        This is the custom civilization data you can use to modify custom
    civilizations which allows you to optimize them in any way you wish.
    
        If you intend to fulfil hexing civilizations, you should save this document
    and open it in Notepad so you can carry out the quizzes and other tasks.

    1. - *Why should I create my civs with a hex editor? (WSICMCWAE?)*
    ===============================================================================
    
    The main reasons are:
    	- It's more reliable than using the in-built game custom civ maker.
    	- It's much easier, it offers full customizable civ making.
    	- You can edit your civ whilst having Empire Earth running.
    	- Many experts use this method because it's far more efficient.
    
    Other reasons:
            - You can edit or create civilizations without even having Empire Earth
              installed.
            - You can edit/trade your civilizations with your buddies.
            - It can be fun learning how a small portion of the game works.
            - You learn the basics of how to edit hexadecimals, whilst having fun.
            - Because I'd like you to. :-) Which is why I made the guide.
            - Something to do in your meaningless life.
            - For the sake of it.

    3. - *Warning Regarding Hexadecimal Editing*
    ===============================================================================
    
        If you attempt to create a custom civ from scratch, you run the risk of
    messing up your PC, game or scenarios beyond repair. Use at your own risk. I
    shall not be liable in any way for loss or damage of any kind resulting from
    using the information contained in this document, this includes loss of
    goodwill, game stoppage, game failure or any other type of malfunction.
    
        Even though I've never experienced any problems/errors creating OR editing
    my Civs, I cannot be held responsible in ANY way if you end up damaging your
    pc/game or anything related to it. As far as I know, a lot of people do this
    without encountering any problems at all. You shouldn't either as long as you
    do it correctly.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    4. - *Download a Free Hexadecimal Editor!*
    ===============================================================================
    
    1. You'll need a hex editor before doing anything else!
       A free hex editor can be found at:
       http://www.chmaas.handshake.de/delphi/freeware/xvi32/xvi32.htm
       Direct download link:

    ===============================================================================
    5. - *Instructions*
    ===============================================================================
    
    When you've got your free hex editor working;
    
    2. Open up one of your pre-made Custom Civilizations e.g. Swordsman.civ
       from the following folder:
    
    C:\Sierra\Empire Earth\Users\default\Civilizations
    
    If your editing an expansion Custom Civ, use folder:
    
    C:\Sierra\Empire Earth - The Art of Conquest\Users\default\Civilizations
    
    3. When you've opened your civ, you will see many numbers and letters
    
                                _______
     Refer to B                |bonuses
      __|__   ____civ name___  |amount
     |     | |               | |
     V     V V               V V
     _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    |?| | | |S|w|o|r|d|s|m|a|n|?|
    `````````````````````````````
    
    Refer to B____________________________________________________________________
        The first 4 bytes are an integer value, which tells the game how long your
    civ name is (and thus where the name stops and where the bonuses start).
    So for instance if you civ is called  "HelloWorld" (10 bytes) then your file
    would start with: 0A|00|00|00 (notice that the number 10 is represented in hex
    as "0A"). - Contributed by barkin (barkin sympatico.ca)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    civ name______________________________________________________________________
        This is the name which is shown when you load the civilization, this name
    is not used when you pick the civilization. When you pick the civilization the
    names which are used are the actual files names of the civ file.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    bonuses amount________________________________________________________________
        This tells the game how many bonuses you have, for example if I selected 5
    bonuses this number would be 05. You will only need to change this if you
    delete or add extra bonuses. It is always placed straight after the name so
    don't accidentally delete it.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
        All numbers you see after these 3 groups are your bonuses, your bonuses are
    always separated by 4 bytes ( |00|00| ) and the last bonus always has 4
    bytes ( |00|00| ) left over.
    
    -What order are the bonuses in?
        The bonuses are in the order of which you picked them, so if you pick a
    tank bonus, then a bombers bonus, the tank bonus will be the first bonus when
    viewed in the hex editor.
    
