Would it be ethical to modify the config files so neutral ships are worth renoun? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

With unrestricted submarine warfare, one would think that sinking a 20,000 ton ocean liner would be recieved just as well whether it was American or English if it was traveling in the same convoy with enemy ships.

I was just curious becuase the neutral 20,000 ton ocean liners and the three or four neutral C3s that tend to travel in enemy convoys annoy me to no end.

Make a test mission in single player and see what happens. Set the settings for early in the war. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

"Unrestricted" U-boat attacks should depend on year.

Early on, Neutral ships had a specific code of sorts to follow, with regards to markings and behavior. Both sides made use of phoney neutral markings, as well

Didn't BdU issue directives about Neutrals travelling in convoy?

I'm reasonably sure that any neutral ship sailing in a convoy was considered fair game. This aspect of the game really needs to be modded. Someone complained that he lost renown for sinking an American C2 sailing in a British convoy in 1941 - with a cargo of tanks, no less.

Probably my biggest complaint is looking at the three American C3s loaded with airplanes. Hmph.

I modded the Basic.cfg so I got prestige for sinking neutrals. I just have to be careful I don't sink a "friendly" neutral. Not many of them left at this point in the game, though.
