Attack on the Indy

Attack on the Indy

Battle: Attack on the Indy

Topic: Japanese send a submarine to destroy the Indianapolis but fail... this time they send an entire fleet to ensure its destruction after they hear its carrying more "precious cargo". can the american force with the Indy help fend off the mighty fleet?

units: (small map for the sake of velcors idea)

USA
1. CV, DD,DD
2. CV, CA, CL
3. CA, DD, DD
4. CA, CL ,CL

Notes:

CAs: Northampton
CLs: 2x Atlanta, 1x Cleveland
DDs: Fletchers
CV: Yorktown Class (30 wildcats, 30 avengers, 30 SBDs)

IJN:

1. CV, CA, CA
2. CV, CL, CL
3. CV, DD, DD
4. SS, DD, DD

NOTES:

CVs: Shokaku Class (30 zeroes, 30 kates, 30 vals) ( on ONE carrier make it 17 zeroes, 17 kates, 17 vals to make it fairer)
CA: Takao Class (2) Tone Class (1)
CL: Kuma Class
SS: Type B Class
DD: Fubuki Class


AI FLEET:

Indianapolis (make it a northampton with its name Indianapolis)

goals:

USA: fend off the attacking japanese force and ensure that the Indy makes it to the island

JAPAN: Destroy the Indy and prevent the "precious cargo" from reaching the island

map: all i request is that there is an island (small no AA arty fortresses shipyards or AFs just an island)  in northwest that Indy has to be escorted to. US fleet starts in one group with Indy in the middle in the southeast corner of map

Japan fleet starts about 2 squares over from island going in a downward angle with sub every jap ship in a formation


NOTE IF US U DONT HAVE TO DESTROY ANY SHIPS BUT THAT IS SMART!!! and plz dont make the Indy's AI suck

Re: Attack on the Indy

Realistically beast, the Japanese fleet wouldn't have 3 CVs, because don't you remember the state of the Japanese carriers at this point?

Unless, do you have some clever backstory to explian this? (You are good with those)

Re: Attack on the Indy

This could be an alternate history one, that is parallel in many ways to RL, but this wasn't mean to be a realist map. It was just a map meant to have fun.

Re: Attack on the Indy

I figured it out beast.  How about this:

     Following the submarine's failure to sink the ship, Japan now grew desperate.  Realizing how dire the situation was, the admiral of the combined fleet ordered that Japan's last three operable fleet carriers (Jun'yo, Amagi and Katsuragi) be prepared for battle, despite a dreadful shortage of fuel and pilots.  They were able to muster up just enough to get each carrier to a full complement.  It was do or die: if they succeeded, then Japan might get a significant morale boost, and the war would gon on.  If they lost, then Japan's loss would be inevidable, with only time standing in their way.

Re: Attack on the Indy

Unfortunately, at this point, no.  This is just a proposal at this point, until we can get one of the 5 (More likely 4) map makers on this site to approve of this idea and make it.

  • 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.
  • 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.
