Opinion: World of Warships needs help from BSP developers

Opinion: World of Warships needs help from BSP developers

This is a funny thought, since multiplayer BSP died for Mac users, I've been playing WoW. It's not bad, but it relatively one dimensional compared to BSP. The carrier/plane aspect is terrible, WoW is only good for BB, CA, CL and DD battling and it's fairly good. But man, they could use help from the folks who constructed BSP, on almost every level. Or better yet, it would be great to see BSP reborn incorporating the winning ideas of both games. Again, this is just musing.

Re: Opinion: World of Warships needs help from BSP developers

There are a few things I like about WoWs that if included in BSP would have made it a 5/5 rating:
-Manual aiming of the guns (sure BSM had it, but the way it was implemented in WoWs is the superior method)
-Torpedo salvoes (instead of launching them one by one over he course of multiple seconds - plus setting the spread yourself)
-Torpedo aim assist (maybe nerf it a bit by giving you a general idea of where to aim, but still requiring your skill to hit)
-Spotting (Yes, BSP does have visual ranges and that stuff, but I mean if I am in a DD hiding behind an island I should npt be spotted as in BSM/BSP)

That said WoWs is strictly a ship game so one cannot blame them for their carrier gameplay and excluding many other things.
I played World of Warplanes and its mechanics sucked! War Thunder's arcade mode is PERFECT for aircraft gameplay.

Taking this into account I think both teams could learn a lot from each other. EIDOS does not exist any more, but one can only hope for a third Battlestations title  in the future.

If one could get a decent engine such as Unigine and incorporate the best elements from WoWs, WT and BSM/BSP you'll have a KILLER game.

  • 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
