I'm afraid so. That's all I heard, so I thought I'd share it. I'm as anxious as anyone here to know what it's all about - and I'll be just as disappointed as anyone here if nothing is announced.

Interesting! Certainly a well produced trailer, all except at 35 seconds in, when a caption appears that reads "The stool Tide is coming" perhaps that got lost in translation! (Steel tide anyone?)

Anyhoo, can't wait personally. Does this mean there will be a new SH4 forum??

Cheers VK, nice one. Keep it coming!

I hope the Coningtowers are changeable. Thoes in the screenshots are the Pre-war vairents.

Subsim: Now, I know that actual work on the game is in the early stages so there may be features that are planned but do not make the game. With that in mind, what new features are you planning for SH4? Additional compartments? More engineering functions? New crew interaction and management activities?

SH4 Dev Team: First of all, crew management will have a different approach. We€ll go into detail on another occasion but it will require much less babysitting while still providing interesting choices and give depth to the men "powering" your submarine. It€s based on three watches system, a simplified version of what was in theory taking place onboard US fleet boats of the time.

YEA!!!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Subsim: Which class of US subs are planned to be included?

SH4 Dev Team: The main types of subs we€re putting in are P-class, Salmon, Tambor and Gato. Obviously, the variations of these classes will be represented in detail, as with SH3.

What no Balao, Trench, or S-Classes? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Wilhelm - have you got any photos of WW2 US Navy torpedoes we could see, so we can compare them to the torp in the SH4 trailer?

08-23-2006, 02:02 PM
In the 'Key Features' section of the SH4 website, it says this about the single player game:

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c188/VikingG/singleplayer.jpg

"15 maps" - is that referring to the Career game?

08-23-2006, 02:18 PM
in regards to the stool tide ---

that's a font issue in the trailer. The letter "e" is not clear enough to show that it's a "e" instead it looks like an "o". Other captions show that clearly.

funny as heck, but no typos there....

Thanks for explaining that, i was worried about the term 'Stool Tide'. As a surfer of many many years, when I was a mere lad & spent many long days on my board, the toilet became an issue. The more inventive ones came up with the 'Aqua turd', or more commonly known as the 'Stool Tide'. Perhaps Ubi should consider altering the font.

Dream on guys, thats why they produce these things.

The key features sound like a re-wording of SH3 promos.

Should be called a "Teaser", not "Trailer"

"Tease"..."tantilise, torment, continually irritate. To bait another person so as to aggravate them with a wilful distortion of facts."
