“Hello everyone!
This week we have finished work on the new radio system. The new system has two modes: Simplified and advanced. The mode is set in the lobby settings before starting the game. In simplified mode, players type in messages using the keyboard, but unlike before, the message can be typed out in full, without having to pause between each letter while it is being sent. In advanced mode, the morse key functions like it does in real life. Players will have to learn morse code in order to use this system. The new system uses fixed receive channels for each U-boat. Channel 1 is used to broadcast to all U-boats.

Other changes:
The diesel engine now stops working at 8 meters.
Increased underwater friction when running diesel engines.
Enemy ships are now more prone to ramming U-boats.
Periscopes can now be damaged by collisions.”
