How to use the debug menu
To use the debug menu, you have to press the ~ on your keyboard* and it should open the console to look like this

This is the console where commands are put in.

The 2 arrows on the left do 2 diffenent things. The up arrow brings the console log which holds code you have put in.

The down arrow brings down the Debug View menu, which has different options to choose from.
Debug View menu options
Frame Statistics: Shows graphic information on things like frame rate, resolution, and vram usage.

VFX Statistics: An option shows info on video effect processes like effects simulated.

Time of Day: An option to change the time of day in the game with a slider, when the time changes, so does the lighting effects (i.e sky), this would mainly be used for people who want to take screenshots with different sky lighting.

Camera: Shows info on y and x axis, zoom, tilt, and height of the camera.

Lua Statistics: Shows info on Lua code working with the graphics.

Memory: Shows what the vram is being used for.

* The tidle key (~) is not the key usually used for all keyboard formats, if you have a keyboard in the different format of an US International keyboard layout, your key might be in the same area as the tidle key in the US International keyboard layout, shown below.

For those of you using the Steam Linux version of Civ 6, the AppOptions.txt file is located under your home directory at .local/share/aspyr-media, NOT under
.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Sid Meier's Civilization VI as one would expect.

That would be nice, but we don't know till we try.

Ah that sucks. Maybe the devs will add a keybind modifier in the options if I ask them...
TheSewerDog  [autore] 18 set 2017, ore 18:19 
I'm sorry but I do not know of a way to change the key for opening the console as there is no option nor file that I can find to change the key.

is there a way to change what key it opens on? My tilda key is broken and thus doesn't work.
