View Full Version : Editing Air Patrols

I'm hoping a clever modder out there, someone, anyone, knows if there is a way to tone down the air patrols to something more realistic. In the way the game currently is, the aircraft attacks are fairly feeble, at least in the early years. Later in the game you will be jumped by swarms of planes.

From what I've been reading in the many posts that deal with this topic, I think a possible solution would be to reduce the swarming effect but increase the lethality of the planes. I do find it ridiculous to read of people shooting down literally dozens of planes over a career. If the real U-boats were as deadly to the planes as they are in this game, the Allies would have been in serious trouble, not the other way round, which as we know was how it really was.

I know that some modders are making adjustments elsewhere in the game, such as the frequency of HK groups, escort training levels, etc. I'm wondering if it is possible to do the same thing with the air patrols? Make the planes more dangerous, but not so unrealistically numerous and frequent as they are in this game. Is this possible?
