[Warlords] Specialist Stacker v0.8.1w 2016-10-05

This mod "stacks" the specialized citizens, super specialized citizens and angry
citizens instead of displaying them side-by-side. It also makes use of the space
to the left of the specialized citizens by allowing them to span into two columns
instead of just one. This will allow for more than the vanilla six specialized
citizens to exist in the game.

The same information displayed in the warlords version is now displayed in v1.61.


Installation Instructions:

1) Unzip this into the "civ4_install_folder\Mods\" folder.
2) Open the CivilizationIV.ini configuration file
3) Change the Mod line to read: Mod = Mods\Specialist Stacker
4) Load the game.
5) Then play as normal.


-----Notes to Modmakers-----

I have modified the CvMainInterface.py and Dr Elmer Jiggle's CvConfigParser.py
file. I have added #< STACKER START > and #< STACKER END > in all of the places
that I have made changes to the files.

As of version v0.6.1 the Specialist Stacker configuration options have been moved
to the "Specialist Stacker Config.ini" file. There are 11 variables that can be
used to configure the stacker settings and are well documented in the INI file.
Please note that you no longer need to copy the "Specialist Stacker Config.ini"
file to the "civ4_install_folder\Mods\" directory. Just make sure that you put
a copy of the "Specialist Stacker Config.ini" in your directory and you update
the modName variable in the CvModName.py file with your mod's name.

I highly recommend that you use Dr Elmer Jiggle's INI parser if you want to
allow players to configure your mod through INI files.

If you use this mod, all I ask is that you give me credit.
