Bought the game, need tips.
I was looking for an city builder and bought this joy, but i am still a bit lost in all you can do in the game, for what i've played, the "range" of the buildings were really driving me crazy, you really need to build everything soo close? Like, its almost an butcher shop at each corner.

Also, id like tips on how to get the game going.

thanks and sorry for english mistakes.

Yeah the ranges on buildings is ridiculous. I don't know why it's so small.
You just have to plan ahead a bit and leave room for adding stuff later so that you make the most of each building.

Is there no way to increase it? Maybe an mod or something? I've managed to get some nice little cities working, but i wanted to build on the whole map and that is just not possible.

It is very much possible to fill entire maps. I do it all the time. My tip would be to alternate with buildings: try to use butcher shops, but also bakeries, inns and (that other building, the one that gives Entertainment as well) to spread your food resources a bit.

Temples take up the most space usually though, so when you start building a new area for your city, start with a temple, then place everything else around that.

(See my account for a handful of screenshots where I pretty much filled the map...)

I didn't find it to be an issue. Perhaps that is because I grew up playing Caesar and Pharoh.

Ceasar and Pharaoh were exellent games. You touch up my nostalgy.Grand ages slitly remember Ceasar. But their are different city building principles.

well, the range is not an important thing..there is nothing that says you can build several of the said building, so you long you got the main materials/goods for it...therefor you can upgrade your farms and mines... Jan 19, 2013 @ 7:55pm 
It plays so hard in comparisson to imperium romanum...
