I recently decided to give WAC a try. I have been playing GWX and GWX-TA since I started playing the game. I noticed that WAC has more harbor traffic than GWX or at least it seems this way. I was wondering if there was a patch or mod that cut back some of that harbor traffic that worked with WAC. My computer handles it but seems like it is struggling sometimes. I just want to ease the burden a little. And I just want to say to those of you who worked on the WAC, GWX, and GWX-TA mods, you did a great job, looks fantastic, and I appreciate your hard work on the mods.

Your not the only one mate, less harbour traffic would be nice, great mod, love WAC 2.15 but the Harbour traffic is too much even on a top end pc.

And with WAC there's the added hazard of a small merchant ship passing in front of your dock just as you exit. Or at least it does for me. I assume you'd sink if you hit it by sailing by just using your charts and not looking from the bridge.

War Ace indeed adds alot of harbour traffic, even ai subs moving around. I generaly follow the sweeper out to clear home base(s). I think, part of the extra traffic is not just for eye candy but added challenge of manuvering your boat and not just plotting a course and hitting t/c. Also the new convoy/traffic system might have somethign to do with it.
I have asked hans about some options for older pc/graphics cards for 3.0, we'll see what develops.

Even with the extra traffic, WAC remains a favourite of mine, a wonderful mod indeed, all is fine once clear of the harbour, a worhwhile pain.

The mod is great so are the other ones out there. With that increase in harbor traffic, I've already ran into some ship. I forget what it was, but it was bigger than tug boat. I think it was a small merchant. Anyway, I kept waiting to hear damage reports from all over, but did not sustain any damage much to my surprise. I was running ahead standard and hit him broadside. However, I'm not so sure I would be as lucky the next time around.
