I have a lot of experience with JA2 and UB, both with mods and without. Been awhile since I played, about 3 years, using the UC mod iirc. Had a hankering to play again and decided to try this mod not knowing anything about it.

My first attempt was at veteran using my old standby making a couple of IMPs and getting some cost effective mercs (Spider, Leech, Bud, Wolf) that I hope to level up. Landed in Omerta and what a surprise, experience soldiers with auto weapons. lol Didn't get far. Decided to try again, this time novice, with a different plan (picked better weapon load outs) and after a couple attempts was able to make it out of the first area (must of got lucky, real lucky). Went south and got the 'beware sniper' and decided to backtrack and go east. Helped the rebels defeat the soldiers there and the next area south, luckily only one merc wounded at this point. Thought to try the prison again but didn't have a chance, so decide to head to Drassen instead. First area encountered 5 recruits, thought to myself I should be ok here. Not so much, crack shots those recruits. lol It was like cover didn't exist for me and they were in a fortress when behind a rock or tree.

Hmmm, lets add a couple good shots with decent weapons this time. Maybe limited range with too many weapons is a problem. Hired Scope and Buzz and they had a sks with 2x scope and a M4 with Leech having a 9mm carbine with range of 26. Didn't help, even worst results this time. Scope, Buzz and Leech with 95+ marksmanship hit about 1/3 their shots if that good. All the while I'm getting sprayed with auto fire from three directions and taking multiple wounds. Made several attempts with this group, but too many were getting wounded every attempt and never was able to clear area.

My god, this is the hardest mod I've encountered. haha I hate to give it up, but I guess my skills just aren't up to par for this one. Looks really good, though, just in the 4 areas of Omerta I've seen.

Well, after taking a breather I tried again with the last group. Don't know if I played better or got lucky, but made it through the first sector with just two mercs with minor wounds. Other areas cleared out, now to decide to try the last sector or head for Drassen. How important is freeing the prisoners as opposed to getting the airport?
