Civ4GameOptionInfos

From Civilization Modding Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Civ4GameOptionInfos file defines what options are available in a particular game when starting from the custom game screen (such as Advanced Start, No Tech Trading, etc.). Changes to this file must be reflected in the SDK.

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

Headers

These tags typically bracket other tags, sometimes the entire file, and are generally used to specify more than one piece of data.

Tag Name Description
GameOptionInfos This tag surrounds the entries in the file
GameOptionInfo Main bracket for each entry


Text

Tag Name Description
Type How the option appears in other files
Description The text for the option in the game
Help Mouse-over text for the option in the game


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
bDefault Whether the option is on by default
bVisible Whether the option is visible in the custom game screen


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.

<GameOptionInfo>
 <Type>GAMEOPTION_ADVANCED_START</Type>
 <Description>TXT_KEY_GAME_OPTION_ADVANCED_START</Description>
 <Help>TXT_KEY_GAME_OPTION_ADVANCED_START_HELP</Help>
 <bDefault>0</bDefault>
 <bVisible>1</bVisible>
</GameOptionInfo>
