Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

Thanks for your support of Panzer Corps and for taking time the to register on the forum in order to give your feedback. At this point, we are way beyond the point of no return with 3D. However, I want to make sure that the transition to 3D is as smooth as possible. Can you tell a bit more? What ex...

no not even close, you will have access to play randomly generated content but they will have scenario specific content
This seems to be a re-occurring question. I think a lot of the confusion comes from not having seen any non-randomly generated pieces of content.

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

Thank you. Sorry for bringing tis up. I was unaware of it. No problem. They were loud about announcing the 2018 release back last year, but much quieter about pushing it back. ;) Hopefully the game will be all the better for it. Does the gaming world need more rushed out, badly bugged, horribly rev...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

Looking forward to the Beta testing on these aspects of the game, mostly want to see balancing on mp, and how that plays out in mp I wouldn't expect to see MP arrive early in the BETA process, whenever the BETA process starts. Even if it was there, you wouldn't see any balancing on MP style content...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

Isn't launch set to happen soon (this year)? As 2018 is coming to an end, we are getting a lot of questions about the Panzer Corps 2 release date. Unfortunately, by now it has become clear that we won’t be able to release the game this year. This is something which some of you have already guessed,...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

Would like to make a (last minute?) request for a better management of buying / upgrading units. As I am trying more difficult levels cutting costs is becoming more and more essential. I have a battered 5 strength top Tiger unit which has perfect heros to be changed to a Panther A. But it turns out...

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: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

If only it were so easy. :) As a player, I actually do share your view that Panzer Corps is a game, and as such, its main focus must be on enjoyment and entertainment. But there is a very large, very vocal and very passionate group of people for whom realism is paramount. If I announced in the next...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

You've made yourself abundantly clear, and I have heard you. However...... A well written response from Rudankort, I don't think I could say anything more or better so I'll leave it at that. :mrgreen: However when he did whip out those achievement stats, he covered something that I actually overloo...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

"You can finish off weak units" is something you could say about any unit, viable or not. In truth there is nothing special about recon that allows them to finish weak units. Flamm tanks are good for finishing weak units- their high RoF is a special ability that makes them good at that. Recon's got...

Re: Panzer Corps Tournament 2018

The trigger is documented within the editor. So I agree with you, that maps with a trigger are a problem for multiplayer. You know about it or you do not. But if you know it, you cannot ignore it. Whenever something is triggered in a Panzer Corps map, this is done by a script and everything is visi...

I'm an ignorant observer with no context. Can someone explain the map and exploit in question? Thread is too big to try and navigate. :(

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

I do not think it is awesome at all. Many players' impression of recon is that they somehow fail at their essential function unless you expose them to huge risks they are not equipped to survive. Remember the core reason for Panzer General:y games success - the unrealistic ability to create hero un...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

Kerensky, it's entirely possible for recon to suck at both the beginner and advanced levels. Hell, they suck at all levels. They suck at advanced because they aren't financially efficient enough, and they suck at beginner because beginners can't keep them alive. I don't find this shocking. It's lik...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

There's nothing hyperbolic about it. Recon is irrelevant in PzC because the enemy always attacks from the same direction on the same turn with the same forces. And there's no way to play without preknowledge, because the game has a limited amount of single player content that can be easily exhauste...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

Let's try this a different way- have you taken any action to make recon less of a total waste of slots and money? I'm pretty sure they've said they have. Something about mass attack special benefits from adjacent recon cars. That said, calling them total wastes of slots and money is too much hyperb...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

As soon as I can see a clear benefit to gameplay from changed spotting rules, I will gladly consider it. What exactly do you suggest? If terrain like forests blocks LOS instantly, this means that no units, including recon, can see more than 1 hex into a big forest which your army is passing. I've a...

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...

1. Can random maps be saved and edited after created. For example, letting the generator pre built a multiplayer map might be nice to increase general design variety, but such randomly generated content will need inevitable fine tuning and tweaking to provide a proper balanced and potentially compet...
