Ironbottom Sound preview script

Ironbottom Sound preview script

Well, with Ironbottom Sound nearing completion, I figured that a preview should be made for this map.  Well, I will understand if this script is declined, but I figured I should share my ideas anyway.

(Black background)

August 9, 1942
USS Quincy (CA-39) is sunk in the Battle of Savo Island
(clip of a CA in action, then being sunk by Jap cruisers)

(Black again)

November 13, 1942
USS Juneau (CL-52), sunk by I-26 after being crippled by a surface engagement
(Clip of sub on patrol, then it puts its periscope up, zooms in on crippled Juneau, fires, then a shot of her sinking)
(This bit in particular will also debut the new silouetting bit subs now have on this map)


(Black again)

Around this time, the USS Cushing (DD-376), is ambushed and sunk by 3 japanese destroyers

(respective action)

(Black)

November 30, 1942

USS Northampton, CA-26, sunk by destroyers in battle of Tassafaronga

(Respective action. Taking a bunch of torps, and sinking)

February 1, 1943

USS De Haven, DD-469, is sunk by an air attack

(Cycle of action and black repeats)

October 11, 1942

Destroyer Fubuki is sunk in the Battle of Cape Esperance

(Action, then black)

November 15, 1942

Kirishima is sunk by USS Washington

(Action, then black)

November 15, 1942

Also a victim to the USS Washington is the Destroyer Ayanami
(just a shot from binnocular view of Washington sinking it)

November 30, 1942

The Destroyer Takanami is sunk in the battle of Tassafaronga by USS Minneapolis

(Action, then black)

What do all of these ships have in common?

They were all sunk in an area of water known as Sealark sound

(Action in background)

But when the Guadalcanal campaign is over, for more than 40 ships, and hundreds of sailors, this small patch of ocean becomes their final resting place

And when the war is over, Sealark Sound recieves a new, more appropriate name.

Relive the fights to the death, of one of the most legendary battlefields of World War II
(Fades)

(Appears) (shot of sinking ship, preferribly Kirishima, in background)
IRONBOTTOM SOUND


Of course, that is how I would do it from a historical standpoint.  I don't know if the preview has already started being worked on, so this thread might be ignored all together.  But at least my idea is out.

BTW, I still have gotten no comments on my idea for the picture that appears on the map seletion page, so I will post it here as well:

A view through a submarine periscope, looking at an Atlanta class CL.  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!

Coming soon

Re: Ironbottom Sound preview script

No offense to you Trivia but I don't think its needed anymore. We are planning on releasing maps very soon. So no need to make a preview which takes hours to make.

Re: Ironbottom Sound preview script

Oh...ok.  I understand.  But like I said, I like sharing my ideas. But, speaking hypothetically, can you tell me what you think of it anyway, like if it was accepted

Re: Ironbottom Sound preview script

Is it my fault I like sharing my ideas!?  And I did it like this as a tribute to the hundreds of men for whom Ironbottom sound became their final resting place!

Re: Ironbottom Sound preview script

Trivia calm down. You asked for what I thought and I said it. Over 20 Million people died from the Soviet Union alone in WW2. Compare that to some 800 on the Juneau. Yes it is sad but its war and torpedoing a warship is perfectly in the rules of war as it is sinking a warship of the enemy. For example who cares about Shokaku or Shinano or Kongo?All were torpedoed by submarines and sunk them. Or Stalingrad 265,000+ German and Allied troops were encircled and over 220,000 fell prisoner or was killed.

Re: Ironbottom Sound preview script

Ok.  I'm sorry i got a little upset.  I just wanted my ideas heard, and I get it... this one stinks.

If it is possible, tell whoever is in charge here to delete this whole thread, I get it.

Re: Ironbottom Sound preview script

Sorry guys - very busy last days. Ironbottom Sound definitely should have his own trailer, but last days we did many things with maps pictures tests uploads etc etc... So there is no IBS trailer ao Maybe i'll try to record and edit all these movies soon.

Re: Ironbottom Sound preview script

So... you do like the script admin?

BTW Katarya, I did somethinking, so here is what I believe.  Rather than previews, we should still make these little movies for the maps not as previews.. but rather as... advertisements of sorts, to let people know about us.

Re: Ironbottom Sound preview script

Thank you.  However, out of respect, from now on I will only release preview scripts with your consent, seeing as Katarya said you made good previews before I came around.  Also, I will only do them for maps released from TBMD.

  • 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??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
