    Its not different except that some of the XML references may be different.
    This guide will walk you through the steps needed.

    Most common problem that leads to the game crashing without an error message is a problem in the art defines file. Other mistakes tend to give you an error message.

    To have a unit added you need to correctly modify the following files
    CIV4UnitInfos.XML
    CIV4UnitArtStyleTypeInfos.XML
    CIV4ArtDefines_Unit.XML

    Other files changes are optional for things like text, but if you don't correctly modify the above three files your game will crash often without an error message.
