Obvious...that I play more for the historical battles. I have found most and RSRD does a much better job than stock.

Have yet to take part of the Battle of the Coral Sea, so that's the next one to find.

Of all the historical battles in the game, which do you think is the most exciting? Obvious when surface ships and planes join the battle is get's intense.

Your fear of cheating is a moot point. History has already revealed what you otherwise would not have known. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
Your're playing RSRD? What happened to TMO? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

RSRD can be played with the supermods. It's not really a mod that changes game play, but changes the campaign layers, more historic TF and convoys, correct ships for the battle groups and spaces ship from each other properly.

By cheating, I would rather use what I historically know and search, rather than just pull the spot and date go there and wait...that's a sure thing and I prefer to leave some chance to it. You get decent battle messages anyway getting you almost to the location.

Though, Leyte, being the grand-daddy of them all, probably holds a slight edge.
