Multi-Stage Monument Construction

Postby Pharaoh Yamsi » Sat May 22, 2010 1:12 pm

Hi, all...

I'm about sure I'm gonna buy Alexandria, but I have a question about the multi-stage monument construction. I was a big fan of watching the pyramids getting built in the original Pharaoh game, and missed some of the detail in CotN regarding that. My question is this. Is the multi-stage construction only for the 2 new great works or does it affect the original monument building? Does it add anything to building pyramids, etc?

Any info would be appreciated.

Hi Yamsi,

It's only for the two great works, unfortunately. But it's still very cool to watch them be built. They are far more extensive than most of the monuments in Pharaoh.

Howdy, Pharaoh Yamsi!

You bet the Alexandria Great Works are far superior to the pyramids in Pharaoh. They are on par with the Great Works in Cleopatra & absolutely rock!

Well, that's disappointing. However, I think I am going to get it from Gamer's Gate today because I have heard that it works with the original disk version.

Well, with a heavy heart, I have decided NOT to purchase Alexandria. The Steam version won't work with the disc-based, and neither will the Impulse/Stardock version. Gamer's Gate will, but I have seen bad things with PayPal and I have never heard of Paynova. Also, I just don't see it adding much to the game. Mebbe I'm missing something, but I am just so disappointed with the direct download thing.

I use GamersGate and have no problems with them. I also have the original (UK Version) on CD. They don't use a client and I pay with CC, don't use Paypal or any other.
