Plus having sliders would provide finer control instead of 10% increments. I agree this UI could be improved upon.
Setting the maximum percentage of the total amount of logistics points available to be used for each phase at 100 % does not mean the total is split 25 % for each, but rather :
- if the SHQ needs 100 % of the total available to send Items requested by its zones, it consumes all and there's nothing left for the subsequent phases ;
- if that required less, if the SHQ needs 100 % of the remaining logistical points left to send supplies to the units, it consumes all and there's nothing left for the subsequent phases ;
You can end up having a total greater than 100 % but in my opinion in rather fringe cases, when you have some emergency and want to make sure to allow a greater percentage of your logistics capacity is allowed to one phase, while still allowing some of it to one or several other ones. You shouldn't have to use it that often if your network is reasonably robust.
The fact that the phases happen in succession, and thus the early ones are inherently prioritized, somewhat limits what you can accomplish by adjusting this setting. (For instance, Replacements being last, you can only reserve 70 % of the total if you don't want to entirely shut down the rest. You can set it to 100 % and the rest to 0 % if you want to make sure to use all available logistical points to ferry Replacements if needed, but should have points left after that, they would be left unused since there's no going back.)
