CD Player's Site
Hints, Tips, Strategy and FAQs for playing Populous III online


Home Page

Populous III - The Beginning is a *seriously* cool game! If you like playing on-line strategy games, then this is the one, and this is the site to help you sharpen up your game. With over 30 pages of hints, tips and FAQs there is something for everyone, covering everything from getting started to shaman-level strategy. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

New players start here.

  • Moved the site from its old address on Onetel to a brand new shiny webspace hosted by Populous Reincarnated. Thanks Inca!
  • Most of the links and some of the information here is out-of-date as I haven't done a serious update since 2004 (my how time flys). But some people may find it interesting as a historical snapshot of the way things were, and some things don't change (especially the game itself, more's the pity - we could do with an update) so I am keeping the site going on a care and maintenance basis.

Previous additions can be found in the Site History section.

I have set up a Yahoo mailing group and will send an email to group members detailing the changes each time I upload a significant amount of information. You can subscribe by sending a blank email to: and you can unsubscribe at any time by sending a blank email to: Your email address will not be visible to anyone else, and members cannot use the group to mail each other, so you won't be deluged in junk mail. Frequency of mailing is currently running at around one message every five years.
