There is still the dream about a hyper realistic subsim, with the whole world as a map and 100% historical accuracy, developed with unreal engine 5

Anyone else find that after the recent patches, the merchants spot you way too easily.



Ex. Night, wind at 14 knots, my boat is surfaced heading 225 deg towards funnel smoke. I get just close enough to see on the map it is a single ship but not clearly enough to make a visual even with a helper. Based on my map plots she's heading about 20 deg. I estimate AOB at about 35 starboard.


Next thing I know, before I'm even fully within clear sight range, it makes a 180 and tears off at fast speed.


This has happened at least twice. No way she can see me in those conditions when I can't really see her clearly to even make an ID on the UZO. I think if I went to periscope that soon, I'd lose the intercept.


Maybe I'm just trying to play this like SH3, SH4 and SH5.

Same here, it's like the AI has superpowers. I had a couple of situations where I was at periscope depth in the middle of the night waiting for a convoy to pass by so I could make an identification on some freighters, well I could not even identificate the flag because suddenly the destroyers of the convoy turned to my direction an tried to hunt me down. This happens quite a lot.

seeing that most of my attacks are on the surface at night from within just a few hundred yards i cannot say i have experienced this.

Could this be a case of all-to-visible exhaust smoke, from your sub?
The sim offers ways to reduce that.

SHIII however, in its stock form, was super promising, but it took modders, specifically the GWX team to turn it into a whole other animal.

Uboat is in the same space right now.

what i like about Uboat the most... is that thing that hasnt been conceived of yet.

I quite like UBoat, and I think that it will eventually develop into a masterpiece. The potential is certainly there, and it seems to be headed in a good direction.

I have no doubt about it...
But the problem is that there is a lot to correct already..
We still have to wait a very long time...
you can believe me I'm patient but it's relatively long.. so let's wait and see if the jewels will shine..

I only have a couple of hours into it. I have started the tutorial, really. I am not a big fan of 3rd-person sims.

As far as I know you are able to play the whole game in first person mode, which i think is quite a challenge if you want to manage the whole boat.

UBOAT is becoming the game I wished SH5 was and all the other SH games could have been. For the first time in my four years of playing SH5, SH4, and SH3; I uninstalled the games to focus on UBOAT.

I'm most likely gonna reinstall SH3 though when the new GWX mod comes out. Looking forward to it!!!!!!!

On the downside, I feel like UBOAT can get a bit repetitive at times. Maybe some more side missions would be better. Perhaps maybe more ways to interact with your crew?


Also, I can't wait to see how the ports will get revamped in further versions.

The nice-feature is the player can choose his play mod style: First-person , third-person, or a combination. I personally like the challenge of first-person
