|June 7th New Cherub Joins the Ranks of Caesar III Heaven|
|Just who might
that be, I can hear you wondering..?
Well, you know him. He's taken to the forums as a fish to the water. He even set a new record.
Yes, it's Caesar Ishaius. He will assist us in doing reviews for the Download section, filling in the empty spots there.
Did you ever wonder what the real Forum Romanum looks like? Well, here's you're chance. One of our Italian friend, a real Roman by the name of Roberto Riccitelli sent us the following link. Don't forget to browse the rest of the site.
Countrymen, lend me your ear...
|June 6th Several "Essays" Added to the Strategy Page|
|A couple of tidbits by our
very own Bob the Lethargic have been added to the Strategy page.
The first is a spreadsheet that can be used to calculate prosperity, the second is a Word document containing the statistics for the 40 cities on the Empire map.
Both were mentioned and discussed in various threads in the Scenario/Map Maker forum.
The Technical forum seems to be great success. Posts keep rolling in and most of our visitors apparently enjoy giving Cherub ET Flavius a helping hand.
Now why did I put that
magnet? On my motherboard...!?
|June 5th Tzar Finds Publisher|
|Tzar, the game many of us are waiting for, has found a publisher. If you
want to know more, just browse over to Tzar Heaven
and read the news, that's brought to you by our very own Angel
Reckless Rodent, who just doesn't seem to get enough of Heaven.
It seems we have a
whole new batch of people that recently started playing Caesar III, as the Game
Help Forum is overflowing with questions on the Career levels.
|June 4th Need a Challenge?|
Monty's Monkey has added
another seven scenarios to the Download page, two of
which were recently reviewed by Bob the Lethargic in the Reviewer's
It is obvious the Olympics are finished as more and more scenario reviews are rolling in.
The forum layout seems to have stabilised itself
and threads are growing again.
Last but not least the Abelius Caesar 3 pages have a new poll. This one concerns the fate of the modern world if those pesky Romans wouldn't have build their city next to the river Tiber.
slowly, testudo formation...charge!.
|June 3rd Caesar III Heaven Has Facelift|
|No, last nights
changes weren't enough. We had to change more.
The forum now has numbered topics. For all new visitors, the
No.1 Forum is for game help, the
No.2 Forum is to get to know each other.
The rest of the numbers were more or less randomly assigned.
Our sister site Pharaoh had a
small facelift as well. There's a cute little drop down combo box (can you tell I'm a
software developer? ) with links to some of the other hot items on the
The Strategy Page already received it's drop list, to quickly find the topic you are looking for.
Apart from that there are two game
competitions going on. One concerns Civilization: Call to Power and
is hosted by GameStats affiliate Apolyton. The other is held by GameStats themselves and
...and the forums they
|June 2nd Hurricane Hits Forum: Thousand Go Into Hiding|
|Some of you may have spotted the Topics thread, others may have looked in
vain or some familiar forums. Thousands of mails may have already been send to the
Here's the story of what happened.
In order to make the forum a bit more clear to newbies the Career Forum has been renamed to the Game Help forum. This is the place to ask all your questions about the normal Caesar 3 game and the careers.
The General Forum has been renamed to the Community Forum. This is where we put everything not directly connected to gameplay, such as wish lists, trivia, stories and anything that tickles your fancy (preferably it has a link to Caesar 3 somewhere...)
The Olympic Forum has been renamed the Abelius' Forum. Why do we need an Abelius forum? Well, this is the place to comment on Angel Abelius Caesar 3 pages. Of course comments on the Olympics can still be posted here as well.
It can be seen that the Olympics have finished, because it seems people have time to play and talk about scenarios again. The number of recent posts in the Scenario Review forum has increased dramatically.
not least we had a few tragedies on the Community forum. After reaching an all time high
of 267 posts the Alone Again thread reached critical mass and created a little black hole
on the forum. Sadly it dragged the Did you smile today thread with it and both are
irrevocably lost in the depths of cyberspace.
Sad but true, this new policy means that the current record of 267 posts will never be broken.
Captain, the engines,
they'll never stand it
|June 1st We Have a Winner!|
|Well, with another 30 posts or so added today, the Alone again thread is
definitely a winner. Last time I checked there were 217 posts, beating the previous record
A strange story of captured angels and well willing rescuers has snuck into the Greek or Roma thread. It seems like every thread is turning into a story thread.
visited the Scenario
Review forum for the first time and was treated on a wonderful introduction to Private
Estate Old Loyalties by Bob the Lethargic. A second review for Israel was added
this morning (CT)
Other than that it seems the Caesar 3 Nobel Prize event has been postponed to next Fall, if you want more details browse to Cherub Onoculator's thread.
Have I escaped from death
by AoE yet..?
