I dunno, for me, I tend to get the idiot pharaohs that can survive almost everything, live a long and fruitless life, and then BAM dead at 47 because they fell off a chariot . Good Ra man! Ya been riding in chariots since you were knee high to a donkey and you die? Must be the beer, cause no family ...

Only estate that ever reaches 10 farms is the palace.

In the manual it states that a noble estate can only reach 8 farms.

Why not something like Phoenicia? Why must it always be Greece, or Rome, or China. Why not India perhaps? Why not try a go at playing the Hittites? Or even a game where you had a map that let you choose. You can play as Carthage if you want. Or as the Persians. Just give us more selection. But for t...

Well, I have gone down both paths with this. I have had cities with upwards of 7 hospitals and apothecary. And I have had cities with 2 of each. I think the most I've seen in my hospital was 7, but I've had 780-something served for the previous year several times. Yes, I try to aim for much larger c...

I have tried having mining colonies ( most notably in the Hyskos Pharaoh scenario) and I can say without any doubt that the benefits that you may gain from having them close seems to be utterly wasted by the sheer upkeep you need. What I have been doing more and more is having many laborers when pos...

If a temple is the better choice, and if you have access to basalt on your map( not always an option, granted, but on some maps, it is), is it better to just go for broke, and have temples, no shrines and your cult temple? Make a central "Temple Alley" that sits smack dab in the centre of your city?...

For me it has always been scribes. Stupid lazy buggers think I should come and hand deliver stuff to their houses. Bah! They need to stop doodling on their papyrus and get to work. Half the time they are sitting on their butt, the other half they are protesting.

Well, I don't know if maybe I have luck because I tend to not have as much problem with villagers. I believe it was Men-Neffer where I went down to 0 villagers, but due to the extreme length of that map( 72 years! I nearly passed out playing that one ) I ended that map with 60 villagers. So the whol...

Is there a way through triggers to set it up so that if you build a fortress, it reduces the amount of troops needed to take an enemy capital? For example, you open Fort A, and because of that you don't need 400 spearmen, but only 200 instead. I am completely lost trying to figure out how to do this...

Yes! More tombs! I want to recreate the Valley of the Kings. I want to be able to actually follow a worker as he carves out the passageway. Heck, if that was in I'd probably let the rest of my city wallow in decay :D I'd be so engrossed by the worker.

I always had trouble with that scenario until I said to myself "Nuts to this, I'm building on the same side as the quarries". I've kept that up with every map I play, simply because sometimes to get the cedar you are paying so much food out it is not worth the expense.

I did a very unscientific test where I built a very small pyramid and then a small mastaba and had one noble take the pyramid, and the other the small mastaba. From my very unscientific test, the noble with the pyramid was paying out most of his food funds to upkeep the tomb. It would go from 300 do...

With this, people have been talking about mastabas. But if you had the gumption to build up pyramids instead, would the paid food skyrocket from nobles being interred in fancy schmancy pyramids instead of just plain ole large masatabas? And if you delete old tombs, will you: a) lose paid income from...

Thanks.

Is it better to have a central shrine area where all the shrines are? Just trying to optimize how I place down my city to lessen all the complaints I get.
