Tags are either text tags (no prefix; they should contain letters), boolean (prefixed by a b, can be 1 [on] or 0 [off]) or integer (prefixed by i, containing numbers)

Tag Usage Default values
CivilizationInfos This begins and ends the file. Everything must go in between these two, or it will not work.
CivilizationInfo Encloses the entry for each civilization
Type The name that can be used in other files and in the SDK to refer to a particular civilization.
Description References the Text which contains the civilization description (eg: "American empire", or "English empire"). The text is specified in any of the Assets\XML\Text files.

The possible values are defined in the Assets\XML\GlobalTypes.xml file, in the section "ArtStyleTypes".
UnitArtStyleType Sets the art style for that civilization. This is used when displaying units, and allows, for example, China and Japan to be displayed as asiatic, while Egypt and Mali will be displayed as african. The possible values are defined in the Assets\XML\Civilizations\CIV4UnitArtStyleTypeInfos.xml file.
bPlayable Specifies if a civilization can be played by a player (either human or AI). 0 for Minor and Barbarian, 1 for all the others.
bAIPlayable Specifies if a civilization can be played by an AI player. 0 for Minor and Barbarian, 1 for all the others.
Cities The list of city names to be used for that civilization. The names will be available in the specified order (for non barbarian civilizations) or in a random order (for barbarian cities).

Each node may specify the name of the city (with no language traduction allowed), or a reference to a text defined in any of the Assets\XML\Text files (with language traduction allowed).

Example for an entry which specifies the name of the city:

The possible values are defined: for Building Classes in the Assets\XML\Buildings\CIV4BuildingClassInfos.xml file, for Building Types in the Assets\XML\Buildings\CIV4BuildingInfos.xml file.

Example of unique building. Here, the American Mall is used instead of the standard Supermarket building class.

<Building>
