The Settlers Online Gold Production Maximization Guide by Seanery

Here’s some baisc info on the gold production and related stuff:
+ Each gold mine orginally has 300 gold ores
+ A gold mine produces one gold ore every 12 min at lv1
+ A gold smelter produces one gold bar for 2 gold ores every 12 min at lv1
+ A coinage produces one coin for 4 gold bars every 24 min at lv1
+ The best ratio for the gold production is 1 coinage/2 gold smelters (2 coal mines)/4 gold mines
+ You can buy a golden parrot for 75 gems to increase 500 gold ores on a deposit.
+ You can buy a treasure chest for 350 gems to get 100 coins.
+ Friend’s buffs duration is increased by 50%

1. Normal production

300 gold ores = 150 gold bars = 37.5 coins
37.5 coins x 24 min = 660 min/60 = 11 hours

You get 1 coin for every 8 gold ores from a normal production. That means you get 37.5 coin for 300 gold ores in 11 hours.

Conclusion: This production is NOT recommended for any players.

2. x2 output production

300 gold ores x2 = 300 gold bars x2 = 150 coins x2 = 300 coins
150 coins x 24 min = 3600 min/60 = 60 hours
(300 gold ores x 12 min) + (300 gold bars x 12 min) + (150 coins x 24 min) = 10800 min/60 = 180 hours/6 = 30 baskets

You get 1 coin for every gold ore from a x2 output production. That means you get 300 coins for 300 gold ores in 60 hours and you need 30 baskets or 90 sandwiches or 360 fish platters.

Conclusion: You pay 30 baskets to receive 262.5 coins in 49 hours (compares to a normal production). This production is highly recommended for non-gem buyers.

Note: The best ratio for this production is 1 coinage:1 gold smelter:1 gold mines

3. x3 output production

300 gold ores x3 = 450 gold bars x3 = 337.5 coins x3 = 1012.5 coins
337.5 coins x 24 min = 8100 min/60 = 135 hours
(300 gold ores x 12 min) + (450 gold bars x 12 min) + (337.5 coins x 24 min) = 17100 min/60 = 285 hours/24 = ~12 Red flying settlers = 2388 gems
2388 gems/350 = ~6.82 treasure chests x100 = 682 coins

You get 3.375 coins for every gold ore from a x3 output production. That means you get 1012.5 coins for 300 gold ores in 135 hours and you need 12 red flying settlers (2388 gems).

Conclusion: You pay 2388 gems to receive 712.5 coins in 75 hours (compares to a x2 output production). However, you can get 682 coins instantly from the shop with 2388 gems. This production is NOT recommended.

4. Friend’s buff x3 output production

300 gold ores x3 = 450 gold bars x3 = 337.5 coins x3 = 1012.5 coins
337.5 coins x 24 min = 8100 min/60 = 135 hours
(300 gold ores x 12 min) + (450 gold bars x 12 min) + (337.5 coins x 24 min) = 17100 min/60 = 285 hours/36 = ~8 Red flying settlers = 1592 gems
1592 gems/350 = ~4.54 treasure chests x100 = 454 coins

You get 3.375 coins for every gold ore from a friend’s buff x3 output production. That means you get 1012.5 coins for 300 ores in 135 hours and you need 8 red flying settlers (1592 gems).

Conclusion: You pay 1592 gems to receive 712.5 coins in 75 hours. You can only get 454 coins with 1592 gems if you buy treasure chests. This production is highly recommended for gem buyers.

Note: if you have a very limited amount of gems, you can buy golden parrots instead. You’ll get 500 coins in 100 hours from a golden parrot with a x2 output production.

    Pointless gold guide. If you have gems, then sell noble deeds to high ranking players with no more building licenses but need a higher population for adventures. They sell for 200gc a piece. At 95 gems a noble deed, for the 1582 gems you would spend getting 712.5gc from this guide would get you 3351 gold coins from noble deed sales. Best bang for your buck in my opinion. I have had no trouble finding buyers for them and now have a list of people trying to buy from me whenever I have any spare gems.

    Peace.
