Happy Waters.

I always put one fountain, and a bathhouse as close to a reservoir as possible, and another fountain a bit farther away. Even if I have an Equite Exodus, those reservoir fountains never stop, and the plebs never lose water or baths. I don't think there's a water table problem with excess wells. I us...

Ave Jan Gronvik!

Jan I really liked your suggestions for Caesar V, I'd also suggest salt mining or a salt works connected to a brine well or the ocean, because apparently the Romans preferred situating their colonia close to salt supplies. Salt really isn't a patrician luxury. (Really we shouldn't be building pumpho...

Nicomedia Cipherensis - Bithynian' You (Number 6)

With it's ideal situation as a crossroads commanding the approach to the the Black Sea, this town is where all the smart spies go for a working vacation. 1. Nicomedes Plaza - it's as if Old King Nicomedes is grinning at you! 2. The Library at Marmara Plaza is at the end of Astacus Avenue. 3. Olbia A...

Fire and Ice

Hieronymus that's an amazing view! I think your idea designing a scenario to favor a greater ratio of decorative elements to the rest of the built environment would work. But a beautiful city might need other measurable factors like fountains, or even a higher road surface ratio [i.e. boulevards, pl...

Tarsus Cipherensis - Winging it...

In anatomy, the Tarsus means the bones of the ankle, so in homage to Mercury who had wings at the ankles of his slippers, this city has two wings of housing with the Coliseum as the hinge. 1. 9,700 people need a lot of protection. 2. Double walled southwest and southeast. 3. Navicular Square 4. Talu...

Different Strokes for Different Folks

I'm really energized looking at both approaches that Partizan and Marcus Uproarius are exploring. They've really spiced up the Screenshot Thread. When I first started this game, I used more "Baroque" plans with curved plazas and a lot of diagonals. But as I progressed in the game, and had to make us...

Wall Maze

The wall maze actually started with single wall tiles sprinkled around the exterior of the fort to disrupt the catapults and undermining machine, but gradually I connected them together, and they worked really well. Eventually I sealed up the maze on the outside. Later on in the game whenever I had ...

Moguntiacum Cipherensis - The Mainz Event

With this city I did some sandboxing to work out a good tight basic central services plaza (baths, hospital, clinic, odeum temples, school, reservoir, fountains, etc.). The German hordes were particularly persistent and nasty, so I revisted my previous Hernia© fort plan, (a fake narrow breach in an ...

Ephesus Cipherensis - Fun City!

I had to do Ephesus a couple of times before I got the 100 culture rating. I even did a dry run planning to see how symmetrically I could lay out all the buildings. (I used extra Odeums as placeholders for Temples.) 1. In this scheme all of the farms, industries and forts are outside the walls. 2. T...
