|August 28th Mystery of the Disappearing News Page|
|Okay, I'll admit it,
I guess I forgot to I actually hadn't uploaded the news page, after answering my last post
(of the day <G>) Silly me...
At least I can make this a shortish news flash now, as yesterdays news isn't quite stale yet.
|August 27th Designed Any Good Scenarios Lately?|
Monty's Monkey has uploaded four new scenarios that can be found here.
Only four, I can hear some of you grumble. Well, he would love to upload many, many more scenarios, but it seems people are not sending them in anymore. So, if you've designed a nice scenario and want us to enjoy it too, why not send it to Angel Monty's Monkey.
Several new people have found their way to the Game Help forum. If you want to share your Caesar III expertise, please give them a helping hand. Claudia Gallica is asking questions about a topic I haven't seen before: In-efficient Housing blocks.
Now I should go back to playing games, but I need to answer one more post.
|August 26th Almost Asleep on the Keyboard|
|I was working my way through
my angel-mail, no, it's not raining, and forgot the time. So now someone is wanting me to
call it a night and get myself to bed.
Let's give you a quick forum update before I doze off.
On the Test forum several people are enjoying themselves with images and colours, so if you want to brighten up your posts just mosey on down there.
The Technical forum is suffering from a Mac attack. The question is, can ET handle it?
G'night Reckless. G'night Jayhawk. G'night mouse, G'night Wendoolicus, G'night all
|August 25th Happy Birthday to Who?|
|This is hard to get into
again, still thinking about what to put up here...anyroad, let's go to the forums. Want to
First of all there's a liquid discussion going on the the Community forum, that goes by the misguiding title, Who's Jack Daniels? (Not talking whisky). Never mind the first couple of posts, but go right here for the drinks bit.
Oh well, let's get back to the title of
this news flash, so who's the birthday boy (or is it a girl?)
|August 24th Webwars VI: Return of the Jayhawk|
|Read it and weep, or
rejoice, but the ' Hawk has finally found his way back to the Caesar III Heaven newspage.
To cut a long story short, moving had it's problems and so did a new PC with ISDN
connection. Now I can gladly say, this box here zooooooooms!
So what's going on here?
Keeping up with Reckless, I first want to bring a little bit of Pharaoh Heaven news to your attention. A host of angels, lead by Angel Draco, created Life on the Nile. It's a trivia script, like the city building facts on this main page, but there are a lot more facts to be found than can be found here. Mine just told me
My advice, click the above link to go to the main page, and keep on clicking, 'til you've seen them all. Of course you have to redo this every couple of weeks, 'cause we just might update our collection of Egyptian facts.
Apart from that there's quite a few people telling us on the forum they have to go back to school. Well, I can only wish you good luck <G>
|August 23rd. All about futures|
|There's a thread
in the forum in which I ask a question which I would appreciate everyone answering (I know
that's a bit hopeful, but it's worth a try;)). Here's my post:
I was wondering how you think this site should progress. With the release of Pharaoh approaching at an ever increasing rate, it's clear that attendance here will reduce pretty soon.
It might be increasingly difficult to keep updating the site as regularly as we are at the moment. After all, I'm away in Germany from the last day of September, and I don't know if I'll be able to use the phone sockets there with my modem. Angel Jayhawk is heading to the US, once again uncertain of an Internet connection. This leaves AAI in charge of updating 3 sites every day. He's busier than I was when I had to do the same thing, so 1 site might have to be allowed to lag behind.
From a personal point of view, I wouldn't like this site just to be deleted because the sequel has come out - it can continue to be a resource for future C3ers. So, what would you expect from this place post-Pharaoh?
So, have you got any thoughts about the future of this site? I'd be interested in hearing them!
|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.
