Battlestations Midway cover

Yesterday Tipsy3000 released his mod. It's available for download from Megaupload server. If You do not read previous post, the main idea for Realism Mod is to bring you a more historical feel and more realstic gameplay experience of naval combat on the high seas and in the skies with planes. And it's done. All ships and planes have their historical speed, turning speed, accelerating and deccelerating speed, armor, changed range for guns and torpedos. There are also new bombs and torpedo types. With Realism Mod Battlestations Midway is no longer arcade shooter game, it becomes simulator game (but still withour additional screens or rooms with triggers, switchers and another that stuff known from other naval sim games, Silent Hunter for example).

If you want experience  the helplessness on the damaged aircraft carrier without the possibility of launching planes, because your Flight Deck is damaged - download Realism Mod. If You want feel as commander of inert ship without the chance of move the ship, because your engine room is heavy damaged download Realism Mod. For the first time mod for our BSM game becoming with additional software for activate and deactivate mod before launching the main game. Click Read More for more details about changes, some instructions and download link.

If this is possible, make a repair thing on Airfields. IRL if you bombed a runway it would be out of service, no? So, if someone does major damage to the runway (and I mean major) then have it be disabled, and make the person repair it.
0 # Tipsy3000 2010-07-23 03:58
It cant be done and wouldnt be done even if possible, combat in BSM takes place between minutes to hours in relation to real life, not enough time to make an airfield functional after being hampered by several tons of bombs.
+1 # Colonel Duck 2010-12-03 23:36
Runways are part of islands, not airfields. The only way for that to happen is to make islands repairable, which is ridiculous.

Hmmm are you running under Windows 7 or vista? I am running under vista and I have yet to see such problems, and XP should have no problems of it viewing.
