I have noted in this forum that Micheal decided not to include the numbers for PBEM and only diamonds for the '5' hotkey or supply trace. May I ask what was the thinking behind this? Is there some sort of unfair advantage in knowing how the game and in particular supply is effected by events?

To summarize vaguely, Crackaces, with only the diamonds displayed, you don't know for sure why a supply path might end. It could be the cumulative effects of the terrain or it could be from an unspotted enemy force. With numbers, if you see 95, 90, 85, 0 in 4 hexes of a path, you can likely determine there be bad guys.

Ok .... Thanks for the heads up. I can understand the logic.

My problem is that the diamonds are tracing quite well but no supply is flowing after an IJ attack and defeat. I am thinking that after the attack from Singapore to Johore Bahru went from an endpoint receiving supply [not much but some] to somehow being changed. No supply whatsoever is flowing for 2 weeks. But I cannot tell what the algorithum is doing so I cannot tell if it works as designed or this situation has caused a problem....Diamonds are connected back to Bangkok ...


Ok I can live with this ....my opponent if lurking will know now I am out of supply

Thanks as always! It explains two things .. but not yet the third which is a sudden change in supply from adequite to none that has lasted two weeks. But the first post in the thread was the most informative .. supply in this game is pure &*(^%$$$ magic

I am evacuating out units to lessen supply load in teh area and placing a minimum number of units in defense to put a damper on a sortie out of Singer's. I was hoping beyond hope to take Singapore overland and end this game in an autovictory .. but I have to find yet another path ....
