|August 14th. Aargh! They're back!|
|We thought they
were gone for good, but I guess you can never get away from them. Yes, the dreaded
market ladies are back...this time making an appearance in the Game
Anyway, a query of "how do they work?" resulted in an excellent post by C3.com forum regular Tom the Bold. If you're still puzzling about how market ladies work, then you couldn't do much better than to read his post. Here's an excerpt:
Market Ladies will always seek to replenish the "preferred food" for their housing area. The "preferred food" is the first food type that was provided to the area. It will remain the preferred food until all houses using that food type run out of it. At that point she will go to the nearest granary that has food. This food then becomes the preferred food type that she will seek. This is important because if you have granaries accepting multiple foods, then eventually the granary will run out of room for the "preferred food" as it fills up with less desirable food.

Remember, the Pharaoh beta signups are still on, and will be until August 20th. Pharaoh1.com is the place to be! I was able to sign up a few hours ago, so it looks like they've sorted out the problem with the non-US postcodes that was plaguing the signup form yesterday evening.
|August 14th, 1.00am GMT. Pharaoh beta test!|
|Yes, it's late
(or early, depending on how you look at it). Yes, it's a big headline. But
then it's a pretty big news story. If you missed out on the Age of Kings beta, and the Tzar beta, then all is not lost because you may get
a chance of beta-testing Pharaoh!
Head over to Pharaoh Heaven to get the full story.
|August 13th. Apeing around in the download section!|
|I love it when I
only have to cut and paste to update the news ;).
That all seems pretty self-explanatory. Check out the download section to see what's new. I also hear that AMM's added a few reviews for your reading pleasure. Should be worth checking out!
Oh, sorry about the mistake I made yesterday - I uploaded the wrong page to the wrong server, resulting in a brief switch between Caesar III Heaven and Pharaoh Heaven. I've given myself a stern talking-to, so it shouldn't happen again [yeah, right...pull the other one;) - ed].
A bit more news that'll gladden the hearts of all C3-lovers. Pharaoh looks like it'll be beta-ing any day now. And that means that you might get to become a beta tester. Head over to Pharaoh Heaven (and stay tuned) for all the latest information.
|August 12th. Time to post, people!|
|You can always
tell when there's a bit of a lull in the forums, because Cherub mouse comes to the rescue
with a "let's all introduce ourselves" thread ;).
Also, it seems that we've been attracting the more (now, how can I put this without offending some of our readers) "experienced" gamers out there. So, if you're one of our younger readers, then let us know who you are in the forum!
Seems like poor old Angel Alexander I at HGS Main News needs another shot of strong Colombian coffee. Here's what he wrote in the "Pharaoh Heaven News" section a couple of days ago:
Right, did that sound ok? If it did, then re-read it (I've added emphasis to help you find the boo-boo):
2 days? Wow, I thought it went quickly. Perhaps 2 weeks would be a better guess next time, eh Alex;)?
Ok, I'll now hide under the desk lest AAI's legendary poison pen strikes me down;).
|August 11th. What eclipse?|
|The eclipse has
been and gone here in the UK. Sadly, cloud cover meant that most people didn't get a
very good view of it, Alderney being the only part of the UK in the path of totality which
got anything like a decent view. So, if you got a good view, then tell
us about it.
Meanwhile, there's a debate about the future of the Caesar III Nobel Prizes forum following the departure of Cherub Onoculator and the demise of the C3NPs. Should the forum be closed or renamed - we want your views.
|August 10th. Eclipse fever!|
forum has been struck with eclipse
fever! It seems like quite a few of our European visitors will be staring at the
sky at 11am tomorrow watching the event. Here's what Incontinentia
will be doing tomorrow:
Does anyone know of any eclipses seen by the Romans - there must have been some. If you're familiar with that sort of thing, and the sort of reaction it provoked, then let us know in the forum!
|August 9th. Grand Villas and the 2nd type of wine|
|I received an
email this morning asking about the second type of wine needed to evolve from the Grand
Villa. I sent the sender a response, but by mail bounced a few times.
Therefore, I'll post it here and hope Soren's reading this.
Hope that helps.
|August 8th. Return of the Reck|
|I wasn't going to post any
news anywhere today - only got back home a few hours ago - but I saw that poor Angel
Alexander I was being swamped with news duties so decided to step in;).
Sad news today - Cherub Onoculator is no more. Here's what he had to say in the forum:
I'll close the C3NP Forum in a little while.
