What if you expand range by putting the radar at the edges?

I had a thought that crossed my mind, Ace, and in fact I was thinking, Why not set up the radars so that they border the inner ring, by doing that, wouldn't it increase Radar range by say about 20-50% of what it is now? I mean think about it, If you create a Bubble of protection using the Airbases t...

Another potential Glitch?

Also I found another weird "Anomaly" I was sending some bombers to an airbase in Africa and off the coast of Africa near the airbase was a fleet of battleships. and Rather then Landing at the base to rearm with Nukes so that the bombers could carry out one last strike on Russian cities, th...

What's the trick with the "Shift Key?"

Getting back to Subs and the "Shift Key" trick: I was wondering about this myself and I experimented with it today. Now the question is this.. 1. Do only subs that you have set to "MRBM Mode" surface and Fire when you hit the Shift key and select one of the subs to go into MRBM M...

Question...

I have a simple question:

if I downloaded the 1.43 Beta 1 patch, will this new one supersede it, or will I have to uninstall the 1.43 beta 1 patch so I could install the current 1.43 patch? :?:

Now let's get realistic people. Subs are realllllly slow. Depending on where you want to position yours, it could take the entire game (nearly) for them to even remotely get close to the ideal position you had in mind. So by that time, they are useless to go on a hunt with and we all know it. By th...

Is Retargeting Launce Range Dependent for bombers?

I've been fiddling with the and I (Think) I've been able to retarget (Even while in SRBM Mode) to another target and it's basically because of the Missile's Launch range. (I think one of the experts can test this out for me, at least I've noted this when I've played (and Yes i have the 1.43 beta 1 p...

Shoot nukes first then 'go hunting'.

I tend to agree with the consenus of Players here when it comes to Subs and using them in "Attack Mode" rather then using them as a MRBM launching platform. It's a very bad idea. Especially if you haven't dispatched all your MRBM Nukes out of the subs. Let's say for example you do put one ...

The first game we played in Alliance, and as I sat there watching myself get obliterated I commented on a simple question of whether or not I shot my silos off too e...

Installed the patch and now can't invade the Mediterrainian

Well I can see some logic from the 1.43 patch but it also hampers where a sub can and can't go now I guess. I mean before 1.43, anyone could theoretically get a sub into the middle of the Mediterrainian and be able to target Cairo, Rome, Even Tehran and Baghdad with little or no problem. but Now the...
