I just bought the game this weekend and VERY happy with it...even in Alpha Stage.

Great game play. Although I will say SOME of the micromanaging is silly (really..you guys can flip a red light on at night, white during day, and blue to silent running?, or having to manually move food from stowage to the galley? I should be able to just load the galley up, and some spare food at port and the cook should move it). But other aspects I really like.

My biggest complaint is how quickly discipline goes down. One good engagement and I go from 100% to 20%? And all we did was sink 4 ships... hell discipline should be HIGH (Morale is more appropriately the term).

But overall a BLAST to play...cant wait to see where the devs take this in a year!

Comrades, please tell me how to use devices for false purposes? I did not find where to install them on the boat.
I also wanted to know after receiving improvements available at the start in the headquarters assignments, would there be any new improvements?

"Device for false purpouses"

Does that mean "decoys"?

Bold (a term derived from kobold) was a German sonar decoy, used by U-boats during the Second World War from 1942 onwards. It consisted of a metal canister about 10 cm (3.9 in) in diameter filled with calcium hydride.

Tell me how these devices can be activated.

I just responded for the clarification. It's a funny way of translating. And I only played the game in the first week. I'm not up to speed on using it.

To use the decoy launcher you first have to transfer the decoys into a crew members inventory. It won't show up otherwise. You should then see a 'pill launcher' that you can use towards the rear of the boat near the torpedo tube. It should also show up when you hold down alt even if the selected crew member cannot operate it.

Brought this game a little while ago steep learning curve, especially when under attack.

Looks great latest update looks great too

It does a better job of representing the Uboat life itself,most things are interactive,the interior is very detailed and available,and the crew feels very alive and they have actual needs.

But that's as far as it goes.The gameplay itself is very arcade even with max realism,and the world in which you hunt is just nowhere as dynamic and alive as Silent Hunter.Everything just seems too mission-scripted and pre-determined,and the enemy ship types are way too few.
