Floating Supply

Post by Lobster »

Always wondered why there was no option for supply to float above units. While you can see the info in the popup sometimes the popups are so annoying they get shut off not only by me but by others.

At first I thought you were talking about supply being delivered by balloon....

I suppose you mean like floating place names? I see your point. For myself, I just tap the space bar to make units invisible, then tap it again when I'm done.

Yeah and like I said it's in the tooltip. Just one of those minor annoying things that could have been included with floating airfields, placenames, ports and objectives. Would be nice to have the visual of all of the units and the supply at the same time. Maybe I need more coffee. ;)

The 'Floating Supply' option was removed long ago due to the possible gamey practice of quartermaster hoarding.
