I guess this is the right place for this, since it's modding after all.
So, after StarSlayer posted this thread
, I thought I would share something I messed about with at the start of last month. You see, the Kancolle wiki has the voice clips, rough translations, and in-game art of all the kanmusu, so I thought, why not make wingmen personas out of them?
First mission I did to test this out - The Sixth Wonder
with the Fubuki-class destroyers as wingmen. Feint! Parry! Riposte!
, with some of the others I've done. Unfortunately I am a bad teitoku and many kanmusu died to bring you this.
On the plus side, though, you get some Burning Love and plenty of Poi near the end. The Fog of War
- not the Fleet of Fog that the kanmusu would be familiar with, though. I used the FreeSpace Blue version here, but since I didn't do it with BP active, I couldn't make use of the TAG system. Ah well, there's eleven different kanmusu in this one, at least. :p

I focused on destroyer kanmusu first, since of course they're the smallest and so make the most sense to put into fighters and bombers, with kanmusu of other classes being capships. But, considering that all kanmusu are essentially fun-sized warships anyway, and I can't really have capships use personas...
I don't think this will turn into some big mod, but I thought it would be amusing to share, and if anyone wants me to put up a download, let me know. Also, it doesn't take long for me to make a new persona, so if you want to request someone in particular, please do.
I also wouldn't mind seeing if it is possible to make a Lua script that automatically adds kanmusu personas into any mission (randomly; if wingmen don't have a persona assigned, FS2 will normally assign them in the order they occur in the messages.tbl), no FRED required.
