1) It doesn't impact BP or Truck Points, that's true, but my point is that facilities that have a lot of LIS shouldn't count that much towards the strain, even if they're beyond 6 hexes. Remoteness is an issue, but if you have a mine that's right by one of the main rail lines in the country, it shouldn't be that much of a problem.
3) I am fighting several wars in my current game, so I need quite a few truck stops about 15-20 hexes from the nearest town or more. The strain added up and I had to create several new zones. Plus, resources are really scarce so mines are often very far from towns, necessitating more zonea.
I need ten females for each male...
