New video where we see a general summary of the mechanics of the game that comes to light at the end of January 2018:

Its ok for players to discuss games from other developers but we draw the line at promotional videos posted by the developers :)

"The neon hex outlines and neon shading on move areas further gets in the way - it just looks garish and unpleasant. Those kinds of colours might work for a future space-battle sort of game, but they don't fit the period"

--> +1 i hope they will fix that.

Exactly my same impressions! It looks like the early 3D FPS shooters - they were 3D, but...
It looks like Toy Soldiers, or a child room. At least in PzC 2D I could use my fantasy to add the additional world deails.
Company of Heroes, or even Blitzkrieg looks better... Not to mention the Combat Mission series, which have also a great, realistic battle gameplay on company/battalion level and have a real 3D world.

The turns need to be fast, watching explosions all the time will get old. I am a Panzer Corps can and it's good enough for me.

You've never once confirmed that Blitzkrieg is from another developer. For all we know these videos could be leaked Slitherine material, perhaps deliberately as a trial balloon to gauge just how much people would hate the crap that comes out of the Unreal engine without suffering the loss of prestige of having such crappy material associated with your business.

Of course if this isn't Slitherine's work, Slitherine could release some information showing that Slitherine's efforts are materially different. A screenshot or video showing a difference in style would work, or even just a verbal confirmation articulating a clear vision for PzC 2 other than what you've said so far- "It's 3D on the Unreal engine!"- and articulating that Slitherine knows the material in the videos is unacceptably bad and below anything Slitherine would deem acceptable.

ok to prove this isn't the board work, i'll lock the thread if you wish?

and if the forum administrators wish it to be re opened, then that's there choice, as it's from a outside and none site version of a none site game

as this isn't really the place to advertise other games from elsewhere, better to do it on there own forum and board

I give you the reason, the animation of explorations are very basic, and the movement seems to have improved that there will be an option to go slow or faster (and that's fine) as seen in the videos that come out.

Wow there. Nobody is "advertising" this game. We all agree that it's trash. We just want to get answers to two simple questions:

1) Is this PzC 2 in disguise, or are there really two teams both trying to implement Panzer General on the Unreal engine at the exact same time?

2) If PzC is different, will PzC 2 be any better? Unreal is Unreal after all.

no one will answer about games from elsewhere, if it carries on, the thread will be closed

I thought we'd made it pretty clear by telling the developer not to post his video and removing the link, but this game is nothing to do with us or anyone we work with or Panzer Corps. The people posting the information are the development team, which is why I warned them not to. Players can talk about other games in the general discussion forums, but developers cannot come and post about their games on our site :)

Hopefully that clear it up!

So you're saying that bcnkor is a rival developer who is working on this project? If so, he is doing himself no favors as the material he is posting reflects very badly on the quality of his efforts. Are you absolutely certain of this? For example, he isn't a beta tester or someone receiving the info from an inside source?

Overall I just hope you guys manage to make PzC 2 good. As these screenshots show, you can spend a lot of time in the Unreal engine and still end up with a bunch of sparkly glowy gaudy crap. He also shows that the temptation to mess around with stupid camera angles is irresistible, even though the only angle that matters on a board game is the god's eye view. Blitzkrieg is everything PzC 2 had better not be.

Im definitely not into this. For me, this tries to combine two elements that conflict in essence. A 3D environment asks for real-time strategy and fits a game like Company of Heroes, with units that can placed in cover, etc. It resembles the way one would experience a battle as seen through your own eyes, whereas a pure strategy game has a "God's" (overall) view. A 3D game which still has its battleground divided into hexes looks unrealistic, even more so with units that are faced in about every direction one can imagine (a feature less disturbing for me when looked up from above).
I dislike being conservative but this time I favor it... :-)

"A 3D environment asks for real-time strategy"
