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

Maby useing deck guns or as Tipsy3000 said torpedos. And a map with only cargo ships would be cool to I guess.

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......

  • 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.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
