One Way to Tokyo

One Way to Tokyo

Map: Tokyo, Japan



Description: After finishing the nuclear bombs the United States presidnet Harry S. Trumman ordered they be used on key Japanese cities. B-29s Enola Gay and Bockscar dropped their heavy payload on the cities Nagasaki and Hiroshima leveling them to thin piles of dust. The Japanese held their heads high and didn't surrender. September 17, 1945 numerous squads of Japanese bombers carrying Baka bombs flew of airfeilds of Iwo Jima,and Okinawa annihalating them. Because of stormy weather an attack on airfeilds in Saipan  was canceled. Days later weather cleared but the American heavy cruiser Louisville was said to be carrying another atom bomb. They believed the next target would be Osaka and immediatley sent Baka carriers out to bomb the Saipan Airfeilds. Protected by kamikazes the strike took out all airfeilds and decominshed 2 aircraft carriers and sunk a destroyer. Saipan was meant to be a distraction as the real atom bomb was in the Aleutian Islands and an enormous U.S task force was moving in to disable the last of Tokyo's defenses and have the invasion force move in afterwards. If Tokyo fell the Japanese Empire would be a snake without a head.

Re: One Way to Tokyo

Now this is obviously unfair in sea power 1 Fuso can outfight an Iowa(Fuso causes 3000 max damage per salvo or 1200 blast, Iowa causes 2520 and 900 blast.)10 heavier armor does not make much difference as in KGV vs Fuso/Kongo fights as Japanese player mostly wins. Also I do not believe we can put P-38s on CVs however I will perform some experiments on this(P-38s normally cannot be launched on and landed on carriers) and no we do not have Jills. A picture would help and in the short run Japanese have strong air dominance. I recommend you changing American fighters to F4F and Japanese to Zero. Do not pin your hopes on P-38s being on carriers. I will report in around 20-30 mins with whether or not P-38s on carriers can be done.

Re: One Way to Tokyo

Unfortunately in my experiments (I used 3 SP and 2 MP maps) P-38 cannot be launched from carriers and neither can Gekko. However if you want to make the battlefield a little confusing we can put Jap. planes on US carriers and other way around. (Also includes airfields as in Force Z I use B-17s.)

Re: One Way to Tokyo

Just replace one BB with a Mogami CA and make other BB Kongo since US should have BB superiority.

  • 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
