Hello visitor! A note about the contents of this wiki: Barotrauma is a game with several years' worth history as a free-download open source game, and this wiki has been written primarily based on this legacy version. As such, not all content is relevant to the Steam release. So please wait patiently as the contents are updated, and feel free to contribute new information once the Steam version of Barotrauma is released!
Each crew member is assigned a different job. This job determines how well they excel at certain fields, in addition to giving them unique ID Cards and starting equipment.
New crew members are able to be hired from the shop at each checkpoint. The price and availability of people in each field can vary. Each job is given a range of how good they are certain skills. These can vary as well. The captain is responsible for commanding the rest of the crew and trying to keep everything running smoothly. The captain's ID card provides access to anywhere in the submarine, excluding the personal cabins of the crew.
There can only be a maximum of one captain per-ship. A veteran of Europan seas, this captain either inspires loyalty in their crew or keeps them in line by force. Renegade captains are a thorn in the establishment's side. They use a combination of daring and aggressive maneuvers to keep the Coalition off balance. Captains of the Coalition adhere to a strict set of rules. That doesn't stop them from coming up with new innovations to hunt down their enemies.
Engineers have above-average construction and mechanic skills, but fixing complex mechanical devices is still usually out of their skill set.
They are competent at fixing electrical devices however, and are the ones to turn to when the power grid starts failing. Nuclear engineers are in charge of the sub's reactor. Occupational hazards require them to wear some protective gear against radiation.Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts. Change language. Install Steam. Store Page. Barotrauma Store Page.

Though bots are kinda' dumb and can't handle every sub you find.
Barotrauma Singleplayer Viability Review
There are very few subs that can be efficiently piloted alone without bots. One has to dig deep in the Workshop for one. And we who play with strangers or made friends ingame will be sad to think your are being left out of the fun. Mind you though that despite you being able to give the order to recharge batteries, they won't do it. Apart from that, I've found them to be pretty competent. In my experience the bots do follow orders you give them, but really nothing else.
They suck at defending the sub. You will have to be the security on all sides. I usually let them repair everything.
And do the rest myself. Prydain View Profile View Posts.
Give them orders and they can do just about anything besides fighting things that get inside the sub and fixing leaks in certain spots. I'd also do any medical work yourself since I recently had the AI kill the captain due to injecting him constantly and causing opium overdose.
Usually just have 1 on a gun shooting at will while 1 mans the reactor and the other just auto repairing components. Only other thing to note is that they don't swap oxygen tanks out while using diving suits or masks so if they grab them due to a hull breach, be sure to get them out ASAP or just keep an eye on em.Barotrauma is physical damage to body tissues caused by a difference in pressure between a gas space inside, or in contact with, the body, and the surrounding gas or fluid.
Tissue rupture may be complicated by the introduction of gas into the local tissue or circulation through the initial trauma site, which can cause blockage of circulation at distant sites or interfere with normal function of an organ by its presence. Barotrauma generally manifests as sinus or middle ear effects, decompression sickness DCSlung overpressure injuries and injuries resulting from external squeezes.
Barotrauma typically occurs when the organism is exposed to a significant change in ambient pressuresuch as when a scuba divera free-diver or an airplane passenger ascends or descends or during uncontrolled decompression of a pressure vessel such as a diving chamber or pressurised aircraft, but can also be caused by a shock wave.
Ventilator-induced lung injury VILI is a condition caused by over-expansion of the lungs by mechanical ventilation used when the body is unable to breathe for itself and is associated with relatively large tidal volumes and relatively high peak pressures. Barotrauma due to overexpansion of an internal gas-filled space may also be termed volutrauma. Bats can be killed by lung barotrauma when flying in low-pressure regions close to operating wind-turbine blades.
Gas in the arterial system can be carried to the blood vessels of the brain and other vital organs.
It typically causes transient embolism similar to thromboembolism but of shorter duration. Where damage occurs to the endothelium inflammation develops and symptoms resembling stroke may follow. The bubbles are generally distributed and of various sizes, and usually affect several areas, resulting in an unpredictable variety of neurological deficits.
