Ok, im still pretty new. Here are my questions:

1: On the navigation map, what do the colors of the ships represent? I can figure out what red means http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. But what do the other colors mean?

2: When looking through the periscope/UZO those little triangles that apear when you have your cross hairs over a ship, what do the colors represent there?

3: Am i supose to sink Nuetral ships, if so, what color are they on the map/periscope/UZO?

Thanks for indulging me.

Map : red is enemy, green is neutral, blue is friendly

Triangles : difficulty of shot - green good, then yellow, then orange, then red is basically impossible (like shooting someone behind you with a forward tube)

Neutrals : they are only green on the map. On the UZO and scope, you have to see the flag to see if its enemy. In convoys, be sure you are not shooting torpedoes at neutrals - compare their ship type or position on the map to what you see in the scope/uzo.

Okay, by the time I finish I'll probably be too late!!

1. Blue are friendly, and green are neutral.

2. For the coloured triangles, red means the gyro angle is much too great and you have no chance in hitting the target. Orange means you have a chance in hitting your target but still a greater chance missing. Green means that you are within a small gyro angle and have the greatest chance in hitting your mark.

3. You are not supposed to sink neutral ships. They will show up green on your map. However through the periscope and UZO the only distinguishing factor will be their flag.

Happy hunting!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


Edit: LOL, yep too slow!

For that, you will have to know your ww2 history. At first, it will be UK, france, and poland.

Have any ww2 history books??

Im pretty fluent in WWII stuff, i know the major players in the war, but nto too sure on the small countrys. Plus i also dont know the flags by heart. Well, besides the union jack and the american flag, is france's flag just a plain white flag?

those are the historic declarations of war/invasion dates.

whether the game follows it that close, i dont know but i would assume it does.

would be nice if we would get radio messages telling us who are new enemies are......
