Settlement Leaders can set a Target Settlement Level, and the settlement will pay one-half of the difference between the upkeep paid for its structures and the minimum required for that Settlement Level (roughly doubled from current requirements to match with only paying one-half of the difference). Settlements can wind up higher than the target if the requirements for the structures alone put them above the target.

Lets see if this is what I missed:

*I set my settlement at "Target 20"
*I have 15 structures in it that are all +3
*To stay at my target support level, I need to pay 1/2 the difference between upkeep for +3 buildings and +5 buildings in addition to upkeep for +3 buildings
*If that isn't in the vaults, the computer will try and find a lower "Support level" which I can pay for.

On Monday mornings, the settlement sums the upkeep requirements for all the settlement structures. If the basic upkeep requirements are already high enough to cover the Target Settlement Level, then it sets the Next Upkeep Settlement Level to the highest level already met. If not, it raises all the upkeep requirements by one-third of the difference to Target Settlement Level requirements and sets the Resulting Settlement Level to the Target Settlement Level. If there are enough resources in the Settlement Upkeep vault to pay that amount (including the 4-1 exchanges), then payment is made, any structures shut down for lack of upkeep are reactivated, and the Settlement Level is set to the Next Upkeep Settlement Level. If there aren’t enough resources, then payment isn’t made and the settlement is shut down, with a Settlement Level of 9. This also results in an email being sent to all active settlement leaders.

Just trying to grasp these things.

This means that I may set my Support level at 20 but if I only have… lets say a +3 Garrison then I will have to pay 1/3 the bulk and coin upkeep between a +3 Garrison and a +5 Garrison in addition to a +3 garrison, etc. for all other structures, to keep things working at support 20?

So… on the Wiki, are the listings under the DI columns(Settlement Structures tab) supposed to be DI "required amount banked" for structures and the amount of DI "generated" for infrastructure buildings?

Exactly right. I should probably break those out into separate columns at some point, but didn't want to mess with that quite yet. They've been listed in the same columns for a long time and I didn't want to break anyone's parsing tools without warning. Instead, I just adjusted the numbers a bit for now.
Great. I'm not losing IT yet! smile

Edit: Are you sure that all this is complicated enuf?

Just want to post a thank you to you guys for getting the basic info posted about DI and stuff! smile

And to do it without cluttering those actual threads.

I will re-read them until they start to make sense smile

Very granular. Very cool. Thank you! smile

Edit: I am a little surprised that there isn't some taxation right as players pick coin off of mobs. Thinking it over, I can see how that could get really messy in many ways.

These are great incentives for any settlement that can "get it together" for the next cpl and 1/2 weeks. smile

Are these replacements an early start? If wiped out tonight, will those hexes be starting Stage 2 after tomorrow maintenance?

Raids are all even lower than the stuff listed in Stage 1, so clearing those out will get you a Stage 1 escalation tomorrow morning. Putting those in guaranteed that something tougher wouldn't magically appear between then and now, and raids can be cleared pretty quickly.
Hmmm… Okay, thanks for replying.

Edit: I get it now. You are giving us an easier chance to have "empty" hexes at maintenance up as is one qualifier to start the process. My thanks, Sir.

Nice! A little competition to motivate us. I like it! smile
