Re: Next DLC?

Guys, just a quick reminder before this gets derailed and ugly: Let's keep this a friendly discussion among international friends who share a harmless fun hobby. Discussing history is fine, being impolite not. (Of course, nobody is impolite around here. We are all friends.)

Re: Next DLC?

@uzbek2012: Looks like that old Budapest map from Panzer General, right? Memories. @all, devs: With the Panzercorps 2 beta rolling out, OoB will have to show signs of life, too. Hopefully soon. Any news? (I know, I shouldnt complain since I couldnt put in a single hour of OoB over the last few month...

Re: Does simulating history matter in OOB?

I wrote only what would have to be done to make OoB consistent with realities and above all more logical, but I don't have great illusions that such changes will be introduced. For me, the game doesn't matter, because I modify it for myself I think everyone noticed that I stopped submitting my prop...

Re: Quicksand!

Given what Gabe said, I am now envisioning those three in the quicksand as Field Marshal Rommel and two high-ranking aides: "Sich beeilen, verdammt deine Augen!" That doesnt work. 'Hurry up, damn your eyes' (right?) does not have a corresponding idiomatic phrase in German google translate can neatl...

Whoa, that stuff looks like it was distributed via shareware and floppy discs. Nice. How do you actually run this on a modern machine?

I can't reproduce it either. Reloading this turn-save also won't let them sink in anymore. :(
Thanks for sharing that anyway, Horst. Rather funny. "Herr Leutnant, wirf uns ein Seil!" :)
Nice German. So the yanks do learn things in school. :D

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Second offensive, 3.8, 12 turns in and I am wondering if this is bugged. Last playthrough I remember here (and in the original), you fall back towards El Agheila, try to save as many aux units as you can, then get resupplied and counterpush. This time however, I instantly lose my air supply near El...

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Finished Dash to the Wire, 16 turns. I think I played this by the book and held all objectives, destroyed the three supply dumps with a swift counterattack - but the mission would not end. Instead, the British werent fazed by the obliteration of their supply and mounted an even more powerful offensi...

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Dash to the wire 3.8: Just took a quick look and did some deployment. The jump in Italian core numbers is massive and I feel that you can make a lot of mistakes buying the wrong equipment. And it does add massive amounts of rather fresh and anonymous units to your roster, which dilutes your core ar...

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Operation Battleaxe 3.8, 18 turns, draw. No losses. This is better than the last version, but you still have to play this impeccably and get your force composition just right to come out on top. Air power is fine, I start with fighters and a Stuka in the rear airfield and add a second one to take ou...

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Operation Brevity 3.6 - havent finished yet, but saving all aux units seems quite impossible to me. The italian AT starts already surrounded and has no transport. On a side note, the SAS LRDG trucks are pretty powerful and should be nerfed a bit. Will post more later. I just saw your update to 3.7....

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Raas al Mdauar 3.6 - Was a favorite in Panzercorps and is one here. Minor issue: End trigger puts you on minor victory when you seize 6 objectives before taking out all tanks. Also, the trigger says "Seize all 6 objectives", but you can obviously finish without taking the last one in the northeast. ...

Re: Afrika Korps beta test

Aufklaerung 3.6 - I enjoyed this one and your changes make sense. I had a lot of CP undeployed since I went for an 'expensive units' core (Bersaglieri, three Wehrmacht tanks, Nebelwerfer, heavy arty etc). Also, the triggers work now and Tobruk cannot be taken. (At least by me.) I couldnt get the las...

Re: Revisiting Order of Battle

I bought OOB when it was first released. I played the Pacific campaigns to death. Loved everything about the game. Played the first 2 German campaigns, and then I got hooked on Hearts of Iron 4. Hadn't played any OOB since I purchased that game back, I guess it'll be 2 years in June? I think it's b...

Re: Is E-100 spesialization still bugged?

I think this is a f*cking joke. The game was released 13 NOV 2018, and this was one of the advertised units. Now almost 4 months later, the E-100 is still not in the game. I demand some sort of hotfix patch, so we can play with this tank. Now that Gabe has provided you with a fix I think you owe hi...
