I can't figure out how to access the console menu in Eufloria HD from the Humble Bundle. Every time I press ~, the console opens up but I can't type into it. I've already tried putting "-console" into the shortcut's target property

Do NOT try this if you haven't played the game yet. Eufloria is a wonderful game and should be experienced in the way that is intended, not in the way of cheating.

To cheat, first enable the console by adding "-console" parameter without quotes to the game's shortcut.

In game, first press ctrl+D and nothing will happen. Then press F4 to change faction visibility as well as camera lock.

Press F12 to get desired asteroid ID.

Use ~ to call out the console, and enter a = GetAsteroid(Asteroid ID)

and check that you are indeed the owner of this asteroid: a.owner

this value is 1 for player. Don't panic if it shows error, clean out the input field and try again.

Note: Pause your game before entering any of the following cheats. I have found that sometimes the commands would accelerate time in the game, i.e. everything is faster, way faster for some computers to handle I'm afraid.

  • To add seedlings: a:AddSeedlings(integer)
  • To add enhanced seedlings: a:AddSuperSeedlings(integer)
  • To modify max number of trees allowed: a.TreeCap = integer
  • To add and level up a tree: s = a:AddDysonTree() s:LevelUp() s = a.AddDefenseTree() s:LevelUp()
  • To add a flower to a tree: (you have to have a name previously
    designated to the tree, currently I can't find any method to select
    an existing tree.) s = a:AddDysonTree() s:LevelUp() s:LevelUp() s:LevelUp() flower = s:AddFlower() flower:GrowToMax()
  • To add a LASER MINE!!: (laser mines are, in the game's view, flowers of the defense tree.) s = a.AddDefenseTree() s:LevelUp() s:LevelUp() s:LevelUp() flower = s:AddFlower() flower:GrowToMax()
