Well but of course, I think it's obvious I'd be in the HARDCORE club :p

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.

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".




...But I never played a Nuke Subsim Ever I prefer my Silent hunter 3 XD

Some of the questions were confuseing.

You are the "sim" in Subsim.

its taken awhile to learn sh4, i have seen neals tutorial vids, whiched helped alot,
and not letting a crappy graphics card stop me, i went out and bought a 512kb graphics card and a power supply to drive it, this game is great!

or will be great when some bugs are fixed, and the modders are already doing a great job, thanks guys!

Hmm...only few people had that...only so many got nuke subsimmer as result...hmmm. Ask yourself, when you were a nuke subsimmer and submerged for half a year the next time - would you rather your dog or your XO? I can see some questions coming up there...



Or are there females on board nuke subs?

CASUAL SUBSIM SKIPPER
You fell in love with Aces of the Deep. Your playing style is relaxed, more for fun than historical accuracy. You always play Sub Command or Dangerous Waters from the NavMap (rightclick is your friend), if you ever ventured to play them at all. Probably you prefer WWII subsims like Silent Hunter 3, SH4 and Aces. You may try the manual TDC, but you prefer to leave the auto map contacts on, (blank maps scare you). Even though you know submarine skippers missed targets occasionally in real life, you cannot resist reloading a mission to take another shot at a 10,000-tonne troopship that got away. One ship, one torpedo, finished off with the deck gun--that's the creed you live by.

That's my results although I'm not sure why. I plot my own solutions, don't like nuke sims, maps are blank so I can mark them up (sometimes I draw pictures while waiting for targets), play Dead is Dead (except if a program glitch kills me), and realism currently at 85% (external few to take snaps & stabilize views).

I'm somewhere between hard core and casual. I wonder what the other results are. Is there just 3 ?

Role-playing subsim skipper
Your taste in sub and naval games runs the gamut from Grey Wolf to Silent Hunter 4. You have tried them all, at varying realism options. Your a lit-tle old-er than the typical subsim skipper, and probably remember using a tape cassette player to load programs onto your Radio Shack TRS-80. Your primary joy is using your imagination to put yourself into the game. You are able to overlook little details like the crew appearing instantly on the bridge, or wonky AI: to you, these are easily worked into the story as a crew who are really light on their feet, and frigates that have green skippers. The game platform gets you halfway there, your imagination does the rest. You spend lots of time setting up your crew management so it's just right and may even talk to them. You relish managing support and logistics in games like Pacific Storm, Navy Field, and Silent War.

Nuke... not that that's going to surprise anyone.


8000 yards? That's close as hell!
