Resources are the materials that are needed to create units or buildings and to research upgrades in the Empire Earth series. Resources are collected by citizen or fishing boats.

In Empire Earth I Edit

The resources are Food, Wood, Gold, Stone and Iron. Each resource is gathered from various places on the map.

Food can be gathered from foraging patches, hunting wild animals or farming. Farms are the only resource that can be created by the player.

Wood is taken from trees. Each tree contains 500 units of wood.

Gold, Iron and Stone can be mined, and has 300,000 units as a default resource.
