FOTRS Ultimate v4 release (Mod for SH4)

Post by Sprite » Wed Nov 30, 2016 3:30 am

Public release of Fall of the Rising Sun v4 for SH4 has been released. The guys on subsim who have been testing it are calling it: "The Grey Wolves equivalent for SH4." It's actually a larger megamod than Grey Wolves. I'm downloading now, let you know how it goes :o

I must go up to the skies again, to the peace of silent flight, To the gull’s way, and the hawk’s way, and the free wings’ delight;
And all I ask is a friendly joke with a laughing fellow rover, And a large beer, and a deep sleep, when the long flight’s over.

ive been trying it out, it is very well done. Love the ship additions. Theres literally hundreds of new ships, all very well textured. One of my main complaints with the base game was a seemingly constant hydrophone bug. Where my sonar man often would hear things that werent there, or not hear ships that were right in front of me. I also sometimes experienced no return when I sent a ping on their bearing. I have not had these issues yet after a few missions so that is great if consistent now.

The graphics enhancements are fantastic. I believe it's an existing texture pack, not sure which one, but it looks really great. The explosions are so satisfying, I'm tempted to shoot at a heavily escorted target just because I want to see it go boom. Especially at night.

I also have to compliment the new sinking mechanics. the realistic listing and sinking of torpedoed ships are great. Definitely worth a play through, and very simple install as well

Does this game support widescreen? I seem to recall SH3 did not.

I'm currently running with 1920x1080, but I dont think it supports a higher resolution than that
