Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

CL looked like Close Combat with hexes. Google found this old Matrix Games page. http://www.matrixgames.com/products/284/details/ Hi DSWargamer, Thanks for the link to the Combat Leader description. I do remember reading it a long time ago. I like the concept of awarding promotion and medals; a goo...

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

I found the following comment (below) on the SPWAW website <http://spwaw.com/> "Matrix Games recently announced that all work on the Combat Leader project has been suspended, and the project is cancelled. However, all is not lost! David Heath, president of Matrix Games, expressed an interest recentl...

Re: Close combat - Panthers in the Fog

"....Precisely why for instance, does a game of 'close combat' need to be about 'close combat' between what is a couple of companies of troops when it could just as well be a couple of platoons of troops eh? Just because the computer can handle the data, is no reason to put as much load on it as it...

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

I can actually field that reply for you (On Combat Leader). Combat Leader was the response to all of us wanting a newer updated experience, alas I guess it was a bridge too far at the time. It was basically attempting to be Steel Panthers reborn, just not legally bound to whomever it is that owns t...

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

+1 to both of you. Make a new Steel Panthers. Though I can't ever see it happening. For starters Matrix was on the road at one time with Combat Leader only it got scrapped. The biggest disappointed so far from matrix for me was the day that happened. Hi Wodin, I looked for some information re: Comb...

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

[quote="DSWargamer"]Me too, although I suspect my view is already a well established comment :) I'd like to see Steel Panthers replaced, not take the old software and pretend it can be fluffed up and made to work, no, I just want a game of the same scale, same style (top down turn based squad tactic...

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

I would like to see a new Steel Panthers game or 'Steel Tigers - War in the West'. I feel that there is room for both Panzer Corp and Steel Panthers in the slitherine / Matrix collection of games.

Re: Close combat - Panthers in the Fog

VonRyan, Also the smaller the map scale the more you see of it on screen, especially back when CC series came out when most had 15 inch monitors. So for a topdown game small scale map is a good thing it means you get a bigger picture and not have to keep scrolling everywhere trying to see where eve...

Re: Close combat - Panthers in the Fog

In the Stalingrad mod the maps were drawn with a scale of 5 pixels per meter, the vehicles had a scale of 10 pixels per meter and the soldiers 12 pixels per meter : as you can see I had only increased the size of the vehicles. I would say my favourite scale is 10 pixels per meter as I like to see s...

Re: Close combat - Panthers in the Fog

though I have drawn a lot of maps for Close Combat (and especially the stalingrad ones), I'm happy that the new engine after panthers in the fog will be a 3D one. The restriction with the 2D and the last engine was too restrictive (one thing that always bothers me was the fact that the original sca...
