WARNING: Using a mod may void eligibility for customer support from the game publisher.


Cheater's Panel
Version 1.00
For Tropico 5 v1.10

Adds a new menu screen to the game that can spawn invasions and disasters, grants funds, and adds some very convenient short cuts like: QuickBuild All, Repair All, Rebuild All, Extinguish All, Irrigate All, and Pump Out All

Image


Notes:
  • Access the dialog box through the main HUD on the bottom.
  • The Cheater's Panel will not be available in a multiplayer game.
  • Research buttons will be disabled if you do not have a tech selected
  • New Heir will be disabled if you already have seven dynasty members.
  • Quick Commands will be disabled if there are no qualifying buildings for them.
  • Enabling the 'Cost Free Toggle' will make the Quick Commands free to use.
  • Disasters queue and won't start immediately. Only one disaster can be active at once
  • If you don't want to cheat you can set the config variable 'IAmACheater' to false. This will disable the money, swiss, heir, and cost free toggle. You will still be able to use the Quick Commands, spawn invasions, and spawn disasters. It will even call it self the 'Utility Panel' to make you feel better

Instructions:
  1. Download and install Mod Loader 2.4. Follow the instructions!
  2. Download this mod.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong with this one. The rest of the mods I have appear to be working fine (I can only tell the status of the fog of war one right now), but the panel for this doesn't show up, at least not in the colonial era, which is what I have to work with right now since I'm starting the campaign. I tried to have a look at the file, but these must be compiled lua files or something, because notepad++ thinks it's mostly gibberish ([NUL] and other such things). So I have to ask, what can I do to get it to work on my setup?

EDIT: I think I found it. It's invisible, but it works.

Oops. Forgot to include the image file for the button in the download. I have updated the download in the original post to correct it.

Have you installed it correctly? what exactly isnt working? (the whole mod, certain aspects of the mod etc) Just saying it doesnt work for you is vague and doesnt give us much to go on in regards helping you.

Please explain the problem and post a log file please

Hello,

I apologize for the short information. In the game I do not see the addition to open the menu as shown in the picture above. All I installed as instructed.

Have you installed Mod Loader 2.4? and is your game version 1.10?

(game version 1.10 will have all DLC and be fully updated will all Kalypso updates)

Hi Mac OS X user here with all DLC and be fully updated. I am trying to get this mod to work and wondering if anyone has any suggestions.

Currently I have located my Tropico 5 data: ~\Library\Application Support\Steam\SteamApps\common\Tropico 5
I downloaded and installed Mod Loader 2.4 and installed Cheater's Panel.

When I go to play no Cheater's Panel button along the screen is visible or as far as I can tell invisible. Additionally, I have no Steam workshop mods or any other mods installed other than these two.

Is there any reason to think that these mods only work for Windows?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide,
MDS

Not working for me either. I've installed everything exactly as it should be, and the menu does not appear in-game at all. No icon to open it, no hidden icon anywhere. Funny enough, all my other mods are working perfectly fine.

EDIT: Can confirm that the mod does not show up as being loaded, in the in-game credits.

Mac OS not supported. To date no Mac OS user has taken the initiative to explore modding this game on the Mac. In theory the LUA code should be identical but I suspect that there are additional limitations/restrictions on file loading. More likely it's the mods that are distributed in ByteCode are not compatible.

If someone wants to give me the money to go buy a Mac and another copy of the game plus all the DLC I'd be happy to look into it.

If it is not showing up in the credits when other mods are then it's probably not installed correctly or the file is corrupt somehow. Try replacing the files.

I've noticed when extracting the downloaded file it has its own 'Cheater's Panel' folder with the actual mod files inside.

Are you all just placing the Cheater's Panel folder in the mods folder or are you removing the 'Mods' and 'UI' folders out of the above mentioned folder and merging the contents into the tropico 5 directory folders?

Maybe this could shed a little light on why its not working for some.

1. Download and extract the files
2. open Cheater's Panel folder
3. Copy the included files to the correct directories (Mods files to Mods folder and UI files to UI folder in the tropico 5 directory)

Hope the ones having problems get it sorted

So here's the problem I've got:

All other mods work fine, this only happens with this mod. Updated to the right version, I have my folder structure correct.

Try starting a game without a controller plugged in. This UI mod was made for mouse and keyboard setup. If it still doesn't work then please post a log file so I can see if any errors are being generated.

I bought Tropico 5 from Steam and I can't find the folder anywhere on my PC. Does that mean I'm not playing it locally or I just haven't looked in the right place?

Found the Tropico 5 folder after digging for awhile. I installed the folders in the directory but either it's not working in the game - I can't find any menu.

This is my Tropico 5 folder contents. I left the mods and UI folders alone with their contents in. Do I have to put the files somewhere else? Thanks.

Do you have ModLoader installed also?

If you have, load up the game, get to the main screen and open the Credits. It should load up which mods you have running. Mod Loader and Cheaters Panel should be among them.

I downloaded modloader 2.4 but I can get it to unzip. Sorry I'm not the best student here. I'll try to find another unzip program, I'm using Extractor. Do the mods still work if it's a Steam game?

Yeah, they still work. I use WinRAR, but I've heard the 7zip will work as well.

Okay, if you have everything put into your Tropico 5 folder as described, start the game, go to the main screen and click on Credits. You should get a list of mods you have installed. If ModLoader and Cheaters Panel show up, start a game and it should be the icon on the far right of your main bar.
