    Civilopedia Index Version 0.55 (2/20/05)

    The primary purpose of this mod component is to add an index page to the Civilopedia, which contains all entries from each category (cross-linked, of course). The index page is also smart enough to appropriatly sort any items beginning with 'The' (eg, 'The Wheel' appears among the 'W's rather than among the 'T's), and any entries that do not have their text key defined (ie, if a building TXT_KEY_BUILDING_ABC is defined, it will be sorted under 'ABC').

    The mod also increases Civilopedia icon sizes have been increased from 16x16 to 24x24, making them much easier to see and distinguish.

    Finally, the mod adds a 'Release Notes' page to the Civilopedia. This page is intended for modders to add a change log, credits, synopsis, etc. as a page in the civilopedia, rather than in separate files. It has the added advantage of being able to use the [LINK] tag to cross reference the civilopedia entries to the items in question (if applicable). To add an item to the 'Release Notes' section, simply create a new Game Concept and put an asterisk (*) at the end of the name.

    I still have some more optimizations and enhancements that I would like to add, but here it is in it's current working condition. All changes have been documented in the files. Feel free to use this in your mods (being sure to give me credit, of course ;)). Enjoy!

    Edit (2/20/05):
    Updated to Version 0.55 (New Screenshot Added)

    Version 0.55 Changes:
    • Added Labels to beginning of each Letter group (ie, A, B, C...)
    • Fixed Spelling Error in Root Mod Folder (Typed the Mod's name wrong :lol:)

    This is a good idea, but a suggestion:
    Add a line separator between each section of entries that begin with the same letter. In that line separator add the beginning letter in a bigger font, maybe x2 as big as the rest of the text.

    Just an idea.

    It's on the first post... (I just updated the download a few minutes ago, so perhaps you were trying to access it during the brief minute after I took down the first one, but before I put up the second.)

    Is this mod compatible with Warlords?
