The Civ4ArtDefines_Civilization file defines the icon and flag for each Civilization.
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.
These tags typically bracket other tags, sometimes the entire file, and are generally used to specify more than one piece of data.
|CivilizationArtInfo||Main bracket which encases each entry.|
|Type||Tells which Civilization goes with the files|
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".
|bWhiteFlag||Defines whether or not a flag will have a white background; if set to 0 it will use the civ's primary and secondary colors.|
These tags are directly related to the rendering of art for the entry.
|Button|| World Builder Icon. |
,path to icon,path to corresponding Atlas,#,#
|Path||Path to the art file for the flag that the civilization uses.|
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.
<CivilizationArtInfo> <Type>ART_DEF_CIVILIZATION_AMERICA</Type> <Button>,Art/Interface/Buttons/Civilizations/America.dds,Art/Interface/Button/Civics_Civilizations_Religions_Atlas.dds,1,5</Button> <Path>Art/Interface/TeamColor/FlagDECAL_Star.dds</Path> <bWhiteFlag>0</bWhiteFlag> </CivilizationArtInfo>
