Re: How about a naval war mod for Sengoku Jidai like Lepanto in P&K?

Naval warfare for Sengoku would be really good.
Maybe make a naval DLC. We will all buy it for sure.

Re: Pike&Shot vs Sengoku together?

Maybe this game could be added to the new Field of Glory Empires game so that when you have a battle in the area of China, Japan and Korea, you fight the battle using Sengoku game.

Have you played all the factions and campaigns? There is a lot of content in this game.

Re: Why do units have separate attack and defense values?

I think it is better with seperate attack & defense stats. Some units are good at one or the other like an unarmored Celtic warrior with a 2-handed sword is dangerous attacking and a large, soft target on defense. It seems every unit is better at one or the other like heavy infantry with a big shie...

Re: Battle of Caen - Anglo-German Battle of Normandy (Help and test player needed)

ShermanVC that is fantastic. We need Caen! Nice pictures and battle briefing sounds realistic and fun. Don't worry about the unit limit. It is annoying, but you can make the game more focused on smaller combat and still make a realistic Caen battle. I like having SS units and the traditional German ...

Re: Why No Pacific Campaign?

If you want a Pacific War game, you can try Sudden Strike 4 which has a very good pacific war dlc.
Another new game with mostly naval combat is Strategic Mind: The Pacific

Re: People's General, Space General etc

braccada, did you play Age of Wonders III? I remember People's General there were random locations used in each battle and there was even Stalingrad. There were a lot of early Warsaw Pact units and helicopters that attacked viciously in the beginning so I always hunkered down and awaited the storm e...

Re: Monstrous McAuliffe at Bastogne

You actually did set up battlegroups all around Bastogne. I only had units in northwest, west and south. It seems you have more ground units and I have more airplanes. I can't adjust it either cause I put down all my land units even weak garbage units like a KV-2 gift from Russia and a Panther that ...

Re: Monstrous McAuliffe at Bastogne

Buffalo, did you get a full victory or marginal? I think the difference is huge on this mission. Were you able to clear the central urban district? The last objective in the east... did you clear that last? I think you didn't deploy in the area so you must have fought your way west to east through t...

Buffalohump, I've been playing the Bastogne scenario and been losing everytime. I was able to bomb the evil McAuliffe brute out of the game before he eliminated my units, but I have a new problem now. When my troops approach the central urban mass of the town, my infantry units are savagely attacked...

Re: Fighter Escort

An easy duct tape style fix for this problem is to give the player many more command points for air so both fighters & bombers can coexist in a meaningful way.
If that doesn't fix the problem, that means you haven't added on enough duct tape.... I mean command points.

Re: Monstrous McAuliffe at Bastogne

Thanks for help in this thread. The Bastogne mission is reasonable now. I'm doing two attacks: one in the south and one in the west so I have more attack power instead of 6 weak attacks. The monster TD is being bombed down to a normal TD thanks to knowing where it is. Maybe this is a bit unfair to k...

Re: Heroes?

I remember Panzer General 2. There was a Liberator leader that gives you more prestige when you takeover towns. And a tank leader that gives another attack.... maybe after you destroy a unit I think make called Blitz. Can we still play PG2? Does it work on modern computers? Where can we get it? Did ...

Re: How to use 8.8cm FlaK 36 to best effect?

Buffalo, I will try using a towed 88 next time. I have to resist my tendency to go all tanks (about 6 actually not many cause I use a lot of infantry and aircraft) and infantry with a few arty and maybe have more AT and arty with less tanks instead. The latewar in the East seems like the same thing ...

Re: Monstrous McAuliffe at Bastogne

Buffalo that sounds like good strategy. If Patton gets his horde into the town it would make it too hard I think. I will go with the south then. As for luring Big Mac into rough terrain, my problem was that he appeared out of the fog of war along with Patton's horde and instantly wiped out a unit of...

Re: How to use 8.8cm FlaK 36 to best effect?

I read a lot about hapless German soldiers in latewar WW2 and I felt sorry for them trying to survive the terrible Red storm grinding them down with massive artillery barrages and massed armor & infantry attacks, so I wish they had had more armored support. The infantry often relied on small numbers...

Re: How to use 8.8cm FlaK 36 to best effect?

I tried to train a new 88 in 43 and it was a disaster as you said. What I did in an earlier game is use a couple of Marders in early war to get XP and then transformed them into a latewar AT usually Jagdpanthers which I like a lot. I wish Germany had made lots of Jagdpanthers instead of costly proje...

Re: How to use 8.8cm FlaK 36 to best effect?

Well there's no magic, you use it very carefully. The thing is, the 88 is far, far better than any AT the Germans have, at least until 1942 when the Stug 3 series comes out. Even after that, it still has advantages- tank destroyers have virtually no soft attack and so basically can't fight back aga...
