I recommend the description for the supply base be updated. IMO, the supply base description is not clear enough given that players may assume it stockpiles supplies.




I realize the description indicates it does not store supplies, but it's odd that the description begins by describing what it does not do with respect to trucks.

Perhaps it needs something concise and clearly descriptive text regarding it's value to the player.

I do realize it extends trucks along the road network (50 hexes?), I just don't think that's clear enough.

Also, is there any effect on rail? Answer, no. Perhaps that should be noted as well.

I note the above description indicates "no production." However, the previous menu item (shown here), indicates it produces "hexes". I recommend both produces descriptions be the same in whatever description is best.

Maybe a desciption more like this:
quote:

The Supply Base creates additional movementpoints for Supply that reach the Hex. It doesn't create Supply or replenish it. Supply travells along the Roadnetwork but diminishes after it has exhausted its movementpoints.

It starts with Info about what a Supply Base does do and provides some Info why it is useful.

Or how about renaming it "Truck Logistics Extension (TLE)" and in the description - "The TLE extends the Logistics from the hex it is placed by an additional 50 Logistics Points."

Interesting; so it's 50 supply points; not 50 hexes as the second image implies. Is there an icon for supply points that could be used in place of a hex? A player might confuse the current icon with distance or area in hexes.

It is Supply/Logistics points. I know a Road is 10 Points, not sure what anything else is. So it gives you like 5 free Road hexes (pretty sure that is correct). I assume that changes if you have Sealed Roads because they are faster. I do not know if that helps Rail, everything about Rail confuses me.
