Re: Mappack 2 - final list of bugs and problems which should be resolved

Just to note somthing about this problem
- Truk Engano Moresby - autolaunch for dupe planes.

I have tried a bit to figure out the problem and it eludes me terribly, I believe the answer lies inside the MMOD's which seem to give it some sort of classing of what kind of unit it is so the game engine can respond in return on the auto launcher, however since we have duped the same unit I think there is some sort of ID number to each model inside each MMOD, if there is two ID's for a single model the duped unit's ID is ignored so the game wont really register all the information we wanted on the duped unit, this theory of mine seems to explains why the iowa mission pack levels auto launcher works without any of the new unit coding having to be in the global files so I figure it may have something to do with the duped. units.

Well in my opinion unless we can figure out an alternative fix to this, we should just have a go with only one plane texture for each plane, cause although the new textures makes the old planes look awesome, its not a necessary feature to make the map run and or effects map balancing.

2nd on Kwajalien, whats wrong with the DD's? I kinda ran outta harbor space cause the island only had like 3 slots so I just kinda put them parallel to the island.

3rd on sounds, consider it done =P talked with GFD about this one

but its not a choice! Imagine that, we can add new units, new planes? what in that case ? we can't add them because they cannot autolaunch ? Dupe plane is like a new plane.

Re: Mappack 2 - final list of bugs and problems which should be resolved

Wildcat, Dauntless, Avenger are in prepatch.

We can't change them without Dupe Unit. Or they will be changed for all the game !

So : autolaunch will run with dupe unit if original unit isn't here ? right ?

I'll try that, and tell you the result.

Clouds are white - looks a little strange on evening skies. I'll try to change that colour.

One of them can't go away with IA. he is blocked.

And some ships are positionning on the border of the island, not in the water. And at beginning, falling in the water with a noise.

Re: Mappack 2 - final list of bugs and problems which should be resolved

Yesterday last problem with autolaunch duped planes was fixed. At this moment in our opinions maps are bugsfree and balanced well.

Re: Mappack 2 - final list of bugs and problems which should be resolved

Just out of curiosity what was the fix to make dupe units auto launch? I suspect it was a stupid little mistake we were making or missing a small error

  • 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. :/
