Set during in Pacific theater of WW2, Order of Battle: Pacific features playable campaigns for both the US-led Allies and the Japanese Empire.

Actualy we have it running on Mac so it may well be included in the beta in a few weeks. It's more a matter of restricting error reports to one platform at a time during the initial stages of the beta.

really interesting to check supplies and campaign step.
very scare about naval fighting and damaged ship if they going to repair instantly after battle or need time depend on damage.

Can you tell me what sort of minimum playing time requirement you would expect?

Thanks

Hard to say, as long as it results in some sort of feedback it's useful to us. Even if it's only a single post with general impression of the game.

The engine supports a range of settings, from fully animated 3D to boardgame style 2D. We're also thinking of adding another variation to display NATO class icons + unit type names on the counters instead of the unit icons. It's easy enough from an art point of view.

Some screenshots below (WORK IN PROGRESS).

Wow, I usually prefer 3D icons, but those counters look fantastic also. Looks like there is room for even more info on them, maybe even a leader picture.

Yes please, I like that option. I also think the boardgame style counters look nice.
