Maps can differ in the number and types of raw material sites they have. A map’s climate may also play a factor as to what types of sites are most likely to be there. The types of raw material sites are:
- Mines (Ore)
- Forests (Wood)
- Quarries (Stone)
- Fish schools (Fish)
Once collected, all Raw Materials are interchangeable and go into the same stockpile. Raw Materials are used primarily to purchase units and buildings.
A player must build a Warehouse adjacent to a Raw Material site in order to begin collecting the resource. Warehouses have three workers to start, but additional workers can be purchased by filling the slots in the Warehouse. Each additional worker costs more than the one previously purchased for that building.
