  • I'll bet that the dancer issue could be related to the difference between those two areas. What I see in the statistics overview is a difference of road type, and the road type close at hand is plaza. Doesn't apply for both but it stood out. This requires some experimentation I gather.

    Another thing to consider, which doesn't explain the glitch but does aggravate it, is that you have all these offshoot and unconnected road types to improve efficiency and limit exposure to better housing. It likely exasperates the problem of narrowing the spawning areas.

  • Hey there, I already started many tries (even on very low difficulty) with different types of 'theroetical' stablized housing blocks. I built all the necessarily needed service buildings like a lot of them I also made sure to have like up to three garneries filled with different food types and made sure the Bazar(s) only buy like grain to prepare the next step but houses start evolving anyways and soon I can't supply enough goods to keep it stablized so ppl start leaving and suddenly I don't have an unemployment of about 3-8% no I'm short of hundreds of workforces.

    Is there a tip or strategy you can suggest for that case?

  • Hi, I used to play this game when I was 11-12. I had a Windows Xp back then. I have a Windows 10 now. I'm not sure how to get this game on Windows 10. Could you help? I really enjoyed this game as kid. It taught me early about how economies and governments ought to work.

  • Excellent video! Reveals a bunch of stuff that took me years to learn on my own and I had the game way back when it first came out back in the 90s. The population thing, the road thing, the storage yard thing. And remember this came out when the internet was crap and the in game info was cryptic at best.

  • Thank you, I've recently found this game on GOG. I'm in early stages. How do you overcome unemployment?

  • What ? Storage yards don't need a road connection ? Eeeeh… but how the fire marshall can access to it or architect if it breaks ? I don't get it :/

  • You didn't mention very importsnt fact about employees. ITs all about where they are living. Having only high standards houses would cause lack of physical workers 😉 This game has really developed mechanics after all :O

  • I don't know if anyone has this bug but I'm currently experiencing the problem of buildings not showing they have workers, like for example my fire station and everything has workers but the animation isn't there. Does anyone have a solution for this? I'm using the steam version of the game.

  • Nice game. However, Caesar 3 is my favorite "construction" game, you can actually see what's happening on the map, even if it's full of buildings and stuff, it's much cleaner than Pharaoh. In this game I have difficulty seeing / finding everything …

  • To deal with the population issue and immigrants, I will (save first) devolve entire city blocks by deleting the water supply. Once the houses have gone back to being basic, put the water back and they will reevolve almost instantly.
