Spore: Cheats and Console Commands

Posted September 22, 2008 by Rob Rogers in Games

Spore is a game that allows you to control the evolution of a species (that you design) from cellular organism to space exploration (and everything inbetween). There are quite a few console commands that you might find useful during your gameplay, especially early on in the game.


To bring up the console, use the Ctrl+Shift+C keyboard combination. Type in the desired command and press Enter. To close the console, click the X in the corner or press the Esc key.

Commands:

levels -unlock – This unlocks all stages of the game, allowing you to check out all stages of evolution for your species.

moreMoney – Gives you up to 1,000,000 monetary units (only in Civilization and Space stages).

freeCam – Toggles the Free Camera mode off and on.

capturePlanetGIF – Saves an animated GIF of your planet in the AnimatedAvatars directory.

toggleCaptureUI – Toggles the user interface in screenshots so you can get pics minus the UI.

refillMotives – Replenishes your health and hunger.

unlockSuperWeapons – Unlocks all of the mega weapons.

Change Spore’s look with the styleFilter:
styleFilter -filmNoir – black and white
styleFilter -oilPaint – oil painting
styleFilter -none – returns it to normal

Use setConsequenceTrait(trait name here) to set the trait for your species. Change trait name here to one of the following:

cell carnivore
cell_herbivore
cell_omnivore
creature_social
creature_aggressive
creature_mixed
tribe_social
tribe_aggressive
tribe_mixed
civ_military
civ_economic
civ_religious
space_bard
space_ecologist
space_zealot
space_diplomat
space_scientist
space_trader
space_shaman
space_warrior

space_knight

universeSimulatorPirateRaidPlunderFrequency(numeric value here) – set the rate that pirates steal spice from you by entering a numeric value.

universeSimulatorPirateRaidFrequency(numeric value here) – set the rate that pirates will raid by entering a numeric value.

help – lists all console commands. By typing help and then a command, you can get info on that specific command (for example help levels).
