New Features ■ Context Menus ○ Most Inventories and Stockpile icons can now be right clicked for a context menu that enables new functionality ○ New workflows include: • Submit to stockpile from structure OR backpack/vehicle inventories • Submit individual items directly form a container to the stockpile • Specify specific quantities to transfer/submit using a slider interface • Much more! ○ Previous right-click functionality (stack transfer) can now be triggered with shift-left-click ■ Vehicle Logistics ○ Vehicles can now be produced, transported, and stored in Vehicle Crates (3x vehicles) ○ Vehicle Crates can be unpacked at Storage Depots using the right-click context menu ○ Vehicle Crates can be Squad Stored ■ Supply Surplus ○ Bases located in areas with less structures receive a bonus called Supply Surplus ○ Supply Surplus decreases the chances that a Garrison Supply will be consumed when decay occurs on a nearby structure ○ Supply Surplus can be Low, Medium, or High ■ Rate of Decay Tooltip ○ The decay prevention information tooltip now shows the number of Garrison Supplies that have been consumed in the last hour, making it easier to determine how many supplies are needed to maintain nearby structures ■ Base Stockpile Alerts ○ When a Base is supplied, players assigned to that base will receive an alert containing a detailed breakdown of what items were supplied, as well as the name of the supplying player ○ The alert contains a button to commend that player
