After getting the hang of the game I'm trying to brew my ideal version of it. I've read many threads on this forum and searched everywhere online. I've tried many different tweaks, but I can't seem to figure it out myself, so I'll ask it here in the hope someone knows the answer:
1. How do I edit the AI personality for races in GCII Ultimate Edition version (on Steam).
2. How do I edit the race names and descriptions in GCII Ultimate Edition version (on Steam).
So far I've found many different data folders, but none of them seem to affect the races as they appear in the game. I've renamed the "Terran Alliance" into the "Test Alliance", and the "Akilians" into "Test123" in every single RaceConfig.XML file there is, to see if I could change both a major faction and a minor faction. But the game still shows the "Terran Alliance" in race selection when I start a new game, and I found the "Akilians" in a test-game with the maximum number of minor civs. I even tried deleting all of the RaceConfig files, hoping to eliminate those data files that the game didn't use, expecting the game to crash as soon as I got to the race editing screen. But no... the game still managed to get the race information from... somewhere ...just fine! but from where?!
My goals is simple enough:
-Change the AI personalities of the major races to either AIP:8 or AIP:11, as I've read that 8 is good for "normal" civilizations, and 11 for "militant" civilizations. All of the other AIP's seem broken.
- Change the horrible names and descriptions of the Minor factions to something more respectable.
Has anyone succesfully changed these two things on Ultimate Edition?
