    You guys know of any good submarine simulation games available for the Mac? Something along the lines of Silent Hunter III in complexity and thoroughness. I have a Powerbook G4, so unfortunately dual booting isn't an option for me, and I'm dying to get at a subsim again!

    Try looking at Danger from the Deep. http://dangerdeep.sourceforge.net/

    Supposed to be Linux/Windows only (it's open source) however the wanted page says the game already runs on MacOSX on PowerPC. - however you might need to compile it from source. Looks nice tho.:cool:

    Also lookup Harpoon III - it's a 'Modern Naval & Aerial Warfare Simulator' but is available for Mac OSx

    "Dangerous Waters" is the one I play when I need my sub rush on my PC. I also wish there was a Sub Sim for my MBP. I will have to check out "Danger From The Deep". I might have to sit down and figure out to get it to run. Thanks!
