Mod that lets you add more AI to Island Capture in Skirmish?

Mod that lets you add more AI to Island Capture in Skirmish?

Hello BSP modders. I am looking for a mod for Battlestations Pacific that lets me add more AI to the slots for Island Capture in Skirmish like you can with the other modes. Yes I know that I will have way less Command Points if I do this but I really want to try the larger maps in Island Capture and it gets really hard for me to micromanage huge fleets of ships and planes in order to not get creamed by the AI even on the easier difficulties. Do any of the current mods that are out allow me to add more AI to the Skirmish Island Capture matches? And if not would it be possible for me to mod it in on myself some way?

Adding more AI slots won't serve any purpose at all in IC.
The amount of CP selected for the match gets spilt up between the players so even if you have 4 AI slots then each AI will get 300CP still totalling 1200CP - just the same as with regular human players.
For this reason the devs coded the game mode to not support this.
What I have seen though is that you can do this on an unranked MP game so if you can somehow trick the game into thinking another human player has joined you might be able to add AI.

  • Axis_Crusher : HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
  • YamatoFavor : Would be great if the models are from Wows
  • 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...
  • SurgeonSasha : Северная каролина («link» ямато 1945 («link»
  • 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?
