The Pharaoh game’s mechanics are explained in this tutorial, which also makes an effort to address some of the most frequently asked queries.

Another important aspect of Pharaoh is housing. Your people will labor to build the monuments that will preserve Egypt’s heritage as well as supply the city with employees and consumers. They need a place to reside (Egypt is after all a civilized state), and they won’t be satisfied with filthy shacks, at least not if it means you can use them in some way. Your residents won’t just saunter in and begin a brand-new existence anywhere they wish. You must lay out building sites. Housing lots will draw immigrants if city sentiment in your city is strong enough. These immigrants will travel from the Kingdom Road to the closest undeveloped area and establish a home there.

Houses consume resources. A better home will use more resources. However, better housing offers more housing capacity. This immediately translates into a bigger labor market and more lucrative tax revenue. Your difficulty setting influences how many resources a house consumes as well as the resources/desirability needed to evolve it further. The in-game a*sistance can be extremely beneficial. Left-clicking a structure will reveal (almost!) everything you need to know about it.


There is no justification for residing near to a landfill. In a municipality, certain structures or facilities are deemed desirable or undesirable. Desirable homes boost the worth of the homes around them and attract wealthy residents. Unwanted ones have the reverse impact. Which areas are most and least desired by your people are indicated by your Desirability OverlayA. Green indicates desirable areas, and red indicates unattractive ones. Industrial, amus*ment, and military structures are typically undesirable. But religious buildings like temples, shrines, plazas, and the municipal palace make a place more desirable. Some living options are undesirable. Increased proximate detachability can be achieved through scribal dwelling and other housing choices.

As houses develop, they take up more space. The first ten levels in housing (from Crude HUT to Spacious Apartment), can be built on a single block. However, to continue to evolve, the house must have a space of 2×2, 3×3 and 4×4 spaces. The estate is the pinnacle of Egyptian home ownership. To be eligible for service walkers, houses must be within 2 tiles of a street. For a detailed breakdown on requirements for housing, please refer to the

If houses have the right goods and services in order to gentrify them or maintain their current standard, they will develop into better quality housing. In contrast, losing access to key goods or services will cause the house’s devolution. If it has more tenants that the house can accommodate, they will begin to evict them. If a house is devolved, it can shrink. Housing devolution, unlike the evolution, is not a quick effect. You have a considerable grace period after you lose goods, services or desire, before any housing redevelopment occurs.

Troubleshooting and Frequently Asked Queries: Housing

Q. My housing is at a certain level. How do I improve it further?

A. Left-click to open the house. It will tell you exactly what you need. Usually, you will need new services or goods. Sometimes, you might also need improve the overall appeal of the location.

Q. Q.

A. Regular housing provides workers in your city. Scribal housing denotes housing for your city’s upper cla*s. They are too educated and wealthy to be able to do manual labor. Once a house is elevated from Fancy Residence and worse to Common Manor it ceases being a regular house, and becomes a Scribal House. Scribal houses are homes that are withdrawn by the labor pool. In return, they pay much higher taxes. (Note that this only occurs if the Workers Population setting for “Age Simulation”. If it is set for Fixed Worker Ratio then scribal people will remain in the labor pools.

Quick visual shorthand: A house that is 2×2 inches in area or lower is considered a regular residence. Any house that is 3×3 to 4v4 in size is a scribal.

Q. Q. What’s happening and what can I do to stop it?

A. This error is caused by a bug. City sentiment is negatively affected when a section of your city has a life that is luxurious and others are struggling to make ends work. This means that even if a portion of your housing is aristocratic (manors) or better, city sentiment may suffer if there are too many slums (Crude and Sturdy HUT). City sentiment is not meant to be negatively affected if there are no huts in your city or very few. However, the lookup for maluses in city sentiment from housing equality is incorrect. Therefore, having any type of scribal accommodation in your city can lead to negative city sentiment. See

for details.

To counteract this, you’ll need to raise your city sentiment through other means, such as lowering taxes and raising wages or cozying up in Bast.

Q. I have placed housing plots, but nobody is immigrating to the city.

A. A. If the city sentiment is too negative people will not want to visit your city. The Overseer and Granaries also show how much housing space you have.

Q. Q. What is happening? How can I fix it.

A. This error is caused by a bug. The bug is caused by the fact that as housing expands, someone on the way to the home can cause the house’s behavior and lock into waiting state. (The new citizen is moving into their house, but due to the change in size of the housing plot, the game doesn’t recognize that they have finished moving in, and therefore fails to send additional citizens in once the existing citizen has arrived).

There are some solutions. The game can be saved, then loaded again. In some cases, this fixes the problem. The manor’s behavior can also be reset if you compel the devolution. Alternatively, you can wait until your Fancy Residence becomes a Common Manor before allowing it to develop into a Modest Estate. Then, it will be able to accommodate more residents. Even though the problem might get better on its own with time, it is occasionally fixable. Additionally, some players claimed that immigrants living in scribal housing are pickier than the typical immigrant from the middle cla*s. As a result, you’ll need to make it more alluring to draw them in by cutting taxes and increasing salaries.
