AWP - Map 2 a.k.a Air battle over Japan

AWP - Map 2 a.k.a Air battle over Japan

The 1st map I worked on was the famous Battle of Sibuyan Sea from BSM. I got an idea to make a new map similar to Luzon. This map is called Air Battle over Japan. The scenario is a squad of 5 bombers are trying to make their way to safety. The Japanese must successfully escort them while the US must intercept. The US use Mustangs and the japanese Georges. Midway a squad of 20mm cannon equiped Hurricanes arrive to help and the Japanese respond with a squad of Raidens (both these squads are AI). Each player has only one squadron to use but if the squadron is destroyed, a new one will spawn (for the Japanese a kilometre in front of the bombers and the US at the bomber destination). This map is fast, merciless and full of action.

Of course this is still work in progress therefore you will see some problems in the screenshots

Re: AWP - Map 2 a.k.a Air battle over Japan

It's crazy!! 20 US and 20 JP fighters going at it in a sort of small map with a 5 plane bomber formation in the middle of it with additional Hurricanes and Raidens appearing to aid either side during the game. So you can easily have almost 50 planes going at it. it is the most epic dogfight ever!! Oh and the US Plane action and JP Plane action plays while this is happening ag

Re: AWP - Map 2 a.k.a Air battle over Japan

Ok I think this map is done. Now I'm just waiting for the george to be imported. In the meantime I'm making the final touches to Sibuyan before starting map 3 a.k.a. Ten-Go

I hope I'll be able to make a working George soon, but .mmod format have not yet exposed all of their secrets.

Hope it helps. (I would recommend using a Zero hull, for it is most similar to that.)

Oomperial is trying to make it from scratch but planes are complex to model

I'd expect that. Good luck making it anyway.

Re: AWP - Map 2 a.k.a Air battle over Japan

I'm really happy how this map came out. The AI works like a charm and puts up a good fight (if playing skirmish mode). The mission starts a bit slow but within 2 minutes it's a madhouse. The mission lasts anything from 2:43 to 4:44 minutes (based on a few tests). AWP will be huge

Sounds great. Nice work by the way. A nice no interference air battle. (YES! My 300th post on the forum.)

Re: AWP - Map 2 a.k.a Air battle over Japan

Thanks. P.S. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being a piece of cake and 10 being a whole crap-load of work, how hard was it to make your map?

Re: AWP - Map 2 a.k.a Air battle over Japan

This map was a 3. Sibuyan was an 8 but if I must make that same map now it will be a 4. The reason was Sibuyan was the 1st map I made and learnt everything there ie removing infinite spawn (stocks, physical takeoff and landing) and slots, importing islands, basically building Midway style into the maps from scratch and then obviously cracking the lua code to enable scripting(objectives, AI, events, etc.)

Ok. BTW, what does lua mean?

  • 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.
  • 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.
