Well this ones a real tester!!
Libraries, Libraries, Libraries! to get the culture up. OMG it was So frustrating. Keep your population down as much as possible (no population requirement needed) - but remember the citizens in the 4 Palatial Estates dont work! so it's a fine balance.
Just feed your main pop grain and game meat, and give the estates red meat and fish on top of the grain and game meat.
Plus Pharaoh keeps asking for fish as well. Theres also not a lot of places to put your fisheries.
DON'T bother with warships like the walkthrough says you'll need.
I never had to use them. what a waste.
You just need two transport ships with Academy trained archers for a one off request from Pharaoh for troops.
And don't cull too many trees, apart from trade you need it for the 2 obelisks.
No need for savings, you cant carry it over here. Its the last mission of the Middle Kingdom.
