Hello folks, like the title describes, i would like to know, how all the -ration consumption works in soldiers inc. To get more specific, i assume that adding all the resource reduction availible in game, is not the right way to calculate. I try to figure this out myself and even asked in my combine with no success. Hopefully, someone here is kind enough and bring some light in this dark room inside my head. Thanks in advance...

Sir the ration consumption is reduced by the level described by the method upgraded for reduction..For instance..ATC..Air Traffic Control tower reduces ration consumption by 85% when the tower is maxed out at level 20..The ration consumption icon in the Training Center reduces ration consumption according to the level that it is upgraded to..ie level 80 reduces ration consumption by another 8%..Please note that this would be 8% of the 15% that the ATC does not cover

Hello again and thank you for your reply. I may be a little behind here but i still dont completely understand this. Let me bring up an example, lets assume we have every building up to max level that specifically reduced ration consumption. That is, 6x landing zones 12% ration consumption, ATC (air traffic control) 85%, training center 8%, 2x ramstein equipment 4% and the HQ with 20%. Now adding all those togheter would make a sum of 129% reduction in ration consumption. This clearly cant be the way it is calculated. So once again, i would please you to explain in a way, that even a child can understand.

Sir..Let me try to explain this way..Say you have units that has a ration consumption of 1000p/h..You build your Air Traffic Control tower and begin upgrading to max level..The ATC will reduce that 1000 rats p/h by 85%..making your units consume only 150 p/h..Then you level up another building , which carries a 20% reduction...the 20% comes off from the 150, not the 1000..the reduction is calculated by what your consumption is ..that makes rats consumption 120..every reduction comes off the balance of your rat consumption..Please note, do not confuse ration reduction with ration production..they are 2 different things..One increases what your base produces while the other reduces what your units consume
