    I just got the XML files all added to the modiki a couple of days ago. The python and SDK reference sections are still pretty sparse though - are there any people here who would be willing to work on those pages and get them online?

    For the Python reference, I'd rather just link to the one provided on the BUG website.
    No need for a redundancy (and I also don't have time to work, not at all).

    It's there... there is also a start of a list of all files with each having a list of all function calls, though. In retrospect, maybe this was a bit excessive...

    On the civ5 side the thought is to just do a list of files and what they do... maybe I should convert the civ4 Python/SDK stuff over to that, since lists of functions probably don't add anything that can't be figured out from the code itself. I can probably delete the "Format for new XML pages" page (since they're all done), and also the Python/SDK ones if we switched to something less detailed (but more likely to ever be done).

    I'd not delete the format pages, they might be necessary if changes in the file structure appear, or even for future civ parts.
    In regards to Civ5, at least the Lua stuff is already done and nothing to worry about. Agree for the SDK though.

    Maybe we can leave them as-is and people can add more pages as needed? I think the current templates arouse out of over-ambiton when starting the modiki (and me treating the python/sdk parts like the XML part). I'm hoping to get the modiki to a "reasonably complete" stage soon.

    That's also an option, I'd say.

    I'd say create a reference for general DLL object models. A full method reference would be way too time consuming, but explaining how the Infos work and interact with the Global Context and how the AI relates to everything would be a good start.

    A reference for calls to the engine would also be nice potentially.
