What a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t Package!!! Both the Patrician add on's to the "Gold" package have inoperative Key codes.
I should have just got the straight game. As usual the Steam folks don't stand behind any thing they sell.
. Patrician will have you crushing your rivals and fighting the pirates on the high seas. They dont make many of these "city builders" much these days but after playing this one you will want to be able to write code so you can make more (well maybe not)
Score out of 10 = pineapple. Recommended, this add-on version, not the base Steam Edition game, BUT… For new players, well the game is technically a bit obsolete in some ways, but works fine, only there are some confusing text mistakes and I think that the naval battles are tricky to play well manually, but you can let computer compute it (I did it in the end always).
For players of Patrician III, the game is much simpler, but offers some new things too (land routes and cities later in game after fulfilling some tasks from kingdoms). I like the easier way to sell and buy, but that is only the UI. On the other hand you don't take care about ammo for your ships, don't equip the ships with weapons, only upgrade them, hire sailors and that is it. You still can lend money or take a loan, but you cannot easily manage it, you can do it only, if it is offered to you by someone in tavern like the other tasks.
If you want to build a house/factory or order a ship, you pay always the same price and then the producer buys the material from city, so it creates the demand and you can sell your material, if you own it.You don't set a rent for your houses and you don't decide if you build patrician house or cheap house. They are automatically upgraded according to the population.
You have lack of information, what do some events have effect on the city. And there are funny small bugs (well don't know about Patrician III, but Port Royale had a lot of them too), like that the port is frozen, you have there a patrol ship, still getting income, and it can be attacked by pirate:-), but cannot leave the city. So in fact it is nice cheating if ice catches you in port, just provide the convoy as a patrol until the port is free, to not lose much money.
My biggest complaints are to the graphics, because yes, it can be nice to look in 3D on the city and that you don't have there a grid for buildings, but it still is very simplified and you use it only sometimes to enjoy the view. And even though the cities don't share same layouts like in Patrician III, there are still few similar layouts with a little difference. And the world map is ugly.
Second complaint is to the naval battles. They are tricky to play correctly. I gave up. In Patrician III I was good, I could win almost each battle, but here I could lose completely everything easily, because the UI is bad.. If you were ever beaten up for your lunch money as a kid, you know what if feels like to play this game. The pirates are annoying bullies and ruined this game for me. I spent more hours on Patrician 3 than any game I've ever played, and due to the mixed reviews, I waited for this game to be on sale before trying it. I made sure the "Pirate Activity" was set to "Low" before I started the campaign, I didn't like them in the previous game and never had any interest in manual battles. The pirates in this version are even more irritating than Patrician 3 and ruin the fun of the game. I was forced to abandon the campaign several hours in when the fifth pirate appeared. At that point there was a total of six ports blocked, and I spent a ton of money and time trying to build a convoy that would help get rid of them, only to have it fail completely. After giving up on the campaign, I thought maybe the setting was ignored unless you were in Free Play, so I started a new game. Three hours in, I have a pirate ship that is blockading my home port and pillaging every ship that goes in or out. That is considered a "Low" amount of activity. I spent over an hour searching for a mod to get rid of the pirates, to no avail. It seems to be a common complaint, but all I can find is instruction for editing game files to make them weaker in manual battles. I've never edited game files before, but I guess I'll give it a shot, and maybe I can still play. I'll be honest, if som
