An interesting approach.
I wonder why the IA shows enemy sonobuoys, you can tell where are your own ones but it is supposed that enemy buoys are almost indetectable.

You are partially correct. Passive enemy sonobuoys are essentially invisible. However, active sonobuoys can be detected from their sonar emissions.

Note that this only happens in the H3 v3.6.3 version of the game. Only in this version will the AI deploy active sonobuoys. Active buoys are never deployed by the AI in either the ANW v3.9.4 or HUE v3.10 game versions.

Come and play this scenario with me. I would love to see how it works in MP. It is set up for MP battle, but has never been tested with live opponents.

In direct response to a request for assistance from:
ORIGINAL: rsitaly

I have installed the last version of the PlayersDB for ANW, HUE and H3-363 without problem.
I have installed also the file with the "ANW and HUE images" ... the installed worked fine but I have a doubt:
- the installer put these images under the directory DATABASES/PLAYERSDB/PICS
but normally the images are under the directory RESOURCES/DBPICS
so my question is simple ... I have to move the images under this directory or they are found also under where the installer put them?

As a newbie, I would like to know more about surface to surface naval combat.

Thus, may you produce a video about <<air lane raiders>>?

Apologies in advance for the length of this video, but the request for assistance specified a detailed walk-through for this scenario. Therefore, this game was recorded in real time without the use of any pauses normally employed in the recording process to abbreviate videos.

After-Action Report for the White Death scenario between Alexandre H. and Herman Hum. Apologies for the low sound recording level experienced by Alexandre. This is a special video to focus upon the thoughts, intentions, motivations and plans for the various tactics and strategies employed by both players with less emphasis on the actual outcome. This is Alexandre's first attempt at making a video after-action report.

I am glad you were able to glean some useful details. I was worried that even though the video was only 16 minutes, it might have been too boring due to a lack of combat. Happy to learn that I was wrong. :)
