Sid Meier's Civilization V Cheats

Sid Meier's Civilization V

Cheat Codes:
Submitted by: Mazid

Debug Mode Reveal map:
Note: Alter game files at your own risk and always make backups. Enter the game folder 
and select the "config.ini" and open it in a text editor. Find the file at the following
default location: Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5

-=Find the line that says=-
; Set to 1 to activate the debug panel

DebugPanel = 0

Change the number 0 to 1 so that it now looks like this:

; Set to 1 to activate the debug panel

DebugPanel = 1

Save the file and start up Civilization 5, then start a new game and press ' / ~ 
(or the key above Tab) and a debug panel will appear on the right hand side of the screen. Y
ou can use this to alter the game in numerous ways.

Spying Trick:
Instead of randomly selecting a successful looking civilization and sending spies on a whim, 
look to the intel that is provided more readily. If you check for possible trade routes and 
notice that you can gain science knowledge through trade, that also means you can send a spy
to that civilization and improve yourself using more devious measures. It's a great way to 
avoid wasting precious resources.

Steam achievements:
Complete the following tasks to unlock the corresponding achievement.

Tips to Religious Culture Victory:
Fastest religious culture victories I have got with bunch of luck. Getting sacred sites 
can be tricky, but you with one or two holy mountains that can be easy.

Another must better way to get a religion than shrines/temples+stonehenge is to use 
faith producing pantheon. I like the ones that give culture and faith from either wine/
incense or gold/silver most in my wide religious games. Those have double benefit, you 
get lots of faith to get the religion, but you also get more culture to fill Liberty+Piety 
pair faster.

On religiously competitive starts you might need to get first one or two policies from 
Piety first, then go to the Liberty. You get religion faster, but expansion is slower 
(not that much with a good pantheon).

Sacred Sites is also harder on harder difficulty settings as all AIs get free Pottery 
starting from King difficulty level. You can remove that benefit from XML-files if you 
wish, many have done that (including me, I play on Emperor, but without free pottery). 
You could also manually pick non-religious civs for your game.

-=Important notes=-
* The Sacred Sites belief is a Reformation Belief.
* The Reformation beliefs are unlocked by selecting the Reformation policy in the Piety 
  social policy tree.
* Hence, you will get to it faster by having good culture generation, rather than faith 
* Hence, if you want to maximise the probability of obtaining it, you need to beeline it 
  straight away at the start of the game. Unlock piety, then Organised Religion, then 
  Religious Tolerance, then Reformation.

I do not know whether you need to have actually founded a religion before being able to 
select a Reformation Belief. Or, if you select your Reformation Belief before you have 
founded a religion, it then becomes part of your religion upon founding it at a later point.
