After trying to find some interesting and challenging scenario to get into shape for city building, I detected this one (a bit old, but still very interesting and entertaining).
At first I thought it was another boring arcade military survival, however progressing with the city, I realized that there are a lot of city building challenges here.
The city was build at very hard with one scratch, never revised, but with some progressive saves (especially before invasions). I suppose it is impossible to win without knowing some future events (invasion points and number of enemies). Almost all plebs live in GI, 3 food types available for all. 4 Large palaces (did not bother with actor/gladiator schools to get to Luxury Palace). Almost all main city including all industries is on the west bank. The victory could be achieved in 1 month just building a few cultural buildings. City is stable till the end of time deadline.
Thanks to PP for great fun, I will post a positive review on this scenario.
