Default Is this forum abandoned or still has some people on it?

I've recently found Silent Hunter 3 from some old videos on youtube and i decided to try it out, and it's been pretty addicting. But every time i didn't know what to do and searched it on Google, this forum shows up. And every single message seems to be from 2005 to 2009, and it's kinda like a Internet time capsule. Are there still active people? And if so, how many?

Welcome aboard !

Folks here will be glad to help you out with any questions you may have.

Google can also be your friend finding stuff here, as the site search engine leaves much to be desired.
Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgment.

It'll never be abandoned as long as I draw breath! And if I may disagree a little bit with Onkel Neil - I and several die hards still have a lot to say! Although it is definitely quiet compared to 2007, I am not alarmed; I would say it is just part of the natural switch from mass-market, big developer/Ubisoft supported projects (like the Silent Hunter series itself) to boutique projects kept alive by amateur enthusiasts, working for a smaller fanbase. These projects include entirely new simulators like Wolfpack and mods like GWX Knights Cross & Wolves of the Kaiser, that intend to really push the modding envelope. There are some absolutely huge breakthroughs in the pipeline; it's just that several development teams (including my own WWI modding team) are spending much more time on modding than advertising/posting. Silent Hunter 5's moddability was a bit of a disappointment, but its predecessors have actually aged quite well - thanks to the magic of Silent 3ditor and other modding tools... With a little luck, SH3 and SH4 will be unrecognizable in 2-3 more years. And the forums at subsim will be here to document the revolution. So stay tuned! And welcome.
