The Civ4VoteSourceInfos file defines the different sources diplomatic votes can come from. The functionality exists only in BtS; for Vanilla and Warlords, votes can only come from the UN.
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.
This page is missing information. Do not remove this notice until it is complete.
These tags typically bracket other tags, sometimes the entire file, and are generally used to specify more than one piece of data.
|VoteSourceInfos||This tag surrounds all the entries in the file|
|VoteSourceInfo||Main bracket for each entry|
|Type||How the entry is referred to in other files|
|Description||The text for the entry in the game|
|PopupText||Text displayed when choosing a vote|
|SecretaryGeneralText||Text displayed for the leader (secretary general) of the vote source|
|FreeSpecialist||Free specialist given to members of the vote source|
|Civic||Civic requirement to be a member of the vote source|
All of these tags have a numerical value. Though it sometimes can be negative, it usually is not.
|iVoteInterval||unknown; either interval between votes for the secretary general or the number of turns between each vote|
All List tags consist of an opening/closing tag, which is shown here, and then each entry within it is another tag with the same name as the parent tag, minus the "s" (i.e. singular, rather than plural).
|ReligionYields||Yield given to each city with the religion associated with the vote source; top is food, then production, then commerce
|ReligionCommerces||Commerce given to each city with the religion associated with the vote source; top is gold, then research, then culture, then espionage
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.
