Sicilia

Author File Description
Pontius Pilate & Bob
File Details
Minimap:
*** Note: This scenario is in a .sav file format. Load it as a saved game and then start playing. ***

As head of the Roman army in Sicily you gaze out upon your three legions ready for battle against the approaching Carthaginian army. It will be a desperate battle since you have only two untrained javelins and one cavalry legion facing the Carthaginian infantry and war elephants. But if you can defeat this last Carthaginian attack you can help end the 1st Punic War. Even now the Roman navy sails against the Carthaginian battle fleet at the Aegates Islands. The emperor has promised you the governorship of Sicily if you win this battle. You must defend the three Roman settlements now on Sicily against this last attack.

Playability
I don't want to play it again because of bugs. *

Creativity
Extremely well rounded, set into a "lifelike" city.

Balance
Excellent challenge, AND winnable.

Map Design
Lovely! Great historical representation. The deduction was from ugly housing blocks.

Story
Outstanding content! Too long for my personal preference.

Pnut's personal Challenge level: 4.2

Special notes:
*My screen would repeatedly freeze for 1.0- 2.0 seconds (very aggravating) through the whole game. I've never had this problem with any other scenario. I'm not sure how, but my Barracks supplied my legions even without a source of weapons!! I would have given playability a 1.0 (or wouldn't have even finished it) with these bugs if I hadn't enjoyed it otherwise.

General overview:
Central Province, saved map. You have 464 months (38+ years) to complete the targets. Based on C3 Syracusae, it is a great trading city with neighbors and natives. Heavy demands mid/later game play keeps you on your toes! Read the creators' description/story they tell you what you need/want to know. A lot of thought went into this scenario and it is captured well in play.

Required by Caesar:
Culture -------- 60
Prosperity ----- 52
Peace ----------- 55
Favor ---------- 75
Population ---- 6000

What made it fun:
The overall challenge of keeping up with Caesars demands and trying to get my population up! Creative thinking with dock placement and warehouse management; balancing contents so I could "sell" the items!

What detracted from the fun:
That darn screen freezing.

What makes it unique:
The overall layout and the historical "feel" to the map. Having restrictions on buildings made it harder to manage housing development, therefore limited house size. Mega-warehouse management!

My personal wishes:
Fix what ever bug that is that makes the map freeze! I would like to play it again without it!! Fix barracks bug. More coastline for dock placement. Let me start it from scratch. I personally don't like housing blocks that compact, I prefer something with a view!
