    I'm new to Sim Settlements and have only installed the core mod and Industrial Revolution so far. I've watched the Quick Start series for these, read the Wiki and working things out as I go, but I can't figure out what the little icons to the right of some of the bars on the HUD are and what they mean.

    Are they brahmin? I assume they are part of the RotC expansion but could someone let me know what they mean so I don't have to watch all of the videos until I'm ready to play that expansion?

    Means being fed by supply line.

    Is the supply line feature automatic? I thought you had to actually establish a provisioner before your settlements would get supplied from other, remote ones. I've seen the bramin icon long before I had that perk, and definitely when I hadn't yet established a provisioner.

    As far as I'm aware RotC doesn't assign anyone to be provisioners. Not even as part of a city plan.

    However it can be somewhat automatic if you have IDEK's Logistics Station addon and automatic assignments enabled in the Sim Settlements settings. It's an industrial plot and whoever gets assigned to it will act as a provisioner. The station will also automatically decide where to send its provisioner. Even if you don't have a provisioner in the settlement where you see the icon, it could be a provisioner coming from another settlement.

    Was it long a go? The 3.0 release had a bug that showed the miniature brahims even if the provisioner links wasn't set up. Got fixed in one or the other releases since then.

    It's so typical but literally the next kinggath video I watched explained it (the pre-RotC patch video) - but thanks for letting me know as it helped my gameplay last night.

    Actually, it has happened all along. Just today my new character took Starlite and set up a community. It was short on food, and I saw the brahmin icon even though she only has CHA 5 and doesn't have the Leadership perk. I haven't set up any Idek stations, nor have the ability to establish supply lines yet. ??

    @Harry Young this might need to go back into the bugs tree
