Troops require food.  Even if you win a “mechanics battalion” on the wheel of fortune, you won’t want to “apply” it until you know you can feed the troops! Many newbies have turned in their mechanics battalion only to find they suddenly were starving because they didn’t have enough food production to keep them. (Or food stored from looting/buying on the market.)

The amount of food you produce will show as either a green number or a red number.  Red means you are using more food to feed your troops than you are currently making.  This number will change if your troops are marching to war. When they march to war they bring food with them so your food production may look like it’s a positive (green) number.  However if you look at the number when your troops are back you might be generating less food than you need (red.)

I don’t worry about food too much as it is easy (and cheap) to purchase on the market.

    I have a little tip for those who have applied their Mechanics Battalion and are now watching their troops slowing starve.

    Dismiss an amount of the battalion so that you are around 5k in the green. This will also give you substantial boosts into your other resources such as Lumber, Iron, and Stone(I think Food as well).

    Thus you keep some of the Battalion without your troops starving. It is a sacrifice that must be made in order to save your army.

    If you get a Mechanics Battalion early in the game you should apply it, just keep the ballista and disband the rams and cats. You won’t need them until later in the game and the resources you aquire by disbanding them can be put to better use building warriors, archers and transports. This will also give you the ability to start attacking NPCs w/o a Lvl 9 rax. The quicker you can farm NPCs, the better off you will be.

    If you can start hitting NPC, don’t worry about the food.
    For example, you need about 10-20 ballista to hit a lvl 1 NPC with no loss BUT REMEMBER, you need transports too. So with a lvl 6 barracks, build some transports (need to have 40+ to hit an NPC -more for higher lvls)

    IF you have the transports, AND you have lvl1/2 NPC’s near you AND you have arch 5/6 AND you are willing to give it a go. Apply the Mechanics battalion and start farming! I did and it is great!

    Just wait ’til you are farming lvl 8 npc cuz you can get 48mil food/day from each. Also in ageII you can just donate the catapults for 60k prestige if you’ve got 200 of ’em. Additionally, in ageII you do not need a barrack to dismiss
