IRON BOTTOM SOUND ag

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 Mikuma, and Mogami, 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.CV,CLDD,DD,DD
2.CV,CADD,DD,DD
3.BB,CA,DD,DD,SS
4.CL,CLSS,SS,DD

Notes:
CV: 2x Yorktown Class
BB: 1x Iowa Class
DD: 7x Fletcher Class, 1x Clemson Class
CA: 2x Northampton Class
CL: 3x Atlanta Class
SS: 3x Narwhal Class
Enterprise/Wasp: 30 Wildcats, 30 Dauntlesses, 30 Avengers each.

japan units
1.BB,CL ,DD,DD,DD
2.BB,CL,DD,DD,DD
3.CV,DD,DD,DD,DD
4.SS,CA,CA,CL,DD

Notes:
CV: 1x Soryu Class
BB: 2x Kongo Class
SS: 2x Type-B Class
CA: 2x Mogami  Class
CL: 3x Kuma Class
DD: 11x Fubuki Class

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)


AK Group: Troop Transport, Troop Transport, Troop Transport, Troop Transport

DD Group: DD,DD,DD (cant remember how many dds and aks there were on trivia's draft so i will check)

Re: Iron Bottom Sound

I recommend sticking with Avengers on the Carriers beast.  The Devastator never saw military action in the Guadalcanal campaign.  In fact, they never saw action beyond the Battle of Midway.

Now that I think about it, the only major ship that TBDs ever succedded in sinking was the CVL Shoho at Coral Sea

Re: Iron Bottom Sound

No one will want to be Japanese player 4 so lets balance 'er out a bit. Switch the CLs with CAs, and 1 DD with CL.

Re: Iron Bottom Sound

Rough draft is done and worked succesfully. I also need list of key units except the Hiei, Kirishima, Washington, Wasp, and Enterpise.

Re: Iron Bottom Sound

See?  I told you that 2 Kongos can tke on an Iowa no problem, provided that the proper tactics are used. 

BTW, can you post a picture of what the overall map looks like Katarya, I'm eager to see how it looks compared to the draft I put up.

Re: Iron Bottom Sound

Eh the positioning hasn't been done yet but the merch fleet is where its supposed to be and same with the Japanese BBs but I didn't touch the US yet. I promise I'll get one after I position them better.

  • 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
  • Runsva : mpak*
