map idea (Battle of the Bahamas)

map idea (Battle of the Bahamas)

alright to get this outta the air this is not between japs and u.s.... rather i got bored of same units all over again and i want new enemies... this battle takes place in 1944 but WWII did not happen in this..... rather the u.s and u.k got in a war after the united states landed marines on guadalcanal when the u.k was going to same with many other ilsands.

Map Name: Battle of the Bahamas
Map: All Bahamas islands (this will be big map with 20 minimum players(idk if i can go higher))
Story: Nazis campaign to win the election into German office failed... the Japanese empire rather than expanding sought peace and surrendered all territories to original governments. but tensions between the u.k and u.s for dominance in the pacific grew to high to keep peace... britiain invaded bahamas to get close enough to spark a suprise attack on the united states... wanting florida they bombed cities like Tampa, Orlando, and St. Petersburg (even Disney World(those fucking bastards)). this sparked a war with the united states and u.k being the third between the nations. the u.s while bombing the living hell outta canada(british province still) focused its gulf of mexico troops on the bahamas... on july 3, 1944 american forces appeared over the horizon sparking the first major battle of the war.

units u.s:
1. BB,CA,DD,DD,DD
2. CA,CL,DD,DD,DD
3. CL,CL,DD,DD,DD
4. CV,DD,DD,CVL,DD
notes:
bb: iowa class (wisconsin)
ca: northampton class (houston, louisville)
cl: cleveland class 1x, atlanta class 2x (cleveland: little rock; atlanta: atlanta, san diego)
dd: fletcher( heywood, pope, john d ford,fletcher,kidd,sullivans,cassin young,radford,jenkins,hudson,fullam,bennet)
cv: lexington class(lexington)(36 wildcats, 36 avengers, 36 dauntlesses)
cvl: bouge class (bouge) (plz modd a hermes by changing name to bogue and change flag to america) (17 wildcats, 17 avengers, 17 dauntlesses)

u.k units:
5.CVL,BC,CA,DD,DD
6.BB,CA,BC,DD,DD
7.Aifeild,DD,DD,DD
8. Shipyard,Shipyard

BB: King George Class(king george)

DD: fletcher class (rooks,little,gregory,mertz,callaghan,irwin,preston)
CA: York Class (york,exeter)
BC: Renown Class (renown, repulse)
Airfeild(27 hurricanes, 27 fairy swordfish, 27 b-25s) (i am including b-25s and dauntlesses because of the lend lease program and we dont have any planes in tht category for the brits)
Shipyard: SHipyard 1: York Class, Clemson Class, narwhal class (again because of lend lease program and brits go no subs in this game) Shipyard 2ac Northampton Class (im pretty sure brits had northampton class cas give me more ideas about shipyards)fletcher class, and Renown class BC) (each shipyard can launch 1 unit at time so us will not be swarmed with subs and BCs)

Re: map idea (Battle of the Bahamas)

ya we do need a draft  (admin has told me 1000 times) but other than this the map looks pretty good IMO idk if we can but we should add more units... and if possible add us a CVL by modding a hermes and changing name to bogue and just give it 17 planes of each class since the u.k outnumbers it dramatically in units and can spawn ships

Re: map idea (Battle of the Bahamas)

i have decided to paint a mental picture while we wait for the draft.

ill start with stationary targets:

airfeild will be located on the eastern shore of Andros island, it will be protected by two fortresses on the side where it is and one super fortress on the opposite side of the island..

Shipyard 1: will be located on the eastern shore of the farthest east island of the grand bahamas, it will be protected by 1 superfortress on the opposite side of the island and fortresses on the rest of the grand bahamas islands facing where the americans come in. also will be protected by light,medium,and heavy AA and some coastal guns on the bay outside of the shipyard

Shipyard 2: if going north to south on the 3 main eluethera islands the middle one is where the second shipyard will be, protected by AA of all varieties coastal guns along the shore the shipyard is on (by the way its on the eastern shore again) and is protected by 2 superfortresses on opposite sides of the western sides of the island with a normal fortress in the middle of the western side..

SHIPS:

US:

the u.s fleet will come in directly west of andros islands each ship moving at 15 knots
lead ship is the iowa with the two CAs in the middle of the pack (but the outside protecting carrier from torps) destroyers are in formation like a V around the ships the head of the V being the iowa and maybe one DD behind the CVL and the carrier is dead in the middle of the group, with the bouge right behind it, the 3 CLs will be in a mini V formation around the back of the fleet the cleveland in the middle and the atlantas on the legs of the V

Brits:

Fleet 1:  king george will be in the middle of the fleet with a CA infront of it and behind it

it will have 4 DDs with it 2 on each side of the BB

this fleet will come in from the southwest corner of Great Bahama Bank

Fleet 2:

The second fleet will come in between the main eluethra island and the island where shipyard 1 is

the hermes will be in the middle of the pack with 2 renown class BCs on its port and starboard side

3 DDs will accompany them and will be formed up in  a rectangle where 2 are in the front on the port and starboard sides and 2 are in the back on the port and starboard sides

HOPE THIS HELPS ab

Re: map idea (Battle of the Bahamas)

umm u made a mistake on the u.k ships.... u said that there were 4 ships with the hermes when there are only 7 destroyers and you said that theking george had 4 DDs (a good choice) so what i would change it to is 2 DDs on the port and starboard side but infront of the CVL and 1 directly behind it

Re: map idea (Battle of the Bahamas)

Ok, 2 things:

1.  Walt Disney World didn't open till 1971, so it is impossible that it would be bombed in WWII

2.  Escort carriers never held more than 28 aircraft

But since this is a video game, who cares?

Re: map idea (Battle of the Bahamas)

This is a good map, with great potential if the game engine will allow it.  However, I was told a while back that currently the betatesters and the programmers want to focus on the three maps that are currently being developed.  Yes, I will comment, but dont expect to find someone say that they want to create your map for at least a couple months

Re: map idea (Battle of the Bahamas)

Guys You really should remember - map creating is very long and irritating job. And our Modders Team still trying to find more and more. Some of these maps you can find on our forum are in production stage. Just be patient.

  • 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
