  • Increase population limit

    PART I -- Find your Rise Of Nations folder in your Microsoft games directory in the program files folder in your C drive. Go into the data folder, and look for rules.xml, right-click the file and select open in notepad. Press Ctrl+F, and type in <POP_CAP> to search for it. From here you can edit the desired population limit entries in quotation marks. Also, search for and edit <MAX_POP_LIMIT> value and type in the same number that you entered for the last entry in the pop cap field.

    PART II -- Then press Ctrl+F, and search poplimits. Edit each category to the desired population cap you would like. Then type in the desired population limits in the data brackets under each category.

    For example, the end result would be:

    <POP_CAP entry0=''2500'' entry1=''5000'' entry2=''7500'' entry3=''10000'' entry4=''12500'' entry5=''15000'' entry6=''17500'' entry7=''90000 pop cap''/>


    <MAX_POP_LIMIT value=''90000 pop cap''/>


    <CATEGORIES id=''poplimits'' title=''Population:''>
    <CATEGORY name=''5000''>
    <DATA>5000 </DATA>