Venous gas can be admitted to the systemic circulation and become arteriolised by passing through pulmonary or intracardial shunts, bypassing the pulmonary filter. Unconsciousness or other major changes to the state of consciousness within about 10 minutes of surfacing or completion of a procedure are generally assumed to be gas embolism until proven otherwise. The belief that the gas bubbles themselves formed static emboli which remain in place until recompression has been superseded by the knowledge that the gas emboli are normally transient, and the damage is due to inflammation following endothelial damage and secondary injury from inflammatory mediator upregulation.
Hyperbaric oxygen can cause downregulation of the inflammatory response and resolution of oedema by causing hyperoxic arterial vasoconstriction of the supply to capillary beds. High concentration normobaric oxygen is appropriate as first aid but is not considered definitive treatment even when the symptoms appear to resolve.
Relapses are common after discontinuing oxygen without recompression. When diving, the pressure differences which cause the barotrauma are changes in hydrostatic pressure: There are two components to the surrounding pressure acting on the diver: the atmospheric pressure and the water pressure.
This pressure change will reduce the volume of a gas filled space by half. Boyle's law describes the relationship between the volume of the gas space and the pressure in the gas. Barotraumas of descent are caused by preventing the free change of volume of the gas in a closed space in contact with the diver, resulting in a pressure difference between the tissues and the gas space, and the unbalanced force due to this pressure difference causes deformation of the tissues resulting in cell rupture.
Barotraumas of ascent are also caused when the free change of volume of the gas in a closed space in contact with the diver is prevented. In this case the pressure difference causes a resultant tension in the surrounding tissues which exceeds their tensile strength.
Besides tissue rupture, the overpressure may cause ingress of gases into the tissues and further afield through the circulatory system. Breathing gas at depth from underwater breathing apparatus results in the lungs containing gas at a higher pressure than atmospheric pressure.
Explosive decompression of a hyperbaric environment can produce severe barotrauma, followed by severe decompression bubble formation and other related injury. The Byford Dolphin incident is an example.
An explosive blast and explosive decompression create a pressure wave that can induce barotrauma. The difference in pressure between internal organs and the outer surface of the body causes injuries to internal organs that contain gas, such as the lungsgastrointestinal tractand ear.Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts.

But it doesn't seem to have a robust single player option, and this makes me unwilling to consider buying it. I do play multi-player games from time to time, but for the most part these are turn-based PBEM games. I own a couple multi-player co-op games, but they're gathering dust in my game library untried, largely because they lack robust single player options which you need to master the actions required to play the game, if for no other reason.
My other issue which may or may not apply here is that I'm generally unwilling to play with random strangers. There are a few groups outside of Steam that I am associated with, and that from time to time organize group activities.
Barotrauma del oído
Because this would involve playing with people that I actually know and like, I would be quite happy playing with them. But the games that these kind of groups decide to play is often fairly random, and to depend on this kind of group selection for a business model is tantamount to suicide.
If I owned this game and was comfortable with playing it in single player, I might propose it to one of my groups as a group activity. Please note that there are already a couple of ifs in that first sentence, revolving around the fact that the first question I would be asked if I brought Barotrauma up as a possible group game would be 'How does it play'. Without a robust single player experience I can't answer that question.
I really hope the developers take this into account as the game evolves, because Barotrauma looks like it might be fun. I may give it a quick try for less than two hours and then go for a refund if that is an optionbut I'm somewhat skeptical.
Many of us already own more games than we know what to do with, and the idea of buying one more game that will probably never get played and that is a bit on the expensive side for a game you buy on a whim just isn't very appealing. Showing 1 - 2 of 2 comments.
Emil View Profile View Posts. I purchased it a few days ago solely for Singleplayer and am quite happy with it. The AI seems competent enough but if they have trouble doing something you can always take control of them and do it yourself and the campaign is nicely setup with a lot more depth to come later down the line.
