Where are all these beautiful models?

Where are all these beautiful models?

So I see many beautiful models of ships such as the New mexico, other warships and such. But I was wondering where did they all go? Were they never uploaded? Or did SwathyCman's HD crash or just disappeared?  I was hoping that none of these models go to waste as they are great! espeically considering now new units can be added to the game!

Re: Where are all these beautiful models?

They are mostly waiting and piling dust here, almost all of tem have never seen battlestations for what I know.

Ise, Shinden, County...Some have been converted for testing in Midway but never saw a public release...

In Pacific, the County, the Ise and the Yubari models come from here (edited for some part), Nelson is a personal work (not of this quality) thay have a chance to be exported back to Midway in the future maybe.

Re: Where are all these beautiful models?

well i speak not only for midway but for both.  I hope that new mexico class BB gets used.. one of my favorite classes.  Since we see that custom models are not workable.  hopefully you guys can blow the dust off of em and use them now?

I hope to see them in either game.  both would be cool

Re: Where are all these beautiful models?

We still work on it because it's still far from perfect, but yes, new units are already implemented

Re: Where are all these beautiful models?

Some of these models are really good. I too like the Pennsylvania class. Anyway, I saw a topic about thes Pearl Harbor BBs. Unfortunately, they're just models, with no working guns. Perhaps someone who knows how to 3D model can create new hulls.

Re: Where are all these beautiful models?

I just saw the topics. If only SwarthyCman qwould come back... His models are really good. On that subject, I may try some 3D programs some time.

Re: Where are all these beautiful models?

The PH BB's are solid models. You can control them but they have no armament whatsoever (the main guns are part of the model and no AA guns assigned)

I know. I've had maybe 1 hour of practice using 3D programs. It was a Blender [number].[number]

  • 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
