Indian Ocean Raid map!!!

Indian Ocean Raid map!!!

1) now the north sub has 2 options, or go for the CV or go for the BB position 2, Also the jap planes
have the options to attack the position 1 or the position 2. if the dd on 2 will sink (no sonar) sub has
easy job so 1 dd frm position 1 must go to sonar the eastern BB.
2) also the east BB with the ca & cl have the option to attack the jap CVS (if he is noob)
The japs BBS are away  but we have 4 cvs. if the east BB attacks the cv . surely the usa BB with the ca
and cl can manage to sink 2 cvs but he will sink with so many "torps" (both planes and sub will sink it..
The game is bored at the begging for the usa because all the subs hunt the cv or flee and only 1-2
players are active, the other just watching. But now from the begining we have action.

Logically 2 subs will go to 1 and the other 2 to position 2 to attack the CV or BB, also jap planes will
launch a massive attack to position 2 or 1. the usa peep on position 2 has the aircover, the other player
on position 2 also aircover AA, the usa player on position 1 launch fighters and depths. Japs are busy
with the subs and air dog fights.

Re: Indian Ocean Raid map!!!

Huh, little revolution. First of all - very good performance. I see your proposition icluded that replacement we talked about. 2 japan CAs for s CLs. This variation and your modification can improve the gameplay. But we should remember about replacing Renown too. Okay. Only 3 things :

- maybe center US group should be a very little lower (to the south of map), but no more than one row. They always escaping without problems.
- And maybe east US group should be a little higher (to the north of map) but no more than one row. I'm a little scared this battleship can catch japanese carriers too easy.
- change one CL (IJN carrier group) for one CA, change one CA (IJN battleships group) for one CL.

That's all.

Im interesting with The Eye opinion ab

PS: If you have ships icons and empty map, pls contact me. We can add this to Download section. Many guys asked me for these files.

Re: Indian Ocean Raid map!!!

Oh - if you remember - I can't play online, so i can't test this map ac. You guys played this map and you know better what to do, to make this map more balanced and with better gameplay. Okay - these groups looks really nice.

At least please remember - for more historical accuracy pls do not use Iowas or Yamatos here.

Re: Indian Ocean Raid map!!!

at the begging of the map USA is on DEFENCE!!! but everything can chagne in 20 minutes!!!
if those jap BB-CA-CL can close and sink as many possible jap CVS. then the japs will be in defencive mode!!! i mean defence with aa guns... because they have 2 powerfull bbs, 2 cvs and 2 remaining sub.
THE CONCEPT OF THAT MAP IS: from the first moment all players to play (not just watching and boring). and the most important is that for 20 minutes all are ATTACKING and All are DEFENDING!!! JAPS are attacking with CLS -AIRFORCE STRIKE-SUBS to stop the CLOSING usa CA-CL-BB, BECAUSE THEY WANT TO DEFEND THEIR CVS!!!
AND the USA are ATTACKING and together try to defend themselfes and sink as much possible cvs!!!

IF usa dont want to attack early ok... they can easyli retreat and regroup to north!

Re: Indian Ocean Raid map!!!

Im against any modifications before a test of Nemesis concept. Its a nice idea (imo) and this can add more ways for both sides to find the best way to victory. Its a very good performance - lets test this, then we can discuss this.

Re: Indian Ocean Raid map!!!

Okay - in my opinion map is more balanced now. Nemesis idea was great and i think its time to say: Indian Ocean Raid is done. We will get alternative version where east group of USA ships is a little closer to japanese carriers and we can decide, which version is better. 0.7 or 0.8.
Now its time for briefing, end map message (if possible) and second map.

  • 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.
