He was actually incorrect. The black health dot indicates that the unit is Unsupplied, not overextended. There is no equivalent dot for overextended. It is indicated by the font color of the supply display, however.

Edit: And note that that black dot indicates that the 6th RTR was Unsupplied, not overextended in at least some of the tests you performed.

Bob,

Thanks for clearing that up. So, the only way to check if a unit is overextended is to look at the font colour of the supply display. Then, one would have to take a look to check if the unit is actually suffering from the desertion effects of being overextended.

I do not know how difficult it would be to have some sort of highlight on the counter to show that a unit is in a position that might cause it to be overextended or is actually suffering from desertion. In the meantime, I will just have to be careful.

All the best,

I started looking at supply radius - first looking in the manual

Here is a look at examples from two different scenarios. I really do not understand how supply radius works. Can anyone help?

As simply as I can put it, the bigger the supply radius the slower that supply attenuates with distance.

So, if the SR is 5, then at 25 MPs away, the supply is 5 supply radii away from the source. If the SR is 10, then the supply doesn't reach that attenuation until the unit is 50 MPs away, etc.

I think that this slide will be my last one - unless some one has a question or points out a mistake that I made. I would like to thank Bob (Curtis Lemay) and Steve (sPzAbt653) for their assistance and answers. I found working my way through the different supply issues very interesting. Hopefully, it will help me in future games.

All the best,
