History: During the Battle of Guadalcanal "the Slot" was a hot spot for Japanese warships to bombard Guadalcanal and Henderson Field. The Japanese commander Abe brought a force of 1 CL, 11 DDs, and 2 BBs on a course to destroy U.S forces on the shores of guadalcanal and destroy Henderson Field. He wanted a clear shot at the beaches so the Cargo Fleet in the eastern zone of the slot could move in. If the Japanese had succeeded then the U.S most likely would have lost the battle. Luckily for them their recon reported the force and they moved in with 2 CAs, 8 DDs, 3 CLs, and the Enterprise elsewhere in the battlefield. After the battle was over the United States had won but it was only the first of two naval battles of Guadalcanal (we are only doing the first in this battle).

Now like Operation: Ten-Go we (Trivia and I) are aiming for historical accuracy but fairness at the same time so I included some extra units (the U.S CV the Wasp, Japanese CAs Tone, and Nachi, and Japanese Carrier Soryu) We intended for 1 side to have the aireal advantage and the other the BB advantage to allow different experiences on the map.

You may notice I included the AI controlled fleet of Japanese Minekaze Destroyers and Cargo, Troop, and Oil ships. I did this to again preserve historical accuracy.


units us
1.Enterprise,Juneau (atlanta),Cushing(fletcher),Laffey (fletcher),Sterett (fletcher)
2.Wasp (yorktown),San Franscisco (northampton),O'bannon (fletcher),Aaron Ward (fletcher),Barton(fletcher)
3.Washington (iowa),Portland (northampton),Monssen (fletcher),Fletcher (fletcher),Narwhal (narwhal)
4.Atlanta (atlanta),Helena (atlanta),Trigger (narwhal),Plunger (narwhal), Shaw (clemson)

Enterprise/Wasp: 30 Wildcats, 30 Dauntlesses, 30 Devastators (idk if they can go on carrier but if not then Avengers) each.

japan units
1.Hiei (kongo),Nagara (kuma) ,Samidare (fubuki), Murasame (fubuki), Asagumo (fubuki)
2.Kirishima (kongo),Tone (tone), Teruzuki (fubuki), Amatsukaze (fubuki), Yukikaze (fubuki)
3.Hiryu (soryu),Nachi (tone), Ikazuchi (fubuki), Inazuma (fubuki), Akatsuki (fubuki)
4.I-15 (type b), I-17 (type b), I-19 (type b), Harusame (fubuki), Yudachi (fubuki)

Soryu: 39 Zeroes, 39 Vals, 39 Kates


I added a jap cv for fairness and same with subs and second us cv... We were Aiming for again 80 percent accuracy (ca for japan was also for fairness but will be a tone class)

ai fleet(send ships away from us fleet this is for historical accuracy)

Toyama Maru, Oryoku Maru(troop transports), Tsushima Maru, Yoshida Maru, Kosei Maru, Junyo Maru, Sei-Kyo Maru, Seisho Maru(cargo ships), Hario, Hayasui  (fleet oilers)
Akikaze, Hakaze, Hokaze, Minekaze, Namikaze, Nokaze, Numakaze, Okikaze, Sawakaze, Shiokaze, Tachikaze, Yakaze (minekaze)
I WILL LET TRIVIA DECIDE ON NAMES OF THE AI FLEET

Re: TBMP

Good job on selection of units, except...
its Juneau, not Junea
Laffey, not Lafey
Hiei, not Hei

Beast, please make sure all of your speeling is correct, the game programmers already mispelled Chicago on the Solomon map, and I dont want that to happen again

Anyway, more importantly, make sure you all leave comments when we get a map draft up, because we plan to become a major map idea creator in the future.  However, we are yet to establish a rate of release of ideas.

Re: TBMP

Must say this rather unfair. The Japanese unfortunately do not have BB advantage. Its kind of like taking on a Yamato with 3 Renowns. Who will win?The Yamato most of the time. And the 2nd US CV will take some of the BB health off.

Re: TBMP

Not quite.
You are forgetting.  In the end, it all comes down to the players, not the units.

Re: TBMP

Oh, and by BB advantage, I mean NUMBER of BBs.  Hey, if used properly, 2 Kongos CAN take down an Iowa

Re: TBMP

Look, I'm just considering the variable of player expierience.  Remember Samar?  Well, I will have you know that I once sank a DD, CA, the CV AND Yamato on that map, and my ship survived the conflict.  That can only mean one thing:  Even though my BB was less powerful than Yamato, I still brought it down probably because I was more skilled than that player.  So, point for "Experience over units."  And BTW, I really dont want to argure, I am just trying to state a point by backing it up with information

Re: TBMP

guys stop bickering now katarya is kinda right this is not really fair units but trivia is right to its based on player... in suriago i sank the 2 fusos and 1 mogami with 2 renowns and tht is extremely unfair (i used planes on other CA and DDs) but the point is its experience and i wanted to spread out the japanse flagships to spread out american air attack

and katarya if your not busy can you tell me if this is a pretty good idea (historically speaking)

Re: TBMP

Actually, the sheer amount of AA from 10+ ships the the Hiryu-Kirishima fleet alone should be enogh to stop any air attack

Re: TBMP

Yes Samar this is like Samar and yes I never said it didn't depend on American skill but it would be like the Japanese having 3 carriers to American 2 in addition to the 2 the Americans have. Also with a good aircommander who concentrates on the enemy BBs and a good BB commander the Japanese can win the map but the Americans can easily too. I mean I can sink Yamato %50 of time with an NY. If the enemy is noob and gets under 1.0 then I can at least destroy his hull if not the ship itself.

Re: TBMP

Please forgive me if I made you angry Katarya, but one of the three points that Triviaman-Beast Map Productions follows is "Historical accuracy to the furthest extent."  And, if you know about WWII as much as I do, you would know that one of the most famous battles of Ironbottom Sound was USS Washington vs. Kirishima.  Well, for the historical accuracy part, we...
    . Named many ships on this map after actual ships sunk in Ironbottom
    . Incorporated Washington vs. Kirishima into this map, and we added Hiei to complement Kirishima, because both were sunk in Ironbottom Sound, and together they stand a chance against Washington, provided that they use the proper tactics.
Due to certain factors that I don't want to go into right now, we decided to settle for this.  After all, when the draft is posted, it will only be the 1st draft.  We can always tinker  around with it as we get more opinions.

Re: TBMP

No no don't worry you didnt. I also understand the historical point and yes I do know the story of the Kirishima and how she was sunk yes the Hiei was also sunk in Ironbottom sound.

  • 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.
