The Stones really should give it up already. They looked and sounded pitiful.


Agree, but it looks like they are going to play till they die.

On topic. I'm looking forward to the planned 2by3 game

Hurray for squares this time around. I love squares and I really like the Battle Academy engine. That screen shot was pretty detailed compared to the Steel Panthers I been playin. Now if only they turned them just a little to a more isometric view it would be perfect. [&o]

Had to post this :) Uncontrollable urge here.

Oh by the way, I don't hate the Stones or anything, just think this song said it better.

Love the one you're with (or in game terms, if you can't have the game you want, love the game you got :) ).

Ah....Indeed!!! But in the words of the VeggieTales "The Bad Apple" episode that my kids watch so much "...I'm not talkin' bout moderation, TEMPTATION!!!"[8D][8D][8D]

To avoid any confusion:

- It's using hexes.
- The engine is much more advanced compared to STUB (BA/BA2/P&S/Hell/Jidai), it just uses some of the same paradigms internally.

I appreciate that in the absence of real information people will create some, but... [;)]

Cheers

It would need to be if it is intended to match or exceed the current SPWAW engine.
I'm so looking forward to it. I hope it's grand.

What I most want out of a Steel Panthers successor is something that the Combat Mission games (which I love for their own merits) won't give me - a randomized campaign generator. The only reason I played the Steel Panthers series for so long is because of that one single feature. I still play SPMBT because of it. I just want to play it on an engine/UI designed after I hit puberty.




Riitaoja2 -> RE: @ Matrix: Gary Grigsby's Tactical Wargame...any news? (3/29/2016 7:16:01 PM)

I am sorry for thinking it might use squares. I do prefer hexes anyway! Thank you for clearing that up Pip! [:)]

All I require is it be as fun as Steel Panthers and if it was able to give me multiplayer as easily as Battle Academy that would be awesome. I've never enjoyed multiplayer more than when playing BA.

Just give us a SP:WaW that works on new computers without losing anything it has now.
Hexes! (Yay!)
No isometric... top down graphics like what we already have is best.
Increased OOB slots.
More realistic scale for buildings, roads, and units.
25m hexes or even 10m.
Capability for larger maps.
Double, quadruple or more the current number of units in a battle.
PBEM/online/hotseat/solitaire are required.
Random battles/campaigns a must.

C&C is a definite MUST... if you don't include this it will make me sick.

The armor penetration system must not be dumbed-down.


What I'm trying to say is there's nothing that needs to be deleted, only fixed and increased.
Don't make it too graphics/animation intensive, it shouldn't require a big graphics card.




DROregon -> RE: @ Matrix: Gary Grigsby's Tactical Wargame...any news? (3/30/2016 3:34:29 AM)

I know we've been clear in what we expect in an update to SPWAW, ala Steel Tigers. I hope they're listening.

I think you need to use more hyperbole.




PipFromSlitherine -> RE: @ Matrix: Gary Grigsby's Tactical Wargame...any news? (3/30/2016 11:02:02 PM)

The new Archon engine includes the most hyperbole of any game engine, ever.

Cheers

Pip

C&C is a MOST definite "MUST HAVE"...
If you don't include this it will make me vomit blood!


Does that satisfy your need for hyperbole?




MrsWargamer -> RE: @ Matrix: Gary Grigsby's Tactical Wargame...any news? (3/31/2016 12:42:58 PM)

I can support C&C too. Otherwise there's not a lot of point to fretting over historicity when it's just a sandbox game of army men.

I have mixed filings. A bit too cartonish.[8D]




Riitaoja2 -> RE: @ Matrix: Gary Grigsby's Tactical Wargame...any news? (4/1/2016 2:05:19 PM)

Well it is not too bad. I guess this is just the way games are nowadays... Might as well get used to it.

I still hope they would have used 2D top down instead of the 3D graphics.

I suppose I will pass on this game..................I was hoping for a 1/32 scale holographic game that I could project in the garden or basement. [;)]
