Topic Subject: Elite housing doesn't need water?

Is this true? It says somewhere in the manual that elite housing don't need fountains, they've got their own well.....

If so, then I'll save myself a few Dr.

Darth, this is true. If you have a more evolved elite house, you will see a small source of water on its ground too.

They also don't seem to need infirmaries - I've never seen any kind of plague in an elite housing block.

It might have spread from the poor housing though, I'm not really sure, but it killed off my army

It appears from the model file data that elite houses can have a risk of disease (and therefore need an infirmary) if the difficulty level is set at Titan (hard) or Olypmian (very hard) but not at the other levels.

But, Reck.. I had a plague guy wander over from the common housing and infect my Elites on Hero Level..

I keep my pleb and elite housing well separated, so that wouldn't happen to me .

I didn't have my common housing close to my elite houses but still my elite houses were infected. It happened instantly so a walker couldn't have come by. Luckily, Apollo cured all of my citizens.

same as Octavian, only I wasn't worshipping Apollo (Ares, Athena, Demeter, Aphrodite - anyone notice a pattern with the last 3? - only worshipping Ares because I was going conquering-crazy, plus I'd already built his sanctuary earlier, as a goal.....)

From what I have observed, it seems that if a plague breaks out, it can hit any house - and those without medical coverage would be first probably, no matter whether elite or worker class.
As long as the overall hygiene situation was near perfect and everybody in the city had enough food, I didn't have any problems with plague even in Tenements (highest level without oil) that were left without medical coverage for several years. Steady supply of food helps a lot against plague...
BTW, playing at Titan.

Add me to the list of people who never supply infirmaries to elite housing. Even in my new mixed block, the infirmary walker will never reach the mansions.
The way it seems to work is your city gets an overall health rating based on the percentage of population with infirmary coverage and percentage with food. If you keep the bulk of your population supplied with infirmaries, the small number of elites won't affect the percentages much and no one gets the plague. Not a lot of people actually live in those big things.

The sanctuaries I built in Zeus & Europa were Athena, Artemis, Ares, and Aphrodite. I have never built Demeter's sanc., does it really have that much of an effect or is it worthless? I usually have lots of food in my cities and use very little meadow for agriculture. I don't know why my common housings were infected a infirmary was at my block and it was very efficient. Could houses that have new residents move in have there health coverage reset to zero?
