I think i saw in the FAQ some time ago that you could control the speed of each propellor independantly. Is this true or was it one of those 'didnt make it into the game' things. Also i thought you could control the dive planes, i have took a look through the manual for it, but didnt find anything.

Yes, the Dev Team said it would be possible to controll the engines seperatly, you didn't imagine it. Just add it to the list of broken "promises". http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Anyway, I hope they add this feature in a patch, it wouldn't be too difficult I would think, just be able to click on the telegraph for each engine http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Furthermore, I would like to see a REALISTIC TELEGRAPH, not the current dumbed-down one. There were screenshots of the FULL telegraph with commands for Diesal engines, electric motors, and commands to dive, surface, and Achtung! for attention. Unfourtunalty, they did not include this telegraph in the final 3d model, and I wonder why? SH 2 had the realistic telegraph, but dive, surface, and Achtung were simply non-functional.

Well, now we have key commands for dive and surface, so it would be nice to see them on the telegraph in 3d. Furthermore, we all want controll of elec/diesal switch, so devs, GIVE US BACK THAT BEAUTIFULL TELEGRAPH!!

THIS ONE>>>

Oh, you are correct again. The Devs said we would have controll of the diving planes and the main dive ballast tank. PUT IT IN THE PATCH!

*edit* Pretty pretty please dev team!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

I would really love it if they did half the things they said they were going to do. Really, everyone keeps praising them for an awesome game.

Is it really that good? Sure i have it, i played it extensively, love it and wouldnt return it - but that doesnt solve the problem of missing features that were "already in the game and working" as i would say it.

Obviously they couldn't get these things in the game for some reason or another. I don't think they said the heck with these features and lets take off and go fishing today instead. Most likely they didn't have the time to finish them and get the game out on time. Personally I'd rather be playing without these features and have them come later in a patch then have had to wait longer to get the game.
But I do want them fixed just the same.

i seem to recall something about them modeling the enigma machine to send messages and something to the effect that it would be very difficult to get these uber patrols where you sink 100k of shipping.
