Yes, nice addition. Visible torpedoes on the map and verification on AOB and speed is just what we needed.

Though I do agree with Elphaba/Capt. Zoe Summer's question on discord: What does the length of the target speed vector, and the position of the forward triangle indicate? Location of target at impact time? Or just X time in the future. That didn't seem to add up to anything sensible when I calculated at the time of trying it out.

Default Wolfpack training

Hey guys,

I've searched far and wide on the internet for useful tutorials for Wolfpack. Gamestash's Youtube channel has some very useful and clear tutorials that helped me out pretty well.

Here's a tutorial about the Torpedo Data computer:



And here's a nice video about the enigma machine in wolfpack:

The training mission gives you the option to observe the calculated torpedo trajectory, as well as the distance, speed and angle on bow of the target.

The targets are represented by blue triangles. The semi-transparent triangle in front of each target represent the targets position on the calculated impact.
Ship types are also represented, allowing you to practice identifying the ships using the recognition manual.

Default Easy mode vs realistic mode

What a nice tutorial..


Now that we know these features are there (cough)...

How about adding an EASY Mode to go along with the Realistic mode?
Leaving the torps and angles available on Nav map during a regular outing?


Hey.. more options..the better... Jus'sayin
of course whoever Host a lobby can pick if Easy is allowed or not..

I respectfully disagree

In this context, more options would be bad for the community/players in the long run.

It's an old discussion, I'm sure you've seen it many times. It boils down to humans being lazy and preferring the easier way. Some folks, on the other hand, would rather go through slightly more 'trouble' to get more satisfaction out of the whole thing. Then you get your player base segmented and so on.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the no-UI/hardcore/whatever-we-wanna-call-it approach when I first launched the game.

Love this addition! Super helpful for those of us who aren't too experienced with manual aiming, but doesn't necessarily make things too easy once the skill set develops.

Now I'd just love to see some sort of single-player functionality. Playing with a full crew of real people is absolutely amazing and I don't want that lessened, however sometimes it's hard to get the whole crew to report for duty.

Yep I seen that before.. it is when a company does not notice their software is being under sold and shuts the door... but by all means.. limit the game as much as possible...we are not paying the bills.. and there are "other" titles that offer more options .. ;-)

Do try playing solo, it's a bit of a challenge running around the stations but it's a lot of fun and very satisfying when you sink 'em all on your own
