Description:
This mod changes the resources and the technologies view in the foreign advisor 
screen. It is designed to give a better overview of all possible and active 
resource deals. It does not change the rules of the game.


Installation Instructions:

1) Unzip this into the "civ4_install_folder\Mods\" folder. 
2) Open the CivilizationIV.ini configuration file
3) Change the Mod line to read: Mod = Mods\Enhanced Foreign Advisor
4) Load the game.

-----Features-----

General:
 - Displaying the names of the leaders of the other civs can be switched on or 
   off.
 
 - The border around the rows can be switched on and off.
 
Resources:
 - At the top of the screen the available amount is shown for all the resources 
   that a player has extra's of.
   
 - The amount can be configured to show the total available amount or the extra 
   available amount (total - 1).
   
 - The resources that a player can trade with another civ are shown on the same 
   row as the resources that that civ will or won't trade with the player.

 - The resources that a player can trade are divided into two groups. One for 
   the resources for which the player has extra's available and another for 
   those resources for which the player has no extra's.

 - It is possible to group the columns showing resources together as export or 
   import.

 - The amount of gold that a civ can pay per turn is displayed

 - It is possible to show two extra columns to display the resources that are 
   traded in active deals.

 - When the active deals are displayed the total gold amount that is traded is 
   also shown, a positive amount means that the civ is paying the player, a 
   negative amount means that the player is paying the other civ

Technologies:
 - For each other civ three columns are used to display the techs that civ 
   wants, the techs that civ will trade and the techs that civ won't trade.
 
 - An extra column is used to display the amount of gold that the civ can pay
 
 - You can use small (32x32) and large (64x64) icons for the technologies.


-----Notes to Modmakers-----

If you want to use the Enhanced Foreign Advisor Mod in your mod I have tried 
to make things as easy as possible for you. In the Python files I have added 
#< Enhanced Foreign Advisor Start > and #< Enhanced Foreign Advisor End > in 
all of the places that I have made changes to the original files.
