Unlocking All Units for use on a map

Unlocking All Units for use on a map

Hello, my first post here on the forums. I recently downloaded and have been using the BSmodHG 3.0 and have started looking over some of the lua files. The only thing I've changed is the Renown cost to 1 per ship. That was awesome.

I was wondering if there is a way to have all units available to use on the large maps, aircraft carriers, battleships, planes. I haven't seen anything in the file names to clue me in. I appreciate any help I can get. If I have to manually add in the carriers, how would I go about doing that and what tools would I need?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Unlocking All Units for use on a map

Hi, and welcome.

For what you want you'll have to modify an existing map or create a new one. This is a fairly complec procedure to learn, but I am busy making tutorials on this and I hope to bring it out soon.

If I can use an example... you say you have BSmodHQ update v.3.0 for BSP that means the Advanced Warfare Pack is also installed so I urge you to go to Skirmish and select Island Capture. You'll see after map 8 there will be custom maps. You are welcome to try them out although there is no real functional AI (except for Air Battle over Japan) - this is what is possible with map making.

Re: Unlocking All Units for use on a map

I have added all the units to Dreadnought and Clash but I'm not sure how they will work with the game version 1.2. Do you want to try it out?

Re: Unlocking All Units for use on a map

Hello Thanks Axis, I was thinking that might be the case where I'd need to edit the map. I look forward to the tutorials. I only do skirmish and have seen those maps, I haven't checked them out yet. Is there a map editor out or does it more involve modelling?

Commander, most definitely! I'll give it a try!

Re: Unlocking All Units for use on a map

It involves more scripting than modelling, in short you have to extract the map from mpacks and add units via line of code.

Re: Unlocking All Units for use on a map

Yeah that does sound complex, I was doing my editing in word pad but I didn't dare get rid of any spaces or anything. I have backups though. Well I will wait to see what the tutorials look like when Axis gets them done, also Commander I'm still totally willing to test those maps out. Or are they already in the modhq 3.0. I haven't seen options for carriers and other stuff while playing Dreadnought or Clash

Re: Unlocking All Units for use on a map

Here it is. Feel free to look at the code and even use some of it if you want. Be sure to backup the overwritten files. If you have the space, I would advise a full backup of the "scenes" folder, especially if you plan to try map modding yourself. For the Dreadnought map, all units on the US side will be available. For Clash, the Japanese units are all unlocked. If you have any questions, I am probably not the one to ask as I made these a while ago and am probably a bit rusty now.

  • 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.
  • Runsva : pls help me fix it i really want to play this mod :D
