<div>
Population is a game mechanic which allows for Resources and Victory Points to have higher values. Investment in infrastructure, the construction of bunkers and hospitals, and a clearly visible and supportive military contingent of troops will encourage positive increases in population morale, while wars with multiple nations, poor diplomatic relations, and a lack of basic supplies will have negative effects on your campaign.
+
The size of a province's population determines the base production rate of its resources. Buildings that boost economic output base their gains on this rate. Population size also indicates how many [[Victory|Victory Points]] a province is worth. The greater the population, the greater the number of Victory Points.

Your population has a direct effect on the overall morale. Every unit has population damage which translates into civilian casualties in the game. (You can check population damage in the unit information screen, be wary though as it doesn't proportionally translate into a morale penalty).
 +
The more population you kill, the bigger the morale penalty you will receive. This loss in morale caps at -30 and you are able to recover 33% of that everyday. Therefore, if you are at -30 and you show mercy to your civilians, at day change you will drop to -20, then to -14, so on and so forth.

The morale penalty is not severely affected by war, but nukes and chemical weapons tend to have a significant effect.

<h3> Target Morale & Current Morale </h3>
 +
<div>
 +
<p>
 +
Provinces have 2 states : Target Morale & Current Morale <br>
 +
The Target Morale for an annexed city is 75% and all morale modifiers (the values under Morale Factors section like distance to HQ, hospitals) are added or subtracted from the Target Morale. This can be mathematically represented as following:
 +
Highest attainable Morale for that city (<b>Calculated PER CITY</b>) = Target Morale - Negative Modifiers + Positive Modifiers
 +
If you have an annexed city (which has a Target Morale of 75%), and there are the following Morale Factors: -1, -8, -1, -4, +1, then the calculation is as follows:
 +
75% - 1 -8 -1 -4 + 1 = 62% Which is the morale percentage which your Morale will gravitate towards.
 +
 +
If you decide to spend gold to boost the morale for that city, and make it go up to 80%, but has a resting morale of 62% as per our example, then it will slowly decline until 62% is reached. Alternatively if an enemy lowers your morale, it will slowly rise until 62% is attained.
 +
 +
What this number means is that the target morale for that city is 62% and will not rise any higher as long as those negative modifiers are present.

<h3>Attrition</h3>
 
<div>
 
Attrition is a mechanism that makes your units lose some HP as they go through some kind of terrain. It’s not severe enough to kill your units, but the Russian Winter or the Sahara Desert will definitely wound your divisions. Beware of Mountains, Jungles, Arctic, and Desert terrain.

Provinces

Highlighted Province

Provinces are the life of your strategic conquest, and will prove to be useful as outposts, airbases, navy bases and more. They have attributes such as Population, Morale, Production, and Terrain Type.

Province Concstuction List
  • Capturing and holding a province adds to your total Victory Points. In order to capture a province, your units must occupy its center-point (the point where roads usually form a junction). Note that only units that have the 'Capture and Occupy' ability will be able to do this, i.e. most infantry excluding Special Forces.
  • Some provinces contain resources that you harvest by building Local Industry. These resources spawn randomly when a new game is created.
  • Units that are stationed on a province's center-point receive an entrechment bonus that can be further increased through the construction of certain buildings.
  • Provinces without cities on their center-point have their own construction list.

  • Can only be constructed in coastal provinces
  • Allows ground units to embark/disembark
  • Operational at 40% HP

Cities

City construction list

Cities have the largest strategic value as they are worth a lot of Victory Points, which is dependent on the city's population.

  • Capture a city just like you would any other province. In this case, the city represents the province's center-point.
  • Homeland cities and annexed cities are the biggest source for resources.
  • The entrenchment bonus provides 25% less damage to units.

Homeland City

NATIONALIZE ICON BIG.png

Homeland cities are cities that you own at the start of a campaign. These cities have the best starting attributes, with high morale and population, so keep a good eye on them.

Occupied City

As you conquer new cities, the local population will not appreciate your invasion into their homeland. The maximum morale cap will be lower compared to annexed and homeland cities, and you will not be able to mobilize units. You can, however, construct buildings.

Annexed City

Screenshot at Feb 13 08-38-28.png

Annexed cities remove the morale cap of an Occupied City and allow you to start mobilising units. Also, annexation increases resource production from 25% to 50%.

To Annex a city, select it in your construction list.

