As this is calculable by looking at the board during a game, I've compiled a cheat sheet for the number of Buildings + Technologies that require a given resource.

The factories are listed in descending order by potential output, followed by relative number of eras they could be in play. As a general guideline, this shows income potential, but is variable by game depending on the order of tiles drawn & played.

4-players:
==========
Ziegel 7
Holz 7
Zement 7
Stein 6
Keramik 5
Eisen 5
Stahl 5
Computer 5
Glas 4
Strom 4
Kunststoff 4

3-players:
==========
Ziegel 7
Holz 7
Stein 6
Zement 5
Keramik 4
Eisen 4
Stahl 4
Glas 3
Strom 2
Computer 1
Kunststoff 1

Would be good to note how many of each resource tile there are on the same sheet. For instance, there are two Zement tiles, so a player building the Zementwerk cannot expect to be paid the full 7.

As stated, this merely shows income potential. It would be very rare, like you said, to be paid the maximum.

The resource tiles available in each era are posted on the board, and they range from 1 to 3 instances of occurrence. This is much easier to induce mid-game and their effect on income potential of any given factory will be much more variable given their dual use.

I think merely listing them would be over-simplifying some of the subtleties that make this game great.

That said, here is a list of Resource Tiles and which era they occur in.

Era I
Holz
Stein

Era II
Glas
Eisen

Era III
Stahl
Zement
Zement

Era IV
Kunststoff
Computer

Era V
Computer
Zement


Zement occurs 3 times.
Computer occurs 2 times.
Ziegel does not occur.
Strom does not occur.
Keramik does not occur.
All other resources occur 1 time.

I've just noticed that you are using the German ressource terms - so do you have the German version, not the UK one?

Just in case you are interested:
Ziegel =brick
Holz =wood(also timer/lumber)
Zement =cement
Stein =stone
Keramik =ceramics
Eisen =iron
Stahl =steel
Computer =computer
Glas =glass
Strom =electricity
Kunststoff =plastic

Correct. I have the German edition. I've never actually seen an English edition of this game.
