Hi there, sorry for the completely newb question, and if the answer already exists feel free to point me towards it. I read the notes in the game itself... over and over again. And yet I can't seem to understand how manpower works and what it has to do with the values of each territory and which one of these has anything to do with how many units i can place in a territory. Especially since during the purchasing phase you can buy tons and tons of infantry... but I can hardly find any place to put them.
Now, I get that there have to be limits... but I cannot figure out what those limits are. Consider this screenshot. I know it's an old picture of a previous version of the game. But the objects we're talking about here haven't changed much.
So, if you look at Jacksonville, the territory has a value of 1. But the manpower has been upgraded to 2. And there is a drill tent which means you can raise 2 military units (potentially). Going by one part of the notes I feel like it says that manpower determines how many units you can raise.... but in another part of the notes is says that units are limited by territory value. So confused! Especially when I see a barracks, where you can build 4 units... but the territory has a value of 2 and the manpower is 3.
So I'm pretty sure that just because manpower or territory value is a specific number doesn't mean that's how many units can be raised there. And I'd like to understand why that is. Same goes for the types of buildings which generate military units.
Is there some kind of more thorough explanation of how all this works?
Whoever did this map did an amazing job. I just want to know how I should be interpreting all these symbols.
Thanks so much.
