Strike On Tulagi, Multiplayer version

Strike On Tulagi, Multiplayer version

Gentlemen, it has been a while, but I have finally come around to releasing another map idea.

I present to you, Strike on Tulagi (multiplayer)

I was playing the single player map version yesterday, when I got the idea to make a multiplayer version out of it.

It's my first attempt at a small scale map idea, so it may require some work, if approved.

Once I upload the map picture to a point where you can actually see it clearly, I will post all the other, important details

Re: Strike On Tulagi, Multiplayer version

this is what remember:

I scanned the picture, saved it as a JPEG, and when I tried to post it using the standard method of posting pictures from my computer, that happened.

I found it to be weird because it didnt happen previously.

Re: Strike On Tulagi, Multiplayer version

When I said "that happened" I was referring to how when I try to make the picture bigger, it becomes less clear and how when you click on it to see the whole picture, only part of it is visible

Re: Strike On Tulagi, Multiplayer version

Ah OK. Try to download software which will give you simple resize picture options. I can recommend IrFanView image browser. Free, very fast and has nice features. If you decide to use it - pls remember about Plugins.

One of things on my To-Do list is scale pictures on forum (it can currently be done only by forcing scale and save them smaller). I need something, what could scale picture to fit browser window on-the-fly (when pcture thumbnail is clicked).

Re: Strike On Tulagi, Multiplayer version

Ok, since I can't seem to do anything about the picture, I'll just give the stats.  The top is clearly visible anyway when you bring it to full size.  The bottom only has the American fleet; and in a few sentances I'll elaborate on where the American ships are located.

AMERICAN UNITS:

Player 1: CV DD (30 F4Fs, 30 SBDs and 30 TBFs, 4 slots)
Player 2: CA DD
Player 3: CA DD
Player 4: CL DD

SPECIFICS:

1 Yorktown carrier, 2 Northampton CAs, 1 Atlanta CL and 4 Fletcher DDs (Plus 6 AI controlled LSTs)

The US Fleet is divided into two parts: The Primary fleet has six ships (The carrier, CL, 1 CA and 3 DDs) and is located between E8 and F8.  It is a 2-3-1 formation.  The front row, from left to right, is: Fletcher DD, Northampton CA (Player 2 units).  The middle row, left to right, is: Fletcher DD, Yorktown CV (Player 1 units), Atlanta CL (Player 4).  Bringing up the rear, directly behind the carrier, is another DD (Player 4).  The secondary fleet, consisting of a Northampton CA and Fletcher DD (Player 3 units) is about 2 1/2 squares to the west.  They are separate because they are escorting the 6 LSTs from SP. (Which are AI controlled)

JAPANESE UNITS:

Player 1: CA DD
Player 2: CA DD
Player 3: AF DD (30 A6Ms, 24 D3As, 24 B5Ns, 12 G3Ms, 4 slots)
Player 4: SY DD (10 H6Ks, 10 H8Ks, 10 PTs, 4 slots

Specifics: 1 Mogami CA, 1 Tone CA, 1 Airfeild, 1 Shipyard, 4 Fubuki DDs (Plus 4 AI controlled cargos)

    Player 1 has the two ships in the upper left (Mogami group), player 2 has the two ships in the upper right (Tone group), player 3 has the airfield and destroyer on the west side of Island, player 4 has Shipyard and destroyer on right side.  Basically, Tulagi island is set up exactly as it was in SP (the docked AK, the 3 AK fleet, the parked DDs and so on)

US OBJECTIVES:

Primary:
Sink the cruisers
Destroy Airfield
Destroy shipyard
Destroy fortress (Like from Single player, Tulagi island will have the same AA and coastal gun defences, including fortress)

Secondary:
Sink All 4 cargos
Ensure survival of at least 2 LSTs
Destroy Tulagi defenses (AA guns and coastal guns)

Japanese Objectives:

Primary:
Sink Yorktown
Sink cruisers
Sink Destroyers
Hold the Island

Secondary:

Sink the LSTs
Ensure survival of at least 1 AK

Re: Strike On Tulagi, Multiplayer version

Oh, I forgot to ask: should I make a video on this map, like what I did with Ten-Go and Savo Island, or is the verbal descriptions I gave enough?

Re: Strike On Tulagi, Multiplayer version

It appears that some people are starting to talk about making maps again... so I've brought this idea back up so people can see it.

What do you think guys?

Re: Strike On Tulagi, Multiplayer version

I like the stats. The two US and two Japanese cancel each other out with equal firepower. The Atlanta pretty much neutralizes the Japanese airfield, along with the Yorktown's air wing. Plus, the two side's DD's cancel each other out (with slight Japanese superiority). Looks pretty balanced. However, I don't like the secondary objective idea. Doesn't fit with the main jist of multiplayer. It would be fun, however. I like it that its pretty balanced. Nice. Plus, I would like to see a video if its not too hard.

Re: Strike On Tulagi, Multiplayer version

(Sorry this reply is late)

Well, the idea of the secondary objectives was that I wanted to have something a little different with this map... you know, so that it was not "just another map idea."

  • 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
