Sins of Solar Empire is a real-time strategy game that lets you explore and conquer a vast galaxy. You can play as one of three factions: the Trader Emergency Coalition, the Advent, or the Vasari. Each faction has its own strengths, weaknesses, and unique technologies. You can also customize your game with various mods and scenarios.
But sometimes, you might want to have some extra fun and bend the rules a bit. Maybe you want to start with more resources, research faster, or make your ships invincible. That's where cheats come in handy. Cheats are codes or commands that you can enter to modify the game in various ways. Some cheats are built-in, while others require editing game files or using third-party tools.
