Super sub monsters

The subs would probably have to meet in the middle of the map and wait to see who comes up for air first........

Re: Super sub monsters

You can actually torpedo a sub while its underwater with another sub, its fairly difficult to do however.

Re: Super sub monsters

SUB vs SUB, i think it isn't interresting to play. But in mappack2 will be a map with subs. 8 SUBs vs 8 DDs+8 cargos.

Re: Super sub monsters

Hmmm......... submarine versus submarine.  I don't recommend it, because that's not what submarines were designed to do.

(WARNING: The following is historical data.  Prepare to be educated.)

In fact, there is only one, single known incident where two submarines engaged in an underwater duel with torpedoes.  On February 9, 1945; the British Royal Navy submarine HMS Venturer sank the German Kriegsmarine U-boat U-864 in the only known instance in the history of submarine warfare where two submarines engaged each other in an underwater duel with torpedoes.

Re: Super sub monsters

Not necessarily. An "anti-submarine submarine" does exist. They are formally known as attack or hunter-killer subs. How do they do this? It is likely that they use anti-submarine torpedoes, which are guided by sonar or other means of detection to the target. However, there is no such weapon in Battlestations: Midway.

The only way to torpedo a dived sub in the game is to be at Level 2 while the target sub is between Levels 1&2 and is about 0.1 nautical miles away. Shoot the torpedo in the direction of the target. The torpedo should head to the surface, but since the other submarine is in its way, it should hit it.

Re: Super sub monsters

I tried ramming a US sub on Sibuyan once with a Mini Sub.....but nothing happened. I think it annoyed the other player.....

Re: Super sub monsters

Try on other map - best choice is Coral Sea. Minisub lvl 1 is deeper than standard submarine lvl 1.

Re: Super sub monsters

To make a subs vs. subs map, there would have to be a new weapon introduced to the game. An anti-submarine torpedo, as I described in my last post, would be reasonable. I don't think anyone here could possibly give a try at that, so we might as well contact Midway Modders to give them the concept.

Re: Super sub monsters

Ahhh yes the only way that would happen was if there was a anti sub weapon. In BSP I did sink another sub with my sub but only with the help of those suicide katens or somthing and that took three tries......

  • 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
