  • contento: increases population happiness by 10 points
  • editor: enables the editor (see the editor section below)
  • economicdifficulty: edit economic difficulty
  • politicaldifficulty: edit political difficulty

Editor mode

To enable the editor mode, hold down CTRL and type editor. You can then access the following editing tools by pressing the corresponding hotkeys:

  • U: add units (spawn people, boats, planes, etc)
  • P: "paint" ground (set the ground terrain type)
  • V: vegetation editor
  • F: fill terrain tool (same as paint but instead of a paintbrush tool this one is a bucket fill tool)
  • Z: bulldozer tool
  • Shift + O (the letter o): add buildings
  • Shift + M: paint minerals (like paint ground but adds minerals into the gound, you can add gold, iron and bauxite)
