I hate the system as it is, and I've thought about this a lot over the last few weeks and this would be my immediate solution to open up pvp a bit: No hard quarry/monument cap, but you may only have a maximum of 2 quarries/monuments per nome and a maximum 10% production boost from your monuments. T...

Still doesn't make for any PvP, just pisses people off because they have to invest in military.

hopefully it isn't strictly "cant gift if you have 10 or less scarabs", because its been long ago since I spent my free 10, and already bought everything so could use trading my remaining scarabs Thats how I understand the hotfix. I'm hoping it gets a little more specific in the next update, but th...

Wow a sensible post from Tinkerbell! Am I dreaming? Possibly. And a very sensible post indeed. Excellent argument. A few problems with that logic though. You are correct that all high-rankers are locked out of pvp, but if the cap was removed, then two problems would arise: A. What would be the new ...

Yay Reed, fast as lightning problem-solving now, thanks. :) Reed usually works very much behind the scenes Asterix, most TM people do. They're very secretive. ;) It boosts confidence to be outgoing and dramatic (the opposite of secretive? not sure what that would be). In any case, sorry Reed. And t...

I dislike where my first village started as well mew.
I have a similar thread just below this about abandoning or destroying a village mew.


Why do you have mew at the end of each sentence?

I'm quoting myself here. I think the 10 initial scarabs should be marked somehow and all paid scarabs should as well. (they should be separated somehow) When you spend scarabs, at first you spend all the initial scarabs and if you send scarabs before you've spent the 10 initial scarabs it only sends...

But, but. I spent my 10 initial scarabs on upgrades, cities, etc. I'd still like to be able to send scarabs when I'm below 10 if I've already used 10 in my upgrades. I think the 10 initial scarabs should be marked somehow and all paid scarabs should as well. (they should be separated somehow) When ...

I sent some scarabs to a player to get my number of scarabs down to 10. I then sent one to another player and am now down to nine. As joshofet said this means that people could buy scarabs and then trade all their scarabs to another account and get 20 freebies. If Reed actually enforced his own rul...

Another issue with scarab trading. If, per se, I wanted to get sphinx monument but I don't feel like buying scarabs. Hmm. Lets check the trade wall and see how expensive they are? 5k Lux each? Okay. Lets find someone who will give me 4 scarabs for 20k. (spends ~10 min looking) Cool! Now I got 4 scar...

Tradable scarabs is a bad, bad, BAD idea. That said, when this makes it to Theoris, I'm selling scarabs for 100,000 bread. Scroll me for payment arrangements. All bread must be in transit before the scarab will be forwarded. This is my point, as soon as it goes to theoris and I get a palace that I'...

Even then, it would be a very straight tree... Maybe we should be able to marry other pharaohs, and need children before we can found a new city (someone has to rule them...) Number of children counts in rankings... Should make for an interesting enlivenment of social interacting :D Oh god, that wo...

That must be on Sabah, because I just checked Theoris and there isnt a city in 341N.

P.S. Amun, check the nome name for 319N.

If you are saying that 338N is far away from anyone, you are wrong, it is 3 nomes away from my capitol. Of what, you're 3rd account? If its you're first account, how is that possible? If your capitol is in 335N, that means you would have joined at most a day ago and at least a couple of hours ago, ...

I think everyone needs to just relax. TM will do what they think is best. They aren't going to set something up that wastes a ton of money or that requires them to focus less attention of developing the game itself. Well, honestly NO is Reed's pet baby and not TM's pet baby. Its a good idea, but it...

@PPS: Thats a good point. @PS: Yeah, I was thinking of that. I think gifting scarabs was a bad idea because now scarabs will have a price. Perhaps someone will give away 1 scarab for like 100k lux goods or bricks or something they need. In any case, if I get into a good nome, I'd buy 60 scarabs for ...

Ability to choose where you start

I know no admin ever reads this forum, but I thought I'd try to help before I quit completely. So because of the new update, I have a little bit more confidence that TM hasn't completely dropped NO so I want to restart my account. I just reset literally 10 times, and I landed in the exact same nome ...

Of course volunteers are unpredictable. Thats a given, especially when its online. Its so easy to simply disappear from online life with absolutely no consequences. Now if it was a real life volunteer its different. And why does my premise fail? Incase you didn't notice, there are other areas that u...
