Production

To grow and prosper, your dominion must produce certain resources. This is your economy. There are seven different resources to produce, with platinum being the most important as it is used for training, building, rezoning and exploring.

Platinum

Platinum is produced by two factors: peasants and Alchemies. Every employed peasant produces 2.7 platinum per hour and every Alchemy produces 45 platinum per hour. A dominion's raw (unmodified) platinum production is hence:

[(Employed peasants) * 2.7] + (Alchemies * 45)

Possible bonuses to platinum production are:

All bonuses - except for Firewalker Alchemist Flame - are put together and then applied to the raw production. For example, a dominion with 50,000 employed peasants, 500 alchemies, 14.21% Keep, Tomb of Kings and Midas Touch on would have the following platinum production:

(600*45+50000*2.7) * (1+(14.21+5+10)/100) = 209320

How to increase

Building alchemies is a quick solution but is only recommended during protection or while exploring if jobs are needed and Guard Towers or Diamond Mines not a part of one's strategy. Most often, one's platinum production is low due to not having enough peasants to fill all jobs, which is remedied by building homes or barracks. The purpose of the barracks is to move military units out of the homes and make room for more peasants and hence more jobs filled.

Royal and Elite Guard

It costs 2% of your platinum production to be a member of the guard. This penalty is applied by subtracting 2 from the bonus. The platinum production of the dominion in the above example would, if the dominion is in Royal or Elite Guard, be:

(600*45+50000*2.7) * (1+(14.21+5+10-2)/100) = 206080

Food

Food is produced primarily by farms but also by docks. How much food farms produce varies between rulesets. Assuming Base Ruleset, raw (unmodified) food production is:

Farms*80+Docks*35

Food decays by 1% of the previous hour's stockpile every hour.

Possible bonuses to food production are:

All bonuses, except prestige, are added up and added to the raw production. Prestige is then multiplied unto the modified production. As such, a dominion with 250 farms, 20 docks, 8% Irrigation, +15% racial bonus, Gaia's Watch on and 800 prestige would have the following hourly production of food:

(250*80+20*35) * (1+(8+15+10)/100) * (1+(800/250*1.02)/100) = 28429

How to increase

Most easily and commonly, build more farms and cast Gaia's Watch. Increasing bonuses is a long-term solution. Docks are not intended as a sole source of food, but is more of a bonus and designed to help attackers that need boats.

A dominion can be subjected to starvation if it runs out of food.

Lumber

Lumber is produced solely from lumberyards (LYs). The amount of lumber LYs produce varies between rulesets. Assuming Base Ruleset, raw (unmodified) lumber production is:

(Lumberyards)*50

Lumber rots by 1% of the previous hour's stockpile every hour.

Possible bonuses to lumber production are:

All bonuses are added up and added to the raw production. Hence, under the Base Ruleset, a Wood Elf with 3000 LYs and Gaia's Blessing on would produce:

3000*50*(1+(10+10)/100) = 180000

How to increase

Build more LYs. If Wood Elf, cast Gaia's Blessing.

Ore

Ore is produced solely from ore mines (OMs). Each OM produces 60 ore, making raw (unmodified) ore production:

(Ore Mines)*60

Ore does not rot or decay.

Possible bonuses to ore production are:


All bonuses are added up and added to the raw production. A dominion with 1000 OMs, Gnomish Mining Machine and Fruits of Labor would have the following ore production:

1000*60*(1+(30+20)/100)) = 90000

How to increase

Build more OMs or take Gnomish Mining Machine. If Dwarf, cast Miner's Sight.

Gems

Gems are produced by diamond mines (DMs) and their purpose is to be invested into the castle. Raw (unmodified) gem production is:

(Diamond Mines)*15

Possible bonuses to gem production are:

All bonuses are added up and added to the raw production. A Gnome with 300 DMs would produce the following amount of gems per hour:

300*15*(1+5/100) = 4725

How to increase

Build more DMs.

Mana

Mana is produced by Towers and each Tower produces 25 mana per hour. Production formula is hence:

(Towers)*25

Mana is drained by 2% of the previous hour's stockpile every hour.

Possible bonuses to mana production are:

All bonuses are added up and added to the raw production. Under Base Ruleset, a Dark Elf with 500 Towers would have the following hourly production of mana:

500*25*(1+5/100) = 13125

How to increase

Build more Towers.

Research Points

This is not yet implemented.

Research points (RPs) are used for teching and they are produced or obtain through two ways: by building Schools or attacking (see also atteching). For every conquered acre of land, one gains RPs according to this formula:

(Conquered acres) * max([(Days into the round)/3], 10)

The max() means that one gains the maximum value of (Days into the round)/3 or 10 per conquered acre (this includes generated/discovered acres). As such, past day 30 of the round, RP gains by attacking goes up and peaks at 16.6667 on day 50. This number is increased by 50% in the Base Ruleset.

The formula for schools is as follows:

Either (Schools/2) or Schools * (1 - (Schools/Land)) whichever is higher.

The only possible bonus to research point production is from the Ancient Library or Halls of Knowledge during Tech Rounds. The +10% bonus applies both to RPs gained from conquered acres and RPs produced by schools.

How to increase

Attack more or build more schools, but mind the formula. It is not wise to have more than 40% schools because after this point, the RPs undergo diminishing returns. Additionally, you will lack space for other crucial buildings.
