News:

SHMF has been alive for almost 6 years thanks to a few dedicated members.
However, most visitors were ungrateful and did not appreciate the reliable hosting of mods for our SH games.
Hence, the domain: silenthuntermods.com has been abandonned, and the forum itself has been saved on another subdomain in order to save some valuable posts. However, the mods...  well, there ain't room for them on the server, so the download links don't work anymore for most of them, unless the mods will be put up elsewhere by the modders themselves...
Personally, my own mods will be stored at mediafire, asap...

Regards,
Carotio

The most essentiel part of readme regarding mod history and installation quoted below.

For more detailed information regarding the construction of the mod, credits to modders, sources and websites and discussion regarding the progres of OM, then please visit the thread at subsim, by clicking on the banner:




Quote from: lurker_hlb3
For “Operation Monsun” (OM) version 705, there have been additional major changes and additions to the campaign layers that began in OM V700. These additional upgrades and changes encompass major naval operations by the Royal Navy in the North Atlantic, British Isles, North Sea, Bay of Biscay, and Norway. The naval operations that have been added are based on the assumption that there is a least a 50 percent chance or better that you as an Uboat commander will encounter these naval operations during one of your missions. Using “Chronology of the War at Sea, 1939-1945” and War Diaries from the Royal Navy as a master reference here is a list of the changes:

Air Warfare:

Complete rewrite of RAF Coastal Command Airbases and Aircraft assignments.

Naval Warfare:

As with the earlier Black Sea Campaign, “Operation Weserübung” (The German Invasion of Norway) and the follow on operations of the British & French Navies in 1940 were woefully inaccurate. In OM V705, this early war campaign has been completely rewritten and provides the user with a more historically accurate recreation of the various naval operations and patrol areas assign to Uboats as part of “Operation HARTMUTH”

Uboat Warfare:

A new start options has been added that will recreate the initial deployment of Uboats from German (Kiel) to forward bases in France and Norway.

The start dates for “BdU deployment to France” are:

September 1st 1940, December 1st 1940 , February 1st 1941, July 1st 1941, December 25th 1941, March 1st 1942, June 1st 1942, October 1st 1942, January 1st 1943, April 1st 1943, August 15th 1943, October 1st 1943, February 1st 1944

The start dates for “BdU deployment to Norway” are:

September 15 1941, February 1st 1942, July 1st 1942, October 1st 1942, April 1st 1943, August 15th 1943, February 1st 1944

Once you have selected one of these start dates, you will be then to select a either Type VII or IX, and next to each Uboat Type you will see the Flotilla that you’re going to be assigned to. Once the deployment mission starts you will “automatically” be transferred to your new Flotilla / base within five days of mission start (watch for the “anchor icon” to change).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

OM V705 to V720 Upgrade

For “OM V705 to V720 Upgrade” there have been additional changes and additions to the campaign layers that began in OM V700/V705. These additional upgrades and changes encompass major naval operations by the Royal Navy in Norway during Operation Weserübung, the English Channel during Operation Dynamo and Operation Torch.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Operation Monsun version recap

OM v100 – Type IX deployment and operations in the Far East
OM v200 - Operation Paukenschlag, The assault on the east coast of the US (December 1941 – June 1943)
OM v301 - Type II / XXIII Coastal Operations in the North Sea and Black Sea
OM v400 – Operations in the North Atlantic

Special Note:

Details of all the changes for previous versions of OM can be found in the Support / OM Readme Files directory of this mod.


WARNING

I do not look at “very possible” mod that is out there. If you load a mod up, after RSRDC or OM and JSGME generates a “conflict” warning and you go ahead and loaded it anyway and RSRDC / OM no longer works correctly, “It is NOT my problem”, so don’t ask me to fix it, because I won’t.

What are the recommended PC specifications for the "Operation Monsoon" mod?  My I have a 1.6 gHz laptop & a 2.5 gHz desktop, both of which are capable of playing SH4, albeit with all the fancy graphics options switched off.  Could they cope with the OM mod?

It does add a lot more traffic which may require more CPU power, but I think you should be allright with your desktop. I'm not sure about your laptop though.

I've found that this mod works fine on my laptop (1.6 MHz, 4Gb RAM, integrated graphics card) as long as I turn all the fancy graphics options down.  Things do get a wee bit juddery near harbours & when encountering large convoys if the time compression is cranked up, but by turning the time compression down things are manageable.  Overall, I'm very impressed by the amount of dedicated work that's gone into this mod.  Once I can work out how to stop aircraft from delivering accurate attacks against my sub when it's creeping along 60 metres below the surface I'll be a happy man...

Finally after years of waiting i will be installing and playing this remarkable mod. I am very interested to see the Med campaign, as a cousin of mine  was a U boat Kapitain and sank with his boat U 223 in the Med after being one of the few U boat commanders to successfully sink a enemy ship with the stern tubes....in his case a RN destroyer. I am very grateful that you have this fine mod and the essential patches stored here, sir, and look forward very much I am to playing this.

Do you have any alerts or suggestions for a starting Cadet with this mod? my system should run it at full as i have a FX 9600 Card, with a 2.6 Ghz AMD system ....so i dont anticipate problems with the graphics. thank you again....and best wishes for 2012, as i have not made a port call here in your excellent site for some time. I do hope all is well. Danke.
