FactionOverrideDefs vs FactionDefs

Faction Def Modding Question

Posted on Tuesday, September 22, 2020

Can anyone tell me the uses for FactionOverrideDefs.xml vs FactionDefs.xml? I am somewhat familiar with changing a few settings and setting up a modding folder. It seems that the game should use the FactionOverrideDefs xml file as opposed to the FactionDefs xml file that is in the Crusade folder... If I alter the FactionOverrideDefs it doesn't seem to affect the civilizations but when I copy the FactionDefs file into my mod, it pulls that info. I understand there is limited info in the overridedefs... Any help would be awesome! Thank you!
