change Operation MI ?

I am thinking about creating another MP map base on MI because most of us don't like that map, (but i like that island)

so I thinking adding ships to the map, like in the US campaign Turning Point at Midway where the Japs boat and CV attack midway and US send a CV to help out

I made few plans for this map vote for which one you think its the best, then i going to make that one...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Plan 1 : the same terrain as Operation MI, so one island in the middle, have two AF and a shipyard everything stay the same, but then I going to add some japs boats (this can be change later)

group 1 japs at north west, 2 CV, 2DD, 1CA
group 2 japs at south west, Kongo BB, 2 CA, 2 DD

for the US I will add

group 1 US at north east, 3 CV, 2DD, 1CA
group 2 US at the middle, maybe 4 Clemson DD
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Plan 2 : by just adding few boats and call it a new map some of you might think its little cheap, because its so simple
so I thinking instead of MI making this super soloman instead but it won't be MI anymore

For japs
adding the 2 small island with AF from the Plane challenge Force Z and a soloman island with the shipyards

maybe 2 AF 2 shipyard or 4 AF 4 shipyards


For US
adding shipyards and AFs
maybe 2 shipyards 2 AF or 4 shipyards 4 AFs

Re: change Operation MI ?

no BB's...i'd say max some extra DD's and maybe 1 CL
Operation MI is an air battle and it wouldn't be a good idea to add BB's and Ca's here IMO

Re: change Operation MI ?

Hey - no offence - any idea is good etc etc, but im waiting for multiplayer version of Lombok Strait !!

Imo Lombok primal version (single player) with these changes proposed by Kwiatek can kicks ass. Super Midway map concept is good, Super Solomon too, but AFTER Lombok!!

Re: change Operation MI ?

well Idk if i going to be working on Lombok Strait or this map first, because Lombok Strait is bit harder and i think MI isn't going to take long... but just keep building on this MI idea and I will do it "later"... not sure when...

so instaead of BBs and CAs then I will put
we can put a lots more CVs like 8 lol that be a great air battle, or we can put like 6 DD with 2 - 4 CV ?
idk you guys want a super air battle or with lots of boats ?

Re: change Operation MI ?

Personally we shouldn't change any stock maps for several reasons.

1. They make a good reference board

2. We can spend our time and resources developing more original new maps based on new ideas.

3. For the current time being we have too few actual new maps, after about 2 map packs we could consider doing a reconstruction map pack which would improve certain stock maps that people rarely play to make them playable again.

Re: change Operation MI ?

Well I had created a 128 ship map and made it work succesffuly at an Alpha phase and it lagged soo damn bad it was like you had connection with 1 dotx10(you would have squads shotdown without you realizing they were.). However 80 should work as that had 16 carriers and this has 8 plus Indian ocean works fine and this has only 2 more carriers



PS MI has 7 CVs and 2 Afs.

Re: change Operation MI ?

It lagged because of a lot of units. I'm hosting often and i know that effect. Any launched squad and any launched torpedo can increase that lag.

  • 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?
  • Mokeo67 : I tried changing the bogue class carrier to a yorktown class in the phillipene sea mission and one of two things happened. The mission either didnt change or the game crashed.
  • Axis_Crusher : No problem
  • Mokeo67 : That is what im talking about. Ill have a look at it later thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : specific mission’s 3_scene mpak file by working on the .lua file. There is where the bonus unit is actually added into the mission (by the script). I haven't tried it myself so good luck.
  • Axis_Crusher : I assume you are talking about the bonus units that you unlock for certain missions by completing previous ones (like the B - 25’s in the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal). The bonus units are unlocked by completing certain objectives in the campaign - so that is linked to your campaign progress. Since that cannot be altered you must look at the missiontree.lua file. This is where the unit will show up unlocked on the mission screen. There are references to allunitslock. Also you will have to edit the
  • Mokeo67 : Thank you I will look in this file. I did unlock all the campaign missions, all you have to do is delete the text after 'prerequisite' and it will unlock. But I havent figured out how to unlock the bonus units.
  • Axis_Crusher : I also prefer it being off, just as most of the BSM community. Most players, however prefer repair to be enabled so that is what we should do. Most of our maps it will be disabled through the script however. If you want to play with the game's repair settings you can find it under shipglobals.lua
