Default I finally found the activation for support.

If you haven't found it yet it is the blue pencil on the lower left with the rest of the navigation hardware.

Select the pencil and go to an airport and click on that. It will give you a radius of support and it will allow you to plot the direction where you want air support and a radius at which the support will work. When I used it I was at the end of the radius and lost the patrol plane that was checking the area for me. I'm sure if you are within the search area you will get a report.

....

German campaign or US one? Crew abilties are easily modded into the US game. Captain abillties seem to be hardcoded to the German side, unless i missed something. But i tried like hell to get them to work, and nada, no dice.

I'm on my 6th or 7th patrol with the US and have noticed that my crew is gaining abilities like they used to in 1.4. But I cannot ever find a sailor in port with an ability. I guess, since the Germans start so late in the war, this is why they appear in port on the U-Boat side. (???)

Ok!

After playing a number of successfull patrols I gained the AUX cruiser support.

Do anyone know if there will be better ships available for naval support?

Or what will happen next?

I was kind of hoping that you could call in some Jap destroyers for back-up. Maybe at higher ranks the Japanese will render assistance?

After playing some more, I was able to dispatch pocket battleship actually. I attacked a large british task force, and requested assistance. The destroyers were after me for a long time, when suddenly the pocket battleship appeared and sank 3 destroyers.

I'm also able to send out aircraft from small aircraft carrier taskforces around on the map.

If the ships are sunk, there will be a red cross over the aircraft or battelhip icon, which means you are noe able to use them before the patrol is ended and you have started a new patrol.

That's cool. Are we talking about Japanese or German surface vessels (other than the Aux. Cruisers)?

IIRC the Devs stated that the Captain's Special Abilities to call for Air/Naval support could be added to the U.S. Pacific Campaign via an easy mod addition.

If it was hardcoded I doubt the Devs would have stated as such?

It was listed officially with the additions to the addon... I'll try to dig up the quote.


Here it is:


Quote:
4. Are the strategic support elements available only for the new German campaign?
As of now the strategic support features are available only for the new German campaign in U-Boat Missions. However, there is nothing stopping enterprising modders from adding it to the U.S. campaign.

Now, where are all those "ENTERPRISING" Modders out there!!!!!!
