What is pompeii? I guess if I play the game I'll find out. Also, don't release these games until after the set contest date to ensure higher scoring. You don't have to, but the time you take to make the game will affect the rating as well. (This is to try to prevent rushed games.)

Good luck on it.
Idea:
Have you played Assassin's Creed? Something like an ancestor of a person involved in the incident is called upon by a research team to re-enact the historical scene, since memories of ancestors are locked away in their DNA (although they can't remember it), and they have the technology to simulate such conditions.
Just an idea, if it's too sci-fi to you, you can choose to do something else.

Copy the .map and .BAK files from your game folder, rename the originals, then paste the two you copied.

You can do that, but it requires pasting to another folder so your computer does not try to overwrite the current ones.

I like 'em too, actually.
Although they don't look Roman enough.
Consider adding columns and fancy stuff?

Try and make the actual game look like the loading screen. Do you know how to edit walls? (Edit TH0 file in 001 folder.) If so, make a wall that looks like the ones on the buildings in the pic. You could make a column as an enviroment. Like this one. Use it if you want to, it took me a minute to make.

The way it looks in the screenshot it really is. A basic rule visually in resource making is coloring the interactive things with brighter lighter colors and making everything else dull and darker. Walls and ground tiles for the time period you are going for should contain alot of earthy colors because the romans and greeks used alot of stone and clay to build everything.

If the tiles are too bright, I might have a seizure. Just kidding. :D
It's pretty much okay, just make it a few shades darker.

What do you mean, it wouldn't let you passed?

Okay, so you have your map, called "Village" or something. If you want an identical map, find you game's folder in My 001 Games (for Windows), scroll down until you find two files, called "Village.1mp" and "Village.1mp.BAK". Copy those files and rename the originals to, say, Village Destroyed. Leave the extension on the end of the file(.1mp and .1mp.BAK), just rename the Map name. Then paste the copied files.

It works fine for me, so it should for you.

Are you sure you're in the "My 001 Games" folder? Also, check to make sure you are in an administrator account on your computer.

hmmm ... I remember it used to block me from doing it, but I don't know what I did to get around it. Try copying the files and pasting them on your desktop, then renaming them there and dragging them back into the 001 folder location. If that doesn't work, try using Ctrl +C and Ctrl + V instead of clicking copy and paste.

Oh! What is the exact name of the folder that the "My 001 games" folder is in?

The Tardis is some kind of spaceship. With which he can travel through time. It looks like a policebox. Or if you want like a blue phone box. There was a episode in which he actually was in Pompeii.

That means the file is non-existent. I think.
