Since January 2009, the patches for the Sierra citybuilding games are no longer available for download from the official Sierra FTP server.

Both the Caesar 3 patch and the map editor can now be downloaded from the Caesar 3 Heaven downloads

Please note that all releases of Caesar 3 from 2000 or later already have the patch applied, so you don't need to download the patch/map editor in that case. To check: go to Help -> About within the game. If it says "Version 1.1", you already have the patch.

Thanks, I still got my original copy of Caesar3 and often need these patches (I tend to buy another comp or two every year and forget to backup up these files again and again)

But it ain't necessarily so.

Hi everybody,

Thanks for putting this up, as my c3 mapper files had mysteriously disappeared since the last time I played.

Unfortunately I have problems with the setup file. Whenever I press Next in the first screen, the program freezes and no longer responds. I tried on 2 computers and it did the same. Does this happen to anyone else?

I recently got whole new ideas for scenarios. Does someone know of another source to download the editor?

Hi Barberousse, long time no see. You could try and ask PCD in the Tech forum. Do specify OS.

I managed to find a version that works on this web site: http://www.jeuxvideopc.com/downloads/16-caesar-3/1461-editeur-cartes.php

It's in French. No problem for me though since it's my language.


It's good to see this place is still somewhat active. You guys can expect at least one new scenario coming in the next few weeks.

That French site may have a version that works but what buttons does an English speaking user push to get the download I tried various buttons but sinct I did not know what I was getting into I decided to see if you could offer a little insight into the download problem

Follow the link in the opening post of this thread. If that doesn't work call again.

I am also running Vista, I had to install in in compatability mode.

The 64 bit part might do you in. There is no patch for that, would you expect one for PacMan? Check with the Tech forum and search for "64" to find related threads.

I tried the compatibility mode but still give me the (The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running and so one. and i checked the tech forums, i just figured i would ask in case someone had already known where i could find a patch for it. Its not like it doesn't run on the 64bit OS i just wanted all the game fixes that the patch gave.

There is no patch 1.0, that is the original game. You need to have the correct language patch and if your original version is from Packard Bell, no patch will work.

Probably your game is already patched... you can see the version if you start the game and then go to Help -> About. If it says 1.1 there, no need to patch

Hi All, Can Anybody tell me if there is any way to edit the terrain map for a saved game. I know you can edit scenarios from the game but don't see how I can edit other maps or change a .sav to .map so it can be edited. Any help would be so appreciated. Have been searching for over a month. Cant find anything that helps.

Hi MissyMart1956, welcome to Caesar III Heaven.

I don't know of a way to edit the terrain map of a saved game. A saved game cannot be changed to a map file, since a map file does not have all of the information in a saved game.

Why do you want to change the terrain map of a saved game? If it is to make it easier to play, identify the saved game and we might help you play it.

Thanks all for the welcome and the help. Brugle I like to play one of the maps in consul on the careers. Have been playing it forever and have completed it several times. I was just wanting to put a water spot on the map and play it once without having to deal with so many aqueducts no reason other then that, just for fun. I do appreciate the help though. Thanks

Someone have this caesar3 models editor?
Sorry for any inconvenience

in this link:
http://www.oocities.org/thapoofta/caesar.htm
PD: the link download is broken and i want to have it!

I want to have it for easy caesar3 housing modifications.
I want also an editor wich edit the whole file (building cost, desirability values, etc).
The editor is the unique i have found in english; but in this page (under), the model editor is in german language and when i install and open the editor, its show an error, search in tools section:
http://www.citybuilders.de/main/c3/index.html

--Other requests--

Also if somebody can tell me how to make a fort with +16 soldiers to fight against 1024 enemies in a tiny map without having build too many forts by the annoying size they have.
I changed the value in caesar3.model in this part:
44,Fort - Javelin,{,500,0,2,2,8,16,0,0,},16 or multiple of 16
57,Fort,{,50,-20,2,2,8,16,0,0,},16 or multiple of 16
to
44,Fort - Javelin,{,500,0,2,2,8,32,0,0,},16 or multiple of 16
57,Fort,{,50,-20,2,2,8,32,0,0,},16 or multiple of 16
...but nothing changes.
Note: the enemies come with the cheat, Ctrl+k and Ctrl+k in the well info panel and the ? icon info panel.

Also someone have an idea for instant house building like Caesar4? (caesar 4 allow instant build houses in three types; i want something similar for caesar 3!).
I want to instantly build an Small Casa with a cost of 500 denarii for fast population.

PD: Caesar 3 may be an super old game but is too funny to play.

Thanks anyway...

Hello

i downloaded the german patch. but, if i try to open the "c3up11De.exe"-file in the unzipped folder, there comes a message, that this does not work on my pc...

the basic "caesar III" from cd works on my win 10 pc.

How con i add the patch to my game?

I think, the downloaded file is a setup-wizard.
So can anyone, who got it to work, zip the things, he/she got from this setup and and upload them anywhere for me to download (send me the download-link per e-mail)

Hi olcix, welcome to Caesar III Heaven.

Have you looked in our Downloads? The original map editor (which I've used) and a map editor which should work on newer operating systems (which I haven't tried).
