Probably should of posted this updated one awhile.

a lot of changes since the source code was released:



CHANGELOG:

2006-03-08
Added: GoodyHutExcluded flag for Units. Units with this flag shouldn't appear from a goody hut.

2006-03-02
Added: EnablesVeterans flag for buildings. Now if a city has a flag with this building your units start as veterans (like civ3)
Added: PopCostsToBuild flag. Add an integer here in unitstxt and units can cost 1 or more population points. I havent instituted a disband city warning yet though


2006-02-27
Added: GoldPerUnit - like my previous GoldPerCity flag but its just the flag value times the number of units (like Civ3). I stuck it to the palace to represent unit costs. Value seen in City Management (not national)
Added: GoldPerUnitReadiness - same as above but added the readiness impact. Value seen in City Management (not national)
Added: Need Number of buildings to Build - like the feat it can now be a flag for building a building (especially with OnePerCiv) or a wonder.
gs\gameobj\Player.cpp
Added: TotalBuildingUpkeep: building upkeep also has a negative impact by being affected by your readiness and is deducted from the city gold (I can remove this if too much hate for it but it makes gold and readiness more significant)
gs\gameobj\ArmyData.cpp
Added: multipleattack flag but not fully implemented (you can move after attacking or bombarding but not attack again)
Added: CommercePercent,sciencePercent,ProductionPercent, and FoodPercent to cities If its receiving a good or is part of a civilization, or if the the city's style grants it.
Added: BonusGold,BonusProduction, and BonusFood (integer value) to cities If its receiving or has a good
Added: BonusGold,BonusProduction, and BonusFood (integer value) to cities if the the city's style grants it.
Fixed: Sneak bombard that was causing possible "fugi" crash (I hope)

2006-02-15
Added: NeedsCityGood, NeedsCityGoodAll, and NeedsCityGoodAny flags
Added:Redesigned ColorSet to prevent a crash during start-up.
Added: to Civilisation and CityStyle databases happiness increasement flags
Added: Message boxes are now non-modal, left click on a message in the message list, the message is opened if it is not open, otherwise it is closed, right click removes the message from list, if it is open it is closed in addition. Left clicking on another message opens that and closes the first message. Alert boxes are left as they are modal.
Added: option to select a city first instead of an active army.
Added: DebugSlic and GoodAnim to the advanced options.
Added:Used option to select a city first instead of an active army. Unfortunately this doesn't quite work. But for now this should be enough.

So much I had to break up the post

the earlier stuff

2004-01-31
Added: MAX_MATCH_LIST_CYCLES flag to sonst.txt of the Magnificant Samurai Scenario, so that
it work with this version of CTP2.
Possible crash fix: cpuinf32.dll is no longer used to examine the CPU, didn't work on non
intel CPUs anyway.
Improvement: Have the great library start with something more useful than Advanced Infantry
Tactics.
Fixed: A number of SLIC functions that used calls with inappropriate arguments.
Fixed: Great library data between players in hotseat games is now cleared.
Added: In Advanced Options Menu some more useful descriptions for CloseOnEyepoint and
ShowExpensive functions, a native speaker may have a look on the English version for
language corrections.
Added: All the changed textfiles from patch 1.1/1.11.
Added: Missing diplomacy photos in the diplomanager.
Replaced: Buttons for the number of Civs in the single player new game screen by a spinner.
This allows you to start a SP game with more then 7 opponents. The maximum is 31
civilizations in one game. Unfortunatly only games up to 28 or 29 players can be reloaded.
Added: A maximum civs spinner on the same screen that allows you to set to how many civs can
be at the same time in one game, while the limit is not reached revolting cities are
converted into new civs, otherwise in Barbarian cities.
Added: On the same screen another spinner that will allow you to select your civ color,
unfortunatly does not work, yet.
Replaced: Disclaimer strings are added for the old disclaimer image from the last versions,
to allow easy localizability.
Fixed: A bug in the scenario.slc from the Magnificant Samurai Scenario, so that now a fort
in Shichinen is built a site when it should be build.
Added: Up to 33 players are now supported with their own color. I hope you enjoy the new
collor set. :D;)
Fixed: Some cut & paste errors repaired in Exclusions.cpp, no idea what it does now you
have to ask Fromafar.
Fixed: Alexander scenario.slc, replaced the code in the "doesn't work, grrrr..." function
with something that seems to do the job.
Added: Slic Database access, and a way to figure out via slic how big a database is.
Fixed: Crash to desktop prevented in the HasAgreement function
Fixed: Crash to desktop prevented when no sound has been defined for a tile improvement.
Fixed: Unloaded buttons which caused an exit pop-up in the city window, don't ask me what
Fromafar here means. ;)
Added: If during slic code execution a devision through 0 appears in DebugSlic=Yes mode a
meaasge is give.
Fixed: Map wrap handling of the trade route computation is now consistent with the actual
map type selection.
Fixed: Trade routes now follow rivers, roads, railroads and maglavs according the Freight
flag in terrain.txt and tileimp.txt. So if you have a route between two cities and there
is no road etc. you need much more caravans than if there is a road etc.
Fixed: Handled a CtD (stack overflow by infinite recursion) when the advances contain a
loop in the prerequisite chain. Occurred (only) with the debug version in combination
with the LoTR scenario. Well maybe this is also useful somewhere else.
Fixed: Memory leaks

