Timeframe Cheats/Game Editor?
Has Jeff confirmed as to whether or not this release will have any cheat and/or game editor that allows the player to reset the game's timeline back to day one? Based on Exile 3 and the original Avernum 3, major changes occur over time in-game - subsequently, they had game editors and/or cheats that allowed the timeframe to be reset. I loved being able to dink around in the far ends of the map without worrying that the Alien Beasts are eating every child in the northern province.

Based on my 20ish years of experience with Spiderweb, it'll be great game - definitely worth $20, or whatever the release price will be.

There are cheats alright, according to the Hintbook and Extras store page. I have yet to look through if there's a timeline revert cheat available, but I don't see a reason why not: IIRC, there was a town reset in the pfevious Avernums too.

But using such code will likely prevent gaining Steam/in-game achievements, if you care about such things.

I can post the cheat if I find it in the hints, but it'll be a few hours before I get on a computer to do that.

There's one. I'm not sure it is the only timer in the game or if there are hidden cheats related to other stuff that aren't in the hint guide.

calmthetower – Resets the timer for the Tower of Magi disaster.

Just in case the developer sees this - any input as to whether or not that command resets the general timeframe, or just the one specifically referenced?

Also: thank you, Twistor!

There is no cheats to alter the general timeline. It honestly never occurred to me to do that. It'd be a hassle, since I'd have to figure out a way to unkill characters that were killed. It's easy to pust the time later. It's trickier to push it earlier.

Is there any way to stop/start the timer or reverse the day number. I am not talking about resurrecting people going back on past events. Just to prevent future effects. Honestly this is the worst thing that i have seen in spiderweb game and i have played them all(except the original trilogy). Every other game teaches you to take your time and explore,while this one is rushing you to do the main quest,it is re tar ded. I didn't even knew that there is time limit until i saw it in the thread in the codex. Spend 9 days exploring Avernum and now i have to restart to see all the quest and things.
