Eidos Hungary-please add a single player skirmish mode and a mission editor! Thanks!

100% agree. The sooner we can get a skirmish option in the game the better. I really hope they do not take forever on this. I know the game was just released. But this is something that should have been in the release.

Lets make this game better guys, a single player shootout would be my biggest dream.

Well if they add SP skirmish mode they might as well add a MP skirmich mode as well.

Preferably using "build your own fleet/army" system like in Total War series. Say you're alllotted certain ship tonnage (or "money") for any given map any you spend it any way you want.

I'm very suprised that there wasn't a skirmish mode included as it seems the norm for all strategy games out there. Although it isn't exactly what you would call a standard rts by any means.
I must say I'm enjoying it so far though, it's unique enough to be very entertaining. Good fun!
So devs, I say please include skirmish mode in the patch. ;)

Complete agree! I would have trashed M2:TW already if not for the custom battle mode.

I'd also really like to see a skirmish mode, or at least some sort of simple quick battle mode - either that or a map/mission editor of some kind!
This is a potentially great game with an impressively detailed selection of ships and aircraft, and the combination of strategy and direct unit control is great fun (when you're not restricted to a single unit or squadron, which seems to often be the case in the campaign), so it's a shame that (other than in multiplayer) you're restricted to what seems to be a fairly short and heavily scripted campaign and a handful of seperate missions.
If nothing else, an unpacker tool to extract the data from .mpak files would be good, so fans can modify the existing missions (assuming the mission files are editable with a text or hex editor), along with things like sound mods and possibly even realism modifications (increased ship gun ranges etc.)

From previous experience with other games lacking these features, I don't have much hope of them being added in anything other than an expansion pack or sequel - but I could be wrong.

Seconding or thirding that.

I am not much of an online player and since I'm done with the single player - there's no replayability for me. Please add single player skirmish mode (somethign like what Task Force 1942 had would be awesome)

Man that game was a classic! I loved TF1942. Janes Fleet Command was OK afterwards in the 90's but I loved the WW2 genre.

totally agree.. skirmish mode and a map editor are sorely needed.

I would love it too. Maybe a expansion pack with skirmish and some more single player chapters...

Yes, I really hope there is some new content to go along with the fixes they are making. Would Love to have a map editor and Skirmish mode.
