What is your best Midway moment on Mappacks 1 and 2?

I don't have any personally. Heck, haven't even played them. My game broke back in July and I have been controlled by schoowork and sports so I haven't gotten a new game. So, I thought I would find out the suspense in these new maps. ab

Re: What is your best Midway moment on Mappacks 1 and 2?

Earlier, I was playing Wolf Pack.  One minute, my fleet oiler is hit by 4 torpedoes.  Its's virtually on it's last leg as it takes on a heavy list.  As the last of the water that could be pumped out was pumped out, I thought I was going to make it...when suddenly I was hit by another wave of torpedoes.  Wasn't so lucky that time.  That has been my most suspenseful moment playing this game this far.

Re: What is your best Midway moment on Mappacks 1 and 2?

Cape Engano - good action. I play using 2 USA CV. Yamato is dead, New Jersey too. Japs lost all Airfields and also Kaga carrier. My teammate on Lexington is not so smart, he easy lost his carrier by light ships (DD, CL and CA) they coming for my last 2 carriers (last american key units). No more ships for USA.

I destroyed Takao earlier, also Mogami is damaged hard, but destroyers and light cruises are close to my CVs. Im trying to destroy these ligh shipos bt they are too close, and they opened fire against Wasp and Enterprise. I have some squad in the skies, and i see all my teammates choosed Surrender and waiting for me. I decided to leave these light ships, all bombers against Mogami (last japanese key unit). When i dive i hear that one of carriers is sinking, but they are busy using artillery so my bombers succesfully attacking Mogami and they are still alive. Hit, another and third. Mogami is sinking. We won. Probably 10 secs more and my last CV would also be sunk. I dont know it was Wasp or Enterprise, because they managed one of them to sink. But no time to check which one ag

Re: What is your best Midway moment on Mappacks 1 and 2?

There was this game on Engano where I was playing as the Japs. My team mates managed to lure the New Jersey into the islands with the cruisers and Yamato made a charge for the carriers and sank all of them, although I took damage down to half of my health bar due to constant harass by the Avengers. Harassment by the destroyers reduce the Yamato to around 1/6 of its life. All other ships were sunk except for the Houston (at 1/3 life) and New Jersey (barely damaged) on the American side and all the airfields and Kaga (2/3 life) plus the Yamato (1/4 life after recovery). During the big action prior to the sinking of the carriers, I expended all my fighters and the Americans nearly expended all their strike planes and fighters, largely due to anti aircraft fire. However, somehow the enemy had forgotten about my Kates, and that I launched them against the New Jersey, which was chasing the Yamato northwards, came to them as a shock. Wave after wave of Kates made their mark on the New Jersey, who was down to 1/6 life and as they move in closer to the airfields, I sank the Houston with air planes and I ran out of Kates, so it went down to New Jersey and the Yamato. At the last minute, Yamato managed to sneak in and took a few shots at the New Jersey before the guns of New Jersey were able to turn from their attack on the airfields to the Yamato. My team won.

Re: What is your best Midway moment on Mappacks 1 and 2?

Wolfpack. Slowly discover that map and start to convince her. I voted to add her for mappack 2 (there was discussion about add or no) but I though, it will be nice gift for all these guys, who loves submarines, and launching them from shipyards on Solomon Islands. But not my personal favourite ag

Now me and some of my teammates, we  like Wolfpack more and more.

Good action. Im submariner, two our subs left, we destroyed 5 AKs. Both our subs coming for last AK (sixth), my teammate is closer, he launching torps and hitting AK, Just seconds after they got him with  depth charges bombs. I have about 50% of life, coming to damaged AK close, there is about 4 DD escorting her. I'm balancing on level 3,5 to stay invisible and when i came close i started to go to lvl 1 to launch torps. When I emerge they see me on sonar and starting to drop some deptch charges very close. I launched torps from 0.3 distance and when i plunged my sub again i see their depth charges exploding so close and takes my life. Torps coming to AK. When i was on lvl 3,5 again with only 10 % of life i can hear 2 hits - it's enough for damaged AK We won!

But next my Wolfpack and similar situation and I failed ab

  • 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.
