panzer corps gold question

Post by wolfslair71 » Sun Oct 15, 2017 5:39 pm

was wondering if I could get some feedback from the community on this one. I have all of the panzer corps games including the expansions. is it worth buying panzer corps gold? are the improvements in gold enough to buy it when I have all the games already? thanks.

No. If you already have all the expansions and DLCs and have installed the latest patch, you already have the 'Gold' edition. If you bought it, the only difference would be that you would be out an additional $80. The Gold version is simply for those that are new to the game or only have a few of the expansions/DLCs and, as it includes all of these, it is a substantial savings over purchasing everything separately.

If you have installed the latest patch, you should see 'Gold Edition' and a gold stamp in the upper right corner of the Main Menu splash screen.

I had everything already when Panzer Corps Gold was released, but still bought it when it was on sale, about half price I think. Why? Well I install the game quite a lot as I swap about PCs and laptops. With the Gold edition you install one file with one serial number and that's it. Without Gold you have to install everything one at a time, each with its own serial number. I think Panzer Corps and all its downloads are amazing value for money so I didn't mind paying out that bit extra to save all the hassle when installing. Like most things, it's a matter of opinion :?

That is true, and I thought of mentioning ease of installation, but as the OP asked about the 'improvements in gold', I took his meaning to be the differences in game play so I left it out. In your case (Rubyjuno), and probably for many others, ease of installation is an important consideration and of obvious merit.

thank you for the feedback. I went ahead and downloaded the latest patch and I now have the gold stamp on the main menu. one question though, In the description for the gold edition it mentioned mods from the community being available. with order of battle(I have all editions of that game) there is access to a list of custom mods right on the main menu. is there anything like that with panzer corps?

Unfortunately, that is not a feature of Panzer Corps and you have to go get them yourself. Look in the Panzer Corps: Scenario Design forum page, then check out the lists in the 'Stickies' section.

If you will visit the Scenario Design section of the Panzer Corps Forum, you will find all of the mods that you may be looking for and help to find them and how to use them with the game. Some of the best parts of enjoying Panzer Corps is found with the mods.
Old Timer Panzer General fan. Maybe a Volksturm soldier now. Did they let Volksturm drive Panzers?
