Re: DLC 1940 Prediction Forum Game

Very impressed with all of this. Not only did you encourage the speculation but it seems you were influenced by all of it as well. Thanks for the detailed responses to each suggestion. Sad that my Italians in the Alps didn't work out and what you had in mind sounded interesting but the Channel Islan...

Re: What we'd like to see in DLC AO40 and 41...

I for one would like to see a pole for future directions of the DLCs. Do we want to see an AO41 next, or do we want to see an Afrika Corps, or Allied Operations next. Each could also include poles for what we would like to see in each of these options. I would like to see an option to play an Africa...

Re: DLC 1940 Prediction Forum Game

You may be right, I don't have any specific knowledge about Kursk. When they did use Ultra info they did indeed try to find other plausible ways to have found out the information (ie sending a patrol plane to 'discover' a wolf pack forming up to attack a convoy). They did pass on Rommel's battle pla...

Re: DLC 1940 Prediction Forum Game

Retributarr "KURSK!!!"... What kind of Tank-Battle???: It was referred to as 'The Largest Tank Battle' based mostly on the number of Tanks that were involved... not as to what conditions they were involved in. This 'Brody' encounter that is mentioned... had actually more Tanks involved. According to...

Re: What we'd like to see in DLC AO40 and 41...

I am going for the 2 Italian options. Perhaps I have too many fond memories of the CVT in Spain but it would be interesting to see how they fared a few years on and before they get outclassed in North Africa! So my 2C Italians in the Alps and 5E PanzerCro's Italians in the Balkans (Would be happy to...

Re: What we'd like to see in DLC AO40 and 41...

How about a scenario focusing on the Italian invasion of France (Battle of the Alps). Like Forbach you command the Italians with none of your core troops. It could add a new feature of the risk of death by frostbite!

Re: How to go forward with Axis (not: German) Operations and the need for multiple cores - some hopes for the future

I like lots of these options, but is this not what mods are for? I think we need to keep the DLCs to the main protagonists.

Re: AO 1939 scn tree is VERY controversial

While not the Emu wars, there are a couple of things from Australia that may amuse folks. First the Australian Army had to hire civilian sharp shooters a few years ago to cull Kangaroos that were overrunning the Puckapunyal training base in Victoria. Seems odd, as I thought that infantry were sharp ...

Re: Spanish Civil War Tank Parade Art by arseniquez

The best alternative history are the books Fatherland by Robert Harris with Germany and the US (under President Joe Kennedy) in a Cold War and Len Deighton's SS-GB (UK under German occupation). The movie and BBC TV series, respectively, are worth watching if you prefer. I have not seen nor read the ...

Re: SCW - Madrid rocks :)

Kerensky, I am curious did you ever contemplate running this like the other scenarios, that is with only the high level AI orders? While it is great to have control of them, it would be interesting to see just how crazy it could get without such control!

Re: Bug Reports

In Teruel with v1.01.05 the Spanish cavalry do not attack when ordered to. I have run several turns and the cavalry just sit there!

[EDIT] all fixed, turned out to be a cache issue as a result of the update.

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - v1.01.05 Update

In a save game of SCW there is no longer combat predictions moving units, either aircraft when you hover over a land unit or go adjacent to an enemy air units or a land unit when you go to move.

Re: Experimenting

While I think the number of I-16s is good for SCW as these should be special units and not the majority of your force.

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Axis Operations DLCs announced

The SCW DLC is nothing like the single scenario in PG3D. It is a very challenging and and exciting campaign and well worth the money. As stated earlier it is Panzer Corps and while playing as the Nazis is never palatable, the developers have put a great deal of time and energy into making this as hi...

Re: Axis Operations FAQ and Tips

The importance of the Italian auxiliary forces cannot be overstated. As Kerensky stated, in SCW these troops are beasts compared to what they are later in WW2. I used a combination of Italian cavalry and artillery in my campaigns, they were so important I tended to forget they were not core units an...

Thanks for validating that I made the correct decision when I chose the FM edition when I had the opportunity, but I need to ask - is there anything stopping you from buying a PzC2 DLC when it becomes available? Yes people can purchase the DLCs, it is the early access that they are unhappy about. I...

Re: Celebrating launch with Panzer Comics

I'll add my vote for more of the cartoons/user guides. Perhaps one showing the difference between the various infantry units or the effects of suppression on units.

Cheers

Re: price on steam is 20% lower than slitherine, why

Yeah in Australia the price for the Field Marshall edition is about the same on Steam as with my Beta tester discount. I wonder if this has more to do with exchange rates or Steam discounting to get the sale? Given the Aussie dollar has plummeted against the US dollar over the past few weeks (thanks...

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

What I would like to see is more of the smaller map scenarios (ie more DLC 39-41, Afrika Corps and Sea Lion) than the larger Eastern Front ones in the DLCs 42-45 and also keeping the scale of the units the same throughout the game. I can't remember who suggested this but the ability to deploy a cert...
