Ambush at Wake Island

In late 1944 Japans navy had nearly been eliminated.  The battle of leyte gulf saw to it that nearly all their new ships and even some of their old ones were sunk in action.  Japan could no longer take on the USN at sea.  They new the Allied forces were closing in fast and with no navy to stop them Japan would soon be facing a ground war on their own soil.  In the case that happened they needed to keep the civilian populations spirits up high.  They may just have a chance at that due to an upcoming Allied mission and their last two great warships... the Yamato and Shinano, escorted by the old ships that happened to evade the Allied onslaught in the Pacific.

With The new fast carriers and battleships the old fleet was no longer needed by the USN.  Just having them sitting around would be pointless so it was decided to put them to use.  Wake Islands was of no use to the US forces now but before the war it was a US base.  It was decided to take it back with the remnants of the Pre-war US fleet.  It will be a walk in the park...

The Japanese by a stroke of luck found out...  And were prepared.

That I am not too sure about, I tend to have problems trying to get CV's to launch more then 9 planes, so I am not too sure on that.

I think the Japanese need the 3rd battleship but that's my opinion

Re: New map ideal

Actually Tipsy to make a carrier launch 12 planes in mp I think you have to change the unit itself

Re: New map ideal

Nice concept.  You say you can't think of a name?  Well, how about one of these two:

The Empire's Last Stand  (Referring to the backstory of this map)

Battle of (Put name here) Island (Naval Battles of WWII were often named after Islands nearby. ex. Battle of Rennell Island)

Re: New map ideal

Or the name could be an eye for eye refering to how in this battle if japanese fleet went to hell they take us with them tht relating to a
Babylonian law if u blinded someone you would be blinded as well.........  This relates cause if us kills a ship they loose one too.... Could also be called gateway to Tokyo

Re: New map ideal

The Empire's Last Stand sounds like the best one but still not quite right since they would have still had plenty of kamikaze units.  Eye for an eye wouldn't be right since by this part of the war they US had more than 14 fleet carriers along with hundreds of escorts and 8 fast battleships, there was no way Japan could have made it even.   I do have an idea now thanks to Triviaman, Ambush at (island name) since the old US fleet would be expecting an easy walk in.  If anyone could give me an island name in the western pacific (close but not too close to japan) that saw no invasion by Allied forces in WW2, let me know.   I tried to find one on bing maps but the names were all in Japanese.

Re: New map ideal

10 fast battleships, actually:

USS North Carolina
USS Washington
USS South Dakota
USS Massachusetts
USS Alabama
USS Indiana
USS Iowa
USS New Jersey
USS Missouri
USS Wisconsin

The Empire's last stand doesn't sound right?  Ok, how about The Emipre's last Gamble?

And about the Islands, I think I found a couple from the Gilbert Islands chain that weren't invaded/didnt play a major role in WWII

  • 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.
