    Editing a save game file in Single Player

    In only the single player mode, I enjoy long games.

    I was wondering if its possible to edit a game under way, such as say I find a very bad area of terrain, and wanted to adjust it to a better and more forgiving conditions, is it possible?


    Next, is it possible to change the total turn time from 1000 to another number?

    I am playing strictly conquest, if I am playing conquest, am I able to exceed the 1000 turns?

    Thanks, its been awhile and was trying to refresh my memory!

    I'm Quintillus - but forgot my password a few years ago and no longer had my original e-mail account, so I created a new one with the next Roman emperor's name instead. To answer more definitively - my editor does not allow modifying any save games. I actually started writing code for handling save games a month or two ago, but it isn't ready yet, and I don't spent nearly as much time on the editor as I did in 2009 - 2011. And unfortunately, I'm not aware of any other way to change the terrain in an existing save game, or to increase the overall scenario turn limit beyond 1000.

    However, the 1000 limit is for turns for a scenario - there's anything preventing playing beyond 1000 turns unofficially. And with some help from a weight on the Enter key, I just verified that now to be sure of it.

    I have not played CIV III Conquests in years, have been toying with reinstalling again.
    I really enjoy playing single player scenarios where I can play an hour here or there or several hours with no pressure to get a save out or meet up at a certain time for MP. I may look into this Editor. For the record I always enjoyed the CIV II Conquest Editor for things like road movement or terrain upgrades bonus and such.

    Take care

    I have all sorts of editor threads that I have read and reviewed, alas no answer.

    I can use the CIVIII MULTI TOOL to alter many factions of the game however cannot change terrain in game.

    If anyone see this and has an answer, please fire off an answer!

    Trust you and the Missus and the Grandkids are all doing well.

    In answer to your question(s), I have no idea. Sorry, but I am not the technically savvy type. Suggest you try snoopy369.

    Thanks

    It looks like I will be ahead of game by simply using editor and fixing map to be more forgiving from beginning.

    be well to your family as well!
