Civ4ArtDefines Unit

From Civilization Modding Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Civ4ArtDefines_Unit file declares various art settings for units.

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.

Tags

Text

Tag Name Description
Type Object Name (Unit).
Button Location of the unit's button file (.dds format).
NIF Location of the unit's NIF (model) file.
KFM Location of the unit's KFM (animation) file.
SHADERNIF Location of the unit's "shaded" NIF (model) file.
TrainSound The sound played when an unit is built in a city.


Boolean

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".

Tag Name Description
bActAsRanged If set to 1, the unit always engages enemies at ranged distance, rather than closing to melee distance.
bActAir If set to 0, the unit shows up in the Civlopedia interface as per its domain -- DOMAIN_LAND, DOMAIN_AIR, etc.

If set to 1, forces the unit to show up as an Air unit in the Civlopedia -- that is, flying with sky in the background.

bActAsLand If set to 0, the unit shows up in the Civlopedia interface as per its domain -- DOMAIN_LAND, DOMAIN_AIR, etc.

If set to 1, forces the unit to show up as an Land unit in the Civlopedia -- that is, on the ground (or hovering over it, like helicopters).


Floating-Point

Tag Name Description
fScale The unit's model is scaled (multiplied) by this number for its size on the map.
fInterfaceScale The unit's model is scaled first by fScale, then by this number for its size in the 'Pedia and the bottom-right window.
fBattleDistance Distance at which this unit will fight (melee-style) opposing units.
fRangedDeathTime unknown


Lists (Multi-line)

All List tags consist of an opening/closing tag, which is shown here, and then each entry within it is another tag with the same name as the parent tag, minus the "s" (i.e. singular, rather than plural).

Tag Name Description
ShadowDef unknown
AudioRunSounds unknown


Example

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.