2003-12-14
Fixed: Prevents triggering - and forcing you to click away - the intimidating message
about having to sell city improvements when you rushbuy to a low gold level in an
otherwise sound economy.
Fixed: Some small updates for the Alexander scenario: text files only - no code.
Fixed: \ctp2_data\default\gamedata\tileimp.txt updated to align with 1.11
Fixed: \ctp2_data\default\uidata\keymap.txt updated to align with 1.11
Fixed: \ctp2_data\english\gamedata\add_str.txt updated to align with 1.11

2003-11-12
Fixed: English ldl_str.txt corrected to the correct description for Neptune world.
Fixed: Do not cause an Assert failure - in the debug version - when slaves revolt and
capture a city.
Fixed: Replaced Shield references with Food ones in the food functions.
Fixed: Removed an AI mental block which prevented it from placing gold improvements on
forest tiles. Unfortunately, this is not a very general solution: it will not work for
water tiles.

2003-09-12
The sound system should be in working order.
Added: Start screen shows legal mumbo jumbo.
Fixed: Hidden goods no longer show up in the Great Library.
Added: Pollution powergraph.
First fix for the PBEM (PBEM is still incomplete though).
Fixed: Coastal fortress and flak guns now work.
Fixed: Sea city sprite bug.
Added: function so that the population is displayed in the CityPopSoinner can be
used elsewhere in the program.
Fixed: Bug in Scenario Editor that prevents displaying of more then three city
style buttons in the city tab. Well these so far these buttons don't have icons
but at least they work now as expected.
Fixed: Bug in the Scenario Editor so that cities created by the Scenario Editor
have the right size as displayed in the CityPopSpinner and keep their style given
by the Scenario Editor.
Fixed: Cities created by the scenario are now selected per default.
Attempt to fix bug concerning displaying of unfinished tile improvements.
Unfortunatly this doesn't work as expected as the graphics of the unfinished
improvements aren't updated as exspected.
Fixed: PercentComplete function.
Fixed: infinite rush build bug.
Fixed: view the movies without a sound card.
Fixed: GetNearestWater Slic function.
Fixed: automatic selection when clicking the eyepoint of a message window.
Implemented: FreeAllSlaves, DestroyBuilding, OpenBuildQueue, TileHasImprovement
and ArmyIsValid functions.
Fixed: Center on Pirating Bug.
Fixed: Display the underlying terrain information when clicking on an enemy object.
This prevents easy detection of invisible enemy units.
Fixed: The science manager now display the real costs for the player.
Added: A flag to the ConstDB to expose the number of process matches for each army
so that this number is not hardencoded anymore to make the AI behaviour more
modder friendly.
Fixed: Recover production shields when disbanding a unit from the unit tab of the
city screen.
Fixed: Reduced the visibility to the player of an AI cheat in the pathfinding
algorithm.
Fixed: Make forts heal as cities, instead of fully in one turn.
Fixed: Veteran status is now used in combat.
Added: The music option to the drop down menue in the menue bar.
Added: When a tile improvement is constructed a sound is played like in CTP1.
Added: Strings in English and German for the new music option and for the ranking tab.
Added: Short cut to the music screen to the keymaps.
Added: A Sound flag, a Freight flag and remove the limit of 3 for contruction tiles.
All in the TileImprovementDB.
Fixed: None of the rush buy buttons is disabled anymore when there is only one turn
left from completion.
Added: A user interface option: Enables you to view cost and effect of all known tile
improvements, even if you are short on PW. To activate this option, you have to edit
userprofile.txt and set ShowExpensive to Yes.
(Well has to be added, if the game doesn't do it automaticly.)
There is no in-game screen to modify this setting (not yet).
Fixed: AI-AI-Diplomacy actually happen now.
Added: Two new flags for the terrainDB to allow modders to customize the graphics for
goody huts, this modification allows the modder to define for each terrain a
different hut graphic, for example you could have glacier like style huts for icy
terrains or a dessert or oasis like ruin/hut for desserts and so on. The new flags
in the terrainDB are optional if both of these flags are missing or just one of them
a default image is used, like it is in the original CTP2. The terrain.txt here is a
modified version, I replaced some of the ruins graphics with another graphic that is
part of the tile file already. This terrain.txt is meant as a base for disscussion,
so far it just demonstraded that it does work.
Added: The maximum city size that you can create with the scenario editor is now 999.
Added: Flat Map and Neptun World option to the single player shape selection window.
This new features are only available in a single player game so far.
Fixed: Correct movement costs for ships above seatunnels.
Fixed: Do not overwrite the user's leader name with the default civilisation-dependent
name when there is no reason to.
Fixed: Do not trigger a disaster warning when there is no pollution at all.
Fixed: Some Hotseat issues with hiding information between players.
Implemented: SLIC functions GetRoundsToNextDisaster and GetCurrentPollutionLevel.
Added: Close message boxes automatically when clicking the eyepoint.
A line CloseOnEyepoint=No will be added to userprofile.txt when you start a game with
the modified source. You have to change No to Yes to activate this option.
There is no in-game screen to change this setting.

