Anno 1800: Production Chains Guide

Anno 1800 Production Chains Guide

This is going to be a simplified guide on one of the biggest questions I had starting out – Production chains.

We all heard in the beginning how many brick factories can be supported by 1 clay pit and that left me with the question of yes, but what else? How many?

Other Anno 1800 Guides:

Basic Guidelines

To better understand what I’ll be writing below here is an informative explanation with a complicated (but we can all agree on – mandatory in our lives) production chain: Beer!

Beer
2 Grain Farm > 1 Malthouse (Input 2 grain, Output 2 Malt/min)
1 Malthouse + 3 Hop Farms > 2 Breweries (Input 1 Malt + 1 Hop, Output 1 Beer)
Hop Farm explanation: 1 Hop farm – 0.667 hop/min, 3 Hop Farms – 2 hop/min (Supports 2 breweries)
Supports 1300 Workers OR 975 Artisans OR 750 Oberos (New World)

The numbers before the building name indicate how many buildings are required of each type for a 100% efficient production chain per minute.

So 2 Grain Farms produce enough Grain for 1 Malthouse at 100% efficiency
1 Malthouse along with 3 Hop Farms produce enough for 2 Breweries to work at 100% efficiency

The Input and Output are PER 1 BUILDING.
So when it says for example (Input 1 Malt + 1 Hop, Output 1 Beer) This is for a single Brewery.

Hope this helps to better understand.

Farmers

Timber
1 Lumberjack’s hut > 1 Sawmill (Input 4 Wood, Output 4 Timber/min)

Fish
1 Fishery (No Input, Output 2 Fish/min)
Supports up to 800 Farmers & Workers

Schnapps
1 Potato Farm > 1 Schnapps Distillery (Input 2 Potatoes, Output 2 Schnapps/min)
Supports up to 600 Farmers & Workers

Work Clothes
1 Sheep Farm > 1 Framework Knitters (Input 2 Wool, Output 2 Work Clothes/min)
Supports up to 650 Farmers & Workers

Workers

Bricks
1 Claypit > 2 Brick Factories (Input 1 Clay, Output 1 Brick/min)

Sausages
1 Pig Farm > 1 Slaughterhouse (Input 1 Pig, Output 1 Sausage/min) Wonders who eats the rest
Supports up to 1000 Workers OR 750 Artisans (25% less)

Sails
1 Sheep Farm > 1 Sailmakers (Input 2 Wool, Output 2 Sails/min)

Bread (This is where things start to become messy)
2 Grain Farm > 1 Flour Mill (Input 2 Grain, Output 2 Flour/min)
1 Flour Mill > 2 Bakery (Input 1 Flour, Output 1 Bread/min)
Supports up to 1100 Workers OR 825 Artisans (Again 25% less, just take this as a rule of thumb)

Soap
2 Pig Farms > 2 Rendering Works (Input 1 Pig, Output 1 Tallow/min)
2 Rendering Works > 1 Soap Factory (Input 2 Tallow, Output 2 Soap/min)
Supplies up to 4800 Workers OR 3600 Artisans

Steel Beams
1 Iron Mine + 2 Charcoal Kiln/Coal > 2 Furnaces (Input 2 Iron + 2 Coal, Output 2 Steel/min)
2 Furnaces > 3 Steelwork (Input 1.3 Steel, Output 1.3 Steel beams/min)
Wait what?? 1.3 a minute?
Explanation: Steelworks produce 1 Steel Beam per 00:45 seconds, this means 2 per 1:30 so 1.3 per 1 minute. This is the math if you see any ugly numbers in the future.

Weapons
1 Iron Mine + 2 Charcoal Kiln/Coal > 2 Furnaces (Input 2 Iron + 2 Coal, Output 2 Steel/min)
2 Furnaces > 6 Weapon Factory (Input 0.667 Steel, Output 0.667 Weapon/min)

Tip: 1 Steelworks + 1 Weapon Factory use 2 Steel per min, This means 1 Furnace is enough for both factories (Input 2 Steel, Output 1.3 Steel beam + 0.667 Weapon/min)

Beer
2 Grain Farm > 1 Malthouse (Input 2 grain, Output 2 Malt/min)
1 Malthouse + 3 Hop Farms > 2 Breweries (Input 1 Malt + 1 Hop, Output 1 Beer)
Hop Farm explanation: 1 Hop farm – 0.667 hop/min, 3 Hop Farms – 2 hop/min (Supports 2 breweries)
Supports 1300 Workers OR 975 Artisans OR 750 Oberos (New World)
