Has anyone made a German Empire flag mod?

I was interested in replacing the fictitious German flag in the game with the tricolor German Empire flag. Has anyone created such a thing or know where it could be downloaded? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Been Away From the Game for a While: How Has OOB progressed?

Hey guys, I was really big into OOB for a while, playing it on the release date and beating both campaigns multiple times. I was a little bit annoyed at certain aspects of the game like the faction perks (can't remember the name, but choosing Bushido or Banzai Charges, that sort of thing) being real...

Re: ETA next patch?

I have noticed the devs haven't been as active in commenting lately. Hopefully a new patch is around the corner. It is surprising there wasn't a hotfix for the pop-up issues. I remember the devs were super active, fixing issues left and right. I remember how they even coded an option to turn off the...

Re: Does experience affect air combat much? At all?

That said, that's a really, really, really, REALLY subtle effect. The cost of replacements to get that air unit to full experience is MASSIVE and it buys you going from 2+ 3 to 3 2+? That's very weak. Half the time you'll end up with the same result. The effect needs to be tweaked upwards significa...

Re: Does experience affect air combat much? At all?

Hmm, good question! I had felt since the beginning that experience and leaders are more bland and less meaningful than Panzer Corps. That would be disappointing if it was totally pointless in air combat. Anecdotally, I seem to remember my high experience BB of the same class doing more damage than l...

Re: How to deal with subs?

I agree with this! So do I. First of all, the "perimeter movement" where going maximum range will cause the boat to surface needs to go. Replace it with manual survace/dive mechanics (which the player will amost never use). Instead, have moving the full range disable the torpedo attack. Next, the s...

Re: Fantastic game - here's my first impressions

Some folks have reported the resource-point-stingyness in the US campaign dissipates eventually, but I must've missed that somehow. I think in NewGeorgia I did ok and even got beyond 1000 prestige at some point, which was when I purchased my first real tank. Then I took some losses and got little m...

Re: My Review of the Various Specializations

I found Bushido to be the best of those Japanese specializations, get completely op when combined with Defensive Doctrine. Art of Pulling is back in OoB:P, and it stronger than ever. OoB:P AI's wet dream is to cut off your supply lines, and like the PzC AI it doesn't look beyond the current turn. I...

Re: My Review of the Various Specializations

Yeah, Tiger tanks are bugged based on the number of people who have had issues with them. They worked okay for me on my playthrough luckily. SimCC: That is a good point about using Tokyo Express to support a small marine landing, I hadn't considered that. I can see how that could be handy. I will ch...

Re: How to deal with subs?

... Fortunately subs do very little damage ... Yet air launched torpedoes do impressive damage, the sort I'd like to see submarines do. On the subject of ASW, why is it that depth charges have the same range as some torpedoes? I wish the devs could rework submarines. Maybe a trade off where the tor...

My Review of the Various Specializations

One of my favorite features when I first started playing was the specialization system. It is still one of my favorites but after playing more, I have recognized certain significant issues in its implementation. Specifically, many specializations are of almost no consequence. In this thread I will l...

Re: China DLC

One other possibility I thought about is to portray the war up to late 1941 (ending in a possible Chinese surrender) and then be able to import that core into the main campaign. Maybe it could be like the 42-43 West DLC in Panzer Corps where you can only import a small handful of units, but it would...

New Zealand: Missing Picture and Super Slow AI turns

Two issues to report on this save, the easy one is that the clear waters newspaper clipping just has a blank screen where the picture would be. The other issue is that the AI just takes an insane amount of time to complete their turn, probably around 10 minutes. I am not sure if it is an issue the D...

Re: US Campaign retrospective

Great post! I agree with each and every point except the upgrades, I really didn't mind them, for some reason every minor upgrade always gave me an odd sense of satisfaction, though the lack of resources is a major problem. I went with the British Pacific fleet, it was cool but it really needed to c...

Re: Destroyers- Must have been on Sale at Wal-mart

The US is definitely tight on resources, no disagreement there. But if you have some of your own destroyers can place them in front of your heavies and protect them from torpedo attacks. If you do this, and throw in a few bombers as was mentioned, you can beat the destroyers pretty easily.

Re: Downfall ... bug or feature?

I had many of the same problems as you. The AI turns on Downfall were absolutely terrible. I remember once I walked away from my computer for 10-15 minutes and when I came back, to my shock, the AI turn was still going on! The capturing harbors secondary objective was bugged for me too.

Re: Java: Typo Found

Neglectable isn't really a word I have ever heard used before but even still in the game it was spelled "negnectable". I do think "negligible" would be a more appropriate word for the situation.
