I tried to fill up every possible bit of space on this map and got just over 8k population. To win just dispatch last of the burial provisions; 3 blocks of granite. I put all of my workers in Homesteads as Barley supplies where initially limited and had not come to rely on Ra's increased trade blessing. Besides, Homesteads are something new and interesting to look at after so many cities of Common Residences.
Each and every island has its own community, and the mainland has 11 Stately Manors, the Palace and Temple Complex to Ra. Mastabas are scattered wherever there is space. This is the first mission where senate houses are available, so I decided to go for 100 Culture for the first time.
Only central island is farmed.
There was no need for any military in this mission other than a few towers to keep the Hippos at bay.
