radar What kind of subsim skipper are you?

What kind of subsim skipper are you?
Everyone brags about how many tons he has sunk, or his polished firing point procedures. Talk is cheap. Subsim, in conjunction with NASA and the National Academy of Sciences, has formulated a simple quiz that will define the kind of subsim skipper you are.

SUBSIM SKIPPER QUIZ

Caution: taking the test more than once invalidates the results

HARDCORE SUBSIM SKIPPER No doubt about it, you are hardcore. You are the kind of subsim player who pins up the Kriegsmarine gridmap on your wall, you use a redlamp when playing at night, your wife lets you know her mother is visiting by shouting "Alarm!" and you didn't know--or care--that Silent Hunter III has a save game feature. You cut your teeth plotting attacks in Gato, sank 28,000 tons in your first Aces of the Deep patrol, and played Dangerous Waters at 100% realism. You scoff at wannabes who whine about some niggling detail in a subsim but use the red triangle-infested auto TDC and auto-map updates. You never, ever, use anything but full realism.
You are the "sim" in Subsim.

ps-Andrea the giant? Did Andre have a sister?

Not quite true, but excellent quiz!

I was told I should take up needle point and wear cozy slippers while working on the needle point in a rocking chair.

Hardcore too.

I really do play with a red lamp at night.



I've had all sorts of strange folks coming to the door recently too - I wonder if it's related?

NUKE SUBSIM SKIPPER
Periscopes are for wimps. Let's face it, any snapperhead can bring a WWII subsim to periscope depth, lock onto the red triangle and plug away. Real men never get closer than 8000 yards to their target. Your subsim of choice is made by a company in Waterford, Conn. You thrive on complex Target-Motion Analysis equations, deciphering broadband contacts, and gauging ESM signal strength. You are paler than Siberian stripper and proud of it. You long for the day you can take your Seawolf class nuke into an online game against a whole fleet of Type VIICs. One ADACP equals "make my day".

How can subsim allow a quiz like this? What are the Moderators thinking? It's unplayable I tell you!! My Admirals Edition of the game did't have this quiz...I double checked my tin box. Typical of the Devs to produce an unplayable quiz and not include it in my tin box.

And the sex with animals question...I did not know how to answer that....what are they considering sex? I hit the 'A' key on that question. CTD and that was it.......

But looks like I'm going to go for shore leave soon, since my HD is giving me severe trouble recently (as in making weird scratching noises and lagging on operation) - seems like it'll go down the brink soon. Time for backup. NO! My burner is dead since long, too...and today shops are closed. I think I'm ****ed.

hardcore

I even wash in diesel, I wear my binoculars around my neck when in Bridge View and have my cap on back wards while in 'Scope View. I have not yet rescued any aircrew because they refuse to hand over their watches.
