March 6th\7th   -  Music and Maps!

Get down to the Dirt Roads!

Those cool guys over at Impressions have brought out yet another .mp3 file for your listening pleasure.  This week's is called "Dirt Roads", and sounds pretty cool:).  Head over to their site to check it out!

Loads of other stuff to relate to you today - the first is the happy news that Angel Monty's Monkey has added some scenarios to our downloads section!   Nice one MM!  Also on the topic of scenario building, there's a great thread in the Map Editor forum dealing with just that topic.  It's well worth checking out if you're interested in the finer points of map design, since there are some great tips there.  Click here to get there:).

Here's one for our UK visitors.  If you subscribe to PC Format at the moment, then you can get a free copy of C3!  Worth a look if you're thinking of getting the game and regularly read that excellent publication;).

GS wants to know about YOU!

Our fantastic hosts, Gamestats, are interested in learning more about the people who regularly visit either them or their affiliates.  To this end, they have set up a special survey for their great visitors to fill out.  And, there's the chance of winning a prize in their weekly draw!   Interested?  Of course you are!  Get over there and fill out the questionnaire!

Moving back to C3H, the latest topic of interest in the forum is the number of posts made by our regulars.  Head over there and check it out, and let me know (by posting in that thread) if I've missed anyone out;).

March 4th   -  Let's go all historical...

Since it's a pretty quiet day in the Roman Empire today, I thought that I might have a rummage around the Archives section and see what I could come up with.  Well, I found (apart from a few cobwebs and quite a few dust bunnies) the first ever news item, posted on 12th October last year by Angel Alexander I.  Here's a little excerpt:
Welcome to Caesar 3 Heaven!   The site that keeps you updated on all the latest news being generated about this amazing game. This site is still under massive construction as we try to play through this challenging game ourselves, so please bear with us.

We do have a couple of areas open for business, however.  If you haven't tried out Caesar 3 yet and are wondering why we are doing a Heaven site for it, first, read the great preview in our Strategy section, and then head over to our Download area. Download the fab demo and see for yourself how much fun it is to rule an ancient Roman city.

If you want to check out the rest of that news story, and other stuff from that particular week, then you can get it here.  By the way, let me know if you prefer the font bold or not - any other feedback is also most welcome:)

March 3rd   -  A Big Shakeup in the Downloads Section

caesar1f.jpg (7150 bytes)

Today sees the commencement of a new era in the Caesar III Heaven downloads section.  Angel Spineman has departed in order to concentrate on other HGS sites.   Thanks for all your help over the past 5 months, Spiney, and good luck with Majesty Heaven and all the other HGS sites you are involved with!

So, who is replacing him? I hear you cry.  Well, the onerous task of updating the downloads section has been split up.  From now on, please send all cities and misc stuff to Angel Draco.  If you have a scenario to submit, please send it to Angel Monty's Monkey.   Finally, if you have a review, then please send it in to Angel Stef.

Yes, we do indeed have a new Angel.  Everyone please welcome the promotion of Cherub Monty's Monkey to Angelic status!  Congratulations, Monty, and welcome to the upper reaches of Heaven!  He's started work straight away, and has updated the downloads section with an extra scenario.  Watch this space for more to follow;)!

By the way, if you are surfing the Net and find anything that is Caesar III related, then please send it to me so that I can mention it in the news.  Full credit will, of course, be given:).

March 2nd   -  Goings-on in the Forum

Great stuff in the forum today!  Get over there and have a look at the best thread I've read in a long time - will the market lady be condemned?  Or will a darker conspiracy engulf the whole city?

Also, seems like there have been some phantom wine casks spied in Lutetia...Head over there to get the full story!

When you've checked them out, head over to our sister site Age of Empires Heaven for news of a rather cool-sounding television programme that might well be of interest to you out there;).

March 1st   -  Any more questions to Darrin?

Our interview with the art director of C3 and Pharaoh, Darrin Horbal, will probably take place some time this week.  So, if you've got any more questions for him, then now is the time to ask!  Head over to the forum and submit your questions directly to Draco.

Also, are you really annoyed at those darn market ladies who refuse to collect food from the nearest granary, and head off to check out the javelin throwers whilst their own neighbourhood is devolving due to a lack of food?  Well, here's your chance for some revenge!  Get into the General Forum and put your case in The Roman Empire v. The market lady.  I'll look forward to the judgement;).
