As long as the 3D is to scale I'm OK about it. Things like Panzer Korps with huge tanks isn't my thing at all.

Every so often I load up Steel Panthers 2 for a quick blast - it still stands up very well. Best is to pitch some advanced NATO tanks (Challenger 2s or M1A1s) against much larger numbers of Warsaw Pact T-72s or T-55s and let the slaughter begin!

You could be interested about WinSPMBT (Windows Steel Panthers Main Battle Tank). It is heavily modified version of SP2. They have also modded SP2 for Second World War (or World War 2) and it goes by name of WinSPWW2. Matrix Games has also made its own variation of Steel Panthers called Steel Panthers World at War, though it has some performance issues with multicore processors and Windows 7.

Graphically I'd certainly like to have an upgrade and think that 3D could work - but only if it keeps the same feel to the game, with hexes and the tension created by not knowing whether your next shot would kill the enemy.

Game engine is the same as in Battle Academy series. You can look up that game for reference. Presumably Steel Tigers will have detail and complexity close to Steel Panthers series and hopefully with hexes instead of squares.

It is not the BA game engine, but a customised flavour of the much more advanced Archon engine.

Cheers

Uuh... I thought Battle Academy was the first game with Archon engine. What is BA's engine called and is it used in other games like maybe Sengoku Jidai and Field of Glory 2?

[edit]
And are there any games made with Archon yet?

I cant wait to see it cos so far little Ive seen of anything made with the Archon engine seems to have the detail I imagine many want in STeel Tigers. So can't wait to see what this engine can do. Is it the same engine as Sanctus Reach? As Ive seen requests for that game that apparently aren't possible in engine and the requests are the kinds of thing I'd like to see in ST.

Saying this I think the ARchon engine is being used for the next Close Combat and that looks unlike anything made previously with said engine.

BA, BA2, P&S etc are all in the prior STUB engine.

Sanctus and FoG2 are both using Archon. CC:TBF and ST (as well as other games) also use Archon. Archon comes in a number of flavours customised for specific game genres.

Cheers

There are always priorities for where we spend time adding features.

This is good news for Steel Tigers.

I still have hopes that one day the BA type of content / atmosphere will make it onto that engine.


I anticipate that Steel Tigers will be awesome and have a database of every type of boot worn from 41 - 45

but the story oriented / atmospheric role will not likely be filled by ST. ( I may be wrong on that - but it does not seem to be 2by3 style)
