Imperial Japanese Submarine Aircraft Carriers IMPLEMENTED

Post by DoomsdayDragonfire » Mon Feb 04, 2019 12:51 am

I was reading about some peculiar ships that Imperial Japanese navy had, the I-13-class submarine and I-400-class submarine, actuall submarine aircraft carriers, that could carry up to 2 "Aichi M6A Seiran" floatplanes for I-13 and 3 for I-400... Designed to pass enemy lines without any warning and deploy planes behind enemy lines to attack the coastal cities and imput fear on the enemies... And was wondering, how fun would be to have it in the game, having a mechanic of summon a 3 turn cooldown plane to simulate the fact that those pilots had to mostly ditch the plane nearby the submarine since it was quite hard to land the plane on water under combat, so they only had to pick back the pilots on the water to make another sortie.

Looks cool, but will be better if its image had the same perspective of the other planes.
Maybe picking one that already exist and add another camoflage and change the details.

About the ship... This is the I400.

We should think if we start with the small ones or jump to I-400, here you can see their different sizes...

And here you can learn more about it and other variant subs.

The image I posted was a first draft. To make them I pixelate a existing image then edit accordingly. The Image you posted is perfect for this as I found that photos of scale models are the best for this process.

Yep, they help a lot, these guys who create models are really doing a service for us xD... Btw, the plane is here, we just need the sub...

Then, we can work on stats and later the jsons for both.
I personally think that adding this on the same way as M6A-K but with 3 turns vanishing would be nice, it will simulate perfectly the carry amount of the I-400 plane capacity :lol: , but i'm not sure if we should add the kamikazi attack aswell to these planes... Perhaps a bombing attack like the p-54 instead?

Idk if i let the metal deck, i see some of them with wooden like decks aswell, also need to finish many parts of the hull, and maybe add the red watermark to it, but the outline for it is ok i guess, at least you can see that it is an I-400... Details like water waves being cutted by the hull i'm not sure if i can do, perhaps translucid white for water waves?

I know of a way to make pixels transparent in Gimp. But nice picture.
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

Just a thought . The game has yet to have a Japanese Imperial Navy. This sub should be a upgrade unit. Perhaps we should do something about a JIP first. I have been working on some from images from the forum. I am trying to make them look Japanese .

I can't make the jsons but thx, but we still need to figure out stats for it, also i need to make a submerged version for it aswell...

Made those changes and attempted to give it waves, but i still can't make waves look good.
