Rise of Nations: U-BOAT Wolves of the Atlantic
Came across this mod while searching for something else. I think you need RON to play this im just guessing cause of the site, still have RoN somewhere might load her up and try out this mod
Any RoN players here who has tried it
This is a WW2 scenario that focuses in the submarine and Atlantic warfare. 1940. Germany has captured a lot of countries and only British are still free. You are Otto Kretschmer and your objectives are to sink enemy ships that carry goods to England from North America as well as others like insert spys with your U-boats! Germany counts on you to win the war!
The scenario has some surprises which I would not mention and a lot of action.
There are three versions: the normal, an easy and a difficult one. You can try which you want.
In 1940, England was about to starve, and she was in need of goods and supplies. Merchants from North America were traveling to England in Convoys. German submarines worked as wolf packs who were trying to remain silent until the moment they would attacked the merchants and as a reaction, British send warships to defend the merchants.
Otto Kretschmer was the best ace of submarines even though he only served for one and a half of the six years of WW2. However, you may end up shorter, or longer, according to your actions.
For more information about the Battle of the Atlantic:
I recommend you to save your game often. If you want to repair your boats, you can garrison in the shipyard of Brest or the shipyard of Copenhagen. Also, remember that as far as you haven't already been detected and you DON'T attack them, Battleships won't detect you because they don't have hydrophones. There are rank promotions in the game, which you will recieve if you complete your objectives. But there are also six medals which you don't need to get, but if you want to challenge yourself, you can try to get them all! How to get the medals:
Iron Cross Second Class: Sink 10 ships.
U-boat War Badge: Go close to North Pole .
Iron Cross First Class: Sink 20 ships.
Knight's Cross: Sink 30 ships.
Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves: Sink 6 American ships.
Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords:Sink 4 ships of Royal Navy
This is my third scenario. If you liked it, you can play more of the scenarios I have created. So far, I have created:

Saving Private Ryan -Like Movie Series
Please, review, comment and suggest. But only after you have finished all the story.
(See README file for instructions and TIPS or if you don't know HOW TO PLAY A SCENARIO)
Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others.
