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!"

  • 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.
  • 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
