Generating resource in evony

In evony online game , resource generation is the most important of all tasks. A player who take generate resource at a very high rate can produce and feed a more larger army than the other players. The most important resource that you need to have is food, lumber and iron.
In evony , resource can be generated in three ways

  1. producing resource in the resource fields of your city
  2. plundering npc's regulerly
  3. plundering other players city

Among the three methods the first two are most effective and regular way of getting resource. Plundering other players city will give you resource for first few days of the game play, after that most of the players who will survive will be able to build strong defenses and plundering them regularly will become difficult.
So you have to reply more upon the first 2 methods. I am describing the process of how you can maximize the resource generation using the first 2 methods in evony online game.
In evony, when you will start building army, very quickly you will realize that feeding a very large army is the most difficult task. Trying to feed a large army from the food generated from the farms is impossible. After one month of game play , most players have (-)1million food requirement for troop upkeep. That means , every hour your troops will eat 1million food more than what you can produce, every hour. In the beginning most players try to build more farms and conquer more lakes to meet up the requirement. But, as the army grows larger it no longer remains possible to feed them by producing food in the farms. In this situation the only way to get enough food is to plundering npc's or barberian cities regulerly.

Getting resource from barbarian cities

Barbarian cities or npc's are cities generarated by the evony system. These cities always generated resource at high speed. You can hit these cities and take all the resource it has. It continues to regenerate resource back and become fully regenerated after 8 hours. So , you can hit them repeatedly every 8 hours and get those resources again and again.These cities are categorised into level 1 to level 10 . The higher the level the more amount of resource it gives you. The best part of hitting barbarian city is if you hit npc's less than level 6 with ballistas and transporters with following proper method then you can defeat them with loosing a single unit which is called as lossless hits. Barberian cities above level 5 always gives you some losses as they have defensive trebuchets .

Generating resource in your own city

As you can can see the chart , npc's mostly give you food and don't give as much lumber , stone and iron. So, you have to generate these resources from your minefield in your city. among these resources stone is not as much needed and you can buy stone from the market at a very cheap rate. So it is mostly advised that you delete all the farms and stone mines and replace them with sawmills and iron mines.
To increase the production rate at higher levels you should capture valleys like forest and hills. Forests increase the production rate of lumber and hills increase the production rate of irons. These valleys increases the production rate at a percentage rate of the basic production rate. So , if the basic production rate of lumber in your city is 100k /hour and you capture a level 10 forest(which increases the lumber production rate by 23%) then the total production rate of lumber becomes 123k in that city. Nice.
This is where comes the utility of creation of lumber city and iron city. A lumber city is a city where all the mines are sawmills and similarly iron city is a city where all the resource fields are iron mines. This increase the basic production rate of a particular recourse to a very high level. Now, conquer as many forest as possible from your lumber city and as many hills as possible from your iron city.

I really like that you give information, but you don't really say how to go about capturing resources or attacking cities. I hope you might edit this to include some examples on how to attack or capture (i.e. number of troops needed)
