**Goods** are the most common commodity to spend on unlocking research, along with supplies and coins. The primary uses for goods are:

- Trading
- Negotiating with Provinces
- Researching
- Building Great Buildings
- Producing refined / re-refined goods

There are currently 75 types of goods available, produced in goods buildings. Goods buildings leverage resources found in good deposits on the campaign map to produce a larger volume of goods than would otherwise be produced without the good deposit.

Good deposits are found in specific provinces and are randomly generated per player account. In order to use the good deposit you must first capture the province by either fighting any resistance or by negotiating with the current owner.

**Goods buildings**

Goods are produced in goods buildings. They are unlocked through Research & Technology. Goods buildings are usually very costly and require a large chunk of your population to work in the building as employees. Your population being enthusiastic does * not* enhance the production from your goods buildings.

The goods buildings share the same mechanic as that of any production building. However, the durations are notably longer and the gain is lower. It will also cost you coins and supplies (and from Modern Era on, unrefined goods) in order to use the goods building. For example, a Tier 1 goods building would require 100 coins and 100 supplies to work for 4 hours to produce the goods.

A Tier 1 goods building which is * not* enhanced by the boost of its raw material produces 1 good every 4 hours at the above cost. A building which

*enhanced with the raw material boost produces 5 goods in the same 4 hour period*
