Default Missing TDC / Torpedo options?

Hi

Thinking back to SH3-5, we had the ability to open / close tubes and flood etc to speed up firing, and set the torpedoes to fast / slow and magnetic / impact.

Are any of these coming? And considering the extremely impressive detail already in the game, are these features missing because the real subs never had them and they're just game mechanics from the Silent Hunter series?

There were all options in real Uboats and I agree Wolfpack should have these features!

The problem with flooding the tubes though is that this was done in the bow/stern compartments which aren't modeled in Wolfpack, so the controls would be inaccessible to players (which stinks because half the fun of the game is manipulating the levers and valves and other gizmos).

Considering that the players are presently only able to access the bridge and radio room, AKA are the officers of the boat, it could make sense immersion-vise that there are other crew handling the other aspects of the boat operations.


So, that brings us to the issue at hand. Could there be a system implemented to issue commands to other parts of the boat, ie: the other AI crew members?
