For 6 nobles you'll need only one entertainer.

On my experience the 'second city' on the other side needs a little more than mentioned by Jahzoo (see my snapshots of 'my Bubastis'). For sufficient income for the luxury shopkeeper it's better to have 3 or 4 nobles. You do not need a temple over there, but some shrines. Though it's not necessary t...

Meiner Meinung nach war die Begründung für die Verschiebung des Erscheinungstermins in Europa eine glatte Lüge, hinter der reine Geschäftsinteressen lagen. An eine geplante Werbekampagne habe ich nie geglaubt und offenbar findet sie auch nicht statt. In Deutschland vertreibt ATARI jede Menge Spiele,...

Do not look to todays shopping behaviour but to that our grandparents had, before shopping malls were build. They went to a market place which was located in the town center. There they found whatever they needed. So build always market places where all goods are available. In areas of farmers and c...

Sorry, but I cannot agree to your interpretation! On my mind the protests at the bakery take place, because bakeries are outposts of pharaoh's power. No noble nor shopkeeper would get any food from a bakery. This is not a place of origin for their dissatisfaction. But we can be lucky that they are p...

After all it was not so bad as I'd thought it would be. Remember, I started into the first year of failing flood with less than 50 food. In the second year of failing flood the pharaoh died, but a great mastaba was prepared. After these two meager years I'd lost only one (of 11) noble family and 6 o...

Bubastis: Scripted Starvation?

My second attempt to the Grand Campaign is Bubastis. I've started with a pharaoh at the age of 28. He seems to be of good health. But there was only one graduate and it took me 3 years to teach a second one. In every year the flood was average and the harvest was spend over the year. The second grad...

Es war ein Mausproblem! Es läuft alles bestens! :D Der neueste Logitech-Treiber hat nichts gebracht. Eine Option in CotN gibt es nicht. Das Feld für das Häkchen laut Manni gibt es bei mir auch nicht, aber ich habe die Zeigerbeschleunigung von nichts auf die kleinste Stufe erhöht (Systemsteuerung->Ma...

Checkbox style or Crlt-click as in windows would do it. The other question is a question of city layout. Mayby in this point I differ from most of the CotN and CB players. Most cities I've seen on screenshots look like american cities with egyptian buildings. I cannot imagine that ancient people hav...

Nekhen

My rating: very easy

I've finished after 11 years, 672 people, satisfaction: perfect, when I reached a prestige of 60, 3rd Pharaoh.

I'd to replay due to the loss of my saved games:
10 years, ~590 people, satisfaction: perfect, 4th pharaoh

My proposal: Set prestige goal to 150

Duty Setting for Priests (and other educated)

My problem is usually that I've not enough prestige to maintain a great number of educated worker especially not in the beginning. Or I've spread out over the map and I don't want people go over the entire map to fulfill their needs. Let me explain with two examples: I can maintain only 3 Priests, 1...

Die Odyssee ist noch weiter gegangen und noch nicht ganz zu Ende. Zum einen scheint das gebrauchte Bord nicht ganz in Ordnung zu sein, denn es gab immer wieder Abstürze, auch bei viel einfacheren Aufgaben als CotN (IDE-Controler?). Also mußte ich noch ein neues Bord kaufen, was natürlich auch neuen ...

Mindestanforderungen

Bei den technischen Mindestanforderungen an den PC gibt es ein paar Besonderheiten zu bemerken. Ich möchte diese Erfahrungen weitergeben. Mein PC war ein vier Jahre alter Pentium III mit 800 MHz und 448 MB RAM unter Windows XP. Die Grafikkarte war eine ELSA Erazor III LE mit 32 MB und TNT2-Chip. Weg...

One costumer less

The delay is not a big problem for me. My old TNT2 Graphicadapter will not do, I suppose. I've plenty to do at work, at home and in my garden. There are many games I've not finished yet and there are others to buy from the bargain-bin. Next year there are other new releases, too. It's not necessary ...

At the age of 51 I must admit that I've started computer gaming quite late. My first game was SimCity 2000 which I'd got as a birthday present at my 40th birthday. Before that I've known Tetris and SimCity only, which I played at work, because I had no PC at home.

Perhaps I'm a little late in discussion, but as I've understood, food is the key to the game. This is reasonable. Even today food is the key to society in many parts of the world. But what is the matter with water, with pottable water? On my mind it is even more important. I cannot build an outpost ...