AnnexCity.png

Population

The size of a province's population determines the base production rate of its resources. Buildings that boost economic output base their gains on this rate. Population size also indicates how many Victory Points a province is worth. The greater the population, the greater the number of Victory Points.

  • Population growth is affected by morale.
  • Hospitals directly increase population growth.
  • Wars with multiple nations and a lack of basic supplies will have a negative impact.

WMD Contamination

WMD missile attacks will contaminate the target province. You have to manually decontaminate affected provinces by selecting the contaminated province and selecting the 'Decontaminate' option.

Contamination has a number of effects on the province, including preventing mobilization and preventing population growth at a certain contamination level.

Morale

Population Morale Overlay - from negative (red) to positive (green)

Morale plays a vital role in your nation's efficiency. It increases/decreases over time and is influenced by several factors. The morale for each province is updated with every in- game day-change. You can gain an overview of your provinces' morale by toggling the Population Morale overlay via the Settings & Info Panel.

  • If you are at war with a nation who has 0VP the morale of your nation will not be affected.
  • Morale of a province directly affects its resource production rate, unit mobilization times, and construction time of buildings.
  • If a province has a low morale level, its output of resources is significantly reduced.
  • You can construct buildings that boost morale. Investment in infrastructure, the construction of bunkers and hospitals will gradually increase population morale.
  • The most dramatic outcome of low morale is insurgency. In order to counter population uprisings, leave a unit behind to boost morale.


Your population has a direct effect on the overall morale. Every unit has population damage which translates into civilian casualties in the game. (You can check population damage in the unit information screen, be wary though as it doesn't proportionally translate into a morale penalty). The more population you kill, the bigger the morale penalty you will receive. This loss in morale caps at -30 and you are able to recover 33% of that everyday. Therefore, if you are at -30 and you show mercy to your civilians, at day change you will drop to -20, then to -14, so on and so forth. The morale penalty is not severely affected by war, but nukes and chemical weapons tend to have a significant effect.


Some factors that affect your population's morale include:

  • Availability of Resources - Citizens need certain goods to be efficient members of society. Make sure your population's basic needs are met. These are 'Supplies' and 'Money', should these be in red, or zero - there will be an impact on population morale.

  • Distance to headquarters
  • War - Nobody likes war. Being at war with other countries has a negative impact on population morale.
  • Morale of neighboring provinces - A revolutionist mood can spread across province borders, including those of neighboring countries.
  • Enemy armies - Combat in your territory will have a negative impact on your people's morale, including artillery attacks on your cities and provinces. Also, neighboring enemy provinces also have a negative impact on your morale.
  • Enemy agents might also reduce your morale
  • Killing civilians (population damage) reduces morale significantly.


Target Morale & Current Morale

Provinces have 2 states : Target Morale & Current Morale
The Target Morale for an annexed city is 75% and all morale modifiers (the values under Morale Factors section like distance to HQ, hospitals) are added or subtracted from the Target Morale. This can be mathematically represented as following: Highest attainable Morale for that city (Calculated PER CITY) = Target Morale - Negative Modifiers + Positive Modifiers If you have an annexed city (which has a Target Morale of 75%), and there are the following Morale Factors: -1, -8, -1, -4, +1, then the calculation is as follows: 75% - 1 -8 -1 -4 + 1 = 62% Which is the morale percentage which your Morale will gravitate towards. If you decide to spend gold to boost the morale for that city, and make it go up to 80%, but has a resting morale of 62% as per our example, then it will slowly decline until 62% is reached. Alternatively if an enemy lowers your morale, it will slowly rise until 62% is attained. What this number means is that the target morale for that city is 62% and will not rise any higher as long as those negative modifiers are present.


Distance to Headquarters

Relocate Headquarters

Your nation's capital is a significant factor for morale across provinces.

  • The greater the distance between a province and your capital, the greater the negative impact on that province's morale will be.
  • You can designate a new city as your capital which will boost morale performance by 25% to nearby cities and provinces.
  • If your capital is conquered by another player or rogue faction, all your provinces lose 20% morale.


Terrain

Each province has a terrain type which can be seen through the terrain overlay or province bar. There are ten types of terrain that will directly influence your unit's attributes.

Terrain Types

Check out the Terrain Modifiers section to see how terrain affects your units' attributes.

Terrain Icon Terrain Type Description Image
