Network Subfiles

From SC4 Encyclopaedia

Jump to: navigation, search

This page pertains to the format of the Network Subfiles within the Savegame files. These files have Type IDs 6A0F82B2 (Network Index), C9C05C6E (Network Subfile 1) and CA16374F (Network Subfile 2). They can be viewed using the SC4 Savegame Explorer, but not edited. These subfiles were decoded by RippleJet.

Appendix 1.1

Tile numbering starts in the NW corner, which is tile number 0x00000000.

  • Tile number 0x00000001 is to the east of that tile.
  • In a small city, the first tile in the second row is 0x00000040.
  • In a medium city, the first tile in the second row is 0x00000080.
  • In a large city, the first tile in the second row is 0x00000100.
  • In a small city, the last tile in the last row is 0x00000FFF.
  • In a medium city, the last tile in the last row is 0x00003FFF.
  • In a large city, the last tile in the last row is 0x0000FFFF.
