replied. "You're a rocket scientist".

"No, really. We can help you out here," said. Jack. "How much of your college relational physics do you remember?"

I scratched my head.

"It can be done this way," said Bob. "All you need to do is develop some IP-based cache triggers that use floating algorithms to determine the naval and submarine material content of each user. Simply add this to the user registration process; it will be transparent to the end user. When he signs up, your server will run an antecedent probe of the user's system, establish his browsing and buying patterns. This will gauge how many historical and naval websites he visits, how many subsim games he buys from your store, when he made the last donation to, how often he posts in the Radio Room, stuff like that."

"Yeah," said Jack. "And the application will take this information and run it through a linear matrix, you could call it a marine matrix--" both guys snickered, some private joke or scientist humor, I guessed "--and this will give you a sound basis with which to rank the members of your forum. You can give these ranks traditional naval names and terms, such as lieutenant, petty officer, captain, etc."

"And if the matrix senses paradoxical flux from a particular user, you know, when he is talking out his a**, it will assign a temporary degradation in rank, such as a punishment or probationary rank, like a shore leave, the brig, or getting stuck in an Aussie cathouse and missing the tide."

So, that's pretty much how it worked out. There was more to the discussion but I'll skip the technical details. Hope that helps! :shucks:

Avatars and Signatures

If we did not ask for a donation to make special avatars, I would have 20 people a day asking me to change them (some probably several times).

Why a donation? Why standard avatars? Well, in short because...

This forum uses a system-default ranking and avatar scheme, which means the ranks are set and avatars are bestowed according to rank. Why? It's easier, cleaner, and looks more uniform than 15,000 assorted images, some of which would undoubtedly be weird, funky, or borderline porno. And since we are a naval-themed forum...we like doing things in a military manner.

This way, the "old hands" who have been around a while will have some distinction with nobler avatars and higher ranks. The "newbies" will start out with young sailor avatars and work their way up to the more warlike, martial visages. Along the way, a user may get a "shore leave" rank or something similar, as well as having to work their way through some "unpleasant duty" ranks. Eventually, you too may be a Commander or an Ace of the Deep.

From time to time, Special Ranks are given to users who perform some extra duties, such as making really useful mods, taking an assignment such as writing a game or book review, or posting a string of exceptionally witty or interesting posts.

:Kaleun_Salute:For a small donation to the website, you can get a special rank and your own avatar.

The donation is helpful, needed, and it gives special rank some meaning: you're not just another sailor here, you're a supporter. :up:

Multiple or duplicate accounts

Per the Forum rules:

You sign up one time. If you need help getting back in to your account after a long absence, contact the Admin. There is a daily check for users with multiple accounts--the accounts are deleted and the user may be banned.

Hi, I am new to the forum and to subsims in general, well war combat sims really, and I want to make a donation, but I am using a prepaid CC that I use to pay for another game, so I only have around 5 dollars on it, though I should be able to get the $5 dollar one time payment, just the paypal system won't accept my card because it is a temp card and not attached at all to my ID, is there some kind of work around for these cases? Thnx

What's SUBSIM Fridge Magnet?

A thin magnetic picture to stick on to your refrigerator, sometimes to hold bits of paper up too, sometimes just to look pretty.
