Re: Changing Ship Challenge unit from destroyer Heywood to battleship Iowa

Hello.

To change Heywood to an Iowa class you will need to copy the following from the truk.mpak file and paste them into the "Hunt for the Cruiser" mission's mpak file:
-iowa.mmod,
-All the textures in the textures folder,
-All the files inside the sounds folder,
- All the "devices" mmods
-All the contents of the "effects" and "particles" folders

Once this is done you will only have one more thing you have to do:

Find this piece of code inside the hunt.scn file, which is inside the string of folders in the "universe" folder, which is inside the hunt.mpak file:
  }
}
entity "Heywood" (DestroyerGen) {
  localframe -0.7660 0.0000 -0.6428 0.0000 0.0000 1.0000 0.0000 0.0000 0.6428 0.0000 -0.7660 0.0000 -3710.8899 -0.0100 3965.2700 1.0000 ;
  template "USA\SEA\Fletcher-class" ;

  properties (Common, Command, GameUnit, Ship)  {
    "Command" {
      CommandTarget = R "" ;
    }
    Crew = E  CrewXPLevels : Veteran  ;
    FireStance = E  FireStances : FreeFire  ;
    Numbering = I 4 ;
    Race = E  Races : USA  ;
    RepairZoneArea = R "" ;
    StartSpeed = F 5.0000 ;
    Type = E  ShipClasses : Fletcher
}

Yours may look slightly different in some areas, but mine is modded. Don't just copy the next step into your file because it will likely crash. Modify it yourself for a higher chance of success.

To change Heywood to Iowa class, replace "USA/SEA/Fletcher" with "USA/SEA/Iowa" and replace "Type = E ShipClasses : Fletcher" with  "Type = E ShipClasses : Iowa2"

If you do this in the "1_mc_hunt.mpak" file, be sure to copy the modified hunt.scn file into the "0_mc_hunt.mpak" file, or it will not work.
If you do this in the "0_mc_hunt.mpak" file, be sure to copy the modified hunt.scn file into the "1_mc_hunt.mpak" file, or it will not work.

Final step: Pack up BOTH the "1_mc_hunt.mpak" and the "0_mc_hunt.mpak" files with the modified hunt.scn files pasted into them both. Then copy the newly packed mpak files back into your game and you're good to go!

You can do this for any class of ship. If you're adding a Japanese ship to the US side, be sure to change "USA/SEA" to "Japan/SEA"

I hope this has been helpful to you. If you have any more questions or are confused by my instructions please send me a message and I will try to help you as best I can, Paulsface269, Midway modder.

  • alantay11 : Gdrive mod crashes when i try to load a mission in ijn campaign?
  • 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??
