Kamikaze map?

Kamikaze map?

So as we are about to get a working Kamikaze soon.....we need a map to put it on. The currently exisiting 5 maps are not suitable to have them on...so I propose this to you: create a good map idea with Kamikaze and we'll make it and put it in the map pack. Feel free to post ideas here or make  your own thread.

Re: Kamikaze map?

I have a suggestion...

for the map name, let's make it "Coming of the Divine Wind" since this map will essentially be the introduction of Kamikazes to Midway, and Kamikaze means "Divine Wind" in Japanese.

As for a map idea... well I got 3 suggestions:

We could recreate a famous battle that involved Kamikazes, like April 11, 1945; when Enterprise took the Kamikazr that knocked her out of the war.  For that, we'll just have An American fleet (composition to be determined if approved), and the Japanese will just Keep respawning Kamikazes (number of respawns to be determined if approved)

Or...

We could make a Merchant fleet the Japanese Target... about 16 ships large, escorted by 4 destroyers, one per US player.  The Japs will either respawn Kamikazes like you respawn fighters in that Luzon map, OR there will be airfields.

Or...

Something like the idea above, except instead of beng escorted by Destroyers, it is escorted by fighters (type to be determined)

Of course, im just a member, not a guy in charge, so I'll understand if I'm ignored or the ideas are rejected.

Re: Kamikaze map?

Again, you have a free hand no restrictions and yes this map can be large as MP1 maps. A balance of big and small are good. I personally like the fleet vs Kamikaze but if you feel like it, Invasion of Japan is also avaible.

Re: Kamikaze map?

Yes I think the Okinawa is the best, with the fleet vs Kamikazes escorting AKs idea but if any one could make a vidio and post it about this I think this would be the next map idea.

Re: Kamikaze map?

Personally i'm thinking we should just use kamikaze unit on existing maps for mappack 2. Best idea is Kwajalien and Truk, maybe Engano and Java, if you decide to change that map with suggestions by G4D. Special maps for kamikaze? Any new (smart) map is cool, but not sure we should build special maps for that. Still like some ideas i read in this topic ab

Re: Kamikaze map?

The problem is really the work needed. The map is right now done as soon as I manage to put in the pics. Doing that would need a whole redesing of the file and perhaps balancing issues. I wanted a new Kamikaze map because it would also be easier to make then overhauling an existing map. Also lets wait for the rough drafts to be put up, then we'll decide on which map to use.

Re: Kamikaze map?

so have we decided or is the idea still up for grabs?

for the one i proposed i am putting it as a Triviaman-Beast09 Map Design

I think the name should be (for the Okinawa one i proposed) "Ambush at Okinawa" or "The Rise of the Divine Wind"

Re: Kamikaze map?

The idea's still up because no one put any drafts up to take a look at. The name depends on whatever the maker of the chosen idea wants it to be.

Re: Kamikaze map?

Ok, when I get time, I'l make videos for our maps Beast

BTW, I really think our 1st map with Kamikazes should be an original map that we havent started yet, and its title should be "Coming of the Divine Wind" or "Rise of the Divine Wind." See the previous page for the reasons

  • 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
