Default [REL] Captain's Desk Photos Mods

These are sets of images to replace the sailor photo on the desk in the office. Images have been resized, then either cropped, or had padding added top and bottom or on the sides to meet the SH4 size requirement, then converted to the required TGA format. These files ONLY work with the American Career when using the U-boat Add-on. The German office uses a different directory and image size.

These files are set up to be used with my SH4 Randomizer, or Digital Trucker's A Girl In Every Port program.

Files which say "some slight nudity" means either naked backsides, or nudity with the "naughty bits" not visible. Usually both types are in a given set.

Except for the modern era girls, images are from WWII era actresses or artists. I've tried to not include images that are blatantly so, however some images are post-war.

All files include a readme.txt, which includes more information and instructions on using the images without AGIEP. They also include a thumbnail image file which you can also view by clicking the following link:


View Thumbnails

NOTE: The thumbnails are on my MediaFire account. For the larger images, you will have to download them to see them properly.

Captain's Desk Photos 1

32 black & white pictures (no nudes) of modern day model and self-proclaimed "Most downloaded woman on the Internet," Danni Ashe. Images were originally in color, but for a bit of "realism" I dropped them down to grayscale.


Captain's Desk Photos 2

32 black & white pictures (no nudes) of modern day model & late night premium cable actress Shannan Leigh. Images were originally in color, but for a bit of "realism" I dropped them down to grayscale.


Captain's Desk Photos 3

50 black & white pictures (no nudes) of modern day burlesque star and model Dita Von Teese. Her look is based on 1940s style, so she's a natural for this. Images were originally in color, but for a bit of "realism" I dropped them down to grayscale.


Captain's Desk Photos 4

117 color art pin-up pictures (some slight nudity) by artist George Petty. Chosen primarily because he was born in my home state of Louisiana.

After Pearl Harbor, she all but abandoned her film career to work towards the war effort.

Captain's Desk Photos 37

Captain's Desk Photos 41

80 black and white and color art pictures (some slight nudity) by various artists of 1950s pin-up queen Bettie Page. Since her photograph set is by far the most popular set I've done, I thought y'all might like some art based on or inspired by her photos.

Yeah, what RDP said

Totally off topic, RDP, where's Rudolph? He's not on strike with the Writer's Guild, is he?

Not being subject to FAA regs, Santa only uses Rudolph in bad weather. And as can be clearly seen, it's only partly cloudy.

(Do you realize that after RDP changes his sig back after Christmas, no one's going to know what the heck we're talking about? )

Yep, we'll just have to tell anyone that asks "Well, you had to be there"

Two more sets added. See the first post for details.

For my next set, I'm considering something different. Pics of some male participants in the war. Stuff like FDR, Nimitz, Admiral Lockwood, MacArthur (for the Australia based boats. If you were there, you were ultimately under Doug), maybe some of the more famous sub skippers.

Sound good, or should I stick to the hot babes?

Darn, I must be getting old (don't say anything) I'm getting behind in filling up my Captain'sGirls folder to the overflowing point :rotfl: Thanks for putting these together, dude

As for your question, my answer would be the same as my answer to just about any other question "Why not?". I'm sure that some folks would like to have a famous face sitting on their desk. And, who knows, there might be a lady or two out there playing this game

In my opinion, in RL there is no way that there would be a picture on a desk of a Male!!! On the office wall, the military often has and/or requires, that an official picture(s) of the superiors in the chain-of-command be hung...FDR, Admiral King, CINCPAC Nimitz, SubRon Commander, etc,etc...But NEVER, ever, on the desk. That would always be a 'personal' pic of a loved one...family, GF, wife, fantasy celeb movie star, etc etc etc...
...imho and experience...

P.S. Thanks for your MOD. I use the Veronica Lake pack and it's always fun to enter the office to see what the next photo of her will be.

That's why I started doing this. The stock photo is of a sailor...

A male sailor...

Not even a WAVE...

And to top it all off, he's not even an officer!!

My question to UBI is, "What's up with that???"

Really though, I thought it might make a nice change of pace. And also allow some "hero worship" as it were.

Default Any ideas on how to change to a single photo we choose?

I have no idea how to do a mod, but what if we want to insert a single photo of our choosing--say a girlfriend or wife?

My wife--who gave me SH4 as a gift and loves that I'm loving it--is kidding me about putting her photo on the desk. Any ideas on how to do this?

Perhaps a small mod that accepts a photo?

The guts of what I'm asking are probably right here, just need to know how to do it. Can anyone offer any help / tips / point in the right direction?

Many thanks!
