I've been panicking about supply all 1755 to be honest, esp after losing so much in RoP.This is proving to be very interesting - keep up the good work and the rapid pace of updating too.
I'd be grateful if you could offer some insight on supply as well. It seems that especially the French just go behind enemy lines without much consideration. Is that because of the Indian troops?
My instinct is, at least for the French, the system is more forgiving than it is in RoP. My light units (Indians and the French Couriers) seem to carry enough with them for the entire season (I see it declining over time but never to a point of concern). I've not really moved my combat brigades away from my bases and the ports on Lake Champion but the one regular battalion I did send behind a raiding party ran low on supply and had to go back to Niagara ... so my instinct is sending regulars off into the widlerness will backfire, but the irregulars seem pretty immune to supply constraints.
If so, I was far too cautious in my moves.
