First off: If not more thing were done to enhance this game, I would still be very happy with it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

I normally set up quick missions with UQMB, but as we all know, Uberdemon still has quite a bit of work to do. I was just wondering if it would be possible to implement a "ship" target in the game's QMB. With the new maps that were added to QMB, I was surprised that in a PTO sim there wasn't an option to set up a quickie ship attack mission. I know that there are a couple of ships that are of the civillian variety on the Pacific Islands map, and yes, they are fun to sink, but I'd like to see a military ship down there.

Thanks, 1C, and Oleg,

It's there, although not very obvious. All you need to know is that 'Airbases' on the Coral Sea map are actually ships...

Also you'll fly above a naval battle on the Crimea map if you don't select a target.

I agree that it should be easier to find in a sim named 'Pacific Fighters'.

Good Lord! Thanks, Plumps http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif I suppose that this is the fastest I've ever had a request find its way into the game. Cool!

The only problem with that is:

- AFAIK the Crimea map is not available to stand-alone PF? Also, it's not exactly the same as attacking a carrier, as neither Germans nor Russians have them.

- Coral Sea forces you to fly carrier-based planes. No way to try out the Beaufighter against a formation of ships there.

My idea would be to add a naval battle like on the Crimea map to the Okinawa QMB template. That would fix both problems.
