Supply Lines Question

Unread postby dragonfangxl » Sun Jul 14, 2013 11:20 am

Hey, very new user (just bought during summer sale). Why is it sometimes that the supply lines seem to cut in half for no reason. One moment your troops will be in supply, the next the supply reach is cut in half. Plus when you hold down s the numbers go like 9, 7, 5, 3, 1.

hi dragonfangxl,

supply depends on the weather.

Here are two excerpts from the manual - page 14, section 3.4, Supply Tracing:

Supply is traced from supply sources by expending points in almost the same way as moving. Tracing starts from each supply source with points equal to its range. It then works its way into the field while expending points according to supply table.
ClearForest Mountain Swamp HillsDesertCity
Dry 1 2 A 3 2 2 1
Mud 2 3 X A 3 2 1
Snow 1 2 X 2 2 2 1

and page 18, section 3.7, Logistics:

The weather changes from one turn to the next, and the current supply view may not be valid on the next turn. Use your knowledge of the date and geographic location to plan for the weather change and its effects on supply.
