Totally stuck as I'm struggling to get enough floodplain farms actively producing.

I have four work camps, fully staffed. Road access to many farms. Unemployment around 6%. I cannot get more than the 6 closest farms to get any labour. The labourers will walk to the closest farms no problem, but won't go to any that are slightly further away.

Menat Khufu floodplain is long and thin so the further afield farms are quite far from the housing block but my understanding was that labourers are destination walkers anyway?

Driving me bonkers! I've tried deleting all farms and just placing one extra but they just won't go there. It's right next to a perfectly working farm!

Hi Franhaselden, welcome to Pharaoh Heaven.

A laborer will go to a floodplain farm only if the north tile of the farm is 40 tiles or less (measured horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) from the point where the laborer becomes visible.

Since Menat Khufu cannot build scribal housing, it should have lots of workers to spare, so build more work camps near farms. My Menat Khufu has 23 work camps.

Thanks, that'll be it then. I didn't realise that farms had a distance quota from workcamps.

I managed to finish Menat Khufu, I ended up building a smaller block of housing a little further south which managed to spread workers deeper down the west side of the Nile. What a tough level though - the longest I've played one level and the most times I've lost! Once I got the food rolling in it wasn't so bad.

Now on Itjtawy and it's a toughie too... feeding 7,500 people plus all the requests is going to be hard!

Unlike Menat Khufu, Itjtawy has a tremendous amount of farmland, both floodplain and meadow. Feeding 7500 people should be easy.
