Post utility requests here.
I want a Vannila to BtS xml updater.
And a Warlords to BtS xml updater.
I'd like to see the Civ4 soundtrack editor getting updated to work with BTS.
I'd like a LINK to a bts dll that would allow me to have 34 civs in one game.
Also on a sidenote, a guide on how to mod the DLL would be nice to.
Here's a link to a 34 civ SDK. Go Here!
There was this editor I used to use for DDS files, it could open the file and it's alpha in Paint. Can't find it anymore.
You mean DXTBmp, right?
Is there a program that allows placement of civ starting positions in WBS files? That would be my request... That seems to be the number one request from people using WBS files with random starts, and when I made my own Europe map placing the civs was by far the most agonizing part.
Of course none of this would be relevant if Worldbuilder was actually a functional map editor...
I would *die* for some program that saves all high scores on a separate file, also uniting high scores for mods, etc.
I'm astonished nobody else but me is yearning for the soundtrack editor
being updated to BTS.
Does everyone else use Winamp to MANUALLY choose appropriate soundtracks
for each era??? How inconvenient!!!
Combines DLLs in one DLL
It would be great to have utility that can record games (including GSOTM) and then show video walkthrough.
I need a utility to export a civ2 or civ3 map to civ 4
I'd love to see a mod/game editor for bts similar to what we had in Civ III Conquests. I'm not a programmer, and being married with kids, full time job, I don't have the time to spend hours and hours on end pouring through code I don't understand. I'd love to be able to manipulate pretty much everything from number and type of religions, resources, civics, units, you name it, with an easy to use and understand graphic interface.
Good grief people.
As a fairly experienced programmer I would suggest you to aim lower. A whole lot lower. I'm in for making a tool if it will only take about a week. But there is as far as I know no way to merge .DLLs and a full blown mod creator would take as long as making the game. Plus it would have to be updated constantly.
Basically I'm up for helping but most of these would require a team of half a dozen people and a few months of part time work. Both things I don't really have. A DLL merger would be absolutely evil to make.
Maybe you should think of shelling out a few hundred dollars for a professional team?
That would be easiest as a mod comp and not a separate utility.
Thats actually reasonable but because I only have the civ 4 titles I can't help there.
There are APPs that do this so I would suggest Google.
@The Navy Seal
My Tag Editor will really help out with this.
If possible, though probably way too hard, I'd want a BtS to Vanilla Converter, Or an easy Add Religion Utility program. Like the one for units, only for religions
My XML Manipulator will help a lot with the conversion, it will let you adjust the tags for the BTS files you can just copy can paste what you want into your stock files.
I'll try it Just a little question: I mushed Classical Religions and Civ Gold 3 together and now I can't build any of the new Religions shrines...
I happen to know that no shrines were included in that mod.
If I go into worldbuilder, there are and If there aren't, someone could do them, hint hint.
I am not a programmer, but I am a lover of every incarnation of CIV. One of ones I loved most was Alpha Centauri...the main reason was the built in capacity to make your own CIVs.
So that is the utility I would like. For this game, a Utility that lets you make your own CIV's and Leaders. Nothing too intensive or game shattering. Just a little app I can launch that will do that for me without having to go into the code.
Thanks so much in advance, and for offering to do stuff like this for us!
