quigon jinn Posted June 7, 2010 Report Share Posted June 7, 2010 Forgive what might be a stupid question, but how exactly does DEFCON affect soldiers? [quote]DEFCON 5 - Normal peacetime military readiness. (+2 happiness, +20% initial soldier cost, [b]76% soldier efficiency[/b], tank, navy, aircraft strength in battle) DEFCON 4 - Normal military readiness, increased intelligence and strengthened security measures. (+1 happiness, +10% initial soldier cost, 81% soldier efficiency, tank, navy, aircraft strength in battle) DEFCON 3 - Increased military readiness above normal readiness. (+0 happiness, +0% initial soldier cost, 86% soldier efficiency, tank, navy, aircraft strength in battle) DEFCON 2 - Increased military readiness, but less than maximum readiness. (-1 happiness, -10% initial soldier cost, 93% soldier efficiency, tank, navy, aircraft strength in battle) DEFCON 1 - Maximum military readiness. (-2 happiness, -20% initial soldier cost, [b]100% soldier efficiency[/b], tank, navy, aircraft strength in battle) [/quote] [quote]Beside your solider counts in-game you will notice a number in parentheses such as Soldiers: 100 (135). [b]The number in parentheses beside your actual solider count is your soldier efficiency level.[/b] The soldier efficiency level indicates how well your soldiers control your population happiness and perform in battle. In the example provided here the (135) indicates that your 100 soldiers make an effective fighting force of 135 soldiers. Soldier efficiency levels are affected by certain trade agreements such as Aluminum and Pigs, improvements such as Guerrilla Camps and Barracks, certain events, and certain government types. When fighting ground battles against other nation's battle odds are based off each nation's soldier efficiency level however casualties are based off REAL soldier numbers. [/quote] I recently changed from [img]http://www.cybernations.net/images/DEFCON/DEFCON5.gif[/img] to [img]http://www.cybernations.net/images/DEFCON/DEFCON1.gif[/img] but my soldier efficiency did not change. So that has me confused about how DEFCON actually affects soldier strength. The phrase "soldier efficiency" is used all over the game to refer to modifiers for the (#) behind your soldier count, and I'm a bit confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
