[an error occurred while processing this directive] Modification: Data File Definitions


This file defines the Diplomatic States. The active Diplomatic State is selected by logic from within the game. Future plans are to expose the state selection logic to SLIC so state changes can be scripted in SLIC scripts.

Inherit - This defines a diplomatic state to inherit values from. All values from the inherited state will be set first and any values redefined in the current state will override those in the inherited state. Each state can only inherit a maximum of one other state but multiple inheritance levels can exist.
Threaten - This define the percent chance the AI will threaten to get what it wants. Valid values: 0 - 100
RegardDecay - These structures define the decay rates for different kind of regard events. Each event type has a positive and negative decay setting. See the example for proper syntax. Regard Event Types: ScenarioEvent, MilitaryPowerEvent, MilitarySafetyEvent, DiplomacyEvent, GoldEvent, KnowledgeEvent, & ProductionEvent.
PositiveDecay - This defines how rapidly positive regard values will decay
NegativeDecay - This defines how rapidly negative regard values will decay.
