mroyer -> SHQ Infantry Bar - Popup info => include requested (10/3/2020 2:00:49 AM)

For the left-hand SHQ inventory bar, I would find it very useful if the popup info listed, in addition to amount sent, the amount requested.

See the figure below for example; left image is how it appears now, right is how I'm recommending.

(Unless, of course, this info is available elsewhere that I haven't discovered yet.)

Thanks for a great game,
-Mark R.

Well, life teaches the quickest way to find something is to ask for help.
I've been searching for this info for months. I finally decided it didn't exist and posted above about it. And, voila, within hours I find it...[&:]

Anyhow, cumulative requests per SHQ by resource type is available under Stats -> Logistics; exactly what I'd been looking for to aid in resource planning and management, something I've been woefully poor at so far.

Nevertheless, I still recommend adding the info per the opening post as it is a sensible spot for it and provides easier access for players.

Every time I think I've got something figured out, the game proves me wrong - I haven't figured out anything. Not sometimes, not most time, EVERY TIME. Getting very frustrating!

I can't figure out how to figure any part of this game out.

As always, nothing adds up the way I expected it would or should.

For example...
Here's my current turn - I'm in the middle of a food crisis and I can't figure out how to get the information I need to fix it. I have plenty of logistics and agricultural production capacity, so I'm pretty sure it's mainly due to worker shortages. While I attempt to bolster the work-force, I want to buy food on the open market. But, for the life of me, I can't figure out how much I need to buy.

In the following figure...

I expected the logistical stats cumulative totals for 1st SHQ to equal the sum of the subordinate HQ totals. They're not even close. The SHQ shows 1569/1904. But if I add the sub HQ values up I get 459/1388!!??!! How should I interpret that?

Moreover, I expected the "Sent to units: 642" on the left resource bar for 1st SHQ to match the totals received by its units. Again, no matter how I add up the numbers I can't get a match. I'm totally flummoxed.

As awesome and fun as this game is, it's accountants would fail a CPA exam miserably.

Anyhow - enough ranting.... [:(] anyone have any idea what's going on and how to interpret the numbers?

Thanks for any thoughts,
-Mark R.

<edit: using 1.05b5>

If you're playing beta 6, maybe your difficulty is due to the problem reported in the thread titled "[1.05b6]SHQ totals in stats->unit supply wrong" in the Tech Support section of the forum? (I'd give you the direct link, but I'm not allowed to embed links in my posts yet.)

I'm using 1.05b5, but.... I'll bet you're spot on. It may have been an issue in earlier betas too - seems like a very similar case.

Thanks for pointing that out!

I noticed that bug a long, long time ago, but didn't get around to reporting it until then. Sorry ;)
