We are now releasing the bot features we've been working on the past month. The addition of bots will make the game more single player friendly by allowing you to control the U-boat from a dashboard interface. Bots are activated on a per server basis in the lobby menu.
To access the bot interface in game, click the mouse wheel, or press F1-F3 for individual bots. Bots play crew members that do not have a player. If a player logs in, the corresponding bot is deactivated. There is no captain bot.
Use the helmsman interface (F1) to set the speed, heading and rudder angle. The helmsman bot will notify you if the battery level is low.
The torpedo data computer may be controlled via the helmsman interface.
The hydrophone and the radio are available in the radio man interface (F2). The radio man bot will notify you of radio messages as well as hydrophone contacts.
The dive officer interface (F3) allows you to set the U-boats depth by entering a desired value. Use the automated quick commands for diving, surfacing, emergency dive and for maintaining periscope depth. The dive officer bot will notify you if the compressed air supply is low.
