Issues with 'Gaia' cheat code (Definitive Edition)

Game version:

  • Build: 46777
  • Platform: Steam
  • Operating system: Windows 10


Playing Raid on Babylon scenario from the Reign of the Hittites campaign, I decided to try the Gaia cheat in order to have some random fun moments.


  • Game can crash after using the cheat. I was gathering some resources and produced a couple of ballistae;
  • Villagers cannot mine gold;
  • When setting up several buildings on the ground, after finishing the first one, builders do not go construct the next ones;
  • When buildings, farms, towers and walls are outside of the line of sight, they disappear;
  • It is impossible to select multiple animal units of the same type when double-clicking them;
  • To use the “select all idle military” hotkey also selects dead animals;
  • It is impossible to control birds.

You could control birds in the original?

If I recall correctly, yes. In the non-definitive game mode, you probably can, by using gaia cheat. Haven’t checked, though.

Was always very useful. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Indeed it was… sad to not have such ability in Definitive Edition mode. In classic mode, villagers are able to even hunt birds if commanded. It’s fun!
