    So I'm pretty oblivious to the under the hood components of Civ IV and I would like to get rid of the clouds that go by in globe view so I can better draw lines. I have looked for an option to turn them off but I didn't find anything. Can someone point me to where I can get rid of them? I have BTS with latest official patch. Thanks.

    There should be a option in the graphical menu, i thought...if not, turn down your graphics settings, that also should disable them.

    If that doesn't work:
    Assets\XML\GlobalDefines.xml,
    PHP:
        <Define>
            <
    DefineName>RENDER_GLOBEVIEW_CLOUDS</DefineName>
            <
    iDefineIntVal>1</iDefineIntVal>
        </
    Define>
    I don't know, what happens, if you set the value to 0 or -1, but it's maybe a good point to start.

    It disabled the clouds, but not the cloud shadows (at least in my laptop).
    Tried also the the civ4detailmanager.xml and civ4artdefines_misc.xml but the shadow is still
    there. And I wanted to take screenshots of the map :(
