I still have to figure out how to get the Patrician homes to become available - or do they? It's been a while since I played this one, but they definitely become available. (See my screenshots in the post above.) Try getting your beauty rating up and, if I remember correctly, you might try building...

Actually, I think I am the only one who does the story first. Maybe thegrad and Karter as well. I think most people follow Matt Zimmitti's advice and make a map first. I can't speak for anyone else, but I always need the story idea first. I need the inspiration from it to spur me to do the work to ...

Actually if you have never had an Elite worker in your city but you place, 5, 10 or 275 Noble houses on the map, residents will move into them. People cringed when I suggest adding complexity here, but no one ever earned wealth to become Elite, they simply appeared that way. This carries over from ...

what kind of housing block strategy would be good for any of us that just started the map? While placing the plebs housing is easy enough, I had a hard enough time trying to find a good spot for equites and patricians. While doing the campaigns, the thing I found was to try to give full coverage of...

It's a total of 40 sites right now. It's good to know the limit, though, because I might add a few more. Thank you. The limit is actually 90 sites, including any map labels. (I found it out when I did my scenario "Two Falcons".) Unless they've revised that in the enhanced version. ;) I've gone back...

Use the manage attachments option when posting to upload a game save for someone to take a look at. It will be much faster and easier than trying to guess what's happening. :)

How do I get homegrown nobles? For reasons of my own, I wish to have my nobles all come from within my city. Hi Sandra . Some of what you are experiencing can be explained by how the game picks nobles. As others have said, you get them from off map, luxury shops and retiring elites. (This last is h...

Hi thegrad . I haven't been working on anything so I don't know. :( I was wondering if maybe you could use exporting and importing to get around it. Export the world map from the one that's almost finished and import it into a fresh one that you say accepts changes. Then, when you're finished with e...

I actually found my cheat sheet in the first moving box I looked in -- good day!! :D

It was 106F/205L.

So, they changed the amount of stone. You also implied the footprints got smaller too? If so, bummer. :p

I've been thinking about replaying the campaign since the enhancement, so I guess this is one more reason to do it (to check this out). If it doesn't take into account assignments for the X/#, then I guess it's back to clicking on all of them to see which are occupied and which aren't. :(

EDIT: I just went back to the game. Changing mastabas to "Anyone" causes the X to change from Zero. A Pharaoh mastaba (empty or full) doesn't change it. When I changed two small mastabas from Pharaoh to Nobles, nothing changed, even after they were immediately bought at 8 PM. If I understand, this ...

The Ma'at message was previously in the game but only where Ma'at is the Godess Patroness of the city, it's her Festival, I don't think that's how it worked. If you went into the editor, you could set Ma'at as the city patroness, but there wasn't any city patroness worship events for her, as there ...

Yep, yep, yep. Exactly. As long as there is demand for it, we'll continue to develop CotN further. That's what we're hoping for!

As I read the announcements, it sounds to me that from now on they will be creating new content for CotN in package form. You'll get a campaign, probably built around a theme, that will include buildings and "people" that relate to that. My guess would be something along the lines of maybe a Saqara/...

Ma'at Popup for crime? I didn't have any security alerts. Well, at least Ma'at works again! Interesting. I wonder if other god's worship has changed. I notice in the alert that it says they will look to other temples if there isn't proper Ma'at worship and that you've captured a Ma'at worshipper. I...

Screenshots -- the next generation

I downloaded the patch and played the new quick start tutorial. I thought it might be time to start a new screenshot folder now that the game has relaunched. Is it just me or do the graphics seem more detailed or brighter (?) ? I was noticing as I was watching farmhouses be built that they seemed di...

You should go to the editing forum and read the seven lessons stickied at the top of the forum. The create river button doesn't do exactly what you think it does.
