Map Pack Three

Map Pack Three

With our newfound ability to make units, perhaps it is about time that we start tossing ideas around for Map pack three (and if it isn't time, we can discuss it here when the time comes).  Now many of you, as soon as you read this, will probably start thinking of new ideas.  Now just wait a minute... before we even start thinking of new ideas, why don't we dig through the forum and use our ideas that have been sitting around.

Here's what I think should be considered:

M0n3y's ideas:

Battle for Marshall Islands:

beast09's ideas:

Invasion of the Aleutians:

http://battlestations.eu/index.php/en/f … pic?id=113

dabomb32's ideas:

Battle of New Georgia:

http://battlestations.eu/index.php/en/f … pic?id=181

Triviaman's Ideas:

Battle of Savo Island:

http://battlestations.eu/index.php/en/f … pic?id=582

Strike on Tulagi, multiplayer version:

Seizing the Atoll:

That's it for now; let me know if we should start discussing now or later (if it is later then this thread will be ready for when the time comes)

Re: Map Pack Three

There was also something that Katarya and Tipsy inspired, an alternate history universe where Germany and Japan had conquered almost the entire Eastern Hemisphere. So, if we have German units, we could make a series off of that if people were fine with it. My first idea was a Japanese carrier force attacking a heavily defended German convoy containing uranium.

Re: Map Pack Three

What about the Battle of Leyte Gulf where a bunch of Escort Carriers like the Gambier Bay get sunk by a much larger Japanese force, i think Yamato in that fleet, on their way to attack the US invasion of Leyte.

Re: Map Pack Three

Hey regardless of what maps are going to be made, can map makers (creators specify the actual units, like how Triviaman does it). Actual units for the battles can be made now. We now have some momentum to coordinate these things. Might as well do it now.

Re: Map Pack Three

Actually Swarthy, what you were saying about specifying, that might be hard for some maps, because I haven't seen dabomb32 around here in a while (for example)

Also, the battle you are thinking of, the Battle off Samar, unfortunately there is already a map of that there (Albiet highly inaccurate).  So if you want, we can try and develop a historically accurate single player version

Re: Map Pack Three

I know that The multiplayer map Battle Of Samar is supposed to be the battle mentioned above but does that necessarily stop us from recreating it in multiplayer, we can call it a different name. "Battle of Taffy 3" or something or "Battle of Leyter Gulf" or "Task Force 77". I would really like that map, since that was my main motivation to make The Casablanca Class escort carrier.

It would be a great historical recreation, it would be great to play the US side, where courage and skill can equalize a much larger force of IJN ships. But moslty a tribute to the men who faced overwhelming odds. And where airpower can prove its worth. So i think what may seem like a lopsided  map may actually be even.

So there should be maps that are historically accurate with units because courage, skill and experience can make the underdog victorious. As the case of the men of Taffy 3. So please lets make this map, this honors the men who died during the battle.

Re: Map Pack Three

He didn't say that beast.  Personally, I want your Aleutians map made.  The real problem is getting someone to make it.

Re: Map Pack Three

Oh, I wasn't basing the assumption off of what Swarthy said, I was basing it off of the lack of replies :p It was a bad assumption on my part, I admit.

I also wish that someone made the Invasion of the Aleutians map, I was rather fond of it.

EDIT:

By the way, I was looking over the Aleutians map, and I have one comment to say about it. My grammar and overall English were TERRIBLE, I don't know if it was because I was always using an IpodTouch or if I was just that bad, but it is still awful. ae

Re: Map Pack Three

Lets petition the map makers to make these maps for us. Maybe a forum petition must be started. Hey Triviaman, thats an even better title, and Beast i second your Aleutian Island map.

Beast was your Aleutian map envisioned to be in the winter, I think theres a growing desire for a cold weather map. The invasion was in the winter wasnt it?

Re: Map Pack Three

Well first of all, we need to find out WHO the map makers are.

To my knowledge, the people on this site who have the ability to make maps are:

Katarya (He did Ironbottom Sound)
Tipsy3000 (He did Operation Ten-Go)
velcor (He did multiplayer Raid on Truk)
gaming-for-dummies (He did Indian Ocean Raid)
KS Nemoc ((He did Super Steel Monsters, but I haven't seen him around)

Basically, at most we can have 5 maps being worked on at once

Oh, and if I left anyone/anything out of that list, please inform me and I will update it ASAP

It really doesn't matter. It was meant to be part of an alternate history series that I was going to design so it could have been in the summer, which wasn't THAT cold.

  • 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
  • Runsva : mpak*
