That's because the pyramid is WAY far away. It's HUGE! :eek:

For me, it's running out of oil or kohl every time I turn around. I've upgraded my henna farm to level 10 to try and have enough spare to both trade and produce with. I guess when you think about it, it's the perfume factory and cosmetics shop running at 32/hr that's the root of the problem, but I d...

I could really do without the ranks being shown at the nome map level, as it adds far too much clutter in tiny type when looking for someone.

The cartoon gods walking around dispensing blessings in Middle Kingdom really turned me off, and the even more cartoonish Zeus led me to not even purchase that game. I went back to playing Pharoah and Caesar III. I played the demo to CotN, and am going to try it a couple more times. I like the diffe...

Hmm, they were shooting at them, so I assume that they could see them. Strange. I'll experiment more tonight. It felt in general that they were less like automatons, blindly following whatever orders I gave. Maybe it was something to do with the sub-optimal laptop I was playing on. I will conduct mo...

Matt, Questions on patch

I notice that my men were MUCH more reticent about advancing last night, after the game patched. I also noticed that sometimes they no longer sit there with their thumbs up their bums if shot at, and return fire. While the second thing is much appreciated, is the first thing also an AI adjustment, o...

With multiple soldiers and groups it is a major pain to scroll to find the one who just noticed something if the soldiers are widely separated. The ability to move the camera quickly so a particular soldier or group was in the field of view would be extremely helpful. I only let the scout go off by...

Yeah, mine starts off like that!

I wonder if maybe it's a Vista issue? I don't see that on my XP machine.

We had a new player come into Trade Wall last night, desperate for cedar for his first boat, willing to trade anything for cedar. So I gave him 26 cedar. He was savvy enough to find the trade wall, so I figured he would be a boost to the economy, and besides, it was the right thing to do. I'm sure h...

Well, since we started in an "incomplete world" in this beta, taking prior experience may be wrong, but I remember the cedar traders the first week making out like bandits because everyone needed boats! All the markets were still at low levels, so you couldn't "see" far, and folks were scrolling to ...

I started on henna, and when leather ended up being a bust (the local sandals market croaked 2 days after I founded the city, pre-scribe wall) I shifted brick and basket production to the leather city since I needed reeds for the sandals anyway. I converted my original, henna city into a lux goods p...

I have an Ati 1900 video card, 2GB RAM, and a Core Duo 2160 processor, and really don't notice a slowdown under XP Pro. Of course that may be because I'm comparing it to playing on my laptop, 1GB RAM, T2330 CPU, and Intel 965 integrated graphics, Vista Home Premium. Now, THAT is a computer that runs...

You've got a level ELEVEN city and you're crying? I just got my cities up to level 9 each, to make it faster to get my 3rd city. I could have done it with both at level 8. For what you put into getting from level 9 to level 11, I'd wager you could have had your 3rd city instead. And as others have s...

I would pay $5 a month for enhancements that included a "shipping scheduler": Choose what to ship; Choose where to ship it; Choose WHEN to ship it. (so you can schedule it to execute when you know you'll have the goods to sent according to your production levels you've set.) Maybe even have a "re-tr...

What do (will) paying members get?

Reading our new "Terms of Service" and notice the bit about "Premium Membership." What's planned? Different graphics for every level of upgrade for each building? Starting with a free boat? I was going to say "choose which resource to start with", but premium perks would have to be something that co...
