Cuicul, a Caesar 3 beauty contest created and designed by Caesar Clifford.

The name is taken from this existing Roman city.

Djemila, Algeria
Like a postcard with a surreal setting, the site of Djemila, also a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a spectacular remnant of the Roman Empire. In Arabic, Djemila means "beautiful one" but its Latin name was Cuicul. This mountain village on the northern coast east of Algiers (near the city of Batna), has some of the best preserved Roman ruins in North Africa. Exceptional buildings include a theatre, two fora, temples, basilicas, arches, paved roads and a residential area, streets and houses. The city was built as an outpost during the first century AD by a colony of Roman soldiers and expanded to become a large trading market. The city fell into disarray and was abandoned after the fall of the Roman Empire in the late fifth century. Interestingly, Muslim settlers never built over the city resulting in an excellent state of preservation.

I, Caesar, am sending you into Algerium to build me a beautiful city. Money is no object and I will supply you with another large amount should you use what I give you first. I wish to come and inspect this city when you are finished. I trust you will succeed in delighting the eye with your finished city.

Designer's Notes

Specific Designer's Rules:

TYou may use any difficulty level you wish and even change it as you wish. Therefore you may name it under any difficulty level and submit it in the available difficulty. For those who want a definite level to play at please play at normal difficulty.
You may discuss any and every part of your city during the contest in as much detail as you wish. The only thing you can't do is give your file to anyone else before the contest closes. This is different from normal contests .

Entries will be limited to one per player. However you can submit as many as you wish. The last one submitted will be your official entry unless you say otherwise before the contest closes.

For this contest there is no need to make regular saves. Since it is just a beauty contest and the time you take does not matter there will be no requirement to make any saves. For your own peace of mind though please remember to make some saves so you don't lose all your hard work.

The designer is eligible to enter this contest and intends to put an entry in. A list of entries will be posted on the forum at regular intervals and because of the nature of this contest all entries will be assumed to be valid when they are sent in.

The contest will be open for one month. Then the entries will be split into different quarter final groups with public voting , using the poll option on the forum. Winners progressing to semi finals and thence onto the final. One week will be allowed for voting in each round and it is expected that 3 rounds will be enough. However if we get a lot of entries we may make it 4 rounds. Further information on this process will be available at the appropriate time. Once the contest has closed and voting begins any other Caesar3 contest on the way may begin.

Every member of CBC, whether they enter the contest or not, is eligible to vote in this contest.
Judging will be based on the look of the city, taking no account of rankings, population or debt levels. Simply, vote for the city you think is the most beautiful. It will be interesting to see what the majority consider to be the most beautiful city.

Cuicul was designed by Caesar Clifford and translated into French by Arcan. Have fun!
