Rise of Nations also offers a very different resource gathering model than other real time strategy titles. Instead of simply assigning an arbitrary number of civilians to woodcutting of a forest, a maximum number can be assigned to a resource gathering facility. This makes civilians much more efficient and easier to manage. Secondly, unlike other strategy titles, Rise of Nations makes is easier to predict the income of resources. In other strategy titles, resources simply increase by arbitrary amounts as peasants return resources to the drop off facility. In Rise of Nations, an indicator is given as to how much of a resource is being gathered of a specific resource per one third minute. The game also implements a maximum gathering limit for each resource per one third minute, which can be increased by doing research at the library. This resource gathering limit is designed to help balance the game and avoid wars where resources are not an issue, something that has been needed in this type of game for a long time.
