Alexandria: 59,000 people and 200 palatial estates
Posted on 12/05/03 @ 12:00 AM
200 full palatial estates exactly in a forever running Alexandria of 59,000 inhabitants. People are coming in too slowly now so I decided to stop the game. I never reached the data limit. I did not bother nor even try to reach the Culture rating of 80, a ridiculous achievement anyway for huge cities that would take the equivalent of the quarter of the map surface and need maybe 8000 more inhabitants only to provide with the necessary workers.
The game lasted 56 years as it was a didactic attempt, but I realized ¡V see below- that my major food aim could never be reached, thus I could have made it in 35-40 years (necessary time for all these people to come in). I finished the monuments in a 4 months interval in 18 BC, what is not so bad as I started importing marble and sandstone very late ; I also set the monuments up NW when the workers come from the deep South.
