Iowa Mission Pack and Midway Modders Mappacks 1 and 2 are recommended.

Japanese Battleships

Japanese Battleships

I think Japan has the coolest BBs in BP. My favorite is the Fuso class but the Yamato is the largest battleship ever built. Her 18.1in guns give her a longer range then any other battleship in the game.

Re: Japanese Battleships

I like Fuso class too, but my favorite is Yamato class. I realy love AA flak of these ships. Fuso class has poor AA.

Re: Japanese Battleships

Yamato and her 18.1 inch guns are the biggest in history.

Re: Japanese Battleships

YAMATO was and remain the greatest and powerfull built ship in the world . In my oppinion , if  japanese aerial forces could defend him very good , YAMATO  could win every naval battle and help japan to win the war ad

Re: Japanese Battleships

Leul I think not, particularly after the battle of the coral sea, it became evident that carriers would become the new king of the sea, although those deadly 18.1" trips could do some serious shore bombardment :laugh:, if anything at most she would be an awesome carrier escort nothing would get past her deadly 6" AA ^^  (eat that Atlanta!)

Re: Japanese Battleships

Yamato was  the greatest BB in history, he could kill any allied ship. Japanese could win the war, but they were unlucky, and maybe a little silly.ae

Re: Japanese Battleships

In my opinion - attack on Pearl Harbor and Attack on force Z  finished the battleships dominiation on seas. I know maybe this was like ants attacking an elephant, but that was working well. List of battleships killed by planes is really long. We all know Yamato and Musashi are named as biggest, greatest etc etc, whatever - these ships we're kiled by planes. Americans outnumbered japanese navy with their carriers and planes. And thats the reason they win that war. And reason I prefer planes when i'm playing Midway ab

By the way - Musashi and Yamato did nothing important. Biggest, heaviest, greatest... and no effects....

Re: Japanese Battleships

The plane didn't total eliminated the battleship from naval warfare. The 'Iowas' were used until modern times. Even today Iowa is kept in National Defense Reserve Fleet in Suisum Bay. The battleship rules:cheer: .

Re: Japanese Battleships

Leul, carrier escort as in the little DD's protecting the carriers, completely different from a CVE/Escort carrier

But im sure we can all agree though that the Bismarck was the greatest Battleship of WW2 ab

Re: Japanese Battleships

I aggree with the above yamoto class was the biggest but not nessisarily the best what about the iowa class? there were 4 of them and to this day all 4 still float noone gives them credit the northcaralina bb55 was exceptional in the pacific as well it had the same guns as the iowa class just different caliber and had much more aa cover than the iowa class and I think is basically the same as the dakota class also in the battle against the yamoto I took it out with the iowa class just my 2 cents

  • 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
