Alaska Class

Alaska Class

What are the armor/health values of Alaska class cruisers like compared to other heavy cruisers? Because they seem to get shredded by the AI's Mogami and Takao class cruisers when I send Alaskas, along with some Northamptons (to assist) to fight them off.

Re: Alaska Class

Armour does not play that much of a factor relating to damage received. If your armour is 150 and a shell hits you that causes 150 or less damage it will be "ineffective" and if it is more than the 150 of the armour it will do that amount in damage.
I don't have the scripts with me now but when I do I'll give you the HP and damage per round for the Mogami, Alaska and Northampton.

But I do agree with you that the Alaska (being technically a battlecruiser designed to hunt cruisers) is kind of weak, although it might be for balance)

Re: Alaska Class

Well, I do know Alaska class has longer range than any other heavy cruiser in the game, at 1.3 miles, compared to other heavy cruisers 1.2 miles. But if the armor values is the same as other heavys, maybe the Alaska class has more health/hitpoints?

Re: Alaska Class

Re: Alaska Class

Sorry for the delay. I have the stats for you.

Alaska Class:
Armour:120
HP:10500
Damage per main gun shell(Min/Max):240/260

Northampton Class:
Armour:92
HP:6000
Damage per main gun shell(Min/Max):200/220

Mogami Class:
Armour:90
HP:7000
Damage per main gun shell(Min/Max):180/190

I'd say there is a clear difference between these ships. I think the reason our Alaska CA's don't last as long in duel for example is because all 4, or at least 2 enemy CA target you in return.

Re: Alaska Class

Would it be viable in Island Capture? Like, as a flagship for a cruiser battlegroup or something.

(Maybe one of the reasons it doesn't last long is because of it's size, because of that, incoming shells is liable to hit the cruiser rather than missing it. The Alaska class is longer than a South Dakota class when I compared them, but not as wide, so since the cruiser is typically broadside when engaging a enemy, it presents a large target for shells to hit.)

You have to play Island capture and see if its viable but i think it is because the Alaska is as big as a battleship and it is far superior to any cruiser afloat(except when you fire a salvo of long lance torpedoes at it!).

Re: Alaska Class

On a map you can unlock the Alaska the chances are good you can unlock the Iowa or Montana instead. On smaller maps DD unlocks are generally preferred (and sometimes CA unlocks are not available)

  • 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
  • Runsva : and i copied every file to the mpak folder in the bsp directory, and when i try to run it it just crahes onthe main menu screen
