Siege Clash

Siege Clash

This map appears to be almost impossible to document because it's so weird - I can't seem to find what to shoot at. Any suggestions? I'm seriously at the end of my rope here, as I've killed just about everything I can imagine. The fact you're a PT boat in really stormy seas doesn't really help.

So does someone think they can figure out what it takes to win this map?

Re: Siege Clash

OK Arrow, decided to play this one for the first time and it seems that's all you're supposed to do ("as I've killed just about everything I can imagine"). You are only assisting the assault and need to help by keeping the LST's alive. Use torpedoes on DD's and AA gun on planes and other PT boats.  I won the battle and that's the only thing I did.

Re: Siege Clash

Yeah, that's what I did too. The weird bit is how strength sometimes falls in huge increments and I have no idea what causes it. The fact you're in high water doesn't make aiming your AA guns easier either. I have a feeling it's got to do with the Coastal Guns but I can't seem to get close enough to be sure.

I guess there isn't much strategy to that one then? o.O

Re: Siege Clash

I'm guessing the strength drops in big increments when you lose something important like a LST or DD. I'll try it again tonight and see if that's the case. I have to agree with you on those waves...they are a real pain in the butt for aiming your AA.

Re: Siege Clash

The major targets seem to be:

-The American LSTs
-The Japanese Fubukis
-The Japanese Coastal Guns
-The American Fletchers
-The planes

If the Japanese objective is to simply destroy the LSTs, the map isn't balanced...as the Americans have nothing to destroy similarly to win.

I doubt it's the destroyers, because I sink those all the time and I never get anywhere.

I can't be sure if it's the coastal guns as I can't get close enough to kill them.

The planes seem to remove about 10 points apiece when shot down, but that's not the major influence on strength I'm looking for.

...so what is it?

Re: Siege Clash

From what I can tell, the LST's (like the DD's and PT boats) just continue to respawn. The object seems to be reducing each other's points to zero, so you want to keep the respawning to a minimum. It looks like each  DD destroyed is 30pts., LST's are 25pts, PT boats are 12pts, and planes 10pts. So, the US side really needs to concentrate on keeping their LST losses low while killing as many of the Japanese DD's as they can and any nearby PT boats or planes (since the PT's don't have flak, they can only really shoot at planes or other PT's that are around .5 miles or less).

I'd say its somewhat balanced as I was able to win from either side, but I'd give a slight advantage to the Japanese since the LST's don't have as many guns as the DD's to defend against the PT boats. I have no idea about the coastal guns being a prime target since getting that far away from your fleet means less protection for the LST's (which seem to unleash their rockets on them anyway). I went to the coast and took out all the guns and AA emplacements (took me two runs to do), but it didn't seem to help much and, meanwhile, our side took a lot of losses.

So, for the US side, I'd say the best strategy is to stick close to your LST's and provide protection against the Japanese DD's, planes and PT boats while keeping your losses to a minimum (including your own PT boat since that'll cost your side 12pts. everytime you need to respawn). On the Japanese side, they have a wide choice of targets, but I'd say they should concentrate on the US LST's since they're the easiest to attack and sink (while causing them a 25pt. loss in strength).

Hope that helps you out Arrow. Give it a try and let me know how it works for you.

Re: Siege Clash

I thought about trying to cover the LSTs as well, but as you said before the waves seem to prevent you from aiming your AA guns at the opposing side's PT boats easily. Not only that but the LSTs are actually dumb enough to move in toward the island - right on top of its coastal guns. So yeah, I believe the Japanese have a huge advantage on this map.

I'll retry it again but I tried it multiple times from both sides as well. Worst comes to worst, I'll just extrapolate the rest of the map from the data you've given me. That's enough to complete the page at the very least, even if I can't beat it personally.

  • 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.
