Re: Panzer Corps goes Greenlight

The argument a game needs to be 3d and real time and awesome graphics forgets all of the very successful turn using very tactical very graphically simple role games that have sold quite profitably. There is a lot less separating Final Fantasy Tactics and most squad level wargames than you might thi...

Re: Really Liking the Gustav Rail Gun

Well, from a design standpoint I don't see how it's possible to simultaneously please both the historical accuracy crowd and the powergaming crowd. If anyone is familiar with BG2 modding at all, it's the debate between Sword Coast Stratagems and Improved Anvil. What I think would be nice is to have ...

Well, Guderian DID know the Tiger I was coming, but instead he actually wanted to build more Panzer IVs. Just fyi.

Re: Really Liking the Gustav Rail Gun

For fun it would be cool to see the Langer Gustav employed as a weapon (even though it was never completed--kind of like the gotha bombers and Amerika Bomber). It would also be cool to see the Landkruzer P. 1500 Monster impleneted in the game. The Gotha Bomber and Amerika Bomber are in the game, fo...

Re: Really Liking the Gustav Rail Gun

I think it could kill up to four units and also suppress an additional four units. Rudankort indicated in a post buried in history somewhere that units roll separately for kill and suppress chances, so it has four chances to kill a unit and four chances to suppress a unit. - Case Hi Case, thanks fo...

Re: Panzer Corps goes Greenlight

I bought numerous, mostly indie, games on Steam and I am always amazed how many people whine that some atypical, very idiosyncratic game they bought - like FTL or Gratuitous Space Battles - is crap and has no 3D and is crap and has crap graphics and is too tough and complicated and is crap...

Re: Auxiliary Units

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. If you don't want it, don't use it. Balla. :) I can't speak for others, but for me personally, I en...

Re: Auxiliary Units

An option to buy auxiliary units never makes scenario more difficult, but it can easily make it trivial, especially if the player has a lot of prestige. Even if we limit aux units to the cheapest infantry, a wave of such infantry can easily block even the strongest tank (like Tiger II), deplete its...

Re: Yet another steam (Digital Distro) thread

The only thing about Steam is that I really, really hope PzC and other future titles don't become Steam exclusive, like what is happening with Stardock's newest Fallen Enchantress expansion. I would happily pay somewhat more to have the more conventional installation options.

Re: Panzer Corps Grand Finale: a DLC and an update!

PzC is a simple game, and keeping it as such should be high on our priority list. How can player choose what kind of randomness he wants if he never played the game in the first place, and does not even understand the whole problem with randomness? That is the question. I think having a tab for adv...

Re: Panzer Corps Grand Finale: a DLC and an update!

Some combats have a rather narrow distribution of probable outcomes, but in some other combats distribution can be quite crazy. I agree. The combat results that are most unpredictable are the cases of equal initiative, high attack, but low defense units attacking each other (examples: Me-262 vs Met...

Re: Panzer Corps Grand Finale: a DLC and an update!

The problem may also be with the basic combat predictor, which is often not accurate. But if you use the detailed combat predictor (Crtl + Click) before a battle, you can see a lot more information, and this prediction is usually much more accurate. We usually remember the freak results, especially ...
