Re: Tokyo Express - suggestions and bugs.

Very nice map and extremely fun to play using De Ruyter and Hermes. I think it can be published with a few small fixes like fixing the briefing bug and perhaps also giving the USA 1 sub.In capable hands a sub is so much more effective then a PT boat as a PT boat only carries 8 torps while a sub carries much more and a PT boat for the Japanese to make things equal again.

Conclusion:
Map seems to be an award winner. When I played it seemed extremly satisfactory. ag

Re: Tokyo Express - suggestions and bugs.

Ok my quick opinion and some screenshots.

Screenshots first

again AK Shinano

and CV Hermes again. Hermes has 1 aa gun only !!

Okay. Map is extremely fun and balanced well in my opinion. Not need to change units. These american PT are good weapon against subs. Some bugs - nothing important.

at this moment i remember these:

- AI for ships when crossing island (is this possible ?? )
- Bug with visible name Indian Ocean Raid when map is finished
- Strange white areas near some islands (its visible on screenshot 4)

AND IMPORTANT QUESTION

Can you change map textures to night textures?

Re: Tokyo Express - suggestions and bugs.

The map is well balanced and seems to be better than Indian Ocean Raid in my opinion. A little bug that i obderved is an american flag on Hermes, but this thing isn't to much important=)

Re: Tokyo Express - suggestions and bugs.

A bug is Raid on Truk is now known as Mod Map but it doesn't matter since it works perfectly fine. I played it 5 times in a row and nothing happened.

Re: Tokyo Express - suggestions and bugs.

Yes ab Cargo ship is running with 18 knots speed, can be controlled like any other unit, can be repaired too. This unit need 2 torps without repairs or 8 with repairs ON to sink her, but still can be destroyed by strafing plane attack.

Re: Tokyo Express - suggestions and bugs.

Found an error, the Shianao4 (I think it mispelled ag) isn't an key objective ship yet the other cargo ship is.

Also the Cargo ships play far to little role in the battle, when I played it, it was mostly a ship duke out between DD's and CA's while the Japanese cargo ships sat half way across the map, they need to be more closer to the battle to make them more worth of a target to go out of your way to attack apart from the Japanese CA's.

Re: Tokyo Express - suggestions and bugs.

Tokyo Express - Night Edition:

I find the Japanese fleet is stronger than the U.S. fleet, there's what you can do on the balance? Perhaps one can replace U.S. ships against CA's or BB's ?

  • N_Trainz : it shouldn't crash any of the IJN missions, just one mission has the history of crashing in the Challenge missions 2, I don't know the name as its been a while I last loaded this mod
  • alantay11 : Gdrive mod crashes when i try to load a mission in ijn campaign?
  • 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. :/
