Early on in my Caesar III playing experience, a friend asked me how I envisioned putting a whole city together using small building blocks, such as my g-shaped variant of the 9×9 block, so I drew this diagram for him, explaining that in medium insulae housing, this tiny little section of the city would hold a whopping 4480 population!
Points worth noting here:
- The centralised distribution system
- The proliferation of markets
- The “undesirable” buildings being separated from houses with a barrier of gardens.
