View Full Version : City Editor for FOF2007?

There was a city editor for FOF2004. Is that a possibility for the new version?

The one for FOF 2004 should work. The file structure for the cities.fdt file is exactly the same for FOF 2004 and FOF 2007. Also, citydata.fdt has the same file structure in both versions.

Hmmm, it's not working. It says it's only compatible with FOF2004. When I try to run it outside of the game it says it's trying to read the cities.fdt file.

Well the file structure (in fact the entire file) is the same for both cities.fdt and citydata.fdt except that FOF 2004 has a reference to verion 5 and FOF 2007 has a reference to version 6.
Here is what you need to do. Use the city editor on FOF 2004. Then once you are done save the new files and use a hex editor to change the 5 to a 6. And copy the fdt files to the FOF 2007 directory.

What's a hex editor? :)

I've taken this discussion to PMs.
Yeah, it looks like I shouldn't have bothered to put that version check in there. twothree's solution should work. At some point I will try to update the program for FOF2007, but I can't guarantee that I'll have time anytime soon.
