Mountainmen eat more supply in mountains rather than less?

The listed food usage in the tooltip for units with the Mountainmen trait is higher when they're in mountains compared to other terrain, rather than lower like it is supposed to be. See the image below. It shows two tooltips for the exact same unit, first when it is in the mountain region of Nicaea ...

Re: BETA: Has the dynamic for supplying armies from fleets changed?

Each ship provides 1 supply point. 5 supply points is equivalent to one food unit; most units eat between 2 to 4 points depending on unit type, terrain acclimation, ruler skill and generals' traits. As you say, you need a pretty substantial fleet to properly supply a large army.

Re: Diplomacy Question

In the new patch, when you take regions during a war, you're only occupying them temporarily, not getting stuck with them forever. In order to keep them after a peace, you have to ask for the ones you want in the peace negotiations.

Re: Masallia Hints??

I started a Massilia playthrough in the new patch. I figured it's not worth it early on to try to take on the Gauls to form the province or hang onto the nearby undeveloped regions that are going to get constantly raided and possibly invaded, given you start with so little manpower, so I focused on ...

Re: No Updates ?

It hasn't, you've just been paying zero attention. If you had bothered to check the pinned threads, you would've seen that the beta has gone through two more iterations since December. The release of the new update is expected any day now.

Re: Been Away...Any word on DLCs etc??

The end results from wars are going to be resolved through actual peace negotiations with lots of new options, rather than the old system of "you occupy the region, you're stuck with it". You can also trade regions, resources and provincial units with other factions outside of war, including in exch...

Re: On Trade

You appear to be making making 340% of the base value of that iron trade in a region with, what, a +22% local commerce modifier. Also, you have 146k money in the treasury, with 4.8k income well beyond the point where stockpiling money is supposed to hit diminishing returns. So... What I'm getting fr...

Re: Macedonien removed over 4000 decadenz in one turn

Judging by the token gain, they declined to Old government status on turn 105. I'm guessing they were Glorious before, so would've lost the +35% decadence modifier from that. If declining in government status reduces government age like progressing does, that seems like it should account for the rem...

Re: Attack and Defence Again

impulses aren't random, in effect the first sees every unit on the map expend 1 MP, the second sees every unit expend its second MP and so on. So more MP mean you carry on moving while other stacks/units have stopped. Within an individual movement tick / impulse, armies (apparently?) move in some s...

Re: On skirmishers

All 14 Horse archers caused "Exhaustion" in their target. You get that regularly with foot skirmishers?

Re: Attack and Defence Again

If one army moved during the last movement tick and the other did not, the one that did not move is always the defender, based on this post . It used to work in a different, more opaque manner before version 1.0.6. I'm not sure what happens when two armies arrive in the same region at the same time ...

Re: On skirmishers

The values for "fatigue margin" are only listed for ranged combat units, so by logical deduction is not a melee unit feature. The 2nd pic shows what exceptional skirmishers can do to the enemy. The manual says what the Skirmisher trait does: * Some units have the skirmisher trait. Even if they lose...

Re: Unit Move Routes

I've noticed that often/sometimes when I plan the move of a unit from one region to another that the AI takes over and changes the route after I make the final click to confirm. Why is this? This happens for movement orders targeting another stack. I have not seen it any other circumstance. Althoug...

Re: Lake Bug

The AI can't lose units to being out of supply, unless they're in a besieged city (there's a checkbox in the options menu to turn this rule on for players as well). I see three possibilities. 1: It's a Parthian fleet and will disappear once you wipe out Parthia and they have no surviving allies. 2: ...

Re: A Bug?

There can be multiple Abandoned Palaces in a region if it gets made a capitol and then conquered multiple times. Massilia/Emporia having multiples of Epiteichismata and their other faction-specific building per region is working as designed, that's a faction-specific mechanic for them.

Re: Ranged Attack: Skirmish Phase

1: Ranged attack vs Ranged defence makes sense. However, melee units don't seem to have a ranged defence value. Do they just use their regular defence value, or is there something else going on? They do have one, it's just that in battles, the game always shows the tooltip with the duel phase value...

Re: How are naval units supplied?

They are able to draw supply from friendly ports within the same seazone. If you need to maintain a consistent blockade against a coastal region away from your ports, you can split your fleet into 2 and rotate them each turn so one half is always in supply to recover from the attrition hits.
