Hi Guys,

Those are caps. They were there from the start iirc (Manpower cap was definitely there, but Metal I'm not sure...I didn't see it but maybe I never had enough metal). With the latest 1.04 update they're more significant. Basically, based on your military expertise (from buildings, nation traits, leader abilities etc) you get a cap for manpower and metal. You can go above that (like in your case) but each turn a fraction of the 'surplus' is lost. I think it's 1/4, but I might be wrong.

Ah, that makes a lot of sense.
Never paid attention to them before. Good to know, thanks for the answer.
