The ancient Egyptians worshiped cats as gods. Cats have never forgotten this.

I've had three invasions so far. The first was by some other newb who got into my city and destroyed my token defensive force of slingers (it was all I could afford at the time). But since it was only my second day of playing, I had no resources for him to loot, so he went away empty handed. The sec...

Don't really need them to. My monuments have been done for ages and I've got no shortage of limestone.

I've been playing for a couple of weeks and even bought some ambrosia or whatever the hell it is, but I don't care for the game at all. I don't even know if I'll play long enough to spend the ambrosia.

I do all trading through the marketplace unless someone comes to me asking for stuff. I've found that, for whatever reason, a baseline value of 5 for raw materials and 10 for luxury goods seems to hold good at all times. Thus, I just adjust my asking price to suit my needs at the moment: if I need s...

Bingo! That was it. The game had been added to the list of sites to "block all images" from. I have no idea how that could have happened with an errant right-click, but apparently it did. I certainly never told it to do it intentionally. Anyway, after taking the NO site off the list and hitting Ctl-...

Hmm. My browser didn't lock up and I was able to shut it down normally, so I don't know if that's the problem or not. I looked in the browser's error console this morning after starting the game/site and saw this: Security Error: Content at http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/ may not load data from ...

Right-clicking broke the game for me [nab]

Help! I accidentally right-clicked on the screen today and something happened to where I no longer can see any graphics in the game. All the stuff is still there and I can click on it, but no graphics whatsoever show. Only text. Basically what I see is a big maroon screen. I am running Firefox 3.0.1...

Problem adjusting laborer population in under construction Exchange

I'm currently upgrading my exchange to level 17. I had a full population of laborers engaged there and I wanted to remove them, so I dragged the green arrow with my mouse and hit "Apply." The action would not take. As soon as the waiting screen was done, the laborer gauge had gone back to full. I tr...

Me too. And if it hadn't been for a very dedicated search which finally turned up this thread, I'd still be in the dark about it.

Question

If I remove sell orders from the market, am I supposed to get the market charge back? I just removed six orders so I could resubmit them at a lower price and noticed that the listing cost wasn't refunded to me, which came to about 10,000 bread. I'm not sure if I just never noticed that before or som...

All you do is downhearten the OP. Thanks for the defense, speysider, but I'm not exactly disheartened by what some kid says in a game forum. Having said that, I don't know where Michlo came up with his/her harebrained idea that I'm asking for the game to play itself. I'm asking, as one who often ha...

SUG: Provide notification that buy orders exist in marketplace

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't think there's currently any way to see whether a buy order exists for an item in the market without actively clicking on the [BUYERS] button. Hence, I'm thinking that buy orders probably go unread by a lot of people. I'd therefore like to see some kind of not...

[BUG?] Citizens not talking

The group of citizens standing at the top of my palace graphics (all 3 cities) do not display any incredibly amusing message when moused over. In fact, there's no message at all. It seems as if a transparent part of the palace graphic must be getting in the way or something. One of my palaces is cur...

Nubian trader in market

Why would anyone pay 15/30 for resources/luxury items? That's crazy talk. If there's no sell orders, I just post a buy order and someone eventually fills it. I've found that 5/10 works very well as a general rule.

Unless you're doing it for play style reasons, you should consider building up a little army - monuments are hardly attacked. It's not for style reasons. I just don't have the time or energy to devote to really trying to excel. I decided I'd just stick to tinkering with my cities and I'm having a d...

Uh huh. Exactly. That was the point of the original post you didn't bother to read before running off at the mouth.
