Detection

WW2 subsim games are all about sneaking and hiding and our detection mechanics had to evolve appropriately. From now on there are 7 detection mechanisms: visual, passive sound, active sound, radar, radar detector, radio and information (from HQ or other allies). Most of them can be either direct or indirect.

Indirect detection in UBOOT means that specific objects in group cannot be distinguished. Your crew may spot a smoke at the horizon or just hear some distant group on the hydrophone. What you know is that there is a group of something out there and depending on the detection method you may know, if these are ships or airplanes, estimate the size of the group, its position and even speed.

In general there are many factors affecting the detection chance. Some examples of factors that are implemented in UBOOT:

Smoke screens, regular smoke from fires, fogs and physical objects block the line of sight.
Detonated depth charges, shadow zones, seabed proximity, physical objects and stealthy hull covers affect sonar detection.
Devices on the ship, shadow zones, propeller cavitation and surface proximity affect hydrophone detection.
Radio transmissions make all destroyers go in your direction. Weird.

I've been out of the u-boat loop for a while now - this sure looks awesome!

This may get me back to play again, if it's full war and all uboat types, like it was with sh3.

Looks fantastic though the torpedoing of the merchant ship from so close is totally unrealistic!

Guys i cannot stress it enough, if you have suggestions and/or doubt don't hesitate to talk to them over steam. They really listen to the community and by listen i mean if your suggestion is vital and important they really implement it even if it takes some efforts.
So if you have suggestion to do, do it know while they are still open to changes and implementation.

The Gameplay Idea is very interesting, but man... that 3D Model of the Sub is not what I would expect in 2017

These are two 13,2mm Flak guns. We're pretty sure that these were being locked inside those long water tight containers directly below them and we're going to implement that into the game soon.

+1 on the lack of damage effects, also why are some of the crew Hobbit sized!?
Hope it all gets sorted, looks like an interesting game.
