Edit resources

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the ‘proto.xml’ file in the ‘data’ directory in the game folder. Note: You may first need to uncheck the ‘Read Only’ attribute of that file’s properties in Windows Explorer.Search for the text ‘CrateOf’. You will find CrateofFood, CrateofCoin, CrateofWood, CrateofFoodLarge, CrafteofCoinLarge, and CrateofWoodLarge.

For all these entries, find the tag ‘InitialResourceCount’ and change the count to whatever desired. For example, the normal crates each have ‘100.000’ of the resources. You can change the ‘100’ to ‘99999.000’, etc. Make sure you do this for all the crates; sometimes a map will give you a large crate of something, and smaller ones of something else, etc. This works best because every map you play in campaign or skirmish starts you with some ‘crates’ of resources, which your settlers will gather out. This will edit the crates to have huge amounts of resources in them. Howe ver, it still takes a long time to get the resources out of the crate for the settlers, because there are so many. If you are impatient, search for ‘Settler’ in the ‘proto.xml’ file and find the tag for GatherCrate. Change the value to whatever desired, preferably something very high (for example, ‘99999’). They will pull the resources out of the crate instantly.

Invincible units

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the ‘proto.xml’ file in the ‘data’ directory in the game folder. Find a the heading for a unit in the file (for example, ‘Explorer’). Locate the area below the heading that starts with the <Flag> tags. Add a new line under that area with:

  • <Flag>Invulnerable</Flag>
  • <Flag>DoNotDieAtZeroHitpoints</Flag>

Super heroes

This is similar to the ‘Edit resources’ trick, except only your side benefits and not the CPU. This trick will enable your hero character to move very fast on the map; have lots of hit points; destroy any enemy unit/building in one click; etc. Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the ‘proto.xml’ file in the ‘data’ directory in the game folder. Search for your hero’s first name plus ‘SPC’. For example, for ‘Amelia’, it is ‘SPCAmelia’. You should find something that looks like the following:

  • </Unit>
  • <Unit id =’458′ name =’SPCAmelia’>

The XML tags of interests are as follows:

  • <MaxVelocity>5.0000</MaxVelocity>

  • <TurnRate>18.0000</TurnRate>
  • <InitialHitpoints>850.0000</InitialHitpoints>
  • <MaxHitpoints>850.0000</MaxHitpoints>
  • <LOS>24.0000</LOS>
  • <ProtoAction>
  • <Name>BuildingAttack</Name>
  • <Damage>14.000000</Damage>
  • <DamageType>Siege</DamageType>
  • <ROF>3.000000</ROF>
  • </ProtoAction>
  • <ProtoAction>
  • <Name>DoubleBarrelAttack</Name>
  • <Damage>750.000000</Damage>
  • <DamageType>Ranged</DamageType>
  • <MaxRange>16.000000</MaxRange>
  • <ROF>3.000000</ROF>
  • <DamageArea>1.000000</DamageArea>
  • <DamageFlags>GAIAEnemy</DamageFlags>
  • </ProtoAction>
  • <ProtoAction>
  • <Name>HandAttack</Name>

  • <DamageType>Ranged</DamageType>
  • <MaxRange>16.000000</MaxRange>
  • <ROF>3.000000</ROF>
  • </ProtoAction>

  • <MaxRunVelocity>70.0000</MaxRunVelocity>
  • <TurnRate>68.0000</TurnRate>
  • <InitialHitpoints>99999.0000</InitialHitpoints>
  • <MaxHitpoints>99999.0000</MaxHitpoints>
  • <LOS>99.0000</LOS>
  • <ProtoAction>

  • <ROF>1.000000</ROF>
  • <DamageArea>1.000000</DamageArea>
  • <DamageFlags>GAIAEnemy</DamageFlags>
  • </ProtoAction>
  • <ProtoAction>
  • <Name>HandAttack</Name>
  • <Damage>9999.000000</Damage>
  • <DamageType>Hand</DamageType>
  • <ROF>1.500000</ROF>
  • </ProtoAction>
  • <ProtoAction>
  • <Name>MusketAttack</Name>
  • <Damage>9999.000000</Damage>
  • <DamageType>Ranged</DamageType>
  • <MaxRange>50.000000</MaxRange>
  • <ROF>1.000000</ROF>
  • </ProtoAction>

Note: Do not set the any of the <MaxVelocity>, <MaxRunVelocity>, or <TurnRate> values too high. This will cause your character to ‘jump’ instantly from one spot to the next because their movement speed is so fast. This makes it difficult to move/track your character around the map. The <ROF> or rate of fire should be set to a low value. This acts as a delay. The lower the value, the lesser the delay. Note: You can test your changes while the game is running. Just save the current game. Switch over to your text editor, then make changes to ‘proto.xml’ and save the file. Switch back to the game, then reload saved game.
