August 21st\22nd. — All quiet on the Roman front
I seem to be having a thing about having the word "front" in the title of my news updates at the moment for some reason.  Still, here we are with the weekend update.  Oh, by the way, the reason for there only being 1 update this weekend is twofold.  On one hand, I've been looking around for a new computer (which I bought this morning :-) ), and there have also been some problems - check Pharaoh Heaven for an explanation.

Ok, so what's going on in the C3 community at the moment.  I'll be honest, things are very, very quiet.  Whether this is because of the summer holidays (northern hemisphere) or because people are keeping their posting powder dry until the release of Pharaoh, who knows.  I guess we'll find out in a few weeks, when Pharaoh hits the shelves.

There are a couple of interesting threads in Reviewers' Corner at the moment.  One asks for the name of a good peaceful map, and a Bob the Lethargic is announcing the release of Portgate - Dere Street Road.

And don't forget, there are more than just forums here - follow the links on the left to see some more of the site.

August 20th. — Problems on the home front?
Just time for a speedy update again, I'm afraid.  Why the odd title?   It's because someone on the Game Help forum has been having problems in Londinium (my home front).  Here are the details:

I was wondering where to put these [industrial buildings].  How should I go about balancing pottery for in/and export?  I know I'm not the only one stuck in Londinium.  So far I started from scratch 4 times.  Shouldn't I build below the small farmland at all?   All the ratings are way above needed except the prosperity.  Any info would be great, since I don't wanna win cheating.

If you have any suggestions, post them here.  I'm sure all help will be gratefully received.

August 19th. — Pharaoh info just keeps on coming!
Pharaoh is sounding better all the time.  Check out Pharaoh Heaven to see why.  Also, don't forget that beta signups will cease tomorrow, so don't delay!

Ok, I guess you're probably all sick of me yakking on about Pharaoh Heaven now - I've just looked down the page and there have been links to PH in every one of the past 4 news stories.  Sorry about that, I'm just eager that people should start looking around there, after all...it's where all the excitement is going to be in the near future.   If Impressions are still shooting for an October release, then I guess that's when our Caesar III Heaven visitors will start to trickle away to PH (hopefully;)).   Remember, however, we won't be closing this site down for a very long time, though you'll have to forgive us if the news updates become more sporadic following Pharaoh's release.

Down to some C3-related stuff now.   There was some hope earlier on in the Game Help forum that wolves might not be as bad as they first seem, with the thought that they could be turned against enemies attacking your city.  However, I think it's now been decided that such a move is unfeasible.  If you know differently, then let us know!

August 18th. — Pharaoh Heaven has some news!
Just a quick update today, I'm afraid.  Pharaoh Heaven has been the place to be for exciting news for the past week or so, and today is no different.   I've managed to get an exclusive interview with one of the Impressions guys when he's in London at the beginning of September.

Clearly, I'll be needing your questions.   Head over to Pharaoh Heaven for the details.

August 17th. — Return of a regular
It seems to be "return of the regulars" this week in the forum.   Yesterday we had kaluhiok, and today we've got another former regular here returning to the fold.  He's a bit lost right now though, and wants to know what's been going on recently.  If you're up to it, then please let him know!

Yet more exciting news over at Pharaoh Heaven today too...

August 16th. — One for the number-crunchers
If you've been visiting us for a long time and have spent some time in the forums, then you'll know that there are quite a few people who love taking a look right inside the workings of C3.  A name you might remember who was particularly associated with this was kaluhiok.  Well, now he's back, and as inquisitive as ever.

So, if you like nothing better than number crunching, check out his thread about labour in C3.

Don't forget, the Pharaoh beta signups are still ongoing.  If you've already signed up but didn't read the agreement you signed by clicking on the "I Accept" button at the bottom of the form, then please take a look at what's happening in Pharaoh Heaven today.

August 15th. — Some site-related changes
I had a spare hour or so today, so decided to do a bit of general site updating.  Here are the main changes:
  • The Caesar III Nobel Prizes forum has gone
  • Angel Abelius has been removed - I haven't heard anything from him for over a month.  His pages will be deleted from the site when our download Angels have put any of his downloads which aren't currently in the general Caesar III Heaven download section in there.
  • Accordingly, the Abelius's C3 Page forum has been removed.
  • The test forum has therefore become forum number 7.
  • The archives have been updated with last week's news.
