Default 688(i) Attack Sub Community

Years ago when I first started playing the game I was able to join a commuity that set up matches. We had ranks, rules and the works. We would join up on ICQ and have great matches against other fleets. Anyone know if this is still around?

that would be cool. Never knew something like that existed.

Were you stationed on the Iowa?

Default Sea Wolves

Gentleman,

I believe the Sea Wolves virtual navy is still around and they played what you are talking about. There are (were) others, check Subgroup or the links here on Sub Sim.

Thanks Ron, I'll do that. Ya Chopped, it was a pretty big online community. We had different fleets, rank structure, ROE and ICQ contact. It was a blast playing the game multiplayer, waiting for the cool down timer in order to fire off your fish and guide them toward the other players, giving contact updates to your team over TS. I made it all the way up to Lt. before EQ1 dragged me away. Yes, I was on the Iowa from pre-com 83-87. Reported aboard as a deckape in 5th Division (Boats), then as a QM3 in Nav Division.

EDIT: Yes!! Did a search for Seawolves Virtual navy and found it. Same kinda set up, new web page. Thanks for the suggestion Ron. Chopped the addy for the website follows:

Default Scenarios

For you who are playing the old but great simulation-688i- I have many custom scenarios that I collected and I will share them. I am not real good at forwarding stuff, mostly by attachment. I will be glad to give it a try if anyone is interested.

I don't know how to send attachments on this site, I have only sent stuff in e-mails.

Default I have about 500 missions

Capt_quin,
There are sub v sub, surface craft, strike missions, mine laying, seal ops, rescue missions. This was the hottest sim at one time, and everyone was making missions for it. I don't know but I "believe" it was one of the first with a mission editor.
In fact you see a lot of the 688i missions have been recycled into SC and DW.
It was and is a great sim.

Seawolves isn't quite what it used to be back in its prime, but after all, the game is 10 years old now! Still one of the few places that you can go to get some quality 688 games in. Glad to see people still enjoy the game so much.
