Please visit www.gameranger.com, download Gameranger client and make new account. You can find other Midway players in the Gameranger rooms. BS:M patch 1.1.1 is required to play online battles. Iowa Mission Pack and Midway Modders Mappacks 1 and 2 are recommended.

New suggestion for Battlestations

New suggestion for Battlestations

I was thinking to do a remake of this site. Basicly

    [*]A New Site Theme
    [*]A New Site Name
    [*]A New YouTube Channel
    [*]A Facebook/Twitter page
    [*]Forum using Invasion Power Board
    [*]New Ranks.
    [*]New Badges.


Let's start this all over again so we can become more interesting and do everything properly. because this site theme is very old and quite frankly boring.I'm not sure but i think that will attract people in joining the site and get more people to play Battlestations Midway / Battlestations Pacific.


Thanks and goodbye.

Re: New suggestion for Battlestations

You better take up this with the admins. They probably won't like this. We can still implement spam security (maybe) and a YouTube channel. We already have a facebook.

Re: New suggestion for Battlestations

Maybe I could do the channel. Depends on who is the better video maker.

Re: New suggestion for Battlestations

Why don't you take care of Battlestations Midway and I take care of battlestations Pacific? I already got a channel called PacificModders you make channel called MidwayModders.

What do you propose ?

[*]A New Site Name

Well the url name of the site/forum is quite clear, why change it ?

i2Cold wrote:

[*]A New YouTube Channel

For what ? I mean there are private channels for each person who want to upload their work/stuff, maybe have a topic with all youtube channels reunited would be better than this.

i2Cold wrote:

[*]A Facebook/Twitter page

ditto with Adm2805

i2Cold wrote:

[*]Forum using Invasion Power Board

Wazzat ? Can you explain ?

i2Cold wrote:

[*]New Ranks.

well ranks are just for the guys who post the most so the more you post, the more you are serious business, which has no sens to me. I'd prefer a reputation system for each post for a forum account. For example all people unhappy by the crap I tell in the shoutbox topic could have negative rep me for being such a bad poster ah

i2Cold wrote:

[*]New Badges.

Again, are people really interested in this ? I mean you join the forum to have shiny ranks & badges ? No it is content, game news and a living community that makes a good forum. See the shoutbox, I just have to make one bad post and I get half of the forum on my back in less than an hour, well it means that I'm bad at internet, but also means the forum is much more active that it some months ago. we're still gtting more people active eventually even if the 2 games begins to show their oldiness and the almost-certitude we have that those are the only one we'll have.


Well whatever if someone wants to change the forum design, I'm not against but I'm not the forum owner, so it's not me who decides :]

Most of these ideas have no real purpose. The site is fine as it is.

Re: New suggestion for Battlestations

Hmm it's gonna be tough to understand that its not always about you? It's mostly for the customers that join this site expecting something from us. If you ask me the look of the site is very important. That's my opinion.

Re: New suggestion for Battlestations

I, for one, have no problem with your suggestions and I think maybe you're right (for once, lol), the site may need a facelift, I mean more than 50% of the forum is unused and will maybe never be used...As an admin I never navigate with the forum view because there is something like 40 forum sections in total (not kidding) and I don't count the subsections.

For the sober theme with a battlestations screenshot as a background, I think it's pretty good, and it's changed sometimes so it isn't always the same thing (this sentence is so clever...)

So, I2Cold, what do you propose exactly ?

Re: New suggestion for Battlestations

I follow Oomperial with most of what he sais.

Though we could use a unified YouTube account to post all vids of new maps (and maybe re-post the old ones).
We also need to advertise more for our facebook and YouTube account, right now Midway Modders has only 19 likes, that's by far not enough.
We could use a wider variety of screenshots in the background, maybe let them alternate.

For the rest everything seems fine to me.

Re: New suggestion for Battlestations

what is this crap? twitter? facebook? this is a site that caters to a niche crowd of a niche game that was never massively popular that is now several years old. youll never have large numbers of people interested as on day one.

We dont need this social media crap for modding of a game, those who know the game will seek the mods out, not like there is many other places to get mods for this game to begin with.

  • N_Trainz : it shouldn't crash any of the IJN missions, just one mission has the history of crashing in the Challenge missions 2, I don't know the name as its been a while I last loaded this mod
  • alantay11 : Gdrive mod crashes when i try to load a mission in ijn campaign?
  • 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. :/
