Battle of Pearl Harbor Map Idea

Battle of Pearl Harbor Map Idea

name: day of infamy

map: pearl harbor

story: (this is just historically possible not wut really happened) It's December 4, 1941... Admiral Kimmel ordered the battleships to San Diego to get further armourment upgrades. Because of increasingly high Japanese aggression they sent lots of destroyers and heavy cruisers with them. Japanese recon had reported the battleships were anchored on December 3 but were unaware of their mobilization. When the Japanese attack group arrived at the island they were shocked to see that the American battleships were already on the move. The battleships saw the enemy fleet and realized what their plan was. Minutes later the Battle of Pearl Harbor began.

Re: Battle of Pearl Harbor Map Idea

Now at first the map seems a little unbalanced with Advantage being American. Yes the Japanese have 3 subs and yes their DDs are better but when a BB is 1.2 off your carriers with half or full health does it matter?You pretty much lost. Kongos are inferior to New Yorks and Fubukis shells cant even penetrate BB armor and them getting close enough to fully hit a BB is slim. It also seems like it will either be over very fast or stretch out for a long long time like Solomons. And it also does seem like that map.

Conclusions:
1 more bb to each side US BB should be Renown class while Japanese should be Fuso. That levels it out as both side will  have 36 big guns.
Also adding some CAs and CLs to each side can help.
Well I hope that helps you and good luck.







PS:The map creating team, I have been trying to create a new map to speed up the map pack relesae but have had no success and even modfiying existing maps have ended up failure and I can't find the Modding Paper.

Re: Battle of Pearl Harbor Map Idea

Well the Wildcat is slightly better then Zero but you countered that with P-40 which is slightly inferior so I thought it was good. Plz list units with the next reply I really need it. Here's an example:
IJN
Player 1: BB CA CV CL DD
Player 2: BB CA CV CL DD
Player 3: BB CA CV CL DD
Player 4: BB CA CV CL DD
Total: 4 BB, 4 CA, 4 CV, 4 CL , 4 DD
US
Player 1: BB BB CV
Player 2: BB CA CV CA
Player 3: BB BB CV
Player 4: BB CA CV CA
Total 6 BB, 4 CA, 4 CV
Not fair ofc but just an example.

Re: Battle of Pearl Harbor Map Idea

Okay then... Pearl Harbor. As far as we know in Pearl Harbor american airforces did not exists. We also know, there was no battleships battle.

IMO map should be a little different. As a template we can (probably) use Pearl Harbor single player map.

Some Japan units should be: 6 carriers 5 minisubs.
Some USA units: max 1 airfield (with about 30 warhawks) 6 or 8 BBs. No carriers.

Explanation. Pearl Harbor USA side - that was a fight for survive!!

Okay - It's simple how to mark USA key units - 3 or 4 of these USA BBs should be marked as a key units. IJN wins when they could destroy these key units. Not sure how we can assign targets for USA.

That's my 5 cents about Pearl Harbor ab.

Re: Battle of Pearl Harbor Map Idea

try 2 space out the airfeilds tho

if the BBs or CAs get in range of one of them then the can take both out really easily put them far down the coast tht will make it harder 2 get both of them and oahu actually had 2 small airstrips around those areas lol

Re: Battle of Pearl Harbor Map Idea

its not supposed 2 b real history tho... if u read the story they kept carriers ther so they wouldnt get ambushed by the subs tht were around the island like the DD found...and wen i thot of this i no a controversy is tht thers only 2 allied BBs tht are really tht good new york class and iowa class and i made as fair as possible but let u hav huge dogfights and naval battles 2.... and how bout this BBs airfeilds and CVs are key units k

  • 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.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
  • Runsva : pls help me fix it i really want to play this mod :D
