Re: One of the best Ancients games ever

I find these army shields really stylish actually, and I think dragging & dropping armies across the map really feels like being Emperor of Rome :mrgreen: But I guess this is very subjective. I can only say that I personally think this is one of the most beautiful 2D war games ever, especially becau...

Re: GJS'44 - D-Day - 6th airborne defend Villers-Bocage

No, I'm fine with leaving it as it is. Apart from that, I'd say that kingt is the one who suffered from it and not me :mrgreen: Replaying would be stupid because BA is very much a game of luck, too. If I now got lucky and killed something more valuable with a hidden Panzerschreck or FlaK, Kingt migh...

Re: GJS'44 - D-Day - 6th airborne defend Villers-Bocage

Indeed, I did pretty horrible. :oops: I have to credit Kingt, he knows how to attack properly. Kingt lost 1 Universal Carrier (to the Puma which was apparently shouldn't have been there, your decision if to count or not) and he killed every last man of me. Well, actually 90 % of those cowards surren...

Re: GJS'44 - D-Day - 6th airborne defend Villers-Bocage

I accepted Gold vs kingt. I have selected my units but there is one small issue that should be corrected: when selecting units, I have 9 pre-selected, which is logical, and I must add 16 more to reach my 25 quota for the battle. But I have 2000 to spend on them which means I could add 20 + 9. I hav...

Re: New Units - Requests & Sightings?

I don't think there is any info regarding the time the game is set in yet? I would assume it's rather late in the war (Bagration '44 would be my best guess) but please don't forget the most important tank of the Soviets in the first year: T26! Many games "forget" to include it, but it was built 11,0...

Re: Strange but true - we are under attack!

Metacritic is sadly hugely important for retail and the wider market and this is game that cross over to the wider market and would have had a retail launch next year if this has not destroyed that chance. Is Metacritic really THAT important? In all other generes if I have noticed one thing it's th...

Oh right I forgot the Allied side.. well, such a small oversight can happen from time to time :D
Operation Husky seems most likely now that you mention it.

Re: Tanks as transport?

Why would you enter the transport in the first place if you can just ride on a tank which has way more armour? Unless of course it is possible to allow targetting of the infantry sitting on the tank...

Re: Tanks as transport?

1 infantry unit on 1 tank would make transports basically useless. Splitting infantry wouldn't be a good solution either . So I just don't see it working.

Re: After BA: need a game that's half a step up.

It is, yeah. Orders are simple, eg. you select movement type (eg Quick/Slow/Hunt) and then left click to move. You select target command and left click to attack. And all abilities are simple things like "Unbutton" or "Dismount". Nothing complicated, really. There are advanced game concepts though. ...

Re: After BA: need a game that's half a step up.

New Combat Mission series (2.x engine) is really great and fun to play, I bought it just a few weeks ago. I bought Shock Force + the Addons (15 $ + 40 $) and Fortress Italy (55 $) by now. It's a steep price, but I have no problem with paying much for a quality product (in all honesty, if I would, I ...

You can only have 64 units per side so the numbers you posted won't work.

Re: Battle Academy: napoleonics

I like Battle Academy. I like interesting game concepts. I am interested in Napoleonic age. Hell yes!
Though what scale do you have in mind? Because I don't think a scale of 5 men per unit would make a lot of sense?

Re: Next addon guess

Well I am just assuming that if you COULD tell us then you WOULD PROPABLY also have plans for any addons and thats enough info for me already :P
Frankly I can hardly judge how successful BA and its expansions are actually so I am always worried development of the next one is not worth it for you.
