Has anyone ever ran out of food on campaign. What happens ? Do you start to lose troops ? or lose polulation? Or can your troops not move from provence to provence or do they have to break of an occupation and have to retreat?

What does the design team say ?

The PDF manual says that troops will desert.

Just had that happen as the Prussians, when assaulting the Russian Capital. Was forced to Retreat and put ALL my troops in the Academy's. I had 30,000 b4 moving to Attack but I had to keep all my other armies out on the defensive vs other nations. After that I built Storage wharehouses in all my provinces just so I could use the Subsidised Farms etc to Increase it asap. Came back later to take Russia once and for all.

Thanks, now I know, I ve been close to starvation but always managed to keep my head above water. Its a real pain managing the food levels but its a good feature, especially on the attack that definately adds to the strategy of the game

not only that, if food is not enough, the system starts to license your units in order to reduce food consumption