    Now open up a one of your civilizations, select the bonus you want to overwrite
    use the table to find out which bonus is what, then just type the new number in
    
    When you are done hit save.
    
    Here is a helpful tool to detect if you have any duplicate bonuses:

    Please note, if the file has not been downloaded in at least x days from the
    location it gets deleted. So to keep the downloads available please download
    from all the locations. Thank you.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    6. - *Cheating with Hex Civs* (NOPE)
    ===============================================================================
    
    Wrong,
        You cannot cheat by adding extra bonuses, if you overspend your 100
    civilization points the game will simply not load the bonuses which you can't
    afford,a nd you'll end up with a crappy civilization.
    
        Also if you hack the civilization (this can also done with a trainer) into
    tricking the game that you haven't overspent your points, you will get a
    message like this:
    
    "Player 'YOURNAME' has a civilization named 'YOURCIVNAME.CIV' which is not
    compatible with the server's ('YOURNAME')."
    And your civilization will not load, at all.
    
        So, don't even try it... Though it is rumoured that you can overspend your
    100 points and play other players without that message being displayed, note
    the word "rumoured". If this is possible, then it is likely that you can only
    do it when you are the host. If anyone has any details on how to do this, drop
    me an email.

    ANSWERS TO QUIZ:
    
     Q1. What is the hex code for civ bonus Infantry - Ranged | 20% Armor?
     A1. Using the table above in the guide we can see it is "8402".
    
     Q2. Does 00 always go BEFORE or AFTER the rest civ bonus code?
     A2. ALWAYS after, check the Aircraft - Fighter codes in the table. There isn't
         a single bonus which starts with 00. The only one that comes close is
         Civ - General - 50% Conversion Resistance which has code "1000".
    
     Q3. Does it matter which order you put the civ bonuses in?
     A3. Nope, put tank bonuses first and aircraft after, they'll still load no
         matter which order you put them in.
    
     Q4. Is it easier to build a civ from scratch, or make one in EE and edit it?
     A4. ALWAYS edit one you've made in the ee civ editor, it's MUCH easier!
    
     Q5. Can I cheat using hexadecimal edited civs?
     A5. No, see section '6. - *Cheating with Hex Civs* (NOPE)'.
    
     Q6. Can I put more than one of the same bonus in my civ?
     A6. Yes, you can increase the speed of your citizens TWICE by simply replacing
         two bonuses with the citizen speed bonus. This can be done with any bonus
         of your choosing!
    
     Q7. How can I work out the name of the civilization with just the hex code?
     A7. Easy, just type or replace the code into the hex editor and it should
         appear on the right as letters. E.g.: a = 61, b = 62, c = 63, A = 41.
         Keep in mind they are case sensitive!
    
     Q8. Who made this guide, and how can I contact this person?
     A8. Me, Oblivion. Via email - oblivion_ee hotmail.com
    
     Q9. I'm still having trouble, what should I do?
     A9. Read section '10. - *I'm still stuck what should I do?*'.

    10. - *I'm Still Stuck What Should I Do?*
    ===============================================================================
    
        Wow, you are still stuck and I assume you have read this entire guide at
    least twice. You are either very young, very stupid, very lazy or several of
    those. However, as I am such a nice person this section has been made just for
    you kind of people.
    
     a) Visit Youtube.com and search Empire Earth, there are literally dozens of
        videos about it there. This user seems to have uploaded most of them:
        http://youtube.com/profile?user=uberswampmonsta
        Make sure you watch ALL of them and read descriptions for help.
    
     b) Ask in forums, chat rooms and online for help. (Don't ask me)
    
     c) Ask a friend, a relative who has a some clue about computers, so you don't
        go asking for your granny for help, keep asking/nagging these people it
        they help you. Persistence pays off.
    
     d) Search the internet for other tutorials about hex editing and read them.
    
     e) If you have honestly reached this point and done absolutely everything then
        I really don't know what to say.
