Re: Bf109z and He111z Implementation

The answer depends on what are we trying to achieve? My assumption is to keep PC2 an enjoyable, highly attractive history-based game about WWII events. That said, option #2 seems more realistic/fair to the player. In the real life, prototypes were deployed in limited quantities (i.e. Soviet's CMT, K...

Re: DLC 1941 East ideation

While this has some great ideas for the War in the East (and North), what about the Germans in North Africa and the invasions of Greece and Yugoslavia? We focused on the classical East campaign definition (with Panzer Corps 1 DLCs as guidance). While Greece and Yugo technically could be combined wi...

DLC 1941 East Front ideation

Fellow players, Inspired by the 'DLC 1940 Prediction Game' post, kondi754 and I compiled the list of DLC 1941 East ideas: battles, nemeses, and objectives. We'd like to start a discussion on what are the most interesting and least dull battles? What new objectives could spice up the gameplay experie...

Re: There is quite a big error in one of the 1940 DLC maps of the Netherlands

It's funny - the Dutch map shown a land that was reclaimed after the war; but to-be-made Soviet maps with Dnepr, Don and Volga rivers should show more land than you see in Google maps nowadays as all but one hydro plants were built after the war. On August 18, 1941, the NKVD (on Stalin's direct ord...

Re: Should I get Panzer Corps Gold with all DLCs or OOB?

The games are VERY different - watch Youtube walkthroughs to check which one you like more. I bought several OOB DLC but cannot 'get' the game - it feels and plays weird in comparison to PG

Re: DLC 1940 Prediction Forum Game

Well... I am impressed by Kerensky's openness, productivity and involvement of players.
I am NOT impressed by fellow players voting for low impact scenarios such as Channel islands OR fantasy such as 'New Nemesis' while disregarding massive engagements such as Winter War 1940. :oops:

Re: Demotorise Your Core: Idea for Your Next Playthrough

I envy people who have enough time to invent and inflict themselves new ways of suffering. From the history point of view, the strength of Wehrmacht were self-sufficient motorized divisions - tanks, arty and motorized infantry together. What needs adjustment is prestige system - it appears a player ...

Re: Kursk I have to confirm that the Russians knew German plan very well, possibly also from their western allies (I'm sure of it, in fact) but they received a lot of information from their spies too. The Soviets even launched an artillery counter-attack on German units near Kursk just before the s...

Re: The good, the bad, and the ugly

BTW, the music sucks big time! Even if was the set of best compositions in the world after all that time it would get repetitive. After the initial campaign I just turned the sound off and went with whatever I felt like. Amon Amarth and Sabaton seem to work as decent BGM most of the time for me. :)...

Re: Spanish civil war: Heavy guns ?

Hello, playing on the default difficulty setting, I am in the middle of the Ebro defence, overpowered by the heavy 152 mm of the republicans. I managed to capture enough to field one of these, but I wish that the Condor legion had the foresight to have brought something heavier than the 105 mm... I...

Re: How to go forward with Axis (not: German) Operations and the need for multiple cores - some hopes for the future

Slitherline can run a poll, but I highly doubt there are many fans of Italian and Romanian troops. Both are known to be very weak and inefficient warriors (British called early US troops "Our Italians"), if you want to simulate playing for IT/RO - use the cheapest equipment and only green replacemen...

Re: DLC Roadmap

We need new unheard/unpopular battles, not 10 Norway scenarios. Like the largest ever tank battle was 1941 Dubno (or Brody in English sources) but noone heard about it because Prokhorovka got all the PR to cover for stupid decisions of general Rotmistrov. Or did you know there was a full-size auto b...
