Version 1.06b Released

Version 1.06b is now available.

Crew voices (work in progress) have been added but disabled by default in version 1.05b. To enable them simply open default/hud/default.txt and change LogVoiceVolume=0 to a value between 0-1 for volume.

Major changes:
Torpedo tubes jamming is a little more generous, tubes can now jam at 20+ knots.
Wire breakage re-worked.
Found the last (we hope) of the AI submarine diving bugs, so now there should be no more diving into the sea floor or past crush depth by Soviet subs.
Torpedo homing logic now uses "lag" rather than "lead" logic so that targets being homed on cannot be outside the sensor cone.
Sinking vessels now become less of a target for homing torpedoes over time.
Improved some issues caused by terrain chunk drawing.

Crew voices (work in progress) have been added but disabled by default in version 1.05b. To enable them simply open default/hud/default.txt and change LogVoiceVolume=0 to a value between 0-1 for volume.

1.05b addresses major combat issues, including sunk vessels continuing to use sensors as well as improves campaign stability. It also improves the playing of insertion and land strike missions.

About This Game

After tracking a Soviet landing force bound for Iceland it is time to plan your attack. Do you silently close in to torpedo the landing ships and escape during the resulting chaos? Or strike with long-range missiles but risk counterattack from the enemy escorts? Have you detected them all, could another submarine be out there listening for you? Has the hunter become the hunted? Will you survive the Cold Waters?

Inspired by the 1988 classic “Red Storm Rising”, command a nuclear submarine in a desperate attempt to prevent “mutually assured destruction” when the Cold War gets hot and WWIII begins.

You will be tasked with intercepting convoys, amphibious landings, insertion missions and battling it out with enemy warships, submarines and aircraft. Thankfully, an arsenal of wire-guided torpedoes, anti-ship and cruise missiles and the occasional SEAL team are on board to keep the Iron Curtain at bay.

Major Features:
- Real-time naval combat
- Over 40 classes of ships and submarines all meticulously researched
- Dynamic Campaign where your performance matters
- Realistic sonar model
- Authentic Soviet combat tactics
