Is it possible to turn research agreements off?

    If you look at the xml file you'll see in the table definitions at the top that "false" is the default value for the "ResearchAgreementTradingAllowed" column. Either deleting the line in the Philosophy entry or changing its value to "false" will accomplish the same thing and carries none of the risk you suggest. All the xml files are used for in this game is to load values into database tables. This is explained in the modding guide.

    If doing this before a new game doesn't disable research agreements it may be a caching issue.

    just want to add the Research_Agreement_Timer in globaldefines does nothing at all. Ive changed it many times & it doesn't change a thing. I can increase the cost of RA but not the duration, which i'd rather change both if i could, any ideas?

    I don't know if this had been posted, but I have changed the price for RA's in every Era of the game.

    For me, the folder is:

    C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\Common\Sid meier's civilization v\Assets\Gameplay\XML\GameInfo

    and the file to be moderated is:

    CIV5ERAS

    Search for research and raise the prices !!!

    Research agreements are ridiculous.

    Thanks for this bit of info, I found the file and removed RA altogether and then enjoyed a game free from mindless and endless attacks.

    I made this into a mod for those who don't want to mess with their xml.

    Available on the ModHub browser or down below.

    Actually toggling this doesn't remove research agreements. What it does remove is the ability to learn how to use them. Same effect though.