instead of pillaging them

Added: If the terrain score equals 0 than the AI won't try to settle there (hopefully)
Fixed: Bug that disbanded all units when you tried to add settler to city
Fixed: Goodyhut crash caused by having more units than advances

2006-04-01
Added: ShowOnMap now you can specify a certain tileimp to be built is a wonder
or building is built
Added: ObsoleteUnit flag; units can be obsolete by other units availability not
just techs
Added: MoveBonus flag for units; now you can specify how much points a unit
will lose when it moves. MoveBonus 33 is like Civ2's AllTerrainAsRoads. Note
going to different cost imps might not be possible if you lack move points.
Added: GoldPerUnitSupport Units have a GoldHunger impact on cost
Added: GoldHunger units can now have a variable gold cost
Added: BorderRadius for wonders so wonders can increase border radius

2006-03-22
Added: production bonus to AI, they dont run production deficits
Added: GoodyHutExcluded flag (just in case) for advances
Added: messages for verifyattack and move into enemy. If you move into an enemy
or attack WIHOUT declaring war you will get a popup, but the popup doesnt let
you declare war (yet) you have to do that through the diplomacy screen.
Added: newupkeep flags,although not necessary (may remove)
Added: gold bonus to AI so they dont have to be hurt by negative values. If a
cities gold is less than zero for an AI it is automatically set to zero so
they dont get hurt by new gold modifiers

2006-03-11
Added: GoodyHutExcluded flag for Units. Units with this flag shouldn't appear
from a goody hut.
Added: Enablesgood in terraineffect - allows for different goods for same imp
on different terrains

2006-03-02
Added: EnablesVeterans flag for buildings. Now if a city has a flag with this
building your units start as veterans (like civ3)
Added: PopCostsToBuild flag. Add an integer here in unitstxt and units can cost
one or more population points. I havent instituted a disband city warning yet
though

2006-03-01
Added: GoldPerUnit - like my previous GoldPerCity flag but its just the flag
value times the number of units (like Civ3). I stuck it to the palace to
represent unit costs. Value seen in City Management (not national)
Added: GoldPerUnitReadiness - same as above but added the readiness impact.
Value seen in City Management (not national)
Added: Need Number of buildings to Build - like the feat it can now be a flag
for building a building (especially with OnePerCiv) or a wonder.
Added: Citystyle Bonuses to Gold, Food, and production by either a bonus
(just a solid integer) or by a percentage.
Added: Increase Borders to AddImprovement. Buildings can now do city radius!
Added: multipleattack flag but not fully implemented (you can move after
attacking or bombarding but not attack again)
Added: TotalBuildingUpkeep: building upkeep also has a negative impact by being
affected by your readiness and is deducted from the city gold (I can remove
this if too much hate for it but it makes gold and readiness more significant)
