(sorry for my eng, I'm italian )

Hi everyone,
I don't know if I posted in the right section, feel free to move this.

As the title suggests my idea, the project that I would like to develop, is to create a "remake" of Caesar III.
I'll explain a little better in a nutshell.. basically I want to create a 3D game from scratch but with the same functionality and same kind of game, rules, etc... of Caesar III.

The differences from the IV chapter and many other games (which I was bored after a while.. and faster than I expected) are that I want to do the same kind of isometric game like Caesar III.. everything but graphic that will be in 3D. So.. roads, prefects walking along their path, etc..
In short more or less equal to Caesar III but only with graphics a little more beautiful (hopefully) and maybe few SMALL changes (I do have several ideas.. ie: Road Blocks) complying as much as possible with this masterpiece.

Since I work too much (unfortunately) I would do that very slowly during my little free time but, preferably, I wouldn't start before can rely on a team or someone to help me with graphics, sounds, texts, etc...
Even if I can recover some piece of code like maps management or pathfinding from other works I did.. all this will be a very hard work that will take a lot of time especially cuz it's done in my spare time.

I need some feedbacks and some advices from you.. or even better if anyone can/wanna take part and help I would be happy!!

Thanks for reading me,
Luca

It would've been really nice to be able to make your own careers in Caesar3 rather than just one single scenario.

I also agree with the more realistic maps suggestion, like making mountains more distinct for instance, rather than just putting rocks and a stairway in order to "pretend" they were mountains. The idea of pretending they were cliffs/mountains in the first place is kind of like a pet-peeve of mine every time I play this game, I guess. And need I say that they must be more easily identified in the city map and not ruin the entire beauty of the city map landscape like what the mountains did with Pharaoh/Cleopatra?

Navies are a great idea too. Never understood why they weren't implemented in the original Caesar3 as they kind of "did" play much of a role in ancient times.

Well, not sure if people would agree with me in these suggestions and I guess my suggestions might be pretty difficult to implement in the re-make, but it would be pretty interesting - in my view, at least.

It would also be nice to have a Zeus/Poseidon re-make too.

Please for the Love of god, put roadblocks or civilian gatehouses pleazzee!! Preferably roadblocks.

If you think having no such things makes the game more fun then by all means feel free not to use it but everyone should have a choice. That way all preferences are served.

You guys read my mind. Caesar 4 sucked big time, and I can't believe i waited nearly ten years for it. It sucks bad, trash it.

I'm a programmer/developer by trade, and was recently thinking of re-building caesar 3 but with 3d graphics, the rest un-touched for the beta version.

I'll be the programmer/developer, any 3d graphics artist want in?

send me a pm if interested. I can do this myself, but wouldn't hurt to have a artistic partner who also loves this game as much as I do to join me.

@caesar1998- Is it actually possible to send a PM here? I don't think your email address is visible.
