    After looking at the remaining XML hurdles there's no hurry.

    The biggies:

    PromotionsInfos
    UnitInfos
    Basic Infos - this got chopped up into a lot of little pieces. Not cool.

    The minor:

    Civ4Traits
    some tweaking now that techs are in

    Promotions are now done matt.

    I'm currently making a list of changes from Vanilla to BtS in Units, but will gladly let you do that one.

    But promotions XML is definitely done.

    I'll commit now.

    At revision 18 now.

    I'm not planning on doing any modifications until later on tonight.

    I'll plan on cleaning up leaders, civilizations, traits

    BtW The civilizations xml in the BtS editor is actually working if you want to use it (just hide the first 5 columns). I should also have promotions and units working fairly shortly as well (I know you already converted the promotions xml to BtS).

    By converting I added the correct unitcombat types to the BtS corresponding promo.

    We'll need to rename them and add new ones if we want.

    Do you have time to tackle BasicInfos?

    It looks like I made a big deal out of nothing with the chopping up of BasicInfos. Firaxis actually did us a big favor. The only one I see that needs modifying is the UnitCombat one. Geo can mess Calendar, Month, and Season when he wants to.

    edit - revision 20. Added the above file.

    units XML is added.

    A bunch xmls are currently not in sync with the BtS XML Schema files:
    Religion
    Trait
    Special building
    Improvement

    Game crashes after those xml errors so there could be moe

    Is it easy to check the XML errors while the game is loading?

    I didn't get the UnitInfos when I updated

    edit - nevermind. I had to rename the editor to get the new version. I can see that I need to import/export the CivUnitInfos. Nice

    The tech prereqs are from the original.(and thus need to be updated)

    You will all need to add the art defines for the units.

    I have 2 issues that I'm going to have to leave for now.

    There's a 100 and a 50 error in the BuildingInfos that I've never heard of.

    And there is an issue with the Improvements in the BuildInfo file.

    Feel free to take a crack anyone. :)

    edit - I'm done for the night at revision 25
