I have the bad habit of making too many of these guys.

Fan of Age of Empires II and to a lesser extent Age of Empires. Very casual fan of Mythology and III.

I'm not the best player in practice (too easily overwhelmed), but am passionate about this series.

To Do List[edit | edit source]

Food/Wood Ratios from Farms

Civilization Standard Chinese Sicilians Teutons
Farm 2.92 3.67 2.92 4.86
Farm + Horse Collar 4.17 4.92 5.42 6.94
Farm + Heavy Plow 6.25 7.00 9.58 10.42
Farm + Crop Rotation 9.17 N/A 15.42 15.28

Dark Age Eco Bonuses[edit | edit source]

The following is an estimate of the value of Dark Age economic bonuses. Note that it is based on a model where a player ends up with 25 Villagers, 5 Houses, 5 Eco buildings, 1 Barracks, and 2 Farms, with Loom also being researched.

Civilization Food Wood Gold Total Resources
Celts 0 138 0 138
Incas 89 50 0 139
Indians 110 0 0 110
Japanese 0 250 0 250
Lithuanians 150 0 0 150
Malians 0 121 0 121
Persians 50 50 0 100
Slavs 0 25 0 25
Tatars 0 120* 0 120
Teutons 0 48 0 48

The Tatar 120 Wood savings is baased on the assumption that the extra 350-ish Food from Sheep is equivalent to the 2 farms, so one does not need to build those two Farms, saving the Wood.
