Cities in Caesar III try to accurately reflect the life of Roman citizens- the lowest plebs live in tents and shacks, while the richest patricians live in villas. Staple foods include wheat, fruits, vegetables, and pork, and wine is required for some festivals and houses. Citizens wander the streets in their various garbs and can tell the player their name and how they feel about the city.

The city is viewed in a two dimensional isometric view with a fixed magnification level, and can be rotated ninety degrees.

Access to services such as market goods, entertainment, hygiene, education, and taxation are represented by "walkers," which are people sent out from their buildings to patrol the streets. Any house that is passed by a walker is considered to have access to the services of the walker's building. All movements of goods and coverage of walkers are accurately reflected by citizens walking the streets: a player can watch a farm's crop progress, and when it's ready a worker will push a full cart from the farm to a nearby warehouse or granary; then return with an empty cart.

Battles are fought by instructing a legion to march to the enemy, then arrange themselves in a particular formation. After this the soldiers take over and fight the battle.

There is no terrain editing, other than permanently removing trees to clear land for building.

Short video clips are played for significant events, such as city milestones or messages from the Roman Emperor.

A manual accompanies Caesar III, though there are minor discrepancies from the game in some editions.

Compared to other strategy games set in Antiquity, Caesar III focuses more on city-building than fighting, though invaders will sometimes attack the player's city. There are two ways to play the game: Mission Mode, which is tantamount to typical "campaign" modes of other strategy games, and Builder Mode, in which the player plays one scenario from scratch.

[So, you want that widescreen resolution? ;)]

7. Download one of these files depending on your screen resolution: 1920x1080 1920x1200 1680x1050 (This is NOT my work. I just host versions myself in case the original files get lost on the internet. You can find the official release post and download links here)
8. Right-click the wrapper and select "Show package content".
9. Navigate to "drive_c/Program Files/Caesar 3/".
10. Rename the original c3.exe in case you need it again.

12. Now go back to the directory where the Wineskin application is located and open it.
13. Click on "Set Screen Options".
14. Set "Resolution" to 1920*1080, 1920*1200 or 1680*1050 depending on the file you downloaded.

Does it have a working map editor?

This is only a wrapper. You have to install the game. If the install includes an editor you will probably be able to use it. I haven't tried it yet.
Can someone make it work with 10.5?

You may try it under 10.5. I don't see why it shouldn't work.

But if its incompatible I won't be able to help you though since I don't have 10.5 anymore and therefore can't test it.
Hello, I've tried the following:

1. Created a folder called "Ceasar 3" in drive_c/Program Files/
2. Copied all of the pre-intsalled PC files and folders into drive_c/Program Files/Caesar 3/
3. Under Winskin advanced, chose /Program Files/Ceasar 3/c3.exe to be the executable file
4. Double clicked on the Ceasar III icon for the wrapper.

After this, I get a black screen with a menu bar and nothing else for a long time. Activity Monitor says Ceaser 3 is running at 2.5% CPU.

You're on Mountain Lion, right? I uploaded a new version of the wrapper. Should fix the problem.

Thanks! Its working now. I'm on a 10.8 Macbook Air. I'll be testing it for the new couple of days and weeks.
Thanks for the quick response.
I am downloading to plan to play it this spring break.
I'm new to this, and still struggling.

I got it to install and run, but it only runs the first time. If I quit, or restart my computer, the wrapper/application crashes on launch. If I re-import the application into the wrapper, it works again, but I have lost my saved games.

While I am getting very good at the first few levels, this is unsustainable...

Never had that problem, and currently you're the first one reporting it, so I don't have clue right now.

Try the first two things coming to my mind:

1. Re-download the wrapper. Maybe yours got broken somehow.
2. Repair disk permissions. Always a good tip when somethings goes wrong.

Tell me if it solved your problem.

2. Create a folder called "Ceasar 3" in drive_c/Program Files/
3. Copy all of the pre-installed PC files and folders into drive_c/Program Files/Caesar 3/

Read the last comment before yours again... CAREFULLY!... and all questions are answered!
I bought the game from GOG.com, and am having trouble figuring out how to get the .exe (specifically called setup_caesar3_2.0.0.9.exe) that I downloaded there to translate into something to place into the Program Files section. When I open it, it opens textedit. Do you know how to help?
