Iowa Mission Pack and Midway Modders Mappacks 1 and 2 are recommended.

A little bit of overkill

A little bit of overkill

So this is one of my map ideas and I called it Battle of Hawaii/Pearl Harbor. So in this map the Pacific fleet sails out of Pearl to engage the IJNs carrier force after learning that they left Japan and 1 message was caught by a passing American submarine and was decoded using the ULTRA and MAGIC machines. Rear Admiral Kimmel( C in C of Pacific Fleet) immeadiately sent the Pacifc fleet and another carrier from the Atlantic to engage this threat. However Yamamoto had recon flights out which saw this force and he added the IJNs battleships and heavy cruisers to this mix and it became a huge battle. However as we can only put 20 ships on each team we have limit ourselves to CAs as smallest unit.

So Japan:
Player 1: CV CV BB CA CA
Player 2: CV CV BB CA CA
Player 3: CV BB BB CA CA
Player 4: CV BB BB CA CA

Total: 6 CV, 6 BB(3 Kongo, 3 Fuso), 8 CA(4 Tone and 4 Mogami)



US Navy
Player 1: CV BB BB CA CA
Player 2: CV BB BB CA CA
Player 3: CV BB BB CA CA
Player 4: CV BB BB CA CA

Total: 4 CV, 8 BB(All New York), 8 CA(All Northampton)


Key Units: The American Battleships and Japanese Carriers.

Re: A little bit of overkill

Not a bad idea.  It may not be historicly true, but it can be considered a "What if" deal.  However, I would recommend that you make the Jap BBs 2 Fusos and 4 Kongos, since Fuso has a slight advantage over New York, and the fact that in reality, only 2 Fuso-class and 4 Kongo-class were built anyway.  But, what do I know, you are the brain behind this map, not me.

Re: A little bit of overkill

This kinda reminds me of the steel monsters map, just that it also includes CV's and no islands.

Its an interesting concept.

You could cut the BB's and CV numbers in half to include DD's, this would give Japan and the US 6 DD's then again its your map concept =P

Re: A little bit of overkill

Well I thoght this could be more of a "fun" map with tons of units but the 20 unit limit kind of cut the size down. This was the original unit list
Japan:
Player 1: CV CV BB CA CA CA CL CL CL CL DD DD DD DD DD SS
Player 2: CV CV BB CA CA CA CL CL CL CL DD DD DD DD DD SS
Player 3: CV BB BB CA CA CA CL CL CL CL DD DD DD DD DD SS
Player 4: CV BB BB CA CA CA CL CL CL CL DD DD DD DD DD SS

Total 6 CV 6 BB 12 CA 16 CL 20 DD 4 SS


US Navy:
Player 1: CV BB BB CA CA CA CL CL CL CL DD DD DD DD DD SS
Player 2: CV BB BB CA CA CA CL CL CL CL DD DD DD DD DD SS
Player 3: CV BB BB CA CA CA CL CL CL CL DD DD DD DD DD SS
Player 4: CV BB BB CA CA CA CL CL CL CL DD DD DD DD DD SS

Total: 4 CV 8 BB 12 CA 16 CL 20 DD 4 SS



By the way about the Fuso's. Ise and Hyuga were actually repeat Fuso's but they had so many changes that the Japanese just decided to call them another class so the extra Fuso can be Ise or Hyuga. Of course both classes also had 6 TT and Fuso actually had 16 6 inch guns in casemates to Ise/Hyuga's 20 5.5 inch guns. And since the Japanese have no BBs that are exactly equal to the New Yorks but even then its going to be 60 14-inch guns to 80 and 18 squads in the air vs 12(Squads are 3 planes each.)

Re: A little bit of overkill

The Japanese Key units are the carriers while the American key units are the battleships. Yes Triviaman their X and Y turrets were removed and they had a flat deck in the end with a hanger underneath which allowed them to be able to house 22 aircraft+the ones on the flat deck but that was after the Battle of Midway so also after this. At this time they still had 12 14 inch guns in 6 turrets and did not carry 22 aircarft. They were also only 700 tons heavier then the Fuso.

Re: A little bit of overkill

OMG with all these ships this map can could be named as a slaughterhouse. Who can survive something like that ab

Okay, i'm serious now. Battlestations Midway has a limitation with number of ships. Max 5 units per player. Max 20 units per team. It can be overrided by using shipyards as a units, thats the only way to give players more ships.

So... we can dream about big battles but at this moment your map is impossible to create. If you still want to see Pearl Harbour, you should reduce list of units.

With this, please remember we have Coral Sea, Samar and Indian and new map on open sea should be different!

Re: A little bit of overkill

0.o Where did you guys get the conception that 20 units is the max? In fact we haven't tested a multiplayer map with more then 20 units yet, Gamming-for-dummies told me he would be testing a map with more then 20 units to see if more can be added. In fact I have been toying with unit limitations, I have recently tried a map with about 40 units on the players side (Single player) with no problems, then again that's single player.

So don't give up the big battle hopes just yet XD.

Re: A little bit of overkill

Well Samar is extremely unfair as a good player with New York can destroy a full health Yamato, there are no BBs in Coral Sea and only 2 CAs. As for Indian Ocean thats small scale compared to this since it says a total of 6 carriers and 6 BBs which is what I have for the Japanese team alone. By the way admin the real idea is on top not the one in which every team has 64 ships. Anyway its just an idea.

Re: A little bit of overkill

Oh Tipsy3000, that's the new info. I was pretty sure 5 units per player is max. If i remember good, i got this info from Gaming-for-dummys. Of course You guys are modders, so You know better, and its good to hear there is no limitations.

So... let's back to our concepts. We should rememer, except non existens game limitation we have players limitation. After releasing Indian Ocean Sea with 36 units we got opinions, map is chaotic a little, thanks to all these units.

Im just trying to imagine this map in action with 64 units...

Re: A little bit of overkill

It seems people are under the impression that 20 units per side ( 5 per player ) is the max the game can handle

I don´t know if i gave taht impression somewhere, but its not true

the 64 ships scenario is just as posible as 16 units per side

its just that, per player, 5 ships can be seen on the unit list where you choose you player position

Re: A little bit of overkill

So the first and original scenario with 128 ships is still possible?

  • 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.
