I had enough of being stuck with the standard game settings and waiting for modding tools from BlueByte.
So I did some research and extracted some files that allow tweaking various settings in the game.
This is just a few, there are more - this was enough for me, so I did not extract the rest.
I expect nice mods to come after the release of this package.
- a mod that would alter the buildings so that they store much more resource piles.
- a mod that alters war machines to make them more useful/powerful.
The tools are here, the rest is up to You.
The files included have been extracted from the "Settlers 4 Gold" English version patched to v2.50.1516.
I suggest that You use the same game version to avoid crashes and abnormal functionality.
The package includes two directories:
The directories should be extracted to the Settlers 4 root directory. (Where You installed the game.)
CONFIGAnimals.cfg - contains the settings for the animals roaming the maps.
GAMEDATABuildingInfo.xml - contains the building stats for each race.
GAMEDATABuildingTrigger.xml - contains the building triggers for each race.
GAMEDATAjobInfo.xml - contains the job infos for each race.
GAMEDATAjobSoundList.xml - contains the job sounds.
GAMEDATAObjectInfo.xml - contains the static objects that can show up on the screen.
GAMEDATAsettlerValues.xml - contains the settler stats for each race.
GAMEDATAVehicleInfo.xml - contains the vehicle stats for each race.
Edit these files using a plain text editor (such as NotePad, or an XML editor to You liking). Once You alter a setting, do not load a game - game will crash sooner or later - always start a new game. Do not play multiplayer games without having the exact same settings as the others - game will crash.
There are some rumours saying that there are no cheats for v2.50.1516. Do not let Yourself be fooled, of course there are. Here they are: Open the chat dialog in game (just hit ENTER) and type the following:
Well, this is it, enjoy.
