Re: Panzer Corps 2 Community Contest - On the hunt for photos suitable for HERO PORTRAITS - UPDATE on last page

Some Soviet Pilots. Most are Heroes of the Soviet Union and possibly too famous but weren't known to me beforehand. And unfortunately not many with caps.

After searching for a bit, it seems finding high quality photos is easy. Determining their copyright status is hard.

Re: Erik's campaigns

This is too much for me :D I don't think I'm cut out for it...not a complaint against the scenario design, more some of the game mechanics. Particularly the supply system and unit cap don't feel thought out, and actually seem at odds with one another. Combat is slower, but the turn limits are about ...

Does the AI use LoS?

Few eyebrow raising situations that have me thinking that perhaps the AI doesn't use LoS? - AI seems to to know combat calculations on radar blips. I have a Bf109 and a Bf110 traveling through the FoW, AI's fighters always attack the Bf110 in a deliberate and suspicious manner, even if it's the targ...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Thanks for the tips Horst and Prattaa, I was able to make it through. OoB really is a different beast, and I love seeing these familiar campaigns re-imagined. I was shocked when the Polish staging force north of Lodz made a counter-attack, that was a very close and exciting battle! I think the key w...

I confess I don't know for sure, but I always assumed it was to let you know Destroyers in that radius will detect you with Sonar.

So uhhh....Poznan is kicking my ass :o I've played the PC GC many, many times, and while I'm still not as experienced with OOB, I didn't think I'd be running straight into a wall. The key difference seems to be your initial forces and the strength of the Polish air force. In PC you could swat it awa...

Re: Using Artillery and Subs

The Gabe Mod on the first page of the scenario design subforum makes some slight tweaks to many unit stats...and an enormous buff for subs, which might say something about their state.

Re: Using Artillery and Subs

I don't know exactly how efficiency calculations is done, but I'd be willing to bet each point lost is worth more than the one before it. So going from 5 > 4 is twice the loss that 10 > 9 is. This would explain why I felt artillery was useless when I started playing. I came in with a Panzer Corps mi...

Re: Tank attack range?

Interesting that artillery will be able to return fire now. That was always a frustration I had playing Civil War Generals 2, that if you focus your cannons on an enemy battery, they would somehow find the time amidst the barrage to counter-battery 5+ times and still get to fire during their own tur...

Re: Best feature from the twitch stream?

Right, that's what I thought "Simultaneous Movement" meant...it's just such a huge feature, I figured it would have been talked about more. Amazing that it's being included as an option. I've felt that simultaneous turns were the future for turn-based strategy games for a while now, really excited t...

Re: How to deal with exponential player growth? (soft cap, etc)

I like to play Panzer Corps with a set of house rules, including deployment costs. I can deploy as many units as I want...if I can afford it. Cheap units maintain their usefulness without being throw-away cannon fodder. This has the benefit of essentially being a 'wager' that I can place before a sc...

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gamep

I think for "facing" a simple idea would be to tweak the Mass Attack values. If the supporting unit is adjacent to the attacking unit, the current -1. If it's to the flank of the enemy unit, -2. If it's directly to the rear of the attack, -3.

Re: Suggestions, wishlist and ideas for Panzer Corps 2 gamep

A house rule I've been playing with in my latest grand campaign is deployment costs. I didn't like how cheap units aren't worth their core slot as the campaign progresses, so I came up with this to help keep infantry the mainstay of my forces. 1. Unlimited core slots 2. To deploy a unit in a scenari...

Re: Lost Units

Well all the SSVT units active in Poland were infantry, artillery, or recon. If you want them to have some special armoured units, maybe move the availability of the Panzer III E up by a few months? They didn't go into production until October, but hey this is all alternate history after all.

Re: I am quite pesimistic about this game...

I was initially skeptical for a lot of the reasons already mentioned. 3D is not inherently better, nor really that important in the scope of things. But I found myself in a strange place recently, called JPs Panzers Wargame & History Forums. There I was reading about some of the history of the PG se...

Re: Poll: How much RAM does your computer have?

4gb DDR2 @ 400mhz! Only 10 years old!

Hopefully upgrading this summer, when it would be 16gb DDR 4 @ 3200mhz. Just a slight upgrade.

Many thanks! Look forward to testing it. Though I've noticed the movement file isn't refreshed on starting a new campaign scenario like the equipment file is. Oh well. I think the 251/1 has found a sweet spot here, since I normally never considered it an option. But with the Opel Blitz, infantry tha...

Re: Test: New movement cost and types

I think I'll try 2 movement for lighter guns, that will certainly give them a niche next to the larger calibers.

Another issue with countryside: towed guns have -50% movement, which means that with only 1 movement they can cross 2 countryside tiles.
