Question about diminishing supply:

The manual states: If a unit cannot trace an LoC tot a supply source, its supply level will drop by an amount equal to the number of half days in a turn.

What is that 'amount'? Is it a percentage, something else?

THanks in advance for your replies.

Yes, I believe the supply of a unit is measured in percent.

Thanks, Larry.  However, I should have elaborated a bit. How much percent does supply diminish per turn for an out-of-supply unit? I.e., after how many turns is it (almost) totally ineffective?

afaik supply per se does not diminish - it is the value of hte hex.

What does diminish for an out-of-supply-unit is it's effectiveness.  supply is what restores you from red to 0range to yellow to light green to green - with no supply you can only get worse.

How fast you get worse depends upon what you do - if yuo do a lot of fightign you will quickly get to red.  If you do a lot of moving you will get there more slowly.

If you sit still and do nothing you may not get there at all.

OK, if you're lucky your unit wll have been at 100% supply when he was cut off, for example. :) Now, also, say you're playing full week turns, now last time I checked there were 7 days, and therefore 14 half-days in a week. Therefore, it would take less than 10 turns for that unit to be down to 1% supply, if he did absoutely nothing.

Now, attacking also takes a certain percentage of your supply, pretty sure it 10% per attack, so every time you unit attacks when it is cut off, it losses an additional 10%.

SO, if your 100% supply unit is cut off, attacks three times in a turn, gets attacked 3 times by the enemy in that turn, and is unsupplied, you'd be down to 26% supply after a single turn... OUCH!

EDIT: Does that answer your question?
