Are all of the units fully supplied? Many new players do not build enough supply units and then their units cannot move.

Simple fix - disband them all and reform them.

Don't mean to hi-jack the topic, but just an add-on question.

I get a constant message that one of my army units, which I have yet to identify, is "unsupplied for over three months".

I have a suspicion it is some city/fort garrison that i may have installed early on and forgotten about, and now haven't found again.

I've built three additional small supply units, and one additional large one, in a 25 mill pop country.

Are you saying I should disband all the supply units and then reform them? Or all the Land Army units, and reform?

Does disbanding all Land units also disband all garrisons, and if not, is there a way to do that without searching each city/fort?



PS Do many folks buy gasoline or military supplies manually to stock up and speed/smooth the resupply function?

Berand, check your defensive forces page. You will need some of everything you use active for the supply units to take to the garrisons/units. Also you will have to have ammunition available. Re-active max of any catagory that says 0 active, or buy more if you have none in-active.

If you have auto purchasing on for your country it should buy enough gas and rations for your army, but it doesnt hurt to manual order some extras for those 'emergencies'.

In general you need 1 supply unit for each unit and garrison. So if you have 120 garrisons and 20 units, you need 140 supply units.

When you build supply unit build "small" units with 125 jeeps in each.

When you get a message that a unit is unsupplied, I believe that the message only refers to Military Supplies and Gas.

I am pretty sure it applys to all things required Plato, when I re-activated my war slaves garrisons to 100% I got this message alot, with 0 active showing on some batts, several re-activations stopped the message. I have oodles of ammo and gas and supplies in my slave (as one does) so this is what I base my comment on, still, I could be wrong.

I think that the main thing involved in a unit being out of supply is that it hasn't had a supply unit come by and that is a function of the number of supply units.

I am certain that it does not apply to ammo, b/c being primarily a econ player, my garrisons used to be tragically short of ammo and I never received a message that I was out of supply.

Does target practice come out of unit/garrison stock or national stock? I have always assumed that it came out of national, but I can't see what the garrisons have. Oh, Well.
