    This is a library of all the threads (well most of them any way) in this sub-forum for easy look up and easy reference. If there are any threads not posted here, then simply PM me with the URL of that thread and the category it should go under. Questions or comments concerning the files in this library as well as the categories are always accepted. Just comments or questions in general are also always accepted. I hope this helps in shortening your search. Good searching and good luck!!:crazyeye:

    Once you read this, you can delete it poly.

    The Inserting Units into C3C by Colonel Kraken doesn't work anymore, it links to transparency tutorial.

    If you want ot change the look of your cities then ask varwnos, he created a lot of wonderful city sets that you might use. To add races, look under the "Add Civs" section here.
