File Details
Difficulty: Beginner
Number of episodes: 6
Minimap:
It is the 6th version, but this is the first version I've uploaded. I like god statues so you will recive 3 god quests from Zeus, Apollo and Poseidon. You will get large statues for completing each quest.
The other goals are easy. The map of the parent city is a good map and is very funny.

Von Kamstra This adventure cannot be played as you forgot to include the
adventure text.

Text in each episode is not mandatory to play an adventure; however, I fully agree that a lack of it detracts from the play experience.
Von Kamstra I want to correct my first comment. The adventure is playable although there is no adventure text. I forgot to copy and paste the pak file in the adventure folder therefore when I tried to play it I got a message stating adventure text not found. Without the pak file the adventure is unplayable.

Playability: 2
The adventure was playable, but that's it. It wasn't much fun: it was too easy and therefore rather boring to me. After setting up the basic city, I didn't have to do much about the game. I actually let it run unattended while waiting for a production goal to be achieved.

Balance: 1
The adventure is way too easy, and has way too many resources enabled. The player can produce everything needed to run a city, and export (among others) 72 sculptures a year, guaranteeing a debt-free and rather care-free adventure. The last episode of the adventure is very quickly won: the only goal is to have three trade partners, and when you don't anger your neighbours, you have 9 trade partners already.

Creativity: 1
This adventure doesn't sparkle with creativity: the maps are empty, the world map could use some work (land trade routes straight through the Aegean sea?), and the trade partners should be revised a lot, especially within the colonies: sea trade routes where there is no water on the map, and the Ithaca colony doesn't even *have* land trade routes. There are no scripted events beside the three quests mentioned.

Map Design: 2
The maps were bland and boring, especially the colony maps: both colonies were just a plain empty map with a swath of meadow painted on it. Not cities I'd like to play in for long, and indeed I got out of both colonies within a year. The reason this is not a 1, is because I actually liked the small corner of resources on the main map.

Story/Instructions: 1
There was no .txt file supplied with the download, so every single in-game text said "Adventure text not found!". The description given here on the download is meagre, indicating only that the player will receive three quests in the first episode. Supplying a .txt with the adventure with a very simple story would have increased the score here.

Additional Comments:
This adventure can be improved in many ways to make it more interesting to the player. As it stands now, it's a very easy adventure with plain-looking maps.
LovelyEKM Oh cool, I will try it. Thanks from Elizabeth. P.S. I am new here.
horiaonofrei There is an problem . the meadow it's too small ! why you not made the entire land with meadow ? and allow weath and carrot or something else ?
Senseisan An attempt leads to feed , provide fleece oil and wine to a 9000 guys city using a little more than half of the meadows ...
Use goats , you can set a lot of them on a little piece of meadow ( park them using olive trees or farms ...) .
