Sub counting

Sub counting

Hey all - I was playing Engano with IJN earlier, and something occured to me.
I didn't do him the courtesy of announcing that the US sub had been sunk, which any good team player does. But although when playing as Japanes, you probaly wouldn't understand when they say that the sub has been destroyed, I keep an 'ear out' for these things, and usualy know when the subs have gone.
Again - I think you should always anounce when a sub has been sunk, but do others listen out and keep a sub count?

Re: Sub counting

So...
you are basically saying that whenever we are playing maps with subs, we should announce when we have sunk subs to other team mates to avoid confusion

Re: Sub counting

Yes - it's good idea. Always when i'm playing, i'm trying to count and announce every destroyed sub to the other. Especially usefull on Indian Ocean, USA side.

Re: Sub counting

I reckon so, otherwise other players might proceed with undue caution when there is no sub to cautious off, and it might distract you from other things like torpedo bombers and aircraft.
Although like I said, I usually know when all the subs are dead myself - I hear when they have been sunk - it's just courtesy to tell the team members.
Communication is a winner!
But I guess that what I was trying to find out was how many people just blindly play a map without realising when all subs have been sunk versus those that are more aware of sub status.
Take Sibuyan for instance, you might be tempted to keep moving dd's around, thinking there is a sub lurking somewhere, when actually it has been sunk, meaning you can move the dd's into position to help against air attack.

Re: Sub counting

I agree, communication is vital...

In fact, if a team I am playing with refuses to communicate, I have no choice but to leave the session more often than not because I can't work with a team that won't communicate.

Re: Sub counting

I guess counting destroyed planes would be rather pointess -- "Hey, that makes 31 divebombers shot down!"

  • 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?
