I know on pc i just set DebugPanel to 1 in the config .ini file but where does the config file live on Mac OS X when installing through Steam?

On a Mac install of Civ 5 from Steam, the config file (and save game files) lives in the user's home directory under Documents/Aspyr/Sid Meier's Civilization 5.


In my case the full path is ~/"Library/Application Support/Sid Meier's Civilization 5/config.ini"

    No idea why these review people think it should be a comment, it's clearly an answer indicating yet another possible location for the config file to live on a Mac. Commented Jul 22, 2020 at 17:31

On some Macs, the config file is instead under:

Library/Application Support/Civilization V
