Anothe new U-boat sim
« on: August 11, 2019, 11:42:10 AM »
I did a search and couldn't find a previous thread so...

Check out the web site for a really detailed sim.   http://www.uboatsim.com/

and here's his YT site with several dev logs.   https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpAHLYjMxLVj6LJ4OOYw3_A

It seems to be a single developer so that's a bit concerning.

Looks like he's been very busy, even if it is only one person.

I would kill for a modern WWI uboat sim.

Wait, is this WW1??  :bd:


Next up, American Civil War submarine simulator! -- the Turtle Strikes!

(Or maybe blockade runners, which were almost submarines, and impressed Jules Verne enough he wrote a whole novel on them!)
Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Strategic Werewolf Axe-chopping Simulator video AAR!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

No. Appears to be WWII. He is modeling the type VIIC.

Has a looooong way to go. Wish him lots of luck.

They did a WWI sub sim a few years back, Shells of Fury.  Sadly wasn't very good.

I had Shells of Fury. It wouldn't run, just crashed. If I run across it in my oldies box I might try it again under emulation. Who knows?

There was another sim a while back called Enigma: Rising Tide that had you crew either a PT boat, sub, or a frigate (or maybe a destroyer).
it was set in an alternate timeline and had you fight for either the USA, the Kaiser, or the League of Nations.

Yeah I never bought Shells of Fury because of the not so great reviews. It's still available through GoG I believe.

I always wondered about that game, a sub sim with torpedoes named, 'Shells' of Fury.  ???

I care to notice that Shells of Fury would be a great title for a game centered on the way my organism deals with spicy seafood too.
But as you might soon notice, I am not very good at titles myself  :-[

Gun kills in ww1 would have been much more common than torpedoe ones.

I actually have Enigma, but (as with many things) I never got around to trying to play it. Or maybe I tried once, but at the time my rig couldn't effectively handle it.

Not GoG but Gamersgate. No save during mission killed it for me.

^That’s it. And now that you mention it I wonder if the no save game issue still exists. I will take a guess that it does.

I have not played in a while but it was an old game when I bought it so doubt there were any updates to the missions.

This kills any game for me.  How can a developer not understand that not everyone can devote hours to a single session?
