I tried for years to contact ref. I still know where his real life website is.

I do not know why he just left. He was the MASTER of SH files!
I do know S3D was something he gave so much info to create!
ref, DivingDuck, Anvart (My crazy Russian Friend), and myself.

Those SH3 interiors, are they still around? FM's is the only one I know of.

Cease & Desist for an editor? Crazy!

The Cease and Desist was due to taking advantage of a dll.
Can't say I blame them for that outlook.

Not sure who did or released the interiors ripped from SH5.
You could ask HanSolo78.
I have the versions in WAC now that I'm looking at to see if I can help reduce the file sizes.

Hans pointed out it is a large amount of work IF done the old way by hand and editing every file one by one.

What if we run a program to scan the complete Sea folder and do all the work for us?
Would that be of interest?
Hell yeah!!!

Follow the files.
Oh yes one of Jeff's first teachings...

Been doing this for a long time now, for personnal use and for a add-on mod for FOTRSU, which gives us 20+ "cloned" ships, all having the Maru name attached for the Japan roster, while keeping the original files within their own rosters and with totally different names. Yet the clone shares the dat / sim / val / dsd / cam / zon of the model it's cloned from.

In SH4 it works fine.
I know damned well I had it working in SH3 at one point!
I'm still looking at what I had working and trying to duplicate.
If I can't get it working I don't have a problem saying.....
"Oh Crap!! I was wrong!"

I vaguely remember you mentioning it back in the past.
Have looked thru all my emails from then and can't find anything, must have been in the lair

Do you have SH4 ? In the uboat expansion the Nevada was added.
In the Nevada cfg in the sea folder is a line of text which points the game to look for another 3d model.
Colorado if memory serves.

There is no Nevada dat, sns etc. Game uses the Colarado model for that but with a skin dedicated to the Nevada.

2 ships, one 3d model.

The mod above uses same set up but with merchants.

Nowhere near PC at mo so this is from memory

Thank you for the reply! So,you mean that both ships (original and cloned) are exactly the same (AA guns, hitpoints.....), except for the texture?
I don't have SH4, could you send me the files, or show me a screenshot?
