Giza -- Old Kingdom Scenario

Postby Jimaaten » Sun May 04, 2008 6:57 pm

Giza -- Old Kingdom Scenario

This scenario (actually scenarios) is set during the old kingdom at what is now known as Giza. And yes that means pyramids. They are the only win condition.

I have made two versions of the scenario. The only difference between the two are the win conditions. For Giza complete, you will need to build a medium, large and great pyramid. (The first win screen I posted is from my play through of Giza complete.) For Giza lite, you only need to build a great pyramid. Only. :p (The second win screen I posted is from my play through of Giza lite.)

There is of course lots of world level to interact with if you wish -- busy work while the pyramids build. ;)

Hope you enjoy. :)

LOL. That sounds like a fun challenge. See how pretty we can make that area.

Thanks, Jim!

plus I have only built one great pyramid and I should change that.

I build several of the smaller ones per city mark, but great pyramids take forever. I can build one in maybe 25 game years if I try :rolleyes:
meanwhile what?... just watch them slowly pull limestone because there is nothing else to do D:
yes I build pyramids after all my statues are in place.. all 400 per city

25 years - you'r good. I think the fastest is 30 for me. That's it. I'm downloading these and going for 20. :cool:

Soon as I finish my beta test.

I think there was a contest at one point for who could build the great pyramid the fastest.
winners got t shirts
through the snail mail :rolleyes:


I think the real thing took 18 years roughly

"There is of course lots of world level to interact with if you wish"

heh. now THAT is an understatement :D

That was fun. Loads of places and ways to build both the city and the pyamids. Thanks for the scenario. I'm learning patience, thanks to you and Yahya ;)

LOL. It is really a delicate balance, trying to get the player to do what we want, but also allowing them to do what they want.

If you want to learn patience, play the sandboxes. One is called "Son of Ra", and the other "Voice of Sobek".

I believe that Ra has nothing for you to do but build and explore. And there is never a win screen. :p

Breaking News!

I got the Medium & half the Large done last night, Jim. AND I hate you for the prestige on Hard.

Question

Do I win a prize for less than 100 years on my Win Screen?

:D

EDIT: Adding a few images showing a few samples from my bag of tricks. World Map complete. Pyramids went much faster than I thought. I LOVE Pyramids, but Pharaoh died al lot after the first one! :eek:

Absolutely loved it, Jim! Thank you! :D

The one complaint most have about doing great pyramids is that it is so boring just watching them be built, so I try to give a lot of things on the world level to do and use a few things to spread them out over time. :)

Wow, 35 years. You get the Pretty, Pretty award. Look at all those unnecessary plazas and palm trees. :p

I usually build very small pyramids for them. I build a few before I start the bigger ones and you can build and carve one during the time when the carvers are working on the great one.

I'm glad everyone seems to be enjoying it (them). :)
