Re: Erik's custom campaigns

I'm impressed people manage to beat those campaigns. Maybe I ought to check out the replay... Have a feeling the real key is familiarity, losing over and over again until you've memorized exactly where and when and how much you'll be facing. Not sure how useful raf's advice is. There aren't enough ...

Re: Horse Transport

According to my impeccable knowledge of WWII my perhaps flawed understanding of many of the units in the war is that they readily had transport. Point is it peeves me how much it cost to have a truck or half-track associated with a unit - specifically if you are the German player and you assign 3 tr...

Re: Will there be an Order of Battle 2

It's always been really weird to me how the Falklands conflict is so utterly ignored by media such as television and especially movies. Apparently there are one or two films out there, but they're pretty tangental and mostly just dealing with PTSD and the aftermath. Like even the invasion of Grenad...

Re: Horse Transport

Seems like horses require a lot of maintenance but in the wild they require none or in other words they get none no shoes or hoof maintenance etc. or special food the big difference only being the lack of strenuous work ???

Re: Soviet OT-34 should be flamethrower (?)

A soviet brigade was mostly wiped out early in the war as they were fed only what they had which were beans and then they used this flame equipment in battle

I think that is why they made the game just to have a really cool briefing.

Panzer Strategy is actually worse than it looks because the units incessantly repeat the same loud and very obnoxious quotes. I refunded it.

Re: The PzC 2 storm is finally here.

I bought it, largely because I saw a developer post about how A) he's Russian and has creative control, so they're not going to do something as obscenely terrible as Soviet Corps again and B) that he wants to do way more (and way better) Allied content than PzC1 got. Given that the US Corps campaig...

Re: Strafing units with BF109

Strafing units with the BF109 can be somewhat helpful but tedious what ya can do is check all the attack value results of various units if you see a truck full of infantry or an arty unit not entrenched or as mentioned above we low efficiency units it can come in handy .... I always struggle between...

Re: Existing Campaign Question

Hey guys, quick question here. I'm just exploring around with the campaign editor. Is it possible to edit problems in an existing custom campaign? One of the scenarios in said campaign has a secondary objective counter that is defective. As an item is destroyed, the counter stays stuck on 0 and the...

Re: The PzC 2 storm is finally here.

The best thing to do is suppress ones emotions and go to a games forum site and there you get a great idea of what you are getting into the things the game lacks and the upgrades the game users are screaming about needing even though it was released you get a better feel of any headaches the game ha...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

This scenario has been tough to design. First there was the challenge of ensuring that the Soviet tanks would have a path of opportunity going up the road and that they would take it. When that was resolved, the situation flipped. Basically, Finnish infantry units at this time do not have the firep...

Re: Sandstorm - Tobruk: No attacking from top of cliffs?

So in other words, Order of Battle 2 when ;) I do like the ammunition / fuel aspect in Panzer Corps, although in a sense efficiency (which I initially had a hard time getting my head around) fills the same role. Likewise the penchant units have for retreating. At first it was annoying to never be a...
