    Exclamation Offline Skirmish or Instant Action !!!!! :) :)

    Hey everyone I just wanted to Post this in the PC section also. This Game NEEDS a skirmish option, and the PC would be and awesome and easy way to slip it in the game. First off, This game should already have a skirmish option, we should not have to ask and begg for one. The single player mode ( Although fun ) is very lacking in replay value. And every single post I see about possible future patches and fixes only foceses on the multiplayer. What gives? I did not buy this game just for the multiplayer ( although im sure alot of people did I don't have the kind of time, that every time I want to play Midway I'd have to play an online game. It would be great if I could get home from work, set up a quick game in Skirmish, and just have fun VSing the computer. That way if I have to get up and do something, I can without haveing to ruin everyone's game online.
    Please don't be so single minded with this game Eidos, I love it, but I need more.

    Plus...... we should not have to begg for this stuff... Skirmish should be included in any RTS. ( I spent about and hour looking around the main menu and options trying to find an Instant Action Mode. I thought to myself .. It has to have one right?

    I agree. We need skirmish mode. And it will be best for developer or talented moder(if it's possible) to simply covert multiplayer maps in singleplayer - they're historical after all, maybe idea for next dlc. Only need scripting.

    I want lead the "Big E" and her escort many days long until there is no more planes in it or no more enemys in the sky or on the sea..
    I wish i could bring back the planes after the fight to repare them for the next battle and looking for the japanese fleet. commanded by AI .
    Call you that dynamic campaign or skirmish mode ?

    It has been told many times (see "Subsim" for instance) that with theses modes or an map editor, "or random mission generator, it would rank among the best naval action games" (Subsim).

    As single player is only playable once. (IMO)

    And I live in Australia, the land where if the game isn't popular enough you can't play multiplayer due to latency.

    This game will be sitting on my shelf. The problem is that it has so much potential. If only it had skirmish mode....

    Agreed a skirmish mode and possible some way to change starting forces on multi maps would make this game reach the mighty potential its deserves...

    Plus Reaves im Aussie there are few of us out there. (tag Davros) There are a bunch of us but u just need to be lucky and catch a game when its open. Usually named Aussie, ANZAC or something. Hopefully the patch may improve the rather simple online lobby system an make it easier to meet up, Like a chat mode in lobby or buddy system - Hint Ediose

    A great game imo just needs a bit of finishing off round the edges, like all great first time publications.

    i agree with the instant action and along the lines of a skirmish. i doubt this game is meant to be played as an RTS or else it would just throw the whole situation way out of proportion. i mainly play this gaem as a jump in and go arcade game, i mainly use the map for controlling multiple ships and setting way points thats it, i dont play the entire gaem from the map, i only do that sometimes when using aircraft.

    Its not going to happen so dont worry about it. they are going to save it for the expansion pack and make sure they get some more moeny of each and everyone of us........They made a bundle on the tools who paid for the dlc so now they have dollar signs in there eyes.....

    Skirmish Good - Battle Editor Better

    I agree with the posts above about the skirmish mode - but a full scenario editor would be so much better. Developers who have released an editor have seen their product go on an on with community support which only creates more and more sales.

    This is a great game - teh release of an Editor would only make it better.

    I would just like to say, lets start out with a small editor, that allows us to create ideal maps, that we can share between each other. The have lan/wan mod to allow the use of the modded maps. I would like to have the CV's to be able to do more. EX. when you have a squadron landing, have another one take off, for other missions. I would think that would be realistic. Thats just my two cents..
