Re: The Snowball Effect and Possible Solutions

We often disagree, but in this particular case your thoughts are similar to my own conclusions. Allies will allow to switch difficulty mid-way, and I'm thinking about a scoring system too. I wonder what is your current idea of an "effective fix". I don't really have a road map to perfection - any a...

Re: The Snowball Effect and Possible Solutions

Wall of text I agree that any single change will almost certainly not be enough to challenge the snowball effect. But it is worthwhile to think about possible solutions. I believe it will require numerous changes**, all working in harmony, to effect a reasonable solution. The main issue I see with ...

Re: The Snowball Effect and Possible Solutions

************************************* For those for whom the following is "Too long, not going to read:" - An effective fix is IMO impossible without a major deviation from the existing prestige system - A poor man's solution would be give the players even more control over customizing difficulty an...

Re: Looking For Allied Commanders to invade Panzer Corps!

Let's put it this way. Allied Corps will not be Panzer Corps 2... But please don't expect miracles. :) Fair enough - better to know now before spending hours arguing for the ideal solution only to discover I have no chance of getting you to implement it. :P Personal preference - if you're using the...

Re: Looking For Allied Commanders to invade Panzer Corps!

give them a chance, its only just been announced. I am interested myself. Why would I not enquire as to the scope and ambition of the project BEFORE volunteering to Beta test? :roll: I was in the original vanilla Beta since day 1.

Re: Looking For Allied Commanders to invade Panzer Corps!

So... "Allied Corps has the same great gameplay, but with Shermans instead of Tigers" If I'm reading the announcement right it's just going to be the same game but with Allied Scenarios instead of German ones? I'd be lying if I said I was anything but disappointed. I was hoping to hear "Allied Corps...

Re: Just cancelled my '42/'43 West purchase. Here's why...

Let's be clear, I'm up to 20 or so emails with Slitherine/Plimus/Bluecrap trying to solve it. And no solution. So let's be democratic and have an open discussion, OK? And yes, it's unacceptable in an instant e-commerce age. Especially if you read the first post about taking much more effort than th...

There's nothing impolite here. It's all factual. Sorry if that offends you. The only really impolite thing is the responses, which ignore the situation and make an ad hominem attack. But if hearing the facts is impolite, please talk to your vendors, and not be rude to customers? Right... characteri...

10 purchases now via Plimus and no issues at all - not that I would really consider a 12 minute wait an issue anyways.

Re: Reform units and save games?

Is it the same for other cheats e.g. "chess"? AFAIK Chess and "all eqp" function similarly - off by default, once you turn them on they stay on for that scenario regardless of how many times you save and load unless you turn them off. Making them an option would be more convenient. Even splitting t...

Re: Reform units and save games?

If you turn it on it will persist for the remainder of the scenario . If you save your game with it on it will remain on when you reload the game. If you restart the scenario entirely or play a different scenario it will be disabled by default. You can enable (or disable) the cheat at anytime during...

Re: Really Liking the Gustav Rail Gun

I was checking out the Wikipedia page on the Gustav Rail Gun and note that it was employed briefly against Stalingrad as well as Leningrad. As such, I would advocate a patch to allow these guns to be employed in the DLC scenarios to provide a semblance of historical reality. God no. The Gustav as i...

Re: Auxiliary Units

But you're missing the point that even a handfull of cheap infantry has balance issues. The scenarios were not balance for you to have the option to do that. Why mess with balance for the ***average*** gamer, who isn't going to know how many aux units he can buy without making the game too easy, whe...

I really don't understand why folk are getting so agitated about this. Yes, I knew it was available under cheat codes, I was only asking for additional OPTION without having to resort to cheat codes.

Re: Auxiliary Units

There are numerous scenarios in the East campaign where you don't really have the forces or time to capture the whole map, there are VH's strewn about, and the AI can spam units all over the place and grab one of them. If the unit spamming rules were tweaked to be more realistic, I don't think this...

Re: Auxiliary Units

The reason the ability to buy Aux units was removed in Beta was in PG it was too easy to disband crappy aux units and pour extra prestige into much more usefull units like extra artillery or airpower which trivialised the content. I am thinking more from the point of view as having a Garrison level ...
