Panzer Campaigns Japan ’45 – Operation Olympic Released!
After seven years it's great to get another game out in the venerable Panzer Campaigns series! It's even more exciting that we have moved for the first time to the Pacific for Japan '45 - Operation Olympic.

Enjoy guys! A TEAM effort for sure on this one. I am used to doing the games pretty much on my own, other than artwork and programming support and this was a pleasant change.

I have brought in three individuals to help me with the grunt labor and research work and thus this will cut down the production time a lot. My goal is to do the main work but get other folks on board not only for production time but also for the knowledge needed to accurately do this series justice.

So stay tuned for more games!

@Strela

I see you guys have re-intoduced the "spotted" icons on the unitboxes (colored bar above the nato symbol). *I was wrong, see Strelas respons below*. But i figured they were not really necessary anyway since i cant really see a use for it to know if my units are "spotted" or not. Generally, all enemy units you see are always "spotted" anyway so the only thing this tells you is which of your own units are "spotted" by the enemy.

So do i miss something here or is it really not important to know in 99% of the cases ?

We never removed the colour bar?

I just checked a few titles that we have given the Gold treatment to and they all have the yellow bar?

The thing about spotted units is unless they spotted a unit that spotted them, they wouldn't know they were spotted.
