3 x CD's of U-995
« on: December 21, 2011, 02:20:00 AM »
Today I received the belonged CD's of U-995.

I find the CD's very interesting, and can be most warmly recommended !! Still, I haven't gone thru all the material yet.  msclst

Even though I visited U-995 in 1994, I find the CD's worth owing, cause now I can just go in and out of the U-boat whenever I want, without paying a penny.

Okey.... I know that the delicious smell inside U-995, does not come along with the CD's..... santadoze


The U-995 CD's is really recommended for modders and historians, according to the website.  oldie1

I have been there inside the u-boat myself, but a virtual tour is fine too, I think.
Does it show the tower, inside and outside too?

No, unfortenately there are no photos inside the tower, only from outside.
I was also hoping to see some shots inside the tower, but as u may remember, the entrance to the tower from the inside, is still closed with a grating.  arggggggg

I know it was and is closed to the public, normally. I was one of the lucky few who was granted tower and deck access while being there with the members from subsim and the dev team from Ubisoft.

But still, a commercial virtual tour should include the tower and deck. The producer of that cd should have paid for such access.

So you have to make a tour in SH5 then. It's almost the same...  ;D

You can see especially by the video recordings, that it is done amateurish. Several of the shots are also made while other visitors are seen in the background.
Of course the team should have made a private arrangement, and paid some extra, if that's what it takes, to visit the tower inside.
In total there are several things that could have been done different, but that's how it normally always is. Anyway, my opinion is that when one wants to make a 3d tour, one should not allow anything to be absent.  arggggggg

Why is the conning tower off-limits to the tour? Sucks that it is.

Hallo, Kaleun Hossel !  tiphat

I dunno, but personally I guess it is closed for either 3 different purposes, or all together:
- The safety of the visitors
- Anyway too darn cramped up there for a guiding
- Some installations / plates they are afraid of loosing as this spot on the U-Boat has the worse overview for a guide below.  o050

That the tower is not avalible for any visitors that stop by, I can surely understand, but for a 3D tour, should have been obvious.  arggggggg

The mecanic who showed us the tower did tell of former thieves stealing parts of the weapons on the tower and deck.

Bastards!  redmad

So that's mainly because it is closed.

The security is another issue. If someone falls down, who is then responsible? It's thus also a matter of insurance.

But for the 3D tour, obviously it should have been included and without other visitors at the same time.

Yes, as assumed. Someone just can't keep their ****** hands off others properties.

Regarding the 3D tour: Yes I totally agree !  thup

I remember visiting the submarine U.S.S. Cavalla in Galveston, TX way back when. Her conning tower was open. Anyone know if U-505's tower is?

I remember visiting battleship Texas once...you could duck down and climb the ladder into the forward turret, but there was a plexiglass partition that prevented you from getting inside...all you could do was look around and then climb back down. The view was cool, but the fact that you couldn't climb inside sucked.
