Dumnorix -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (9/29/2012 11:25:11 AM)

Nice city views !
If you like it - I will join your team and spend my full unit packs for this addon.
I have much more and all on the same style.

H.Balck




Chris10 -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (9/29/2012 12:24:04 PM)

thnx guys...[:)]....its coming together little by little...




@Balck...thnx but there is nothing left to do...the framework of the game is almost finished and I wont start changing stuff around let alone changing the complete unit roster...




Chris10 -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (10/1/2012 3:12:37 PM)

FINALLY IRONED OUT THE FEW INCONSISTENCYS IN THE GERMAN UNIT ROSTER AND ADDED BEBROS PLANES AND A FEW OTHER THINGS WHICH WERE MISSING

Updated first post with final german unit roster




TR -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (10/2/2012 10:41:45 PM)

It looks like I'll have to reinstall this and play it. This looks very intriguing.




Chris10 -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (10/4/2012 2:39:30 PM)

thnx my friend..[:)]

PzC East comes as complete standalone folder..you only have to take a few files from vanilla PzC folder and copy them to PzC East (like the .exe for example)




demjansk -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (10/5/2012 9:14:12 PM)

Is this mod coming out soon?

when its done my friend...when its done [:D]
The amount of work involved here is hundreds of hours and its a one man project (at least when it comes to the core game).
The framework has been done and Iam in the process of setting up starting units for the Wehrmacht and Axis Minors...once finished I continue with the Red Army

No clue when its done but I will not rush only for the sake of releasing something...
I build it slowly but surely to assure high quality and a low bug count and sometimes I simply have to take a rest for a few days to recharge energy

NO rest allowed. We need this.

By Führer order, the 8th Army as part of Army Group North, has moved into her staging area around Memel.
Other Wehrmacht units will soon start deploying into their staging areas....


8th Army consists of the following units

Thanks, I just was wondering if the mod was out, very nice work and take your time, I don't know how some of you do this stuff, very pleasant surprise with this stuff, thanks again




Josh -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (10/8/2012 9:54:13 AM)

Well it's massive that's for sure, hope my pc can cope with that... and take a look at the strength numbers; 16 for the German infantry! I mean I'm already afraid of the Russian strength numbers [X(]

Its only the initial strength of Wehrmacht infantry divisions (which was 16.500 nominal strength) but you wont be able to reinforce them to 16...[:'(]




Josh -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (10/8/2012 2:18:43 PM)

Aha I see, ... so the next logical step (gamewise) would be to make these units ... how do you call it "divide-able" "splittable"? split them up in 2-3 pieces, like WitE has. Cover more ground but have less impact.

not exactly..the PzC engine is far to simple but each fighting division indeed is complemented by one support unit (Recon,Towed Arty,Towed AT or Flak) in order to represent different army branches.

Armor is generally apart and follows his own scaling scheme. Usually 2 units represent one Panzer Division (about 200 tanks = 100 tanks per unit) except german heavy tank and heavy anti tank regiments (1 Unit=aprox 50 vehilces)




Chris10 -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (10/8/2012 5:52:40 PM)

The OKH announces that complete Army Group North consisting of 18th Army, 3rd Panzer Group and 16th Army has moved into position now...3rd SS Totenkopf and various other OKH Reserves have moved into the rear areas, 207th,281th and 285th Security Divisions have occupied Königsberg and surroundings while other Divisions such as 4th SS Police Division and 86th Infantry Division are still intaking personel in order to reach their nominal strength...
Army Group Center is scheduled to take positions soon...all preparations proceed according the planned time table

OKH reports that after Army Group North, Army Group Center, consisting of Panzergroup 3, Panzergroup 2, 9th Army and 4th Army, has taken positions too. Reserves consisting of 10th Panzer Division, 2nd SS Das Reich, 2nd Army, 293th, 112th, 106th and 11th Infantry Divisions have moved into the rear areas....

Progressing nicely I see. Well done. I never ever would have thought that someday I would see PG/PC look like TOAW. It's almost as massive as the "Fire in the East" scenario for TOAW.

to be honest...only since I started placing the units on the map I truly realize how massive this really is...
and I wonder if my projected unit numbers may not be sufficient for the entire map...well..once I placed the entire axis forces,includung minors and air forces, I hope that I have a better overview




Chris10 -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (10/12/2012 10:27:57 PM)

May 1941...Army Group South deployment is in progress...
Panzer Group 1, 6th Army, 17th Army, the Slovakian Corps have moved into positions.
Army reserves consisting of 1st LSSAH, 13th Panzer Division, 97th,100,101th Mountain Divisions and 168th,16th,25th Infantry Divisions
have moved into the rear area...

Chris10 -> RE: Panzer Corps East - The struggle for Russia "Grand Strategy" (10/13/2012 10:05:13 PM)

Army Group south has completed deployment
3rd and 4 th Romanian Army have moved into positions too
Pending operations are the Hungarian Corps, Romanian, Slovakian, Croatian, Bulgarian and Hungarian stock units, Finnish Army Corps and Finnish stock units...German stock units (AA mostly) , German Baltic Fleet and Air Fleets and Air Forces will be placed last.


Oh..and just on a side note:
95+% of all Infantry and Tank Units have their real names and positions...
Overall about 90% of all ground units have their real names.
Rest 10% is owed to engine limitations to model more sophisticated unit compositions so I had to make use of artistic freedom

Splendid, I love it when there is at least some sort of historic resemblance, it adds to the gameflavour IMO.
I reckon this has 10 times as many units as the largest scenario in PC right?

hmmm...I would call 90+% a bit more than just "some sort of historic resemblance..." [:D]
If the engine would allow to model more sophisticated unit structures and different equipment per unit the number would be 100% but one has to deal with what he has
I dunno how big the biggest PzC scenario is....I havent played all DLC...I think there have been scenarios with 50-60 units in the late eastern camapign...
The one thing that is for sure though is that the map is 25 if not 30 times bigger than the average vanilla PzC Map...average map in PzC has between 2500-3000 hexes and this map has 77024 hexes...

Amazing! Will definitely give this a try when it comes out.

To Chris10 - very nice work!!
This is a great piece of work. Very appreciate it. I look forward to how the game will look like.
Do you have an approximate estimate of how long it takes a computer game?
O 2 World War I have been interested for many years and greatly appreciate your efforts.
Excuse my English.
Georg
