Ok, now, completly unrelated to what I was just doing, I now edited the civic values (what each civic does). It worked, but I had one issue. I accidentally typed 100% instead of 10% for one of the values. however, the next time I tried to edit the files, windows security blocked me (this didn't happen the first time, so I don't know why it changed my access). I just went into the properties and changed the security type to allow me to make edits. When attempting to edit the xml document I came across 2 problems: 1. The statistics had reset (rather then State_property being High Upkeep it was back to low upkeep, etc) 2. It couldn't access the save. What I did, was saved the xml document as what the original name was (copy + paste). And decided to see, none of the changes went into affect this time. Now whenever I edit the xml document, it doesn't do anything. Emancipation is stuck being over rigged. How do I fix this?
