By writing a custom mission generator we could have entire campaigns running and make sure each capital ship is sunk only once etc. The experience will still be mostly single player, but you'd have a feeling you're part of something bigger. This way anyone can play on their own time and still inter-connect.
SH5 campaign engine works pretty different from the previous versions. No need to write custom missions, its enough to place few generators that will create random traffic. Then you get orders to patrol certain areas where these generators are placed.. pretty easy and cool.

But im not sure I understand how you wanna implement this idea. The player get a patrol area order from Bdu, he use TC to get there and sink stuff. How is this MP? Or the same message and map will be broadcasted to everyone online at that time?

Starting with v6.8.0 of my UIs mod I encode information related to the player's sub (speed, depth, CO2, O2, fuel, battery, position, etc.) into their ship's journal every hour (hour is the default value in the options file). How can we use this information for your idea posted above? Do you need the information in a specific format or

If others have ideas as to using this information I'm encoding in the ship's journal for something please post your ideas in my UIs mod thread.

The way the game should have been done is , if i am playing single player and request help then someone or multiple people can join and it becomes multiplayer . My campaign achievments go to me . Or i can get a request and help someone else . If a player leaves unexpectedly then an AI sub takes over . The main stumbling block would be everyone who joins would have the same mod list and tards .
