This is cause by changing the name of the scn without creating similarly named dds files. Thus the game is using the terrain and elevation, etc, from the scn, but the default dds's. You can fix this by copying Tingis_Color.dds with the same file (before the underscore) name you gave the scn, and lik...

I guess they got C4 pretty close to perfect :rolleyes: If only it were true.... It's a great game, in many ways a worthy successor to C3, but so buggy. Buggier than a plague of locusts. The military AI is horrible, but that's the least of it really, although the food distribution system seems fine ...

You can't mothball fields of any kind. When you mothball grain farms, existing workers continue to work, but will deliver to a farm that is not mothballed if there is one with room.

People don't leave because there is too little entertainment. They leave because they are unhappy. In the case of equites the factors involved are types of food, types of basic goods, water availability (including type of water), unemployment, wages and sales taxes. All the things with little icons ...

I would beg to disagree here. Certainly if you have Lvl 2 or 3 Mercury, cartpushers still carry an extra item (which is Lvl 1).

If TM could at some stage get their hands on C4 and fix it, they would have something really special. Sadly, it's very unlikely to happen.

You can set pleb and/or equite wages to equal just about any variable integer you like, particularly in a special "checking" script, but I've long given up on being able to put the value of a variable into a displayed message. The brute force method works perfectly well, and doesn't take THAT much w...

It's probably fair and reasonable that CotN should get this vote, as it was TM's baby from the start. C4 (which desperately needed and still needs another patch which will never be made) and SCS were made to the specifications of larger game companies. Nile Online is basically not much different, ap...

A Romantic Interlude in the Cote d'Azur

It is 47BC and Caesar has been away in Alexandria for quite some time. Word has filtered back to Rome that Caesar has achieved his greatest conquest- he has won the affections of none other than the young and beautiful Egyptian Queen Cleopatra. Caesar now wishes to take his newfound paramour for an ...

When I looked for C4 online it was vastly overpriced compared with what you can get it for from Amazon, E-bay, etc. Especially if you are happy to use the US version.

I think only C4. CotN uses scripting as well, Azeem's your man there, I think it is substantially different to how C4 is done. Significantly, Azeem is most proficient in CotN but won't touch C4 (AFAIK) and Hiero is the opposite, so this points to the two being very different. There may be other non-...

C4 CBC Beauty Contest

CBC announces Lutetia , a Beauty Contest for Caesar 4. This is the perfect opportunity for all the "pretty" C4 builders to display your skills to the world. The map is based on the city of Lutetia (now called Paris) in 52BC, at the time of the Roman conquest. The map is basically a sandbox scenario ...

Using the C4 editor you can display a value, such as a rating, on screen, but you can only do it by a "brute force" method, that is by having all possible values stored in xml and the appropriate message triggered. The range is limited by your patience, but is certainly feasible on a scale of 1 to 1...

In the case of C4, Australia received the US English version. But as I've said elsewhere, US Amazon sellers will not ship to Australia.
