Hi all,

Longtime CMANO lurker here and just took the plunge...…… at the sale price I just couldn't resist.

Couple of basic questions:

1/ are all the patches and DB updates cumulative??

2/ Is a lot of micromanaging really necessary or can the "friendly" AI be counted upon to plot reasonable routes, appropriate ordnance, variable altitudes/depth etc. etc. I've noticed in the AARs that there seems to be a lot of that. Is it personal preference or commanding as the admiral is a frustrating experience because of incompetent AI subordinates??

Regards,

Rob.

My understanding is that whatever you download is supposed to be the latest and greatest...
BUT: look at the build number of the latest update and compare it to what is on your screen.

Have fun!

As to your question about AI - the mission editor will handle many of the details for you. It takes some learning but it is extremely powerful.

Micro management is a personal choice. The AI does a really good job, missions are the only way to really play the larger scenarios.

Welcome aboard!

As others have said, learning how to use the mission editor correctly will yield a good return on time invested. I tend to
leave my missions alone unless they're of special interest or important to the greater operation. The level you want to
manage operations is pretty much up to your own style.

There are plenty of tutorials and smaller scenarios to help get you acquainted with the important stuff. The other nitty-gritty
stuff can wait! Have fun!
