Re: IJN NAGATO BB

Hey Swarthy, you think after you finish this model or Bagley, you can do the Zuiun (The plane for Ise).

After all, if we have Ise, we should also have the planes for it.

Re: IJN NAGATO BB

Thanks.  BTW, when do you think you're going to start designing your Battle off Samar map (My suggested title: Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors).  Because I'm still trying to wrap around my head how you're going to make that map work in multiplayer.  (Im sure you already know, so Im eager to hear).  As a single player map in ship challenge, I see it as a very excellent challenge for the allies.

Hope to see all these new units in MP 3... whenever the announcement comes official.

Re: IJN NAGATO BB

Hey Triviaman,
I didnt have any plans designing the Battle of Samar Map. I already sensed that It wont make it past the suggestion stage. I was hoping that someone would take up the challenge in doing so. I am rather focused on making new units. I have no experience making maps nor am I inclined to do so.

BUT i still have hope that more historical maps will be created.
You feel like designing some historical maps? I like the video you made for the Battle of Savo Island. You seem to have the inclination for that sort of stuff.
Your ability for facts and figures astounds me.

Re: IJN NAGATO BB

Ok, I'll design a Samar SINGLE player map (Makes more sense if it is that way), give you the credit, and we'll see what happens.  Maybe it can work that way.

Re: IJN NAGATO BB

Here's the thing Swarthy... the problem with designing a map like the real Battle off Samar as multiplayer would be unfair (everyone would want to go Japanese).  I've designed about 5 maps by now (of which, two were brought to life), and after a couple lessons in balancing courtesy of Katarya from Savo Island, there is no way I could make it work.  What I can do is work on a single player version... and if someone can figure out if multiplayer can work, than so be it.

Re: IJN NAGATO BB

So basically you won't do a multiplayer based on the assumption that unit balancing is an issue and not necessesarily that It can't be done. So the battle of Savo Island was also a lopsided battle but it seems some balance has been achieved. I get it. Theres really no desire to recreate historical battles because of unfair unit imbalance.

I would think that those who would like to be Japanese would be the less skilled players and those with more experience would like to be the US side on this map.
Aren't there players who like the odds stacked against them. I knew that the actual battle had the US side on the loosing end yet they managed to turn the Japanese away and win the battle. A map like this would be played by the likes of EST and others who believe in air power. So there were alot of historical battles that were won by the underdogs. I think maps that are uneven for multiplayer can be won but it highly depends on the skill of the team.  A historical series should be created!

I will insist on the map. I will learn how to make maps then, it will be a slow process because of the learning curve. But that would mean not making new units for awhile.

I've completed many unit requests in hopes that they will be use in a historical scenarios. But so far my ONE simple request has gone unanswered and I fear it will never come to life until I myself learn how to make it.

Re: IJN NAGATO BB

Ok Swarthy, you convinced me.  I'll do my best to try a Historically accurate Samar Map and we'll see what happens.

NAGATO BB by Minerhttp://battlestations.eu/components/com_agora/img/members/673/mini_miners-Nagato-BB.pnghttp://battlestations.eu/components/com_agora/img/members/673/mini_miners-Nagato-BB-2.png

Using this model rather than the one I started. Excellent model that just needs damaged superstructure.

Re: IJN NAGATO BB

I've always wondered where all those models are now...perhaps this Nagato model could be used in BSM Ultimate and in BSP:LSP

  • N_Trainz : No it was created by multiple authors from around the world. I just made it so its actually a mod instead of a complete game that's about 7GB in size. The readme file that is displayed can give you more info about the mod
  • Runsva : hey ntrainz did u make this mod all by yourself?
  • N_Trainz : If you need any other help, just shout out and I'll try to get back as soon as possible
  • N_Trainz : Its not a problem :D I do thank you for waiting for a long time to get the mod. Again hope you enjoy the mod and the other fun features it comes with
  • Legendary Da : I don't know how many times I said that, but thank you so much for your work. Considering how much time making an installer, making it work and uploading it to different servers, I thank you again for the effort you put in this. :D
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Here it is, installers works this time and Moddb won't accept it as they say its too large to upload, so its on my Google Drive and here is the link, hope you enjoy it «link»
  • Legendary Da : I had guessed it was about the wrong area, though I still wondered why it had been removed. Thanks for taking your time to make something better for the community. Take as much time as you require, though; life still comes first.
  • N_Trainz : Actually it was removed by me for 2 reasons; 1. was it was uploaded in the wrong area and 2. the installer didn't autp - detect the disk version, only the Steam version (since that is what I have). Going to remake it so if you won't mind a but longer wat that'll be appreciated
  • Legendary Da : Thanks soo much for the mod, I couldn't access to the Internet lately so I couldn't write a reply. Btw, the mod is removed from ModDB, is it taken down, or you removed it yourself? Either way, thanks for the awesome work (at least for providing it) :D
  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
