MPPs in occupied cities

Okay, here's a stupid question...

I've been playing the demo, but have never paid much attention to how many points we get from occupying a city. Do we get full value?

Unlike resource hexes, shouldn't occupied cities have a low return of MPPs? Perhaps they do, but I'm at work, and can't fire-up the game... (or shouldn't as I'd never get anything done at all)

My fear is that MPPs, as an abstraction don't reflect the manpower drain suffered by each combatant, and that if we're getting "full-boat" on captured cities, we're edging close to the RTS convention of gathering resources with no constraints.

IIRC, both Germany and even Russia were having issues with manpower towards the end of the conflict. I'm not sure about the others.

As to industrial output, maybe a grog could comment on how well occupied factories performed.

Well, had to post something... hope this is worthy of everyone's noodle. smile.gif
