2D or not 2D?

Post  Dr Ezra Sidran on Sun Jul 17, 2016 6:07 pm

I've just posted on the topic of making General Staff a 2D or a 3D game with screen shots displaying the pros and cons of both arguments.

Please feel free to take a look and leave a comment:

I am very much for 2D, the 3D map doesn't look too nice, and the unit blocks may have clip problems with different terrain heights.

Thank you very much for your feedback.
And, by the way, I agree with you completely.

I also prefer the 2D. Have you thought of half and half solution? When I use to run Kriegsspiel I used Irregualr 2mm troop blocks on proper sized bases with the 2D maps and it gave a nice effect

I am experimenting now trying to find a way to display the troop blocks in a pleasing pseudo-3D way.

Take a look at this image from a very early post on the General Staff blog:

I very much appreciate the comments and feedback!
