So......why are you here?

Personally, I have an interest in the ships and battles and read about them before I discovered the game.
I have no problem with dying and am not a bad loser, because as a spectator, you get to watch the guns firing and the tracer streak out from the aa guns -a pleasure in itself.
The new maps are beautifully rendered and the sound effects are better than ever, and....since finding this community, I enjoy talking with and playing with the people here.
The tactical aspect is also challenging and thought stirring - especially during quiet moments in the bath.
As I say to my girlfriend every evening when I start the laptop to play BSM - "I'm going to spend some time with my family"
So for me it is all of the above.

Re: So......why are you here?

Personally I like planes. I like that speed and dynamic. I know it's not a sim game and i know it;s not strategy. But IMO it's prefect mix of tactical and action game. I also know that, I can use some jets in some other games and they flyiing faster.

I played BF2 and i used F35 SU Mig and J-10 in that game. But it's not that what i like. Because second war planes are much more playable. And that what i love is Pacific theatre. I think no need to explain why.

About community - I found some really cool peoples here. But generally I think our community is a little lack of activity. Just watch Youtube for new Midway movies or activity here. Just some peoples. But I hope our work and activity will keep that game alive. And that's what we all need. Some opponents in GameLobby ab

PS: At the last - think positive - some guys doing really good job here (im not talking about me ab )

Re: So......why are you here?

@EST ever Played 1943? now thats a great plane game, my old camp use to have a free arcade machine that had it and you can play it for free so everytime I had the chance I played it, awesome classic game, never got the story line till I found it again on an old game service provide whose name I cant remember (gamespot...gamegate...gamewheel cant remember....).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1943:_The_Battle_of_Midway

I never knew it was about midway till I just read the wiki of it, well anyways the gameplay of it was awesome and thats what mattered.

Anyways why am I here? Its all about the ships man! There is extremely few very good ship orientated games (Warship gunner anyone? that's the closest thing to BSM before it came out) and even fewer good historical ones. I go drooly over ship models and go gaga over thinking about 16" guns going blazing!

Re: So......why are you here?

Tactical challenge of course !

I am not interrested for "full fire with all guns" - so "Steel Monster" isn't my prefer map ! - , but i like strategy - and need strategy for "Steel Monster" too ! -.

The "historic" and multiplayer mode do for me the 2nd reason.

Yes - also previous versions like 1942 or whatever it was called. I played it about 22-24 years ago.

Re: So......why are you here?

I agree Tipsy - I love watching the turrets turn - the most satisfying bit is when all the lights go green for fire! 10 x 8 inch Takao guns firing is awsome in both sight and sound!

Now all I need is a remote control Mogami model..........

Re: So......why are you here?

Speaking of gun turrets, I'd like to point out a bug for some ships on some maps: every now and then, there won't be a recoil action.  I know it's a little detal, but personally I think the recoil action adds to the realism, and is a bug worth being delt with when it appears.

Re: So......why are you here?

Wow! Eagle Eye! But you are right, no recoil, no good it's just not as satysfying somehow. Even though I didn't spot it myself, It is affecting me now that you mention it.

Fleas anyone?

Re: So......why are you here?

For the ships and their stories. I am very interested in warships and naval combat, and I am particularly fond of WWII naval engagements.
I would read any book that I could find, watch any movies etc, and it seems that BS:M was made for me.

Personal note: This is indeed an interesting topic.

  • 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.
  • Runsva : pls help me fix it i really want to play this mod :D
  • Runsva : and i copied every file to the mpak folder in the bsp directory, and when i try to run it it just crahes onthe main menu screen
  • Runsva : mpak*
