King george V overhaul

this is yust far  future talk but.....

the King George is arguementably the weakest bb in the entire BSM game ( minust the renown, maybe)

yet in reallity its more than 10000 tons heavyer than the new york meaning a lot more armor

but as it is now many ppl would pick the new york over the KGV anytime (myself included)

it does not  make sense that a bb that is so much heavyer and build about 25 years later than the New york would be this bad

and an other good arguement:

its the flagship of the Brittish navy

So even if we make new models of the game to add a new brittish battleship, it would  not make sense that it we made an older ship that would out perform the KGV

so that leaves 2 options

1.either we make all brittish battleships even crappier

or

2. we overhaul the KGV

*naturally this means the kgv will become to unbalanced for the titans map and  Indian ocean

but i have a solution
we replace it with another homemade bb with 10 cannons
this shouldn't cause crashes to anyone that does not have the changes to the map

(alddough i'll have to experiment with it in the future to be sure)

take your pick

Re: King george V overhaul

Hmm - i'm not sure about option (Yes or No), and i'll put my vote later ab

IMO Prince of Wales isn't so bad battleship. It can be easy compared to any japanese battleship Kongo and Fuso class and can fight 1 vs 1. IMO only Renown class is clearly the underdog. Prince can also be repaired much more, than japanese battleships (when using tricks with repairs).

Re: King george V overhaul

Hmmm... If the King George V class isnt very good to some people, why don't we try to make another British BB unit?

I got it!  HMS Rodney and HMS Nelson, the Nelson class Battleship.  With a main battery of 9 16-inch guns in a 3x3 arrangement, it should be a decent unit!

Re: King george V overhaul

Now that represents a problem...a Nelson would be an equal with Iowa if we don't mod armor as it'll be 190 armor and 9 16 inch guns or a slower copy of the Iowa.

Re: King george V overhaul

Ok...
then to make the Nelson class more...unique, we either have to make it slower or faster than Iowa, or have better or thinner armor than Iowa

Re: King george V overhaul

I was thinking of a copy of Vanguard or we shall that UK had "access" to other Allied BBs so that opens up a massive range of other BBs I would say to match Fuso and others the Marat with 12 12in guns or the Courbet with similar armament. We should also perhaps help out the Japanese with some modded BBs resembling German BBs.

Re: King george V overhaul

Its going to be too weak..8 guns=match for Kongo.....To make Nelson equal to Japanese BBs it must be have less then 180 armor(normal value for bbs) It should be stronger then KGV and as strong as Fuso.

Re: King george V overhaul

Ok, so... are we in agreement that we have decided on the Nelson class Battleship or what?  Because if you check my list on Beast09's post reguarding new units, we only got 3 British ships so far, and I'd like to increase that number to 4

Re: King george V overhaul

I was planning on a predreadnought but they're way tooo powerful. For example Lord Nelson class(not Nelson class BB with 9 16 in guns) has 4 12 in 10 9.4 in. This makes 14 big guns total and as these guns can go through bb armor and fire faster the predreagnoughts are off this as in this game they would only have weak AA as weakness but would literally kick the ass of any BB we have in the game. But I am thinking of a platform to put the guns on. Thats usually what takes time in modding  ^^ for me

  • 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??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
