1. Steam
2. No, but refueling is unnecessary
3. No ports whatsoever.

Wolfpack, in its present state is a multiplayer (PvE), real time simulation of the approach and attack phases of WWII submarine warfare in the Atlantic theater.

Each submarine can be crewed by up to five players and each wolfpack can have up to 5 submarines.

When you start the game your are placed in a position near the enemy and must prosecute the attack.

It really is an Alpha title at the moment and you are paying to test as the game is built into Beta and eventual Release version.

Dev update September 13
 
Hello everyone! Sorry about the radio silence. From now on we will be making weekly updates every Friday. This week I have been working on the bots. The only thing that is missing right now are character animations, which Einar is making. Patch 0.19 with the bots is coming out as soon as the animations are done.

Weekly update
 
This week has been devoted to the completion of the bot system.
Oscar's been bug fixing and improving the interfaces while
I've been working on custom animations for the bot characters.

We are currently set on releasing the patch by the end of next week.

Version 0.19 - Bots
 
Hello everyone!

We are now releasing the bot features we've
been working on the past month. The addition
of bots will make the game more
single player friendly by allowing you to control
the U-boat from a dashboard interface.

Bots are activated on a per server basis in
the lobby menu.
To access the bot interface in game, click the
mouse wheel, or press F1-F3 for individual bots.
Bots play crew members that do not have a player.
If a player logs in, the corresponding bot is deactivated. There is no captain bot.

Use the helmsman interface (F1) to set the speed, heading and rudder angle. The helmsman bot will notify you if the battery level is low


https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/stea...ef53e6470e.jpg
The torpedo data computer may be controlled via the helmsman interface.


https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/stea...85ded69e0e.jpg
The hydrophone and the radio are available in the radio man interface (F2). The radio man bot will notify you of radio messages as well as hydrophone contacts.


https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/stea...92bc9db58a.jpg
The dive officer interface (F3) allows you to set the U-boats depth by entering a desired value. Use the automated quick commands for diving, surfacing, emergency dive and for maintaining periscope depth. The dive officer bot will notify you if the compressed air supply is low.



Patch notes:


Added bots. Press the middle mouse button, or F1-F3 to activate the bot menus.
Added scalable menu cursors.
Added overlay to distance table to make it easier to use.
Added quick encounter option.
Outgoing telegraph messages are now logged.
Added indoor zoom.
Increased time between fired salvo shots to 2.3 seconds.
Added bearing indicator to UZO
Reloading torpedo tubes now depletes compressed air.

Selecting the Close Encounter option will place your starting position in a random spot where the convoy is coming towards you, give or take 90 degrees. Essentially, check this and you are not forced to perform a lengthy end around run to get in front of the convoy. Should you wish to start a mission with a chance of needing to do an end around, leave this unchecked.

When using the hydrophone interface, you can click on the speaker icon to "put the headphones on", and click again to "take them off".

When a U-boat sends a radio message, it will be received by any U-boats surfaced or above 12m.
A U-boat below 12m will not get the message, and it is not "saved" for them when they surface; they missed the message.
