Erik Rutins -> Screenshot of the day... (8/17/2010 8:00:52 PM)

We'll aim to put a new screenshot up here every day, either from me or someone else on the development team.

There are also some more videos on the way and of course we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Here's a picture of a peaceful Russian village from the beginning of a randomly generated test battle today. The map is called "Merefa" by our team member who has the handle "Benpark" here on the forums.

We can press and hold the Alt key. Now the HUD, floating icons and rubberbands are removed until we release. Great for screenshots and videos.

Ever wish for gridded terrain? Press the Delete key to turn it on and off.

Here's one of my favorites.

Here's a little sequence of screenshots showing off a couple of new features. This is from the "Assault of the 169th" scenario some of you may be familiar with from Kharkov, but I would bet you never took out one of those bothersome Pak 38s like this before! If you have a spare tank, this works pretty well. [8D]

Number 2...

Scratch one T-34, the PaK 38 crew now has another problem though...

Erik Rutins -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/18/2010 9:54:00 PM)

The edges of the gun pit barely slow the T-34 down. You can't see from this picture, but it's barrelling in at full speed. I set it a Charge course with waypoints to come around the flank of the gun pit while the other two T-34s approached from the front. Yes, there are other ways to take out an AT gun, but this is one of them. [:)]

Erik Rutins -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/18/2010 9:58:27 PM)

The gun crew was turning the gun, but they couldn't swing it around in time. Note also that not all destroyed tanks explode now and we've got some improved special effects for those that do. But an AT gun overrun by a Tank ends to have a bad day. On this map, there are some anti-tank mines between the Soviet tanks and the German AT guns, but I managed to get through without serious problems.

Erik Rutins -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/18/2010 10:00:47 PM)

Boom.

I took the other PaK 38 out with artillery, which cost me fewer tanks (lost 3 T-34s to this one in total - one right when it opened up on me and the other two during the Charge), but this was more fun. [;)]

Next!

Erik Rutins -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/18/2010 10:04:26 PM)

I should note again that last sequence was on one of the older maps and scenarios, though it has been updated and works fine with Panzer Command: Ostfront. The maps still look good, but if you compare that one to the first screenshot I posted you can also see how much nicer the new maps can be.




Erik Rutins -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/18/2010 10:15:43 PM)

... here's one more, this time from a new map called Sopolnya, also by Benpark.

[:D]

Looks like what I feel like doing in traffic sometimes.




Stridor -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/19/2010 2:19:58 AM)

Erik,

Just a heads up, these huge SS you are posting are bmps straight from the game and consume a huge amount of bandwidth. Could you please convert them into jpgs in the future.

Thanks

S.

I wondered why I was having trouble loading the images in this thread.

Thanks

That's odd - I did specifically convert them to JPGs and post those instead. Let me double check.




Erik Rutins -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/19/2010 2:32:56 AM)

All fixed, uploaded from the wrong folder! [:o]




junk2drive -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/19/2010 1:57:50 PM)

I'm being harassed by a pesky ATG. Where is it?

I press the ' key...

junk2drive -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/19/2010 2:00:40 PM)

Still not big enough? Press ' again

The / key reduces the units back to normal

junk2drive -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/19/2010 2:04:09 PM)

When I target the enemy unit, I can place the end of the target line on the unit or the floating icon to see range, chance to kill, and finally click to give the order.




Mad Russian -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/20/2010 3:49:32 AM)

That old tree. Accounts of the fighting in the Ukraine is full of references to the vast sunflower fields. Here you are moving through the wheat fields and towards that giant oak on the hill.

That old oak just happens to be sitting in the middle of a giant sunflower field.

Good Hunting.

Mobius -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/20/2010 6:22:16 AM)

Anyone want to guess what this unit might be?

Erik Rutins -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/20/2010 1:36:59 PM)

Oooh, nice one Mobius. [8D]




Erik Rutins -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/20/2010 2:38:10 PM)

A little Kursk action...

One more...

NefariousKoel -> RE: Screenshot of the day... (8/20/2010 5:52:44 PM)

So will we be able to make the combat message log less verbose?  Or, better yet, adjust it's size to take up less screen space?

It seems like it's taking up a lot of area. [X(]

I just checked Eriks screens and the answer to your question is yes. the Message log is very configurable. Erik has his toggled to show more information. you can toggle the msg log box to pretty large (larger than you see in shots), but also to make it smaller - basicly small enough to just show the four button controls. OR you can toggle it entirely off.

Thanks
rick
