new map ideas

new map ideas

Since we'll know all we need to know on how to make a working map soon

I thought it be a good idea to start a topic where people can post there ideas for a good map

So post ideas  here


Also note that posting you idea here doesn't automaticly mean that your map will be made.
Its yust there for me and tipsy3000 to find original ideas that we can work with.

Re: new map ideas

My first proposition. There was no template how to add proposition, so its my own concept

Map overwiew:

A small amount of US units (carrier + 2 DD + 2 CL is detected by Imperial Fleet. They starts attacking this group, but there is another US powerfull fleet.

Note - Japanese has a big advantage in the air and with their subs. US fleet has more battleships. They should use their planes and destroyers carefully, to prevent japanese air and submarine superiority.


Indian Ocean Raid (historical map)

based on Coral Sea

http://battlestations.eu/components/com_agora/img/members/51/IndianOceanRaid.jpg

Imperial Fleet

slot 1  CV-IJN01 CV-IJN02 SS-IJN03 CA-IJN04 DD-IJN05

slot 2  CV-IJN06 CV-IJN07 SS-IJN08 CA-IJN09 DD-IJN10

slot 3  BB-IJN11 CA-IJN12 SS-IJN13 DD-IJN14 DD-IJN15

slot 4  BB-IJN16 CA-IJN17 SS-IJN18 DD-IJN19 DD-IJN20


Total - 4xCV, 2 x BB, 4 x SS, 4xCA  6xDD

Key units - all CVs




US fleet

slot 1 CV-US01 BB-US02 CL-US03 DD-US04

slot 2 CV-US05 BB-US06 CL-US07 DD-US08

slot 3 BB-US09 CA-US10 CL-US11 DD-US12

slot 4 BB-US13 CA-US14 CL-US15 DD-16


Total - 2xCV, 4xBB, 2xCA, 4xCL 4xDD

Key units - CVs and BB-US09, BB-US13



Note - There is no place for Iowa or Yamato class. Please add Fuso Kongo New York or Renown class.

In fact this battle was won by IJN. I hope there is not too many units, but if is, tell me - i can reduce the list of units ab

Re: new map ideas

That's another great news Gamming-for-dummys, !!

You know I trusted all the time You are the only person who can do this ab

I think i will finish my new map concept today evening (maybe tomorrow morning - a little busy with some commercial jobs)... I'm also trying to save all these graphics files as a template for others (map and units icons). I will add these files zipped to Download section. I hope this can help someone who decide to build his own new map concept.

  • N_Trainz : it shouldn't crash any of the IJN missions, just one mission has the history of crashing in the Challenge missions 2, I don't know the name as its been a while I last loaded this mod
  • alantay11 : Gdrive mod crashes when i try to load a mission in ijn campaign?
  • 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. :/
