Default Version 0.19 - Bots

Hello everyone!

We are now releasing the bot features we've
been working on the past month. The addition
of bots will make the game more
single player friendly by allowing you to control
the U-boat from a dashboard interface.

Bots are activated on a per server basis in
the lobby menu.
To access the bot interface in game, click the
mouse wheel, or press F1-F3 for individual bots.
Bots play crew members that do not have a player.
If a player logs in, the corresponding bot is deactivated. There is no captain bot.



Use the helmsman interface (F1) to set the speed, heading and rudder angle. The helmsman bot will notify you if the battery level is low



The torpedo data computer may be controlled via the helmsman interface.



The hydrophone and the radio are available in the radio man interface (F2). The radio man bot will notify you of radio messages as well as hydrophone contacts.



The dive officer interface (F3) allows you to set the U-boats depth by entering a desired value. Use the automated quick commands for diving, surfacing, emergency dive and for maintaining periscope depth. The dive officer bot will notify you if the compressed air supply is low.



Patch notes:


Added bots. Press the middle mouse button, or F1-F3 to activate the bot menus.
Added scalable menu cursors.
Added overlay to distance table to make it easier to use.
Added quick encounter option.
Outgoing telegraph messages are now logged.
Added indoor zoom.
Increased time between fired salvo shots to 2.3 seconds.
Added bearing indicator to UZO
Reloading torpedo tubes now depletes compressed air.

Selecting the Close Encounter option will place your starting position in a random spot where the convoy is coming towards you, give or take 90 degrees. Essentially, check this and you are not forced to perform a lengthy end around run to get in front of the convoy. Should you wish to start a mission with a chance of needing to do an end around, leave this unchecked.

When using the hydrophone interface, you can click on the speaker icon to "put the headphones on", and click again to "take them off".

When a U-boat sends a radio message, it will be received by any U-boats surfaced or above 12m.
A U-boat below 12m will not get the message, and it is not "saved" for them when they surface; they missed the message.

Quick tip for playing solo but leaving the door open for any other players to join your battle in their own U-boat.

Select the Worldwide option and then select New Lobby

|
|
|

Lobby settings "Visible to Everyone" and no password. This way other captains are able to see your battle and join...


|
|
|

Then choose your boat and take the Captain role, and enter a password here.
This will prevent any other player from joining you in your boat. Using the bots,
you will be able to fight your submarine like a pro.


|
|
|

If any captains decide to join your battle, they will do so in their own sub, and not
interfere with the operation of your sub. You will see a note when another player joins
your battle but you will only be able to communicate with him (or them if 3 guys join
your battle) through the u-boat radio interface, which gives the whole experience a
touch of mystery and intrigue. You're fighting the convoy, and there are other u-boats
in your wolfpack, giving the escorts fits. You may hear their torpedoes when they hit!

The good thing about this version of the game, if players join and leave, it really doesn't
have much of an effect on you.

Bot tips thread started.

To update Wolfpack, make sure you have auto updates enabled, when you start the game it should download and install. You will see .19 on the main menu.

Hola Simmunist,

On the game MP lobby setup screen:
1. do not immediately choose "Tutorial"
2. tick the "Enable bots" box first
3. and then choose Tutorial

The Tutorial will then launch with bots enabled.

Cheers,
Lost

Default Dive Bot

One note about the Dive Bot. It is very good at holding depth, even when firing torpedoes. But currently, if you need to go deep in a hurry, the Dive Bot does not currently use the negative tank -- you have to manage that yourself.


Other things to note:
You must manage the compressed air.
Helm Bot will not switch to Diesel upon surfacing.
