Re: Post 103c Patch news?

I would not say Stellaris has fallen on its face. And GreenManGaming is still selling it for $30, which is a very fair price. I have modded Polaris and played it two weeks straight. You really do need to keep track of your ships, tankers, transports, so fighting a 2-3 war front can involve some micr...

Re: The future of FoG

A quick aside - I have found a good Wargamer review of HPS AW RCW for those who have not bought: http://www.wargamer.com/reviews/roman-civil-wars/ Now back to Don's questions: Has anyone heard any rumors on future plans for Napoleonics / Frederick the Great era development? Is it more likely to be s...

Re: the tactical AI.

Matrix is better than most at upgrading. There are only a few games they have left hung to dry. So there is hope, as it really is one of the best 4x space games right now.

Re: The future of FoG

I have scratched the surface of Pike & Shot. Great AI. But the upcoming Japanese game, the unit names and types will not stick with me, which hurts the immersion.

Re: The future of FoG

Yes, AW does have it all. I downloaded the tutorial demo from the HPS patches page to try the latest version. I have the 2nd and 3rd games on discs. To play the game properly requires a lot of micromanagement. I am okay with Panzer Campaigns and Squad Battles, but AW pushes the envelope for me. A po...

Re: How's the scenario design for OOB Marine?

It is true that history ties the hands of the scenario designer. The Marine campaign was an island slug fest, and that's what we got. Unfortunately, these island battles are rather similar. Hammering away at defenses again and again can get rather tedious (for some). But God help the scenario design...

Re: How's the scenario design for OOB Marine?

Well, they are cranking out the Winter War DLC pretty quick. Maybe they will put some time into better scenario design. The editors and csv file modding are outstanding in both PzC and OOB. I applaud the devs for this. But I also find better scenarios/campaigns from the modders. Hate to repeat this ...

Re: The future of FoG

Interesting to get feedback from a new player. Like many others, I invested significant cash in FoG and all but two expansions. Of course, it's all probably cheaper now for an older game. Just be sure you know what you are getting with that HPS system. If you did get it, I would be surprised or like...

Re: the tactical AI.

I was happy to see the Urgans overwhelm my technologically superior Cruisers and Destroyers with clouds of fighters, gunboats, etc. I have boson guns but now need to build some air superiority strength with carriers. At least there is a semblance of strategy in a game that offers a lot more than tac...

Re: Peleliu how do you win

That's why I was a bit concerned, as it's a lot easier to program a defensive AI, and there have been questions on AI competency. I played one of the original MP scenarios (forgot which one) versus a friend, and it was an awesome experience. I haven't gotten that in SP games, but I guess that's to b...

After reading some Steam posts, I better master what I have now, as new scenarios seem pretty tricky to win.

Re: Peleliu how do you win

Sounds pretty tedious to me, which is why I've held off on the latest expansion. Great game, mind you. But like Panzer Corps, I think the devs need to be at least as creative as the modders when knocking out these expansions. History is history, but 11 island slugfests do not appeal. I would hope at...

Re: micromanagement?

It's a great game compared to the boredom that is GalCiv3. Unless the DLC made that game better. What's nice about PS is that it is detailed, but the interface screens are well designed. You do have to load fighters/interceptors manually and keep a close eye on the FEBA to ensure a good defense. How...

If you have Panzer Corps and would like to see how a DLC can be done, check out the link below. Even the broken English in the briefings adds atmosphere. This is the first time I may actually finish a campaign, and am curious how the official Soviet Corps add-on will compare to this stellar effort b...

Re: updates?

We can't block Steam from automatically upgrading our modded games. My plan is to install a new game via Matrix exe and copy my entire modded game folder over it. Modding is still a bit tricky. Please let me know if you think this is the best solution so I can continue playing my old modded game. Th...

I've had some trouble reloading save files with my modded game. But if I mess with task manager, back and forth, it eventually loads up.
