Default Sneak Peek - Wolfpack BdU Campaign

Hi All,

Wanted to start a thread to gauge interest levels among current Wolfpack players regarding what I and a few others have been working diligently on these past months. As we all know, Wolfpack is a great simulation, probably the best we have in terms of U-boat systems. Because the game is in such an early stage of development, things such as duds, specific U-boat damage etc are not yet modeled. Our intention with this campaign is to model such things by way of a third-party tool to assist in generating realistic results.

What myself and a few others have been working out is a campaign of sorts, similar to SH3, where skippers and their crews plot a course on a shared map and admin, us, generates results for them as if they were on patrol, including aircraft, single ships, convoys, etc. They get a radio message from admin with Wolfpack settings and then use a shared spreadsheet in Google to fill in the details. Medals, promotions etc. are all there as well. Call it role-playing if you will.

Here is a taste of what we’ve got:

Plotting on Map:


Spreadsheet for Realistic Results:


This is intended to start a discussion and gauge interest in such a thing. We would run it on Subsim here.

Thoughts?

Another thing to note is we do not mandate a minimum crew size. But with mods it is very difficult to run the boat with less than 3!

Distinct advantages go to those who have a well-trained crew though, as follows:

1. Crash dive times are established by boat, and it is advisable to get your boat’s crash dive time down as we are currently simulating aircraft!

2. Skippers can send crewmembers to Admin for “checkrides” on stations. If they pass, the boat gets benefits in campaign. This encourages training and leadership within crews.
