Changing Seaplane Payload

Changing Seaplane Payload

Is there a way to make a seaplane launched from ships and subs carry a different armament rather than the typical depth charge on ships and bombs from subs. Say, I wanted the Kingfisher on my Cleveland to carry bombs rather than depth charges or the Seiran on the I-400 to carry a torpedo rather than a bomb. Or is the ability to change plane payloads limited to headquarters with airfields and not for ships?

Re: Changing Seaplane Payload

I think its possible to mod the payload of seaplanes but this would overpower subs and surfate ships.

How would it be overpowered?

Re: Changing Seaplane Payload

You can change this very easily.
Open vehicleclasses.lua, navigate to the ship you want changed then look for a line called CatapultStock.
Here you can say which class must be launched (anything from a floatplane to a B-29) as well as how many the ship carries, how many can be launched at a time and their armament. To know which number to use for the armament you need to look up the Equipment line for that plane.

If you get stuck give my modding tutorials a run.

  • alantay11 : Is there a way to fill up the empty ship slots when using SurgeonSasha's Yamato? Or is it my game not showing the models?
  • Axis_Crusher : Thanks, but we already implemented both ships in the Advanced Warfare Pack a few months ago...

  • 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?
