Re: AKRebels New PzCorps Units - Vehicles

These are really good. Who'd have thought that Panzer 1's could be interesting!

Help with transports

I have two questions about transports. I know there answersbecause they are used in the game but can't make them work when creating scenarios. Any help would be appreciated First question. I know that transports are allocated in the scenario editor but how do I allocate more than one type of transpo...

Re: Guille's PzCorps Support Base - Multipurpose Icons and more.

Hi Guille, Your work is always good to look at. My modding is very slow, but one day your home guard will be holding out against a post-Dunkirk seaborne raid, and hoping that the Vickers Mediums (which I adapted from some internet photos) get there in time to throw the invaders back into the sea. Ca...

Re: Ådd units

Nice icons. I particularly like the Lorraines.

In case you're looking for inspiration, I'm working on a scenario with a Vickers Medium.

Re: People's General, Space General etc

Panzer Corps has shown that revised versions of older games can be successful, especially if they can capture the flavour of the originals. Fantasy General wouldn't play on my last few PCs but a few weeks ago I stumbled across a version of Fantasy General that works on my current PC. I was just star...

Re: How to use 8.8cm FlaK 36 to best effect?

The mobile +towed large calibre pair works well for US and Germans forces. The SPAA can protect mobile froces while the heavy towed gun mainly weakens fighters and overstrength bombers. Can't beat a taking 10 off an enemt tac bomber when it attacks a unit guarded by a 3 or 4* AA.

Semi historical attempt

I thought I'd have a go with a semi historical force. I was using Nico's modified DLCs and equipment file - I use a few tweaks - Somua S35 has HA8 which makes it useful as a captured unit into at least 41, horse transport has move 4, and I extended the range of the Do17 by 20 (it outranged the 109s ...

Re: Grand Campaign question

The early partss of the West campaign involve small forces and and defence against multiple dispersed attackes, so you'll be doing a lot of running around with little time to resupply, so the mix of forces (and preferred heroes) is likely to be very different from what you would want in the Eastern ...

Re: SUPER GREAT NEWS I AM ON YOUTUBE

Shermans get a raw deal on both defence and attack in Panzer Corps GD is the same as the Somua S35 (even though the most basic Sherman had better armour) and the HA is hardly better than the short German 75mm and old Russian 76mm, which doesn't look reasonable to me. This makes a historic compositio...

Re: Can you help me with the scenario editor

Patrol and random patrol are both useful in their won right in larger maps to cover a reasonably large area with a couple of cavalry, scout cars or light tanks (or light AT guns with no transport), which is useful on a tempting route for a flank attack, where you either slow down and scout or risk a...

Re: How to use 8.8cm FlaK 36 to best effect?

I've just started a run through based mainly on Nico's mod but with AT having +3 init for towed guns and +2 for SPAT because they usually got in the first shot on tanks if deployed properly. Half way through Poland I'm thinking maybe +2/+2 might be better. Anyway, StuccoFresco's idea to make AT arti...

Re: Units change sides

It's a bit late for you as you've already done the hard work, but Soviet Corps Romania scenario has Romanians switching sides and one of the Sealion ones had Vichy French units switching sides so you could have copied the scripts on those (though it doesn't always help me as sometimes the scripts do...

Re: Role of Converted Tank Engineering Vehicles

One option is to make it a kangaroo-type armoured transport for the exclusive use of pioneers but give it Beng trait as well so it can also act as a bridge tank. Option B would be to create a special pioneer unit that can switch to a bridge tank. To avoid an entire army of tank-borne pioneers, you c...

Re: Campaign Play Order

Equipment restrictions can provide a good challenge - maybe one upgrade per scenario, or try to stick with a reasonably historic mix (France with mostly panzer 2s is quite interesting). Apart from avoiding the temptation to play the overstrength Tiger steamroller, it can be a good way to improve you...

Re: Campaign Play Order

For overall challenge, you have a few options : put up the difficulty level to General or Field Marshall ; maybe try using the slider controls to restrict prestige (probably 70 or 80% would be tough but still OK); or add a point or two of strength to the enemy. There's some AARs that should give you...

Within the editor, select the unit using shift+mouse click. The screen displayed allows you to rename the unit (in the top most box) as well as setting triggers for deployment, change it from aux/core/status etc. Once a unit has been named in the editor, it keeps that name even if when playing you u...

Infantry - probably British HW early war (like grenadiers but 6 ammo not 5). Late war Wehr 43 or SE grenadiers. Tank - Early - Matilda. Later Churchill flametank. 140RoF, decent armour OK attack and very good CD. Recon - Early LRDG or Sahariana for the versatility. Later the 8rad with 50mm gun or th...
