Civilization Scenario Programming Library (985 KB) by Angelo Scotto

CSPL is a C++ library used to access Test of Time memory while ToT is running. You can see CSPL as a new events language very powerful (and complex...) to realize new scenarios, anyway, since CSPL simply modifies Tot memory you can also use it to realize in-game utilities or mod-packs which drastically changes civ game rules. As you can imagine the only drawback is that you need to know a bit of C language to code CSPL programs. (CSPL should be used with Borland C++ 5.5 compiler which can be downloaded for free from borland web site)

CivTweak a scenario field editor (11 KB) by Carl Fritz

CivTweak is simply the coolest Civ II utility ever written. If you are a scenario designer this program is a must have.

  • You can reassign city styles to the civilizations to get the right look. You can even assign city styles without the prerequisite techs.
  • You can change these settings: difficulty, barbarian activity, blood lust, simplified combat, and don't restart tribes. Normally if you mess these flags up, you have to start over.
  • You can add a tribe when you start with less than 7 tribes and have changed your mind.
  • Finally you can change the barbarian form of government (Democracy = unbribable barbarians!) and their gold.

It works with Classic Civilization II, Conflicts in Civilization, Fantastic Worlds, Multi-player Gold Edition AND Test of Time scenario files.

This program requires vbrun300.dll to run.

CivCity scenario file editor (11 KB) by Carl Fritz
Another fabulous scenario editing program. I had the honor of beta testing this program, so I can tell you first hand what a huge time saver this utility is. It allows you change all kinds of city parameters, many of which can only be changed by hex-editing. CivCity allows you to set up trade routes, change trade commodities and select which improvements a city has. City parameters such as owner, founder, the food box, the disorder flag and more can be set.
This program requires vbrun300.dll to run.
