Purpose:

This page has all sorts of detailed information for the stat-hungry micromanagers. Most of the needed information is given in shorthand elsewhere on the page, but this information will give you some extra details that you will not find elsewhere.

Wall Status:

Wall Status Chart

This chart will give you all of the details that you will really need to know about your camp's walls. The chart will list your total land, the total circumference of land to be enclosed, your current Wall Strength research, how many units of wall you currently have encircling your camp, what percentage is covered, how many more wall units you need to be at 100% coverage, and how many units of wall you can build with your current research.

Before you begin researching Wall Strength, you will only be able to cover your camp with wall to 100% coverage. As you go up, you can check back on this page to see how much extra wall beyond 100% you can build.

Wall needed is calculated by how much of your total land has been used by your camp. It is assumed that your camp will be built roughly square, thus the wall needed will be calculated using the land used as your camp's area.

Power Status:

Power Status Chart

Your second chart on this page will show you the basic details about your power. You will be able to see your total power, how much is being consumed, what your Power Generation research is, how much power you have left, and the percentage of your power that is currently being used. This information will help you keep up with your power needs.

Light Coverage:

Light Coverage Chart

Because keeping your camp well-lit is important, this chart shows you how many lights you have in total, how many you have active, how many lights you need, and what kind of coverage you currently have. 100% coverage is not hard to achieve with your light posts, especially once you have large or gas generators. Each building or structure that you build will require 1 light post per land unit used. So if a building takes up 5 units of land, you will need 5 light posts for that building. You will not have to have 1 light post per wall unit, but you will need light posts for each nuke that you build.

Guard Post Coverage:

Guard Post Coverage Chart

Though you can find out some basic information about guard post totals on your Defense page, you will be able to find more information through this chart. You will be able to find out how many total guard posts you have, how many staged guard posts you have, how many guard posts you need, and your current guard post coverage. Your guard post requirements will be calculated based on your camp circumference, the same one that your wall needs are based on. Obviously, you will not need as many guard posts as you will wall.

Storage Status:

Storage Status Chart

If you are ever interested in exactly how much your storage huts can hold of a given resource, you can check the chart on this page to see how much total storage space you have for each resource type and how much of that space is currently being used.

Armory Status:

Armory Status Table

To see your total storage statistics for weapons in your armories, you should look at this chart. Weapons that are assigned for defense will be stored in armories overnight along with any unassigned weapons. The stats on this page reflect the number of weapons currently unassigned as well as the number of weapons currently assigned for defense. There are displays on the Barracks, Defense, and Attack pages showing weapons in storage, but those numbers only reflect weapons that are unassigned. In this chart, you will be able to see how many spaces for each weapon type are used, how many are available, and how many total spaces you have. Just above these numbers you can see how many armories you have.

Lot Status:

Lot Status Table

To see your total storage statistics for vehicles in your lots, you should look at this chart. Vehicles that are assigned for defense will be stored in lots overnight along with any unassigned vehicles. The stats on this page reflect the number of vehicles currently unassigned as well as the number of vehicles currently assigned for defense. There are displays on the Garage, Defense, and Attack pages showing vehicles in storage, but those numbers only reflect vehicles that are unassigned. In this chart, you will be able to see how many spaces for each vehicle type are used, how many are available, and how many total spaces you have. Just above these numbers you can see how many lots you have. Obviously, since buses are not a weapon, the number on this page and the number on the Garage page will be the same. Note: You can only see mech storage stats if you are on the Military Focus Path.

Hangar Status:

Hangar Status Table

In order to see your current hangar stats, look for this chart on your Infrastructure page. Here you will be able to see how many total hangars you have. Just beneath this, you will see how many spaces have been used, how many spaces are still available, and how many spaces you have total for each plane type. Remember, choppers are stored in lots, not hangars.

Back to Top

Waste Status:

Waste Status Chart

In this chart, you will be able to get some very detailed statistics on your camp's current waste status. You will be able to see the total units of waste currently being stored by your camp, how many landfills you have, how much total landfill space you have, how many incinerators you have, how much your incinerators burn each turn, how much waste your camp produces in a turn, and how full your landfills are. Keeping a close eye on these statistics can help you avoid overflow and the associated morale drop and deaths. Remember, if your incinerators can burn more each turn than your camp produces, you will be able to burn away any waste stored in your landfills.

Communications Range:

Communications Range Chart

Because keeping your camp well covered with communications facilities and relays is necessary to keep your camp's exploring and recruiting activities on track, you can find out the basic information that you will need to know about your comm coverage here. You will be shown your total land, total comm facilities, total comm relays, the range a single relay covers, how many relays your camp needs, and your current status. This information will help you especially when you are trying to keep your comm coverage to None Needed by building the 2 extra that you are allowed. You will see the message 1 Needed Soon if you have as many comm relays as you need or if you have one more, making it a possible time for trial and error as you assign comm relays for construction. You can increase the extra that you are allowed to build at a time by researching Time Management.
