C3MT - Civ3MultiTool (Second CFC Thread)


Sep 1, 2001
So, today is the day when I release version 1.00 of C3MT. It's about half a day delayed to come to this site due to some reallife issues for me.
I've been asked to start a new thread with this version, and I think it's about time too. the old thread is way too long, and many posts are outdated. I should probably done this already by the namechange.

I'll start by telling you all what's new:
- SGE: Default loading directory now is the latest played game Civ3/PTW save directory
- SGE: Great Wonders are now handled correctly when assiging them to cities
- SGE: Bug where the buildinglist would show more than one copy of each building corrected.
- SGE: Bug where all last buildings in the rules would get unbuilt when a save was loaded and resaved corrected.
- SGE: Building count is now updated correctly when editing saves
- SGE: Unit count is now updated correctly when editing saves
- SGE: Small Wonders are now handled correctly when assiging them to cities
- SGE: Changing the Unit coordinates from odd-odd to even-even and vice verse now works as for cities
- SGE: Bug where the tool crashed when changing tab with invalid coordinates entered corrected.

- Unit Organizer: Flag Unit, Captured pop Unit and units place in a scenario will now be updated correctly if the IDs change.
- Fixed saving of Conquests saves. (1.12.7 and 1.12.6 caused an DATA IO error WRLD during save)

Full Install

Small File
The latest version (1.12.8) is here

A Full version is needed if you are installing from scratch or if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 1.0.

You will also need a fixed for the copytool to work correctlybuildings-small.pcx (Also needed with the full install) (NOT FOR PTW+)
Note that there might be problems loading PTW scenarios from early PTW versions (BIX version < 11.18). A fix for this will get ready soon. I'll just wait and see if there are any other direct easy to correct errors found.

A possible workaround is to load and save the file with an editor producing 11.18 bix files.
Yeah First to reply.

- Bug with scenarios without spaceships corrected

I know I was the one that brought this up, but now that your tool supports it I have found a way to make "spaceships" work in the MTG Mod. Thanks for the update. Now I can add units and not worry about order since I can re-arrange em later.

I actually would have, but decided to "Receive Updates to the Thread" instead of posting in it.

Great tool Gramphos!

However, I'm having some problems.
I upgraded C3MT to v 1.00, and when I load up SGE, I get a message "File not found", but SGE still loads. Also saved games are loaded with no problems, but the histogram does not show up, and when I try to edit filter, I get the following error message and the program quits:

Run-time error '340':
Control array element '0' doesn't exist.

I didn't have any of these problems before. I'm running Civ3 PTW v1.14 on Windows 2000.

I hope you can fix these bugs soon, as I really look forward to using this tool. Thanks.

The diplomacy tab seems to work - I never knew AI sells resources to each other at 1gpt!
Can you check if you have both civilization3.ini and ptw.ini in respecive folder?

Also, what are the rules of the saved games? (Do you use VictoryPoints in any way?)
NM the rules. The problem is that either
or PTWPath\ptw.ini isn't found, and that the dialog initiation stops at the time resulting in the palletts not being loaded, and no colors being displayed for the histograph.
Correction: The palletes are initiated to all black. => fully balck histograph whatever option you select.

I'm not sure why this affects the filter, but I've confirmed that it does affect the tool the way you describe. A fix will be ready soon.
So, you don't have a civilization3.ini file? :)
Never run Civ3... You must have reinstalled ;)

Yes that's right! I've uninstalled everything in December, and only reinstalled in April!

If you have successfully used earlier versions with the Civilopedia Editor and Unit Creation Wizard in it of this tool this file should do it. Otherwise download the Full install

Does this Small file patch 0.99 to 1.00.0001 :confused:
