2. selected unit should show up as a bolded hex (just like panzer general) or if you want something else a semi-transparent green hex. (that should turn red if the unit has made it's move) 3. the maps look much better in panzer general. why can't panzer corp improve on that? right now they look kin...

I said I was kidding, just adding a little humor. :P The devs have gone to great pains to make the impression that the graphics for the units are not 'poor'. Believe me, I'll tried to get them to budge on this topic, you'll see that in some of the other art threads floating around here. I wouldn't s...

We did not always excluded rare units from the list, gameplay implications were also important for us. For example, Sturmpanzer I was not a wide spread unit, but we felt that giving it to the player will be very nice to increase the number of arty options in the early game. On the other hand, it wa...

Panzer Commander says: http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/8561/74964119.jpg Just kidding. :P Seriously though, I run at 1680x1050 resolution, and I don't have black bars except for the un-stretched mini-map.

We need a model that is fun, logical and balanced. Right now it just doesnt work for me. Air power is too extreme - either lethal or ineffective. Air defence units are impenetrable bunkers. It just all feels wrong and most new players will be very frustrated by it. This is pretty well said, I'm sur...

About the units, I like the idea of small labels to indicate unit's type. Or shall it be name? My own preference is also to use small stylized icons for units, looks like we agree on this one. Any more opinions on this? I feel that name is unnecessary, and in a game like Panzer Corp, could get very...

Layout of purchase screen attempts to follow the flow of actions: you start with filters which limit your selection (flags, classes, in come respect prestige and slots as well), then you select your unit, then you check its stats, then you confirm purchase. So, the elements involved in this process...

Re: Build 0.91

Nope, I've never seen this one. I wonder if it is really related to the bridging ability? Can you try to remove "beng" trait from Data/equipment.pzdat file and see if the issue still happens? (If you are not sure how to remove that trait, I could send you modified file.) I left a suggestion for you...

Air defence units are far too good versus ground units. I sometimes find it hard to find anythign that can take them on. They should be very ineffective against ground units, especially infantry. Currently a good tactic is to build air defence units and move them steadily forawrds with artillery su...

Now I see why you want full resupply. :) Yes, but I want it as a cure to the symptom of a problem I see in the game, not as a cure for the disease that is truly responsible. The disease being your primary opponent in the game is Weather, Supply, and Time, and not your opponent. Well, producing 3D m...

It may be better for a separate thread for discussion, but I'll just start here and see what other people think and how you devs feel. We'll think how to make this scen feeling more right. On one hand the soviets were disorganized and unprepared in thiws battle, on the other hand, they did lose quit...

If a player makes a conscious decision to take a risk and enter fog of war blindly, opting to either not buy recon units or send them elsewhere, they deserve whatever they have coming. There's a reason you just don't send exhausted, battle weary, and expensive tanks down a narrow city street all by ...

By the way, not a game bug, but I just realized I can post new threads as stickies (I used this thread as an example, this topic is not worthy of a sticky). I don't think I should be able to do that.

Ambush Behavior

Indeed, the game does not trigger ambush if defending unit cannot attack our unit in the first place. This allows many weaker units (with zero or very small attack ratings) to void combat. Otherwise, ambushes could be exploited to have 2 attacks per turn: you do a normal attack, then move to a hex ...

I also noticed the soviet air stacking issue, they aren't invisible, just not aligned to sit above the unit. Added to bug thread. It seems to me the first Soviet Scenario is balanced with the idea that you started a campaign from Poland 1939. I entered the scenario with an airforce of SIX 2-3 star 1...

Considering how slow it moves, how little fuel and ammo reserves it has, how expensive it is (3400!), and how strong this artillery unit is (60 soft attack!) this is just insulting. http://img860.imageshack.us/img860/7894/artyfail.jpg Something, and perhaps more than one thing, about this needs to c...

32. Units with less than 30 fuel cannot utilize full train movement. (unsolved) Rail transport does not use fuel, but units with limited fuel totals suffer from movement restrictions. http://img638.imageshack.us/img638/1720/trainki.jpg 33.
