I'm thinking of getting a picture gallery to store the populous pictures I have since it takes too long to do it manually. And I have 3 very good downloads which will be available soon. And I want to wish you a happy new year!


I have 3 very good downloads that I will probably add soon. It has alot of information of the history of populous.


We now have a domain which we may use in the future, its please don't use this link as it may not be avaliable in a few days depending on what I choose. Remember always use to get to this site otherwise you may have problems.


Do you own a populous clan or website? If you do email me at gmail and tell me! As usual the mappacks have been updated.


Merry Christmas to you all! I've added my IE toolbar today, and a firefox version will come very soon! I have someone fixing a error in the .xpi file right now :-) So download the IE toolbar here


I've added a cache of crazy aces site! visit it at the non active links section! I've made other random improvements too. I hope you have something nice planned for christmas!


I've change the zonealarm tutorial into a flash one! Visit the tutorial here, And The Shamans Home Website and forum have been not running for the past 2 days. And we are aiming for 5000 unique visitors by the 28 of december as this will be 5000 unique visitors in a month! It looks like we will surpass 5000 before the 28th anyway :-)


I've categorized the links because I was getting too many, I'll add a ton more links later.


School has ended for me, so there will be more updates here, the shamans home has a new forum and many new things at Populous Chat: Your Ultimate Populous Forum


I've added the original EA message that says you can't distribute populous 3 over the internet which you can view here I'd also like to note that blue warrior hut and the populous web ring aren't working right now.


I've added a cache of stuart whyte's website! To get to it click on links and then cached version next to his website. Any future websites that are not running 24\7 or get shutdown will also be cached by populous revolution.


We now have an arcade at our forum! With all the best 3d games, visit it at Populous Chat: Your Ultimate Populous Forum




I've got some new pictures which are really good. And the Revolution Awards December-February have started, so check your emails and fix your websites!
The new awards are here and once again populous dawn of a devils age php wins the most updated award so congratulations to them! :-)

Also incase you haven't noticed I have a server status above this which tells you if the populous reincarnated matchmaker server (login) and forums server is online for offline so you'll know if you can login!

Note: Fundo has decided he wants to screw around in the ftp, so if anything weird happens (besides the stuff he's already done) it will be fixed tomorrow. :-)


Quite alot of updates around the site including a new populous toolbar. I had made a firefox toolbar but I'm having problems with the javascript that installs the xpi file so i'm only releasing the internet explorer one for now. Note that Master JJ's toolbar is not the same and neither of us copied each other.


I've added some more downloads including the populous 3 drones music, and i've added the status of the populous reincarnated login and forums server which will tell you if its online or not (look up :P)


Updated some pages including the pop 3 getting started page, and also added a bookmarker on the front page.


Well lots of random updates throughout the site, and i've got cable internet now so I can upload lots of stuff for you to download, although the server is currently down so you'll have to wait :P.


I spell checked my whole website so you won't find any errors, and the best web browser is almost out of its beta stage and becoming version 1.0 so download it now by clicking Get Firefox! it should be version 1.0 by the time you see this it should be 1.0


the populous matchmaker is now version get it at the downloads section!


There's a new download at the downloads which is the new populous matchmaker in its beta stage. This version has been fixed so you can login so get it now! And the populous reincarnated servers are back online


I have 6 gmail accounts to give away for free, for information go to, register then click on general chat then gmail invite. Note that gmail is a 1gb mail service made by google.


I've added a populous 3 sound board, go try it by clicking here I'd also like to note that my email form is still down. There's also a new program called Populous Launcher made by khickman where you can easily play populous on a lan or online. I've also rearranged the links page and added some downloads



I've awards the sites which are based on real facts so make sure you visit them by clicking here i've also made lots of minor updates


The Shaman's Home's webmaster has won the best webmaster award. Note that its under construction still and may get its own website.


I have added an english interview with Stuart Whyte, make sure you read it! by clicking here


We now have the populous revolution awards! where we award website's on actual facts not voting systems where people cheat. We have some new downloads including save files for populous 3 and the upcoming Populous 4 Age of Chaos which beta testers (me) already have. The website of the month and picture of the month are gone so I suggest you go to the populous revolution awards for the best website's

I haven't been able to update the site as i've had problems with the new broadband i'm getting so I've been without internet for about 10 days. There are some good downloads coming when I get it so you will have to wait till then.

I'm also not happy with Master JJ removing my link to my site. I think its because I gave him a 1\10 important rating which I stand by. I gave him that rating since he seems to only have the "Master JJ's Guide to Building" Guide that's his. And he keeps take content of other sites and not giving credit to them.

I've made lots of random updates and you also won't be able to use the contact form until the gamespy servers are fixed. A long time ago we received our 10000th unique visitor!


Populous Awards emailed my old email address and I found it today and it said

Dear Webmaster,
Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the Awards Site had to close. There has been a lot of talk about the Awards and how they have been unfair with sites voting more than once for themselves and/or other sites. The team released the 'Operation Shaman' idea but this was rejected by many sites. Therefore, the Awards will probably take a break until some kind of agreement is reached. However, we can reveal the winners of Term 4:

Best Design: The Shaman's Home
Best Content: Populous Revolution
Best Features: The Shaman's Home
Best Newbie Site: Populous Uprising
Best Advanced Site: Populous Revolution
Best Name: Blue Warrior Hut
Best Downloads: Populous Revolution
Most Updated: Populous Revolution
Best Webmaster: Blue Warrior Hut

The Best Website award was not marked because of the deletion of the site. We must apologize sincerely for all the trouble caused.

Populous Awards Team

We won 4 awards!


Its hard to do updates since i've got lots of assignments to do. The populous awards is down and I suspect that their 90 free trial with their web host ended so we'll probably have to vote again.
