Map Idea

Map Idea

Map Name: Raid on Rabaul

THIS IDEA HAS BEEN SCRATCHED

History: After the Allies took Bouganville they decided to attack the Japanese base of Rabaul. The USN sent in the CVs Saratoga and Princeton with 4 DDs and 2 CLs. After traveling under the cover of a storm they launch everything they have at the base. Their targets were the airfeild and the fleet in the bay consisting of  2 CAs, a CV, and 4 DDs.   

Units (US):

Slot 1: CV, DD,DD
Slot 2: CVL, DD,CL
Slot 3: CA DD,DD
Slot 4: CA,DD,CL

The CVs will consist of 30 Wildcats, 30 Dauntlesses, and 30 Avengers each.
2 of the DDs will be Clemson class and the other 2 of course Fletcher
The 2 CLs will be Atlanta Class
The CAs will be York class

Units (IJN):

Slot 1: Airfeild,DD,CL
Slot 2: CV,DD,CL
Slot 3: CA,DD,DD
Slot 4: CA, DD,Shipyard

The airfeild will consist of 30 Gekkos, 20 Bettys, and 30 Kates
The CV (Akagi Class) will consist of 30 Zeroes, 30 Judys, and 30 Kates
The 5 DDs will be Fubuki Class
The 2 CAs will be Tone Class
The CLs will be Kiso Class
The shipyard is capable of launching Type A subs


Objectives:

US:
                1. Destroy the Japanese fleet, and airfeild
                2. Atleast one Allied key unit must survive ( Saratoga, Princeton)

IJN
                1. Destroy the US carriers
                2. One japanese key unit must survive (Akagi and Airfeild)

Re: Map Idea

First id like to say; this thread doesnt belong here! Can someone move it to where it should be?

Ok onward to what I think, well at a first glance, this will be a really small battle, so a highly skill player would own here. Also small battles could backfire as shown here, the Allied forces can put up twice as many aerial squads then the Japanese can and theres few ships (big ones not to mendtion) for flak support, so taking out that air base would be really easy. once the air base is gone, its only a matter of time picking off the CA's one by one from an air strike.

Also since the Japanese have to take out the 2 carriers which are practically moving airbases could be very hard, the CV's could just run while doing constant strikes and the CA's would be receiving damage from escorts and being slowed down by them.

In short it feels lopsided and geared towards Allied forces in my opinion.

Re: Map Idea

Here is my opinion on it. Adding 1 or 2 DD to each player will make this map longer and harder to win for both sides. Now it seems like the Battle of Phillipines that we already have so we can add 2 more CAs and 2 more Airfields to the Japanese and we can give the Americans 2 Northamptons the Ranger(it was in the Atlantic the whole war) and perhaps the Hornet(if it hasn't been sunk yet.) This would make the battle more Unique and it would be like a version of Operation MI but with large surface forces too. Also converting the two US CLs to CAs would make this map fair since 2 CA and 2 CL are really no match for 4 CA. But its your idea and I'm just giving my opinion of it.

Re: Map Idea

Okay i'm back so i can add my 5 cents. First of all map concept should include a draft. Take a look for Tokyo and  Indian or for Nemesis/Tipsy projects, You should see their projects are really good drawn. Thats is the much easiest way to let other users understand your map concept.

Second: at this moment we have identical units like on Battle of Philippines. Maybe its it should look a little different ? Untypical project probably has bigger chance to be build.

At last - thank you for your invention ab

Just my 5 cents ab

  • 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.
