Like many of you I do love the Cheathappens trainers. And I was playing Civ5 and using the trainer but something was missing. And by some good google luck I found a mod that gives a hole new layer to my play style. So I thought I would share it here.
Did I mention this mod also makes ya member thingie grow alot :-P
so the mod is called Ingame Editor (IGE) and made by a dude by the name of DonQuiche.
the magic it does is :
Edit a hex or paint the map: You can either paint the map (left click for 1 tile at once, right click for 7 tiles at once) or select a hex and edit it. The screenshot above illustrates the tile selection (in red).
Build the world: Change terrain, feature, natural wonder, resource, improvements, routes, rivers, ownership, continent arts.
Units: Add new units or remove them, give your new units up to nine promotions.
Cities: Customize the cities as you want: increase population, change buildings, change religions, etc.
Civilizations: Change a leader's gold, faith, culture,give free techs or policies, edit relationships to seed wars or achieve a global peace, etc.
Technologies: Grant or remove technologies, grant a tech and all of its prerequisites at once, grant a whole era at once.
Social policies: Lock or unlock branches (even the ones you're not supposed to have at the same time) and grant/remove any social policy.
Tooltips: The detailled tooltips are here to help you better learn the game by remembering how far an element can be improved.
Respect the constrains... or not: Elements that should not be possible in the standard game (fishes on a hill for example) are grayed to help you design a natural map. But you're free to ignore those restrictions if you want.
Not tied to savegames: You can save and reload your game without IGE if you want, or use IGE with a game that has been started without it.
Gentle with your game: IGE itself is not lightweight. However, when IGE is closed, it absolutely does not interfere with your game, it does not consume a single CPU cycle and it has a negligible memory consumption. It just keeps its bits shut and let you enjoy full performances.
have fun guys
