Re: 21 cm artillery

German artillery offers a good mix of options, especially if you include the captured units and the Stug IV so it's not surprising there's a lot of different views. . Personally I often stick with a mix of 105 and 170. The 105 offers plentiful ammo, 100% RoF, is good against soft targets and OK vs h...

Re: At what time should you be content with your (infantry) unit(s) heroes?

2 or 3* experience is better than any one hero, and there's no guarantee that you'll get a better hero next time round so I would recommend retirement rather than disbanding. You'll need a reasonable amount of infantry later on and having a few 2 or 3* units in reserve can be handy, so I'd suggest t...

Damaged unit icons

Following Yrfin's suggestion on GUille1434's Multipurpose icons page, I have created a thread for images of damaged equipment icons and links to collections which include damaged vehicles. I'll start with my own damaged tank icon. The base the image was adapted from a photo of a model on the interne...

Re: SUPER GREAT NEWS I AM ON YOUTUBE

Hi Goose2, Personally I don't usually restart once committed to a campaign unless I make a really dumb mistake or if I identify a brilliant new strategy (in the last few weeks I come up with quite a few novel ways to foul up most of the Afrika Korps scenarios so have restarted a few times). I'd be r...

Re: Guille's PzCorps Support Base - Multipurpose Icons and more.

Guille. Great suggestion on applying damage through a camo pattern. And your icons are really good and always appreciated. My only criticism would be that I keep trying to create new mods to use them in rather than finishing off the growing pile of half completed mods. Yrfin I think that Churchlakec...

Re: Heroes.

The honest answer is "it depends". The combat result calculation means that you get a big difference in odds when A and D are within about +/-4 points, but less benefit once it's more than that. So +6D isn't very useful on a Churchill croc since D is usually already so much higher than most attacks ...

Re: AKRebels New PzCorps Units - GER Vehicles

I love the look of those early war tanks, even though I know they generally would have been of limited use. If you somehow find time to get round to British ones my requests would be - first the ones that saw service: Vickers E (single turret),early model Vickers Lights (Mark II or Mark IV had a bit...

Re: AKRebels New PzCorps Units - GER Building

Thanks for the tank traps - they are much better than the ones I had been using earlier.
And the other images are good too.

Panzersperren (Tschechenigel)

I use anti-tank obstacles in one of my mods, but wasn't happy with the images. These will make a great replacement.

I just downloaded it from the link withoput logging in (I have forgotten my account details anyway).
Click on the folder icon labelled 7zip.
Go through the tedium of Captcha verification, wait 8 or 9 seconds, click download. Unzip once finished.

Re: Guide: How to add new units.

It looks like your image is a jpg with a white background. You need to use png files with a clear background and to ensure that the overall image has the same size as standard ones. All of the images posted on this site are in suitable format and size, so will appear correctly. You've already worked...

Re: Just upgraded my PC to Gold.

I'd be surprised if any more official developments came out, but by the time you've played through East, West, Sealion, Soviet, Allied Corps, US Corps and Afrika Korps, you can either start again at a different difficulty level (or other personal challenge), try multiplayer or play mods. That should...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

I follow the kind of approach described by Turtler - maybe two SPAA to escort spearheads, and one or two towed 88s or 128s to weaken enemy aircraft and to defend the main body. I can usually get away with 2 or 3 fighters but you do have to be careful to keep them away from the enemy AA.

Thanks for the movement file. Once I've been through this, I should be ready to re-start my British Expeditionary Force mod.

Re: New Campaign Idea?

I've been experimenting with restricted reinforcements and even with 60% prestige and retaining Oleh Dir, Kerscher and Lent it adds a noticeable challenge in 39 and 40 (which is as far as I've got with this). The one criticism of the reinforcements as a percentage of existing force is that it reward...

Re: Semi historical attempt

I had another go through 39 and 40, again with Nicos' modded campaigns and a slightly tweaked version of his equipment file. Nico's mod starts with a hero-Panzer 3, which I converted to a Panzer 2. Light divisions were 1 panzer (Pz2 in one, Pz1 in the other), one infantry a truck, one artillery (a 7...
