Hey guys,

I am playing Bubastis and cannot achieve the housing status required to finish the level. They are saying they want a second type of luxury goods like jewellery.

I am importing the jewellery and the bazaars have literally thousands of them. They have bazaars around them and they are getting everything from them, including the jewellery. Does this sound like a bug problem or is it something else??

Thanks for all your help

Kim

It's not a bug. In Pharaoh, there are multiple types of luxury goods and in order to evolve a Stately Manor into a Modest Estate, you need to have at least two types. To achieve this, you need to either produce one and import the other, or import both at the same time. One luxury good is jewelry, others are ivory, incense or ebony. You can't see on the world map which city sells which type of luxury good, but you can see which ones are being imported in the Overseer of Commerce (in the luxury goods row).

My guess is that you are currently importing incense, not jewelry. Try opening a trade route with a city that sells jewelry, or import gems and produce jewelry yourself.

Hope it helped!

Yes you can. Click on the city in the World Map then put the cursor over the luxury good symbol. In Bubastis, Heh sells jewelry and gems and Pwenet sells incense. Later in the mission, the trade route to Gaza (who also sells incense) becomes available, but I prefer to open Pwenet since Gaza is a water trade route and I don't want to increase congestion at the dock(s).

Actually, you only have to appear to have two types of luxury goods available. Say you have jewelry and open the trade route to Pwenet and have luxury goods set to importing: stately manors may immediately evolve to modest estates even though you haven't imported any incense.

I checked before posting my reply, and I checked once more now and nothing appears. Maybe it's because I don't have the original version of the game, who knows...

Good point. Also, a nice trick for not spending money on the secondary luxury goods type when you have jewelers is to set luxury goods to "importing to maintain 0".

It works properly for me with the original game (with or without Cleopatra) and with the GOG.com game.

For a house to be importing "two types of luxury goods" they have to have at least one kind in the house and another kind available -- set to be imported, even if there are none of that kind actually in the house (or in the city). But never attempt to determine which kind a house already has and only try to deliver the other.
