Civ4TraitInfos

From Civilization Modding Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Civ4TraitInfos file contains all the information related to each leader trait.

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
TraitInfo Main bracket for each entry
