Civilization V Campaign Edition - Debug Mode (Mac)

Civilization is one of the best turn-based game.  Recently, I started playing Civ 5 on Mac.  As usual, I looked for cheat codes to speed up the learning curve.  All I found in the net were all related to PC.

Here is how you do it in Mac.

  1. You will need to edit the config file via Terminal. The file is under /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Civilization V Campaign Edition/config.ini
  2. Change "DebugPanel = 0" to "DebugPanel = 1"
  3. In game, all you need to do is press ~ key to open debug panel.
  4. As far as I know, the only useful cheat is Reveal All.
Have fun!
