Modding Question
« on: July 18, 2013, 11:23:35 AM »
In some XML files, there are tags <TEXT_ID> and another for Description. What, exactly, do these do, and are they really necessary?

Or...are they important to naming a particular campaign file (for example)?

I'm pretty sure TEXT_ID and the other one for Encyclopedia have to do with Unit Texts that you see when you hover over a units icon.

Not just unit. Any text field in the game.
I also have a YouTube channel where I talk about mod development and gaming, do tutorials, and Let's Plays. If you like the content, consider supporting it on Patreon

If I use a file with an established TEXT_ID and such, can I use the same tags for a new map file without causing problems? or, do the TXT tags really not matter at alll to game play?

If I need to change the IDs, if it's a new map (say, a Tournament map with three planets), do I need to sutomize the tags AND place entries into other files to match? Not sure if that made sense... LOL
