Re: Panzer Corp 1 vs 2?

That is why I was looking for rotation. I think the view angle is maybe problematic. Under that view angle I'd barely differentiate a VW Caddy vs Golf. In PC1 it was much more clear. I also increased a bit the size of units. As for diff. camo, ok I can use it - but then my army looks like bunch of ...

Re: PC2 slow and laggy

I had similar issues with Panzer Corps 2 on my new gaming laptop, and it has an RTX 2070 GPU. My solution is inline with what fluffybunny has said: Going into the game's video/graphics settings and making adjustments cleared it right up, especially the 30 FPS issue. I suspect they made that the def...

Re: iPAD Version

Would Ipads even have the juice to run this? Absolutely they would... if it ran natively on them (i.e. used Apple's Metal graphics API). iPad CPUs are excellent and outperform most PCs. However, that could all go out the window if Slitherine has to rely on Unreal and Unreal didn't do a good job por...

Re: For Goodness Sake Release the Game

Comparing the marketing/management of Panzer Corps 2 to different failing (?) movie franchises, and that they are "disrespecting the fanbase" is just ridiculous. It's such a hyperbole statement that has it's roots in 4chan, RPG Codex, et al. They are doing the best they can, both regarding creating...

Re: For Goodness Sake Release the Game

- Why wouldn't they emphasize the 3D engine early on? It's one of the key features and much easier to show off than gameplay, which might not even have been finalized at that time. If 3D is your key feature you've already lost. This has been explained numerous times. Games are about gameplay, full ...

For Goodness Sake Release the Game

Throughout this process, Slitherine has shown questionable judgement in marketing the game. They initially announced it with a Wargamer interview that was full of major errors. They emphasized 3D over gameplay. They put beta testers under NDA. They let an ignoramus YouTuber be the first to post a vi...

Re: PACIFIC GENERAL for PZc 2

Yeah, I wasn't suggesting the problem could be overcome by randomization, especially for naval combat. Foreknowledge is a bigger problem for the navy than land battles because naval battles take place at range. Whereas in land battles even if you know what your enemy has, you still have to fight the...

Re: PACIFIC GENERAL for PZc 2

Personally, I found Pacific General quite dull. The dense jungle makes for a quite static gameplay. Sure, you had the island invasions and stuff, but the ground combat was to a great extent an infantry meat grinder. Of all the possible DLC options for Panzer Corps 2, I'd put the Pacific theatre at ...

How is this even remotely relevant to Steam? They charge a cut in exchange for helping to bring in customers and taking payments. If you don't think its worth it, you don't have to use Steam.

Re: Maps seem a bit flat

A press review build that isn't youtube friendly seems a curious choice given that all the press reviewers posted their gameplays on youtube. Where did I say it wasn't Youtube friendly? All I said was that the details had been compressed out by Youtube. Nothing we can do about that. It's also depen...

Re: Graphics options in Pz2?

Afaik no option to make it look like old PC. I get where this is coming from. I was very skeptical of the graphics, but after playing a while I quite like the new look. Confusing and bizarre at first but you get used to it "after playing a while" is a problematic state. Many prospective buyers will...

Right, but even a humble peasant is still allowed to have an opinion in our society (assuming you live in a democracy, you could be Russian for all I know I guess). So what are your thoughts on Mr. YouTube's play through?

Re: Germans always lose

In PC 1 Germans always end up retreating back to Germany. I found this despite getting a small win at Stalingrad. Does this still happen in PC 2 or can Germany actually win the war. If not, then what is the point of this game. Yes, in Panzer Corps 2 the germans can win the war. But then again, in P...

Re: If the German’s had won at the Bulge,,,,,,

what was the point? You could ask this question of any and all German actions during WW2. The British empire was invulnerable as its navy was massively superior to the German one and its economy was far larger. Throw in the USSR and the USA and the Allied economy was several times larger.

Re: Apollo and Briefings

I liked those briefings myself, they feel like a nice detail for both immersion and fun. Of course, I like both reading and military history... but doesn't the whole target audience of PzC2 like those, too?.. And that Apollo dude... let's just not defile this forums by discussing his way of playing...

Re: Any decent youtubers previewing PzC2?

I'm being corrected. Apparently Apollo was NOT playing on DEFAULT difficulty, he was playing on the lowest difficulty setting. So that explains a lot of why he was successful even with tactics that you found to be practically offensive. My mistake. I'm fine with the default being pretty easy, but w...

Re: Maps seem a bit flat

That's unavoidable. It's a consequence of using 3D. In 2D, your mind just suspends disbelief. In 3D, your mind asks why the mountains are flat, why the tanks are bigger than submarines, and so on. The icky feeling of 3D is why the 3D movie fad ended- it's been years since I've had to don the 3D glas...
