Game change:

"Have been phasing out the usage of the term “LIS” and replaced it by “Logistical Points”"

Check above. v1.03 is out.

Guess I will start over again. I was stumbling through my current game and it wasn't going well but was learning a lot.

Thank you, Vic.

The divine can never die for that is not the nature of the divine. LIS is divine for that is why we have the glorious cult of LIS! Thus LIS can never die heretic!

Glorious LIS and OLIS strike down the unworthy heretics! Curse them with lemmings for truckers and endless road gore! Curse them!

On a serious note, great change for maintaining some vague consistency in internal acronyms and general intelligibility, especially for those 'casual' players who don't want to parse 350 plus pages of dense, technical and... umm... imperfectly written manual before playing their game. It was really, really confusing when some parts of the game state LP or LIS but the manual states LIS and you don't know if those two values are the same or not. Not good. Much better now.

May your supply lines run empty, and may your oil evaporate, heretic. For as long as there are roads, and for as long as there are railroads, LIS shall never die!

Blessed be the name of the Supply God.

But yes, hopefully new people won't be like 'wtf is LIS?'.

I'll keep it LIS in my mind. Just for fun. Just as a testament and a reminder that I was here in the first days of release :p

They think that by tearing down our roads, by changing our holy words that they will erase us! THEY ARE WRONG!

Blessed are those who follow the path of LIS, for they shall be supplied!

Hallowed are the LIS.

Then their fate is to follow a bottlednecked supply path to logistical enlightenment.

Hallowed are the LIS.

There should be a Cult of LIS that provides a logistical bonus when properly worshiped!

That's a great idea! It would add to the lore of the game and shouldn't be any trouble to add.

The LIS Mage is indeed the most fearsome cult unit on the battlefield. He is able to conjure LIS points out of thin air for your troops.

Too bad I already voted on the poll. I should have done a write in comment that the Cult of LIS must be added! Otherwise Vic will run out of LIS points!

I choose to worship the Logistics Points Wizard! He has mastered the teachings of rule 2.
