TerrainQuery Block

Recommended Posts

I've been trying activating the "TerrainQuery" cheat, as it is supposed to show the cursor coordinate information. (I'm hoping it's not just a X and Y info.)

But no matter how I put on, [on], or any other variation I come out null.

Ok, you are doing Ctrl+X to get the pop up box right? Then type TerrainQuery and press enter. Then select the normal Query tool (the Question Mark) and hover over some terrain.  Note: The city must be established in Mayor Mode for this to work.

A lot of the "Extra Cheats" require a very specific syntax to work correctly. One way to avoid all that, when pressing CTRL+X, right click the box that appears to get a drop-down list, saving you having to type anything.

This is a great way to do it providing you have the Extra Cheats Plugin installed. In plain vanilla, the right-click in the box does absolutely nothing. *;)

Note: The TerrainQuery does work in plain vanilla.

    @rsc204's suggestion is spot on.

    Just did that. Great ! No 'ON/OFF' as SC4D suggest. Works very well and doesn't infringe in the normal query. Again, thanks.

    To which I would answer... WHY wouldn't you have the Extra Cheats Plugin installed? :P

    Yeah, there is no way to turn it off without exiting the city that I know of.

    Actually, you can. When in Mayor's mode, I discovered that when you invoke the cheat TerrainQuery you don't have to write ON. just click on the query icon (the one with a ?), you are on. To turn it off, go to the cheats list, choose TerrainQuery , and add OFF, and you are back in business.

    BTW, with the cheat on ON, you can use it in a normal way too, like checking on a LOT and so on.

    However, modded nets like NWM won't all have their arrows turned off until after the sector is exited to region. This can yield odd pictures in the transit view of the region (some brightly colored roads), but another open & close cycle clears that up.

    What's pertinent to this ? Actually, what do you mean by " all have their arrows turned off. " Aren't you complicating issues ? I do appreciate your comments but sometimes you seem to fly into a never land, and miss the point wholly. What does arrows have anything to do in this topic ?

    I may have crossed the names of two different query cheats. Arrows show on roads when querying routes, and they don't all turn off by command. Sorry 'bout the confusion.
