Cheats & Hints 1

Enable Cheats:

Note: This involves editing a game file. Always make a backup before changing.

Open your Civilization config file (\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\CivilizationIV.ini) with Notepad and change the following line:

; Move along
CheatCode = 0


; Move along
CheatCode = chipotle

Once cheats have been enabled, while playing open up the console using "~" (tilde) then type "help" for a list of cheat commands.

Cheat Code Example: Type Player.setGold 0 1000000 to add more gold.

You can also type Console.CreateDocumentation CommandList.txt to create a list of cheat commands in a text file which can be found in the game directory.

Debug Mode
After applying "CheatCode = chipotle" in the configuration file, you can enter from console windows (open by using ~) the command "game.toggledebugmode" (without quotemarks).

That will enable the cheat-dialog by pressing [SHIFT]+T. From this dialog you can alter amount of Gold and level of technology for players in the game.
