Downloads newsflash
ngel Draco just informed me Stringbags Perfect 4C city, can now be downloaded from our site. A slight glitch with the scripts and the original name kept it from being available when it was put up earlier.

For those of you that wonder what a 4C city is, it's a city where all scores are at 100.

Just one more thing, every now and then we get emails from people wondering about why the need a User ID and password before they can download scenarios.

Well, you don't.
The messages is generated by various Downlaod Accellerators, which are not supported by our sites. You'll just have to download them the old-fashioned way.

Mini-Competitions for Pharaoh and Caesar 3
rowsing through the forums I bumped into a message from Cherub Baltic. I guess this is what many of you have been waiting for:

Don't you think this forum looks sad when it is so deserted? Let's bring some life into it!
I know some of you can't wait to get their hands on a nice competition mission... but we won't start right now. First, I would like to invite you to take part in a Caesar 3 competition! I'm sure most of you have Caesar, too - well, if you don't, please be patient for a while. Pharaoh competition will come right after that.

I don't plan any big event right now, it will be just a few independent missions, like the preolympic competition last year. I have posted first preliminary info on C3 Heaven. More info will be available during the week... be sure to check Caesar Heaven on Friday 26th, if you intend to participate or are simply curious about the competition.
What? Still here?

Cleopatra's handwriting
ou may remember a thread a while ago which told you about a piece of papyrus that was found in an old museum? The papyrus contained a sample of one of Egypts best know pharaohs: Cleopatra.
Now if memory serves me well, it was not much more than her writing "Make it so" at the bottom of a request, but it's the only example found so far.

Well, that piece of papyrus is currently on display in the Allard Pierson museum in Amsterdam. It's part of a small exhibition showing some 250 artifacts of the time when Egypt was a Roman province.

I might find time to pop over there and take some pictures.
