Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

I hope you can see that I have the whole Red Army surrounded, yet that one gigantic encirclement I am looking for seems to elude me. I have enabled the hex grid. Can somebody spot the mistake here? Thanks. Yes, you have three gaps in the line that need to be closed -- the southern road out of Kiev ...

...and another one.
@devs: Please let me automatically have a low res screenshot for uploading. It is a bit annoying crunching them myself. Would be a cool functionality.

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

Can you post some screen shots showing your encirclement? one thing to bear in mind is that there is a supply hex or 2 on cities in the eastern part of the map. Sure. And I took all supply hexes on the whole map. Either I cant see the forest for the trees here (quite possible) or this is a bug. Eit...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

Kiev is one of the easiest maps in the campaign in which to enact a grand encirclement; you have plenty of auxiliaries to use and the terrain favours the Germans (major rivers and thick forests are both impassable for supply trucks). Okay, I restarted from scratch. Again, around turn 10 I hold all ...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

I'll have to pick up OOB at some point - looks interesting Base game is free, DLCs have a discount right now, especially the older ones. I recommend the three Wehrmacht campaigns as a start. Also, our own master extraordinaire Erik ports all Panzercorps 1 campaigns to OoB for free. And there are qu...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

Can someone please explain to me why all enemy units are not encircled? There is no path to a supply hex as I control all of the map. Does border of the map act as a supply hex too? Yup you answered your own question. Border supply. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VpeMgWR_Mk&feature=emb_title Okay...

Re: Feel the Wheel of Steel: Red Steel Review and Discuss

Okay, I pushed the Wehrmacht across the Crimea, but not all the way. This is a neat and fast mission if you keep the multiple objectives in mind. Deploy two fighters and a tacbomber IL 2 in the south, let them head towards the three bombardment targets. The destroyers move there as well. There some ...

Re: Feel the Wheel of Steel: Red Steel Review and Discuss

Its possible to change the german Infantry uniform skins in African scenarios yet to a more desert camo ? In Panzer Corps 2 it looks so amazing ! Or its possible to replace the skin textures diectly in an mod subfolder ? That would be realy better and easier for the modding community. Okay, Otto65 ...

Re: Feel the Wheel of Steel: Red Steel Review and Discuss

Okay, I went for a snowy hike, too. However, I did not deploy any tanks and relied on my snowshoe warriors instead. Even had eight army CP to spare I did not need. And finished in 22 turns. This mission is less about quick advances, I feel, but rather about systematically advancing under AT cover an...

Alright, I chased the Wehrmacht off towards Rhzev, too. And I got those tanks taken out as well, yeah. Soviet steamroller for the win. I'll post my deployment below. Note that I use a Red Steel core and so I have the heavy mortars at my disposal. To get those 3 vehicles before turn 5 is over, focus ...

Alright, guys: It took some time in beta, but right now the Wheel of Steel is here to keel, uhm, kill. :wink: The Red Army rumbles over the battlefield again. It is not the sleekest formation, more like a drunkard with a butcher's cleaver facing a fencer with a rapier. Meaning: This will get messy. ...

Re: The PzC 2 storm is finally here.

What I _do_ know for sure is that neither game needs a pissing match between fans. This is a small ecosystem producing games in a genre that spent a long time dead, it'd be better if everyone got along and enjoyed having two options instead of the none we had for a very long time. Absolutely. I bou...

Re: The PzC 2 storm is finally here.

I should look over there and see if there is a PzC mod community; ostensibly, if there is one, there will be one for PzC 2. I just want to avoid temptation - I am fully engaged here and if I get involved with PzC 2, it will dilute my efforts with both games. Besides, then I would be living with all...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - $69.95 at launch

But the issue is, a lot of people won’t pay $70 for that game. I could buy 2 to 5 other games that would provide the same entertainment for a fraction of the price. How do we know the quality of these DLCs? How do we know we want those DLCs? That is something I like about OoB. You can see and play ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - $69.95 at launch

I agree that 70 bucks seems a lot. But think about the hours and hours of fun you can have. My bet is that you can easily play 70 hours of Panzercorps 2. Probably a lot more including multiplayer, mods etc. Most likely, you will pay less than a buck for premium entertainment per hour. Sounds like a ...
