The Civ4ArtDefines_Improvement file declares art files and properties for all of the terrain improvements.
All tags must be opened and closed; the first is the "open", the second the "close" tag. If nothing goes inside a "list tag", then it should just be the opening tag with a "/" before the closing bracket. The following tables contain all available tags, as well as their purpose and accepted values.
This page is missing information. Do not remove this notice until it is complete.
These tags typically bracket other tags, sometimes the entire file, and are generally used to specify more than one piece of data.
|ImprovementArtInfo||This is the main bracket that encases each entry.|
|Type||Label that is used throughout all other XML files|
All of these can either be 1 (on, or true) or 0 (off, or false). Be careful, as you can wind up with a double-negative, which the game will interpret as "True".
These tags are directly related to the rendering of art for the entry.
|fScale||Scale on Map|
|fInterfaceScale||multiply by fScale to get scale in Civilopedia|
|NIF||Location of .nif file|
|KFM||Location of .kfm file|
|Button|| World Builder Icon.|

In the following example of code, please note that there is a specific order of all of the tags. You must list the tags in this order for the game to properly interpret your file.
<ImprovementArtInfo> <Type>ART_DEF_IMPROVEMENT_FARM</Type> <bExtraAnimations>1</bExtraAnimations> <fScale>1.0</fScale> <fInterfaceScale>1.0</fInterfaceScale> <NIF>Art/Structures/Improvements/Farm/an_eu_farm01.nif</NIF> <KFM>Art/Structures/Improvements/Farm/an_eu_farm01.kfm</KFM> <Button>,Art/Interface/Buttons/Builds/BuildFarm.dds,Art/Interface/Buttons/Actions_Builds_LeaderHeads_Specialists_Atlas.dds,3,7</Button> </ImprovementArtInfo>
