XML Changes not taking effect

Posted on Sunday, May 14, 2017

I've wiped every file for GalCivIII off my system, done a complete uninstall, and reinstalled.  I made sure to clear out EVERY file I could locate (Did a search on my C drive for anything with "Gal" in it).  Now, when I make changes to:  

StarSystemDefs.xml, PlanetDefs.xml, and PlanetTraitDefs.xml 

They simply aren't reflected in the game.   I've changed the files in both the main GalCivIII directories AND the Crusade directories.  It's literally like I haven't changed anything when I start the game.
