INTRODUCTION
------------

This program, as its name suggests,  is a map editor for Civilization.
It is able to edit almost  every  feature of your game of Civilization
including money, technologies, city population and terrain position.



COPYRIGHT
---------

This program is free with ST FORMAT.  It may NOT be copied (apart from
your own personal backup) or distributed in any way by anyone at all
ever!  Remember: PIRACY IS THEFT!



TUTORIAL
--------

This section is a step-by-step guide to using the program.


When you first run the program, you are presented with a file
selector.  This enables you to choose the drive and path where your
save games are stored.  NOTE: Only the path is used here, so don't
select a file just yet.


Next you are presented with the opening credits, so just sit back and
watch and admire the hard work that has been put into this program.
Pressing a key will NOT exit from the titles.


After the credits have gone, a list of all the Civilization save game
files in the directory that you have selected will appear.  Select the
one you wish to edit by clicking on it with the mouse.


Next is the information screen.  A list of the game statistics (money,
tribe, difficulty level etc.) is displayed along with a list of all
the technologies in the game, with the ones that you have discovered
shown in light blue.  Clicking on a technology will toggle it on or
off so that you either have it or you don't.  Clicking on the various
statistics will enable you to change them by means of a dialog box.

There are two types of dialog boxes:-
        1)   TEXT:  Here you are asked to enter a string which will
change a specific statistic, eg money, date etc.  Pressing 
will cancel pressing  will enter the statistic.  Any strings
which aren't in the correct format will be ignored.
        2)   LISTS:  Here a box is drawn with a list of things to
choose from.  Click on the appropriate one or press  to
cancel.

NOTES:  1)   When you change the date, the letters "AD" or "BC" must
be included so the program knows what the date actually is.
        2)   Clicking on your tribe with the left mouse button will
allow you to rename it and clicking on it with the right mouse button
will enable you to switch tribes.  Here, the tribes which are dead are
shown in light blue and the tribes which are alive are shown in black.

Clicking on the word "Exit" exits from the program.  You are asked
whether you wish to save your changes.  Click on the appropriate
response and you will be returned to desktop when the program is
finished.

Clicking on the words "Edit Map" will send you to the map editing
section (see below).




THE MAP EDITOR
--------------

This section deals with operation of the map editing part of the
program.  Along the bottom of the screen is a list of icons showing
terrain types and improvements (irrigation, mining, etc).  Clicking of
the appropriate icon will select it.  Clicking on the map will
change the square to the selected type or improve it as requested.

To scroll the map around, use the cursor keys or the keypad as in
Civilization.  Alternatively, you can click  on  the map in the bottom
right corner to move the map.

At the right side of the screen is some information regarding the map
square underneath the map pointer.  Its type is listed along with any
irrigation, mining railroads etc.  If the pointer is over a city, then
it will also display the city name, who owns it and the city
population.

Two of the icons at the bottom require further explanation.  The icon
marked "DU" is a special terrain type that we have found which gives
24 food and 2 trade.  The icon marked "Info" will take you to the city
info screen if you click on a city while the "Info" icon is selected.

The city info screen is very much the same as the statistics screen.
City improvements are shown as dark blue or light blue depending on
whether you have them or not.  The name of the city and its population
can be changed by clicking on them.  Clicking on "Exit" takes you back
to the map editing screen.

Selecting the icon "Exit" returns you to the main statistics screen.


The program has been designed to be similar in operation to
Civilization.  It should therefore be familiar to you and you
shouldn't have any trouble working out how to use it.  NOTE: If you
don't own Civilization, then you should buy it.  If you want, you can
use this map editor on the ST FORMAT demo of Civilization, but the
full game is much better so buy it now!
