Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

They aren't, I checked. Aircraft in PzC were just as bad if not worse to visually identify in PzC than Pzc2. https://i.imgur.com/Xqs8xW5.jpg The only way this is more discernible is maybe because people have been looking at them for the past 10 years, so there is a familiarity about it. But objecti...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

Where as in PzC2 those units run behind supporting units, allowing the supporting units to get blasted by infantry and tank, then still get destroyed by over-run doing alot less damage to the enemy in the process...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

Always nice to see a PzC beta veteran, even when he does not have a single positive thing to say about the new game. At least, I hope that this time around you won't feel that Kursk map is too small. :) Hello! Yes I've been away from the forums for a long time - much less opportunity to chat as a s...

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

At Kursk at the moment and rapidly losing interest in the game. If you thought PG2 was better than the original you'll find that the change from PzC to PzC2 is fairly similar. To me the improvements have been more than counterbalanced by the gimmicky nature of the changes. Visuals - the game looks n...

Re: Annoying Screen Travel _From Poor Button Locations

I don't know about too close to the edge - but I would agree they seem unnecessarily spread out over the whole screen. At Sedan now, overall not sure about how I feel about the changes to game play but IMO they tried to do too much to the UI, tried to make it show too much info, and in the process m...

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

I no longer have a desk job so I can't afford to spend hours involved in forum discussion like I did the first time around. I made a bunch of suggestions during PzC Beta and later (feel free to search my post history if you care) including "Reform Units": which was eventually adapted. I won't write ...

Re: Panzer Korps Grand campaign play order

Not sure if Steam lets you edit the game files but I've combined east and west campaigns into a single campaign file and use a slightly larger core to do both simultaneously - one corps on the east, the other on the west, HQ reserves transferring between fronts as necessary, and occasionally reinfor...

Re: 1939-1945 GC Mega Pack balance?

More precisely has the RP points gain been tailored to the new structure of the campaign (100+ linked scenarios)? I would want to avoid the situation where Iam literary swimming in requisition halfway through the game. I was planning on playing on the default (challenging) difficulty. The short ans...

Re: Rate your PG and PzC games

My entire review can be summed up as 1 step forward, 1 or more steps back. PG had a huge impact on the computer wargaming scene because it was able to pack a surprising amount of historical *flavour* (as opposed to realism) into a slick and easy to learn interface and add a healthy dose of RPG on th...

Re: AT

Edit the equipment file to make the 8.8cm Flak anti tank mode purchase-able. Use the "Core" cheat in scenarios like Arras to add a core slot so you can deploy you flak/AT and use it in place of the auxiliary 8.8cm. When you're ready to upgrade you just have to leave it in AT mode at the end of a sce...

Re: '45 East: Offensive or Defensive?

IMO the first offensive scenario, and the last defensive scenario are the most interesting.

Re: How many core units can be deployed at max? Which Scenar

I would assume the developers felt a) smaller scenarios are easier to design and test than larger ones and b) there was a sweet spot in scenario size that would appeal to the average casual gamer and the occasional maximum effort scenario like Prokhorovka was thrown in as a means of providing variety.

Re: How many core units can be deployed at max? Which Scenar

45 in Berlin, 50 in Berlin Redux - not including SE units.

Most scenarios in 44/45 deploy significantly less.

Re: newbie: please explain parachutists deployment

When you deploy your forces at the start of the scenario hover over the embark/disembark button - it will tell you how many free transports you have. IF you have available transport, selecting a parachute infantry WITHOUT attached truck/halftrack will bring up air deployment hexes. Click on an empty...

Re: Allied Corps way to easy?

The solution for how to design a proper Soviet campaign, forcing the player to use massive amounts of inferior units, is actually quite simple. Small CORE, lots of AUX units. I would disagree - the CORE force is what makes the PG series of games enjoyable. The real problem with trying to shoe horn ...

Re: Very upset.

P.S. In case anyone draws the wrong conclusion, I love Panzer Corps, it is a huge improvement on PG and finally replaced it as my absolute favorite game. I think Alex did an amazing job. But I don't think he achieved perfection. And my biggest disappointment is that the game is stagnated as they see...

Re: Very upset.

Given my prior knowledge of the complete SSI series, given the lead programmers stated stance (read the mod comment), it is you that misses the point. PC is a direct successor to PG, with minor improvements and tweaks yet vastly improved content. And the ability to blitz through all of the scenario...

Back to the OP [For whom was the] 'snowball' effect was a problem and they had to stop playing the game because of it? Muddy. I think Muddy would qualify as a casual player.
