UPDATE ON 2006-01-22 : Version 0.5 ---------------------------------------------- SimCutie's Main Interface Screen Improvement. Date: 2006-01-22 Version 0.5. Based on Civ IV Update 1.52 Author : SimCutie < simcutie (at) hanmail (dot) com > This is upgraded version of old mod I have written some times ago, based on Civ 4 update 1.52 version. It is great leap from old version, not just small update. This version includes preliminary version of SimCuties Event Framework and other Modding library so it has a number of files to install. Complete documents about the my "Event Framework" will come later. Please wait some.. What is improved on main interface screen: 1) Display diplomatic attitude of AI player on score display by color Civilization name or color icon or text description. 2) Simple game clock with turn number and game progress percent. 3) Changeable minimap button layout / Some button states are saved. 4) 12Monkeys's Plot Button Enhancement 5) improved happy/unhappy/unhealthy face icons. 6) Action button facility (Not used currently but need for library) Most features are user selectable on CUSTOM tab of Option Screen Download and unzip the "MainScreen-SimCutie-05.zip" file and copy/move all content of "CustomAssets" folder to "~My Documents/My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization 4/CustomAssets/" folder See Documents/README-SIMCUTIE.TXT for more details NOTE!!!: Make sure to back up "Civilization IV.ini" file in "~My Documents/My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization 4" folder. The ini file will be stripped of comments and entry will be re-ordered. It does not harm or hinder game playing but minor nuisance. This is not bug, but current limitation. I will improve this in next version. This mod includes 12Monkeys's Plot Button Enhancement with little improvement. ------------------------ EDIT1 : Version 0.5 update announcement EDIT 2: Fixed some mistake and uploaded ZIP file again.
