I decided to choose Sawu for a progressive city, as many questions are
directed to it - how to build, where and when... There are 3 saves,
numbered from 1 to 3 - and below you can read a few remarks to these
Right at start both packs of hyenas were put into zoological gardens.
All industry than can bring income was set up as quickly as possible,
first of all papyrus production from imported reeds. Gradually I'm
adding gold mines, but except a few huts, palace, mines and service
buildings there is nothing in the Eastern part. I have already sent
weapons on first request and pottery is waiting to be dispatched. When
more trading routes will open, I will move the docks and papyrus
production into the northern part.
Main export commodity is now copper - after Buhen, another city has
appeared right now that wants to buy it - Iken. Papyrus workshops were
moved to north and replaced by weavers. Expanding in the Eastern part -
future luxury block currently at cottage level, new block is under
construction, granary center prepared. Fertile meadows on the island
being farmed. Importing sandstone and limestone for monuments, both is
stored near the entry point of map. Pullers will take it to the
monuments in no time, and traders are selling me lots of it, as they can
pass quickly through the city.
All is finished, as soon as workers finish the mausoleum, promotion
screen appears. Luxury block is stable, contains only Palatial estates,
most of them full.
