Warning
By using cheats, you betray your fellow competitors. Keep in mind that such a disgrace will be remembered for eternity.

Warning
This means that the use of cheats will be recorded in your saved game.

OpenTTD has a variety of Cheats to make gameplay easier. Cheating is not, and never will be possible in multiplayer games the way it is mentioned in this article, but see below for more information on multiplayer cheating.

To access the cheat menu press Ctrl + Alt + C. This only works in single player games. If you have another program that responds to this shortcut running, please use Ctrl + Alt + Windows + C. If your keyboard does not include the Windows keys, you'll need to use the Ctrl + Alt + C combination, and in order to do that you'll need to first change that other program's settings, or even close it - to prevent it from responding to the combination.

Most of the cheats are self-explanatory but a brief description is available anyway.

Increase money by £10,000,000

Increases (or decreases) available money by £10,000,000. You can press it as many times as you like.

Playing as company #

Allows you to become the AI player, control their vehicles, etc.

Save your game before using this cheat because an assertion error may occur and you'll lose all you have been working on.

Magic bulldozer

The magic bulldozer allows you to destroy industries and other normally unmoveable objects such as lighthouses.

Please be aware that with this option on, if a town grows towards an industry it will eventually delete this industry.

Tunnels may cross each other

Allows you to build tunnels that intersect underground.

Build while in pause mode

Allows you to build whilst the game is paused. This was previously a patch but it was changed to a cheat because it gives an unfair advantage over AI players.

Jetplanes will not crash (frequently) on small airports

Large airplanes don't have a tendency to crash all the time on small airports. They will crash occasionally though, with the same frequency as crashes at other airports.

Enable modifying production values

Allows you to modify the amount of cargo produced by industries.

Switch climate

You can switch a running game between the four climates. This might be useful to obtain vehicles from other climates or just for fun. Note that this might have a few unwanted effects on vehicles, industries and cargo types.

Switch climate cheat: a temperate landscape with a toyshop and a house from toyland, a printing works from arctic and some palm trees from tropical climate

Change date

The time is at your hand! You can go back in time or travel to the future in one-year-steps with this cheat. Unfortunately, it doesn't affect inflation or expired vehicles. Also, travelling before the year in which you began your game prevents the financial infomation from working properly.

Allow Electric Trains to run on normal track

Note
This is not a cheat in 0.7.0, but an Advanced Setting available from the Advanced Settings menu, which disables electric rails altogether.

Allows electric trains to run on normal track, for those that dislike e-rails.

Cheating in network games

The cheats listed on above are not available in multiplayer games. The only way to enable them is to modify the source code and recompile the game running on the server, something which is heavily frowned upon. If you must do this you should at least inform the clients that they are playing on a server with cheating enabled.

There are, however, other ways to "cheat" in a multiplayer game. See multiplayer cheating for more information on this and how to avoid it.

Cheat Effects

If you use or used a cheat in a specific game session, your score will not be included in the High Scores list, in that session, sill cheating can be good for debugging/sandboxing purposes. (It's easy to gain money in this game, even with harder NewGRF's but sometimes you just want to test something out.

Magical bulldozer has some side effects though. As not only you as player gain higher bulldozer rights, also the towns get the ability to remove industries.
