entity_populations

Each <entity_population> element contains only a single tag, giving an id number.

entities

Each <entity> element contains an id tag, and may also contain a name tag.

Entityies are civilizations, groups (which can found sites/religions/attack/defend), or religions.

historical_events

The <historical_event> element is the most complex. Each contains:

  • id - a reference number
  • year - the year in which the event took place
  • seconds72 - the point in the year when it took place. There are 403200 seconds in a year, so a value of 394800 would be a week before the end of the year
  • type - a label indicating what sort of event this is.

The other elements of the historical_event will depend on the contents of the type element. Types include:
