All buildings are on the big island and the only trade is by river. Similar concept to Brugle's Island Abu just without the smaller island. (I cheated a bit and copied his farm layout to fit 19 farms, but didn't look at anything else & I think I did everything else differently).
There's room for 4000 people in 7 Manors, 35 Fancy Residences and 1 Common Residence that will take a long time to upgrade. The city is stable at Very Hard until the plague event in a few years.
No bailout or debt were used. Initially set up 2 work camps farming flax, barley and grain, plus a gem mine, and added weavers and brewers to process the first year's crop. Started importing clay to make bricks with the straw. Linen, gems and bricks were exported and later the route to Men-nefer opened and beer sold.
The city grew steadily with cash always tight until the manors were formed. Food supply slowed down the final growth considerably - trying to feed 7 manors and 10 fancy residences 2328 fish/yr with imports of only 2500 was in hindsight a bad idea.
There's a city centre, basically all the big buildings around the manors. No loops were used for housing, just strips. Walkers from one school, a temple and the temple complex take "long walks".
The save is a couple of months out from victory with overall time 128 months.. the last 3 years really being a struggle to fill houses with fish.
