    I did a reverse engineer of the DB of a BERT game and WOW, a lot of tables, just in the CORE game there are 470.

    Though a lot of seem like sub tables to some main tables, trying to pull those apart.

    In looking through the tables, I can't see where it stores current game information?

    I checked several .db but can't seem to find this information.

    Also A city is not a building, where does it track a city info? It doesn't seem to be unit, so just wondering if anyone knows.

    Thanks

    Those dbs don't store data during the game, they merely store data when a new game is started. I've very limited knowledge about that, but I think you can see these databases as the "book of rules" for the game, the actual processing and keeping track of what happens is handled internally and can (as far as I know) not be accessed.

    Would people be interested in diagrams of sub-sets of the tables? or do most people have tools to view this already.

    Personally, I like using SQLiteSpy for viewing the database snapshots; it's simple, lightweight, and nice to look at.
