Building a Roman City
Living in Insulae, or the “flats” as they were called, was either a blessing or a curse. There was no running water in the flats, so people had to fetch water from the many public fountains nearby. Fe insulae had their own toilets, so people used public lavatories located on the ground floor of the building. Insulae had no internal drains, so people threw their waste into gutters into the streets. Sometimes, they would not bother to walk down to the street, and heaved it out the window, no matter who was standing below! Woodburning braziers were the only form of heating used, but these were a great fire risk and there were no chimneys. As such, cooking was impossible for people living in Insulae, so people ate cold snacks or went to inns and bars for their meals. This was hardly a long walk, however, as the rooms at street level were sometimes let as shops or taverns. People rarely lived in the ground floor rooms of insulae.

|September 13, 2006 — Caesar IV Heaven Opens|
I know a great many of us have been awaiting this moment. Eagerly awaiting this moment. After playing every single Caesar 3 scenario in more ways than the designers thought possible..."Hey, let's do Carthago without prefects!" we can soon take on Carthago in a different way.
