Re: Problem, please help: Can't chose/play installed Mods/User created Campaigns

I am trying to play user created mods installed (MAC). The Apple versions Mac/Ipad do not handle most mods. If you are playing on a Mac and are a 'hacker' there are ways to use the mods. Some are even legal! I use Wineskin, it doesn't work on Mohave yet [32 bit], but there are other versions on Win...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #4

Prestige is this game’s currency, and, as its name implies, it is awarded for your successes on the battlefield. In Panzer Corps, there were certain exceptions from this rule, like Minor victory giving more prestige than Major, and this created a lot of confusion. In Panzer Corps 2 we will avoid an...

Re: Future dev diaries

A dev diary on 3D unreal engine modeling would be good idea. Scenario designers should be able to use the scenario editor right out of the box. But the tool kit to create new units for PzC2 is different from for PzC. Giving the community a heads up on what is involved and/or required in the process ...

Re: Future dev diaries

I would like to see a dev diary on AI. Particularly what PzC AI does [or doesn’t do], and how PzC2 AI is better. Issues like: Attacker Mode => Suicide Mode Tanks, infantry, halftracks w/ infantry, will all attack aggressively. Trucks w/ Infantry, artillery w/o ammo will move as aggressively as tanks...

Re: 2 New Difficulty Levels for Grand Campaign

Von Rundstedt Mode using Nico's Buy Your Own Army mod is very doable for any player. You play the first scenario on one level, get prestige to buy units. On the next scenario [Pozen], you adjust your difficulty level. Starting prestige for each difficultly level: Rommel 1825 Colonel 3650 Lieutenant ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #2

I would like to add some observations to the debate here. 1) Not every poster/reader is a native English speaker. 2) Not every poster is an engineer [software or otherwise] 3) proline is not a troll, he is a player with real complaints about PzC development. 4) Giving solutions to problems is more l...

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gameplay

This sounds like a good option for scenario designer (more generally - make any unit pre-spotted), but probably not a good game option which players will see in game's UI. Exactly, a scenario designer option, for D Day the Allies would know most Axis positions, but in British India Axis might not k...

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gameplay

Of course, building a fort or bunker takes time, but are you saying that in WW2 100% of forts were known to the enemy in advance, and they never ran into nasty surprises? 'Fortification' and 'Airfield' are terrain and are all pre-spotted at the start of a scenario, forts are units and not pre-spott...

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gameplay

I think there should be an 'advance recon' feature for forts.

Forts are not built in a day and don't move.
Like airfields the player and AI should known where that are at the start of the scenario. Not stats but a symbol of some sort that shows that there is a bunch of concrete there.

AI improvement

I am starting this topic for people to list possible improvements to the AI. Suggestions should be simple. My suggestion is memory. For example in AC the Medenine scenario there is a back route to flank the Axis. There is a recon placed by the exit of this back route. When your recon spots the Axis ...

This is great stuff...I wish it was clearer...and is this the unit composition that you used for this map? Heavy up North. If you need to sit and wait until they beat their head against your defensive wall, how long is that, in other words when do I need to start moving forward to taking the Victor...

Re: New Difficulty Level for Grand Campaign

Being defensive in Arras has worked for me. In the middle clear out the allied units you find, do not approach the center objective. Place infantry in terrain. In the south clear out the allied units and take the first objective, set up a defensive line using the terrain. In the north place infantry...

Re: What content would you like to see in PzC 2?

I would like to see alternative GCs, especially '42.

Stalingrad was not an objective in Case Blue [the summer 42 offensive].
The oil fields were.
This is left out of GC42.

Re: hard coded overstrength capturables query

1) technically how is this done - just editing the equipment file? and The number is set in the Scenario Editor Screen Shot 2018-07-16 at 9.56.20 AM.jpg I Believe this gives the unit a base strength of 12. The rest just follows. This gives the designers discretion to give the AI selectively stronge...

Re: Otto Kittel and Walter Nowatny

There is an old post on this site where a player had his air force wiped out in 43 or 44.
He bought AA and soldered on.
Which tracks TSPC37730.
For Double Rommel AA may be the way to go.

Re: GC DLCs upgrade project (GC Complete v3)

Nico

While thinking about redoing Allied Corps, I noticed that the UK M3 an M5 do not have reconmove as the US ones do.

I don't think the Lee/Grant should have reconmove though, unless you give it the Matilda's as well. :D
