Uboat game

UBOAT from Deep Water Studio

Anyone own or play this game? It's on sale and was wondering if it's worth it?

I've been following its progress. Might check it out eventually. Still playing SH3 and 4 modded out.
There must also be a flyable computer available for Nefarious to do FSO. So he doesn't keep talking about it for eight and a half hours on Friday night!

Some of the people from our old Bigweek newsgroup have investigated this, and find it interesting.

Based on their reports, it would be wise to retire from your job and file for divorce before committing to this sim.  Seems to be a full-time project to get good at it, along with the other people who are crewing your sub.

As an example, Fidd (some of you remember him - Englishman) says that he went several scenarios until he could always remember to close the conning tower hatch before the boat went underwater.

Ok. That MIGHT be the SIM I'm looking for. You say SEVERAL players can operate in a single SUB? Like me and my boys could man several stations?  :x

Have you checked out 'Cold Waters' also? Set in the cold war era, been a fun sub game on steam.

I used to play the CRAP out of the original Silent Service.

I always wanted to make a WWI sub game where you used a manual targeting wheel to calculate your firing solutions. 

And Q-ships!

2 or 3 days to get to an objective  :aok
