Logically more businesses means less unemployment, but choosing
the right industry is important. Heavy industry structures and
marketplaces should be the best choice. Even building forums will
make a slight dent in unemployment.
To get a good game going, try the following:
Try to start building your city between two rivers or better
still and area of land where two rivers converge. Instead of
building walls to enclose the city put down a line of wells
- the barbarians can't cross water or destroy the wells so
your city always gets off to a good start.
Raise your personal income to around 100 denari so you can
build up a personal fortune. The way you can use your wealth
to invest when times get hard. Only accept promotion when
you've got maximum personal fortune.
Don't build houses close to industry and workshops - people
won't live there and the houses won't get past the second
stage of development. People want to live close to the forum
- bath houses and oracles. Make sure houses have the necessary
water supply and if you build roads near them they're much more
likely to grow.
Don't forget to take care of the provincial level - you must
keep the barbarians out of your city. Increase the slave wages
and army wages straight away - it's worth making the army wages
absurdly high. Assign more slaves than you need to all the duties
(particularly fire prevention) and when you've recruited plenty of
soldiers switch to the provincial level. Place a couple of cohorts
as a precautionary measure and make them patrol around our city.
Spend some time on the provincial map watching for where the
barbarian ships are landing and when you see where the troops
come ashore. Put a line of wall along the coast. The next time
the barbarians land they should be trapped on the beach and they
won't be able to knock down the wall. You can now carry on building
your city in peace just make sure the walls don't deteriorate.
