Interesting view. Would you pleasae elaborate a bit on which features you deem unnecessary, and what makes the game at its current state unplayable?

Default Weekly update

Hello everyone! Don't miss the Q&A on Discord February 7:th 17-22 GMT.
If you have questions regarding the project we'll be there to answer them.
This week I've continued modeling the U-boat's new compartments.
Koji is working on the new merchant ships and Axel is working on expanding the net code.

Oscar is working on the new water asset. Here is a video showing some work in progress.

The waves look much improved.

Was going to say that the scale looked a bit off but the latest images are excellent. They have a realistic, "ripply" look that truly imitates actual wave structure - instead of the basic ripples in older games like Silent Hunter 3.

A few flecks of foam maybe would be icing on the cake! I've noticed that you can get whitecaps/foam on the water even in relatively light winds, IMO it would be a nice touch.

It would be interesting if sea-state played a role in ship damage; in WWII when a ship was hit, high seas would often progressively worsen damage. Bulkheads would collapse and damage control was more difficult ... I read of one case where a tanker (MV Sitala) snapped completely in half when she got caught in a gale after being torpedoed.

Looks glorious !
Will the sea state have an impact on the sub's visibility -- as seen from a convoy / DD perspective ?
The heavy seas are clearly going to bring realism to the hunt. Tracking and ID'ing a target will be much more of a challenge but can we expect the enemy to also "suffer" in rough seas ?

Cheers,
Lost

Tell Koji thank you for his comments and that I have submitted replies, including another batch of merchant pictures! Sorry for not noticing he had responded. Fascinating to see this project take shape.

So, it does look pretty good but it also looks positively impossible to gauge the height and distance to ships with these waves. Im sure it looks better, but do the waves actually make it a better game ?

Hey now, don't ask if these kind of seas would be either a) engageable in, or b) enjoyable for the player. I haven't played this game in 7 months.
