Another Title to try.

A book I recently read was "Roma Eterna" by Robert Silverberg. A re-written history of Rome from about 500 AD to about 2000 AD (book uses years since founding of Rome (AUC)in aprox 750 BC) Plays upon a reworked history where Rome never truly falls or fades away. Not the best book I've ever read but ...

This chap had Sierra - City Building Pack (Never saw it available in North America) Product arrived as advertised. Everything seems to work fine and appears to be leg...

Demo Version Idea

In the DEMO version I have an idea for the final (Third) scenario. Trainers for the first two. Pompeii/Herculaneum for a scenario example in the third. A beautiful roman city built to remarkably similar layout to the actual city that has been dug up for the past forty years. The demo player gets to ...

Marketing Idea - Real Coin

A marketing Concept. Not sure how feasible to carry out but, A Limited Edition DVD version of the game could include a real genuine Roman Coin. Some well worn roman coins cost less than $5 to aquire and could help sell a cost plus (more expensive) version of the game. Many of the die hard fans might...

caesarea maritima (search it on google or whatever) Romans developed a very durable form of Underwater(Hydraulic) Concrete that would set in salt water locations to make harbor breakwaters.

Slaves are slaves are slaves, they were a huge part of roman society. Slaves could be those whos family had squandered its fortunes, Prisoners of War (many of these), criminals released from prison etc. Frankly I think people should just get over any 'moral injustice' (GO PLAY GTA) within the game,...

Vivendi shuts down Kings Quest IX fanwork

Vivendi shut down a fanwork based on the King's Quest series of adventure games from the eighties and nineties. A lot of hard work went into the game that was due to release for free later this year.

Make Latin a language option for the game.

An idea for the wonderful rebirth of the Caesar franchise would be the option to hear and read Latin in the game. A few checkboxes in the game options should let the user select: text prompt language, mission outline spoken language, character on the street language. My understanding of Latin is hit...
