The answer seems to forget that after reading it I'm now in the need of a good psychiater. I seem to be paranoic

I got the same "You fell in love with Aces of the Deep" appraisal. Don't know if I need to cry now, or find out what the heck it means by "right click" on the nav map. You can do that?

And I *love* manual TDC! Blank maps do scare me, though. "Here there be monsters!"

ACTION-ORIENTED SUBSIM SKIPPER
Oh hell, who are we kidding? Working TMA in Dangerous Waters is as exciting as watching paint dry. You want no part of it, and rightfully so, you are a man of action, the reason games with good graphics sell. You may try a hand at Silent Hunter 4 but only with fast reloads and never dud torpedoes. Who says you cannot sink a whole convoy and never drop below 16x time compression? And manual TDC? Are they crazy? If you wanted to work trig problems, you could do that in school. No, you like fast-paced games like Battlestations: Midway and Steel Tide. Blow stuff up real good! Zoom! Blam! Full speed ahead--look, a kitty!


not exactly, but kinda close. I do like to surface and try the deck guns out more often than most..... of course, I was a bit flippant in my answers.

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.

CASUAL SUBSIM SKIPPER

Hehehe, pretty close...

Apparently I'm a "Lilly-Livered Land-Lubber!"

Damn that was a funny quiz!

"You are the "sim" in Subsim."

So what's wrong with pinning the map to the wall and an occasional red light every now and then? :hmm:

By the way Neal, what's your score?

"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."


I'd say it's 80% true. Some doubts about the support management and logistics at the end, but otherwise it's pretty accurate. Congrats' for the quiz! I had fun while solving it.

Casual Skipper.

Thing is, bits from ALL the descriptions work for me. I did in fact bust my subbing chops on GATO, where I fell in love with the antique vagaries of the S-class. I still have the original Silent Hunter on my drive, kept expressly because cramped-up North Atlantic U-boat campaigns just don't hold a candle to roaming the wide Pacific. I owned and mostly enjoyed 688 Attack Sub, even.

But yeah, I also loves my map contacts, which I've always considered to merely be the work of a quality XO. I don't work the TDC, so much as I get in close and throw in a little "Kentucky Windage" to fob the shot. I like to stare destroyers in the eyeteeth before lobbing off a stern shot and diving for the bottom on a hard-over rudder.

Had I been a real boat CO in WWII, you betcha I'd've been relieved after the first patrol as a reckless nutter --- assuming we lived to get back. Of course, if we got back, it'd be with at least 25K in confirmed tonnage...-
