Map Idea: Battle of the Medditerean Sea (kinda alternate history ull understand)

Story: The Nazi regime in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East finally ended in mid 1945. But the Kido Butai was at full strength and was at full power. Pushing the Americans back to Hawaii and invasion force heading for Honolulu was radioed by Admiral Isamu Takashita stop at bay in San Francisco (Golden Gate Bridge is now a fold brige). Admiral Kimmel and Admiral Nimitz meet on the new Japanese Supercarrier Osaka ( a whopping 90,000 tons with secondary artillery 10 in. 50 AA guns on either side capable of 25 knots and capable of holding 300 planes. With the new American technology they developed helecopters and flew an Apache over. After hours of negotiation the Americans and Japanese finally reached an agreement. The United States would supply the Japanese navy with oil. And the Japanese would not invade anymore of the American Empires territories such as Panama Canal Hawaii or Alaska. The United States carrier fleet was just as strong as the Kido Butai with 5 Supercarriers (could not alter balance in the pacific cause they were just finished and were on their way through Panama Canal) to the Japanese 3. The Supercarriers were defending Hawaii and Alaska with Battleships at Panama Canal. The U.S sent a fleet over the the Medditereanean to help against the remaining Nazi forces in the Balkans. Japan who was moving into the area with the original Kido Butai forces ( supercarriers invading the Soviet Union) thought the United States was mobilizing for an attack. Japan sent 30 Kates carrying light bombs on reconasaince to check and bombed the Frankliln (the only newer carrier for the Americans there) and docked at Crete to be reparied. 4 Days later the 2 forces met in the Medditereanean to battle it out. (THIS IS AN ALL CARRIER BATTLE I WILL SOON POST SOME NAMES FOR THE CARRIERS AND IM TYPING BIG SO U NOTICE)

Units U.S:
Player 1: CV,CV,CV
Player 2: CV,CV,CV
Player 3: CV,CV,CV
Player 4: CV,CV,CV

Units Japan:
Player 5: CV,CV,CV
Player 6: CV,CV,CV
Player 7: CV,CV,CV

Re: new map idea

I recommend that you choose another Japanese admiral, other than Yamamoto.  He was killed April 18, 1943 when a G4M Betty that was transporting him for inspection of the Solomon Islands was shot down by P-38 Lightnings  (Operation: Vengence).  Since this map takes place in 1945, Why don't you use Admiral Isamu Takashita instead.  He is one of the more...obscure Admirals, and it would be nice to see someone using a less well known Admiral in these maps, to show that in this day and age, there are still some people that have an appreciation for history.

Re: new map idea

Just suggesting... nothing more.  After all, this is your map, not mine.  But it would still be nice to see that

Re: new map idea

In fact, the way I see it, if people aren't very schooled in WWII, they MIGHT know 2 admirals:

Isoroku Yamamoto
Chuichi Nagumo

If they have some schooling, that list MIGHT increase to four:

Jisarobo Ozawa
Takeo Kurita

If they have a lot of schooling, it then MIGHT increase to 8:

Tamon Yamaguchi
Shoji Nishimura
Kiyohide Shima
Seiichi Ito

Re: new map idea

Gunichi Mikawa and Mineichi Koga?

All I know about them is that Koga was killed in '44 when his H8K crashed during a typhoon and Mikawa played a vital role in the Battle of the Bismarck Sea

Re: new map idea

Mikawa was the winner of Savo island. Koga was one of the commanders of the IJN in WW2(Others being Yamamoto and Toyoda) he was also commander of naval forces that supported the landings while the taking of Hong Kong. They are not very known admirals.

Re: new map idea

Oh, sorry Beast, I got a little carried away on that.
Now, the important stuff,
Well, you map sounds like a very good idea, but its gonna be a little tough pictureing it without a map draft (I know I'm starting to sound like everyone else who has said that).  Other than that, this sounds like a great idea.  Maybe this map could get created, if we ever learn to add new units to Midway (Check Beast's other thread on that topic, I got a whole list of potential new units)

Re: new map idea

Sorry about that.  Its just that...
the 1st time was mainly recieved with aggrivation
the 2nd time was better, but it was incomplete
the 3rd, and current list, is the present list we have.  Like Walt Disney said about Disneyland, it may never be completed, because there will always be something new (That is, until we run out of ideas)


And about the all out carrier battle concept, 2 things

1.  So, this will essentially be Operation MI on steroids?
2.  You sure you dont want to do something else to make it uniqer?  Because I have been thinking of proposing a map that is essentially an 80% historically accurate version of the Battle of the Philippene Sea, which was the largest carrier battle in the history of warfare, but I can drop that idea at any time

  • 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?
