Hi, I need some help with Caesar IV. I started a single map scenario (desert map) and built an industrial city (importing raw materials and selling manufactured ones).

But at some point the fire started burning the entire city and even with many prefectures I couldn't control the fire. That was insane and a waste of time!

I think I did nothing wrong, as the entire city was well protected by prefectures... What do you think? Nothing to do about it without "tricks"?

(It was the first time I built a big industrial city, so I thought it could be the fire's reason, the many factories).

Hi Halron.

Deserts are bad for fire, and too many prefects can make things even worse.

There has been a lot of discussion about fires. Have you tried using the search function, with fire as the subject? The information in some of those old posts might help with this problem.

Hi kach!

I have seen an old discussion about it here. And some suggestions were about changing game speed, saving and loading the game frequently...

Looked the search function right now after looking your post, thanks, before I found information only via Google search.

Seems I will have to use cheat... My computer isn't powerful and between using some "tricks" like save/load, game speed, it's better to use a "fire cheat".

I started playing this game now, I knew only Caesar II that I played a long time ago, but didn't know how to play properly. Sadly RTS' market doesn't make games like this anymore.

Thanks for your attention!

Using the fire cheat has got to better that the frustration of having your city burn to the ground.

Yes, there are no new games like these old city builders. We are lucky that we can still play them.

Yeah, I too use a cheat for that. I'm not gonna waist so much time building if a bug can tear it down.

I never used cheats so I cant comment on that. First I try not to get in this situation, if already in this situation then I run at lowest speed, ensure highest priority to prefects, and put min two prefects every possible corners n gaps inside and around fire region. I watch carefully for fire to reduce if still not reducing I put more prefects near that building. once fire is off remove extra prefects. this always worked for me with one or two building burnt
