i was wondering , can the dev team show us some home-comming footage . or maybe some screenshots? i,m really exited how this feature will look like and i think a lot of the community does . i mean next to the crew management this might be a feature that has never been adressed with so much depth in any other subsim before.

Yes, I am curious about that, but what really new to say?

A good homecoming footage, AoD style, with improuved graphycs and a larger militar band waiting for us, maybe.

I hope that damaged subs will look different from undamaged ones.

negative . the dev team stated that the home-comming will be in full 3-d now and not in a pre rendered 2-d way . just read the dev dairy on this . i wanne see what ik looks like by now with my own eyes. this time we either get town in by a tug , or do it our-selfs but its not sure yet.

I want a lot of http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif hot girls http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif waiting for us. It would be nice if some of them could flash us, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Would be kinda cool if Donitz was waiting for us if we accomplished a particularly dangerous or special mission. I have always wanted to meet him. So this could be my chance.

Maybe someday we could MOD any kind of homecoming we wanted, with http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif hot girls http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif, special music, maybe a DJ or something.

Would be nice if the homecomings could vary slightly from patrol to patrol too, so its not the EXACT same homecoming each and every time.

I would like to be able to simulate the bar scene from the beginning of Das Boot. I would roleplay the Thomsen character - drink heaps, get legless, throw up, and do rude impersonations of Churchill and Hitler. Then I'd pass out in the toilet. It would be great!

Of course, most simulation-creators don't have the time to create features that simulate the off-duty aspects of a commander's life. A commander's exploits in bars and nightclubs may eventually become part of U-Boat simulations, but I doubt it will be in the near future. A shame.

For commander's exploits in bars and nightclubs, and other aspects of off-duty life, the best reference book isn't the famous "das boot" but "sharks and little fishes" by Ott.

An interesting, hard, book, with lot of suggestions available for the development of an u-boot officer's life simulation; it shows even a bloody ambush by french partisans.

Beeryus, maybe you can more easily simulate the scenes by going out?

I'd like to put a deck gun shell of two into the crowd just to see what would happen. Then I'd open up with the AA gun.
Do heads and arms float? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Hehe. Me too, although I've had to cut down on my alcohol intake in my 40s - alas, no more 10AM-start drinking binges for me. My stomach can't take it anymore.
