I guess I could just give it a go. I may be able to figure it out. I want to make small changes. I think all Conquests should start with more workers, to help the AI, and I would like to try some with higher VP limits, particularly the Age of Discovery Conquest.
Samson, you make a lot of in my eyes very good posts in the CFC OT forums.
This said, I am delighted, that you also have some interest in Civ 3.
For modding biqs of the conquests in C3C, an additional hurdle in modding Civ 3 must be taken into account, as here the C3C default settings are disabled:
VP-limits and other settings of Conquests/scenarios coming with C3C cannot be changed when starting a game as it is in standard C3C games.
Here you can only see the settings of the conquest/scenario, but you must accept these settings in that screen (demonstrated by a screenshot of the AOD conquest with the missing buttons for changes):
The special settings of the conquests (and the scenarios) coming with C3C must be changed in the editor. Here the special settings in the Conquest biq for Conquests/scenarios in the scenario folder of the editor overwrite the normal settings in the C3C editor. Therefore, if you want to change something in the C3C Conquests biq "6 Age of Discovery" you have to go into that biq with the editor to the scenario registry => Scenario Properties => and here in the detail you want to change (in this case Victory Point Limit) - and don´t forget to trigger the accept button and than save the new biq:
For setting more workers, you can select this starting unit and can set the number of starting workers up to 25. This can and should be done for every single civ (player) in that conquest.
Samson, if you have problems here, I can create a biq of the AOD Conquest for you with the changes you want to have.
