Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

Finished Minsk in ’44. What a grinder. The attached screenshot presents most of my forces at the end of the scenario. The Panther in the North used to have 14 strength (and would almost never lose more than 1-2 points, since it’s my “super-unit”). http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8353/8261767617_296c4a...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

Updated to v1.91 new version with many changes: 1. 7.5 cm FK 16 nA range increased to 3, cost increased slightly to compensate. Why the change? I understand the historical reasons (I guess the same as with the Russian equivalent?) but it will change the gameplay quite a bit, leaving only mobile art...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

"some countries" - that's quite an understatement...;) well, anyway there are so many places that work without such limits, not to mention dropbox, ubuntu one etc... so does anyone have it and could share it? There is another link on the Matrix Forum: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3159...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

Your observation is noted, Deducter. I have seriously considered for the first time playing on Rommel, or perhaps subtracting -75% of my prestige. I'm not too clear on what the differences would be by switching to Rommel - I've never found a clear and distinct answer regarding the bonus difficultie...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

In particular, I understand that the Hetzer is not functioning in its intended role as final evolution of the light tank destroyers like the Marder II and Marder III. Also, the StuG IIIG could use a boost, since it was such a successful tank destroyer. In particular, its IN will go up to 7, which m...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

Panzer III tanks (especially SE series) I also found great, especially when experienced and overstrength. I have one with 15 strength, with Movement and Defense heroes – it is cheap, rarely touched by most of the Russians, fast and deadly. Obviously, you don’t want to have too many Panzer III, sinc...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

I'm not sure how to start using the StuGs...I'd like them to be elite tank killers but I think they'd make perfect distractions later in the war. Maybe I'll have one of each. Impressive looking core! :D I remember I also found it hard to train AT StuGs at the beginning (especially since they are no...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

[ The early years of the GCs have a exp cap. GC39 is 225, GC40 is 325, and GC41 is 375. That balances out the fast experience growth. The Germans are meant to have a significant experience advantage over their opponents in these years, and this is historically realistic too. […] Trust me on this, d...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

I just finished Babruysk. While I managed to score a DV in Mogilev (it cost me one of my StuG IIIG and Sdkfz 7/1 but it was worth it) – Babruysk is a different story. I’ve been trying to finish it for few days and it always ended with massacre of my best troops and Reds pouring through every hole. F...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

I have only one question: maybe you remember, earlier when the first DLCs were released I found the campaign too easy because of the too many prestige. I have now hard times even in the first scenarios because my favorites - the artillery is really expensive. :lol: So, will the gameplay also hard l...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

Yes it is 10. Orlinos. I cannot really be much more attentive to detail here considering how painful my modding mistakes have been. This is the right version. The glitches I'm referring to had spaces. These do not, but have the exact same effect. If one is to 'fix' a typo in the eqp file it should ...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

Deducter, did you use a different Eqp file as the base for v1.9? I started '42 and the old Sdkfz glitch is back. The one with the _'s EDIT: A good way to fix this without having to reload the campaign and re-deploy all over again is to make duplicates in the efx file, one with the extra space and o...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

I have another (small this time) question - does the mod affect Afrika Korps in any way? No, this doesn't support Afrika Korps at all. I may one day do something for Afrika, but it won't be as simple as just copying over a bunch of values. I'm actually asking being on the verge on buying AK - will ...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

I have just tried the mod out, I must say that I love the rebalancing between the units, finally, more unit types work and make sense. Great job with that! What I do not like, and frankly do not understand, is why so many unit types are not available anymore - Koening Tiger, Elephant etc. I guess t...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for PzC v1.10

[...] I'd love to hear about Kiev43 [...] O. My. God. I have finished 1943 and I’m starting Korsun Pocket with 6555 prestige. Is it enough for 1944? I have spent most of it on fighter elite replacements. EDIT: I do have quite a few almost unused captured units but I itend only to sell them in the d...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

Nothing that fancy! I just banged on a lone Panzerjäger 1B with heavy Russian tanks (KV’s, T-34/41’s etc.) and a Matilda. Sometimes the Panzerjäger was defended by StuG artillery, sometimes not. More tests, with Wehrmacht Infantry killing 3 different Matilda 2's in the woods, with entrenchment of 2...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

Yes, Orlinos. It also seems to me that the AI is programmed to reward the player for "accepting" certain things. I like the limited randomness as it does make the game more interesting, and maybe from a certain perspective more realistic. I suppose I should also state here that this is the first pl...

Re: Grand Campaign Unit Revisions - Update for GC42-43West

Are normal reinforcements acceptable to use now? I'd be curious about what % of the time you reach for normal vs elite reinforcements. Personally I use normal reinforcements about 50% of the time now. I did no measurements, so I cannot give precise percentage. Generally, I use elite reinforcements:...

Re: French Campaign Misery

Playing as Colonel with DLC content, Mostly DV's up to France, then I struggle. On Sedan no matter where try and attack there are simply too many enemy units. Worse still later on I capture French general and around a dozen French units appear out of nowhere and I fail. Where do they get all the Pr...
