Rate/Opinions of 2nd Map pack

With the 2nd Map pack released today, and perhaps to my guess some of you have tried it already, you can use this thread to give your opinions on it.

is it good?
is it bad?
Is there a few things you don't like about the new maps?
Is there somethings you would like to change on some of the maps?
Are they too large?
Are they too small?
Too complex?
Too simple?

Those are a few starter questions im asking you the public to get the ball rolling, also please by all means use this thread to show your ultimate undying gratitude for us releasing more maps, or use it to show your massive hatred of us and our new maps ag

Re: Rate/Opinions of 2nd Map pack

I absolutely enjoyed the new maps. Love the new sounds, new skins and particularly the waves. Playing Midway is like watching a movie itself. The realism is utterly engaging.

Wolfpack is very interesting, although the game may take forever to finish.

Truk is very mind-engaging, and although it may seem like an unbalanced map at first, time spent developing tactics for the Japanese side will pay off.

Engano is one of my favourite at the moment due to its balance of units and tactics-heavy gameplay.

Java Sea may be better in a open sea instead of a straits. We already have Vella Gulf, so i was expecting a kind of high speed cruiser open sea battle. However, the concept is interesting and I love the sky colour. Would have preferred a night time battle though.


So far these are the maps that I had played. Enjoyed them thoroughly and kudos to the team that put their heart and soul into this.

I always seem to access multiplayer at the worst times, so I can't write a comment yet.

Re: Rate/Opinions of 2nd Map pack

It would be nice if the Midway Modders made a single player map, so please give me your opinion on that.

Re: Rate/Opinions of 2nd Map pack

I can think of some ideas for single player maps Colonel Duck... its just a matter of if it is possible and if the betatesters will accept my ideas.

You know what a good mod would be... the ability to play MP maps in SP so that if no one else is on u can still enjoy MP maps.

Same here, although I did manage to start a few, and from what i saw they looked awesome. I can't wait to actually try them out.

Re: Rate/Opinions of 2nd Map pack

Boy, I haven't been on in over a month, and I missed the second mappack release? Sheesh... thats why I hate Science Fair..

But the maps look good, so I voted YES.. ab

Qucik question though.. was the Triviaman/Beast09 Map Design (Invasion of Port Moresby) included in Mappack 2? Or did you guys postpone that one for Mappack 3?

Sweet, then I give this mappack 10/10 (although nothing would have changed if Port Moresby didn't make it in..)

Re: Rate/Opinions of 2nd Map pack

Thanks for your opinion. It's always pleasure to read  the opinion of experienced and very god player. I should call this - development and identify new opportunities. When we created mappack 1 - of course we did not know even half of that, what we know now. But... still not all discovered, still some things are mysterious for us. Thus, we'll see what's next. I sincerely hope that one day we will discover how to overcome .mmod file format. That one is most important for us.

Re: Rate/Opinions of 2nd Map pack

I reckon the maps are really good, and I love the new sound effects. The machine guns sound more like machine guns, and less like the neighbour tapping on the wall!
That said, I kept getting confused on Wolfpack, because the torps and depth charges now sound like they actually are exploding, and I thought someone was shooting at me with guns at first.
The Yamato's broadside has never sounded better.

  • 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.
