Caesar III ► 10 Basic Tips & Tricks Guide - [City-building Doctor]
I have been playing a lot of Caesar III recently, dwelling in nostalgia and rekindling my love for city-building games.
Sierra's parent company Vivendi Games was later merged into Activision, which is a subsidiary of today.
So it would seem that all of the above games' publishing rights currently lie with Activision Blizzard please correct me if someone has more please click for source information.
And game like caesar 3 is where you come in, Reddit!
We have proven time and time again that we can cause a lot of momentum in many industries if the hive mind really puts in the effort.
As of now, Caesar III is the only game available through digital distribution.
I would personally love to see these games resurface, for players old and new to experience their depth and lose hours of time without realization.
The power of digital distribution for older titles was recently demonstrated by the release of.
By simply repackaging their content and releasing it at sale price, Microsoft must have made a bucket load of money in new sales for a 6-7 year old game.
On a related note, TotalBiscuit makes for Namco Bandai to release Dark Souls on the PC.
The publishers have nothing to lose, and a lot of money trickling into their pockets for many years to gain.
Can we bring this to their attention?
Perhaps by means of a petition and through emails?
If we can get all of the Impressions Games titles on platforms like GOG and Steam among othersthey would certainly be pleasant additions to their and subsequently, our gaming libraries.
For a start, I'm hoping redditors display a lot of support for this thread; and we can use this support to communicate our interest to the concerned publishers and later follow through with our wallets.
I love Caesar III.
Even re-bought it on GOG.
I had an itch yesterday for a more modern city running game, but there really aren't many.
Or if there are they're on-line Zynga types.
I think Anno 2070 is the only one in recent memory.
If there's any others they're not really making themselves known.
The Anno series is fantastic.
I've been playing a ton of Anno 2070.
It's one of the best city builders ever.
Ah awesome SMAC on GoG!
I've played Anno 1404 Dawn of Discoverywhich was quite good, but haven't tried Anno 2070 yet.
I wouldn't necessarily call it shitty just because it has DRM.
It has a lot of online features like voting for a faction and unlocking new structures and bonuses.
This is one of the cases where the DRM game like caesar 3 works in favor of the game itself rather than against it.
I've been playing Anno 2070 pretty consistently since I saw it appear on Steam, and I've got to say, it's pretty great.
However, I found out how ridiculous the DRM is after buying it, and though I don't plan on changing my computer's hardware around too much, I'm still pretty displeased with it.
Still, the DRM does have an actual effect to it, and it helps you progress in the metagame - not necessary, but nice.
At the very least, I highly recommend pirating it - otherwise, I'd say buy it for the awesome visuals and helping to develop a really, really cool new version of the Anno IP.
EDIT: That said, I highly recommend pirating it at this point.
Since Ubisoft is taking their servers offline to move them to a new location, and that'll make the game "unplayable" from the 7th to an undefined time, I don't feel that they deserve your money.
Go find it online.
I don't think it's worth what they are asking for it, and the online-DRM is frequently broken.
I fucking loved Master of Olympus: Zeus and the expansion pack.
Zeus was one of my favorites as a kid.
Recently found it and started playing it again and it's still fun.
Definitely would love to see a re-do of some of these games with better balancing and what not.
As someone said, the Anno games are about the only good city-building games I've seen in recent years.
I played the demo for Pharaoh way back in the day when I first got Caesar III.
I was hoping GOG would release it.
I remember playing a ton of Pharaoh.
Would love for it to come out digitally.
GOG, are you listening?
I remember playing a lot of Pharaoh.
I could never get more than one of my housing blocks to get above "mud hut" status, and that only by surrounding them with gardens.
Also I could never get the hang of making a working economy.
Trying to build pyramids was a giant pain in the ass.
Who else here plays games like Age of Mythology or AOE 3 on the hardest campaign difficulty, building up defense while at the same time trying to make the prettiest town possible?
In Age of Mythology in particular, the small footprint of the housing buildings as well as some really gorgeous maps had me spending hours messing around making the perfect little towns and hidden villages.
As far as gaming goes like you described, we currently have things like Anno 1440 and 2070, Settlers 6 and 7, and Cities XL 2012 although you seem to stick more so towards non modern ones, and I do love those.
I think actually we have good things coming along, but unfortunately for us Impressions Games ceased to exist with about Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom which is also my favorite out of the whole city building series.
They also made the horribly underrated Lords of Magic I don't know how else to describe it, I've never heard anyone speak about that game.
The brains behind Impressions more or less reformed into Tilted Mill Entertainment and that just kind of makes me sad thinking about it.
I think for me an issue was the very game like caesar 3 size of the maps.
Then they made Simcity Socities, which was a freaking disgrace, then Hinterlands which was an amazing concept that was fun but horribly shallow and unpolished, then a goddamned turn based strategy game about the?!
To be quite honest, unless they announce a big nice remake of one of the older titles I think this studio will simply close down.
Anyway, let me enlighten you with some city builders you didn't mention.
Grand Ages: Rome - a 2009 Roman city builder that has amazing graphics fun gameplay and family dynasty customization for bonuses, and combat that doesn't blow when it occasionally pops up.
Outpost 2 - an inhospitable planet colony builder where you will fight against the other group of colonists here and there, but the main enemy in each level is an ever approaching "Blight", a terraforming microbe gone horribly wrong, or intense seismic activity that makes volcanoes flood everything.
This one is a great deal older.
No problem, it was just put up on GOG recently.
I've been playing it a bunch again, de card chemin games fer like fan of it years ago.
Just went on reddit and searched for "games like zeus" this thread came up.
I just want game like caesar 3 true sequel to SimCity 4, if EA can make that, I'm sure it will make a lot of people very happy.
I think that it was probably the best RTS I've ever played and probably my most played game of all time.
If Valve could negotiate a deal with Microsoft to re-implement online multiplayer, but on Valve's servers I'm quite confident that a community would rise around it, as it already has on private servers.
