Out of boredom and driven by the fact that no one has built a damn decent submarine yet, I took it upon myself to do so.
So I present… DAS BOOT(The Boat [A U-Boat])
* I have listened to the feedback, and I have fixed the unreal jerky movement with realistic, sluggish and smoothed/slowed ones. * I have added a nice little roll feature, that when surfaced, the boat will roll back and forth with the swell * I have completed the deckgun, and torpedo systems * Added lots of pretty sounds! * Added crash dive and emergency surface features! * I made the conning tower more realistic, and painted the keel!
Please note that the current version is buggy as hell, and I should have it up and release worthy by tommorrow. Also, sorry for the terrible video quality, last time I ever use WMM. The video showcases it’s newest features…
It’s decently sized!
It has a fully working holographic periscope!
It has a fully working holographic snorkel!
It uses resources to work!
It keeps perfect depth!
It moves realistically!
It auto balances to make depth maintenance simple and automatic!
It has NO WEAPONS
I’m going to start working on weapons for this. My older version that I WAS going to release had a deck gun, but I scrapped that because it looked like shit.
Pitch Adjustment - W/S
Forward - Space
Slow and Stop - Shift
Turning - A/D
Periscope - Alt (Toggle)
Snorkel - R (Toggle)
When surfaced, or the tip of the snorkel isn’t submerged, it will use fuel to move. Run out and your stuck with your batteries. Max surface speed is about 15 knots.
When fully submerged without the snorkel, you will start to drain your batteries! Surface or be within snorkel depth to start recharging them. Max submerged speed is about 7 knots.
More sounds (Random ambient noise and orders)
Emergency Dive / Blow ballast tanks
