New Ideas for BSM and BSP

New Ideas for BSM and BSP

Hi everyone,

Here is idea worth sharing . . .

First, let me start with Battlestations Midway. I like the idea of having to launch seaplanes from a cruiser or battleships as recon planes, like Battlestations Pacific (BSP).  In addition, be able to select different types of weapons - torpedos, depth chargers, rockets, bombs, and etc - for the recon planes before you launch them - similar to the carrier launching format.

What do you think?

Second, BSP has developed cruiser and battleship recon plane launching capability. However, it would  be a blast to select different types of weaponary as mention above. 

Is this possible?? 

It is a GREAT idea, right!!! 

Thanks for your time and input. Take care, Bushidocode.

Re: New Ideas for BSM and BSP

Im not sure really if its possible, odds are its a game engine thing and well modding something thats hard coded in the game engine is not so easy, we can look into it when the map pack is done, but good chance it wont be possible in BSM.

As for BSP, again game engine thing, at most we can change what it normally launches with but thats about it.

Another idea for BSM, add pocket battleships. There are cool and a serious threat to cruisers. That is all, Bushidocode.

Re: New Ideas for BSM and BSP

Now now....Ghostface is making a program that will allow us to make model files for BSM. With a ton of luck and tons of work we might be able to get in a new unit in the game. But it is not as easy as 1 2 3 or map making. So, sorry but we will do our best to make it happen.

Re: New Ideas for BSM and BSP

Just want to add my 5 cents. The major problem is first working unit imported to game by our modders. After that first one we can expect next 100 ae

Re: New Ideas for BSM and BSP

I did like the turbo feature on the planes in Pacific.  I'd vote yes in regards to having the turbo feature on Midway planes.

Re: New Ideas for BSM and BSP

I, too, liked the turbo on BSP, but I think Midway makes up for it by having truer dive speeds. Doesn't it seem like the Midway planes dive faster than the Pacific planes? But, hey, I'd take the turbo feature, if offered. Liked using it to get away quicker after making torpedo/dive bomb runs.

That one feature is really cool (but i hate to use in combination with TAB - it's moving me to Desktop - grrr...)

But i'm not sure game engine let us change (and add) something like that in Midway. Now we should wait for our Modders opinions...

Re: New Ideas for BSM and BSP

Hi Galm,
It is not the right place to discuss about it.
Ideas have to arrive one by one, I gess admin agree, but for the mpment modders team is very very busy.
But Santa Cruze seems to be interesting, you have to give more details.
Also, do not spam existing mapes

  • 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.
