Unit Model according to Era

    Recently I found the way to change the point in time where the model of some units (Worker, Great General, Great Admiral, etc) changes from archaic to modern. I made these units change model when I enter Modern Era, instead of Industrial Era. Having a general in a car alongside Musketmen and sometimes Knights didn't make sense to me.

    I can do this by modifying the Civ5ArtDefines_Units.xml files.

    My question is, how do I do this for the models of Embarked Units and Improvements? I can't seem to find the art define .xml files for those.

    Thanks in advance.

    FYI, you can do this with a mod; you don't need to edit base game files. Note that you can't have both Era variation and Cultural variation (like Settlers in the base game) at the same time without making your own system to do so in Lua.

    Embarked units don't work in the same way, but instead require a couple of simple Lua calls:
    Code:
    player:SetEmbarkedGraphicOverride(artDefineString)
    team:UpdateEmbarkGraphics()
    which you could use with something like this:
    Code:
    OnEraChanged(eraID, playerID)
        local player = Players[playerID]
        local teamID = player:GetTeam()
        local midEraID = 2   --Medieval
        local lateEraID = 6   --Modern in G+K/BNW
    
        if (eraID < midEraID) then
            player:SetEmbarkedGraphicOverride("ART_DEF_UNIT_GALLEY")
        elseif (eraID >= midEraID and eraID < lateEraID) then
            player:SetEmbarkedGraphicOverride("ART_DEF_UNIT_GALLEON")
        else
            player:SetEmbarkedGraphicOverride("ART_DEF_UNIT_TRANSPORT")
        end
        Teams[teamID]:UpdateEmbarkGraphics()
    end
    
    Improvements should be an easy XML update. They're in the Landmark art defines (there's an era column).
    Here's a simple SQL solution:
    Code:
    UPDATE ArtDefine_Landmarks SET Era = "Modern" WHERE Era = "Industrial";

    Thank you very much for the help.

    As for the modding, for my personal overhaul mod, I haven't used ModBuddy or any other SDK tools. I did it the lazy way. I just backed up the original files and paste my edited files directly into the game folder. I know that's horrible, but I'd like to know the downsides of doing it this way. There's the upside of being simpler to do (no UPDATE, SET, WHERE codes etc), and having the civilopedia display the right values (good for checking if some values/text edits work) in the main menu without loading all the mods then loading into a game.

    Right now my "mod" (mostly a collection of modified vanilla files) is more than 80 files big, mostly XML. Is it easy to make that into a proper mod? Would it be preferable?

    I have decided to forgo the simple and intuitive way of directly editing game files, and instead I am actually porting my mod over to the proper system because I'm a masochist. I started by just transferring some simple civilopedia text edits, and the changes do not take place in-game.

    Here is log
    Highlighted part is what I think the problem is. Other parts look similar to the log file without my mod.

You can construct a Citadel anywhere within your territory, or directly adjacent to your territory. Upon constructing the Citadel, your Culture borders will also expand to surround the Citadel on all sides by one hex. If the new Culture border claims hexes already owned by another civilization, you will incur a diplomatic penalty as a result.

    Modbuddy gives me some errors, but they're all about the quotation marks that are contained inside the texts, which it interprets as being part of the code. Maybe that's the problem?

    I used to be able to add quotation marks using the old method of pasting in edited vanilla fiiles, and the vanilla entries have quotation marks in them.

    So surely, I mean surely, this couldn't be it, right?

    And surely, the apostrophes won't turn into quotation marks, RIGHT?

    Turns out this is every bit as convoluted as I hoped it to be. Why people don't just paste over vanilla files for their undistributed edits is beyond me. :p

    Hello Seamus,

    if you just edit the vanilla files you may run into some issues :

    - If there is an update for Civ5 (unprobable but who knows?) or if you need to validate your Civ5 files with steam you will loose your changes.

    - Your changes may have compatibility issues with other mods. If you don't remember exactly which files you changed it may be hard to find where the problem is.

    Modbuddy is really easy to use and is a safe way to mod the game :)

    Well I kept a mod folder that looks like this that allows me to revert back and forth, and keep track of all my changes.
    Spoiler :


    But yes, I feel like a complete scrub because everyone else is using the SDK, so I will switch over.

    Your mother probably told you that "everyone else is doing it" isn't a great excuse. If you really have no intention of sharing your mod, and you're comfortable using your method, then it's perfectly valid (plus it allows you to continue to earn achievements--even though you might be cheating).

    That being said, you'd be contributing to the experience of the community by sharing your changes. I have found it to be a rewarding (if, yes, sometimes frustrating) experience learning to mod this game.

    ...

    Though you expressed discomfort with using SQL, it can really make life easier even if there's a learning curve at first. Rather than combing through multiple files and updating a bunch of XML tags (and then have to go back and find where you made your typos), you can often get the job done in a few SQL commands.

    This XML/SQL Cheat Sheet is invaluable.

    Here's a quick SQL tutorial of some more advanced techniques:

    For instance, to move all _LATE (i.e., INDUSTRIAL) art defines to _MODERN:
    Code:
    UPDATE ArtDefine_UnitInfos
        SET Type = REPLACE(Type, 'LATE', 'MODERN')
        WHERE Type LIKE '%_LATE';
    UPDATE ArtDefine_UnitInfoMemberInfos
        SET UnitInfoType = REPLACE(UnitInfoType, 'LATE', 'MODERN')
        WHERE UnitInfoType LIKE '%_LATE';
    If you wanted to leave out a specific unit or if you were worried that you'd affect another mod (though that would only be if the mod happened to load before yours), you could instead do something like:
    Code:
    UPDATE ArtDefine_UnitInfos
        SET Type = REPLACE(Type, 'LATE', 'MODERN')
        WHERE Type IN (
        'ART_DEF_UNIT_ARTIST_LATE',
        'ART_DEF_UNIT_ENGINEER_LATE',
        'ART_DEF_UNIT_GENERAL_LATE',
        'ART_DEF_UNIT_GREAT_ADMIRAL_LATE',
        'ART_DEF_UNIT_MERCHANT_LATE',
        'ART_DEF_UNIT_SCIENTIST_LATE',
        'ART_DEF_UNIT_WORKBOAT_LATE',
        'ART_DEF_UNIT__WORKER_LATE'
    );
    
    --(then similar for ArtDefine_UnitInfoMemberInfos)
    If you wanted to go the other way, and make sure you affected all other mods, regardless of whether that mod was loaded before or after yours, you could add a TRIGGER statement.

    If you wanted to mix and match changes to various eras, you could instead do something like:
    Code:
    UPDATE ArtDefine_UnitInfos SET Type = CASE Type
        WHEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_ARTIST_LATE' THEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_ARTIST_MODERN'
        WHEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_ENGINEER_LATE' THEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_ENGINEER_MODERN'
        WHEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_GREAT_ADMIRAL_LATE' THEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_GREAT_ADMIRAL_MODERN'
        WHEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_MERCHANT_LATE' THEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_MERCHANT_MODERN'
        WHEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_SCIENTIST_LATE' THEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_SCIENTIST_MODERN'
        WHEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_WORKBOAT_LATE' THEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT_WORKBOAT_MODERN'
        WHEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT__WORKER_LATE' THEN 'ART_DEF_UNIT__WORKER_MODERN'
        END;
    
    --(then similar for ArtDefine_UnitInfoMemberInfos)
