Build a massive port city with a population of at least 50,000 people. There are no land trade routes.
This scenario must be played with the wonderful Augustus mod which does away with the sprite limit factor.
No military activity but there are big demands from Caesar. Be sure to meet the requests in order to make the favour requirement.
You have 90 years to complete the assignment.
I re-uploaded this map due to an update in the Augustus mod on 14.11.20.
Coast line is long, enough for clay. Large trees area for timber. Farmland just enough to feed everyone.
The land is somehow hard to fit everything. A larger map will make it more comfortable, but still playable, just a bit challenging.
The central huge farm land is amusing trick to exploit. Making use of it correctly the key to victory.
Map Design: 4
The land had to be 100% covered with building just to sustain housing, farming and employment. Also the sea access is very limited, so often docks suffer transferring goods from long distances, but still playable since olives is the single vital import.
While Caesar will require INSANE quantities, the extremely rich province will be able to support it, combined with the extra unemployed labor that can work for supplying what Caesar demands. Well done!
It's hard to keep unemployment rates low. I had to build many useless hospitals and universities just to lower unemployment, and never managed to get it below 10% once I reached over 40,000. This made it hard to keep population size as people leave for no jobs or stop coming, and also can't raise taxes above 7% due to unemployment. The trick was raising salaries to 50 Dinariis and taxes to 11%, this way taxes covers salaries which could exceed 70,000 Dn/year, no need for exports then. Made a fortune but with struggle. Pleasurable experience overall!

Hello librarian and thank you so much for taking the time to give my map a review. I'm very happy that you liked the scenario. I love the huge population cities and the Augustus mod gives the opportunity to make them.
I make quite a few of these types of maps and if I find one challenging then I upload it.
I have played Caesar 3 since it came out in 1998 and it is my favourite game. After downloading just about every scenario on Caesar 3 Heaven I just felt it was time I gave something back!
