Default High Contrast Nav Map with Inverse Shallow Colour > By NisGeis

High Contrast Nav Map with Inverse Shallow Colour

This mod changes the map colours, for those that have trouble differentiating between the depth information on the chart. It also offers the removal of terrain elevation information and also the correct nautical use of dark colours for shallows and light for the deep, as opposed to light for shallows and dark for deep on maps.











Download the mod and then choose one mod to install. There are four options contained within the one rar file.

Download here

Default How To Re-Install A SH5 DVD Following Uplay’s Update Instructions For TWoS Players

How To Re-Install A SH5 DVD Following Uplay’s Update Instructions For TWoS Players

This is a comprehensive tutorial so that those with very little PC experience can make these changes needed so they have the opportunity to once again enjoy playing Silent Hunter 5

This Tutorial is for players who already have the SH5 DVD version and a game installed rather than someone who has just purchased this version.

If you are re-installing and want to keep your previous saved games then change the name of your SH5 saved games folder which can be found here C:\Documents\SH5
Example to > SH5 Backup.
You can copy and paste the contents into the new SH5 folder which will be created in the new installation.

Go to the Control Panels Programs and Features and uninstall the Silent Hunter 5 game showing and also the Uplay Game Launcher.
Select to delete all saved games when prompted.
When both are completed run a Registry cleaner and re-boot your system.
How To Use The Free Registry Cleaner 'Ccleaner' > Pictorial > Includes Download Link

IMPORTANT NOTE > Before re-installing your DVD it is very important to download a new Uplay Game Launcher.
This will stop the DVD from using its own installation which is the one which is causing problems.
Download here.

Default How To Use The Ship’s Journal In Silent Hunter 5

How To Use The Ship’s Journal In Silent Hunter 5
This tutorial will show you how to place Supermarks on the Map and add text entries directly to the Ship’s Journal (SJ)

This Journal need not be treated as a Master SJ as you can make as many Journals as you wish.
When the game next loads you will see the name of the Journal last used, (Picture 24).

Picture 1 > When the game loads to the Main Menu open the SJl.
You now need to give the SJ a name I have used “TheBerbMeister’s Journal”



Picture 2 > The selected name now appears underneath theSJ.l
Load Game.


Picture 3 > Shows the SJ Icon which is used to Open and Close it.


Picture 4 > When the SJl opens you will see 8 Icons at the bottom of the Journal page.
Open Journal Icon.


Picture 5 > Save Journal Icon


Picture 6 > Add Entry Icon


Picture 7 > Disabled Icon not used


Picture 8 > Disabled Icon not used.


Picture 9 > If lit each new entry will be saved in the SJ File.


Picture 10 > Each New Entry will be shown in the SJ.


Picture 11 > Each New Message will be shown in the Message Box.


Picture 12 > Supermark Marker tool.


Picture 13 > Positioning a Supermark


Picture 14 > Supermark options.


Picture 15 > Saving a Supermark


Picture 16 > Adding Text to the SJ


Picture 17 > Saving the Text Entry


Picture 18 > Text added is now showing in the SJ.l


Picture 19 > Saving the entries from the SJ Icon.


Picture 20 > When ending your gaming session you have the option to use the current SJ name which is "TheBerbMeister's Journal" or, create a new one.
As an example in this picture I am using a New SJ Name U-30.


Picture 21 > Do not forget that you also need to Save your Game as well as saving your SJ.


Picture 22 > Exit to the Main Menu next.


Picture 23 > The Journal first used to open with has had new entries that have not been saved.
Select Yes to save your SJ.


Picture 24 > U-30 now show as the last saved SJ which will be used when you Load your last Game save.
If you do not want to use this option then Click on the SJ and you will see a list of the Journals that have been saved.


Picture 25 > If you wish to view the contents of any saved Journal:
1. Select it,
2. Click on it to open.
3. X to exit.

Default Black Rectangles Showing On The Menu Screen

Black Rectangles Showing On The Menu Screen

If your problem showing is similar to the picture above the most likely cause is an error you have made when installing TDW’s Generic File Patcher to its correct installation location > C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5
Take a look at this tutorial from page 2 of my SH5 tutorial thread
