Quick query: If I increase the supplies required on, for example, Noumea, an island which can only be supplied by sea, does that have any effect of any sort on anything. There's a button there to allow you to increase the supplies required. I understand that when I use this button for land bases that are supplied by land there are consequences, but for islands that I have to supply by sea? Thanks.
If I'm not mistaken, Noumea is the base at the southern end of New Caledonia; there ARE 2 other bases north of Noumea - Koumac at the northern tip and one other near Noumea. So, if either or both of those bases have EXCESS supply it can be pulled to Noumea. I would increase the supply draw at Noumea to ensure that it doesn't leak away to those bases, unless they need supply as well.
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
