I move and can't get on the internet for a few weeks and apparently there's a new game coming. :eek:

It looked fairly interesting at first, when it looked like Greece :p , but I'm not much into RPG games. I guess I'll wait and see what it is first ...

My Mastaba looks like a large brown brick with little white pylons on all of the 4 corners. When I go to my prestige button it shows 0/4 complete. I do not know how to view or load one of my saves on the forum. Thanks That discription seems to match a finished mastaba. 0/4 could mean two things. Fi...

The Greeks imposed grid layouts on cities. It was one of the defining things that made a city or town Hellenistic. (At least that's what my pals at the History Channel told me. ;) )

Hey, ilikepie . It's been a while, but I seem to remember that one of the things the patch fixed was a problem when you were in the campaign and used the restart to begin a map again: the game was taken out of campaign mode and it became a scenario. Just as you experienced. If you can't patch, you'l...

I already installed the patch hoping that it would solve the problem but nothing yet. Installing the patch is a good idea, but it won't solve any problem you already have. Are the statue and the drop off on the same side of the Nile? If they are, you could try deleting the base and building a new o...

Most of them are easy to figure out but can someone post a description of what each of the abbreviations means? For example s = shot, ls=luxury shop but what does pap and ps stand for? If you are talking about the layouts that Mark posted, s = common shop, pap = papyrus maker. But I don't see any p...

Maybe the hunting issue was because there were no crocodiles, lions, hippos etc. on the map. Not sure what I can do about that. Nothing. :) I've never seen a noble leave who only had leisure activity complaints. I have servants for my nobles, but the people who really need them (overseers, scribes,...

If you have a dedicated cult temple and a shrine to the patron god and your noble went to worship in the shrine, you may get a dissatisfaction that the family was unable to properly worship the patron. There is also the possibility that the family was too busy to go to worship Ptah. Or they may have...

Adding this element to a TM game I think would constitute a major new direction for the company and it's not one I see them taking. Yeah, the idea never struck me as meshing very well with the kind of games TM likes to make. As far as exaggerated Spanish accounts go, I'm quite sure that the current...

LOL :p So, is anyone actually playing this scenario? The last 10 posts haven't really had anything to do with it. :o (I don't really mind the off-topic stuff, but it would be nice if there were a little more on-topic too. :D )

Sorry, Azeem. This just isn't a good month for me. I'm in the process of moving at the end of the month and I just don't have the time to devote to it. :)

I've seen other people post that they do that. It was usually with scribes though. ;) Sometimes, you seem to get priests who are really dedicated to their jobs. Even with food, full bakeries and shops, they still go to work and complain about not having time to eat. Instead of deleting you might try...

Welcome crash1952 . :) In the game campaigns, a few things are not buildable because they weren't available at that time in history. Obelisks weren't around in the Old Kingdom. You'll need to wait until later in the campaign. Try to upload a game save when you can for people to check. Off the top of...

Maybe in their update, TM could add an icon, like the raider one, that lets a player know that a route is a water route. :)

I see the brickyard has created a lot of guessing. :p For someone like me, who likes to build a necropolis with mastabas for all the nobles on the west side of the river, usually far away from the city, it sounds like a good thing, no matter how it works. ;) The thing I'm really wondering about are ...

I usually use large trees when space is limited. They seem to give a good boost and have a good range. Also, public buildings like forums and temples seem to help. The governor's residence also adds a lot to desirability. If money isn't a problem, filling in the small 1x spaces with hedgerows also h...

Using normal speed is a good start. Another thing that helps is understanding how fire prevention works in the game. Looking at the...
