Before I talk about my specific issue, I have to say that the GOLD version is one of the greatest games ever made. It ranks up there with Civ IV, Galactic Civ, Sins of a Solar Empire.
On the Phillip Campaign, I captured the city of "Scordisci."
Scordisci has 3 farms. The farms produce 35 food units each in the Autumn and 6 food units in the Early Spring.
I keep 2 "1st tribal javileers mercenaries" to quell the population. Each mercenary requires 6 food for a total of 12 units consumed.
If my math is correct, I should produce 105 in the Autumn and consume 12, for a net GAIN of 93.
In early Spring, 18 produced, 12 consumed. Net GAIN 6.
Yet, I am ALWAYS running out of food in this town even though the "Net Supply Transfer line" says POSITIVE 40.
This is problem ONE.
Potential bug 2.
After seeing that the 3 farms are FULL of food, it is apparent that the supply lines are not working. Even though all 3 farms are well within the "gold circle" So I clicked on the farm and right click on the city and the city fills up with food. I am only able to do this with 2 of the 3 farms. For the 3rd farm I get "no free supply node."
The potential bug here is that I shouldn't have to create a "supply node" since I'm within the golden circle.
