This thing still on? Been very busy lately but I have a few things on the slowburner. If you haven't heard, some devs from Killerfish (the makers of Cold Waters), operating under the name Triassic Games, have shown off some very interesting tidbits about a new naval warfare sim. Coupled with the steady-as-she goes development of Task Force Admiral there are a lot of naval warfare games to look forward to.



So I figured, in the meantime, I'd scratch that itch by playing through the entirety of Atlantic Fleet's strategic campaign. Here's a little encounter I had a few turns ago between one of my heavy cruisers and a German surface raider...read it about it here:

They both have their charms, I wouldn't personally knock U-boat. Optimization issues with my laptop that I neither have patience nor stomach to deal with and sort out have rendered it unplayable for me for now but there's a lot to be said for its crew management, which is very much an after thought in SHIV.

In terms of firing solutions, damage models, missions and escort AI, I'd give the edge to the Silent Hunter series - with one of the many mega mods. U-boat is much more playable out of the box, given that it's an early access game.

There's a part 2 to come later in the week. It's been frustrating taking screenshots at night, I may have to turn gamma up in game, even post-editing doesn't make things much better. Which is problematic because day-time attacks are asking for trouble. Case in point:
