Re: Upgrade for the Val

Hey, we shouldn't replce the Val.  The Val is a historic plane, and because none survived the war, games like this are the closest way to expierience it.  It was edited anyway when created.  The game says the Val has a 500 Kg bombload, real D3As were lucky to carry 1/2 of that

Re: Upgrade for the Val

Why is everyone assuming the OP wants to replace the Val? TBH the Judy is an upgraded Val no point in upgrading the Val so it can be just as good as the Judy cause then you'd have a useless Judy!

and yes I do know how to upgrade the val if I wanted to.

Re: Upgrade for the Val

Sorry guys,

What I mean to say, while playing Battlestations Pacific (BSP) - Japanese campaign, I not sure which single player mission it was . . . I can unlock the val , via upgrade. To this day, I not sure if I can upgrade the val.

Some wrote that it is the german Messerschmitt Me 262A that can be a val upgrade.

What do you think??

Discussing the point further, on the battlestation Pacific. net website, screenshots #26, there is this plane (Japanese Kikka - Messerschmitt Me 262A) pictured flying by a destroyer or cruiser.  [http://www.battlestations.net/en-US/category/image-galleries/screenshots?page=1]
Please note on BSP Mutiplayer Mod on youtude [www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiLhwr3xpWk ]

Is it true that someone can use this plane on the japanese campaign single player Mod? Or Eidos had plans for this plane but never materialized in the game.

This is a question that I was always curious about.  Thank for your input. Sorry for lack of clarity!!! Take care, Bushidocode

Re: Upgrade for the Val

The Kikka?Its an unlock that you get when you rank up enough. Same with P-80. I think you get Kikka at Lt. but not sure.

Re: Upgrade for the Val

In-game anyway, Kikkas are considered dive bombers (or I would say more like fighter/bombers like the Lightning). From observing them as an opponent in Escort Clash, they are a lot like the Shooting Star. According to Eidos however, they are considerably slower. That said they are capable of equipping the same rocket as the Shinden and the Raiden.

I intend to boost to Fleet Admiral so I can test these out. I'll report back with information on them.

  • Legendary Da : Hi everyone, I have one (or two) quick question about BS:M modding. I try to figure out sp mapmaking, and my first act on it was to convert a MP map to SP. However I can only play as Allies in those maps. What parameter do I have to change to play those maps as Japanese in the respective map .mpak (And where is the parameter I have to change?)?
  • N_Trainz : G'day mates, I just wanted to let those who use Windows 10 and also for those who are having troubles getting the game launching because of Games for Windows LIVE, I made a tutorial of how to get it working successfully again like on Windows 8.1. Its on my channel and here's the link to the video. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : The dictator, I downloaded the mmod2txm and I added four slots to the fletcher and a couple to the lexington.Thanks for the help though.
  • The Dictator : Makeo67 i've explained how to find the unused slots in the topic and the mmod2txm it's a program that has been shared. However there aren't so many ships with unused platforms and sme of them are in wrong positions and for move them you need to know how to change the mmod file. But if you know how to do it you can make new platfors as you want. I've shared the south dakota disposition and this one is the most intersting in my opinion
  • N_Trainz : Well it looks like we have spammers again
  • Mokeo67 : No problem Thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : Not really
  • Mokeo67 : Ok thanks anyway. Do you know who does?
  • Axis_Crusher : Unfortunately I don't deal with that part of modding
  • Mokeo67 : Sorry forgot the link. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : This is the forum topic I meant. The dictator said he found the unused slots in the TXM file obtainable with the mmod2txm, what is this and is it available to use.
  • Axis_Crusher : This is your best bet: «link»
  • Mokeo67 : Also I saw on the forum that ships have unused platform slots. How do I use these?
  • Mokeo67 : I tried changing the bogue class carrier to a yorktown class in the phillipene sea mission and one of two things happened. The mission either didnt change or the game crashed.
  • Axis_Crusher : No problem
  • Mokeo67 : That is what im talking about. Ill have a look at it later thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : specific mission’s 3_scene mpak file by working on the .lua file. There is where the bonus unit is actually added into the mission (by the script). I haven't tried it myself so good luck.
  • Axis_Crusher : I assume you are talking about the bonus units that you unlock for certain missions by completing previous ones (like the B - 25’s in the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal). The bonus units are unlocked by completing certain objectives in the campaign - so that is linked to your campaign progress. Since that cannot be altered you must look at the missiontree.lua file. This is where the unit will show up unlocked on the mission screen. There are references to allunitslock. Also you will have to edit the
  • Mokeo67 : Thank you I will look in this file. I did unlock all the campaign missions, all you have to do is delete the text after 'prerequisite' and it will unlock. But I havent figured out how to unlock the bonus units.
  • Axis_Crusher : I also prefer it being off, just as most of the BSM community. Most players, however prefer repair to be enabled so that is what we should do. Most of our maps it will be disabled through the script however. If you want to play with the game's repair settings you can find it under shipglobals.lua
