Operation: Ten-Go preview script

Operation: Ten-Go preview script

Well, with my map quite popular among much of the Battlestations.eu community, I think Operation: Ten-Go has great potential to be a popular map in Midway.  Well, if there is one thing I know about the accepted map proposals, usually they get a cool preview to go along with them, like that 9 minute one on youtube of Indian Ocean Raid.  Well, after thinking about how I would make the Operation: Ten-Go preview, this is how I would do it, if the preview creation was up to me:

1st shot:  black background

"April 6, 1945" appears on screen

It dissapears, then the following sentence appears:

The United States is fighting and winning the battle of Okinawa, and every day, they get one step closer to potentially invading Japan itself.

dissapears, another sentence appears:

Desperate to push the Allies away, Japan sends Yamato, the pride of their navy, and a small escort screen, on a suicide mission.

(In game footage, showing Yamato fleet underway, to get it, I would have a plane fly over the Yamato fleet)

(Words appear on screen) A few hours after departure, the American Submarine USS Threadfin spots the Yamato fleet

(Scene changes, using one of the Japanese subs from Shipyard 2 preforn a periscope view shot of the Yamato fleet, 1st on a couple Destroyers, then Yamato itself)

Unable to attack, it alerts the carriers of Task Force 58

(Plane flies over USA carrier fleet, to get a "Group picture")

Words on screen:

April 7, 1945 10:00 AM, the carriers lauch 386 aircraft to intercept the fleet

(Shots of carriers launching planes, 1st from other ships, then from the actual planes)

(Then about 5 seconds of the huge plane formation in flight, perhaps focus on one squad, then have it look around)

(Word appear on screen)  12:30 PM, April 7, 1945.  The Yamato fleet comes under attack.

(Shot of planes beginning their attack run.  Personally, I would have a single squad fly overhead, as a "camera" of sorts, and have the attacking planes spread out)

(about 30 seconds of action here, planes attacking, some falling from the sky, shots  of Yamato and the other ships firing their AA batteries)

(Word appear)  12:46, a torpedo hits the light cruiser Yahagi, killing her entire engine room crew (Brief black background, words appear)  14:05 Yahagi sinks, taking with her 445 (Shot of sinking Yahagi)

(Back to the black background)  14:05, Yamato, after taking more than 8 torpedos and 15 bombs, finally sucombs to her wounds, and starts to capsize port (Well, since we cant do that. I'd just get a shot of Yamato sinking by the bow port, if Im lucky)

(Black background appears after Yamato sinks)

Out of the 386 planes that attacked, only 10 were shot down, and only 12 Americans are killed.

Out of the 10 ship attack force, the Battleship Yamato, the light cruiser Yahagi, and 4 of the 8 destroyers are sunk.  It is estimated that as many as 4,000 Japanese sailors died in the attack (If I were doing this, I would also say...), including Admiral Seiichi Ito, and Captain Kosaku Aruga.  (Ito was in charge of the Yamato fleet on its final mission, and Aruga was Captain of the Yamato)

(In game footage is in background, of the airial attack fo the Yamato fleet)  (Words appear)  Now, YOU have a chance to reenact Yamato's final mission.  (Next sentence after this one dissapears)  Will you relive history?  (Shot of sinking Yamato)  Or rewrite it?  (Shot of Yamato shelling, and sinking the carriers). 

Final shot:

Relive... (Dissapears)

Operation: Ten-Go

Coming soon



Of course, that is how I would do it.  When it is actually done by the guy who does make the previews, IF he decides to do one, it will probably be very, very, VERY different.  But hey, a guy can dream.

Re: Operation: Ten-Go preview script

Re: Operation: Ten-Go preview script

Thank you admin.  BTW, you do understand why I wrote it the way I did, right?  For the sake of preserving historical accuracy to an extent, because in this day and age, with so many kids focusing on the now, and not the then, I figured that if I proposed a map and trailer based on historical accuracy, maybe it will rekindle an interest in WWII in my age group (Im 15)

Re: Operation: Ten-Go preview script

no offense but one map and preview trailer will not kindle it very much.... most ppl who play this are in ther late teens or twenties (maybe 30's like EST or Katarya) so you will need a major shift to do that but still like the concept

Re: Operation: Ten-Go preview script

Good to know.  Cant wait to see the finished piece.  BTW, Jap planes did NOT escort Yamato fleet, so please try to refrain from using them, for the sake of historical accuracy.  Well that is what I request anyway.

  • 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.
  • 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.
