Firstly, I want to thank all the people who have worked on this game engine. It is fun to play and has provided many hours of entertainment.

All that said, I want more from this game! Unfortunately, we do not have it. I don't know what direction it's going, - updates are announced and then we wait and wait and wait.
How will a new engine represent infantry - nobody knows.
What about higher level command control - nobody knows.
What this game needs is for Matrix to prioritize this game engine and put somebody incharge to move it along and harness the great creative talents of the many people who work with this engine.

How about it Matrix, who is in charge of this game engine and what's the game plan.

Good question.

What's the game plan?

Good Hunting.

Since there has been no response whatsoever, I'd assume there is no game plan. Game over.

With Matrix silence doesn't really mean anything one way or the other. Remember how long it took for the last update? So long it went from being a PCK patch to being PCO.

There was little to no comments during that period as well.

Good Hunting.

Is there not someone that is actually steering the horse and buggy as far as this series is concerned? I know the game has many people involved at various levels, but is there not someone who's vision it is that we are somewhat following.

One reason you there hasn't been a post here is that Erik has been pretty busy with the recent releases. Overall the team actually does work together to define where we are headed and what features we want to see in the game. But Matrix via Erik provides the resources.

The team has it's ideas of things we want to see in the next release, and some of us have our thoughts on how best to get there. My preference is to release one or two expansion packs while we work on the next game in the series, though that decision hasn't been made yet.

Most of the major improvements will have to wait until the next full game though. We think improving performance is critical, as well as improving the infantry aspect of the game. Some of us think the infntnry battle is not too bad as is, but could use some improvement, while some of the team think we need some significant improvement in the infantry fighting. The entire team is watching the forum discusioin to get a sense of what the players think. I think the team agrees that we want to improve the orders mechanics, and most want to incorporate some leader aspects of the game. Destructible terrain is another key item the team agrees on.

Right now things are in a bit of a holding pattern. Hopefully that will change soon.

Thanks
rick

that sounds like a good idea to me. I was watching your other thread on leaders as well.

Well, if Matrix is actually paying attention, it may be time to start contributing to the forums again, though I find that the level of noise contributed by one or two disruptive members of the community in the past has made the experience here on this forum honestly a disincentive to doing so. If the forum is being used as a barometer for interest in the game, I hope that would be taken into account.

It would be nice if more posted. At this time some 280+/- views of this thread and only 9 posts, mostly by the same couple of people.

I am looking forward to any improvements to this game. I like the basis of this game, and it can only get better. Sometimes takes patience...people seem very busy with so many projects.
One of the things that I would like seen is the ability to atleast make some minor adjustments/movement to AT Guns. I know they were mainly moved by trucks, by they should atleast be able to make some minor adjustments.

I am pretty sure that improvements to the mobile guns will be dealt with in the next game.

the patch should provide some minimal mobility to small calibre mobile AT guns. But Ratzki is right, this should be incorporated into the next full game in a more complete manner.

thanks

Hmmmmm....that's the exact same question that started this thread.

Yes, there is a plan.

First and foremost to release the final update for the PCO code.

We've been waiting on Erik to do that.

Once that's done then it will be determined when work on the next game in the series will begin. Every bit of this is in Martix' hands.

Good Hunting.

Just wondering is this game actually playable in terms of controls and ease of use or is it similar to operation star (ie unplayable)?

This game is playable and has been since it became PCO. Of course that's just my opinion and I could be a little biased.

Good Hunting.

I agree with MR..I seen your post and this is similar to Combat Mission...I agree with you on that APOS...I tried the demo....what a mess. Way to hard to get into. This game is more like CM and is easier to get right into. You should have no probs with it if you played CM. Too bad you did not buy this one first. Maybe wait till they come out with the patch before you buy this one. It should be soon.

I've been reading Battlefront's road ahead for Combat Mission. They appear to be funding further development by charging their customers for upgrades. What we have with Panzer Command is a plan to make a plan.

Are they going to add a second sky texture?
We could wait until they release Bagration and make a PCO campaign mod from its scenarios.

I will continue to support PCO as it has potential to be what I want it to be. I know that the next installment might be quite a ways off in the future, but myself and others will still be here. This next one had better not miss the mark though, another "it's so close" release will doom PCO. It might be time to say where the ship is heading, and speak more then in generalities.

IMO what will doom PC more than anything else is inactivity.

Sitting and creating nothing gets you nothing; in both the long and short term.

Good Hunting.

If you're referring to fan created scenarios and maps I think you'll find that will increase proportionally with new Matrix content. No one wants to work on a dead horse.

Does all this mean the new patch isn't out yet?

I suspect that this game will be allowed to die a slow death by the powers that be...although you would think that with CMN now focusing on Italy, specifically Sicily, Matrix would recognize a window of opportunity to hurry up with the next installment and OWN the Eastern Front, A HUGE AREA OF INTEREST FOR WORLD WAR 2 GAMERS.
