|Supply Drop Zone|
The Supply Drop Zone was an advanced American support structure that helped to bring in extra battlefield funds to American commanders.
To build the Supply Drop Zone, US generals had to have already constructed a Strategy Center. The Supply Drop Zone was a large drop-off point that allowed US (or any) commanders in control to periodically receive supply crates (modelled after UN supply crate) from C-130 Hercules transport aircraft. Supplies were processed immediately upon landing.
A large amount of money was dropped off on each delivery, with the Supply Drop Zone paying for itself on the second delivery. However, the structure also consumed ridiculously high base power resources (to power up complex communication center which provide a secured way to arrange the dropping, integral supply center, and facility to retrieve cargo) and the delay between supply drops was a potential weakness when compared to the continuous, steady funds that could be delivered by China's Hackers or the GLA's Black Market.
|The Supply Lines upgrade at the Strategy Center increases profit generated by the Supply drop zone by 10%.|
When built, the Supply Drop Zone will call in a plane full of supplies every two minutes. A complete load of supplies is worth $1500 once dropped.
- The Supply Drop Zone used to be a tech building. A duplicate model file including the "tech building" flag exists in the game files. It was later given to the American faction instead.
- If the structure is destroyed before the crates have landed, they become free for anyone to take.
- Crates can sometimes miss the zone, force the player to take it manually.
- If there are buildings near the supply drop zone, some of the supply crates may fall on them and be collected.
