Order of Battle: Sandstorm - Check the new screenshots

Post by AlbertoC » Thu Apr 12, 2018 12:01 pm

The Beta for Sandstorm, the new upcoming DLC in the Order of Battle series, goes on, and we are gathering some tremendous feedback from the community.

We're really busy balancing the scenarios right now, but we're getting there. We will start to publish more information on the expansion very soon.

In the meantime, we captured a few new screenshots to tease you while you wait. We're really curious to hear what you think of them, and what can you make out of them. Let's put your observation skill at test!

...exept of German Infantry-Uniforms. I'm still missing the chracteristical AK-Tropenuniform, which soldiers often kept wearing thruout the rest of the war. The Italians do have one, though.
Will this be changed until release?

He didn't need to be so confrontational either on a promotional post too. Btw, he's been banned before under another Manstein_something nickname so not a first offender.

@all: Guys, this is the policy:

http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 74&t=77956

That account was on our watchlist for a while and got zapped now. As have his previous one and the next one, too.
This is some serious intellectual property theft and not trolling, so it is a dead serious legal matter. :!:

Those mods stay off the radar because we remove posts linking to them - and we spot suspicious accounts really early. It's not a community, more like a single guy peddling his stuff here. Or at least trying to.

Anyways, everybody signed for the beta? If not, better get going. :D

Dear devs please if it possible to change the uniform for the infantry! and airplanes. It could be awesome that the player could switch the camo also in mechanized and infantry and planes :) too... I know that you have now different priority in Sandstorm but in the future after the release date it could be :)

The beta will most likely go through many iterations. Check your spam folder and be patient, please. We can always use a helping hand. :D

It looks real good! And I will take any uniform colors if the AI is devilish reactiv for a real Brit challenge. Afrikacorps was one of my favorite in Panzercorp.

Same though it seems a lot of people request for uniforms/symbols to be accurate. For me the most important factor is a challenging AI or at least challenging scripts that fire off appropriately.
