March 14th   -  New cities:)

...the flag goes down.  And they're off!

It's like a chariot race over here at C3H at the moment!  In the blue chariot we can see Angel Draco...Angel Monty's Monkey in the red one.  They're charging round the virtual track seeing who can do the most updates of the download section.   Well, Angel Draco's just slipped into the lead at the moment, as he's updated the cities section with 3 new ones, including the Zoo scenario promised by Bob the Lethargic in the forum a little while back.  Should be well worth a look, don't you think?  Come on MM, you can't let Draco get too far ahead, can you?;)   Just 1 word of warning...don't delete the hippodrome when they're going round the track, or they'll get lost and run all over C3H...

Meanwhile, there's more great stuff for the musically-minded.   Impressions have released the latest .mp3 file from the game.  This time, it's another stirring ditty entitled "Overture".  Get it from their download section.

March 13th   -  C3 Footy!

If you're feeling particularly competitive and have already entered for the Caesar III Olympics, why not also have a go at the C3 World Cup?  Unlike the Olympics, it's being run on a league and group system (like the real-life world cup).  Get the full story and sign up for it here.

For those of you who want to find out more about the Roman Empire, live in the US and have cable, then there are some programs on tomorrow that will be of interest.  The Learning Channel is doing a mammoth run of its Rome: Power and Glory series after 12pm EST tomorrow, running for about 6 or 7 hours.   Learn more about it here.   If you do watch it, then let us all know what it was like!

March 12th   -  A Sad Day in Heaven

It's a sad day indeed in Caesar III Heaven today.  Why?   Because the angelic being otherwise known as the Techanator, Angel Stef, has succumbed to the lures of real life and left the staff.  *sniff*  We're all real sorry to see you go, Stef.  Good luck with your studies and everything - I'm sure they'll all go really well:).  Don't forget to drop back from time to time, and also pop round to Pharaoh Heaven if you've got some spare moments.

 

GS wants to know about YOU!

On a much happier note, have you taken part in the Gamestats survey?   If so, then your answers have been noted and read by the staff at GS, and are being put to use to improve the service that we all provide.  If you haven't yet participated, then what are you waiting for?  Get over there and have your say!   All forms are read by the GS staff, and will make a real difference!

March 11th   -  Happy Scenario Day!

It's all about scenarios in C3H's news today.  First, spurred on by Angel Draco's burst of activity  yesterday (which he's still recovering from;)), our latest angelic creation, Angel Monty's Monkey, has added 6 more scenarios to the download section.   There are a couple from scenmeister Gordon Farrell too - they're always worth a look, as they force you to play a different sort of game than that to which you have become accustomed in the careers.  Remember, we're always on the lookout for new submissions - if you've got a city that you're particularly proud of, then send it to Draco.  If you're more into designing scenarios, then they can be sent to Monty.   Anything else to Draco please:). Come on guys, let's keep these two on their feet!

Keeping on the theme of scenarios and map design, if you're just starting out and want to get to grips with the basics of creating a good scenario, check out Cherub Dragon2's Tips for Scenario Designers in the Map Design forum.  They're pretty informative, and will almost certainly point you in the right direction.

March 10th   -  C3H goes warp speed!

C3H goes into warp!

Great news for you all today - Gamestats has had a new pipe installed!  No, that doesn't mean that we are now sitting in front of the fire in our rocking chairs with a rug over our legs, smoking a pipe and remembering the good old days.  Instead, it means that all GS-hosted sites will load wayyyy quicker than they did before.  Since C3H is a GS affiliate, then you'll notice a difference here too:).

Download update!

More cool news today from the Windy City - Angel Draco has been a busy bunny burning the midnight oil to get some more stuff into the downloads section.   He's added another 9 cities, taking the total to over 100.  Well, I guess that just confirms that Caesar III Heaven is the largest C3 fan site on the Net!

March 9th   -  The new look forums are here!

Look!  A new forum!

Angel Mack has been really busy over the past couple of days getting the Caesar III Heaven forums upgraded to the new format.  For those of you who have already been, the changes are pretty clear.  However, 1 important thing to mention is that, due to the fact that the threads are not all shown on one page, there is no longer the 30 post limit to each thread:).

In these lovely new forums, Cherub Dragon2 has been busy sorting out competitions.  He's come up with the idea of a Caesar III Olympics!  Cool, eh?   Click here to find out more!
