    doWar is called every turn. IF doWar decision is made the game applies the attitude factors and asks whether it ignores it or not (10% means it ignores doWar 10% of the time, 100% means it ignores it 100% of the time).
    The doWar mechanism is a dice roll, but before it comes to this the game looks at some xml values for each leader to find out if the leader feels himself strong enough to declare war (those thresholds differ for each leader and for whether the opponent is nearby or on another continent). I can try to dig out the doWar code, but I will certainly not do it in this thread - I don't want to drag it away too far from this wonderful work posted here ;)

    My biggest suggestion is to put the unit upgrade chart in this document.

    I am constantly trying to remember what upgrades to what.

    If you can add that, I would be so thankful and can take it to Kinkos to get a nice booklet of it.

    Thx

    This is simply an awesome booklet.

    A few suggestions, most seconding what others have already stated:

    -Group units by type, rather than alphabetically
    -Document what a UU and UB replaces in the unit/building box (I know it is listed at the beginning, but it is useful in these places as well)
    -Include Promotion Ladder
    -Include Science Tech Tree
    -Include Unit Upgrade Tree
    -List Civics by group, rather than alphabetically

    Like I said- simply fabulous work here, and if nothing more got done, I would still use it as is and be happy.

    Thanks

    Heh, did anyone notice: On the Education icon, the chalkboard in the back says "CIV4=$".

    On topic: Excellent guide, both in information and visual appeal.

    Yes, that was a joke in the unpacked art I assume. It should be different in game.

    Thanks so much, dj_anion!

    I'd like to request an editable version (in whatever format you created the PDF from), for those of us who like to add our own changes or notes before printing.

    dj_anon,

    If you get a free moment, you may want to the modify the Apostolic Palace: + 2 hammers to religious buildings of the same religion as the Apostolic Palace's

    Great job and thanks!

    The Apostolic Palace doesn't grant +2 :hammers: to all state religion buildings. Maybe you are thinking of the University of Sankore? If you are, then the +2 :hammers: is a bug - it should be +2 :science:.

    I just tried to print the "printer friendly" version, and it didn't really work. By the time it was done flattening and spooling (which took almost 15 min) the file was 360mb in size! The printer just couldn't handle it and died on the third sheet.

    I've currently got all this information and more in my upcoming reference guide so stay tuned. (If you can wait another few weeks - I'm alone in creating this one but have been planning it since the game came out). Its A4 size pages so wont be the "handy A5-booklet style" like whats currently out. Just finished the "civilizations" pages which is 13 pages long.

    Thank you so much for consolidation the info, as I am considering to buy this expansion shortly this or next week.

    I have a technical problem on this PDF. This PDF is good for reading, but it is impossible to read it on print-out from monotone printer, because it is background is grey and the words are white.
