View Full Version : Question about Enemy or Neutral status

08-31-2005, 05:13 PM
I have no map contact update turned on, so I can't see if the ship near me is green or red. All I can do is look at the flag. For countries like Greece etc, how the heck do you know if they are a good target or not? There are a LOT of countries listed in the game, is there a list online somewhere that states when they were enemies of Germany? I looked all over and couldn't come up with one.

Hit F1 and click on attack orders. It gives a list of countries and when they joined the war.

They got Norway wrong!

As for Greece if you are in the med then most likely you are at war with them. Most nations you see you can fire on, its rare you are sent to an area with neutral shipping.

If you are playing the game in a "go where i want" style though then this may be a problem http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

If I don't know the flag, I listen for the music to change.

I know this is cheating but I figure this is fair for not being able to get that information from BDU.

BDU: Shoot all but neutrals or you will be penalized.

U-47: Which are the neutrals?

BDU: That isn't important, just don't sink any!

Shoot first don't worry about if they are neutral or not. If they do happen to be neutral claim it was a pre emptive strike as you will be at war with all nations featured in the game at some point http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

According to my 'Aces of the Deep' historical note, all neutral shipping should :-

(1) be traveling with lights on at night.
(2) not be zig-zagging.
(3) not be in a convoy with enemy shipping.

If any of these rules were broken, the Uboat captains had the "right" to sink the ship.
