Hi everyone.....had a quick question....is there any sub AI at all? I know that some mods allow you to see other subs, but has UBI programmed any AI for attacks?

Just wondering, 'cause if there is sub AI, then wouldn't it be possible to program AI subs to form wolfpacks, etc, during campaign mode? I'm kind of thinking there isn't, because I'm guessing someone already would have tried this if it were possible....also, if one were crazy, one could add U-Boats to the British roster and actually have U-Boat vs. U-Boat competition...if there is none, what if we gave them Armed Trawler AI? The gun loadout and speed is somewhat similar, and I read in a previous post that most sub to sub battles happened on the surface anyway.

Thanks,

-Jeff

They didnt have time, and this is the games BIGGEST dissapointment.

Thanks to the lack of sub AI...

no milkcows for refueling
no wolf packs
no other uboats out there but your own
no enemy subs

The uboats you see in mods will be docked for decoration, thats all non human controlled subs can do in SH3.... sit there.

I'd hoped they would add it in an expansion, but the chances of that actually happening are looking worse by the day.

Most people here have already given up hoping or even caring if theres and expansion for SH3, but for me, if there is no announcement by the 4th quarter, then I'll be 100% sure thats its not gonna happen.

One thing I dont get, if SH3 is popular enough to seal the announcement of SH4, how is it not popular enough to get the add on treatment?

Hi JU88....I wonder if its possible to paste Armed Trawler AI onto sub files.....I know it won't really be correct, but it would be cool to at least have subs on the surface that could attack.....albeit, no torpedos of course, since it appears the only thing that can shoot torps are human controlled subs! I'm going to attempt it....wish me luck.

Hi JU88..thanks for the tips....until they release the code (probably a LONG way off), it will be hard....

I just tried a little bit, and I can make the game crash to desktop when accessing the museum portion! WOOHOO http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif
