Re: Exaggerated AI reinforcements

No, it was Harkov'42. And I also remember something similar in Vitebsk scenario. It was clearly not scripted, the Soviet AI likes to buy KV tanks the same as Poland buys tankettes in 1939 DLC. Maybe it's because difficulty has 150% AI prestige, but it doesn't feel right anyway.

Re: Exaggerated AI reinforcements

This has nothing to do with the outcome of previous battles. Also it has nothing to do with supply lines, since the game does not abstracticize them. The units can pop-up out of thin air behind your lines if you bypass a insignificant town. Also, I had no problems if the AI would purchase a balance ...

Exaggerated AI reinforcements

Playing DLC, you have probably noticed that towards the end of a scenario, in an enemy held town, the AI will start buying units, usually spamming the most expensive unit it can buy. Playing GC42 East, I have just witnessed the AI buying 5 (FIVE!) KV-1 tanks around a town. Fortunately I was able to ...

Re: Why "3D" Graphics Will Never be Good for PzC

To simulate the classic 2D isometric mode the developer could lock the camera tilt and rotation at a fixed angle and the unit models to display only from a side (facing left or right). A simple in-game option could do this.

Re: Antitank units defence bonus in rough terrain ?

You should not bother to learn all the modifiers, in time you will have enough experience to know when to make an attack or not. The predicted losses is a good indicator, but the most important thing to know is: when the defending unit can fire back (it is not fully suppressed, cannot attack air, et...

Re: Which First?

When you are going to attack a target with both air and artillery, which one is usually better to use first? Thanks for any opinions. As usual, it depends :D If the target has 0 entrenchment level, it should not matter, but then again it depends on target's strength and your air/artillery unit's st...

Re: Spoils of War

I think it depends on difficulty level and your own imposed rules. As I play with Rommel settings and using deducter's equipment mod, I think playing Spoils of War would be too costly to go for a no-reload decisive victory. The benefit in earned prestige would be lower than the cost of repairing uni...

Re: Oleh Dir.

I find the scenario designers went over the top with these special heroes, such as Oleh Dir or Albert Kerscher. I'm using the scenario editor to edit their stats before reaching the scenarios during campaign, so as in 1939 the cumulative bonus points of heroes is not greater than 3, in 1940 no great...

Re: OT: just watched Dunkirk by Christopher Nolan

I have expected an epic movie, but end up feeling like I have watched a low budget TV movie. The Germans are not shown at all (except aircraft), the strategic situation is barely described, no large amount of equipment shown on beach, no fighting except stray bullets and dogfights. Underwhelming I m...

Re: OT: just watched Dunkirk by Christopher Nolan

I think they have made mistakes in regards to Messerschmitts, the model looks like the Hispano type and not "Emil". Also the painting scheme with the all yellow engine cowling came a bit later.

Re: Thoughts on getting started with Panzer Corps

Some tips for besieging a strongly defended city. You need plenty of artillery and you have to neutralize the enemy units in this order of priority: suppress the AA so your air force can strike freely, then the enemy artillery, then the rest of the units. When you are approaching a strong artillery ...

Re: Soft Cap Fix

In the rule files in DLCs, only the specified settings override the ones from the master file. If a setting is not in the DLC rule file, then the one from the main game is used.

Re: Objectives vs Victory hexes?

There are some missions in DLC where the victory condition does not require occupying any location, yet there are some hexes marked with a gold border. Like Dunkirk where you only have to destroy transports to get DV. I guess they only offer more prestige when they are captured, or is there somethin...

HQ units idea

While modding PzC does not allow adding new unit classes or unit special traits, I think from a role-playing perspective creating HQ units under infantry class would make the game more interesting. These units should have the attributes of a regular infantry unit but with much weaker offensive value...
