# Gatherer Flag

The Gatherer Flag is a building that doesn't require any resource to build.

It allows a beaver to gather Berries from Blueberry Bushes, Dandelions from Dandelion Bushes and Chestnuts from or Chestnut trees, which can all be planted by a Forester.

### Area of Effect

The Area of Effect for the Gatherer Flag (*on completely flat ground with zero obstructions*) is a **40x41** square with the Gatherer Flag structure occupying the center tile. A 40x41 square equals **1,640** tiles. This is the total Area of Effect for the Gatherer Flag.

Now that you know the total Area of Effect for the Gatherer Flag is 1,640 tiles you can now figure out how many of those tiles will actually benefit from the Area of Effect from the Gatherer Flag. To start, subtract **1** for the Gatherer Flag structure. This brings the tile count down to **1,639**.

The next thing to account for is Paths. Use the below linked image (Gatherer Flag Area of Effect) for reference. The Area of Effect for the Gatherer Flag extends **18** tiles above, **20** tiles right, **21** tiles below and **20** tiles left of the Gatherer Flag structure. Using these dimensions the shortest Path that can be created is **21** tiles.

So, taking what you have learned the maximum number of unoccupied tiles affected by the Area of Effect from the Gatherer Flag is **1,618**.

How was this number reached? The Area of Effect is a 40x41 square. 40x41 equals 1,640 tiles. Subtract 1 tile for the Gatherer Flag structure and the total becomes 1,639 tiles. Subtract 21 tiles for Paths and the total becomes 1.618 tiles.
