Examples

Here are different ways to query the database to retrieve the ID from the type. Those examples will return and assign the integer value 0. See also GameInfo.

local id = GameInfo.Civilizations.CIVILIZATION_AUSTRIA.ID
local id = GameInfo["Civilizations"].["CIVILIZATION_AUSTRIA"].ID
local id = GameInfo.Civilizations{Type="CIVILIZATION_AUSTRIA"}().ID

Alternatively you could use the ID or the type to retrieve the value of the Description column. Those examples will return and assign the value TXT_KEY_CIV_AUSTRIA_DESC.

local description = GameInfo.Civilizations[0].Description
local description = GameInfo["Civilizations"][0]["Description"]
local description = GameInfo.Civilizations{ID=0}().Description
