Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

So my impression is that we will be creating our own scenarios on random maps? Is this correct? No. It means that you can create your own scenarios on random maps, not that you must. A point to remember, the Dev[elopers] are this providing this information for both general public and 'power' users....

Re: Editor not starting

I tried opening the editor yesterday. It displayed a blank map (with about 12 x 12 hex grid visible and no terrain) and a list of units to the side. It then paused for about 10 seconds and closed itself, leaving only the Panzer Corps start screen. The blank map is the default new map. It appears th...

Re: Editor not starting

Start with your equip file, if it is screwed up the editor may not work.
Place your original 'default' equip file the data folder to see if it then works.

Re: How has the A.I been improved ?

In PzC there are 3 AI levels. I assume that PzC2 will multiple AI levels as well.

Will there be a description the various levels?
How will these levels be beta tested. Will the users decide which levels will be tested?
Or will there be 'formal' testing of the various levels?

Re: Some questions about traits?

Hello, dalfrede. I have read all the traits but I have a doubt. Can you explain what backfire exactly does? Or is it only a gfx trait? Thanks in advance. A portee is a truck that carries a gun on its bed, such that the gun is not fixed permanently to the vehicle, can be quickly unloaded and can be ...

Re: Ideas for Panzer Corps 2

I would suggest a Dragoon/Grenadier trait. It allows dismount/switch with the expenditure of movement point[s]. Light AT and Art can deploy quickly from transport. Calvary and Motorcycles can quickly dismount. Heavy Art clearly would not have it. Other posters have requested that Grenadier have this...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

In our last internal discussion my vote was for leaving cavalry in infantry class, but moving motorcycles to recon. But Kresimir is not convinced. His preference is to keep the recon class more "uniform". Anything can happen before the release, we shall see. BTW, how do you imagine them being in tw...

Re: Some questions about traits?

So, if you wanted to edit equipment.pzdat completely you must use notepad or another program. Use a spreadsheet, such as Excel or OpenOffice Calc. Copy the equipment.pzdat file, rename the file equipment.pzdat.csv . Open equipment.pzdat.csv with your spreadsheet. Character set: Unicode , plain or U...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

I never use kradschutzen at all. Which was my point. It requires a mod, so few people use it. As soft target infantry a Krad would have survived the tank assault in your Spoils of War play through. And is tougher that cavalry, so as a Krad that unit could have survived. Of course allowing a Soviet ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

The Great Recon Debate Have any of you rounders played AK or USc? The Italian Sahariana with switchable infantry is very useful, and hits hard. Willys Jeep is the best recon in the game. Admittedly the attack and defense values are overly generous, which is why it is not purchasable. It eats 88s for...

They are in the game. Any time a German infantry or towed unit doesn't have a mechanized transport, it has a horse. That's Proline statement not mine.

Re: Prestige soft cap

Note that changes to Gamesrules files appear to take effect only at the start of a campaign, rather than at the start of a scenario (as equipment changes do). This can make it a bit harder to test out. Also, tweaking the ranges on Soft Cap can have some strange effects - I managed to get >100% pres...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

Will PzC2 have a line-of-sight system that land/naval units can't see what's behind terrain like settlements, forests, hills and mountains? We considered it and decided against it. All these mechanics simply force the player to spend more time and resources on routinely scouting the land and "combi...
