Instead of asking for a release date, I will ask it in a different way. What do you have left to do?

Do you think that would help you to estimate it better than I can do?

Let's try this, what "version" of WOTA are you most focused on? Can't you throw a few crumbs to your followers?

I'm working on the "WOTA: U 96" version for iOS. Or what are you meaning with version?

Thanks. No further questions at this time. I posted your latest YouTube video at another forum, and some folks over there are, as we say in the states, rippin' and roarin' and ready for the game. Latest video made me sea sick.

Totally free long range navigation will be available in the 2nd (much more complex) version "WOTA: Wolves of the Atlantic". In "WOTA: U 96" it will be limited to short and medium range only, means you can decide to intercept reported ships within range but you can't decide to move to e.g. Africa when your orders are different.

Hey Vic. I know you have read the book iron coffins by Herbert Werner. I just picked up a book the other day by someone in your country named Lothar Gunther Buchhheim- Uboat War. This book has a lot of rare photographs. Have you seen it?

Lothar-Günther Buchheim was the War Correspondent (or better war artist) Werner played by Herbert Grönemeyer in the movie "Das Boot". He wrote the book on which the movie is based on. "Das Boot" is the first of three about him and "der Alte" (Heinrich Lehmann-Willenbrock, played by Jürgen Prochnow in the movie). The second book (which I like most) is about the times when Willenbrock was leader of the 11th U-boat Flotilla before and during D-Day invasion and about escaping from Brest. The third one is settled in the 70s and is about their last journey aboard the Otto Hahn, a nuclear powered merchant cargo ship. Willenbrock was the Captain of the Otto Hahn. They talk about their memories in this book.

I would say Buchheim is the most famous former U-Boat man in germany today. More famous than any of the aces. He made $300 million after the war with an art collection. But actually the guy who played him in "Das Boot" is much more famous

But I haven't read the book you've mentioned

Have you done any work yet on the torpedo targeting system? The offset and gyro angle and all that stuff?

That is easy stuff - basically just the standard "Torpedo-Schussdreieck"
