Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

My first impression of the random maps is a flashback to Empire and Empire Deluxe. Fascinating flexibility in your design philosophy.

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #3

I am hesitant to reply to the 3D model size issue as I don't like joggling a developers elbow and try to tell him how to do his work. Let me frame this from a practical viewpoint. I was trained for maneuver warfare. The first principle is terrain, terrain, terrain. Only with a firm grasp of the terr...

Re: AI improvement

Please consider order of operations where artillery is concerned. When AI is attacking or counter-attacking, current AI frequently has the artillery firing after the attack. Such a change may involve multiple passes through the available AI units, but could yield large dividends in AI lethality.

PC Gold and Soft Cap

Does PC Gold include a fixed soft cap formula so that the intended value of 800 can be used or should we continue to use the value that works (1250) to achieve the effective 800 soft cap?

Re: Soft Cap Fix

Modify the gamerules files, MaxPrestige entry. Default is 800. Change this to 1250.

There are several gamerules files. The core game has one. Then nearly all the DLCs have their own gamerules.

Re: Panzer Corps 2

In no particular order. Improved AI. Use artillery to soften targets in support of another unit, rather than fire after an attack has gone in. Use units to maximize value of their own zones of control. Avoid throwing armor into close terrain, when possible. Leader bonuses that align better with the ...

Re: '39-'45 GC DLC Soft Cap Question.

Softcap remains broken. Current value of 800 doesn't work as intended. Someone on these forums did their own research and found that changing the 800 value to 1250 achieved what the PC programmers wanted, of capping exp when the average unit value reaches 800. Setting to 1250 is a fair challenge and...

Re: AT defensive fire

A useful suggestion and I would like to be able to test this out. There is already a balance factor built into scenarios and that is the deployable unit count. In many scenarios controlling the frontage using zoc is vital to reducing casualties and in a few cases survival of the core force. Each AT ...

Re: If the German’s had won at the Bulge,,,,,,

If the forces had been directed East, the best they could have hoped to accomplish was delaying the Russians. If for example, the '44 attempt to kill Hitler had succeeded AND the generals (not Jodl and Keitel, but the fighting generals) had emerged on top over the SS, then such an attempt to delay t...

Re: If the German’s had won at the Bulge,,,,,,

If you change your premise the answer is pretty clear. What were the Germans thinking? The senior officers in the west were cut out of the planning by Hitler. So what was Hitler thinking? Hitler, living in his little delusional world, was hoping to recapture the success of 1940. During his planning ...

American campaign, Philippines 1941. Bug? I was seeing Japanese tank units move up, then receive reinforcements (same turn). Seemed odd.
