(Almost) new Midway unit

(Almost) new Midway unit

Thanks to nice idea one of our users, we decided to try to do (almost) new Midway unit.

Now first look of Kamikaze Zero in new paiting.

We still can not use new unit, but we can change some aspects and parameters. Now - i just want to ask you, do you like new Zero ?

Re: (Almost) new Midway unit

I was helping Katarya last night with the Kamikaze concept and its nice to see a real representation of the plane. We were just using regular units with the new characteristics to test the potential. Looks a lot nicer now that it has its own model. Only thing I would change are the two bombs since the thing is already a flying bomb and I don't think they were armed with anything else due to the weight. Other than that, it looks like a thing of beauty....too bad we have to crash them into ships. ag

Re: (Almost) new Midway unit

2 can sink a BB but I'm going to make to the amount of torps without repair(2 DD, 4 CA) but as a result there will never be 30 of these in a base. Perhaps 10 or 15.

Re: (Almost) new Midway unit

Well one Kamikaze is enough to sink an Escort carrier (As we learned from CVE-63), yet a Tin Can (Destroyer) could take 4 and still remain afloat (As we learned from DD-724).  Theoreticly... it should take...

1 Kamikaze to sink an LST or Cargo ship

3-5 Kamikazes to sink a Destroyer

6-9 Kamikazes to sink a Light Cruiser

10-13 Kamikazes to sink a Heavy Cruiser

14-20 to sink a Battleship

10-12 to sink a Carrier

And yes, I an only guessing.

These pictures are taken from Saving Tulagi and I just tested normal Zero plane. So... I just started Zero armed with 2 x 100 kg. Hope Katarya finally will discover how to block arming these kamikaze units with bombs ag

Re: (Almost) new Midway unit

It's possible to add a copy of a unit but with a different paint job by using a hex editor.

That's interesting. You know some tricks, which (im talking about me) could be very usable for us. What You think about give us more info about that hex editor trick (i know how to use it, but i dont know where i should look).

Re: (Almost) new Midway unit

Thanks for that tutorial. I must contact with other modders and discuss with them a little. Do you have more tricks with  MMODS ?

I have tried importing BSP MMODs into BSM but it won't work. Inside the BSM MMODs you have filenames like "simple.mvfm" and "ship.mvfm" but in BSP MMODs you get "pssn4nubn4ussn2.mvfm". We need to know more about these MMOD features. But you can use BSP .DDS textures in BSM.

Re: (Almost) new Midway unit

I gave it a go, works like a charm.

http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/2797/worksu.jpg

Its a niffy way of duping a unit for different purposes IE "Kamakaizes!" But i quickly went through  the MMOD with the Hex editor, yea no way to add completly new units using it, mainly cause it doesnt give you the complete stuff inside it only bits and pieces more or less the texture stuff is popping up. What it needs to show more specifically is weapon placement, Model files, doodad placement, and movable effect parts on the model.

Though it still has its uses ab

Re: (Almost) new Midway unit

Using the same hex-editing steps, you can also duplicate ship turrets, AA guns, torpedo launchers, etc.
Use your hex editor to edit a device's MMOD file and then afterwards edit the deviceclasses.lua and vehicleclasses.lua in GGame__OnInit.mpak

This is a Jap cruiser with Hinomaru on turret A and turret Y:

  • 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.
  • Runsva : pls help me fix it i really want to play this mod :D
  • Runsva : and i copied every file to the mpak folder in the bsp directory, and when i try to run it it just crahes onthe main menu screen
