Re: Air units in PC2

2. To everyone: How can we make more sorts of air units valuable without adding complexity or clutter? One approach would be to introduce layers of altitude. This could be a simple as "high" and "low." Different types of aircraft within and across unit classes would differ in performance at high an...

Post-Kriegsmarine(?) Boot Camp glitch

I just resumed playing OOB after a long absence, just after the appearance of Kriegsmarine and its accompanying update. Because I hadn't played the game in a while, I replayed Boot Camp. When I arrived at the third (naval) scenario, I encountered a glitch: during the deployment phase, I could not de...

Re: Uncle HS’s suggestions for Panzer Corps II

You could also make them more difficult to spot, thus giving more opportunity for ambush. Spotting in general is a good candidate for significant rethinking of game mechanics.

Re: Ipad...

The tricky part of an iPad port is the mouseover effect. I play Panzer very often on a HP Spectre with my fingers, but I found out I needed the keyboard to be able to see all the stats when moving. There would need to be a more complex UI to make up for the lack of mouse I think. But it could be do...

Re: Ipad...

Please please please roll out an iPad version as quickly as possible. I don't know how large of a segment of the market I represent, but I stopped playing (and stopped purchasing expansions of) OOB once it became clear that it would not be ported to iPad, and I no longer purchase any games that cann...

Re: What kind of units are useless in game ?

The only subtype that I never use is (you guessed it) towed AT. AT would be more useful (and IMHO more accurately modeled) if it provided defensive fire to other units attacked by tanks. That would make it easier to draw armor into an AT ambush, which after all was a very popular tactic in real life...

Seriously, if I could change only one thing, I would like to be able to install and play community mods and campaigns on my iPad. That's my Number One Ask for PzC II, should there ever be such a thing.

Re: Started 1944/1945 Campaign

This is indeed a tough scenario. If memory serves, the trick is to circle the wagons as quickly and tightly as possible, using the rivers as defensive perimeters, but without losing access to at least one airfield. Defensive fire from artillery and AA is vital.

Re: New to series Question(s)

So is it better to start with West then go to East? I think East makes more sense for a first play-through, as the transitions from one year to another are not so dramatic. but then they are really slow! I am not certain I could DV in the GC with that slow of troops. Any tips? You will not need hal...

That's a great discovery! This must be a new feature for 1.30. Very handy indeed!

Re: AK: Italian challenge.

Just finished the Italian Challenge on General with a decisive victory in India. It was not as difficult as I had anticipated, largely because I was able to field mostly German armor, even without purchasing any. The biggest difference was the need to field exclusively Italian infantry. (The initial...

Re: Soft Cap on iPad

Answers to the best of my knowledge (applies only to iPad): (1) Nowhere, at least not directly. To find out what impact the soft cap currently has on your prestige awards, capture a flagged non-victory hex and see how much prestige you gain. Divide that number by 50. The result is the percentage of ...

Re: AK: Italian challenge.

Many thanks for the speedy clarification! I inferred from the earlier discussion that captured > German equipment was "challenge compliant," but I wasn't sure. I am finding this great fun so far.

Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I just started the "Italian Challenge" on my iPad (not Steam), and I am curious about one not-entirely-answered question asked above: Is it consistent with the "challenge rules" to upgrade captured Allied equipment to German equipment? As noted above, it is no...
