** Chinese U-47's [[http://subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.phpt=157060&highlight=warship+mod&page=46 Warship Mod]]. An awesome modification for ''[=SH3=]'' that allows you to command ''freaking battleships'' (to a certain degree)! A similar mod exists for ''[=SH4=]'' as well and there are far more ships available for 4, than 3.

** [[http://www.subsim.com Subsim]] has a whole boatload of them for almost every game in the series, most of which are designed provide an [[UpToEleven even more realistic]] play style. With full realism and improved ASW AI, NintendoHard doesn't begin to describe it.

** This is especially true at the highest reality settings, where you are restricted to what skippers of the time had, and so you need to be constantly doing calculations and approximations to put your torpedoes on target or evade escorts. Not counting the fact that you have to deal with limited fuel (for cruising on the surface), batteries (for moving underwater), air supply (CO2 content slowly rises over time) and compressed air (for fast diving or rising in the water), as well as long reload times and extreme vulnerability to depth charges.

** In III even the smallest merchant ship can open fire at you in close range... using small arms. If you are ''really'' unlucky, they can kill one of your crewmen on deck or break the periscope.

The series is primarily noted for it's dynamic campaign mode: rather than using specific missions the game engine simulates ship traffic according to historical shipping lanes, convoy routes and traffic patterns. The player is given an assigned grid to patrol, but is [[WideOpenSandbox free to head elsewhere]] if they feel they can find better hunting grounds on their own.

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential : VideoGameCaringPotential: In Silent Hunter I you get missions to rescue shot-down pilots during air raids. To do that, you often have to get dangerously close to the enemy base where the water is too shallow to hide ... all while under time pressure as the pilot will eventually drown.
