What is the best way to find out how much supply a city is producing? Does one simply go to Industry Management and check off HI, LI, and Refinery and then look at individual cities? (That is, as long as "Prod" = "Yes".) Then unless "Failed" has an "X" you know the maximum supply (indicated under "Size-producing") was produced for that city? Or is it the case that a number in red indicates too low of some input and, so, zero (or reduced?) output of the supply? I see that sometimes an X appears along with a number in red. At other times, no X appears but a number is in red.
The best way to keep track of failed industry is to install Tracker and import Kull's region definitions. Then you can go to Industry tab,choose Regional Ind/Repair tab, choose region that interests you (i.e China), choose industry you want (LI,HI, res, manpower) and then sort the cities by Failed column.
For individual bases, choose Bases,then choose region that interests you, then specific base, then Object history, then specific industry and voila - the history of failure appears.
But what is the difference between a factory that has "failed" and a factory that has some input in red (as the amount of this input falls short of that needed (but has not "failed")?
For instance, in the 3rd row (below) the factory has only 136 (in red) of the 672 required fuel but no "X" appears. But in the 5th row the factory has 261 of the required 320 fuel. Although in this case the factory has 82% of the required fuel (261/320), this factory has "failed."
[I don't know why the red numbers are so fuzzy]
[Now not so fuzzy]
