Don't worry. Seems complicated but it's not.

1.
First install Discord and search for the Wolfpack channel on it (you will recognise it easy has it have the Woflpack logo).

There you will find a lot of people willing to play, news about the sim and channels in different languages so you can use these channels to talk with your sub crew.

2
YES, is waaayyy better for play & inmersion to have a mic/headset with it.
Typing can be very frustrating when things got dangerous in the sea and believe me... they will

3
Then, you can click in the game the FIND SERVER option or you'll see already servers opened with people onboard the sub. It's very intuitive.
TAKE into account that FIRST you will enter a sub, and typing in your keyboard you can ask the crew in they are using discord or ask for a link on it to join the channel they are using.

So... join and be happy!

You need to go to audio settings (an option that appears when you right-click the icon of the "speaker" at the bottom of your screen) and change your sound output preference to the Headphones & mic and that's it.

Discord is pretty intuitive. In my case, I didn't need to do any configuration in Discord to talk to other

First, I would be using the Discord app. I started with the link above and ran Discord in my browser but my guys told me the app was better. The image below shows where to get the Windows app

Now, once you are in the Discord Wolfpack main channel, simply line up some guys to play with. You can then get in one of the English voice chat rooms and and get their Steam names so you can easily Invite them to your Lobby in Wolfpack.




Now all you have to do go to Steam and start Wolfpack, make a private lobby and Invite them in, then pick the roles and start the game. Let me help if I can, find me in Discord and I will join you. I am in the voice English Draufgänger channel, Stoppro

My Steam name is... yes, it is Subsim
