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.

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 ?

  • 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
