All Console Commands and Cheat Codes in Age of Wonders 4

To open the console command box, use this button combination: Ctrl + Alt + C. This will allow you to enter the Single Player World Map Cheat Codes.

cruijffAllow for unlimited movement within the game. This is a great cheat, so you can effectively move anywhere on the map.
allheroesAdds every hero in the recruitment pool. Heroes are specific within a map, so having this code allows you to recruit any hero regardless of the map you're playing.
barentzGain an entire map vision. If you're familiar with the Warcraft 3 "iseedeadpeople" cheat, it provides the same effect in Age of Wonders 4.
coehoornBreach walls of the selected city. This command allows you to instantly breach fortified city walls, which is one of my favorite cheats to use since it lessens the strategizing needed to siege a city.
demonenDecreases alignment by 20. You should use this if you want to make an enemy out of a certain empire.
dokterwieIncrease your turn counter by 1. This cheat allows you to basically have infinite actions, as long as you keep typing it before ending your turn.
eendrachtIncreases Build the Beacons of Unity counter for Expansion Victory
eenheidGrants all Occupy Provinces Objective for Expansion Victory
engelenIncreases alignment by 20. Allows you to increase your alignment with a certain kingdom, making them your allies in the long run.
forgeForge a random item. Not necessarily the best cheat in the game, but if you want to experiment on some random builds for your heroes, then this is a great way of acquiring items.

forgeallchannelsForge a random item for all item types in each damage channel
