Someone was doing that a while back (not for FotRSU), but I don't think they ever finished, and I cannot find the old thread. Maybe someone else remembers it. There are quite a few "Fleet" boats to deal with, though all similar. One thing about modeling the interior of the boats is the hit on the performance of the user's computer. It would be nice to have as an option, though I'm sure it'd complicate a lot of the work that CapnScurvy has done...

Captain America started work on extending the CR to include Officers Quarters and you can read about it here:
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom//sho...d.php?t=155147

Very sad that the images are gone, thank Photobucket and their 3rd party off site hosting fee for that.

In TMO19 Ducimus started to add compartments using this method that you can access a little however they are dark.

It was a clever idea to simply extend the CR and insert bulkheads to pass through, but it was soon realized that it would have taken a supercomputer to render this interior work, so it stopped.

I thought this would be a good time to give an update on the progress in getting AI subs into Fotrs Ultimate, and AI firing torpedoes in general. There will be 11 AI Submarines:

1 American Fleetboat
1 German U-Boat
9 Japanese Submarines

Of the 9 Japanese subs, 4 will have patrol aircraft capabilities (carry an armed float plane) which can attack from long distances.



And their deadly:



Like any other "carrier", if your sub is detected, the plane will be launched toward your last known location as long as the sub is within range.

The remaining AI Subs will have the capabilities to "attack" your player sub using all available armaments. If detected, the enemy subs will leave their destination way points and seek out your sub, much like the Destroyers will.

One such armament will be the added AI Torpedoes that all AI Subs will have, plus the games Destroyers and PT boats.

As an example, I've had a test mission using two Japanese Subs (a Model C3, and a Jyunsen B) against 4 enemy freighters traveling at various speeds. The results are a "clean sweep" of the ocean from the two subs!!

Here's the Jyunsen B sending a second spread to the first Freighter:



As the following map shows, the first Freighter is sunk, and the C3 is closing in on Freighter 3 and 4:



The C3 has both of its Deck Gun 55's firing as the sub approaches the acceptable torpedo range of 1400 yards or less:



Once it's within range, it too fires its torpedoes:




As I said, with these two AI Subs approaching the four various targets.....their not going to avoid destruction!

Which brings up the fact that your sub will have a greater challenge in survivorability then ever before:




This added threat will also come from the enemy surface ships equipped with AI Torpedoes. I'm still working on putting them onto all Destroyers and appropriate ships as required. But, the outcome is the same. You don't want to take this added weapon lightly!!

Holy cow, Capn! THIS is well worth waiting for.
Yikes. Where's Steve Irwin when we need his "Danger! Danger! Danger!" bit?

The future is bright! Thanks Capn!

OUTSTANDING Capn! Can't wait to try it out! I have ran across planes dropping torpedoes while I was on the surface during an rescue mission for downed aviators. Diving the boat and going to the free camera to watch the torpedoes go above your conning tower!! GREAT JOB!

THANKS TEAM!!

Our only comfort is that the US ASW airplanes start dropping homing torps in 1944...