Me too they seem decent, i suspect itl be much better as it gets more content this could be a really cool solo game once its done i bet. Per page: 15 30 Date Posted: 26 Feb am.Barotrauma is a side-scrolling role-playing video game developed by Finnish studio Undertow Games and published by Daedalic Entertainment. Barotrauma takes place in the distant future, on a submarine traversing the inhospitable oceans of Europaone of Jupiter's moons.BAROTRAUMA - ОБНОВЛЕНИЕ И НОВЫЙ МОНСТР
The player is assigned a job on the submarine, and must coexist with other crewmen aboard the vessel. Barotrauma largely takes place inside submarines submerged beneath Europa's ocean. At the start of each game, players are assigned a "job", which may provide them access to specialized traits and equipment. The submarine's crew are given a mission, which may involve hauling cargo from one outpost to another, hunting hostile undersea wildlife, or recovering alien artifacts.
The players are then free to act at their own discretion for the duration of the round, with few, if any, additional objectives provided by the game itself. Various hazards will frequently jeopardize the submarine's voyage, such as hostile fauna, parasite outbreaks, and player-controlled traitors. Player incompetence can also be a source of disaster, as improperly-maintained ship equipment such as nuclear reactors or oxygen generators can quickly render the submarine inoperable.
Crisis management is a recurrent theme in moment-to-moment gameplay, as players are implicitly encouraged to use their job skills to both avoid and mitigate disaster. In the event that the submarine's hull is damaged, water will begin to flood the vessel, which damages submarine structures and significantly impedes player movement; without appropriate equipment, a player trapped in a flooded segment of the sub is liable to suffocate, or in areas with high water pressure, be crushed via barotrauma.
As the submarine effectively functions as a lifeline for its crew, an irreparably-damaged vessel often signals the end of a round. Lead developer Joonas Rikkonen cited the online role-playing game Space Station 13 as the biggest single source of inspiration for Barotraumapraising its emergent gameplay and emphasis on human interaction.
However, he also critiqued Space Station 13' s unintuitive user interface and various technical issues; with BarotraumaRikkonen sought to create a game that "built on the foundation of SS13" while "smoothing some of the rougher edges". Rikkonen also drew heavy inspiration from "Pressure", a game concept anonymously posted to 4chan's video games board. Development on Barotrauma began inunder the working title Subsurface.
Following the commercial release, future versions of Barotrauma were made exclusive to Steamand the unsupported free version was retitled Barotrauma Legacy.
Inthe source code for Barotrauma was publicly released under a limited license to facilitate the creation of community mods. InUndertow Games partnered with FakeFish Games to jointly develop Barotraumaturning the solo project into one developed by nearly a dozen individuals. Barotrauma was released onto early access on June 5, Barotrauma was voted "Best hardcore game" at Game Connection Europewhere it was also nominated in three other categories.

Barotrauma of the ear is common. Generalized barotraumas, also called decompression sickness, affects the entire body. Your middle ear includes the eardrum and the space behind it. The only connection between your middle ear and the "outside world" is a thin canal called the Eustachian tube.
This connects your ear with the back of your mouth. When you swallow, you may notice a small click in your ears. This is a bubble of air being moved through the Eustachian tube. These bubbles are constantly moving into the middle ear, where they balance the ear's inner pressure. Ear barotrauma can occur when these tubes become blocked or partially blocked. On an airplane, barotrauma to the ear — also called aero-otitis or barotitis — can happen as the plane descends for landing.
Barotrauma of the ear also can happen when scuba divers descend. The pressure change can create a differential between the outer and middle ear that pushes the eardrum inward.
Welcome to Europa: the history of Barotrauma
This can cause pain and can muffle sounds. Your ear will feel stuffed and you may feel as if you need to "pop" it. In more severe cases of barotrauma, the middle ear can fill with clear fluid as the body tries to equalize the pressure on both sides of the eardrum.
This fluid is drawn out of blood vessels in the lining of the inner ear, and can only drain if the Eustachian tube is open. Fluid behind the eardrum is called serous otitis media. It can create pain and hearing difficulty similar to a middle ear infection. The eardrum can rupture break in severe cases of ear barotrauma, causing bleeding or leaking of fluid from the ear. A ruptured eardrum can result in hearing loss.
