Detailed instructions on how to access the beta branch can be found at the bottom of this page.
This update includes the full interior of the German type VII U-boat, improvements to player interactions (friends, bans, ignores, etc), leakage effects, new periscope overlays, scales and distance tables, intercom telephones and quality of life improvements.
For this update we would like to give a special shoutout to our group of dedicated testers, without your indispensable support we would still be finding new bugs to fix.
As usual, we want to thank all members of our community for supporting us – your feedback and suggestions are invaluable to us and continuously improve the quality of Wolfpack.
The full interior has been integrated and added to the game, various systems have been or are in the process of being added to the interior, our goal is for the entire interior to serve a larger gameplay purpose rather than just being pretty set dressing.
We’d like to emphasize that this is the first iteration of the interior, and not all interactable systems have been added or integrated yet.
Notably: the engines are lacking functionality as of this time, additional equipment and details will be added to the radio and sonar rooms.
The telephone-style intercoms have been added and integrated in the various compartments to facilitate better and more immersive communications between crew members.
Depth-based leakage effects have been added to the entire interior, this is a system we would like to expand upon in the future.
Periscope overlays, scales and distance tables have been reworked and added.
Brightness sliders have been added to various menus in game. Yay for night missions!
Most of the Wolfpack team will be taking some time off during the coming month, after that work will resume on remaining 0.26 features listed below.
Up next is the fully animated and interactable engines, the new playable engine chief officer, adding the missing equipment and details from the radio and sonar rooms as well as torpedo reloading.
We will elaborate more on update 0.27 in due time, but the main focus will be on improving the ship damage systems, and effects.
Periscope and minor UI scaling issues when playing in aspect ratios taller than standard 16:9 – scaling works correctly in 16:9.
Incorrect click sound effect when using the intercoms.
There’s an issue that can cause a crash to desktop when the host assigns the same role to multiple crew members. To avoid this issue, don’t assign the same role to multiple crew members. (Does not apply to passengers and sailors)
