Re: Bug Reports

No technically a bug, but would it be possible to add something to the name of a save beyond scenario and current round? In PC1 you could play through campaigns or any scenario multiple times and not run into any trouble with the game asking you if you wanted to overwrite an earlier file that happen...

Re: Hero abilities tier list

Information only takes you so far. Rommel succeeded because he was a daring commander, to the point were he was overly aggressive in his actions. This was already the case in WW1, and not different in the early goings of WW2. He fully understand how surprise and psychological effects could make an e...

Re: Hero abilities tier list

I found Oleh Dir on a Grenadier paired with the Hit and Run hero to be a pretty nice combination. The Grenadier-unit already has the highest initiative among infantry units (at least early on, haven't checked all the stats), Oleh Dir adds further initiative, putting the unit ahead of any infantry yo...

Re: Commendation Points (CP)

BTW - this highlights what I see as one of the few FUNDAMENTAL problems with PC2. I don't see any point (other than flavor) to captured equipment. Experience (and the new medals) are simply too valuable to be bothered with a unit that you won't be able to keep repaired. IRL, captured equipment was ...

Re: Kommandant K

I think the consensus is somewhat wrong about that stuff though. I used to think they were really good, then I looked past armor and gun. Those tanks looked good on paper, but sadly paper doesn't fight, tank-crews in their tanks do. The reasons the Germans succeeded even with tanks that were weaker ...

Re: AO 1939 scn tree is a disaster

No, but i do think that it shows that in magnitude, the Saar offensive was just a sideshow compared to the fighting in Poland. I think Kondi's point is, he wants to play the big battles. He wants to fight where the biggest action is. Breaking through Polish lines, fighting tooth and nail to get thr...

Re: Losing the entire game due to missing by one or two turns is garbage.

My 2 pfennigs on this: using "defeat the enemy in X turns" as the measure of victory always struck me as lazy game-design. It makes it, rather than being a game in which winning means defeating the enemy , a game where enemy units are just so many speed-bumps or hurdles that you have to clear quick...

Re: Panzer Corps 2: Axis Operations - 1939 || Dev Diary # 1

ok I know i'm paranoid, but even in the editor there is no finnish infantry unit ... I hope it is added with the 1939 dlc. One or more scenarios of the winter war only with german units would be unacceptable! Well of course the editor doesn't have those units, it uses the same files as the game aft...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Axis Operations DLCs announced

We all appreciate your work. Seriously though, nobody who plays WWII games wants to fight in spain. Maybe one scenario like Panzer General 2 type thing but not a campaign. Who wants to fight with crap geared spanish nationalists. As far as the next release, never was a shot fired when the germans w...

Re: Should Panthers be cheaper?

However, both of these tanks were extremely failure-prone, which should also be taken into account when setting their ratios compared to other tanks I think that is a bit too harsh. Neither were particularly failure-prone when running normally. They had their issues early on, which is completely no...

Re: Weekly Unit Discussion Thread

These aircraft are made for people who's height is between 5 feet and 5+1/2 feet [Max]. Roughly... slightly taller than a meter and a half. Napoleon Bonaparte would have fit quite well in something like this. Napoleon wasn't small though, that's a myth. He merely looked small because his Guard only...

Re: Weekly Unit Discussion Thread

Love the Marder series as well, especially the I (which is in-game as the Panzerjager 35R). The open-topped TD's aren't actually that bad, as AT is generally best used as a second-line support, though I must admit the Stug line's ability to fill gaps in the frontline is very useful. I don't think t...

Re: Ideas for Panzer Corps 2

I wonder if it might be possible to be able to play as part of a specific army group in the east, on a year-by-year basis, at some point in the future. Sort of a different approach to the Grand Campaign. E.g. if you choose to be part of Army Group North, you take part on the drive through the Baltic...

Re: AA - German 8.8 strength

I've changed the Air Attack values of all AAA in the units file - added 12 as a modifier to all. Much better. 3 concentrated 2x rapid fire AAA units can now fully suppress incoming tac and in general AAA scores more casualties. Game plays better, though I'm going to experiment a bit more with that ...

Re: Battlefield: Europe MOD v2.0

Currently, if you are able to capture and hold one UK victory objective (as the Axis player), D-Day will be stopped / deferred, i.e. it means your opponent doesn't get any (additional) US resources to land anywhere (neither on the British Isles nor on mainland Europe) from this point in time.

Re: What do Panzer Corps veterans feel about PzC2?

That kind of makes the point doesn't it? :D If you have to take time to "count road wheels" to tell what a unit is, that is time you are not playing the game. I think we all acknowledge there are work-arounds, etc., but you shouldn't HAVE to. It is a distractor. It detracts from immersion. I must t...

boredatworks screenshots show exactly what my problem is. I know, I have played PC1 much more than PC2, but in the PC1 screenshot I can immediately tell what every unit is. In the PC2 screenshot: - the german and russian infantry could be everything. I have no clue if they are paras, engineers or w...

Re: The Panzer IIIN

I believe some of Rommels PzIII's may still have had the 37mm guns as there were still some in use at this stage but would have mostly if not entirely been upgunned to 50mm sooner rather than later. Not 100% sure about the very first tanks that arrived, but by summer 1941 at the latest all Panzer I...
