Making Other Ships Submersible

Making Other Ships Submersible

Hi, I'm just new in modding BSP, I wonder if there is a Way you could make other Ships Submerge like Submarines in the Game?  ab

Re: Making Other Ships Submersible

I've done it and it's actually pretty easy but it messes up the camera. You can change the class of any unit. I changed the Kikka to a fighter rather than a dive bomber so the ai will attack enemy planes. Say you want an Iowa class sub? Sure  ab

Re: Making Other Ships Submersible

Near the bottom of the vehicleclasses.lua entry for each unit  you will find these lines:
["Type"] = "BattleShip",
        ["UnderwaterArmour"] = 260,
        ["Unlock"] = true,
        ["UnlockID"] = "",
        ["WaveStern"] = 288,
        ["Width"] = 33,
Of course, the values will be different for each. All you have to do is change the "type" value to whatever you want.
At the top of the vehicleclasses entry you will find this:
    [59] =
    {
        ["ArmorIndexes"] =
        {
            [1] = 200,
            [2] = 230,
            [3] = 230,
            [4] = 200,
            [5] = 200,
            [6] = 196,
            [9] = 200,
        },
If you want unlimited air supply, add these lines above "["ArmorIndexes"] ="
                ["AirReloadTime"] = 0,
        ["AirRunOutTime"] = 9999999999,
Enjoy!

Re: Making Other Ships Submersible

What Do you Mean to change the "Type"? Do you mean i should change the "battleship" to "Submarine" so it will act like a submarine ?

Re: Making Other Ships Submersible

Yeah, I did that once. Added the 1945 Yamato guns to a B-17. Had this big plane with this enormous gun on top that fires three shells as either AA or artillery. Epic stuff. You can also switch between firing modes just as on a ship.

  • 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. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
