Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

I understand why people also want smarter and more challenging AI, but I have to be devil's advocate here and say that isn't really conductive to long campaigns, especially not Grand Campaign long. If you play chess and trade down pieces the entire game and win with 3 pieces left against 1 enemy......

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Hopefully The A.I. is some faster in Panzer Corps 2 - Order of Battle, Panzer Corps and also Strategic Command arent playable - to much waiting between turns. In other modern wargames you have to wait only 1-2 minutes. In OoB and Strategic Command it takes sometimes 20-30 min ! I think the devs hav...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

On the topic of the AI attacking: well, as an example... I think there is still a small problem when you are in an entrenched position (maybe with artillery in the back or maybe even surrounded by AI troops at Manstein strength) and none of the AI units that are facing you is attacking you because ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

In the past 5 years I guess I played the PC Vanilla, DLC's and PK numerous times - and have only recently started the Soviet Corps Campaign. What I thought strange sometimes, was the fact that German defensive scenarios (beating off Russian attacks) in fact gave victory when gaining ground instead ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Steven J Zaloga has written some interesting "Tank vs. Tank" books, including the T34, Sherman and Panther, with similar interesting outcome - for me at least.

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Proline, I have a number of solid and reasonable facts and arguments etc. to counter your remarks you mentioned regarding infantry against capital ships, however I refrain of such, since I find from your remarks from the very first sentence below standard and personal. I dont want to be included in ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Please remove the silly possibility of an infantry unit of damaging a capital ship. It always amazes me how often the "I want it realistic" crowd actually doesn't know what is realistic. Often it comes down to a lack of imagination- picturing an infantry unit as a couple boys with rifles instead of...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Please remove the silly possibility of an infantry unit of damaging a capital ship. And you could read about the capture of the dutch fleet at Den Helder in which a cavalry charge captured 14 ships (it's possible to stand on water depending on the conditions, again that's where lack of imagination ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

Repairing a wounded capital ship takes way more expenses, manpower and materials than in case of other units. Hoe would this be calculated in comparison? What amount of prestige would this take? Also: what I always thought strange in PC1 is that sinking a ship gives low experience points for a bombe...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

all ships with historical name... Graf Spee, Tirpitz, Hood, Duke York, Oktyaberskaya Revolutsya (like in Leningrad 41)... Supporting this remark - PC has capital ships mentioned as "battleship" without a proper and unique name, which also means that when it sinks in one scenario, it cannot return i...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #8

In scenarios focused on naval warfare, ships can be purchased, upgraded and repaired in ports and can capture neutral and enemy ports. Please allow one more thought: in reality, building and/or repairing ships takes/took some time, even for nations like the US, not sure how this can be considered, ...

Captured units / heroes Russian Campaign

I know there is a list of captured units / heroes for the German Campaign / Afrika Korps here (viewtopic.php?f=121&t=39382), but is there a similar list for the Russian Campaign?

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Christmas special! Dev Diary #7

Another request: PC has a wonderful chart showing the upgrades possible and at what date - dont know who made it, but thanks, I have used it many times... :-) Since you only linked to the German one, I take it you have never used the ones for the other nations? You poor deprived man. Here's the Ita...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Christmas special! Dev Diary #7

I am both anxious as a little sceptical about the PC2 changes. Anxious about a new development dating back to the Panzer General based games - admirer and (too much time consuming) gamer/fan since. PG and PC have always suited my quest and need for a WW2 turnbased game. Sometimes it feels difficult ...
