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

I no longer have a desk job so I can't afford to spend hours involved in forum discussion like I did the first time around. I made a bunch of suggestions during PzC Beta and later (feel free to search my post history if you care) including "Reform Units": which was eventually adapted. I won't write ...

Re: Panzer Korps Grand campaign play order

Not sure if Steam lets you edit the game files but I've combined east and west campaigns into a single campaign file and use a slightly larger core to do both simultaneously - one corps on the east, the other on the west, HQ reserves transferring between fronts as necessary, and occasionally reinfor...

Re: 1939-1945 GC Mega Pack balance?

More precisely has the RP points gain been tailored to the new structure of the campaign (100+ linked scenarios)? I would want to avoid the situation where Iam literary swimming in requisition halfway through the game. I was planning on playing on the default (challenging) difficulty. The short ans...

Re: Rate your PG and PzC games

My entire review can be summed up as 1 step forward, 1 or more steps back. PG had a huge impact on the computer wargaming scene because it was able to pack a surprising amount of historical *flavour* (as opposed to realism) into a slick and easy to learn interface and add a healthy dose of RPG on th...

Re: AT

Edit the equipment file to make the 8.8cm Flak anti tank mode purchase-able. Use the "Core" cheat in scenarios like Arras to add a core slot so you can deploy you flak/AT and use it in place of the auxiliary 8.8cm. When you're ready to upgrade you just have to leave it in AT mode at the end of a sce...

Re: '45 East: Offensive or Defensive?

IMO the first offensive scenario, and the last defensive scenario are the most interesting.

Re: How many core units can be deployed at max? Which Scenar

I would assume the developers felt a) smaller scenarios are easier to design and test than larger ones and b) there was a sweet spot in scenario size that would appeal to the average casual gamer and the occasional maximum effort scenario like Prokhorovka was thrown in as a means of providing variety.

Re: How many core units can be deployed at max? Which Scenar

45 in Berlin, 50 in Berlin Redux - not including SE units.

Most scenarios in 44/45 deploy significantly less.

Re: newbie: please explain parachutists deployment

When you deploy your forces at the start of the scenario hover over the embark/disembark button - it will tell you how many free transports you have. IF you have available transport, selecting a parachute infantry WITHOUT attached truck/halftrack will bring up air deployment hexes. Click on an empty...

Re: Allied Corps way to easy?

The solution for how to design a proper Soviet campaign, forcing the player to use massive amounts of inferior units, is actually quite simple. Small CORE, lots of AUX units. I would disagree - the CORE force is what makes the PG series of games enjoyable. The real problem with trying to shoe horn ...

Re: Very upset.

P.S. In case anyone draws the wrong conclusion, I love Panzer Corps, it is a huge improvement on PG and finally replaced it as my absolute favorite game. I think Alex did an amazing job. But I don't think he achieved perfection. And my biggest disappointment is that the game is stagnated as they see...

Re: Very upset.

Given my prior knowledge of the complete SSI series, given the lead programmers stated stance (read the mod comment), it is you that misses the point. PC is a direct successor to PG, with minor improvements and tweaks yet vastly improved content. And the ability to blitz through all of the scenario...

An interesting topic and one that raises the age old issue of casual Vs. hard core players, achieving a balance can be very difficult indeed.

Back to the OP [For whom was the] 'snowball' effect was a problem and they had to stop playing the game because of it? Muddy. I think Muddy would qualify as a casual player. He was enjoying the game until he hit a brick wall in DLC 1942. While you and Thorsten have latched onto the 1.20 changes (whi...

Re: Very upset.

I think Boredatwork perfectly described the problem which the soft prestige cap attempted to solve. It is undeniably a problem and saying it's fine because PG had the same flaw is a bit shortsighted imho. Everything he described as being fixed was possible for the 'good' player to do without the so...

Re: Very upset.

I am sorry to say - you invented a solution for a non existing problem. As difficulties can be chosen from dlc to dlc, for the "steamroller" players the solution was very obvious - raise difficulty. Either from the start or in between. It might have been necessary to create a combined "Rommle/Manst...

Re: AA Movement Prior to Firing

It has to do with the work around the developers added as sometimes players would want to shoot at an aircraft, while other times (albeit rarely) players would want to move your AA UNDER one aircraft to get in range of another farther away. How does the program know whether you want to shoot at an a...

Re: Tiger v Panther v Mark IV

From mid GC43 onwards I use 6 PzIVs, 3 Panthers, 3 StuGs, and 1 Tiger until the last scenario of GC44 East. After that the Soviets simply have too much quantity and quality for me to keep up. I either have to drop the difficulty down to FM OR I give in and upgrade most to Panthers.
