I've downloaded PDC v2.0.14 and (after a couple of days) I think I've got it working. However, I can't seem to do two things: 1. find any maps to work on (on Itjtway right now) and 2. when I do try and pull up a city, it tells me it can't because it's not a landscape file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

PDC was made for designing housing blocks. It won’t do what you want it to do. (Lay out an entire city on an existing map.)

However, there is a program that can. I will run down the links, and post back here in a few minutes.

The program that you want to use is "Pharaoh City Desire Calculator" developed by Djed djedi. It is an "Excel" spreadsheet, and you will need "Excel" (or a compatible spreadsheet program) to run it.

The program is discussed in the thread New city designing tool, and you can download it from here. (The links in the opening thread are not correct.)

And thanks to Nero Would, we now have Excel maps of all of the Pharaoh and Cleopatra campaign missions. They can be found in Pharaoh Heavens Miscellaneous Downloads. These maps are compatible with, and can be copied into, Djed djedi’s spreadsheet. See the thread Family History maps in Excel format for more information.

I spent a great deal of time working with Djed djedi debugging the program, and it corrects some of the desirability mistakes that are in the PDC program. "Pharaoh City Desire Calculator" is a "cut-and-paste" application, and once you get familiar with it, it is faster, easier to use and more flexible than PDC. If you have any problems understanding, or using the program, post your questions in the New city designing tool thread.

Thank you so much for the quick reply. I will follow the links you suggested.

Again thanks,
