1945 Yamato with proper AA layout

1945 Yamato with proper AA layout

so from what i hear the 1945 yamato will not be available in 4.0 in-game either in the campaign or the skirmish modes. i have been looking forward to the new pack as i heard long ago that the 1945 yamato would be in game. as it stands in 3.0 is does not have the proper AA layout. Can anyone make me a 3.0 installer with the yamato 1945 with the proper AA layout useable in the entire jap campaign and skirmish modes? id even be happy to pay for it too.

i asked axis about it and he said it wont be.  only thing i care about regarding battlestations pacific honestly. the 1945 yamato currently with 3.0 has beehive shells and a much better AA layout and from my perspective that is what should have been in the game when it was made and NOT the 1941 yammy. (well honestly what should have been in game when it was made is the proper AA layout)

Re: 1945 Yamato with proper AA layout

From what I know, Axis has a 1945 Yamato with the correct AA and the 1944 Musashi with correct AA and since Musashi and Yamato both appear on maps from 3.0 and 4.0 I dont see a reason not to include them.

i don't either. makes no sense to me why he can't just make them usable in the campaign AND skirmish. i can't play with people anyways with the pack installed and i don't think any of my friends can either.

Re: 1945 Yamato with proper AA layout

I have the yamato 1945 (and 1944) with the proper AA layout and it's easy to import in the game!
Do you want to have it in the missions and in skirmish like a default unit or only use it as an unlockable unit?
Because if you want the second option it would be very very easy to do

Re: 1945 Yamato with proper AA layout

If I have to decide on making 2 people happy by making it an unlockable vs over 200 who are complaining I am going to side with the over 200. Simply put the Yamato is a powerful surface vessel and planes are one of the few viable ways of taking it out. Now if you have a flak spammer like that which can take out squads of planes in a single volley it effs up the Island Capture mode. Simple as that.
It will be in a mission dedicated to it. Operation Ten-Go.

If you don't want to download 4.0 because of this it is up to you. I am merely going with the majority.

I'm not mad at you axis, not at all. Just what is going on. If dictator can simply replace the yamato in game or in the installer then it's fine. And I can't play with other people anyway so......what would it take just switching a few (?) files in the game or installer? I could pay you for your time if dictator isn't able to do it.

Re: 1945 Yamato with proper AA layout

Give me until tomorrow. I'll prepare you a patch that will update the existing Yamato 1945 with the 3.5/4.0 version.
You'll have to replace and modify some files, but I'll walk you through.

Off topic question: will Yamato 1944, Nagato and 1944 Musashi be in Sibuyan Sea?

then why do you play the game? (not trying to be rude or anything) in ww2 that's literally all the yamato did on her last mission.

  • N_Trainz : it shouldn't crash any of the IJN missions, just one mission has the history of crashing in the Challenge missions 2, I don't know the name as its been a while I last loaded this mod
  • 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. :/
