glad to help. the biggest problem I was having was with the relationship between gold and other resources such as when you dont have enough wood production how much gold it subtracts from overall gold accumulation per minute. It didn't get into specifics unfortunately.
update : I was paying attention to my gold production and I think I found the ratio. While upgrading my barracks to a supply post (netting back +1 resource in stone, wood, and iron) my gold went from +13 to +19 (I was in the negative on all three). So it seems that every resource has a 3:1 ratio if you fall in the negative. Regrettably you cannot gain gold with surplus in any resource so its worth keeping an eye on to maximize gold while staying positive in the rest of your resources.

I think the cost is 1 gold for stone, 2 for wood, 3 for iron and 5 for mana.
The only real resource is gold so I usually don't think much about going negative in the other resources unless it's impacting my economy too much. It's easy to fall behind in troops and conquest if you're staring yourself blind on always trying to have enough of all the resources.

Also can't you see this by hovering your mouse marker over the resource numbers at the top?

I've been playing the Kohan games since they came out but as I said I don't think much about this so I'm not sure. :P

Oh and if you play Kohan 2: KoW you HAVE to lose a lot of gold by going negative. Otherwise you can never have enough troops to win if the game go into mid time.

y'know, I've never tried hovering my mouse over. I'll give it a look. I'm already on Ahriman's Gift, as soon as I get through the campaigns I'll be going to 2, but maybe they all wor by th same thing.

I just checked in Kohan: Ahriman's Gift and there you can hover your mouse over the resources at the top and if one of them is negative you see how much you lose. It should be the same in Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns.

Kohan 2 plays a lot different. It's more hectic, combat oriented, you need to get a good gold flow early and start pumping out troops. Everything is faster.
In the first two games it's a good strategy (Against the AI in skirmish.) to get one settler and one good combat company quickly, forget about getting a good economy (Unless you're playing nationalists.) and use the combat company to take independent and enemy cities and do some monster lair destroying. Then your economy will soon get better. Maybe some cheap scout companies too if you play with fog of war.

In Kohan 2 you have to get a couple money producing cities very quickly before pumping out troops. Otherwise you'll get too far behind economically. Make your first two or three cities money producers and your third or forth a troop city. Also have a couple cheap and fast companies with Kohans raiding monster lairs for money and taking over various buildings until they get too outclassed or there aren't any easy targets left.
Basically play as The Nationalists in the first two games and you'll manage until you've got used to the difference.
