# Scavenger Flag

### Area of Effect

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

Now that you know the total Area of Effect for the Scavenger 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 Scavenger Flag. To start, subtract **1** for the Scavenger Flag structure. This brings the tile count down to **1,639**.

The next thing to account for is Paths. Use the below linked image (Scavenger Flag Area of Effect) for reference. The Area of Effect for the Scavenger Flag extends **18** tiles above, **20** tiles right, **21** tiles below and **20** tiles left of the Scavenger 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 Scavenger 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 Scavenger Flag structure and the total becomes 1,639 tiles. Subtract 21 tiles for Paths and the total becomes 1.618 tiles.
