Civ4EspionageMissionInfo

Jump to: navigation, search

The Civ4EspionageMissionInfo contains all of the information for espionage missions that spies can carry out.

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.

Integers

All of these tags have a numerical value. Though it sometimes can be negative, it usually is not.

iBuyTechCostFactor A percentage that adjusts the mission cost based on how much research went into the technology.
iBuyUnitCostFactor A percentage that makes the mission cost different amounts, depending on the production cost of the unit. If successful, the mission will convert the unit to the players team.

iPlayerAnarchyCounter The number of turns the target nation will be in anarchy (This tag is not used in BTS, but works).
iVisibility Used to turn on city visibility (Only 0 or 1 will have any effect. I don't know why Firaxis didn't make this Boolean.)


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
bIsPassive Whether the mission needs to be activated by the player, or occurs passively. (Ex: Seeing inside enemy cities with spies)
bIsTwoPhases Whether, after selecting the mission, a more in-depth secondary screen needs to appear. (Ex. Sabotaging a building consists of two phases)
bTargetsCity If the mission can only be carried out in a city.
bSelectPlot If the mission requires a unit to be on a game tile. (Examining foreign countries research is considered a espionage mission and does not require a tile)
bInvestigateCity If the mission allows the unit to investigate an enemy city.
bSeeDemographics If the mission allows you to see the statistics for the country.
bNoActiveMissions If the mission requires no other active missions to be taking place.
