I did kinda imply that I only look for landing sites, didn't I. What I should have said is that when I start a new map I hit pause and examine the map for all important resources and features, including good Barge Landing sites. As you point out, Tink, most maps have many sites that will work for Ba...

A non-player Pharaoh is what I had in mind. It probably could be implemented without need for military. Basically, Pharaoh would act like Pharaoh, the ultimate enforcer of internal order. Anyway, it does seem to me that something along those lines would be both doable and more historically accurate.

It is frequently difficult to find a good spot to build Barge Landings. When I first played Nekhen I started building my city down onto the south plain below the high plateau before figuring out if a Barge Landing could be built there (so don't feel unusual in this). That first "easy" scenario did h...

Procreation of your townspeople will eventually produce more young townspeople who will grow up into adult townspeople who will then be able to step into whatever work roles that open up.

I noticed this, too. By that time though I had about 50 blocks of limestone waiting to go to the pyramid. The workers would just go to whichever one the computer decided was the "right" one for them to take, even if it were surrounded by a bunch of other blocks, and when they got there they would dr...

Why not an actual Pharaoh over all?

Back in the early Pharaoh city-building days, you played as a noble, basically, serving at the pleasure of Pharaoh, who would send in his army if you failed to live up to his expectations. As a possible "fix" to the raiders/non-raiders issue, why not have a version of the game for the "peaceful" pla...

Someone already mentioned it, but definitely rock cut tombs are a must add feature if you ask me. Valley of the Kings and Temple of Karnak projects should be included. I remember in Pharaoh that you could also build the Stepped Pyramid and Brick-Core Pyramids (not essential, but nice and flavorful).

Pleased with my version recently downloaded from Steam. I did pay $25.00 or so, so it was a little bit more. But I have had no problems whatsoever with the game or the service. It's available whenever I want and since I downloaded everything together I did not have any of the issues that other had w...
