Ideas of how to mod Midway even more

Ideas of how to mod Midway even more

With two multiplayer maps out over the last several months; it is now quite clear that we can create multiplayer maps and new skins for existing units.  However, it has come to my attention that no one has made a list of ideas for other ways we can mod midway.  After looking around the site, and doing some careful thinking, I am ready to fill this void on the site.

Here's what we know we can do:

     .  create new multiplayer maps
     .  create new skins for units
     .  create new sounds

Here are some ideas that I came across:

     .  Changing the loading screen

Well, here are some Ideas I think are good enough to CONSIDER.  Being only a significant member and not a modder, moderator or administrator, I can only suggest things like this, I can't make them offical.

     .  Changing the video that plays in the background in the main menu (We've seen the same thing for 2 years now, I think we should add other montages to acompany it)
     .  Creating single player missions.  We have successfully created 11 multiplayer maps, but I would like to see some single player maps get added as well.  In fact, we can start by creating single player interpretations of the maps we created.
     .  Making multiplayer missions playable in single player, So that way when no one else is on we won't have to be denied the right to play the multiplayer maps.
     .  Creating new units.  A 200 unit list can be found on beast's "Who Would Win" thread.  Organized by myself, at least 15 people suggested ideas at one point or another.  I don't want that list to go to waste, so let's figure out how to do it.
     .  A while back, someone (Tipsy, I believe) said he came across a level that Edios never completed, something about guarding a crippled carrier, playing as the Japanese.  I say we complete that level, and not let that idea have gone to waste.

Well, that's all for now.  If any of you have more ideas, I'll add them to this list.  And to the administrators, moderators and modders; please consider some of the things that I have just listed; I don't want to have written this thread for nothing.

Re: Ideas of how to mod Midway even more

I know what you are talking about, but 1st I think we should see if it is possible to create single player maps in the first place

Re: Ideas of how to mod Midway even more

Somehow, this thread got overlooked very quickly... so I decided to bring this thread up.  Please read, there might be an idea or two here that just might be good enough to be considered.

Re: Ideas of how to mod Midway even more

Didn't we add the Australian Flag when we did Invasion of Port Moresby?

BTW, Adi_Pol, could you please post only ideas that I didn't already list... It's kind of confusing trying to figure out which ideas you posted that are new to the thread and which ones I already listed.

Re: Ideas of how to mod Midway even more

Really?  Just out of curiosity, what Flags do we have access to?

US, British, Dutch, Australian and Japanese?

Re: Ideas of how to mod Midway even more

Yes. Not less no more. We need to find how to add new flag (and nationality!) to the game.
In fact,  noone was looking for it too much. These flags which are available it was enough for us.

Re: Ideas of how to mod Midway even more

Well, If I find some flags of nations that would be good additions, should I post them here?

  • 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.
