Poll on the WP2 series supply system. This involves main sources, port source, supply values, rails, roads, and how it extends and generates effectiveness.

Lots of options here, I went with "Improved system automated". The current system is good but could use some improvements.

For me personally the effects of not enough supply should be slightly more gradual.

Random examples, not really what I think should be done: First turn out of supply, maybe only lose 1 move? Basic port supply to unit that doesn't move, maybe never be drained under 50% readiness?

Forgot to mention I don't like how supply either passes on a rail hex or doesn't. Not sure how it could be done, but maybe the max supply level could be reduced instead?

I am picking improved manually and here is why..

First off...I hate basic supply.
When a port level 1 can supply 20 full corps I have issue with that. It could not get enough ammo or fuel let alone water and food but even that would be pushed to its limits.
To add to this...I don't like how they system picks which units are in basic supply.
I would like the ability to pick which units will be in basic supply and NOT be able to change it until all units are in full supply, that way people can't keep switching who is in supply and who is out.

I also can't wait for both game systems to match.

Can't tell you how many times I try to blockade a port in WPE which basically does nothing...
And forget that it can be blocked in the WPP.

I vote for "Super complex improved manual system" if this means to be able to achieve easily the following:

9. Better simulation of transport or MM ships needed to supply port. Ability to prioritize which island / port must be supplied first
