Villager Estimations

A villager collects roughly 1 resource every 3 seconds, so e.g. the 800 food for Castle age take 2 minutes to collect if you dedicate 20 villagers to it. In general it takes 3*F/V seconds for V villagers to collect F food (or any other resource). I think this number is a slight overestimation if the collection point is close, underestimation if it’s far.
