Nice screenies, but you have it all wrong. The german is supposed to be behind the italians in order to keep them advancing.

How do you get that battle going? In all my time playing I've never seen that happen between taskforces - in fact I've never seen a task force or friendly air attaking shipping.

Any ideas why?

it can but it depends on if you mod includes it and if your in the right spot at the right time

This was in a Word Document in the main UBWA folder. These may also be included in GW's .

I normally receive things like this as radio messages (dont know if it is UBWA or Heavy Radio Messages Mod I installed) , and watch them unfold on the Nav Map. It's pretty cool.

god tuddley spreading the word of your new mod you love...meh

tuddley, you make it sound REALLY cool, is the current version of UBWA(?) compadable with GW, the way you talk about it, I MUST HAVE IT!

09-16-2006, 12:04 PM
its not compatible however it is better

09-16-2006, 12:07 PM

11-06-2006, 10:27 PM
Eagle mate, theres an easy way around the compatability issue - run a second install of SH3, and mod that to UBWA! Then, you have the best of both worlds and if you decide you prefer one over the other you can play that one more!

Personally, i'm considering doing this because I can't lose my GW installation (using it for Wolves at War), but I am keen to discover the world of UBWA.
