Hello all!

Decided to run through the tutorials, included my modified one (don't recall what I modified though).

Pretty fun to poke around the nome again.

Thanks.

What's the key(s) to show which citizens are headed for a particular structure again? I forget.

Key? No idea what you mean by that. You can choose a person.

There's a list of debug or editor commands you can use that allow you to see points on all the citizens with a line to the structure they are heading to.

I've used it for years, but it's been years. I'll do some digging.

Ah! It's the SHIFT key.

If you click and hold, it shows the people heading for the structure you have selected.

AHA. I never knew :lol:
Not sure what you'd use it for, but good to know.

It lets me know where workers are coming from, so I can assess the effectiveness of my city.

If I have nearby bricklayers, for example, and the assigned workers are coming from the other side of town, it indicates a weak point in my infrastructure.

Btw, since you're here... Going through all the hoopla to create an image as background for the story... does anybody ever even look at it? It's my impression they don't generally.

I don't know that anyone ever did it...maybe one person, like Karter or someone else who made really involved scenarios.

I just documented it so we'd know how if anyone wanted to do it.

I've made a couple of them now. In one I left a major clue (if you're into Egypt and its gods that is), but I doubt anybody noticed :lol:

On the other hand, hardly anybody bothers commenting anymore, so it's hard to know what's going on with the players.

True, but there are players. I expect you see more downloads than comments, correct?

Oh, yes :D A small group of hardcore players, well worth uploading for.

As a 'welcome home present' I put a little Easter Egg in 'The Barracks of Baki' (new scenario coming very soon) just for you ;)
