Re: Questions for game developers

Hello to all. I am French and I speak through a translator (DeepL). 1st question: how many meters does a hexagon represent? Depends on the scenario. Hundreds of meters up to around 100km. 2: why is the range of weapons not always taken into account? Example 8.8 german Flak: 3 hex in AA mode, 1 in A...

Re: New Poll Most Important Hero 1st/2nd/or 3rd

I don't hero farm. I take what I get. Win some lose some. I do however sell off SE infantry. If you sell off a SE unit, how long until they gift you another one? Will you still have the same amount of SE units eventually? I believe it's 25% chance per scenario, and 50/50 if it will be infantry or t...

Re: Replacement 'equipment' file anyone?

You speak as if you are playing a totally different game than the rest of us! And that might very well be the case here I think the guy speaks about Single Game Scenarios and most likely ones he or someone else created with the editor. Yeah, if he's doing custom scenarios where all the units have z...

Re: Replacement 'equipment' file anyone?

You speak as if you are playing a totally different game than the rest of us! Let's take a step back from criticizing the equipment file and focus on improving our skills. I have created some scenarios with 88s in defensive positions but they do not perform very effectively, even if grouped together...

Re: Pz3's versus Pz4's thoughts

I agree with the comments above concerning the roles of each. However, from 43 onwards the Panzer 4 is simply better. That means that if you are playing at your highest possible difficulty setting where you have to be as financially efficient as possible you should probably avoid the Panzer 3 comple...

Re: Replacement 'equipment' file anyone?

I have played through numerous Eastern and Western (excluding desert) scenarios and found the 88 flak/AT pretty useless. In any case, it gets wiped out by almost anything thrown at it while itself accounting for few kills. The firepower of the 88 is at odds with its fearsome and deserved reputation...

Re: Why No Pacific Campaign?

Following that poor man's logic Decisive Campaigns and Grigsby series are infinately worse cause they have smaller player base then simpler, strategy-lite likes PZC. Maybe in your world bigger group of people nodding heads behind your back makes you right, hardly suprising, just don't expect me to ...

Re: Afrika Korps and Elefant upgrade

(I guess they would rather have 2 Panzer 3 or 4 than 1 Elefant) Except that the Elefant only costs 16% more than a top of the line Panzer 4 and is far, far more powerful. I'd definitely take an Elefant over 1.2 Panzer 4s. That said I used the Elefant in the Game and while it's striking ability is f...

Re: Why No Pacific Campaign?

As I play both games I can say neither is inferior PZC has: - bigger player base That's because it's vastly better. I mean if these games were in different categories like one being strategy and one being real-time shooter, you could argue that popularity is affected by the size of the target audie...

Re: Soviet Corps - invasion of Manchuria

Thanks guys for your help, especially hurly. Thanks to you I realised how useful "switch" units are. And you are right, towed AA is the key to victory, Japaneese have to pay high price for their air attacks and if in need it can be used as AT. I forgot about this unit after Barbarossa. After readin...

Re: Afrika Korps and Elefant upgrade

I never consider the slow moving Elefants as less useful however, especially not with a +move hero - they are perfect defensive lines for any post-1943 Russian flank attacks... Yeah the Elefant's in-game weakness is supposed to be slowness, but that's of little consequence on most scenarios. Even a...

Re: Afrika Korps and Elefant upgrade

I don't think this is really about being historical- we're talking the campaign where you fly across the Caucasus in gliders carrying Tiger tanks after all. Rather by the time Afrika corps came out it was obvious that the Elefant is exceedingly overpowered in the game, particularly in open terrain, ...

No problem. They were loud about announcing the 2018 release back last year, but much quieter about pushing it back. ;) I dunno, we announced both things in the announcements section of this very forum. Or do you suggest to make another video trailer for that? :) Dunno. You could ask your exclusive...

Re: Why No Pacific Campaign?

USA vs UK? What is that, some drill mission? There are two such scenarios- "Formation" and "Achnacarry", both part of US Corps 42. Never mind... its just drill mission. I dont count to this something like that. In Panzer Corps, when you die in a drill you stay dead. For all intents and purposes its...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #6

priority has been given to countries like Italy, Hungary and Romania which fought through the entire war , although other countries, like Poland, Slovakia and even Belgium and Netherlands also got expanded.

Re: Why No Pacific Campaign?

Whole Panzer Corps is about fight for Germany or against Germans (Soviet have one mission vs. Japs in fact)... Pacific theatre dont fit to this. If you want great Pacific warfare try Order of Battle. There are at least eight official scenarios that don't involve the Germans. The two USSR vs. Japan ...

Re: Why No Pacific Campaign?

As others have said, PzC is weak in navy. It can still be fun, however. Orkney Islands and Reykyavik are two great naval scenarios from the Sealion campaign pack. So they still could have made Pacific Corps if they wanted to. Some suggest that they were trying to somehow protect Order of Battle whic...
