Supreme Commander cheat

After some fiddling with Supreme Commander, I found out how to cheat in a skirmish game. Of course, you first have to start the game with “Cheats: on”. You can then copy & paste units. Select a unit, press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [C] to copy it. Now press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [V] to paste it. Lather, rinse, repeat.

With this, you can create mutliple commanders to build super fast. You can also build a single unit, then copy it multiple times to create an army. The pasted units appear below the mouse cursor, so be creative with their placement. Be careful, though. The game can crash if you paste too many units at the same location.

Also note that this method isn’t restricted to copying single units - you can select an entire group and copy that. This means every copy & paste action can double your strength!

By the way, I seem to be the first one to publish a cheat for this marvellous game!
