Weekly update
 
Hello Everyone!
This week we've been working on the new buoyancy system. Here is a work in progress video.

The water asset and buoyancy system is a big update even though it is not readily apparent to the end user. This new built-in-house water asset the new water asset is very efficient with resources and will allow the game to take advantage of the latest version of the Unity engine. The original water asset allowed the devs to get a game in place and on the Early Access platform, now they have engineered a greatly superior water asset of their own that will work much better for the game, with caustic effects, better shading of underwater views through the periscope, and the long-awaited foam and wakes that will improve the visible appearance.

Will we get underwater effects? Like the sub being pushed around by dc's?

Could you also please add depth charge explosions above surface?
This would be really helpful when working together in a pack.. locating
a buddy in need :salute:

Incomplete support for widescreen monitors
 
Yesterday, I purchased Wolfpack in the hopes that it would support a widescreen monitor, specifically 3440x1440. All seemed to work fine until I finally got around to the conning tower where I wasn't able to access any navigation or attack scope controls. The cursor just doesn't move past a certain point on the left or the right of the screen -- confining me to a view that is just between either of the two control areas. If you guys could take a few moments and just make it work the same as the rest of the locations, that would be great. Essentially, the game is unplayable for me until this is resolved.

Also, there is something that I find to be a real annoyance: When I move the cursor around the screen, the pointer is a "precision pointer" (crosshair) type rather than a "arrow-pointer" type. The crosshair is useful on the map display, but is very difficult to see on other displays. If you guys could just alter the mousepointer type so that it shows the crosshair type only on the map display that would be VERY helpful.

Noted, thanks.

Would be nice if they can invert the color of the mouse icon. White on a bright map surface or background sky in the main menu is easily lost. We need more contrast aside from size.

Hello everyone!
This week we've been working on the new water asset.
We are finished with depth sampling and buoyancy, and next week
we will work on refraction and reflection. We also held a Q&A where we got some good input from the community. Thanks to everyone who participated.

Hello everyone!
This week we've been working on various under water effects
for the new water asset.

May i suggest to remove underwater "wavy effect" when watching your submarine through the scope. (sub appears to be wavy and curved)
They also did this in SH series but that is something taken from spongebob and other cartoons.
If you watch your submarine through a scope underwater it would be seen normal, only if you watch a sub from above the water then it would appear to be wavy and curved because of the refraction of light.

Keep up the good work!
