I'm very very pleased to see that a co-op play mode has been put in the game. I think this feature alone has sold the game to me and probable 4,5 of my friends. I can think on nothing greater than to get a wolfpack together for a hunt on the high seas. I was wondering about the options for this mode. Will you be able to play all of the single player mission in the co-op mode? I assume there will be a "create a hunt" mode for the co-op? Just wanting a bit more detail about this type of play. Thanks,
Long Live Prussia!

I'm probably the only person interested in the idea but the reason i am looking forward to the co-op mode is for boat racing.

I'm looking forward to it also. I want to play some convoy battles that last a day or 2 or RT.

I wonder if you will be able to save Multiplayer Missions.

Have all the uboats start 200nm from convoy except for contact boat. Or have them all deployed in a screen line.

Bugger all this canned "Instant" convoy bashing!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/smileys-gun2.gif

I want to get together with my close buds, and game online, in real time, from "Port To Port"!
(Ingame, multiplay save essential!)

Though i seriously doubt the Dev's will even think of that, let alone impliment it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif

ya,it was up on there boards not so long ago about a round the world boat race,you cant circumnavigate the world in sh2 but i think you can in sh3.A be the first man(officially) to sail around the world boat race.

You probably couldnt do it online but you could do some races online,take screen shots to prove you were there etc.or have a referee at one end of the lap.Its should be a few more miles onto the game anyway.

Cool! First thing to do is scout out the route for it. How about the 'Round the World' relay? I'd be happy to try! Got to see if it could be done first. Refuelling seems to be the problem if we make it to the Pacific (unless we could pull into our Japanese ally ports). Maybe with the release of my wishful thinking 'COMPLETE EDITOR' we could take a TypeXIV with us! Or just drop some bouys in a pattern for a racetrack. Who knows?

youre on,if somebody doesnt make a mission with milcows on route we will have to play it with unlimited fuel,and limited torps(you might want to shoot the guy just ahead of you),

I suppose you could always have one of your guys up ahead hiding to ambush your competition.maybe if you have mines you can lay them behind you to slow the opposition.

One of these days i will understand it all.

It would be great fun. If you got lucky the UBout leading the race would be sunk by a DD alowing you to win the race. Theres only one flaw it couldnt a speed race because unless the Ubouts are a differnt class your max speed will be the same as the other Ubout you are racing. It would have to be "find the quickist way around the world."
Have a tonnage race. assgin Ubouts to differnt areas. Everybody leaves the same port at the same time and returns to the same port on the same date. Who ever sunk the most tonnage is the winner.

run slient run deep!

Boat race around the world does indeed sound kind of fun. I wasnâ't aware that you could circle the globe in this game. If there is a previous post about question regarding this feature, someone please direct me. What kinds of options will this open up? Can you attack the Panama Canal? Can you stop in Japanese and Neutral ports for resupply? Can the Japanese navy be of any help? So many cool new things to contemplate. Any thoughts or direction?

Long live Prussia!

Unknown about all of these. Just wishfull thinking on our parts. Absolutely nothing has been said about any of this by anyone but us, but it would be great, wouldn't it? The DevTeam did say that they would like to continue on to the Pacific theatre, so maybe they have that side of the world already modelled too.

Can't point you to any specific post, since there were many and they were spread out. Keep reading through the posts and you'll find them.

You want a WWII u-boat sim to simulate Japanese ports, now that is really pushing it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif since almost none arrived overthere. IMHO it would be a waste of dev-team time to add Japanese ports.

Excuse me, but the DevTeam said that they were interested in doing something in the Pacific(a waste of time, huh? Make sure you tell them that next live chat, will you?), there 'were' Japanese ports there, the Japanese were allys of the Germans, and both 'did' have subs visit each other, etc, etc.

Macker33 was the first to ask about circumnavigating the globe that I remember. And it was something I had been wanting to do since the original SilentService(what, 20 years ago?). The DevTeam has said it 'wants' to do the Pacific. So they 'could' have modelled it already(there's always the PA team to come to the rescue. They'll do it if no-one else does). And I already stated it was 'wishful' thinking.

What's wrong, mad because you weren't invited? Well here's an invitation.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v325/hauitsme/flowers.gif Same to anyone else that wants it too.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v325/hauitsme/box2.gif

they probably have the pacific coasts done but its probably a bit bare,hopefully sh4 will be pacific based,it maybe a case of first things first,finish the atlantic and med and see about the pacific later on,

still it would be no harm if they stuck in a few markers,a geisha house(?)where tokyo and kobe are going to be,a few buildings where sydney or singapore are going to be,then when they have time to do so they can work on that part of the world,maybe we will get a 100mb patch like sturmovik players are used to getting.
the mind boggles at the stuff that can be included in the game.

OT.I cant remember where people were talking about easter eggs but i would like to see the flying dutchman or the mary celeste.
