LEPTIS MAGNA

Consolidate Africa

-- Mission briefing --

"You are on your way to Africa, Governor! You will be heading to Leptis Magna, where I want you to build a somptuous city and and an entry port for Africa. If the objectives I set you seem high, do not worry, for there are more than enough ressources and fertile land in Leptis Magna to allow you to build a great city. The neighbouring cities are also impatient to start trade with your region."

"Now that the Carthaginians are history and that the Greeks and Egyptians have been submitted to the empire, no one can challenge the supremacy of Rome over Africa. However, small bands of Berber nomads are still defiant to our authority, and they will certainly covet the richness of your city. But some peaceful tribes will only ask of you to be let alone in their mountains."


My 3rd scenario, I made it a few months ago but forgot to put it up. The military is less important this time, but the objectives are much higher. For those who play, I'd really like at least some impressions, no need for a full review. And if you actually beat I'd like to know how.

Paulus the 1st This was a very nice scenario. Lots of open ground to lay out nice, neat city blocks. The demands for oil messed with me a little, but the invasions were relatively easy to handle with Legionaires.

Thanks for posting it. I've been desparately waiting for new challenges.
joshofet Since Barberousse asked for comments rather than a review, I'll withold my ratings. In my view this map is better than the previous two. Military is a bit weak, I used only javelins since it is hard to get the infantry near the invasion point in time, unless you know where the attack will come. I didn't, and the invaders are so weak that I rarely lost more than a few of my men. If it is clear in advance where the attacks will come, from a hint or the map itself, it wouldnt hurt to make it harder.

I guess I built too slowly, since in the end I ended up shuting down the major moneymaking industry, weapons, which I sold to the natives through two getting warehouses right next to the centre. Economy is rather simple with native trade, you might leave it out. Finish in 50AD.

I tried to feed my people on fish, since there is so much room for wharves on the shoreline, but the fishing points are too far out to make it really compete with the wheat. In hindsight it would have been much easier to go for the wheat. In comparison to Capua and Carthago Nova the scenario is a bit too simple, a bit less farmland and 8000 population makes it more of a challenge.

More varied request, or explain why you only ask for two items, the city can produce so much more. Didn't check the price changes this time, any rationale behind them?

Culture a bit high to my taste, though my desert blocks have more room (and need) for that, so parks are easily avoided. Prosperity is OK, I had a LI-LV city with a few feeder huts, even 100 would be simple. Peace no problem, KR not too difficult.

Map is nice, I couldn't find a map of the original city, seems like you had one. Stareting date of 14AD seems a bit early, the city reached its peak later, about 190AD, don't think anyone will play the mission that long.

This would be the same comment I would give in a review, ratings would be similar to Capua.

You can give ratings if you want joshofet. I was actually much prouder of making this scenario along with the next one than my first two.

I didn't think it was so easy. I couldn't finish it myself, my city was too spread out. And at the beginning the population goal was 8000, but I lowered it. It's true however that the invasions are weak, although you could see it coming from what Caesar says.
I made the starting date 14 AD because from my research I learned that it was incorporated into the empire under Tiberius (14 AD - 37 AD). I found a map using Google images I think, or maybe Google Earth.
Other than that I could make another invasion point and lower the export products prices at some point. But the natives are staying, I really like them.
