Re: Dev Diaries will resume soon

I see no reason why anyone would expect infantry to look bad, and I'm still reasonably certain the final result will be more than decent. :!: You should expect infantry to look bad in 3D because A) They are the size of cities and airports which looks ridiculous. In 2D there's a lot less realism and...

Re: Dev Diaries will resume soon

Perhaps it's best not to bother with more Dev Diaries, especially if your heart isn't in it or you don't have time. They tend to only get around 1,000 views anyways. A better way to generate interest would be to simply not have an NDA for the beta. That way we could discuss and share screenshots wi...

Yes they will. Beta has proved to be far more work than expected and is taking priority.

This is probably the best/only solution: https://www.macworld.co.uk/how-to/mac-software/dual-boot-mac-3659676/ I don't think I will have time to look into this in the near future but will do later Windows dual boot may not have a great future either with the switch to better performing ARM chips co...

Re: Which Scenario Would You Play Last?

I might have an idea. Does anyone know if it would be possible to run Panzer Corps Mac on a virtual box running Virtualbox or VMware? If so we could install an old(er) version of MacOS on the virtual box that you only use for Panzer Corps and you never upgrade it. Does anyone know if Panzer Corps M...

Re: Impossible Siege Video

Regarding comments about fighters and flak being triggered against air recon... remember, this is notionally an operational-level game. Recon plane units would represent squadrons of planes, dispersed across the front. We're talking either light artillery-spotter kinds of planes, or high-speed phot...

Hi guys,

Many of you have been wondering what's up with the dev diaries. The devs are fully focussing on getting the beta build ready, and once that's done they will have enough time to start working on dev diaries again.

So bear with us, the dev diaries stream will soon resume!
Oh will they?

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

The only place where my airpower seems to struggle is in Afrika Korps because I play with only purchased Italian units, so my airforce consists of a Beefed out Stormo Fighter. (The first Italian Fighter they give you which has 2 heroes that equal +5 Attack I think. He is a beast, so far.) 1 SE Bf-1...

Re: Which Scenario Would You Play Last?

Confirmed. From now on PzC will be very different for me. I can no longer play it, per se, but I can stare at this screen and meditate.

Re: Which Scenario Would You Play Last?

Kharkov and Prokhorovka are excellent suggestions for sure. In the end I decided to do US Corps 42 since it would fit within the time available. The last scenario I'll ever complete was Bizerte. I am not sure I would accept that... maybe you could get a cheap PC somewhere? In theory, I can still pla...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

Rudel is excellent as an 87G, which has good enough armor that he often doesn't need to be escorted. He can really mess up even the best Soviet tanks in that form. Now if you give him an Fw 190G his air attack is equal to a Me 262 (with a defense of 27, far higher than any fighter) while still reta...

Which Scenario Would You Play Last?

As a Mac user, this will be the last weekend I can play PzC. Although Slitherine is still accepting money for it as of today, the Mac PzC will not work on Macs with 10.15 or greater installed, which comes out Monday. Sure, I could not update my machine just to play this game, but the reality is that...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

The other thing might be to swap all tac bombers to fighter bombers (but maybe still with fighter escorts, if needed)... Rudel in a fighter bomber is rarely attacked I tried that in the west. Fight bombers aren't that great over there. Is Rudel worth being a fighter bomber? I don't mind escorting h...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

I follow the kind of approach described by Turtler - maybe two SPAA to escort spearheads, and one or two towed 88s or 128s to weaken enemy aircraft and to defend the main body. I can usually get away with 2 or 3 fighters but you do have to be careful to keep them away from the enemy AA. OK, interes...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

Before 44, I used 4-5 fighters and a mix of strategic and tac bombers. I usually knocked out their airforce and then attacked their ground units. All while avoided AAA. Now with the Sparkling great strength, I find it's hard or costly to venture out beyond my own lines. Almost every time I do I get...

Re: Your country needs you! Join the Beta for Panzer Corps 2!!!

After you agree to the NDA, the product specs question states "Device e.g. PC, Mac or iPad, CPU, RAM, operating system, graphic card, display resolution". That implies they are open to devices that aren't PCs, when in fact they are not. That text should be fixed to indicate that this is a PC game a...

I assume Mac and iPad users need not apply since these platforms are usually supported as an afterthought, but the link seems to imply that they can join the beta. Please fix.

Re: Best feature from the twitch stream?

;) Can you clarify how the surround feature actually works? Does a unit have to be in every passable hex, or just have zone of control over every passable hex, i.e. every second hex? Does the 'surrounded' indicator ever end up revealing unseen units (i.e. perhaps you are surrounded but you wouldn't...
