I even tried to download the Cesear 4 Demo but no go.. wouldn't work for me.. sooo COTN is the *ONLY* one I have continually return to. The rest, I d...

Slight problem.. but fixed it.

Hi Lioness, Thanks for going to the trouble of making this scenario. While I really ennjoyed it, especially the tight constraints in regards to areas available for building, there were just a couple of small problems. 1. A few of the original shops were around th wrong way which meant the doorways w...

Welcom Lioness :) Thanks so much for taking the time out to make us all a couple of new scenarios... I'm sure we all appreciate it! I've just started playing this scenario and so far, so much fun! The map is just great as is the world level. For a beginner, you've done brilliantly and I'm really loo...

Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the instructions on how to attach my win screen, very much appreciated. That bit I had figured out.

However, how do I actually save my win screen during the game? I know that there is a 'snapshot' option but where does the actual snap shot go if you click on it?

Thanks again

Emperor - city builder

I do have a city builder based on the japanese/chinese feudal system, called, Emperor - Rise of the Middle Kingdom. Unfortunately, its from 2003 and it has some of the worse graphics I've ever come across.. :: shudders :: I bought it as I was getting a little tired of COTN and I thought it might be ...

Done baby... done!

I loved this scenario.... The map is great and very well set out. There were just enough traders to satisfy me, although, there could be 100 traders and I'd still want more.. lol. The military aspect wasn't too demanding and was enjoyable. The condition of at least 6 large oblisks to win was a good ...

Fingers crossed for COTN 2!!

I've got my fingers crossed for a COTN 2 as well. I've got loads of other games here at home but I always keep coming back to COTN... I adore this game. It was only recently that I discovered that although I really enjoy Sims 2, I was really only playing it to build houses and decorate them...lol I ...

Added challenge! I built on the same side of the Nile you did, Tjgoldstein. Yeah, I looked at your scenario pics and I thought that you did but while it might have worked for you, it certainly isn't for me.... I did everything like normal but after waiting for 10 years for some stupid statues to be...

Ok... no cedar.

THis is not really good. I can't make yachets for the Nobles nor can I now make chariots.

Can I still win the battle with the raiders without chariots?

I'm building on the opposite side of the river bank to the basalt quarry site and although I have four small statues w...

Reduced the lag

Ok, I've been keeping up on this particular thread. With this scenario, the first change I made was to reduce the amount of villagers to 236. Second change was to delete *every* clay sprite located on the little island in the middle of the river.... I think there were about 6 million? Or at least th...

I was excited to download this scenario as I adore trying out new scenarios and maps. However, the joy soon turned to absolutely dismay when I experienced severe lag. Nothing I attempted, such as fiddling with the options, could make the scenario run at a normal pace. I even tried running the game o...

Until I joined the forums here, I had never heard of Ceasar but after reading a few threads, I've become intruiged by the game. As I don't have an up to date computer.. only 1 1/2 years old, I'd like to play one of t...

Campaigns?

Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone makes campaigns at all? I would very much like to try my hand at a campaign other than the 'official' campaign that comes wiht COTN.

Thanks

Are you referring to World-level "Monuments"? World-level monuments have to be given a prestige value in order to provide prestige to your world-level totals. It's done in the same manner as all other world-level sites. No. I didn't know how to do this myself so I just sorta made them government ow...

Hey Azeem,

How can I tell what version it is? And only 8 traders... icky!

Lol.

I'll give 10 a try and see what happens?

I also have 3 sites where I have to build 'presige monuments'... would this affect anything at all?

thanks

Thanks for the ultra quick reply, much appreciated :) I think I have about 17 traders? I just hate scenarios with only 6 or 7... just seems to be no point in playing once they are all trading with me.. lol. Is 17 too many, because I can always take a few down? As for the patch... did try a number of...

Thanks for help, I appreciate it. I thought I may have had to do something with 'Triggers'. However, the Triggers section is so damn confusing, I refuse to touch it... therefore, I've changed the goal to 400 prestige only. Now... I'm in the testing mode and I have a weird issue with traders being st...

First time editor.

Hi all, I'm a first time editor and I'm needing a little bit of help. I'm really only having issues with the 'goals' section. I have 4 main goals which are extremely achievable.... 1. Build a Greater Sphinx 2. Build 15 or more Matsabas for a 'Valley of the Kings' 3. Build 15 or more Luxury Townhouse...
