I recently watched Spirit Of The Law’s farming video (AoE4 farming mechanics, tips, and civ bonuses - YouTube) and it got me thinking.
If I’m understanding correctly, each farm tile (wheat) replenishes 10 food after 75 second. This means that the absolute maximum food per minute the farm could be regenerating if all tiles are depleted is:
10/75 food per tile per second X 12 tiles X 60 seconds/min
= 96 food per minute
Could this be the AOE4 farming speed limit?!
For rice fields, the calculation is:
7.5/30 food per tile per second X 16 tiles X 60 seconds/min
= 240 food per minute!
My take away is that if there is ever something like the aoe2 256x cheat in age4, rice civs will be top-tier for farming with stacked farming techs.
