Hey guys. I just bought SaI with the Campaign Expansion. Comming from Rule the Waves, I searched something with a nice turn scale and more focused on battles. However, I wonder, what objectives there are and how to fullfil them. At my first turn with the Imperial Navy I have the tast to go some miles northeast of Scapa Flow wit at least 3 CL. My Recon Group is in the way at the moment. Another task given is to lay a minefield. The target was given by me, btw. However, since an considerable amount of time my minelaying vessel already stood inside the dot, but nothing happened...how can I lay mines there now? Do I need to click anything specific?
And another question is: Can I give more own targets than laying mines to get more VP?
Thanks so far.
With a third or fourth look into the manual, I figured out the issue with the missions. And the issue with the minelaying seems to be solved as well, as my minelaying vessel hadn't any mines aboard. So, questions seems to be fine now, but any hints and advices are still welcome. =)

Remember that not all objectives are mandatory. The design is intended to recreate operations "suggested" by the Naval Staff (your bosses) or as the mandatory ones, "ordered". They're selected from a list in the scenario files and sometimes may not seem like good ideas when they show up. This too is intentional since higher headquarters in the Great War were susceptible to poor operational planning regardless of the country.
Don't forget that you can always add one minefield objective even if no objective is generated that turn.
