A band of desert dwellers, known as the Tuareg nomads, has made you their leader.
Through your wanderings' you have found an oasis on a trade route that looks large enough to support your people.
With your leadership, your people can make this trading post into a thriving city with just a little bit of whimsy.

Mark, you are a wonder. You always play my scenarios on the hard challage, and still finish them in less time than I do, (and I know what's going to happen), you really know how to play COTN. :eek: :) :) :)

It is the Sun Palace that Kiya shared with us, isn't it just beautiful.
I have downloaded most of the new textures that members are shareing. :)

Im glad you like it, I made that mod for Kiya when she was feeling bad about something that had happened. I offered to modify any building she wanted in any color, she chose the palace but couldn't decide between lavander and orange so I did both and they became the sun and moon palaces. I also gave Kiya the right to do whatever she liked with them (even upload aslong as my name wasn't mentioned) She keeps the moon palace for herself but uploaded the sun palace to share with everybody :)

Played your scenario and had fun with it. Please continue creating.

The Sun Palace Mod

The mods put together by some of the users have added a great deal to the beauty of the game. The sun palace and red temples look wonderful, especially against the night sky with all those additional stars!

For those of you with the talent: PLEASE create a mod that will add color to the pharaoh statues!!!! The large sitting statue is imposing, but it's just a clump; the striding pharoah should be vibrant, but it's blah.

PLEASE DO SOMETHING!!!

Really enjoyed this game, loved the Oasis! First one I have seen but I didn't build a yacht for my Nobles like you did. :D

Thanks thegrad, that was fun - so much space. :)

I had a few bad harvests to start with, but after that no problems with food.
I built a lot of granaries - 12. Is that overkill?. I've never had that much food ever :D

I had to wait a long time to get all the obelisks, so I built a pyramid while I was waiting.

Only 10 gods? - that confused me a bit :rolleyes:

Thank you, thegrad, just finished this. Really enjoyed it.

I saw some interesting sights in this scenario that I haven't noticed before. Some pix for you. :)

I saw a dad and a kid out in a boat having a recreational sail. :) Not seen that before - and the kid's head is different from any others - looks like a full head wig painted brown and a black top knot added...

Also had a vagrant go on a mugging spree and captured it with a screenie! He had as knife and began hitting the woman with it and stole her bread. Bad vagrant! I quickly put down a commander and 2 barracks of city guards and the perp disappeared leaving his poor wife alone in their hovel.. She was better without him - he was a Bad Sort, :D

Sorry it took me so long to get back with you. I want to thank you and Herodotus for playing my game. I really enjoyed the pics because I have not seen a child on a yacht, I wonder if it was the royal family.

No, it was one of my Noble families. :) Thanks again for a fun scenario.
