Ironbottom Sound new screenshots...

Ironbottom Sound new screenshots...

I decided to make new topic because old topic about Ironbottom Sound has more that 100 posts ab

And here are new screenshots, probably with final design of sky and sea. Imo after old Commodore C64 based texture, these new textures looks awesome.

Re: Ironbottom Sound new screenshots...

No - its not lagging - when i hosted that map for another beta I had Fraps running and I noticed 30-45 fps. All details highest and clouds shadows foliage etc etc. That texture looks great and best of all it's only 8 bit file, (previous test with 32  bit texture failed because of lags), and these 8 bit instead of 32 bit is probably a reason of no lags.

Re: Ironbottom Sound new screenshots...

I'll fix it up. Also full list of changes I plan to make for .6
1. Hiei renamed Ise and reclassified to Fuso to balance more
2. AKs are objectives
3. De-Haven renamed to De Haven
If this doesn't balance it out then time for more drastic actions.
Well Iowa/Washington can eat both Kongos for dinner then take out the rest of the fleet by itself and all at the same time. So its rather problematic for the Japanese and this might help to balance.

Re: Ironbottom Sound new screenshots...

Beast its not going to as historically accurate anyway. So this will make it slightly more as Hiei was not a Fuso class while Ise was a repeat of the Fuso's.

Re: Ironbottom Sound new screenshots...

I think I have a solution to the problem.  If my memory is correct, the Hiei was sunk 2 days before Kirishima's duel w/ Washington.  So... we will have this map take place on November 15, 1942 (The day Kirishima was sunk), and that can give us the excuse to replace Hiei w/ Ise.

Re: Ironbottom Sound new screenshots...

Now that is out of the way, if I could just get someone to hear my idea for what the picture for Ironbottom Sound should be.  I'll repost my proposal here so it is more likely someone will read it.  This picture will not only be historically accurate, but it will take advantage of the new silouetting feature to this map:

A view through a submarine periscope, looking at a crippled Atlanta class CL (preferibbly in battle damaged form).  The reason:  One of the biggest tragidies of Ironbottom Sound was the sinking of the USS Juneau (CL-52), an Atlanta class CL.  The USS Juneau, crippled by the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal in November 1942, limps off the battlefield, only to be sunk by a submarine.  The picture would be done like this not only to give a historically accurate picture, but as a tribute of sorts to the 800+ men who died that fateful night.  In fact, only 10 of the Juneau's crew survived!

  • 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
