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.

  • 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?
  • Mokeo67 : I tried changing the bogue class carrier to a yorktown class in the phillipene sea mission and one of two things happened. The mission either didnt change or the game crashed.
  • Axis_Crusher : No problem
  • Mokeo67 : That is what im talking about. Ill have a look at it later thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : specific mission’s 3_scene mpak file by working on the .lua file. There is where the bonus unit is actually added into the mission (by the script). I haven't tried it myself so good luck.
  • Axis_Crusher : I assume you are talking about the bonus units that you unlock for certain missions by completing previous ones (like the B - 25’s in the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal). The bonus units are unlocked by completing certain objectives in the campaign - so that is linked to your campaign progress. Since that cannot be altered you must look at the missiontree.lua file. This is where the unit will show up unlocked on the mission screen. There are references to allunitslock. Also you will have to edit the
  • Mokeo67 : Thank you I will look in this file. I did unlock all the campaign missions, all you have to do is delete the text after 'prerequisite' and it will unlock. But I havent figured out how to unlock the bonus units.
  • Axis_Crusher : I also prefer it being off, just as most of the BSM community. Most players, however prefer repair to be enabled so that is what we should do. Most of our maps it will be disabled through the script however. If you want to play with the game's repair settings you can find it under shipglobals.lua
