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.

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.

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.

  • 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
