    i think if you can get in carriers, and some aircraft that he player must hide from and or shoot down even

    Carriers are already in but yes, air planes attacking you will come.

    just f.y.i. : I experienced the 360° circling freighters after loading / resuming a saved game. They were headed in a certain direction, but on loading they instantly started doing their circles. (downloaded the game 5 days ago, so i assume it's the latest version)

    edit: Forgot to mention that i agree with some of the earlier posts, more sounds would be much appreciated. Diesel-/Electric engines, pings, maybe even some seagulls on the bridge are the ones i'm missing most for immersion.

    Interesting. Thanks for letting me know. I think I'm going to simplify that loading/saving stuff quite a lot. It's incredibly complex at the moment.

    For a PC game it would be much simpler because saving usually would happen at Midway (or any other base) and not within a fight. But on smartphones everything can be interrupted at any time, for instance due to a phone call... But I think this saving needs some rework and will be made easier in the upcoming versions.

    Periscope Bug

    I have a bug to report. I'm running the games on an iPhone 6 with iOS 10.2. Occasionally, when I have a target located with the TBT, and then submerge, I will be unable to update the target information (acquire the green triangle) with the periscope. I can see the target, but the green triangle and target information does not appear, and any torpedoes fires are not aimed at the target. If I surface and use the TBT, I can reacquire the target, but of course I am attacked by the escort, which defeats the purpose of being submerged.

    I also second the previous request to updat the escort AI behavior. I seem to be spotted based on range to the target, even when submerged with all engines stopped. Detection should be based on range, visibility, speed, depth, halocline, and relative movement. It's impossible to sneak up and attack in the middle of a convoy in the game, even though that was a favored tactic of the most successful skippers. Also note that only a few Japanese ships had radar in the war. Refer to Clear the bridge, by Richard O'Kane, or Japanese Destroyer Captain by Taimechi Hara for some great reading, and the USS Pompanito virtual tour for technical information.

    Good job on the game design, pace, and atmospheric effects; I see the Silent Service influence. Others have noted the sound effects "secure from battle stations" was inaccurate, but I'm sure you'll get to those things.

    With regard to war patrol areas and friendly ships posted by another member, subs on patrol could shoot anything that moved, as long as it wasn't a hospital ship. Patrol areas were set aside for each submarine, to help prevent fratricide, and they were alerted if friendly forces were passsing through, but this was rare. There were no friendly merchant ships.

    Thanks for that helpful feedback, much appreciated!

    Regarding the unability to target a ship again. Could it be that you already hit it and it was sinking? Sinking ships are tagged as such "non targets" internally.

    Destroyer behavior will change with the next update I currently work on.

    No I wish. It was a destroyer. I'm trying to attach a screenshot

    i had this problem once that Bimmer is describing, but it was on a mission that was at night so i was thinking maybe it cant target through the periscope at night - which is something i have come across in some other sub games where you cant use it at night - but Bimmers photo changes this, maybe i was encountering a bug also

    I try to fix the problem but i can not reproduce it.
    Is it possible that you go out the running app and come back?
