Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

There is a bug in Unreal that meant the extra brightening given to the units was causing a chronic flickering. That didn't matter when all we were showing was stills. As soon as we had to show animation we had to remove it since darkening of the units is not as offensive as irritating flickering. O...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

When I suggested that for PzC2 you insisted it would never work, yet it works fine in Fantasy General. I'm not going to argue with you any more about it, because it is clearly useless. I will only point out to what I actually said on this subject, and leave it to other people reading this topic to ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

I don't know, I don't really see any particular advantage to the British Empire, or how Germany would have to beg the USSR for necessities. As one of the other posters noted above, Germany became heavily indebted to the USSR from 1939 onwards. That's not a tenable long-term situation. There wasn't ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

Yes, if there's one single defining moment at which Germany lost the war, it must surely be when Hitler brought the full wrath of Uncle Sam on his head- WIKI- "On 11 December 1941, four days after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Nazi Germany declared war against the United States " Churchill w...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

The whole idea of "elite reinforcements" is pure fantasy. I can lose 90% of a unit's strength and always be able to replace my losses with men and equipment that are at least as good? When was that true for any army in any modern war? And worse, there is no apparent impact on morale or support for ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

His focus was on the Vengeance Weapons program that results in the V1 buzz bomb and V2 cruise missile
You mean V1 cruise missile (aka buzz bomb). The V2 was a ballistic missile.

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

Enhancing the original PzC's more conventional strategic bombing aspects in PzC 2 would be more compelling for game play-ability IMHO, although I can't argue with the historical significance of the a-bomb. I mentioned atomic bombs only in the context of how to make USA East a bit better. Whether th...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

Regarding atomic bombs, it only took two to make Japan surrender, but whether the USA would have surrendered if Germany used a couple against NY or DC we'll never know...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

I think the A-bomb would be to op to use in a game such as this. And historically with the way germany handled its armaments, its highly unlikely it would have received much more than it did. The extent of german interest into it resulted in a small generator built in a cellar that they never got w...

Re: How to use 8.8cm FlaK 36 to best effect?

I wish Germany had made lots of Jagdpanthers instead of costly projects like King Tigers and Jagdtigers. I don't wish that. It would have prolonged the war and increased the total casualties (most WW2 casualties were due to starvation / disease / genocides not combat, so anything the prolonged the ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

OK. I'm glad that we've progressed from "awful" to "fine and adequate" in such a short time. :P The vanilla campaign is awful from a gameplay perspective, but it was adequate from a commercial perspective. It may have set back the franchise, you'd know better than me, but it did not kill it. PzC li...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

In my opinion it was not awful at all, I sure had fun with it myself, and there are many other people who did. It was so poorly designed calling it a campaign is a stretch. If you win early on, you get transported from 1941 to 1945 which guarantees you a loss since your units will have no XP and mo...

Re: How to use 8.8cm FlaK 36 to best effect?

Well there's no magic, you use it very carefully. The thing is, the 88 is far, far better than any AT the Germans have, at least until 1942 when the Stug 3 series comes out. Even after that, it still has advantages- tank destroyers have virtually no soft attack and so basically can't fight back aga...

Re: GS 42-43 Messina ends early

Loyalty is a difficult word to apply to the Italians as there were few, if any, that stayed on the same side throughout the whole war. The country betrayed the Allies to start the war, but also betrayed the Axis. Mussolini was betrayed, but he also betrayed Italian efforts at democracy by making hi...
