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

I reduced the cost of the half-track mounted Flak quite a bit in v1.9, and also later on you can get the Panzer-chassis flak, which are plenty armored against the Soviet planes. I also continue to use 88 guns, but you could upgrade ones with attack heroes with SPAAG, and watch them knock out the Ru...

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

Doing Prokhorovka just now, for the second time. The first was to mostly see what is going down - I had very bad unit placement (gathered far too much close to the Rzhavets, where the player is actually blocked by trenches by the river). I left some infantry to enjoy summer in Russia (while they sti...

Re: Music

I'll get AK in ca. 2 weeks. Does it actually have new music? In general I'd prefer a bit variety in music during a battle over spoken briefings or more big pics for the library. Dunno how other players think about it, but if it's not in AK maybe adding some pieces of music could be done in further ...

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

News from the front – after finishing Stalingrad Docks (an MV, but much better, than the last playthrough – I only lacked Pavlov’s House to get a DV) I decided to commit suicide and try the escape path. I am glad to report I did just fine and scored two DV’s! Before I kissed myself on the forehead f...

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

Regarding this issue, I have updated to v1.11 and played with my e-files, but I have not noticed that the graphics for these units are corrupted. Rather, the Sdkfz 251/1 halftrack doesn't make a sound sometimes, but that is an issue that players who have not have played with these efiles also has. ...

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

Spaces make no difference. The game works with them. The sound file should have the same space, which they do have in the stock game. Space or underbar _ works. Both files need to be the same. This mad needs the data to be the same in each file. I know this. Patch 1.11 corrected few typos - deleted...

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

I found a tiny mistake in the equipment file. There are unnecessary spaces in few.png file names. They are leftovers of the mistakes in the original files, fixed by the developers in the last patch. The spaces are in the following names: SdKfz _10-4.png (it's in two places) SdKfz _251-1.png SS_SdKfz...

Re: Panzer Corps GC '42-'43 West and v1.11 Update Released!

As for combat mechanics, this game is transparent when compared with many wargames. With some effort, the average player can understand all aspects of how combat works. I only wish this could be clearly explained in an appendix of the manual, so anyone who wants to know can read about it rather tha...

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

Basically, I can't have all 43 infantry available. Some units like the Kradschutzen are automatically upgraded via directly changing the unit stats in the equipment file, which is impossible to do since the new Western GC covers both 42 and 43. So I have 3 options: Probably an idiotic suggestion, b...

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

"I also did as you suggested with the Stukas – one of them is the latest model and fully upgraded, the other is cheap and only rarely overstrength, I throw it on the AA guns." Fascinating. I like this idea very much, yet I am faced with a dilemma....One Stuka with an A3, the other with a D3. In my ...

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

Once you play around some in the late war, you'll gain a great understanding of combined arms tactic against an AI that is no longer a pushover, and you'll go back and find the scenarios from 1939-1942 to be a breeze. Absolutely true. I managed to finally achieve DV in Streets of Moscow for the fir...

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

I recommend orlinos that you try playing the game on General or FM, and just take some losses along the way, using reform units and abundant elite reinforcements to get used to the game. Once you play around some in the late war, you'll gain a great understanding of combined arms tactic against an ...

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

3. Soviet 76.2mm ART range 2 to 3. Excellent! I am very happy! One more step closer to historical accuracy! :) The thing I am worried about is that this range change might turn many simple cities into player's artillery killers - the Soviets will be able to easily remove overstrenght points from Ge...

Re: Arrival of first SE Tank Unit?

You are right, you do earn experience a lot faster in Rommel than in FM! That astounded me for a while, as I was reaching the experience caps a lot faster than in my previous game. Never knew Rommel was juiced but I'm glad it is. In fact, the rate of gaining experience in Rommel is 100%, the same a...

Re: Dates for Introduction of New Equipment

The only true date change I have found is for 5 cm Pak 38: 1.05: 17.4.1941 1.10: 23.3.1941 The rest is in the file. It seems a lot of changes at the first glance, but in reality it's mostly new transports, theatres (that's the mysterious lone "1" in some columns) and new traits. Mind you, it's a rou...

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

I think the key point to note is that the more towed AT you have, the harder it is to use them. Almost everyone uses at least 1 or 2 towed AT in 1939-1941: the 88 gun. Start adding more and positioning becomes very tricky. Hey, maybe that's the reason I'm so bad in using AT. :D At the beginning of ...

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

The 7.5 cm Pak 40 is also surprisingly good (so much so that I'm considering massively raising its cost in 1942 and lowering it in 1943). I have my doubts about it, since the AT in Panzer Corps (at least for me) are supposed to be cheap but hard to position correctly. Raise the costs too much and i...

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

Also - I don't know if it's a feature or a mistake:

Panzer IIF does become a tank in 1941, but it is of PzIIRec series, while Panzer IIC still stays in PzII class - so upgrade in series is impossible. In 1942 - both units are in PzIIRec.

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

2. StuG IIIB, StuH 42, StuG IV, Brummbar cost reduced by 5-10%. I haven't managed to speak up before the latest round of changes, so I'll do it now. I miss a bit the price decrease of StuG IIIB in 1942-43. I understand the historical reasons, but for the gameplay: lesser players (me!) might have St...
