IJN KAGA CV

IJN KAGA CV

Miner has been looking for a Kaga model for a long time. He has given us our first custom model the HMS Dorsetshire. He is also a modder and modeller for the SIlent Hunter series of games. Because he is exchanging models in the spirit of cooperation. The unit is bumped up in priority.
Unit is under construction.

Re: IJN KAGA CV

Looking good Swarthy.

    Considering that this looks like a very detailed ship, how long do you think it will take to make this unit?

Re: IJN KAGA CV

seeing as Akagi and Kaga were half-sisters, we don't need her as the existing Akagi class will suffice

Re: IJN KAGA CV

ADI and  SloppyJapman, there are major differences in the two.
Alot of sources do say they are half sister. But the two have different hulls, different island locations. Different flight deck shapes.
You should do more research other than WIkipedia.
They are not identical and the Akagi will not suffice as the Kaga im sorry it just wont.

The major difference at first glance is that the island of Akagi is on the port side. Guess where the Kaga island is?

I put alot of research into modeling these units and make them as close as possible with limitations on file size.
So when you make comments on  units please do some careful thinking and research first, I am not perfect by any means and I do make errors.
When you spot an error  I and the BSM community will be thankful for the correction.

Re: IJN KAGA CV

It will be a while ADI, Miner actually has problems with the model, he works with wings3D.

Anybody ever had any dealings with WINGS3D? Miner is experiencing missing surfaces from the model which i make with rhino.

Any help or advise is greatly appreciated. Thanks.......

  • Legendary Da : Hi everyone, I have one (or two) quick question about BS:M modding. I try to figure out sp mapmaking, and my first act on it was to convert a MP map to SP. However I can only play as Allies in those maps. What parameter do I have to change to play those maps as Japanese in the respective map .mpak (And where is the parameter I have to change?)?
  • N_Trainz : G'day mates, I just wanted to let those who use Windows 10 and also for those who are having troubles getting the game launching because of Games for Windows LIVE, I made a tutorial of how to get it working successfully again like on Windows 8.1. Its on my channel and here's the link to the video. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : The dictator, I downloaded the mmod2txm and I added four slots to the fletcher and a couple to the lexington.Thanks for the help though.
  • The Dictator : Makeo67 i've explained how to find the unused slots in the topic and the mmod2txm it's a program that has been shared. However there aren't so many ships with unused platforms and sme of them are in wrong positions and for move them you need to know how to change the mmod file. But if you know how to do it you can make new platfors as you want. I've shared the south dakota disposition and this one is the most intersting in my opinion
  • N_Trainz : Well it looks like we have spammers again
  • Mokeo67 : No problem Thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : Not really
  • Mokeo67 : Ok thanks anyway. Do you know who does?
  • Axis_Crusher : Unfortunately I don't deal with that part of modding
  • Mokeo67 : Sorry forgot the link. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : This is the forum topic I meant. The dictator said he found the unused slots in the TXM file obtainable with the mmod2txm, what is this and is it available to use.
  • Axis_Crusher : This is your best bet: «link»
  • Mokeo67 : Also I saw on the forum that ships have unused platform slots. How do I use these?
  • Mokeo67 : I tried changing the bogue class carrier to a yorktown class in the phillipene sea mission and one of two things happened. The mission either didnt change or the game crashed.
  • Axis_Crusher : No problem
  • Mokeo67 : That is what im talking about. Ill have a look at it later thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : specific mission’s 3_scene mpak file by working on the .lua file. There is where the bonus unit is actually added into the mission (by the script). I haven't tried it myself so good luck.
  • Axis_Crusher : I assume you are talking about the bonus units that you unlock for certain missions by completing previous ones (like the B - 25’s in the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal). The bonus units are unlocked by completing certain objectives in the campaign - so that is linked to your campaign progress. Since that cannot be altered you must look at the missiontree.lua file. This is where the unit will show up unlocked on the mission screen. There are references to allunitslock. Also you will have to edit the
  • Mokeo67 : Thank you I will look in this file. I did unlock all the campaign missions, all you have to do is delete the text after 'prerequisite' and it will unlock. But I havent figured out how to unlock the bonus units.
  • Axis_Crusher : I also prefer it being off, just as most of the BSM community. Most players, however prefer repair to be enabled so that is what we should do. Most of our maps it will be disabled through the script however. If you want to play with the game's repair settings you can find it under shipglobals.lua
