Naval War; Arctic Circle

Hi,

I've been looking at this game on Steam, and before that, keeping an eye on some of the preview material, I keep going back and forth on buying it, does anyone have any ideas as to what it's like to play? any good?

Cheers,

IMO, it's a click-fest. I find the UI very hard to use when you have many units. It is very difficult to select the one you want. At this time, there are many of us who simply cannot play the game due to freeze-up bugs. To me, the game is very simplistic.

I hear it's OK. It's really only for people hardcore into RTS who want a naval war sim. It has lots of customization, but not much chance to use it all in a mission.

The editor has been released:

Mission Editor for Naval War: Arctic Circle Released!
+ New Trailer

Dominate Your Enemies Above, Upon and Beneath the Open Seas.
Change the Future Again.

Stockholm, JUNE 8th 2012 - With your mastery of the seas assured and your control over the world's most powerful weapons amply demonstrated, it is time for the student to now become the teacher - time to design new challenges and new scenarios as others prepare for war at the top of the world.

Paradox Interactive and Turbo Tape Games today announced that it will support the mod community with today's release of the new mission editor for Naval War: Arctic Circle.

The mission editor is added for free to all gamers and the greatest ships that ever sailed the seas can now be given new orders and assigned new missions as you devise new ways to test the limits of men and machines: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/browse?appid=200050

To celebrate the occasion a new trailer has been released!

Watch the new Naval War: Arctic Circle Trailer here:



Naval War: Arctic Circle is a real time naval wargame set in the near future that uses accurate profiles of Atlantic powers, their ships and aircraft. With the mission editor, you get access to all units in the game, and the ability to create your own missions anywhere in the North Atlantic Ocean. Steam Workshop enables fluid sharing of your custom missions with other players.

Join the Official Steam Workshop Group for the latest news and announcements about the Steam Workshop.
I hope this gives NW a boost. The lack of an editor was one of the weakest links in this game.

I also hope we see some Pacific scenarios one day, even in an expansion. I would be much more interested in a hypothetical Sino - Et Alia war scenario than the game's stock Cold War Redux campaign.

The game continues to freeze up for many users. The addition of an editor is moot since we cannot play the game.

I wasn't aware of that. Paradox really needs to have better quality control when they release a title.

Any word from the devs on this issue?

Yup.

"We cannot seem to replicate it on our end and are trying to set up systems that will reproduce the problem."

They've been saying that for months and the problem is reported by folks using XP, Vista, and Win7. So, it isn't specific to one system. They may be sincere in their efforts, but that's irrelevant if they cannot solve the problem.

In direct response to multiple requests from various Naval War: Arctic Circle players for assistance:

Is there anyone who is playing this game who has it work seamlessly? Like no lock ups at all, the ability to use time compression at will and have it work properly without causing freezes etc?

A new video for "NWAC Bug avoidance techniques" has been added the YouTube Harpoon for Dummies channel to help players navigate the complexities of the game and to deliver the best possible playing experience.
