    Civilization 4: Civilopedia introduction

    This section lists all known Civilizations and Leaders, Buildings, Wonders, Units, Promotions, Advances, Terrain Types, Improvements, Resources, and Civ4: Civics featured in Civilization IV. Most of the information in this section was taken directly from the ingame Civiliopedia. All information in this section has been updated for the latest version of the game, which is 1.61. Information on the warlords expansion is not included. There is (will be) a seperate Civilopedia for warlords. If you find any errors in the information presented here, please let us know. We have recently finished updating the Civilopedia. It should now be entirely up to date for the 1.61 patch. Our next project will be to write a seperate Civilopedia for the Warlords expansion. Last updated: November 30th, 2006...

Strategic resources are needed to build certain units, and speed up the production of some buildings and wonders. Their effect is listed. Yield is the extra amount of Food, Hammers & Commerce that improving the resource yields to the tile the resource is on. Under the name of each resource, the terrain types on which the resource can be found are given. These are for standard map settings, obviously on custom-designed maps or map scripts this can be different....

All resources also give a fixed bonus of 1 food, 1 hammer or 1 commerce to the base value of the terrain, in addition to the improvement bonus. This bonus is given even if you do not improve them, or build a different improvement than the standard one on them. For standard improvements the terrain types it can be built upon are listed below the name. Resource improvements can always be built on their respective resources, regardless of terrain. For them, the required technology is listed below the name instead. Farms and Mines are both standard improvements and resource improvements. The latter function overrules the former. So if you build them on one of their associated resources their effect is given in the second table, not the first....

For Terrain Features the number given is the bonus / malus to the normal value. Health indicates any Health bonus/malus the terrain gives to nearby cities. Move means the (extra) movement cost for this terrain, while defense is the extra defense. Please note that these bonusses stack. So a hills with a forest has +2 move and +75% defense. And while a Floodplains is given as +3 food, you will always see them as 3 / 0 / 1 because they are always next to a river. The improvements listed are exhaustive. Improvements not listed can not be build. For the base terrain types, the resources listed are the ones that can be build without any terrain features. Special resources are not counted here. The specific improvement for a resource can always be built, no matter what the terrain type or terrain features. The occurances for terrain features are what you normally see in the game. Using the world editor it is possible to make other arrangements, such as floodplains on top of grassland-hills. The bonusses  / malusses given in this table should still be correct, you should just add them for each terrain feature. You will never see such arrangements in normal games though....

In the 'requires' column bold entries are mandatory, while normal faced entries are optional prerequisites - you only need one of them. Similarly, in the 'Leads To' column, bold entries signify that the tech is a mandatory prerequisite for the named technology (but it can still also need additional techs) while normal faced entries signify that the technology is an optional prereq. This corresponds with the tech tree: Advances linked by lines represent optional prerequisites, whereas techs mentioned between brackets (or in screenshots, listed as icons) represent required ones. Of course, if a tech only has one optional prerequisite, then this prerequisite is effectively necessary -- the table reflects this. For example, in the case of Pottery this means that it requires The Wheel AND either Agriculture OR Fishing, and while you can't research Metal Casting without it, it is only one possible path to Writing (Priesthood and Animal Husbandry being the other ones). In the 'Units and Buildings Granted' column, unique units are in italics. Note that many units and some buildings require additional technologies. Units and buildings are listed under each technology that is needed for them....

  • Civilization IV: Civilization Reference
    Martin Gühmann

    If you've been looking for a comprehensive, interactive reference tool for Civilization IV and its Warlods and Beyond the Sword expansion packs your wait is over. Apolyton Civilization Site staff member Robert "CyberShy" Plomp has exhaustively put together such a resource that comes in a general and unit-speicifc variety.

    Through an array of drop-down menus, mix and match combinations of particulars from the basics such as civilization and civics to particular buildings and bonuses on the 'General' sheet, and type through required technology with the 'Unit' document. Information is displayed in data-rich but easy-to-follow table format with colourful icons and pleasant shading.

    Should you any updates needed in future that have not been applied (e.g. as a result of one or more patches), contact Plomp directly.

  • Civilization 4: Civilopedia introduction
    Martin Gühmann
    This section lists all known Civilizations and Leaders, Buildings, Wonders, Units, Promotions, Advances, Terrain Types, Improvements, Resources, and Civ4: Civics featured in Civilization IV. Most of the information in this section was taken directly from the ingame Civiliopedia. All information in this section has been updated for the latest version of the game, which is 1.61. Information on the warlords expansion is not included. There is (will be) a seperate Civilopedia for warlords. If you find any errors in the information presented here, please let us know. We have recently finished updating the Civilopedia. It should now be entirely up to date for the 1.61 patch. Our next project will be to write a seperate Civilopedia for the Warlords expansion. Last updated: November 30th, 2006...

This bonus is listed the 'Effect' column. In addition all luxury resources give +1 happiness, and all food resources +1 health, to every connected city in your civilization, if they are improved. Strategic resources are needed to build certain units, and speed up the production of some buildings and wonders. Their effect is listed.

Under the name of each resource, the terrain types on which the resource can be found are given. These are for standard map settings, obviously on custom-designed maps or map scripts this can be different....
