Production management - Growth rate fix

  • Growth rate in specific resource (lumber in my case) is negative and I cannot turn it positive. As a result shortage has occured in all my provinces and this affects morale. How I can solve it?

  • Buying a resource for silver. If there is no silver, then you can play on the exchange: sell the resource that you have in abundance at a bargain price on the exchange. Use the proceeds to buy the resource you need. You can also exchange resources with your allies / neutral countries. Players quite often agree to such exchanges.


    You can reduce the consumption of steel in the "resources" section, then the production of timber should increase. In addition, buildings are used to produce resources. For example, a railway gives an increase in the production of the resource in which it is built. It's the same with factories ...

    Really useful information. But here's my problem. It's impossible to increase lumber growth rate. I reduce steel growth rate but I still get a negative number.


    Also, what is the amount of lumber I should buy in order to overcome shortage? I should do it every day? What is the appropriate moment of the day to do so?

    Hover over the tree. It should be written to you in how many hours your supply of wood will run out. Buy the resource when you leave the game about your business, for example, sleep. This should be done so that at night your country does not suffer from a shortage of wood, otherwise a loss of fighting spirit will begin, which is not good


    I repeat; you can cover the cost of buying wood by selling other resources. In one of the matches I had no coal at all. I was selling grain and using the money I received to buy coal. This is how I solved my problem. I hope I described everything in detail and clearly

  • You should really, really peruse the manual: https://forum.supremacy1914.com/index.php?game-manual/


    These are game basics here, you obviously don't produce enough or possbly no lumber at all. Sometimes you can't get everything into the green, that's the way it works, half the time that's why you go to war. These economic forces are a major aspect of gameplay and the cause of much action. How they work should become reasonably clear from the manual.

  • You were both very clear. Understood. Buying ang selling in stock market to cover shortage is the key. The thing is that you have to reserve money to make upgrades (infastructure and military). So, you have to find a balance between those two. Just for the record, which factor wheighs more negatively on ranking? Having a shortage in resources or making upgrades at a very slow pace?

  • Since of the two, only province upgrades will count towards your ranking that would be your direct concern. Since however resource shortages will negatively impact all of your gameplay in various ways, they are certainly a hinderance to constructing vast amounts of upgrades.
