What is meant to go here? I see a lot of red links; what do you want on the other end? 10:50, --Flying Pig 10:50, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm wondering the same thing...I'd love to help get those red links changed to normal, but I'm not sure what to put...-- CivRocks07 9 May 2009 (UTC)

I think the plan is to explain the tags used on each page. So, for the Civ4UnitInfos page, explain what tags like "<bAnimal>" mean and what values they take (0 or 1). There is an incomplete wiki at another site you can use as a reference: http://civ4.wikidot.com/xml-files. In short, try to go line-by-line through a file (or at least one "section" of the file; for the units page, this would be all of the tags used for one unit which are then repeated) and break it down.

Will do! --Flying Pig 13:52, 9 May 2009 (UTC)


Flying Pig, thanks for the effort. I have made some display changes to the UnitInfos page: http://modiki.civfanatics.com/index.php/Civ4UnitInfos.

Could you help try to keep this format (placing the tags and descriptions inside of their respective tables)? I think it makes it easier to read and more organized. :) Ginger Ale 14:49, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

About the schema files... I'm thinking that we should probably have them all in one file, as they all have the same purpose and the process for editing each is largely the same as the other schema files, with a table listing which schema files deal with which XML files. That way we won't have a ton of pages on them with varying amounts of info on how to work with them.--Deanej 16:34, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

everyone say thanks to the user Draco! he set up a bunch of the pages under "Assets/XML/Art"--CivRocks07 22:09, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Lots of work being done here since I last looked - well done, everyone Flying Pig 20:39, 12 May 2009 (UTC)


I made a note regarding my bolding of file names that are template-compliant. Please try to ensure that all files follow the consistent Format for new XML pages. This template should be the "master file" which sets the standards for all other pages. --Ginger Ale 00:56, 14 May 2009 (UTC)


As of this writing, all reference pages that have been created conform to the XML page template. Thanks! --Ginger Ale 18:46, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
