Hello world, this is my first upload. I hope you will like it and see another person's unique building style for this wonderful game. I chose the city I like the most among those I've ever built, from aesthetical point of view. My main goal is not usually to max out the population and other ratings and build as efficiently as possible with various tricks and sophisticated housing techniques, but instead, build a naturally and beatuifully looking city, which is moreless stable and uses sub-optimal housing layout. In various missions, I'm trying to experiment and come up with different interesting layouts, but I keep my overall style I use.
I played this one on Hard difficulty and fulfilled just what is needed to win the mission (i.e. the population is just below goal of 15000, and after loading the final save, the mission will get won after some time by reaching goal population). I tried to lay out the whole city symetrically only on the big central island, with the most important central line with best quality houses, temple complex and obelisks. It feels pretty compact and balanced, with enough food/goods production and income.
In the zip you may find earlier stages of the city, the stage 8 being final one. I finished this city in 2014, but used to play Pharaoh a lot during 2000's as a kid, so I attached also saved game from the same mission, but played about 10 years earlier. Back then, this city didn't go really well and I disliked it more than others I made. So as an adult, I decided to repeat it and try better, and I personally think I succeeded.
I'd be happy for comments if you have anything to say.
