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!

  • alantay11 : Gdrive mod crashes when i try to load a mission in ijn campaign?
  • 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??
