I played your scenario and enjoyed it and completed all of the quests except for the one that calls for everyone to have a job, villagers and vagrants, the game will not let me run out of villagers, the more jobs I create the more villagers I get and I end up with more than I started with! Obviously...

It's only 25 pages, so you could print them fairly easily, most of the help is in the game itself.

I kept the original cd but failed to keep the box and documents, I have reinstalled the original and patched it, and bought the latest alexandria from gamersgate, but I don't have any manu...

warehouse space

Is there anyway to tell a weaponmaker to store his stuff and change to another ware (armor chariots etc.) currently if you change products the ones he has on hand go up in smoke.

The monkey problem

I have noticed at times (especially scribes, finicky little devils) that once the elite have access to a monkey fest, they seem to not buy any common wares and then gripe about it, once the offending monkey stuff is cut off, voila, they go back to buying common wares, I have seen furs do something s...

buying

I'm not sure I am understanding the concept of money (food) and where it goes, at times it seems to just vanish, no one is buying anything and it still goes away somewhere. another problem, I watched one women go shop for linen several times, she went to a shop that had adequate linen and turned aro...

Crocodiles

I noticed a couple of Crocs meandering through my city, so I decided to see what they were up to, they finally came to the palace and stopped and wondered what to do for a while, then went into the menagerie and ate everything in sight, you would think they would put a gate on that thing!

You definately want to be ready early on with an mastaba for pharoah, I started one scenario and he died in the second year (oops) then his successor died the following year, no hint of an epidemic or any other problem, must have been a lousy gene pool.

pyramid orientation

I seem to be able to move all structures around except pyramids, they seem to follow, for lack of a better description, the fault line, like placing roads and such, anyone know of a way to orient them to a different facing?

Grumpus, glad to see you again, I remember you from all the city building games from a few years past.
