Since december 2012 Battlestations: Midway is supported by GameSpy no longer. The only one possibility for Midway players is GameRanger. Please visit www.gameranger.com, download Gameranger client and make new account. You can find other Midway players in the Gameranger rooms. BS:M patch 1.1.1 is required to play online battles. Iowa Mission Pack and Midway Modders Mappacks 1 and 2 are recommended.

Bagley Class Destroyer

Bagley Class Destroyer

This is a Unit request.  With the ability to create new units, I would like one particular unit to be created for my Battle of Savo Island map idea: The Bagley class destroyer.  It is smaller and less powerful compared to Fletcher and Fubuki, and I figure that because of this fact it might be able to allow me to keep a couple of the American Destoryers I was asked to cut (As per suggestion by Katarya).  With that in mind, I would appreciate it if this unit is considered.  And if you want to see the Battle of Savo Island map, the concept is dicussed in the Battle of Savo island Thread and my youtube video proposing the map is also up.

I found this webpage with a great reference site... its about 1/8 down the webpage

Re: Bagley Class Destroyer

Looks great Swarthy.

Considering that this class will certainly be underpowered compared to Fubuki, I should consider readding 2 of the 4 DDs Katarya suggested I remove a while back for Savo Island

Re: Bagley Class Destroyer

Triviaman theres three classes of US destroyers mentioned in your map. I think the historical unit account should be played out and although the US side lost that round its a great opportunity to replay the scenario and see what an alternate outcome can be.

I think historically accurate maps with historically accurate units should be considered since it is skill, tactics and tenacity that will determine battles. Plus the fact that
we can recreate history so to speak.

We willl get to these units eventually, and the great thing about historical maps is that we dont need to design them, they are already well documented. BUT reliving them and proving that it was often leadership that wins battles not units, unless its one dd against a bb. But even so the dd can still survive if it wishes not to engage. So theres always an option.

Re: Bagley Class Destroyer

Now that you mention it Swarthy, I did have 3 US Destroyer classes mentioned:

Bagley, Porter and Benham.

Thing is though, there is only one Porter and two Benhams mentioned, and the Benham is VERY similar to Bagley.

In short, it is possible that we only NEED Bagley for Savo Island.  Besides, won't more units = a slight increase in file size for map pack three download?

Re: Bagley Class Destroyer

I dont know what having more units do for download sizes. But I agree that  certain units can be used for substitution for other units.

Re: Bagley Class Destroyer

Looking good Swarthy.

Real Bagleys were 341 ft 8 in, (Translates to 104.14 meters), so when finished they should be a little longer than John C. Bulter, a little over half as long as Oyodo or about 2/3 as long as Casablanca

  • 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.
